    My first rule of password generating and storage methods is don't tell anyone about my password generating and storage methods.

    My Aunt wanted a robot because her neighbour had a Kenwood mixer. So my Uncle made her this.

    It was around the time the 9-year-old boy next door went missing.

    I'd love to be a TV detective. They always drive classic cars, it is a rule in the police force.
    I'd be a detective on Lundy Island, and drive a 5-wheel Rice-Mogg Pentacar, and solve crimes involving stolen puffin eggs.

    White Mk2 Jags featured in a lot of 1960's/70's films and TV programmes, and became increasingly rare in the 1970s due to their propensity to drive off cliffs.
    To the point where if you saw a white Mk2 Jag in a film, you just knew it was going to drive off a cliff.

    Edit: I think they even manage to slip in a Wilhelm Scream at 1:25. Stock footage and foley Nirvana.

    I can be, but my alcoholism and clinical depression have made me weak.
    Right now, 21 days and 3 and 3/4s of an hour after my last drink, I'm slowly getting my powers of reason back.
    And quite frankly, when viewed in a sober manner, this forum is very depressing.
    I'm off out for an hour on my push-bike to cheer myself up.
    Why not start yet another bike thread for me to enjoy when I get back...?

    Go on then, you rescue it and start some topics. Do you really think I want to be scouring the legacy media to use as thread starters?  Just doing my bit to keep the forum going.

    Happy Renting reacted to SNACR in Where Am I?   
    I was on the way back from Torquay and took the scenic coastal route - although the bit I'm down didn't go anywhere I went down there looking for a pub still doing food. 
    Even the cat's looking at it with disgust.

    Being a Leyland car, I can't be sure if the boot is open, or if it is just the panel fit.

    Happy Renting got a reaction from M.C. UK in Whats the best or most unusual thing you have bought on Ebay   
    I buy IPA in 5L containers.

    It seems to be a DOSBODs thing.
    I got this on eBay a few days ago, for amusement.

    Edmonds used have a Saturday evening show, 'The Late Late Breakfast Show' where members of the public where challenged to undertake a dare selected from a 'Whirly wheel', a sort of spin-the-dial device to select the challenge.
    The dares were various stunts, that if inexpertly done, could be fatal, but should be safe under expert supervision.
    One week's stunt was bungee-jumping from an exploding box suspended from a crane, Houdini-style.
    The unsuspecting member of the public plunged to his death during rehearsals.
    At the inquest it was revealed that the supervisor of the stunt was completely out of his depth and BBC's health and safety precautions were minimal.
    TV people regard the general public as fodder. You usually only get on TV if you are prepared to do something dangerous or humiliating, although some talent shows do actually encourage talented performers; they used to be freak shows too.

    Seeing as they were designed as a short-term stop-gap until BR's tilting trains came into service, the 125 was pretty successful.
