    These things might not apply to you but I am sure that many people would agree with some of the things in that list. Regarding the deaths by licking 9V batteries, these are just some statistics released by the NHS. These statistics are not in any way representing Britain, it is merely a few idiots who do stupid things whilst intoxicated.
    Honestly, how many things from that list do you think apply only in Britain, if anywhere at all? Pizzas arriving faster than ambulances? What *******s. As for NHS statistics, if you can find them I'd be amazed. Killer 9V batteries? Electric shocks kill people by disrupting or stopping the electrical signals in the heart, and in order to do that the current needs to pass through the heart, and licking a battery means it only passes locally through the tongue, and then at a very low current level. It's utter *******s made up by someone with too much time on their hands, just like the rest of that list.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
