Our best teapot (best in the sense of making a yummy cup of tea and pouring it without dribbling) is gradually getting more and more chipped. I dread the day when we lose it! Sympathies, airship ...

Yers one broke ones favourite cup a while back,twer a very posh wafer thin porceline breakfast cup (a very large species of cup) it made a perfect cuppa the wafer thiness of the walls did not remove heat from the boiling water as one poured it thither ,hence the tea was spiffing,one mourned the lose that cup for many a months,in fact one thinks one posted on the tragety at the time .

One still has and used a sort of thick blue plastic sugar basin and butter dish than ones mum got in the fifties,think originally there was a whole tea set,this stuff was the latest thing at the time, one also has a wooden toast rack that ones grandad made in 1930 that one still uses occasionaly,and one sometimes eats ones supper off a tray one made in woodwork at school in the fiftes.
We don't believe in wasting nowt up here

The other great loss one suffered was one's blue stripey china egg cup,one's boiled egg just does not taste the same from the bloody horrible plastic one that replaced it.

Can one imagine the look on the face of HM inspector of schools walking into a school and hearing that ditty echoing through the halls nowadays?

I rather suspect he would think that standards had risen dramatically!!

Entropy applies to tea and other cups the same as it does thermodynamics. Penrose and Hawkings have probably written gobs about falling tea cups and the arrow of time (well, without that we should see the odd cup coming together - wouldn't we?).

My favorite cup is a 'C' cup rather than a 'tea' cup.

Good-day, all. Surfaced here, is it safe to stick head out?

I think Schrodinger might have had problems with favourite cups, whether egg, size C, runneth over, or any.

I thought Schrodinger only had trouble telling if a cat was alive or not

One lives in dread of the day when ones tea mug goes to the china shop in the sky. It has a bloody great chunk missing out of the rim and a bloody great crack running through it. However it keeps my tea in spiffing condition and is my favourite breakfast mug.

Tis raining here and one was a bit of a blonde idiot today. I left my lights on in the car and had to get the RAC out, I couldn't find anyone with jump leads I think I may buy a set. The RAC man was very nice and said that I wasn't daft just unlucky and that I do need a new battery because mine is leaking. So that was nice of him, he could have just as easily said I was a dim bint.

You seem to have fallen into a logical trap. The answer to that question would depend (ignoring for the moment the question of the cats gender), in Dr. Schrodinger's quantum world, on whether the cat was alive or dead, wouldn't it?

I imagine if the cat were male the question would relate more to spin and Wolfgang Pauli's exclusion priniciple.

It's alright, I stole that role tonight. One saw Mr Picker in the pub earlier and waved, to which he waved back...to the bloke behind me (It'll teach me for sitting in dark corners), so I snook out in shame and have now missed out on a no doubt lovely evening at the pub with the Pickers.
I did however get £10 for venturing out onto a very wet and windblown Arthur's Seat, the purpose for which was cancelled....so at least it has been a mildly productive evening afterall.
to be born blonde
....wrong!

10 to 'verture'? Doesn't seem enough for that sort of thing. They get more in France even when the cost of currency exchange is deducted.
