    As opposed to eating the shell and head and stuff, of course! lol. I've never heard of someone eating an unpeeled prawn.

    Please tell me you wouldn't eat a prawn in this state :

    Meh, you're relying on a dyspraxic person surviving a week of skiing
    Skiing?! :eek: I am seriously impressed. I once dislocated and fractured my knee because I tripped over a sofa, so I wouldn't be much use I'm afraid

    I did once at a buffet! I had never ate a prawn in my life so I hadn't a clue. I was with my mates and naturally they told me that's how you eat it - whole.


    It was quite an experience.

    lol you two are too funny, bless. You've never been to Spain then and asked for a paella? They always come like this, cooked but whole, and you have to peel them yourself.

    And yep in buffets over here they're often like that.

    I struggle with them so much and make a right hash job of peeling them. My husband has to peel them for me, and ironically he hates prawns and pretty much all seafood apart from a few types of fish.

    I wish I could prove you wrong but you're right, doctors have the most appalling handwriting. Can't wait till everything is digital and hospital notes are a thing of the past.

    You know real feminism is actually trying to relieve men of this pressure to 'be a real man' and not express their emotions without feeling bad about it. Watch Emma Watson's speech at the UN.

    HeForShe has given me hope but the speech was sufficiently vague enough to feel more of an appeasement than a promise of action

    I also fear that even feminists working to absolve said guy of said pressures will never be attracted to the now emotionally freed guy, because one's projected value tends to decrease when one is free to reveal all humanity and insecurity. Without seeming overly whiney and forever alone I have always believed feminism to struggle to take effect behind closed doors, do women even want it to take effect here? Who knows.

    It really depends on the circles you mix in. At my uni, loads of people I know are/ would be attracted to guys who express their emotions. However, if you were to go to a typical bravado filled night club in Essex the general concessus might be different- or at least they'd have to get used to the idea. I'm just saying don't worry that no girls would be attractedt to guys like that. I was talking about this to my friend today and we were saying that relationships are better when guys express their emotions at the time of difficulty and don't just bottle them up and then snap.

    Okay this might seem odd, but I don't know how to like.. casually skip? I can do it with a skipping rope on the spot, but I can't just ... skip.

    People try to explain to me "it's between a hop and a jump" but then I just hop or jump lmao?

    Automated shopping tills. Something always goes wrong.

    No one wants to use them though. I always find myself in ques with other people for a staff ran till. There is normally some staff member trying to get us to use the angry automated ones.
    Why does nobody know how to spell the word queue?
