Not a lot, few kilo max and can easily be handballed.

The brain is a wonderful thing
I got laser eye surgery done but in one eye only
Took a bit of getting used to but now dont even notice it
Left eye for close up stuff, right for distance, the brain just auto adjusts and objects close and far appear clear in both eyes

No, it clearly states in the bible that Jesus returned in Triumph to Jerusalem.

Why are affluent areas of the country either very liberal or converative. Two very different ends of the political spectrum. One example of a liberal city is Cambridge, some might say it's the massive student population but I've found most working quite well off people in the city to be very liberal, in other parts of the country these would be tories.

The 'college town' effect maybe? I think a lot of it comes down to how you view money. Some people are simply happy to have plenty of it and others use it as their mechanism of keeping score and want ever-increasing amounts of it. The former type of people tend to be fairly liberal and want to live near other liberals while the others like big houses, German cars and want to live in places where they can have regular cock-measuring contests.

I noticed some months ago in my local (Harrow) Asda they were selling the Newham Recorder but no other regional London papers. I thought they must have had the wrong delivery but they sell it every week. What's that all about?

The liberal chap was ousted by labour at the last general election and not unusual for the city to return a labour candidate. Nothing to do with students though. However the more affluent areas south cambs etc will normally return a tory.

Depends if that affluence is earned or inherited. Old money can be quite Liberal as a throwback to noblesse oblige while new money tends to be very Conservative.
