Northumbria is a much older kingdom than Scotland (it includes part of Scotland too).
Which is one thing they'd obviously lose, in terms of work.
The UK has had a long history of subsidising Scotland. I'm not that fussed if they stay or go, save for the fact that the border may be more difficult.
Come on. It's simple. "You're"="You are". You can do it. I know you can figure it out.
You can't definitively tell the difference between nine and ten. However, nine is generally a little longer and less abrupt. I'd guess that I could get over 90% accuracy lip reading people who are just saying nine and ten. General speech is a different matter.
I can lip read a little (my hearing was awful as a child). I still always look at people's mouths when I'm talking with people to get extra information - my hearing's currently worse than average, but not too bad - I have trouble with background noise.
There have been some times watching quiz shows when I've read the contestant's lips (when they're conferring) to get the answer they're going to say before they've said it, and repeated it to the room. That being said, I agree it's far from an exact science.
I _hate_ (hate hate and hate again) audio and video being out of sync, because it completely throws me. I can't watch video with bad audio syncronisation, I just have to listen to it.
With regards to the Twilight bad lip reading example, I could tell that some words were off, but not too many. Like I said, it's not an exact science, and I agree that 1% false positive would be very optimistic.
I assume the total from Scotland is substantial
Scotland is about 10% of the UK, by population. As a reference, London has more people, as does Yorkshire.
I assume you're also irked by Boston, Southampton, Clacton and even Downton?
-ton is a very common town suffix derived from old English, does not mean town, and is not pronounced town.
Indeed. Finland is one of those peacenik non-aligned countries that has never had to concern itself with Russian imperialism
I hope this is sarcastic. Finland has more than enough experience of Russian aggression.
You don't have batteries at home?
Keeping a few charged aaa batteries in the house is useful not just for digital thermometers. They are also used for other things which you may need too.
TVs are often awful for gaming, having very high input lag. Some can have over 50ms, equivalent to a decent internet connection. Yup, that's right - there's more lag between the computer and the screen than there is between the computer and a server hundreds of miles away.
Note I'm not talking about response time or refresh rate here.

I used to deliver tyres. One particular drop we had often weren't there, and one time I was just told to unload all the tyres, and leave them in front of the garage. It was about £20,000 worth (about 200 high end tyres), and I did have to unload them all myself.
ps. unloading tyres is an example of a job that is about 5 times as fast with two people compared to one person.
Hello, Id like to report a home invasion. You got a dead body you need to come out here and clean up.
You seem remarkably calm for someone who's just shot their daughter.
I wasn't going to go all grammar nazi.... but since it was repeated.
It's not "the single, most damaging, thing", it's "the single most damaging thing".
If you have enough turbines the wind is always blowing somewhere, and the overall output of the entire fleet never drops below some predictable level.
You can have enough more than enough electricity generated in the east for the east, and more than enough in the west for the west. The problem comes when we have to move electricity. It's not lossless.
Wholesale, we had _negative_ energy prices for about a month last year in the EU because of lots of wind and a warm autumn. It was cheaper to pay people to take electricity than to shut down the turbines providing it. If it were possible to move energy about easily, this obviously would not have happened.
