    Rate the last film you watched...

    Free Guy - 7/10. It's entertaining enough if you like Ryan Reynolds being Ryan Reynolds. The idea is just a mish mash of Tron, Ready Player One, The Trueman Show, and Groundhog Day. That said, there are some very funny moments and the romantic part is well done. Oh, and Jodie Cromer, so it gets an extra point.

    Joke!

    I asked my wife if I was the only one she had ever been with. She said yes, the others were nines and tens.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Mrs Mars was working with an ex-hgv driver at the Ipswich Corn Exchange today. He said he was earning more an hour doing this. He also said that drivers from eastern Europe had depressed wages for British drivers; complaining was pointless as they could be quickly replaced with an eastern European driver.

    Top Ten Conspiracy Theories

    That makes sense apart from the "hardly any toothpaste is ingested" - makes mental note to start rinsing mouth properly. Of more concern is the volume of coffee I drink, which I have learnt can provide ten times as much fluoride as I get from brushing my teeth. Then again, even adding fluoridated water to this still leaves me well short of the tolerable daily intake so I think there are more pressing dietary concerns I should worry about.

    Top Ten Conspiracy Theories

    What I don't understand is the concentration of fluoride in drinking water is 0.7 ppm but in toothpaste it is up to 1500 ppm, so if I swallow a little bit of toothpaste won't I be getting a far more significant dose of fluoride? Is there a chemist who can explain this (I'm guessing it is what the fluorine is bonded to but I don't know)?

    Top Ten Conspiracy Theories

    Ethanoic acid can be very unpleasant but we don't tend to be scared of it in the concentration we typically use. Is it the method of fluoridating water that some people have a problem with rather than the actual fluoridation (we have had community water fluoridation in the UK since 1964 and at present 5.8 million people have fluoridated tap water)?

  10. For a Few Dollars More - I prefer this to the other spaghetti westerns. Having looked through his films now, am I right in remembering that Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was decent?

    Untrue trivia

    When untrue trivia isn't accurate, and research suggests as mush as 15% might not be, someone with a level head needs to step in and address the issue.
