In Topic: Writing Emails Whilst Very Enraged/sleepy..is It A Good Idea?

19 December 2014 - 04:23 PM

Seeing as the majority of emails I write are done at my work I usually only send something if it is pleasant because any complaints as a result would have a negative impact on my position.


On a personal level I don't actually notice a significant difference in my responces to emails when tired/irritated however I do of course become more officious and point out issues that I would have ignored previously.

In Topic: Tax Disc No More

30 September 2014 - 08:42 PM

Well, looks like I will be removing the tax disc and holder from the Focus tomorrow.  It'll be strange not seeing it in the corner of the windscreen anymore, but I'm not sure I'll exactly "miss" it.


Then again, I'm not nicknamed "the procrastinator" for nothing, so therefore the disc (which expires on the 31st of January 2015) will probably remain there at least until it expires - regardless of whether or not it is required.

I thought the result isn't announced til the morning, around 7am I think I read?

That is correct.  The coverage from 10:40 to 06:00 on STV will give the results for individual constituencies however.

If it is a no... can another referendum happen again?

It can, and to my knowledge there would be nothing to legally stop it, however it is unlikely it would happen again in "our generation". 


Don't get me wrong, I am a Yes voter (voted this morning in fact), but if we lose tomorrow then there would be no point in another referendum in the next few years as the result wouldn't change, in fact it would probably go further towards the No side.


There will be live coverage on the BBC and STV (I will be watching the latter) through the wee small hours if anybody wishes to watch it.

Bye bye tax disc
Bye bye fast hairdryers
And superhoovers ahah wat a planet

With regards to limiting the wattage on Vacuum Cleaners and people's negative opinions about that, I suggest you read this thread on the subject.


In terms of losing the tax disc, I won't be shedding any tears over it!!  I have a feeling though that it may make a lot of (stupid) people think they can get away without taxing their vehicle because it isn't visible.
