I'm not sure on the official freezer arrangements- He wasn't using the freezer closest to him, but whether people are required to use specific freezers or not is something I'm unsure of. However, given that it was 30 degrees (In non-hillbilly), meant that A) Weird things had to happen- the freezers were unable to cope properly, so there's a possibility he was trying to use a less occupied freezer, and B) Either way, you're supposed to tell someone. That's basic sportsmanship, especially given the weather conditions. Turns out it was only left out for 40 seconds, and that was enough to completely melt it.

But again, it's about sportsmanship. Even if he did the wrong thing, taking it out of the freezer and not saying it was completely the wrong decision- even if someone breaks a minor rule, you don't leave them high and dry. And while yes, he was the one to throw it in the bin, in most other areas of cooking, if something you've cooked isn't completely fucked, you start again. Yes, he could've shown merangue and cake- but it's a baked alaska for crying out loud! You lose the ice cream, you expect the whole bloody thing to be pointless! And again, he was shaping up to be rather solid. Not a leading contender for the final (There are two almost definites, but I think mistakes and simple aptitude for the week's theme will decide, if not the final but the semi/quarter finals), whereas another competitor was very lucky to have stayed on for two weeks previously. Should've nullified the round, or simply had no-one leave.

(One must blame the editors for part of the controversy- They suggested it was left out for longer, and didn't even show the judges addressing that it had been left out by somebody else. Even if it was a bad move, it was shown up to be even worse, which is unfair. It's meant to be a baking contest followed by (mostly) Middle class brits. We don't need your American overblowing of controversy, and we don't want to be manipulated.)

(P.S. Don't wanna be that guy, but you can bet your ass some of those "So mean!" Americans would be cheering the US Embassy posting pictures celebrating independence and kicking the brits out, and saying that apologising it would be weakness. I'd like the time to say "I support the burning cake!")

Orb of Venom

Here is a conundrum for yon stewards of the English language as upheld by the tenants of monarchy and globe-spanning empire:

In the apostate colonies now styling themselves United States, the 'first floor' of a building refers to that level which in the motherland is called the 'ground floor' and commonly the 'second floor' refers to that known in Britannia as the 'first.' But consider a structure built upon a hill in such manner as to allow ground access to not a single story but rather two. Mayhaps even three. What wouldst thou label the ground floor thence, prithee? What wouldst thou call the first?

The bottom floor you can access directly from the street level is the ground floor, as I understand it. That means you can have an above-ground basement.

Okay, but what if both are accessible from seperate street levels?

In Holland, we have a lot of dykes, which were historically used to block the watery wetness that is our nation. Atop many of these dykes are roads. With the invention of the polder process (walling in a watery area and pumping it dry with windmills), many of these dykes lost their purpose as a water-stopper, but remained important thoroughfares. Houses were built on their sides, with two entrances; one for the street on the dyke, one for the street in the polder. Because dykes are elevated, the dyke entrance is on a higher floor.

isn't dyke a derogatory name for a lesbian?

One of those floors must be lower than the other.

I don't think building safety laws permit things like that.

The primary access would be considered the ground or first floor with those below basements or sublevels even if said structure was embedded into a hillside.

Yep, The floor into which you can walk in from the street is the ground floor.

Ten questions about what if Scotland votes "Yes"

1) Would the Queen remain Queen of Scotland?
2) Will Mr. Cameron and Mr. Miliband have to resign?
3) Would Scotland be in the EU — and what about NATO?
4) What would Scotland’s currency be?
5) Would there be a new Hadrian’s Wall–style border?
6) What about the Royal Naval submarine base at Faslane?
7) Can Scotland survive on North Sea oil revenues?
8) Would England lose its place on the U.N. Security Council?
9) What would happen to Britain’s national debt and national assets?
10) Might there be a dividend for English taxpayers?

Interested in what those across the pond think of those answers...

Did find the first answer to be interesting if Scotland decided to go with a monarchy.

Our sovereign, Her Majesty, and her lineage: they shall always rule the land! That was always the plan, you know. She's more Scottish than English. She comes from the line of the Kings and Queens of Scots (thank the Virgin Queen for that), and her mother was a proper Scots lady (Queen Mother's father was the 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne). She quite likes Balmoral, as well.

Scotland would be in the EU. That's a near certainty. Nato is more iffy, as Scotland may choose to go the route of Austria (i.e. theoretical neutrality).

If one good thing could come out of a "yes" vote, it would be that the Right Honourable Mr Cameron would surely be toast. His party is named "Conservative and Unionist", after all, and being the fellow to lose the "Union" seems a bit a contradictory.

The currency would be the Pound Sterling, though perhaps not in a currency union (dollarisation rather than sterling zone).

I can't imagine land border controls being implemented, and I'm a total unionist. That's all Darling's little bit of nonsense. There is absolutely no reason why Scotland would not be included in the Common Travel Area (with Ireland). If Ireland was granted this luxury, so too would Scotland. It would be better for those English who live close to Scotland, as well.

HMNB Clyde would close. What is there to wonder about that?

Scotland cannot survive on oil revenues, but it would not have to. It has a well-developed goods and services economy. Anyway, I quite dislike the oil business. Whenever I take the train from Edinburgh up to my Uncle's house in Stonehaven, there are always a bunch of oilers heading to Aberdeen. They're quite annoying folk. Very gruff. Lots of incomprehensible Scousers, too. I do enjoy listening to them, though, for their stories are quite colloquial and somewhat reminiscent of manhood prior.

"England" doesn't have a place on the Security Council, Britain does. Regardless, it is quite clear that the rump United Kingdom of England and Northern Ireland would be considered the successor state to Britain, and would retain the seat (USSR-Russia or RoC-PRC transition-style).

Debt? Who knows...

I don't think England will gain anything. In theory, it would allow greater representation for the North of England, but I wouldn't hedge my bets on that one. Instead, England will be stuck under the Conservative yoke without Scottish votes. There will be no progress whatsoever, only decline. Rump UK would lose influence. China state media said that the rump UK would be a "second rate" country. I don't disagree. Scotland would be even worse off than the rump UK, but that's another story.

Edit. Whilst digging up that Chinese nonsense, I noticed one of the comments on the story. Praise God, I love to read the talk of morons!

Quote:
The Chinese people do not need or desire the chaotic western systems. Your so called "liberal democracies" are envied by no true Chinese.

The CCP is the truest defender of China's sacred and inviolate sovereign territorial integrity. History has shown the CCP system to be the proven system, which alone, can and Already Has transformed China from a backwards agrarian semi-feudal country into a world power !

You had best figure out what the heck you're supposed to be doing vis-à-vis Scotland.

I don't want to have to put up with the chatter that'd come from Quebec if the Yes vote won.

It is very sad, actually, since I'm thinking of taking a job back home next year. I'm really not interested in living in a kitschy shortbread, tartan, tea and tatties balkanised state, despite quite liking the place on the whole.

What he said.

I'm sick to the fucking back teeth of this topic. The Scots do better out of the UK than anyone else, if they really want to throw that away for some pathetic, childish Braveheart fantasy, then good-fucking-luck and good-fucking-riddance.

Also, holy shit, the SNP are even more retarded than I thought.
