Why a hotel in a 19th century building in Victoria is called "The Tudor Inn." 

18/12/2012 at 14:30

Maybe it was mocking the tudors?

18/12/2012 at 14:30

the victorians went through a mock tudor revival if thats any help?

It isn't mock Tudor though - if it was it would make sense. It looks like this:

I'm baffled as to why my computer is acting up today (it keeps saying shock-something has crashed) or something along those lines and tech support (my SIL!) has gone home for the day! Ugh!

I am totally baffled why people are stockpiling food etc. in preparation for the end of the world on Friday. If the world is going to end, that's it, no more world, no more people, no need for stocks of stuff, it'll all be gone. When it doesn't end,  loads of idiots will be wishing they hadn't spent so much money on things they don't need.

  

Good point!

Why someone just drove me with NO lights on, on an unlit country road when visibility is actually below 10m because the fog is so thick. And it's dark. Pitch black.

My money is on.....
1) He's a total tit
2) He's nicked it
3) Possibly both

What about yours?

I'm baffled as to why suddenly I cant transfer fata from my Garmin to my computer. It repeatedly tells me it's transferring data but it's lying to me.

Is the end of the world going to affect all Garmin products ?

Just why do Americans need household arsenals of assault weaponry? - I mean the 'well regulated militia' just isn't needed anymore, as us redcoats went home in 1815.

Screamapillar...maybe it the Killing of Georgian!

Why is it that I can explain things to some people at work yet I cannot understand it for them?

I have never seen so much defending of the utterly, utterly indefensible.

You can point out that the Founding Fathers had flintlock pistols and not assault weapons in mind, when they drew up the 2nd amendment; remind them that the constitution can be amended (and that the above is a clue); provide gun death statistics from other countries; try to explain that arming the teachers would not have been the answer; try to persuade them that even if they think they have a "tyrannical goverment" that needs to be deterred it has tanks, planes and a big f*cking army. Not one single argument holds up in the light of reasoning and they still demand the right to bear arms.

Basically Americans are just in love with guns. It's sickening.
