    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    That looks exactly like one I had come in this week- I really studied it and did several tests, and I'm convinced it's copper-plated.

    I'm enjoying imagining what the accompanying cartoon in Private Eye would look like......

    Just told him it's a fake.....
  4. The Magna Carta is viewed in the US as absolutely astonishing - something a lot of people over here don't realise....... If were all pedantic in a serious way, normal life would stop. Are 'carbon spots' really carbon? !!!!
  5. I didn't think we HAD a constitution, but I agree- 52:48 result was an instant problem. Oh- as far as I remember, 'referendum' isn't neuter second declension, but a gerund, 'The asking' which has no plural ending, so 'referendums' is likely ( jury is still slightly out) to be the correct plural English form. Long time ago. ( Latin and my learning of it. Another gerund there,....( I think)....)
  6. The ONLY reason I voted for Brexit ( I work all over Europe, so leaving badly could screw me up) was so that the morons at large in 'Government' would screw up or be so blindingly self-serving that people would finally see them for what they are. . Churchill, Attlee, Thatcher -all were there when needed. Who is it this time?
  7. This Yuletide, thou art truly an all-round family entertainer.
  8. Just had my Microsoft Advent calendar arrive. I'm not going to open windows 8 or 10......
  9. 'abbreviation' is even longer......:)

    The amount of corrosion is interesting- maybe more galvanic than usual because of the steel box?

    That was lucky

    Yes- 'VOTE' not 'VOTES'....hilarious.

    That was lucky

    Yes...and don't get me started on the 'VOTES FOR WOMEN' stamps... I have actually seen someone trying to sell an 'original' 'VOTE FOR WOMEN' penny that he'd clearly made last week.....what a knob.....!
