    What of the plant or the woman you want to objectify? I'm disappointed people I respect on this site can be so shallow...

    Maybe you just haven't noticed before but my last three cars have had those tactile reminders so I don't think they are that new.

    The original Maid Marion was Bernadette O'Farrell, Patricia Driscoll was her replacement after she left.

    Sheer Bliss!

    Of course there are calories in booze but if you shed more than you consume you will lose weight. The source of the calories makes no difference. My waistline looks like I'm smuggling cushions and still gaining but I don't drink...

    Losing weight is as Margie says simple physics. When calories going in are less than the calories going out you will lose weight, simples! Some foods are have more calories so you have to eat less, some have fewer so you can eat more but the basic formula holds true. There are some medical conditions of course that produce weight gain but they are quite rare. Some. I'm one. suffer from chronic can'tbebothereditis and so weight gains are to be expected.

    Stop-Start on cars

    It was certainly true not so long ago but the latest autos have closed the gap. I seriously doubt they are more economical but the best, which usually means expensive, are as good. My car weighs the thick end of 2 tonne with a 3ltr engine, cruising at 70 gives me 53.2 mpg - it's an automatic. Regarding F1 cars I think they are semi auto sequential. There is no clutch as we know it and the driver uses the paddles to change gear. The only auto F1 car I know of (Williams) used a version of the DAF variable transmission, it was banned before it ever raced.
