            heh... I keep wondering if I've been quoted on this thread somewhere too!

              This is more of that 6mm/10mm earth wire nonsense:

              If it needs to be upgraded you should do that immediately as someone might get electrocuted before your next inspection
              For a minute, I thought this guy was being sarcastic, but it seems he is perfectly serious!

                There is no general need to open windows to ventilate a house in the UK.

                  the question arose whether the right to use a lavatory could be an easement.
                  And you didn't think it was worthy of this thread?

                  easement
                  ˈiːzm(ə)nt/
                  noun
                  noun: easement; plural noun: easements

                  1.
                  Law
                  a right to cross or otherwise use someone else's land for a specified purpose.
                  2.
                  literary
                  the state or feeling of comfort or peace.

                    Well, all lavatories are see

                        Surely this is ellegal?
                        What the difference between illegal and unlawful?

                        Unlawful means something's against the law. Ill eagle is a very large sick bird.

                          Illegal means against the law, unlawful means not following the law or the rules.
                          A foul in football is unlawful, but not illegal.
                          Travelling at 40 miles an hour in a 30 is both unlawful and illegal.

                          Ellegal sounds like a french law that only applies to women.
                          When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                          Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                            That could only have been written by an estate agent. Nature, or nurture?

                                  It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

                                  I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                                  I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

                                  It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

                                  My friend's BMW is still at the garage, so he has been using his old Audi A6 automatic estate.

                                  He rang me this afternoon: Could I give him a lift to pick up his wife from work, as the Audi was now playing up? The symptoms he described sounded like a binding handbrake, so I suggested I put...

                                  And the EU cannot leave the withdrawal agreement without the UK's permission - the arrangement works both ways.
                                  But, both the UK and the EU get to leave the withdrawal agreement once a more permanent trade deal of some type has been agreed (or if the transition period comes to an end without a...

                                  Looks like the government is on the verge of repatriating 150,000 holidaymakers over the next 48 hours and yet people seem to think they're not capable of putting food or medicine on the shelves after we leave the EU.

                                  That's great.

                                  Still no meaningful and definitive list of the proposed benefits anywhere.
                                  Even if only so that in, say, a decade, we can check to see if they've been achieved.

                                  And, given that there are significant concerns about leaving (which aren't countered by labelling...
