    Yeah, strikes me as bureaucracy for the sake of it tbh. Just another database on which a great deal of personal information of a large number of individuals is stored though, hate this sort of thing, needs to be binned.

    Not really. You can likely determine if it's a problem in certain ares more than others, and if it is, what socio-economic determinants (if any) are causing it, apart from the kid being a fat ****er.

    Then you might be able to do something about it I suppose.

    I'm just wondering about deferring it for a year - I'll still be young enough (26), and will be able to enjoy what I have here for a bit longer. Also, I'm hoping to play some cricket over there, and if I don't leave here until mid-May then by the time I've found a job I could have missed half the cricket season anyway. Have talked to a couple of friends over there who work in my area, and they reckon the jobs are there but it moves slowly and will likely take a month or two to find something.

    Really agonising over it - each time I think I've decided I suddenly change my mind.

    I'm thinking this ex-Taliban fighter looks thrilled to have changed sides and at being recruited to the Afghan army.

    I was thinking on the train - that sometimes I see well known actors smirk at lesser known actors when they are on the screen together and the latter of the two does some average acting.
    Sometimes just by watching the body language if you get two well known actors together they seem to size each other up in some scenes rather than just concentrating on their acting. Either this or I am reading too much into their body language.

    Only this judge could deliver two hour reasons over a $30k assault case.

    Old guy at the table next to me at lunch looked like Henry Kissinger. Weirded me out.

    Facebook's impact on productivity in the workplace, so perhaps not as ridiculous as I made it sound.

    Just got an email from a company based in Dorset that was pretty positive. What's Dorset like, Englanders? I see it's on the south coast, so gets bonus points for being a bit warmer anyway.

    It's nice, but very quiet. If you're an urban/city/big town kind of guy you'll probably find it incredibly mundane.
