    About time the EU got it, my main issue is the timing
    I think it should have been given to one of the founders or someone senior in the EU as a representative, or maybe shared between a couple of people.

    Does it mean I can go to the ceremony when it's awarded?

    I didn't realise you got bovril at English football. Do you get proper scotch pies? I've also heard that you get stuff like hot dogs, and if you're lucky a steak pie, not a proper scotch pie.

    Nope, I support Partick Thistle. My dad's from Glasgow, and didn't want to support one of the old firm.
    You can get hot dogs and Bovril at Underhill (Barnet's home ground), and now you can see a 'Pitbull' too, as Edgar Davids has joined the club.

    Sometimes do, depends if they think they can make enough of a profit on it :P

    Our stadiums are just filled with Pukka pies, so I have no idea where you stand on them and how close to scotch pies they are :P But yeah, we do get hot dogs, and there are always pies in northern stadiums but ive heard rumoours that they're now absent in some southern stadiums
    The bovril at Hampden at the Olympics had the "Bovril" part taped over with black duct tape, because it's a brand name, and to do with the Olympic advertising, leaving only "beefy drink" :lol:

    We get hot dogs and all that too, but I've heard that hot dogs and pizzas and other assorted similar food are the only food available at some English grounds. I couldn't really imagine not having a scotch pie and a bovril at the football!

    Well, so I lost my job but I'm not too concerned. It was a temporary contract for an agency and I had a good 6 months working there. The agency were confident they could find me another job on Monday and I'm confident I'll find something else next week too.

    The worst thing is having my head full of RAC knowledge I will never, ever need again.

    Unless aliens attack and threaten to incinerate the Earth unless someone teaches them everything there is to know about the RAC. Keep that in mind and don't you dare forget any of it.

    Food options in English grounds usually boil down to Hot Dog, Burger or just a generic pie which tastes of very little besides Hot. Don't think I've seen a proper pie at a football ground in a long time.

    De jure is in effect a decision made by the courts (so the supreme courts decides that segregation is unconstituional is a de jure decision). While de facto is a law made by the government/congress/parliament.

    Typically De facto is followed closer than De Jure (look at American Civil Rights' cases and you'll see).

    No Problem. Its part of my History Course at A-Level at the moment. So I'm not complaining.

    Outside of the context of courts, it can be used to represent a dichotomy of political reality.

    E.g. Vichy France was De Jure outside of the influence of the Third Reich, but was de facto controlled by them, et.c

    I kept seeing those terms for years but did not know what they mean

    De facto is in practice, de jure is in law.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_facto - this is quite clear.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_jure - or here.

    If only there were sort of mechanism to scan (or perhaps search) a large volume of information (Some sort of engine, in effect). It could then be used to search a large repository of all the collected human knowledge spread amongst computers around the world. A sort of web of interlinked ideas.
