What you propose is a BSC, which is entirely different.

I went to Subway and ordered a sandwich and came out with a degree!

Or

Those corporations really are making the job market overqualified for everything. You can get degrees in sandwich shops now.

I, too, have years of experience with topping subs.

So I had a workplace accident in the middle of April. I had medical leave until half of May. Afterward, I gave medical documentation to my boss, as requested.

Today, I got a request from the wages office to give them the documentation. So I had to go to the boss, get the documentation coppied, and deliver one of the copies.
I kept one copy this time, so that if anyone else needs it, I still have it.

I am mostly surprised they waited until today to request it, rather than end of May.
Nefarious answer: Your workplace's policies are designed to fuck with you, since many bosses would have lost your medical documentation by now.
Realistic answer: It was probably sitting on the desk of someone at the wage office since May, and they just now got to looking at it.

Looks like what brings down Boris Johnson is not two standards advisors quitting because they wonít take his advice, itís not his inability to answer how he funded the renovation of his flat for months, itís not graft, corruption, ministers bullying their staff to the point they quit and sue the government, nor is it when he gets fined for being incapable of following the rules he and his government came up with for Covid.

Nah, he appointed a sex pest as deputy chief whip, and a week after he groped two men (a week later!) two of his ministers quit, one of whom was also fined for attending a party during Covid lockdowns.

The other one even has the cheek to say the public expect the government to be run sensibly, despite all of the above happening over the last couple of years and more that I canít recall off the top of my head.

Elections happening now would be very fucking interesting given the Scottish First Minister has said that, if they canít have another legal independence referendum next year, theyíd campaign the next UK election on the single issue of independence and consider it a de facto referendum.

Edit: I tell a lie. The guy who got fined said the public should expect the government to be conducted properly. One might suggest following the rules you put in place woukd be a good start, but what do I know.

Edit 2: thereís also the small matter of the leader of the opposition and their deputy being investigated for breaching Covid times too, and has said heíd resign if found to have breached them, not sure if thatís been sorted yet.

The fact that the groping MP is named "Pincher", as well... I don't really know what to say about that.

Very hard. Where there's a will, there's a way, though.

From photos of the scene, it was almost certainly a homemade double-barrel shotgun. Just some pipes, a couple of big ass capacitors, and a handle.

There are also other photos of homemade guns recovered from the home of the suspect (perpetrator?).

I get all the other stuff but what are the compactors for?

Electrical discharge ignition of the primer cap.

Reduces the mechanical complexity of the zipgun

Probably had no cap at all. From the sound and the smoke, it was using black powder. Get your BP fine enough, and make a big enough spark, and that's enough to do the job.

Sounds very futuristic needing electricity to fire your musket.


Guess zipguns become more complex when you don't have premade bullets to fire.

Rumor has it he was ex-JDF. He may have had bullets, actually. Far easier to sneak off a bullet than a rifle.
