English spelling: Should be UK English spelling
Daylight Savings Time: Get rid
Measurements: Should all use Metric system (And this is coming from someone who grew up in the 70's). Weights, Metric system too. WTF is a "Fluid Ounce"? Are there 16 fluid ounces in a fluid pound? 14 fluid pounds in a fluid stone? Temperature measurement too. "30 degrees outside" "Nice" "Are you nuts? Water freezes at 24 degrees!!!" "WTF?"
Agree with everything except the bolded bit.

We absolutely have to have driving on both sides of the road. Otherwise there would be carnage.

It would also be a total waste of 50% of our road space.

You didn't think this through did you.

It would cost an absolute bloody fortune what with all the competition from China.

And it would probably go off by the time you got it to Kitwe unless you UHT'd it and that's an abomination.

For lighting BC22 bayonet was the universal standard in these parts.

But now shops are trying to flog off screw in , screw up E27 rubbish.

I've never had to tighten a normal bulb.The old incandescent E27's needed tightening every few months due to heating/cooling expansion. A valve grinding tool is handy for this complete and utter waste of time.


If you see a shop selling screw in lighting fixtures, it's only because they cheaped out.

I'm so extremely strong that I don't expect these bulbs not to be crushed as I screw them in. So I vote for the bayonet too!

The x button on controllers should be in the same place.

Chlorine trifluoride.

It's a great stain remover.
Also pretty good on removing labels and paint, and warts.

In fact it's very close to being a universal solvent too.
In the very, very literal sense of do not drag, roll, slide, or drop the container.

That is some scary stuff! No known way to extinguish it when ignited and reacts violently with almost all substances.

Political parties. They are all the same anyway, we would save a lot of time and money if we did away with elections and all parties just merged into one and got on with it.

Music. Why are there so many styles and genres? There should only be a small selection of approved songs that everyone could listen to, preferably all dedicated to Michael Martin
You had me upto Michael Martin .
