I agree excluding the HTML, CSS and Javascript bit. Lots of great engineers out there that don't ever deal in this bit of software.

Funny that you mention American bacon as having a good meat content as I've only ever seen streaky bacon in the states, which tends to be very fatty. I wouldn't even know where to buy back bacon in the midwest.

I have two, US and IE. The US passport is only used at the US border (per law). Not many countries have a problem with the Irish.

I'm not a fan of unusual sizes and colours. That said, printing on a decent linen paper (on the correct side!) has helped me.

I chose to travel around Europe for a few months after school and then bothered looking for a job, so I guess by this metric I was unemployed. In the end I left Kansas for a job in London, a much better choice for me than being employed at graduation.

Is all the cameras in the UK effective in any way? I mean, to know that the criminal wore a black hoodie and black pants at the time of the crime doesn't give more information than maybe sex, hoodie, pants and maybe a rough estimation of age.
