    There was another one in Newdigate a few days ago - that's 14 since April. An elderly gentleman in the pub last night was saying that it's only because in the last 2 years fracking protestors have got cheap equipment off the internet to find these things and it's probably been going on for years just that no one has ever measured it before and no scientists are involved anyway.

    When I told him that it was the BGS who were reporting it, that they had been recording data for decades and nothing like the activity in the last 6 months has ever been recorded in this area before, he wasn't happy.

    Probably just cyclists falling off their bikes after being shot.

    Townies sometimes have accidents in the countryside, particularly those with flashing lights on their helmets/bikes that then cause horses to bolt, or blind other road users.

    Good to see the bias is not just restricted to cyclists but to all outsiders.

    I am not sure which I hate more. Casual bigots. Or Dorks.

    I've no problem with people who take responsibility and show respect.

    ...that's why you need to be careful.
