I know, I know… I’m, like, a million years behind with this but I remember thinking at the time what a smug, self satisfied farewell it was. Gleefully, you tatty old turd of a rag, I bid you a fond piss off
I wish for an app/website that would monitor my home’s energy and water usage and show me local alternative energy options.

Looking at how to communicate Metric time.
Too many sites to use, how do I decide between whether I would use twitter or tumblr, perhaps for longer posts? But I have my own blog for these things, http://oliverbothwell.co.uk/thoughts. Hmm.
Some time last year, a few American schools and colleges, worried about obesity in students, tried a blindingly simple experiment: they took away the canteen trays. It was a simple thing, but the effects were impressive. Because they couldn’t take more back to their seats than they could easily balance on an arm, students couldn’t make impulse purchases of muffins, extra large sodas or appetising kilogram blocks of refined animal fat. They could carry one plate and maybe a small drink to their table and, once they’d consumed that, they faced an active 10m trek back up to the counter for dessert of high fructose corn syrup in a deep fried pastry bucket.
It’s brilliant. Can you imagine the intellectual torture? “I really want to gratify myself by sucking up more ghastly pap but how do counterbalance that desire with my abject terror of actually getting off my grotesquely fat arse and going to get it?” They say the students lost pounds because they ate less - I reckon they burned up the calories just thinking that hard.
Nothing special. [http://www.ironicsans.com/helvarialquiz/]
Urgh, woke up too late. I feel so tired at the moment. I’ll blame the cold weather.
I am quite enjoying using tumblr.
