Some Comedians (The Chasers) in Australia booked and checked in online for a flight using the names Mr Terry Wrist and Mr Al Queda. When they didnt show for their flights, the calls across the terminal were pretty comical.

Chasers war... fucking classic!

yes.. so..much.. as.. in Europe they are registered and regulated AS A BANK. In Europe storing that cash in paypal means that,like a bank, you know... because it's registered and regulated as a bank... that money was in a bank when money gets deposited.

In Europe, PayPal is registered as a bank in Luxembourg under the legal name PayPal (Europe) Sàrl et Cie SCA, a company regulated centrally by the Luxembourg bank authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF)[74] (note that all of the company's European accounts were transferred to PayPal's bank in Luxembourg on July 2, 2007.[75]) Prior to this move, PayPal had been registered in the UK as PayPal (Europe) Ltd, an entity which was licensed as an Electronic Money Issuer with the UK's Financial Services Authority (FSA) from 2004. This ceased in 2007, when the company moved to Luxembourg.

[rant on] What this boils down to is the non-smoker/ex-smoker brigade now getting pissed off because.... MY FUCKING GOD SOMEONE APPEARS TO BE ENJOYING A VAPE!!!!!
Now while they might look like smoking.. they are not... there's no tobacco, no tobacco smell and, those like me who much prefer coconut,blueberry and vanilla flavours.... well... well....we are just putting those FUMES into the air for others to breathe......
new for those idiots... water vapour != smoke... it doesn't smell the same(as it isn't), doesn't taste the same (as it isnn't) and isn't full of toxins(it may only have one.. nicotine)
Oh and nicotine can't gibe you cancer....(br) Yeah.. I use a kanger tech vape and it saves me a fortune., tastes fucking great. i don't cough and spluter and i save a fortune(9 GBP per month vs £50 per week!)

davidshenba (2536122) writes "Recently, the World Health Organization called for e-cigarettes to be banned in public places and workplaces. The WHO said this was because e-cigarettes could increase the levels of toxins and nicotine in the air. It also warned that e-cigarettes may introduce smoking to non-smokers. But now researches have criticized this move saying that e-cigarettes can actually save lives and hence their use should be encouraged."

"Scotland has only been invaded by one country in the last 1000 years, it's a country to our south."

Why do you think that might be? Do you think, if say, Scotland was independent and the rest of the UK left it to fend for itself that you wouldn't have been attacked by the Nazis?

The whole reason Scotland hasn't been invaded by anyone other than the English in the last 1000 years is because the English have been running the single biggest empire in history for most of it and Scotland has thrived and been protected as a result of that.

"we just don't like the arseholes in Westminster telling us what to do (neither does large areas of England as it happens)"

Sure, and I'm in one of those parts of England where we have even less localism than you because we don't have a devolved parliament, but the idea of independence is far more retarded because we'd be even worse off again - sure we'd have more local politicians but you think someone in Glasgow is really going to be any more represented by a parliament in Edinburgh than they are London? All Salmond is selling you is that he'll get to fuck you over instead of the politicians in London, god only knows if Salmond's deal with Trump to overrule the rights of a Scotsman and his local council so that Trump could build a golf course isn't evidence of that I don't know what is - he doesn't give a shit about you any more than the politicians in Westminster and he's proven that enough times already.

Moving the place the people in control of you sit changes fuck all, increasing the accountability of whoever controls you and changing it to a relationship of serving you rather than controlling you is the only option to achieve what you're after, and you can do that far more prosperously in the union.

But perhaps instead of chasing independence you'd have worked with those of us in England to get that accountability and improved localism for the regions we might have got somewhere, but instead you're taking the worst possible option out of laziness.

Thankfully though, it seems that plenty enough Scots aren't quite retarded enough to take the stupid option that you're pushing so fingers crossed we can soon start focussing on a solution that makes sense, rather than one that's destructive fed by petty populist nationalist rhetoric.

fucking save me from this poorly constructed bullshit nonsense!
Westminster even drew up plans to LET SCOTLAND BE over run by the nazis in world war two .
