    To honour the national silence on Armistice Day, the tMP Forums will be shut down for two minutes.

    And I thought a 'silence' was the same in every language. ;)

    Bl00dy disgusted at work, very few stopped for the 2 miniuets silence. i think it was just 6 out of a total of 42 employees, in fact 2 people were told to shut the ****up as they were laughing and joking. absolutely shocked!
  7. I did it at home all by myself lol

  9. Someone? obviously.... lol

    we had one in school, however alot of people in the common room didnt know that when the bell went it was for a 2min silence, so carried on chatting, until 1 teacher pointed out to them it was the 2min silence. then the whole of the common room was deadly silent!

    Eh? Sorry Im thick and its friday afternoon...


    Mine too! I think people have so little respect for it nowadays and yet they were all content to be silent for two minutes for the psunami victims and the london bombing victims, what's so different about being silent for the war dead? Makes me MAD :mad:

    We always observe silences at my place of work. Generally, I think this is a good thing, and observing the silence on November 11th is definitely a good thing.

    My group at college observed a two minutes silence :D we were doing group presentations on various educationalists at the time and we stopped halfway through a riviting slide show of fredrich froebel! We had planned to stop though whatever was happening at 11 oclock :D

    We did the 2 minutes at work, all except one lady who kept typing away for the first 3/4 minute before she finally felt the daggers being launched her way and gave up.

    2 mins Fi? Bet that was EASY PEASY after last week! ;)

    Our place always recognises the 2 minutes silence, it also collects money for Poppies in the reception.

    Beautifully observed two minute silence at work today. We had one last week too as one of our employees lost his fight with cancer.
