Ah 1am parent, the humour may get darker when you're forking out to support them through university, you won't be leaving DL anytime soon.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

rumours on the internet of a massive death. if true it is stunning. don't want to say who till I check to see if reports are true or not yet though.  will be back later



Hmmm, turns out it wasn't a massive death - just a massive prick with nothing better to do than post every day for attention!

 

 

More likely just a tiny prick.

Britain's oldest Poppy seller, Olive Cooke, jumped to her death at age 92:

 

http://www.dailymail...uest-hears.html

 

She was a long-time sufferer from depression. The article makes it sound as if her constant awareness of human misery caused it.

Feel free to also post it in the appropriate suicide threat.

If she had a 5-day-week and worked about 200 days each year, then that's 15200 days of work in 76 years, or about 20 poppies each day. Hmm... is it custom to buy just one of them or several at once? If the latter is the case, then that rate is indeed a bit poor...

It's worse than that - the article says 30,000.

 

But anyway - it doesn't work like that.  Poppies are only sold for a limited period each year: usually from around 27 October to Remembrance Sunday or 11 November.  So only a couple of weeks.  I am a poppy seller, but I wouldn't have the faintest idea how many I've sold in ten years.

not sure why I typed 300,000. Perhaps I should have just copied and pasted from the website instead of hurridly trying to type it out. Even so, with those couple of weeks and spread out over 76 years, it still only tallies at about 20 poppies per day.
