Britain Leaving the EU - For and Against

A NOTE OF APOLOGY: Several days ago I uploaded a version of this video which somewhat implied (courtesy of Talisker whisky, and being a general idiot) that Southern Ireland (the Republic of Ireland, if you prefer) is part of the UK. I've fixed it up since then, but the patriotic damage is done. Massive apologies to the Irish among you who saw that at the time. You probably felt how I would if someone tried to make out Stephen Fry is Australian. It was quite embarrassing, and to make up for it I'd gladly buy you all a pint. One...

It’s totally possible to be secular and still consider it just as valuable. Which it is. There’s also no reason to associate it with claims about superpowers, enlightenment, seeing other dimensions, or suddenly being able to do triple backflips with a jam sandwich on your head. The last one would be cool though. As mentioned in the video,...

With its long and pointed nose, it can reach top speeds up to 150–200 miles per hour. It didn’t always look like this. Earlier models were rounder and louder, often suffering from the phenomenon of "tunnel boom," where deafening compressed air would rush out of a tunnel after a train rushed in.
