    Nowadays, you watch the news/a news site or two, and factor in the bias, then you may get an idea of what is the truth. Or watch EVERYTHING, OD on the news, and get an idea of the truth.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I forget where I saw the article, but I saw that the "Scottish Independence" group was poised to rise again if Brexit was successful: they would want back in the EU.

    If the Leaves really wanted to establish Fortress Britain against immigrants then Scotland leaving and joining the EU would turn the Scottish border into a Big Fat Problem.

    Meh. Shorter than the US Mexico border. I know a guy who'll get the Scots to build it for the Brits. < facepalm >

    Watching history happen is such a high. This reminds me of the wall coming down. Although that was 20x more powerful and unexpected. I still haven't really wrapped my mind around it and it happened 25 years ago.

    Every September at Last Night of the Proms, the audience at the Royal Albert Hall sings "Rule Britannia". The refrain:

    Rule Britannia!
    Britannia rule the waves
    Britons never, never, never shall be slaves

    The mood seems that the Britons did not want to be slaves of Brussels.

    Other markets starting to fall. Wondering how long it'll take Scotland to get another independence referendum.
