I did say to ask the flight attendant, just incase they threw a wobbly, but it was ok.


He should have given the first class seat to his wife and sat in the main cabin with his kids.

Edit: Just read in another of your posts that you're in France, not Windsor; that's cheating

"The school insider said: “Apparently it’s a health and safety issue. Staff have been told to stop making triangle-shaped flapjacks immediately. "

Presumably. Square would clearly present a hazard and, well, rectangles... it goes without saying really....

Editing to add... I love that they have a "School Insider" to expose this.

An added bonus is the circular ones would probably fly further.

Remember when school used to be fun?

I always remember hearing a story about someone who nicked the small sample of Strontium-90 our physics department used to have, back in the 1980s. Ran off with it in their pocket - not realising that the two best absorbers of radiation in the human body are the testicles
