    (Posting from Ireland) We’ve got a 22c levy on plastic bags and it works fairly well you can buy a plastic bag or a more durable bag for about 1.50 or you can steal a cardboard box from the shop to hold your shopping in.

    You just don’t think about it until you travel outside the Republic and realise the shops are just giving you the bags. And it’s funny watching people come out of the supermarkets trying to juggle everything rather than pay an extra few pence.

    Brewster’s Millions with Richard Pryor was the sixth movie version of a book written at the turn of the last century. There were four versions of The Front Page between 1931 and 1988.

    Could be a reference to Mary Shelley. There’s been a campaign for years to get a reference to Frankenstein put on her gravestone but the church won’t allow it.

    No but you can’t send code to it’s room until it’s ready to behave.

    The worst and best things about e-readers; you can’t be nosey about what other people are reading and you can try and plough through a classic without people thing you’re being pretentious.
