    The theory that war is good for an economy is often repeated but is not really based in fact. Obviously some people make a profit, but overall, as someone (I forget who) once said, it is the same as taking the entire year's output of Ford and General Motors, smashing it up and burying it in a field. War bankrupts even the strongest economies.

    Almost impossible to open (when you're all wet and slippery) shampoo and shower gel bottles.

    Totally agree, I think I also mentioned these some time ago for being designed to topple over at the slightest touch (after which it was helpfully suggested that I shouldn't keep them on a shelf - so no need to repeat that particular advice)

    Not long ago a large bottle of shampoo fell on my big toe while my eyes were shut in the shower, a most unpleasant surprise! And my toe was swollen and purple for a week!

    TV ads are bad enough but when they're clearly foreign ads dubbed into english that's just taking the piss, they couldn't even be bothered to make a dedicated UK ad!

    They can be unintentionally funny, though. Who can forget 'The Ambassador's Reception?'

    I don't remember it, so I must have forgotten it.

    Ditto! A linky to such, perhaps on YouTube, would be informative
