It's a girls car anyway, Merc sports.

Obviously, you can tell him that, rather than me.

I always thought he was lucky his surname wasn't Wittler - the ring nickname would have been harder to come up with.

I just bought a penknife for the first time since the Eighties. Always useful around the house, especially for dealing with impenetrable packaging. It's a Laguiole-style shape, with a Damascus blade. It looks a bit like this one:

Posh git. The rest of us have Stanley-types. Mine are in designer black and red. Though I also have a couple of blue ones and an old-school grey one. Well, you have to have one that goes with your overalls.

;)

 

 I also have a six-inch  kitchen knife in my toolkit. It's surprising how often it comes handy.

It was heavily-discounted, as was my chef's knife, which was an end-of-line clearance sale - down from around £40 to under a tenner. You've got to like numbers like that!

I've been to the Lagouile factory, designed by Phillipe Starck, the roof of which has a Lagouile knife blade jutting out of it.

My blood test results came back.  My total cholesterol reading was 3.5, HDL 1.7, LDL 1.6.  Not too bad for a fat knacker with a tendency to eat too much unhealthy food.

No :(  Unless they can say for sure they can fix anything that comes out of the test then I'll avoid it...

I am off to my best mate's wedding tomorrow. He's made the poor girl wait more than 10 years but finally asked the question last year. Should be a good day.

I'm at a union game in East London today. The clubhouse meal finished with a rousing rendition of Jerusalem by the be-blazered clubmen. Some places...

Do they pay you to go to places like that? If not, why do you go? :tongue:

Enzo Ferrari, died August 1988; Mezut Ozil, born October 1988. Coincidence?

Look at the size of that steering wheel ... enormous torque needed to turn the racing wheels without power-assisted steering.

 

Proper racing.

Proper racing.

And that would be with skinny tyres.

Was the person who proof-read Hitler's speeches the first grammar Nazi?

I suspect not.

 

Hitler only surrounded himself with comprehensive Nazis.
