Chili's pays £2/hour. The staff are paid with your tips.

Not with my tips. I don't eat at Chili's, nor do I live in the UK. But yes, restaurant wait staff often don't even get the minimum wage. Disgusting, isn't it?

I dunno why he put a £ sign there but I don't think anyone gets paid £2 an hour legally in the UK, nor is Chili's around. There was one in Canary Wharf I think but it closed.

Mythbusters weren't able to replicate the 'getting a shock through a stream of piss' thing. So I suspect it doesn't really happen. The real solution to the repeated problem would be to give the citizens and public officials of Portland a sense of reality such that they understand a little of something in a huge fucking amount of something is nothing to give a fuck about. ;) Especially when there are birds shitting in that same something.

It has been speculated one reason the governments generally dodge the UFO issue is that if they were ever identified as a real force(s) of some kind, then the people would demand that something be done about stopping it. It's not clear anyone would have the ability to DO anything about it and when your government can't protect you, what good is the government? So a problem like this would have to be denied.

Another reason to deny it is that it's bollocks. We aren't being visited by space aliens and anyone who thinks we are is delusional.

When it comes to issues like this, the government should do whatever the best scientific advice says to do. To 'let the baby have his bottle' by caving in to a rabid public just illustrates people in government for what they are - unprincipled dicks who will say and do anything to get the job.
