I fly a lot and I have seen some things where I thought... what a moron / idiot / dumb / whatever adjective you want to add to the list.
In one flight, there was a situation... the end could be seen in advanced, when it eventually happened and the guy started shouting to the stewardess... I (and three other people) could not stay quiet: She is not responsible for your idiocy, so STFU and let her do her job / leave her alone.
The moron still complained a bit more and then closed his mouth. If company was sued or not... I don't know.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about? Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Having used Google to endrun around the paywall to the original article my opinion on this 180ed. The Daily Fail's clickbait implied the kid lost at big chunk if not all of his finger. The original article showed an unbandaged picture of the kids finger. From that, despite the families claim, it doesn't appear that he actually lost anything permanently at all. The cut went through his nail and doctors were forced to remove the half of it closest to the finger tip, but the finger tip ahead of where the nail was severed appears the normal size. Having had an ingrown nail removed once I know the kid isn't going to have an enjoyable month or two while it grows back; but there's nothing to indicate that there's any sort of real permanent injury.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

I don't have a feel for PC prices in the UK, but I had a look at their Intel based machines. I am convinced you could get a Dell or HP in the US with comparable performance at a considerably lower price.
Unless you need something heavily customized, I don't see that they are such great bargains.
In Israel, you can get an i7-6700 based system with 16GB RAM, a 2TB HDD, and a DVD burner from Dell for less than UKP 1,000 (including Win10 Pro). I can't imagine that computers are that much more expensive in the UK.
EDIT: should have answered the OP
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
