A question that has nothing to do with the merits of the case. I asked this repeatedly on BAUT but no-one ever answered:

Who get the punitive damages in a case like this?

And a follow up question: If the plaintiff, why?

I'm vegetarian, have been for years. I have no idea why a vegan wouldn't eat sugar either beet or cane. Enzo has a point, pretty much anything with flour in it has some insect life present, as do veg etc. I think generally the line is drawn between deliberate use or abuse of animals and incidental.

Yes there are fantasy football leagues, also cricket, rugby, etc. I even run a small scale Tour de France one. I tend to avoid them as I can't pick players from teams I hate, or players I hate, so I have no chance of winning. Celtic kept up there away form in the CL last night, they are now 0-1-13 f...

Ranger 0 Barcelona 0, OMFSM we might actually qualify from this group. The despair I can cope with, it's hope I can't take. :D

I voted "aggravated by humans". I also think we just don't know enough to say whether the current cycle is entirely natural, and whether it will cool off anyway.

Oh, and by the way: The "draw that suited them both", as you say, wasn't a draw. Germany scored the winner in the 11th minute (a typically uninspired Horst Hrubesch header), and after that, it was Algeria, Germany, Austria 4-2 points each, with Germany and Austria leading Algeria on goal ...

I liked the complaint from a trailer owner that their place "was worth nothing now". Wtf was it worth before?
