    An amazing list of very specific things that HMRC have had to classify for import and export purposes. “fireside companion set”, “article having a shape of a cylinder”, “stress balls, spectacles, goggles and the like”, etc.

    @blaine Now I feel the need to tell our mutual followers that everything's fine really :)

    @blaine But I can't be arsed with arguments in which I get called names, so never mind.

    @blaine I was trying to establish who "we" was because there are plenty of people who seem to disagree with your statement.

    @blaine @worrydream @adactio Is that the royal "we"?

    @tomstuart OK, not just empty boxes, but still no better than chance: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADE_651

    @tomstuart Maybe it’s something like those bomb detectors the army used for years that were just empty boxes.

    Just walked past where I picked up my A-Level results. The school building has been replaced by a carpark.

    For my A-Levels I got B, D and E. But I was doing art so that didn't really matter. And the E was for Art A-Level.

    Overnight, @GreatDismal told an amazing twitter story with retweets, about a terrifying dystopic future America. A bit outlandish. #Ferguson

    Hey kids, I didn't do A-levels but thinks worked out ok. Go to art school, it's great!

    I got awful A-levels, but I'm a white male from a stable home with a computer and middle class charm so the meritocracy sorted it for me.
