      Too clever for his own good. The courts do not like that.

          His planning and architectural skills seem well matched.

                I would move out and rent it to a group of single, pregnant, lesbian asylum seekers and see what effect that had on decision

                    Or, as it's a castle:
                    a. he could move it two squares along and jump his King over it; or
                    b. he hopes that it will rook the Local Planning Authority.

                      just the picture of the people involved made me think "pull it down" - they did themselves no favours, especiallly the lady in the very very low cut dress (meow)

                                The Daily Mail Newspaper ( 19 July 2017 ) reported " the ice served by some leading fast food chains in their soft drinks is contaminated by faecal bacteria, it has been revealed "

                                Faecal contaminants in ice cubes are probably the least of your problems in fast food outlets. If you knew what goes into some of the food you would not touch it, let alone eat it.

                                Freezing bacteria doesn't often kill them, cooking them has a better kill rate.
                                Essentially, people need to wash their hands properly and they don't.

                                You're meant to wash them while you sing happy birthday twice (slowly) so you do it long enough.

                                I worked in McDonalds and various pubs while doing my A Levels/taking my gap year.

                                I still eat in McDonalds (and drink in various pubs, although not the ones I worked in!).

                                I agree.

                                It doesn't require any change in the law to achieve that, though.
                                Being scarred by acid is the same as being scarred with any weapon (if quicker).
