    Biscuit tins

    Spent a little of the day pondering why the Americans use a double s when the English were happy to go with an r followed by an s.

    Doesn’t matter.

    Just got on with my brake lines.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    I took it to mean two different ways (US vs UK) to spell the alternative word for posterior....

    Is not the one without the 'r' singular, whereas with the 'r' plural, as in 'our' (word with 'r'). Biscuit tins

    Ginger Nuts

    While we are on the biscuit tin subject has anyone noted recently the thickness of ginger nuts?

    they are now about 2-3 thick and even a baby could bite them now.

    they used to be about 5mm thick and you wouldn't be game to try and bite one in half....

    .....not considering their previous dunkability at smoko , when you poured your hot tea out of your thermos that you took to work each day.

    the latest ginger nuts would go soggy as you dunked them and be lucky to get to your mouth.

    arnotts stopped making bikkies years ago when they changed the flaky SAO to whatever it is now.

    I hope they don't **** with Jatz after the latest takeover or I'm out.
