Interesting Fact

Buying a cadbury's flake, forgetting about it, and having it crumble up in you pocket for a few days (thankfully not escaping its packaging) will leave it tasting strangely of turkish delight.

Either that or it's combining in some way with the coffee I'm drinking.

Anyway, neither that interesting, nor necessarily that factual, but, as can be seen by Wayne Rooney's wedding topping the news billing there is bugger all happening in the world.

It all depends where you for your news doesn't it...

Headlines on the Today programme this morning were the fact that a government employee left top secret documents about the "War on Terror" lying around on a train and looking at the aftermath of yesterday's disgraceful vote on 42-day detention.

Not entirely connected to the issue, but worst story-about-putting-food-in-your-pocket I have: I once put a McDonald's milkshake in my coat pocket while I got on the bus. Once I got upstairs, it had somehow turned itself upside-down, and covered my phone, wallet and keys, not to mention the inside of my coat pocket, in delicious sugary mulch.

Also when, I think the news report I was refering to was Tuesday evening. But you're right, the BBC in particular seems quite rubbish, I partiucalarly hate the way they basically advertise their programming (Apprentice, the dancing thing, that crappy musical thing) as if the events on them were news.

The real question is why you would put a McDonalds milkshake in you coat pocket with all those things. That's surely like thinking we'll put lots of secret information in folders and cds, but then send them by train or standard post, you're just asking for it.

Because, to stick with your analogy, I thought it was more secure than it apparently was. Though it's not a mistake I've made since.

Really, in order to be truly analogous, I'd have to have been trusted to carry lots of people's phones/wallets in my pocket when it happened.
