    Carbon Footprint? Carbon small house floor plan, more like.

    I'm appalled at the waste...
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    "Je ne le pense pas"?

    Now I gave up on French about three weeks into A Level and can't remember much but surely that 'le' shouldn't be in there as it would suggest that 'think' is a noun when it's a verb? Isn't it just 'Je ne pense pas'?
    Everything that is supposed to be in heaven is already here on earth.

    Are you sure you didn't check out the "duty frees" (as it's not technically duty free anymore), Martin rofl

    When I go to France I always get a text from ROAMING :S
    The Very Right Honourable Lady Tarry of the Alphabetty thread
    -I just love finding bargains and saving money
    I love to travel as much as I can when I can
    Life has a way to test you, it's how you deal with this that matters

    yes le shouldnt be there it is je ne pense pas but i think martin wrote it in a very ironic way .

  • :confused: All this for a 90 second clip? It's perhaps not a surprise ITV is in such dire financial straits!

    I'm surprised that GMTV hadn't heard about colour separation overlay. Makes me wonder what sort of 'talent' is employed by ITV if they don't use it for this purpose. ;)
