  1. What we really need to know is .... What would Jesus have done?
  2. Blame the Police and the Attorney Generals office - they knew the evidence and presumably the strength of it and still decided to prosecute. The whole prosecution was probably only a device to hold him while they sorted out the legality of getting him back to Germany.
  3. Donkeys in hats? Pah! Space dogs in wellies for the win....
  4. Two in one day - I have a 20" Samsung Syncmaster 913N - hardly used
  5. I have a Samsung Syncmaster 913N available. 20" - £25 - hardly used.
  6. Is it fecetious or facetious? - not being pedaltic, just cureuiouius
  7. Servicing a car? Bit of an alien concept, but just about possible.... Taking a car on the boat and then to Crewe for a service? This is not a world I inhabit.
  8. Just ask them if they were in the UK would they be a Labour or Conservative supporter. They find that very hard to answer because they know there will be a 50% chance that they may upset you. Watch them waffle and try to avoid answering. Make them answer. Don't let them get away with Liberal/Middle ground either. Make them give you a straight Left or Right. Watch their eyes start to glaze and wobble, their brains start to fizzle.
  9. You never see green washing up bowls any more these days, do you?
  10. You need to explore the possibility of the \gSub texture being more fluid than 30c if the contact is not isolated by either a heavy metal strip or an oil based plastic. The framing needs to be checked as well. Check that the vga valency is supported by the motherboard and that you really do have HDMI and not the older version. And if you measure your temperatures using fahrenheit, rather than centigrade, you will find the fan rate will be reduced. Hope that helps.
  11. Just wondered if anyone had any views on Speed limts, or maybe Smoking?
  12. I had a chat with Champion The Wonder Horse in Heaven in early 1972. He said he did not miss Rebel at all. We also had a chat about the Boy - we couldn't remember his name, and Google hadn't been invented then. So we called him The Boy Who Champion Rescued From A Disused Mineshaft Every Week. He didn't miss him either. And Champion didn't seem too happy in Heaven. It's not really designed for horses. When Frankie Laine died, he would upset Champion, but belting out "Championnnnnn, the Wonder Horseeeeeee! And Champion would automatically pavlova like go into Magnificent Rearing, And of course as his front hooves landed, his weight took him through the cloud. Champion is used to being Magnificent, not clumsily Plummeting Through Clouds. He felt humiliated.

    150 Mph Naked

    I used to ride my bike naked - except for a ground length seal fur coat - I used to ride full pelt....
  16. Go to Snaefell on Google Earth, and you will see a couple more paragliders. They have been hanging there now for nearly three years. Will they ever land? Are they missing their family? Do they yearn for the embrace of the soil?
  17. Barcelona - missed the first 20 minutes, but in the rest of the game I saw them pass the ball longer than 5 yards on only two occasions, and nothing longer than 15 yards. Also, the ball never left the ground, except once. Always on the deck to feet a few yards away. On the few occasions United had the ball, they pumped long balls forward, they pumped high balls forward, and nearly always lost possession again. To keep playing 5 yard triangles at that intensity, you need players to work hard to always be in the right place to support, and you need a high level of technique - including in particular instant ball control. The only player United had who had those skills, Berbatov, was not even on the bench. The English game, despite the number of foreign players, is way behind, and the England team will NEVER come close to winning anything - until coaching and technique change radically. And it looked so simple. No hustle, bustle, rush or 90 mph headlessness. Headlessness - a new word for you all.
  18. It was 1952 - here is a bit more which may show how famous he was in those days.... http://www.factualtv.com/documentary/Champions-Geoff-Duke
  19. The most famous Isle of Man resident is Geoff Duke - certainly to a couple of generations. In about 1954 he was Sportsman of the Year - the premier sporting accolade of the day - when the Senior TT was up there with the Cup Final, Wimbledon, Grand National, the Lords Test and the Boat Race. He was as well known as Stirling Moss (or Nigel Mansell/Lewis Hamilton in more recent times) Here's a film I made of him at the time... http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=29506
  20. It's only The Rapture today, where Jesus comes round to have a word with you to let you know if you have been chosen or not. The actual end of the world is 21st October. They tried to have a Rapture when I was God in the seventies, but I got too busy sorting out the aftermath of decimalisation and setting up some minor summer droughts in Derbyshire, so I forgot to give out The Order. Jesus and Ian Paisley were totally pissed off with me, and I lost the job not long after. Though it was probably because I let Alvin Stardust get to number one that really did it. Jesus likes it when God puts off The Rapture, he's not too fussed about coming back down again, after what happened to him last time.....
  21. And of course, when the local Constabulary interpret what was said, including 'wish" and fail to find any legal reason to take action, Mr. Murphy will have further ammunition along the lines of "Manx Police in cover-up of terrorism threat" "Manx Police lackies of Government" etc.
  22. The cow is sad because nobody wants to throw anything at her. She has gone quietly into the corner of the field to be on her own. A crow is watching her.
  23. I've thrown a Cauliflower at a Swan - because they are God's Greatest Two Creatures. They are in the Bible. Probably.
  24. I watched that spire fall in seconds, after one blow, one spring evening at 6.30pm, many years ago....
