Do the LEDs run off the mains with a plug?

Big batteries but that it might overboard. Depending on the setup you might be able to use DC output.

Took off at Gatwick on an hour and a half delayed flight, to spend almost 3 hours in the air, only to return back to Gatwick due to one of the engines failing.

Royally pissed off, the airline are going to try and arrange something and we are still waiting to hear back. I have travel insurance, but what am I entitled to as basic at the moment?

Cheers Rick, checked on Virgins website and filled in an EU compensation form. According to them, we’re entitled to €600 each which would be a result!
Advice was given to me by Virgin staff Laughing out loud

Engagement rings. I haven't got the first clue on diamonds (lab Vs real). Ideally don't want to spend shit loads. What does shit loads mean? Not sure, a ring for 1-2k?

No recommendation to buy but I suggest making your own oil.
I make wax / THC concentrate (as concentrate for my e cig) and oil (for pulling joints through) by myself.
It‘s not a difficult thing to do if you have a good weed supply or grow by yourself.
Basically you mix pure alcohol and ground up weed (both frozen overnight), pour it through a coffee filter and cook out the alcohol where the resin is now dissolved in.
First batch is wax / shatter / concentrate, second batch is oil.

Can't vouch for the efficacy of their products as I have never used myself but a guy I know and trust works for them.

I use these for the drops

https://canabidol.com/cannabis-oil-drops/

I would always recommend getting the raw ones. I have the 500mg for daily use. If I am injured or ill I get the 1000mg.

and get CBD flowers from here

Depends what you want really! As with most things, you find that your budget doesn't quite get what you want!

I went for a real diamond, felt like I couldn't get a "fake" one. Just pick the best you can for your budget

Updated my phone and went for the S9. But holy shit does it drain the battery overnight. Last night it went from 57% to 0 in just 7 hours - 11pm 6am. Always on display is turned off, as is Bixby.

Anyone had the same and found a fix? All forums are suggesting the stuff I've already done.

This is just faulty, my S9 is totally fine. Battery is not the best ever, but it doesn't drain idling. Get it replaced.
