Agreed, Keith, and if we ever get out from under the influence or Europe, we can apply the proper penalties for treason at the tower. If you have ever been to Traitors' Gate there, you will have seen the post that they tie traitors to, awaiting the arrival of high tide - whereupon they slowly drown! :y 8)

Nick, my mechanical colleagues at college despaired of teaching me how to read the vernier on a simple micrometer, so I regard the digital readout as the greatest boon.
I used to tease them when asking to borrow their digital caliper by asking for the adjustable spanner - the one that could also tell the time!  ::)

I already have one, but at that price I ordered 4 from ebay as I can wait and they are useful for presents!
Like others on here, the eyes ain't what they used to be, so I love the digital readout and can't understand the vernier scales anyway on the mechanical calipers.  :y

Sad fact of life is we Brits are very critical of our own countrymen. Strange and fairly unique trait.

"I support Scotland and anyone who's playing against England" -Andy Murray

No countryman of mine.  ::)



In rugby (and everything else for that matter) the Welsh, Scots, and Irish all have one thing in common. They all want England to lose! In local pub everyone supports whoever is playing against England   ::) but in a nice way (Hmmm well nice-ish)
If I were Irish, Scottish or Welsh, I would hate the English too.


........and of course the scousers hate the cockneys.

Well, that's only fair, because.....

I don't know if it applied to your schooldays, Kevin, but Latin was an entry requirement for Universities in my time, so I took the subject. I didn't get into University, but iot allowed me the occasional "showing off" of my meagre knowledge of Latin! 8)

Nick, Kevin - I have similar stories, starting way back when I was first to play football at primary school. Like Nick, nobody explained the rules to me and I had never watched a football game (no telly at home), so when they made m,e centre forward, I simply kicked the ball forwards, obviously?
After being ridiculed and bashed, they told me that I should have passed the ball to the player adjacent to me.
Now, my thoughts were that if they wanted him to have the ball, WTF didn't they let him have it in the first place?
Stupid game, which I dicovered later was played by stupid. overpaid morons! >:(

An old story, not sure if it's true or not......
Man phoning police - "There is a burglar on my premises"
Police - "Sorry sir, we don't have anyone available for several hours"
Man - "I caught him and think I've killed him"
Minutes later, a police car arrives at his house.
Man to police - "I thought you didn't have anyone available?"
Police - "We came to arrest you, not the burglar!"

"The police could arrive in minutes" - flying pigs?
