    Wondered what everyones thoughts were. I don't remember the rail network when it was public, so don't really have a frame of reference. The current costs, for me at least, seem high; and the service is incredibly dependent on which station/company operates their. Would more nationalised rail...

    Article from the Independent, citing a survey recently conducted, discusses popular misconceptions held by the public. Interesting read, anyway. Looks likely there is an element of probability neglect or observational selection bias going on in most of us: <a class="postlink"...

    Money Issues

    Hi all, just need a bit of advice. My missus has got a job paying 99K just out of uni. I've asked one regular member to this board, and he was about as much use as a chocolate fire guard. So, considering shes earning at least 25K more than I will...should I chuck her? Regards, Roaminblue
