Women have been getting fucked by the patriarchy for years, along with the recent #MeToo movement, Sex Predators like Weinstein and Trump and a huge spotlight on women's rights issues, that's why its being highlighted.

Also didn't Chartism end in 1857 - a full 51 years before the 1918 Reform Act?

The aims of Chartism were only (predominantly) achieved by the 1918 Act

I understand the importance of the Women's Suffrage movement, and the parallels with recent events, but I'm also disappointed that the reporting is often somewhat overlooking certain background facts.

The guy who makes my sandwich finds a new way to Fuk it up everyday. It’s actually quite astonishing. Today he managed to literally cook half of it while the other half was cold.

I love the days when he’s not here

My paranoia makes me think maybe he doesn’t like me, but when you look at him and the way he holds himself it’s like oh no I get it, your that cunt that think she your super fly despite the fact you can’t even warm up a sandwich properly

I need to learn how’s you make my own lunches

Working class householders in the cities received the vote in 1867. Those in the countryside did so in 1884. Finally, non-householders — people living with their parents, or in the homes of their employers (such as servants), or in barracks (soldiers, etc), or who were homeless — got the vote in 1918.
Under the rules until 1918 people in your circumstance wouldn't have been able to vote. It's mad to think that that was only 100 years ago.

I'd imagine so, but no idea whether you'll be able to open it or read it.

Is there an iOS version of Open Office or something similar ?

Every day. Every day this guy finds even newer and more interesting ways to fuk up my sandwich. He isn’t even making it, he just has to pop it in a toaster and cut it in half

I should nominate him for Britain’s got talent or something. It’s really quite exceptional

Also, looking for new jobs is v v hard. They either look exactly like what I’m already doing or are completely different and I can’t see any similarities at all

Whilst its football related my question is more physics/maths based, so perhaps stick with it.

In yesterdays Huddersfield vs Man Utd game the VAR (video assisted referee) gave an offside decision against Utd based on the following evidence:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43100490

My question is, why don't the graphics (blue & yellow) lines sit parallel to the pitch marking penalty box line, or even the mowed lines on the pitch ? Surely if the graphics are 'corrected for perspective' they should run the same as the pitch markings ?

Update - seems like they've owned up to messing up on the graphics, but assured us that VAR is fine and an image with a projected line parallel to the penalty box shows the player clearly offside by a fraction of miilimeters.
