    I once had this money-making scheme based on woodland burials. A lot of people are eschewing traditional burials and want to become part of nature again, so I think that woodland burials will take off.
    My real moneymaking breakthrough though was to bury people vertically and not horizontally. With woodland at serious £££s per acre, I would only wish to buy a few square feet. Dig down far enough and literally pile ‘em high, that’s the USP.

    Australia might be fine, but France? There's little integration in the ethnic areas on the outskirts of Paris. Which country has more "home grown" terrorists?

    It's colder, so no hurry.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    This chap already did that:

    Major Peter Labilliere's Grave - unconsecrated burials in Britain

    I think a better idea would be to legalise cannibalism and use human flesh to replace that of those poor little cows, sheep, pigs, chickens etc. Some transmittable diseases are a problem but that US practice of rinsing the meat with chlorine should sort that.

    According to the interweb-thingy it was Sheryl Crow (lolz) but Garth Brooks said much the same......I fear for the future of humanity, I really do.

    I seem to recall that quote in Ficino almost word-for-word, so maybe it was Plato or another of those Socratic blokes.

    Don't make it out to be a western issue that we have to fix by being even more tolerant.
    Sorry, you are wrong. Northern Ireland is a perfect example of the problem of segregated education, nothing to do with Muslims, but I know you can’t get your little snowflake brain around that.

    I think you are deflecting a bit because I pointed out a problem with your argument. I've never said NI was anything to do with Muslims. You did that to make me out as a racist.

    If you want to have a sensible talk about NI, I'm happy to. Worked there for a while and love the place and people.

    It was a minor deflection, the main point was that in NI they had segregated education, with people calling themselves Christian, and the segregation of education is part of why the troubles went on as long as they did.

    Segregation is never a good idea. News is by definition largely bad, one needs contact with others is necessary to see the other side. It beats me why we encourage multiculturalism. Nowt wrong with harmless cultural traditions but it often goes beyond that.
