    I believe they also bought Thames Water as well or at least put in a bid.

    Considering their economy, how much US debt they own, their attempts to loan the EU money, purchases in the UK and the exploitation of African countries leaving many countries looking like new Hong Kong instead of employing natives more and their rise in intellectual export along side their manufacturing exports, now is the time to learn Chinese.

    I'm just debating whether Cantonese or Mandarin will be more useful?

    If all the UK companies like M&S and Tesco would stop importing cheap tat from China because it is ten times cheaper and lasts 2 months, I reckon China would not have that much cash to go buying things. It really is a win win for all. A gadget used to last a lifetime because companies cared about reputation but now it has become a profit metric. The consumers have been now brainwashed into thinking anything you buy lasts just a few months and then a new "version" will come anyway allowing you to upgrade.

    Why ? Eating lots of it might give you wings.

    I feel like a tank in Tianamen Square, I could murder a Weetabix...

    Cold milk! Surely no-one likes hot milk on Weetabix! That sounds disgusting.

    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 teaspoons finely shredded fresh ginger
    1 pound live razor clams
    1 1/2 tablespoons sa cha sauce
    1/2 cup water
    1 tablespoon thinly sliced red bell pepper
    2 green onions, cut into thin strips
    3 Weetabix

    Directions

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Stir the ginger into the hot oil, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the razor clams in their shells, and cook until all of the clams have opened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the sa cha sauce and water, and bring to a boil. Toss with the bell pepper and green onions to serve over lightly toasted Weetabix.

    Footnotes

    Cook's Notes
    Put the clams in salt water for at least 15 minutes to take away the sand. Then drain the water and set aside.
    Lightly sprinkle milk on the Weetabix and toast in the oven under a low heat for 10 minutes

    Hope they aren't going to be covered in noodles and soy sauce. Anyway, "basics" are cheaper and taste same.
