Re: Kevin's future...

Man Plus ? I don't remember the title, but I do remember reading a book of that nature... They had to incorporate a computer into the guy's brain, to be able to process the input from the bug-like eyes they had designed for him (the previous guinea pig, err, guy, lacking the help of such a computer...

A Land Rover dodging wildlife on snow-covered trees? That seems as if it would be a job better suited to the Weasleys' flying Ford Anglia, with a good set of snow tires added.
Remember who you are speaking to here, my good man...

Re: Was the Site Down, Tuesday Eve? (11Nov2018)

And by wheel-breakers, I mean “they’ll rip yer god damned wheel off if you hit them too fast.” Welcome to New England. When the plows do their thing every year we end up with potholes that will swallow a Volkswagen (and good riddance to them). There's a reason i drive a Land-Rover - the roads nearl...

What's the probability that her book caught at least one button?

That, or it's hiding the fact that she isn't wearing a bra.

Re: More Stuff

Catawampus, mate - the best place to shop for a quality bottle jack for lifting cars is in the SUV section of your local scrapyard. Personally, I have screw jacks in my antiques (looks like a bottle jack but works off a bevel drive and a screw). SUVs have the most annoying lifting requirements, and ...

I NEVER go to movies - can;t settle down and enjoy a film in a crowd. Too situationally aware and I can't turn it off.

This...this I will go to see, and likely buy when it hits Blu-Ray.
