It's official, the EU has ruled that you have a right to sell a software licence on the second hand market; http://www.lo-ping.org/2012/07/03/eu...end-users-you/

The implication of this is that DD services (like steam, origin and the various console based market places) will have to allow customers to trade in their purchases or sell them to other customers.

Do you think Mitt Romney is fully wireless, or is there a port under the hair for his charging cable?

Leader of the Scottish Catholic Church declares war on gay marriage.

No, it's Wales who have all the sheep.

Melinda Gates, anti-abortion Catholic, devotes her life and her considerable fortune to promoting contraception. Melinda, you are doing it right.

I guess she is one of the few anti-abortion people that realize that birth control leads to less unwanted pregnancies which means less abortion.

Something so terrible, so horrific and such a blight on the world has finally united the Republicans and Democrats!

...personally I think they look OK, although I wouldn't want my country's representatives wearing one.

I think it's an amusing irony born partly of truths, partly from the stereotype of the big-bad US that thrives on low-cost overseas labor and goods.

....

That they're wearing uniforms to represent their country, but that those uniforms are made in China.

Scotland has sheep, unless you are suggesting only Wales has sheep that go for that sort of thing - or that anyone interested in that sort of affair goes to Wales, which could be true. I've never broached the subject with sheep to be perfectly honest.

Toronto still struggles to allow for a wider variety of street food.

I'm not sure why city council struggles with something seemingly so simple. There are tons of people out there wanting to open up their own mobile food fare, and cities all over the world offer a huge variety of food - yet right now you are stuck between fries and hotdogs really. Just baffles me why they are inevitably spending more time on this then needed.

Wales is the one with all the related stereotypes. Scotland just...has sheep.

Sorry - but Scottish Sheep jokes are pretty well known here. Here's a few to start you off

What do you call a Scotsman with 500 girl friends?
A Shepherd.

How do Scotsmen find sheep in long grass?
Quite good actually.

Scotland - Where men are men, and sheep are nervous.


You are missing out on a whole new genre of jokes! I suppose i'm missing out on the Welsh ones as i've never heard one.

Well I've been brought up with the same jokes, but with "Welshman" in the place of "Scotsman"...so they're technically the same genre.

IMO Welsh makes more sense; the Scots have booze and thriftyness, the Welsh need to take what they can get.
