    Didn’t realise that Alan partridge was presenting that long ago.

    Renault 16. I went in one in the late 1960s. So futuristic to me I thought it was a spaceship.

    Bedrag Justesen reacted to DTMark in Douglas Murray - The Madness of Crowds   
    The Madness of Crowds (Amazon link)

    Thought I'd get in first with this one.
    Douglas Murray is one of the finest commentators of our time. He writes lucidly and with frank honesty. It is captivating and addicting.
    'Douglas Murray fights the good fight for freedom of speech ... A truthful look at today's most divisive issues' – Jordan B. Peterson
    I have the audiobook narrated by the man himself. Only on chapter 4 so far, but it's just outstanding.
    The first section is "gay" and - must admit I'm a bit torn here in that this is not a position I especially wish to speak from but I do so when it is relevant, which, here it is - he speaks for me. It is so incisive that it has me laughing out loud at times.
    Taking a fly-by of some of the comments that come up in relation to these things, listen and the answers are there. Answers for everyone.
    Titania McGrath's review is here, and it's just as hilarious. For those keeping up at the back "she" is the alter-ago of Andrew Doyle who is another gay commentator and utterly hilarious, parodying the social justice warrior to perfection.
    Both his play featuring Titania - and Murray's book - have received poor receptions at The Guardian which should be the signal for everyone of sound mind to dive in.
    Listen and have the madness of the social justice warriors' world and its societally cancerous effects explained to you in detail. Giggle to yourself as he makes sense of the world.
    Post your reviews when you've read/listened..

    Having watched the BBCs coverage of twuntberg and how 4 million kids are going to march on friday about something to which they have little knowledge and life experience to make an educated decision on then I have come to the conclusion that the world is run by the big media companies and how they portray it.
    Orange man bad, President of Brazil bad, anyone else who doesn't turn up at the UN bad.

    I've just got into Detectorists. Tried before but found it too slow, but I realise now that's part of its appeal. Gentle and quaint rather than brash and shouty, and the scenery in Suffolk is pretty special. Its currently on bbc four.

    It's come up a few times that these old prestige cars are cheap for a reason: their parts are beginning to wear out and their replacements are very pricey.  As well illustrated by that Car Throttle old S Class: £1k to buy, £10k to fix.
    The better way is maybe buying an old top of the range Mondeo or similar so you have all the power without the eye-watering repair bills.

    Octavia VRS alongside the Impreza WRX is probably the ultimate drive like a tosser car. Go for it. 
    The number of times people with those cars tried to race me when I had an M3 I lost count of.  They don't try so often in my current car which is a shame it's now just idiots in A3s or Q5s.
    Stokie an old e46 M3 should be on your list. or even the e92 with a v8. Probably my favourite car, but they're not as cheap as I thought they'd be.

    Only one half decent spot this weekend, and I can't be arsed to post it yet.
    So I thought I'd post this piece of old-car porn instead. I've jizzed twice watching it. Nice to see cyclists were just as keen to get themselves killed in 1977 as they are today...
     
     
    Thames TVs YouTube page has some other marvellous archive stuff on it, highly recommended for nostalgia fans...

    Related to Brexit..  if the Supreme Court decide to over-rule the government this week,  does that mean they are now running the country, in which case,  should we be having a public election every 4 years to select who runs the Supreme Court instead of who runs parliament?

    Bedrag Justesen reacted to whocares in Thomas Cooked   
    Well my BMI is around 19 I think, so yes I suppose I am thin.
    More so on my top half than my bottom half tho - and the top half is where some fat would be quite useful to protect my internal organs?!
    No jokes about the benefits of having big tits please!  (I am very happy with my adequate ones which breastfed my 3 offspring and are much easier to carry around on a daily basis than those enormous ones some women like to achieve via surgery!)  
    Weirdly, I think I am exactly the same weight/shape as I was aged 18 ... but I didn't consider myself to be slim back then and I certainly didn't consider my body to be the type men were typically attracted to.  (Tho I did OK I suppose!) 
    Now I am "old" (over 60) I reckon that ppl would say I am slim  ... as I am quite tall and I don't have "a belly".  So the goal posts have been moved ...or it's just that most ppl get fatter with age and staying slim is much rarer?
    I certainly think I have moved up the "attractive" ranks, just by staying the same from 6th form days. (If i could reassemble my female class mates and then get the males to re-rate us.) As some who were knock out lovely back then will have gone to seed by now? (Revenge is sweet! )
    I never got those (promised) hot flushes either (going thru menopause) which I had imagined all women get.   Was asked at a medical check up by a women doc if I had ever had hot flushes. I paused to think hard if I had felt a bit warmer ever and she stopped me saying "if you are not sure you can't have had any!"   (It seems they are not that nice - so I would have noticed!)
    Might have come in useful in winter, but I can get thru winter very nicely now after investing in enough thermal sportswear/underwear to have 2-3 layers on daily!   (Base layers make all the difference!)

    If you can make it to the sea front and nick a pedalo it should only take you 6 months.
    Alternatively you might get lucky and be picked up by those charities helping migrants across the Med.

    So Thomas Cook is near collapse but what I’m more shocked at is that people are still holidaying in Tunisia. 
    I went years ago and would never have gone back even after the first terrorist attack in the museum. WTF people would go there now is beyond me. 
    Apparently holiday makers are now being held hostage in their hotels and being asked to pay.

    Locally we have an enclave of South Asians.
    If you can imagine Brookside Close populated by Indian doctors, surgeons, lawyers and restaurant owners, all with gold coloured Mercedes E-Class, blue or black S-Class and silver MLs, all rusting worse than a 1930s tugboat.
    One S-Class, made in India, brought back from India, is covered in rust bubbles and blisters resembling Peter Gabriel's mask as the Slipperman.
