Same here MigV6, the salt only ever comes out when we have chip shop chips.

It doesn't even come out when we have home cooked chips.
I have salt on just about everything, and 2 1/2 spoons of sugar in my coffee, and loads of cakes and biscuits, and unhealthy cereal for my breakfast. Been nice knowing you all  :(
Much like our very own Pikey Pensioner, Auto Addict. He has about 3m spoons of sugar in tea, and enjoys the occasional drag on a fag (:P).  But he is about 200 years old, and healthier than your average OOF member ;D

Iím sure you mean skinnier? ::) :D

I like to call it 'easier to kidnap'
Or "Possible to kidnap without a low-loader"? ::)

'Exceeds MTOW for Antonov' ::)
Is it a volume issue or weight? Beluga? ;D

I think it depends which way you can roll him after a naga.  Speaking of Beluga, I am trying to blag my way on to one of them next time I am in Toulouse  ::)

The cockpit is a standard A300, and the back is a cavern... the lack of seats, ceilings, overhead lockers and bulkheads in commercial freighters really changes the perspective of space in a given fuselage, the A300 is not a small aircraft to begin with. The Beluga takes flying volume to a whole new level 8)

The new BelugaXL (being trialled at the moment) can carry (admittedly parts of) the A380 Fuselage, or so I'm told!  :D

Yes, just in time for production of the A380 to start winding down ::)

Long live the A350  (fingers crossed) ;D

The trouble with artificial sweeteners is that some have Aspartame in them and that has carcinogenic properties.

I'd read that your body cant properly process it and it stores it in such places as fat in your brain and it slowly builds up and turns into a poison.

I've just bought lunch in Gregg's.  A chicken baguette, a bag of crisps and a 500ml bottle of full fat Coke.  :y

I paid 14p tax on the Coke.   >:(  I think they should have scales in the shop and only apply the tax to fat folk!  ;)

Now that's my kind of lunch, but not full fat coke. I'm so used to Diet Coke that the proper stuff tastes like syrup.
Same with milk. I got so used to the red stuff that even semi skimmed tastes like cream now.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

But that would amount to a tax on people from the North. ::) ::) ;)
