Good possible answers. Don't forget to add your own question.
Here is another,
Why is it journos when doing pieces on the army never do proper research. ie. Get the name of the regiment/corps wrong or that recent times piece they called the young lad who died in Iraq a TA recruit etc etc
Okay......why is it that I'm not expected to wash my hands every time I rub (okay, pick) my nose, tug my ear, scratch my chin or hold my arm but I'm supposed to wash my hands every time I go wee wee?
Now I can understand to a point the need for degunging when my finger goes straight through the cut-price ar*e wipe that I've used to mop up my butt muck but not after holding my todger in my hand for a few seconds to empty my bladder of its 'sterile' contents.
The missus goes booloo if I don't wash my hands after a pi55 but she doesn't moan when I don't wash after manhandling the same appendage to empty my man fat over her chops.
