..when there's as many deer as there are on the road, you need ALL your lights on..

So it sounds like you're calling me a TW*T MD..

Pete! I'm horrified that you would think that. I am of course talking about the incredibly common Tw*ttus Urbanus, whose use of foglights in areas of ample street lighting is inexplicable.

..there are two types of deer up here. One is the type owned by the Duke of Westminster, that if  hit it, and put in your boot, is called POACHING. The other kind (also owned by the Duke) is the one that hit with your car, that writes your car off. That one is called WILD ANIMAL..

A poignant post, Pete. Last Sunday, driving up to Teesside on a dual carriageway. A pheasant walks into the road right in front of me. Big thud, feathers everywhere like a fog in front of the windscreen, ran over it.  G/f dozing in passenger seat went semi hysterical.

Should have had my big b*st*rd foglights on.  :))

Not being able to enjoy a good documentary about an interesting subject anymore without having to listen to some god awful background muzak. Every decent programme has resorted to this insidious, emotional background garbage, with pianos and vio bloody lins building up to some pointless dramatic crescendo every 30 seconds. $%^&*"!  *&%!?.

Today's annoyance for me is UK-badged sites like amazon.co.uk trying to bring Black Friday over here.

Since we don't have Thanksgiving, and it isn't a public holiday, it's a commerce-driven foreign infection!

Don't know what it is and don't want to know. They can bring over Cipollina weekend if they want though.
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense

My latest blood pressure raiser is the tendency for all home pages on the net to promote themselves as the top window on your monitor. I can't play crib or freecell whilst waiting for the site to load without it disappearing behind the browser window. I know I can resize or minimise but why the hell should I?  >:(
