And they do check the blood as carefully as they can - its just not possible for any test to be totally accurate (which is why they ask you all those q...

Give Blood Today!

Mon 14 Nov The Younger Hall 13:00-17:00 Tue 15 Nov The Younger Hall 13:00-17:00 No doubt the claim that the rules for giving blood are homophobic will be the next post (looking at the last time this was mentioned on the sinner).

There appear to be a whole pile of people who managed to miss out on an MMR booster, and the odd person who didn't have it as a baby ei...

Re:

Yeah- i looked into this a while ago - hotmail is fine with OE for old accounts but rejects new ones.

Pity - especially when its rivals a...

You are all talking about commercialism and alcohol being the way to enjoy life - fact is, many people enjoy life without the trappings of a "modern" world. If a person has a deep reason to live, and enough resources to live it, then they are, in general, happy. We look at 3rd world countries and pi...

My wee brother has a debit card (Visa Electron) and he is only 14 so I wouldn't take those as proof you are over 18!
