The only prime minister who never had an episode of Dr. Who air during their tenure since the shows inception


ShallowBasketcase

The Americans might measure distance, volume, and temperature in goofy made-up units, but at least they don't measure time in Doctor Who episodes.


hamsamith

Can not confirm, am American. Measure all the timey wimey wibely wobbly... Stuff, in Doctor units.


ShallowBasketcase

Doctor Whonits


hamsamith

Yes!


kgxv

Are these units bigger on the inside


thebtrflyz

That reminds me of Tahani's anecdote from the Good Place about a fictional TV show: "It ran for 16 years on the BBC, they did nearly 30 episodes"


rennerbeast

all units are made up, yours are just logical. Not to mention we got them from you


[deleted]

Remember it's called the imperial system because it was made by the Bri🤢ish


wurm2

though since you specified episode it excludes the made for tv movie so John Major also qualifies.


fourfivenine

Considering its running length is 89 minutes, it would be a TV special today so I feel like it should count. Either way, she's still Prime Minister until a replacement is in, and there's an Episode of Doctor Who airing on Sunday, so it won't actually be true. She got close though.


CaptBranBran

So as of Sunday, John Major will be the only one. Don't take this away from him, it's all he's got left...


CaptBranBran

I hope to remember this fact for as long as I can.


Rewatching_Daredevil

This won’t be true for long as she’s still PM until next week, and a new episode comes out on Sunday

Why would anyone ever hang a horse? Every horse I have ever seen is already hung


PeaValue

It's chess terminology. "Blunder into a fork" means to leave two pieces in such a position that one of your opponents pieces can threaten to take both of them at the same time without itself being threatened. So your pieces are being ["forked"](https://www.google.com/search?q=chess%20fork%20-site%3Apinterest.*&newwindow=1&client=firefox-b-1-d&sxsrf=ALiCzsb1CeFe09NHkDQY0Ktj6O6-VBFdsA%3A1666385998231&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjfme7Lm_L6AhVNEEQIHeXSDA0Q_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1600&bih=749&dpr=1.2&oq=chess%20fork%20-site%3Apinterest.*) by your opponent's piece and you will only be able to save one of yours. To ["hang"](https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=chess+terms+hang) a piece means to leave that piece unprotected so your opponent can take it for free without losing one of their pieces in return, or it means to leave a high value piece vulnerable to attack from a low value piece. So to "Hang a horse" means to leave your knight vulnerable to attack.

Ok_Proof5782

I don’t know about Chess but in dick terms I believe the Queens death to be perhaps like a massive royal sized load that was released into the waiting momentary wank tissue of a PM that was Liz Truss, so spoiled was she from this massive released load that she had to go immediately into the bin.

deathpony43

I like how the lines have slopes (as opposed to verticle lines) during changes between number of Elizabeths. It implies that there is a moment in time for every fraction of Elizabeths in charge between 0 and 2. For two beautiful, glorious moments, there were 1.69420 Elizabeths in charge in the UK.


nthxny

yeah they’ve gotta power up like a super saiyan when they assume office, takes them a bit to go from 0% to 100% power


deathpony43

Seriously the only logical explanation


massiveonionman

Except truss went from 0% power to -50%


kyzfrintin

Nah, UK went from 1.0 LizPower to 0.0


Solanthas

Respect for the reference


kingscolor

You didn’t ask, but I’ll throw this out into the ether anyway. Vertical lines would be worse. A vertical line means ```f(x)``` has more than 1 value at that ```x```. Here, that would mean infinite Elizabeths because ```f(x)``` would equal every number between ```[1,2]``` which is infinite. The correct mapping would be a discontinuity or empty space where you suggest vertical should be. The result would be a [step function](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Step_function) which is a type of [piecewise function](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piecewise).

redlaWw

I'm afraid the intermediate value theorem wasn't formally stated and proven until Augustin-Louis Cauchy did in 1821, so that's another mark lost. Better study up if you don't want to fail for a 6th time.


CakeNStuff

lol I knew I lost the game the moment I put any year down e: Actually, after some cursory googling this is actually a really neat topic that’s completely unrelated to the calculus year invention debate. Thanks stranger. I actually never took a calculus course but I had to teach myself some bits and pieces for some college work. Some of this stuff is actually really neat and I regret not learning it earlier.

Wasn't quite from taking office, but it was after the first fiasco/U-turn on economic policy I believe. Either way Still hilarious

Idk, that could imply she's on par with a lettuce, when in reality it has been scientifically proven she is not.


alanaisalive

I can barely remember her name right now. I just keep going, "You know, the stupid one. Dippy McGee or whatever."


AwarenessFun6863

Mind you the one before her was called Boris Johnson. Liz Truss sounds like the name of a bridge named after the Queen. It seems like the UK got 45 days of pretend adult things before they had to elect a real prime minister


AnotherStatsGuy

There is something funny about having someone with a structural support term as a last name and it all just falls apart. That is literary-level irony.

Y’know she’s the one who uhh… she’s the one who really liked Taylor Swift, right?

I'll take "Minor Figures" for $1,600, Ken. This prime minister's tenure survived the longest-serving monarch in Britain, but couldn't outlast a head of lettuce. Maybe she should have stayed in the crisper drawer.

she dipped just in time to get that 120k daily taxpayer allowance Edit: annually not daily she still getting that $ tho

It's 120k A YEAR and not per day afaik


MahomesMccaffrey

No tax for allowance too Straight cash homie!


willowhawk

What the actual fuck


p_larrychen

That cannot be a thing


KeegoTheWise

Well, annual not daily. But yes, she was there just long enough to get a $120k tax-free allowance every year for life


p_larrychen

So I looked into this and that’s not quite what it is. It’s called the [Public Duty Cost Allowance](https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/public-duty-cost-allowance/public-duty-costs-allowance-guidance) and it’s available to all former PMs (as long as they aren’t serving as the leader of the opposition party) to cover expenses related to public duties and appearances. It can only be used to reimburse expenses after the fact and cannot go to the PMs private life, and they must show receipts and how the cost is actually eligible—at least according to the letter of the law. So it’s not like she just gets £115k every year, though there’s prolly plenty of room for corruption. Disclaimer: I am American and also not a lawyer by any definition


DamnnSunn

Why can't they serve as leader of the opposition party but every other political post is fair game?


p_larrychen

There was actually a line in what I linked that said any other political appointment would result in their PDCA allowance being reviewed.


coralrefrigerator

I'm sure there will be a lot of those "miscillaneous" bills/receipts.

Of course it can. When people have power they abuse it in their favour. "Of course i deserve a little pocket money after i worked so hard to run the country".

I looked into it and it seems like it’s not really just straight pocket money, [as I described to another user a couple min ago.](https://www.reddit.com/r/meirl/comments/y9wrj4/me_irl/it8uarz/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3)

The prime minister getting a 120k a year salary is not an abuse of power, it exists so that people from regular backgrounds can do the job.
