    I always think that Loomes make watches for Bristol car buyers.

    In fact I'd buy a Loomes and a Bristol -- but only if I'd won the lottery.

    Interesting, thanks.

    My primary school certainly didn't have a pool or a minibus (or even anywhere to eat lunch![1]). We were taken by hired coach to the nearest council swimming baths for...

    Yup, indeed. Life is a set of risks.

    My view is simply that one should ideally do the conscious assessment and thinking before taking action -- where possible, of course. ;-)

    Wow. How very deeply unpleasant, to say the least.

    Glad you came through it ok.

    I know this sort of thing would be make me very angry indeed.

    Thanks. That's a very interesting bit of intelligence.


    I'd still love to know who/where the court case was, if anyone knows.

    It seems to me, as I observe above, that some volcanoes are more dangerous than others. White Island was well known as being very active; I know I would not have gone there, even if other people were...

    Yup, but the thing is: What does this prove? The fact that many people do it does not, in and of itself, tell us anything about how dangerous it is. Indeed, this is the effect I referred to in #3....

    Very interesting. Do you have a reference to this? I'd love to see the details.



    I wonder if that is really compatible with the judgment, or something the AD invented.

    I don't think so, necessarily. I think people (generally) just get carried away by peer actions. I.e. "If lots of people are going there then why shouldn't I?".

    People forget to carry out their...
