Everything washes fine in my dishwasher, no complaints except for two things, plates, cutlery etc all dry to a perfect shine but plastic things like tuperwear are always still soaked, why do they not dry??
Also I make an omelette every now and again, egg never comes off, it always dries on like glue, why does it not wash off??


Glass and ceramics store heat and this causes the water to evaporate once the wash cycle has finished. Plastic doesn't store heat so the water cools and remains as droplets on your tupperwear.

Because it's more work to disconnect it?

David Attenborough just said "millipedes can't see red"
How does he know that?

Because he did everything he could to torment it, wind it up, and make it lose it's temper, but it stayed nice and calm.

When you use a tumble dryer, it will collect a lot of fluff.

Where is this fluff if you don't use a tumble dryer?

Just another way of testing your faith, DL. Questioning His divinity and His claim to 10% of your gross income means you won't get into heaven, so beware.

Same. Non vegatarians who choose to eat tasteless **** like tofu are the worst

There's way too many people out there being way too healthy just for the sake of it. Most of them don't need it for their job, out of work life ect. Live a little. The likes of cancer and road accidents can hit anyone at any time regardless of diets and fitness. I'm not saying everyone should be fat slobs but it's easy to get in reasonable shape while enjoying food and having a drink or 6 a couple nights a week

Please listen to the initial intro to The Hollies' Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)

The first13-14 seconds. It sounds like another guitar solo from the 60s or 70s, I think. It may have actually been an instrumental song (think it probably was).

Can someone help jog my memory as it's doing my nut in and I really want to listen to it....
