It is and I agree, I'd do the same. PE for the day flight, business for the night flight. It's ****ing out of order for them to quibble about this stuff.

Seconded. Give me a good regular bread roll any day for a burger. The Brioche bun is just wrong.

Because they are delicious, that's why.

I got told two pretty hideous horsefly 'facts' by a medic, recently:

1. The horsefly, unlike the mosquito, for instance, has a more jagged 'bite', meaning that the consequence is always a larger bitemark, but, perhaps more grisly

2. The horsefly has proteins in its saliva that are much more different from the proteins hosted in the saliva of most other biting insects. This is why they seem to itch so much more. The protein is so alien to our general systems that it takes our bodies a lot longer to break it all down and have away with it.

Conclusion: horseflies are from hell, if not from outer space.

Kill them! Kill them with fire!

I agree, there is a time and a place for a delicious brioche, ideally Sunday morning lightly toasted with butter and/or jam of choice (apricot if I'm being continental, otherwise raspberry, strawberry or blackcurrant)

NOT other side of a medium-cooked juicy burger, tomato, onions, lettuce and mustard combo.

I'm with Dover on this one!

It all depends on the quality of the bun regardless of whether it is brioche or not.

Caterpillars have eaten half my plants in the garden as well , proper ruined a couple of topiary bushes


Have you seen the caterpillars on the bushes you do the topiary with ? If, as is most common, they are box , or similar, and especially,though not exclusively, if they are containerised, the most common pest to cause that kind of damage is vine weevil. These can decimate shrubs, especially compact/containers stuff.....fairly easy to treat inorganically by watering insecticide around the roots ( eggs laid in soil), with luck the shrub will survive and outgrow any damage.

It's the only foolproof way to distinguish between a 'gourmet' burger and a slab of grilled minced beef in a roll. Except that McDonalds now sell burgers in brioche, which renders that argument redundant.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arguing in public about who owes what in maintenance for their children.

Honestly, it makes my mind boggle.

Newspapers printing pictures from social media posts made by celebrities and presenting it as news.

Front page of the Metro today - pictures of David Beckham on holiday with his kids.
