Just logged on to my bank to find out Virgin Media have taken £117 out of my account.

 

I have zero idea why, I was expecting more like £30 or at the most £60 with all the advance payment shit. This'll be a fun call tomorrow morning. I've just moved house, but nobody mentioned figures like these - it just says Virgin Media first payment.

 

I'm guessing they've forgotten the £50 credit, free install and half price bill that they fucking promised me. Actually, that makes sense - I'll bet they've charged me a full bill at ~£60 plus the £50 for V+ which should've been free. Lovely.

 

(I also forgot that my rent now goes out earlier, so imagine my heart attack when I saw the balance was £700 less than I expected!)

I love the idea of always knowing what your bank balance should be, but I've never managed it. I just try to spend less than I've earned, and hope I don't spend too much. Seems to work, so far. I look at my balance maybe once every 3 or 4 months, and I've always been in the black.

I try not to look at my balance too often. I don't like scary things (except Emily).

I scan read the link, found the bit where you think microwaves are awfully dangerous. The page you linked to was even more crazy.

 

You really are a loon :'D

Hertel explains, "Technically produced microwaves are based on the principle of alternating current. Atoms, molecules and cells hit by this hard electromagnetic radiation are forced to reverse polarity 1 to 100 billion times a second."

"There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts.
(...) This is how microwave cooking heat is generated - friction from this violence in water molecules. Structures of molecules are torn apart, molecules are forcefully deformed (called structural isomerism) and thus become impaired in quality."

So it`s the water molecules in foods that are directly agitated first to produce frictional heat. Journalist Tom Valentine played devil`s advocate by posing this question: "What about microwaves from the sun? Are they harmful?"

Again, it`s the AC current propelling microwave ovens that create an extremely rapid polar shift of the subjected water molecules. Hertel went on to explain that the sun`s microwaves are based on a pulsating direct current. This type of microwave radiation doesn`t shear molecules because there is no rapid oscillation of polarity.

Fucking hell. (fail)

 

Microwaves don't /have/ polarity. microwaves are microwaves, whatever the source. All they have is frequency and amplitude.

There is fuck all reputable about that site, m'dear.

 

I won't be mailing though, reminds me of BourqueFan, but with more pseudoscience.

 

And what the hell is a food technician?

No. What you eat is technically food. It's not the same thing at all.

after glancing at your tips the other day I did check my lava lamp and it is definatly too hot to keep your hand on, which isn't bad for a tiny bulb - not too sure about heating the house that way mind

Just read your tips, and whilst I understand why people might use things like that to save a bit of money is it really a good way to live? Do you really enjoy basically getting rid of all of lifes luxuries?

Unfortunately, they do, at least a continually oscillating one.

Fortunately, everything else he says is total bollocks.
