The metric system was introduced 40 to 50 years ago; all the now over 70s would have been young enough then to start using it! "New metric system"?

Anyway, this comment is a little off topic!

University educated

One of the big problems in my area is the older generation (70+) all stood together chatting in the supermarket. Leaning on each others trolleys, saying it's a terrible time while hugging each other. I overheard one say, "I measure in feet and inches, not this new metric system, so until someone tells me what two metres is in feet and inches I'll do what i want." So it's not just students whinging.

I have just been watching a video on youtube, it took me back a few years, to when I watched a film illustrating factory practices in Scandinavia. We Brits were having a bad time with strikes etc at the time. This film was supposed to show us Brits how a factory should be run. We have moved forward thank god commented a Brit visiter, 30 years ago we used to run our factory in this manner, then we were modernized and the Health and Safety of workers become an important issue.
Believe me the factory products we are importing now, that were being manufactured in this film make me despair. I realize that health and safety can go a bit far, but what we are importing from Asia now is going back to the stone age and apparently these practices are creeping back into our British manufacturing centers to keep prices down. Young people operating power presses and massive power saws with no guards for instance must be outlawed. Money is not a god to be worshiped.

I no longer mourn the passing of pecks, bushels but cups well really and even a 'stick' of butter they are quite mad. There was an experiment with a bag of flour a cup and some scales. Fifty people measured a cup of flour and each cup was weighed not one was the same. Boycott books with cup measurements or write ours for the Ameticain market in bushels packs and gills!!!

Don’t know how old this page was. Went to a Lakeside today (13th October 2020) and couldn’t believe the i bush in Next. I’m 49 and remember how Next was the shop to go to. You wanted to buy everything in their stores and the jewellery was brilliant. Now, you’re pushed to find anything worth giving your money easy for. It’s so sad!!

Students don’t know the meaning of hardship, think of the people around the world who are starving and have no idea where the next meal will be coming from, think of what the young would have had to go through during the Second World War? The problem is students will more than likely attend a university that is not in their area and will have travelled say for instance from London up to Dundee and can you imagine if anyone of them had Covid 19? Take out the fact that all they want to do is party but the process enough of moving in would be enough to spread the virus. I’m fed up of students moaning, seeing posters on the windows please help or please us Beer it’s pathetic, what these snowflakes need to get is get some perspective, think what it would be like to be suffering with Covid. A close friend of mine has had the virus back in April and he is still not right, he struggles to walk far and still struggles for breath. Think of this it won’t be forever and they have plenty of time to party after we have conquered this awful virus.
