A bucket of hot water will freeze before a bucket of cold water

Probably not what you'd expect.

I knew that from when I did physics at school. I thought everyone did?

Shame on you Matilda, scholar didn't have the benefit of a proper university education like wot you did. waggyfinger

You should be jolly well ashamed of yourself, that's what I say. teacher_mode

We did that one too !


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 21:30

I meant school, not uni. wb btw


giron - 23-5-2013 at 21:36

Yes, I realise that, but you had to work jolly hard at school in order to get into university, didn't you ?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 21:46

But at least it led to the big bucks I now earn hahahahaha


giron - 23-5-2013 at 21:53

Yes indeed, plus the exceedingly generous pension you'll get when you retire.
You certainly won't need to rely on charitable handouts in order to survive.

A good education set's you up for life, that's what I say, what say you ?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:00

I'm looking forward to this gold plated pension everyone tells me I'm going to get.


giron - 23-5-2013 at 22:04

Not only that, when you retire you'll have plenty of time to do scientific research which may or may not involve putting buckets of water in your freezer.


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:07

I'd have to be really bored to repeat that experiment. My favourite experiment was one we did in first year where the challenge was to make a rainbow on the ceiling. I might recreate that one because it was glittery hahaha


giron - 23-5-2013 at 22:14

Perhaps nobody has bothered to repeat the experiment, which could mean that there's no independent scientific proof that it's true ?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:19

Maybe hell freezes over so that it boils quicker.


giron - 23-5-2013 at 22:21

I wonder what the bible says about that ?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:25

Perhaps scholar could enlighten us.


giron - 23-5-2013 at 22:28

Never mind about that, have you ever witnessed that experiment and if so what size buckets were used ?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:35

I've been to hell and back, but only metaphorically.


giron - 23-5-2013 at 22:40

I'm sure you have, but I bet you've never worked in a soup recycling factory for minimal wages.


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 22:53

I've done all sorts of jobs but I've never worked in a factory.


victor - 24-5-2013 at 06:56

You've never lived if you haven't worked in a factory.
I worked in nearly every factory in Coventry during the sixties and the characters I met set me up for life.


John_Little - 24-5-2013 at 09:26

I did six weeks in Pearce Duff's Warehouse in Bermondsey during the school holidays.


LSemmens - 24-5-2013 at 09:31

So, what you are saying, Victor, is that you are doing Life? Which prison?;)nananana

We did it in school - but with 1ltr plastic ice-cream boxes - it still worked though !

I wish I could get so much work. I'm holding tight to my food plant job because I expect younger people have an advantage over us older folk in getting factory work.


John_Little - 24-5-2013 at 18:10

Don't you believe it. Not over here. They have decided to make us work and die on the job .


marymary100 - 24-5-2013 at 18:16

And that derelict building over there will soon be the poorhouse!

I was fortunate enough to be employed all my working life and never regretted a minute of it ,as I was told in my youth you will never get rich working for someone else and never did but after listening to some friends who worked for their selves I am glad I didn't have the hassle. :)


LSemmens - 25-5-2013 at 11:09

I know what that's all about. I, too, was close enough to those who did run their own business not to want the hassle. I also found that there was always work there if you wanted it, provided you weren't too fussy.
