    Well I'm quite sure that a light beard has a helluva lot to do with it.

    This is just what you boys need:
    Schick Silk handle + 7 blades from Aldi next Wednesday

    I have actually been meaning to post that I cracked open the new Schick handle and 4-blade jobbie a few...

    Thanks poundy, but no cigar.

    It's the thin edge of the wedge of dumbing down, and I refuse to be part of it. Next thing you know, punctuation goes out the window, along with capital letters, no more paragraphs, and everything...

    Oh no, no, no you don't. Apostrophes sort the men from t' boys, and the boys from t' boy's boys. Like good diction and spelling, they just require a modicum of effort.

    Sometimes that is ok, but one of the things I have to do is keep the total file path as short as I can because they can get very long indeed, and then they get truncated.

    I'm a bit of a fan of the Alt keyboard for special characters but I can't find a way of typing an En or Em space (double or triple space). In excel I can insert a symbol from the special characters...

    Only if you are prone to posing on the steps of Parliament with your assault rifle as a protest, which is not possible in Australia, so I guess the answer must be no. :U

  33. What about a bit of nationalisation? Could it work?

    One for the economists amongst us I suppose.

    We are now essentially down to one airline in Oz. We all know what will happen to air fares as a result. Is it time to nationalise Qantas to ensure...

    Well said Dom. It will be interesting to see just what economic damage comes out of this. Will it indeed be as bad as the forecasts? Will we be able to recover much faster than we have thought? (in...

    Spot on Pete, and I'd be mightily surprised if very hard thinking on that is not already underway. Perhaps in some cases it might lead to a forging of greater bonds and partnerships between very...
  36. Will a vaccine be possible?

    I wonder. There has never yet been a vaccine made for any Coronavirus (is my understanding), which includes the common cold (NeilS might have access to good info on that). So if a vaccine is invented...

    Yes but any borrowing by any person or entity is from/against the future. It's the very definition of borrowing. The opposite is to pay for stuff out of existing money, that is, spending the past.

    PJM, I'm not looking to have this thread politicised. It was a question about economics, not politics.
  44. Every country is borrowing money....who from???

    When you borrow money, it comes from someone else or a bank or whatever.

    At the moment, it seems that every country in the world is borrowing money to deal with the economic catastrophe brought on...
