    Adulting GCSE: Things that should be mandatory to learn in school

    I think the big ones for me would be a general "Financial Capability" education which would cover several of things talked about above such as how to understand your payslip and deductions from it, how to budget, what types of current account exist, what insurance products you may need at...

    Things that used to be common place in people’s homes

    Hmm fair point I can't recall if my fellows who did Dual Award rather than Triple Award also learned how to do it. And as for mandatory Adulting GCSE there's all sorts of things that should be in an award like that!

    Things that used to be common place in people’s homes

    I was taught (officially, my dad had taught me years previously) how to wire a plug as part of my GCSE Physics in 2005/2006!

    Mornington Crescent

    I've checked the rules and consulted the play by play replay in the Forum software and can confirm that Ruislip Gardens is offside so the move is disallowed and @SteveM70 is given a yellow daffodil and is in Nidd. Last valid move was therefore Hatton Cross Sailing close to the wind with this...

    Err, you've not really got much evidence of that. Actually sounds like a bit of a self-report to me...

    Mornington Crescent

    Sorry but Crossrail is wild and I think you're now in Nidd! So that takes us back to Benthnal Green as the last valid move.

    Cricket

    Thing that I still find unforgivable about that was that they corrupted a younger player as part of their wheeze. I don't want to infantilise Bancroft (he was 26 at the time!) but I can well imagine that if you're at the start of your international career and your captain and vice-captain talk...

    2020 US Presidential Election

    In some respects, considering a US Presidential election year will easily have over 100m voters, it would be more suspicious if you couldn't find any sign of fraud at all! It would be to neat!!

    Brexit matters

    So three weeks ago I could buy a car and not worry about where the various components were made (I might want to for environmental, political or other reasons but it wasn't neccessary). But now if I want to buy a car I have to worry about where the components were made? This is a benefit how?

    New British Passport

    Aha very interesting! That does explain the wording on the old passports. Though considering those days are now long gone you'd have thought that they'd have taken the moment to update the wording for the new passport...

    Train Sim World 2

    I think that's likely. Looking at the routes that they currently have out and on the roadmap I don't think there's anywhere else at the moment that it would fit 'natively' as all their other routes are too modern. It also surely makes sense to start with something simple for your first outing...

    New British Passport

    The only thing that I'm not really a fan of (apart from the obvious lack of it being an EU passport but there's a separate thread for that :lol:) is that the wording at the top "BRITISH PASSPORT" feels a bit naff to me? A little self-important perhaps? I believe historically that was the wording...

    Middlesbrough railway station masterplan

    It is as there's no crossover for them to reach P1 coming in from Middlesbrough (though I wish it would be possible to add one, it'd be a useful bit of flexibility when Northern end up spinning at Redcar). TPE regularly send 6-car 185s to Redcar Central but as they have SDO it's not really a...

    Mornington Crescent

    February 2021 Lockdown Simplified Rules as stated in the opening post. Consulting them indicates that escalators are allowed but only but only in the down direction apart from when you're playing an opposite diagonal. Interesting choice! Though I think if I go for Old Holborn that should see...

    Brexit matters

    That was far too late for such things to be taking place. Such referendums to work out what the electorate actually wanted from Brexit would have needed to happen before Article 50. Once that ball was rolling it was probably too late to really be going to ask the electorate what they actually...
