I wonder if the Queen has ever had a McDonald's.

Did Harry or William ever get a happy meal as kids?

What's the point of Christmas lights?

I mean I enjoy them but they serve no purpose at all apart from pointlessly lighting up the front of someone's house.

I mean I enjoy them but they serve no purpose at all apart from pointlessly lighting up the front of someone's house.

 

And they can be distressing too, like to some people on this side of the pond:  

 

I don’t mean to be a grinch however.. to those of you who are placing Christmas lights/decorations in your yards, would you please avoid anything that has Red or Blue flashing lights together? Every time I come around the corner, I think it's the police and I have a panic attack. I have to brake hard, toss my beer out the window, fasten my seat belt, throw my phone on the floor, turn my radio down, and push the gun under the seat. All while trying to drive. It's just too much drama, even for Christmas. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

White ones that slowly flash are the ones that annoy me. On more than one occasion I think I have been nicked by a speed camera and all it was, was a set of Christmas lights coming on and then going off.

 

Surely the solutions would simply be, no flashing lights. Ones that stay on fine, but not flashing ones.

Amuses me that every time there's an article on the news they have to warn you about flashing lights. Are Xmas decs somehow different?!

Christmas gives me the shirts, but really guys, if you don't like the lights just don't look at them already

I made my own lights this year. Coloured E14 bulbs, no flashing.

Looks beautifully old fashioned. Will up load a picture later.

20 normal bulbs over 14m. The picture doesnt really do it justice, they look even better in the flesh.

Anyone else reckon that Elon Musk is one industrial accident away from becoming a supervillian?

If you woke up in someone else's body, what would you do to prove you are you and not the person you look like?
