Duracell alkaline batteries! When they get to the end of their life they leak big time. They have almost destroyed very valuable items when I've forgotten where I installed them. I'm sick of them. Never had a leakage problem with similar freebee single use batteries from Panasonic or Toshiba, just Duracell.

Some years ago I ditched single use AA/AAA batteries and went the rechargeable route. Now replacing those with Panasonic Eneloop Pro rechargeable's and they're excellent (y)

There was a time when Duracell promised to pay for anything their leakage damaged.
Not Anymore.

I have some business cards that I keep in my car to hand out to those parking like C's ... they reference this website.

Looking out of my lounge window over the last week and the amount of blokes walking past wearing a thick top coat, cos it's flippin' cold, and ruddy shorts! Are these people mad? Even women have more sense and wear trews in this weather!

There's a guy at our local who wears a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops pretty much all year round. But his insulation is self-contained, if you catch my drift!

Have come to expect permanent shorts on postmen.
But I've been surprised at the amount of blokes walking round Tesco in T shirts and shorts....when I'm just about comfortable in layers + a coat.

From far away, don´t understand some english people and their "hate" for Gary Lineker (assuming you´re english).
Because he's a greatly overpaid and overrated football pundit who happens to work for an unbiased television network. He should keep his biased and small-minded political opinions to himself, he gets paid over £1million a year to comment on football, nothing else. There is a growing general dislike for this opinionated idiot in the UK.

See the previous post for your answer.
If you were English you might understand....especially if your licence fee contributed to his salary.

It's do-gooders like him that are ruining Britain.

He is the highest paid 'talent' at the BBC and plenty of us wish they'd sack him for his tweets.

Sorry for jumping in Gray, I think we share a common dislike for this so called 'talent'.
