Call me picky but something tells me that the public would prefer the more secure bars across the window approach as opposed to 'reinforced glass' made by the lowest competing bidder...   Banghead

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

‘These windows are difficult to break, making them more effective in stopping prisoners from accessing contraband.’

I'd prefer 'impossible' in this situation....  noooo:

If they want to have reinforced glass windows then fine, on the condition that the prison in question is converted from an old oil rig and is 100 miles out in the Atlantic.

It's an idea I had a while ago: take 9 old oil rigs and connect them in a 3x3 grid with secure covered walkways within a rigid frame to securely hold all 9 in place with the centre one turned into a communal open area and one used as the entrance/prisoner and delivery processing/guard and staff accommodation. Build the rest up into prison blocks and once moored so far out into the Atlantic that escape becomes suicidal and hey presto, secure prison.

Too many jokes...  noooo:

noooo: noooo:

That's for how much I believe the story

True, I'm more inclined to think that she broke it and is trying to pull a fast one but either way you know that Apey would have a string of jokes ready...  lol:

The police advising people not to lie on top of WWII bombs? Surely common sense would dictate that you call the police and get the hell away from it. Sounds like a future client of Mr Darwin sir...  noooo:

Klaassen added: 'The EOD team must have come some distance, as they arrived around 1am to free the man from his delicate position.

'It is strictly ill-advised to lie down on a bomb.

'The best thing to if you come across an explosive device is keep your distance and call the police.'
