Take a sheet of paper. Draw a triangle on it, using straight edges...

I discovered bluegrass by pure accident on SiriusXM

Re: Travel insurance for elderly visitors

OK - an update!

I just visited by outlaws to make sure what they got was what they need.

They got insurance for a list of multiple conditions, many physical in nature, and one that is...

Re: Brexit from a British-expat-in-America's point of view

This stems from Norway being in the EEA, IIRC. The EEA was created in 1994, and the EU in 1992.

In return for free access to EEA/EU member states from a trade perspective, Norway also has to...

A little hazy now after 20+ years, but I remember when I went through the Chinook helicopter ground school, when we covered the fuel system, being impressed at some of the numbers. It's about 1 ton...

Re: Consequences of the UK leaving Europe

That requires a separate treaty - it is not automatic.

Re: Planespotting

I'm curious - how long does it take to stick a boat load of fuel on to a 747?

Is it mutliple tanks in parallel, or just the one hose etc?

Re: Travel insurance for elderly visitors

We often found the websites are no good - they'll turn you down, BUT if you speak to a live human being, then things can be different.

Don't speak to a non-live (dead?) human being. That would...

Re: Consequences of the UK leaving Europe

Norway is part of the EEA, and as such has to comply with a boatload of laws, regulations and standards if it wishes to trade without tariffs etc being imposed... AND I understand it has to accept...

Re: WTF in America

Given that there were only about 20 places on the planet the Brits didn't invade, geography of the British Empire is pretty much geography of everything!!

Re: 2016 Election

That's quite a paraphrase - using your own words to say something that somebody didn't say, but you claim they did say... Interesting. You should work for a political campaign! Or as a 'journalist'!
