Good point. And, for my money, I prefer Apple's approach to Android's. We may get to the point where screens are high enough resolution I don't care about pixel accuracy, but we're not there quite yet.

Isn't it cool that there are several competing options in the market? I think that's a win, don't you?

Football teams all over Europe use international players - iirc, the premiership is about 1/3 English, the rest are foreign. And that does include Africa, and every other continent on the earth. Doesn't mean we call it the world anything though. Doing so for a club competition would seem a little obtuse, and arrogant.

I guess it's up to you what you call your club competitions.

It's not possible to not convict innocent people. There are always going to be outlier cases in which the person is innocent, but all the evidence points to them.

This is shown by the phrase "beyond reasonable doubt". It's not "beyond any doubt". There can still be a possibility that the person was innocent, and you should still convict in our current legal system. You may not like it, but that's how every legal system basically works.

Why is this modded up? It's nothing to do with the story. In England, just about every single city is on the coast, so that's not relevant. We also know about flash floods too, which, due to our climate, occur relatively regularly. Only last fortnight or so, we had flood warnings near where I live. If you find a house in the UK that's not at risk of flooding, it's on top of a hill.
