"But why are people going to pay a fortune for something that comes free from a tap?"
"That's the genius bit; we'll get someone to fart in it to make it fizzy &, get this, if people don't like fart water (and why would they?), we'll also make a still version that is literally just water as an alternative. People will hate the fart water so much they'll pay for bottled tap water."

People who a rabidly obsessed with the idea that Univsersity Education should be completely free.
Right, these sorts get on my nerves so much. First of all, being a student, I know that it's not financially easy, and not cheap, I'm not receiving any hand downs other than the standard amount of loans, and am mainly funding myself through Uni by using all the money I have saved up from two years of full time employment. It hacks me off a great deal when people insist they should be allowed to go to uni for free. I'm in no way saying those who not financially well off should be excluded, not at all. But I have a massive problem with people who seem to think they are entitled to receive an important service in exchange for nothing. University education is not compulsory, and Universities act as businesses, so why the hell should they not charge for entry? You don't walk into a shop and walk out with a load of stuff without paying, so why the hell should you be able to do this with a University? Furthermore, they harp on about how the money goes to the state. Open your eyes ffs, do you not realise that Government subsidies save UK nationals around £21k over the course of three years?! You just have to look at how much exchange students have to pay to see that you aren't getting a raw deal.
Or the $120k over four years I have to pay at a private school in the US....

Inspired by sledgee's TV Licence thread, council tax stinks. Aside from the whole debate about getting nothing for it, I'm gonna parochially moan about the discount. When I lived with my ex-missus, or 'partner' as the state like to call it, we paid something like £90 a month (admittedly not the worst rate in the world, but still). Now I live in the same house on my own, I get a 25% discount. Can anyone provide me with a good reason why single people shouldn't get a 50% discount? I've asked plenty of people but nobody seems to know. In effect, when she moved out my council tax bill actually went up 25% because there was suddenly only one income contributing to it, bah it's a disgrace
