Would you jump into a fire if you were told it was safe to do so by a fireman? Or would you possibly stop and think first?

The trouble with this world is people just don't think for themselves anymore - and it is getting worse - people's lives are too regimented!

I have noticed lately that people in the UK actually obay the green man and won't cross on a red - even if the road is totally clear!!! That used to only happen in places like Switzerland!

Careful, Jono, you might lose that hard earned third greenie again - you know, the one that was snatched so cruelly from you this afternoon

It's a term commonly used by Coroners to describe a cause of death. Most people who die by accident, eg. falling off a cliff, are deemed to have died by misadventure. In this country, the causes are classified as Natural causes(illness), Misadventure, Lawful/unlawful killing, Suicide, Open verdict, (cause cannot be verified), Industrial disease.

For instance, if I was to wrap anchor chain around your leg and push you off your boat, that would be seen by most people (not jono) as unlawful killing. If you jumped off on purpose, that would be suicide. If their was any doubt that you didn't mean to jump, that would be seen as an open verdict. If it all happened by accident, that would be misadventure. I'll be in Pwllhelli this weekend if you want a practical demonstration.

For a Welshman you are indeed well travelled, Codprawn. Come to think of it, are you actually Welsh? What is your name? How old are you? Have you ever been married? Are there any mountains you haven't climbed? Are there any cars you haven't driven? Do you or any of your mates earn less than 150K? And the question we're all dying to ask - how do you manage to drive 120,000 miles per annum when you're on Ribnet every afternoon and half the night? More to the point, as a 'Director - Computers', WHY are you driving 120,000 miles per annum?!

I am not Welsh - I am a strange species of deep sea fish!

I know that you love me really so there is a greeny for you. Always very informative on this staff Mr DM

So what they say is that the killing of the three people was by accident? But from what the BBC report says the person responsible for the boat put more people on it than permitted by the manufacturers. So how can the death of the three be by accident?? Don't get it. ..... and don't give any ideas to Jono

By the way you remember that long thread you did about drawing I still have it.
