So, my position is this: the referendum is to decide independence, not anything else. I want to see a change for a fairer and more equal society, and I wish for a cleaner environment, and want a healthier NHS, amongst other things. Those are causes to fight for in themselves, and I don't want them just for me, and my neighbours who happen to live in Scotland. That line between England and Scotland has little meaning to me and I don't want to be distracted from more important issues by expending too much thought and effort on national and historical divisions. As cellist Pablo Casals said “The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?”

And puma showing different number of comments on this post in each of its 4 tabs.v Odd.
Do find number of comments vs comments shown in pump a bit crazy. Assume some aren't public.
Luke, your comment doesn't show in puma, and nor do 2 of mine on this post. The fact you liked one comment shows in puma, but not in impeller. My overall feeling is arrrrrrrrgggghhh! :-)

@mcnalu wonder where the fault is? The clients, the servers? Pump stream itself?

I am entering into negotiations with my trousers.
Have they kidnapped your legs?I can hardly expected to resolve the Syrian crisis in my underpants, can I? Who do you think I am, Tony Blair?
Blair had a special relationship with his underpants. Still, I think it's always worth bringing them to the table.

The bitcoin subpoenas and Android security flaw don't appear to be affecting bitcoins USD or GBP rates too much.
Never thought reality had much to do with those anyways.

The rates of exchange plummeted on a previous occasion where bitcoin had bad press. I'm not sure reality exists…

I always desire more freedom, but I rarely stop to think what I'd do with it. When I do, I soon realise that I want the freedom to choose which draconian limitations I impose on myself.
