  1. From what I have read a number of the larger shoots hold large numbers of birds back to release later in the season. If these are still on antibiotics, then they are not fit to eat until they have got it out their systems. I doubt anyone checks which shot birds were released when though.
  2. Shooting Vertically...

    If you shoot vertically, the projectile could land on you or someone/something nearby. Without air resistance, the laws of physics say it will land at the same speed. However even with air resistance, I reckon the terminal velocity of a catapult ammo is high enough to hurt or cause damage!
  3. Guests

    Robots and spiders = guests.
  4. Vote Tory To Deliver Brexit

    It would be better to just to mark the ballot paper incorrectly as our voting system is not secret. Your electoral roll number is recorded against the numbered counterfoil of your numbered voting slip. I questioned this the first time I ever voted and I have questioned it several times since. The official response is that it is a secret ballot, the numbers are to prevent electoral fraud and the counterfoils can only be matched with the voting slips by a court order. Pah!
  5. Horses And Cattle

    Speak to them!
  6. Labour Sinking To New Lows

    What load of tosh - anyone with half a brain can see that is a highly offensive comment, regardless to whether it could be some kind of attempt to play on words.
  7. Wrasse

    Large live shrimp on the float, just off the kelp.
  8. What Next!!!!!!!

  9. Suicide Question ......

    I know several people who have been saved from otherwise what have been a successful suicide and all but one regretted it and went on with their lives afterwards. I also know a few people who made somewhat half-hearted attempts too, as a cry for help.
  10. Shotgun Licence

    In short yes, but it is likely to depend on what they have been convicted for. You could speak to your local firearms officer informally first maybe.
  11. Holiday Terror Advice......

    They have not considered the native language in the countries where such attacks are likely occur. It is unlikely to be English I'm afraid!
  12. Paris

    It looks like a strike by French air traffic control : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-149058/Flights-cancelled-French-air-strike-bites.html EDIT - I'm not sure now as I can't verify the date of that article.
  13. A Couple Of Hours Freelining

    Sounds great. However we can't see any of your photos!
  14. While we view very muslim suspiciously, of course the media (and others) will highlight when they do good and when they do bad.
  15. Whats Going On In London?

    The Muslim Council of Britain have issued statements and given a speech condemning these atrocities. http://www.mcb.org.uk/press-conference-london-bridge-attack/
