Tube seats

If you're lucky enough to get a seat on the underground, the problems only just begin.
There's signs and posters encouraging 'seat holders' to offer their seats to pregnant women, the disabled and elderly people.

The first problem with this theory is deciding who is eligible for the 'disabled, elderly & pregnant' category.
What's the tipping point between being kind and rude?
How do you know what age is appropriate?
You might offend a old looking 50 year old...
Or even worse, mistake a fat woman for being pregnant.
Where are the guidelines?
If someone has one arm, does this make them more worthy of your seat?

I'd rather avoid these situations by standing.
If you do end up sitting the best technique is to keep your eyes down. Never look up, then you can't get it wrong. Even better, make sure you pick up the Evening Standard - then you're clearly to engrossed in your newspaper to notice the frail 80 year old collapsing directly in front of you.
Problem sorted!

Lovely LITTLE insight

Just found this. Brilliant.

It's not that clear but it's for VW, the other logo is Porsche.

The Lottery

There are 2 things you think when you turn 16:

1) I can legally have sex
2) I can buy a lottery ticket

I do the lottery online ever week like millions of people in desperate hopes of winning the jackpot. But then again i'd be happy with just mere £10,000. I'm not greedy.
In the 4 months i've been playing it i've won a grand total of (drum roll please...) £20.

So fair enough people win, people lose but the other day i read a story about a couple winning the jackpot not just once, but TWICE! Why would you still need to play the lottery after winning? This is just unfair.
And if you think that's bad, someone in the US has won five times!

I'd like to propose a new rule to the national lottery, previous winners can only win the jackpot once and then should leave the lottery to the poorer people and get on with their rich, enjoyable lives.
