Nigh on unbelievable now, but these actually existed.

When radium was first discovered it seemed so mysterious and exciting that it must somehow be good for you - it was crow-barred into an array of means of ingestion, including fags. Radium Cigarettes - Jesus.

Surely nothing contemporary will be quite so tragically laughable in the future.

The Rules

I like to ride both Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes. When asked which I prefer the answer is "They are different, but I can't really choose - I would miss either if I were to stop"

To explain the differences, here are the 64 Road Bike Rules and the 2 Mountain Bike Rules.

Good luck with that

I can see for miles and miles and miles

Loyalty schemes, particularly airmiles, bug me.

Non-remittance, which is to say people who are too dim or lazy to chase up the rewards, are part of the careful corporate calculations.

Thus I end up paying a bit more for fares, indirectly subsidising hardworking intelligent people.

It is with delight that I note that loyalty schemes are slowly being watered down. I guess this is because the hoi polloi are becoming more determined to remit their claims.

Thank you all, keep up the good work.

Never marry an Italian ...

... the spare parts are too expensive.

(£60 to fix a blown light in #60 - harumph, grumble)


... yet we continue to conspire in the myth that wine and our copy-and-pasted-from-the-newspapers opinions about it matter.
