The link on the front page to This article was phrased as, "Colossal telescope given go-ahead". Once I clicked through, the headline was the slightly downgraded, "European Extremely Large Telescope given go-ahead". I was expecting the final paragraph to be along the lines of "Although the pretty big telescope is not quite as big as first hoped, the engineers have promised scientists that it will be very, very shiny and definitely have that 'new telescope' smell when they take it out of the box."

"Almost no-one would rather sit in silence than talk to a friendly person" I guess this person has never been on public transport in London, or even in a lift?

Re daily stat and dresses,one of my daughters had a Saturday job in a clothes shop in UK and every Saturday the assistants all took a new dress from the stock for the weekend and brought them back into display on the Monday. So much for buying a "new" dress ...only worn once.....

Goodness, this is becoming tedious! If you hadn't planned on leaving your child behind, but conveniently remembered to pick up your coat/keys/mobile (insert as appropriate), why titter about your collective forgetfulness? Unattended children do not know harm when they see it. Parental responsibility doesn't cease when you're not paying attention. Stop crying 'woe us' just because you have children. It's just boring. I'll get my coat - oh, and leave the child behind.
