    They don't all have beards and wear hats. You must've saw Malcolm Rifkind?
    Exactly. I was at school with at least one jew. You wouldn't have known it if she hadn't spoken about it. She also took part in all the Christmas & Easter stuff that went on in schools.

    You cannot have an idea of something you gave no knowledge of, Columbus wasn't looking for America, he was searching for another route to India, hence the reason the West Indies as named as such. Scientist search for the Higgs Bosun and black holes because theoretically they should exist, they didn't search for these things not knowing what they were looking for. At the time of Columbus they had no knowledge of the size of the earth, Columbus and others at that time didn't go looking for America, they discovered it by accident.
    But people had ideas about other lands long before Columbus found those lands. Lands such as those existed at that time despite the lack of conclusive proof.

    When a scientific theory first emerges, there are often plenty of people, scientists included, who do not agree with that theory. I would imagine one of the reasons for that lack of belief would be the lack of conclusive proof. Some theories prove to be correct, some do not. For those that are proven to be incorrect, there is conclusive proof of that. However, in the absence of conclusive proof, it is not possible to say with certainty that something is wrong/does not exist etc.

    You possibly did but not realised. They don't all wear "badges".

    They had no idea the world was as big as it was, they knew of Asia, India and Africa as they travelled by land, Marco Polo being one example in the far east. They knew India had a vast ocean to it's east and they knew there was a vast ocean to the West. Columbus's theory was if he travelled far enough West he should land on the East coast of India. They had no idea the Americas existed until they landed there, you cannot search for something you know nothing about. Columbus didn't go to the Queen and say, give me money for some ships, I'm off to discover America, he was trying to find another way to India without going right round Africa or over land. You have to know what you're looking for before you look.

    I read there are less than 300,000 Jewish people in the UK. I would have thought a lot more given the amount of discussion there is around the matter of anti-semitism etc. They also have their own police force. Does anyone know if this unique for such a small portion of the overall population?
    I don't think they do have their own police force. They have a well-organised and well-established neighbourhood watch/citizen patrol group that is similar to the Guardian Angels, which gained fame in the US in the 1980s but they have no powers other than that of making a citizen's arrest, same as any citizen. It's simply that they have organised themselves in numbers.

    People "really really" into works nights out/events.

    I realise I'm probably the odd one out rather than the rest, but for me I go to work for 8 hours and leave at 5 on the dot to enjoy actual life.

    Don't get me wrong, I get on with my colleagues and don't mind a drink with them every now and again, but we've just had a work event and for some it seemed to be the highlight of their life.


    I'll add another entry,people "extremely" passionate about the company they work for.

    Now, I fully understand it if the company is doing some life changing work and changing lives, however the North Korean esque levels of worship you get from some people for bog standard companies that wouldn't wait half a second to screw you over is something I'll never get.

    Women wearing footwear they can't walk in.

    I know the whole 'heels' thing has been around forever but this past couple of weeks in particular I've noticed women holding me up from getting down the stairs at work due to them physically not being able to walk in a normal motion because of the shoes or boots they have on.

    Im guilty of being a people watcher and spend a lot of time waiting for buses in the town. Ive laughed more than once watching women struggle in their shoes. I can almost feel their pain sometimes. Fair entertains me . (I live in trainers and if needs must i wear wedges.)

    Unfortunately a fashion thing, been going on for decades, I love watching them all tottering along George St, looking beautiful until they attempt to walk along to the next pub, then they're like baby giraffes trying their first steps.
