I'll defend the British Music Industry.
"voice of Take That, or a boyband – the best thing Britain ever gave to us"
I'm not going to cite a long list of great British songwriters, singers, artists but compared to EuroTrash, we're
miles ahead and even compete pretty well with countries 5x our population.
Keep bringing in the foreign $. One of our more successful exports. PP
@diver_dave. Diving, relatively safe if properly trained and diving within your abilities.
Diving with dodgy kit (and believing it) quite dangerous.
Cave diving with dodgy kit, probably fatal.
I'm sure you know what you're doing Dave, I was only trained for leisure diving and never anywhere you can't see the surface. PP

..agreed no hi-viz so it doesn't surprise me that those numpties don't know they should be walking on the side of oncoming traffic. You should never have to creep up behind them and overtake. In an electric car they may never hear you and step out right in front to avoid the horse dung recently dropped by the animal being escorted by the little girl from the stables up the road. Not from personal experience much....PP
I was always told that statistically, you're more likely to have an accident closer to home or somewhere you are familiar with. Certainly works for the 2 accidents I've had and most of the near misses in 40 odd years driving UK and Europe. Definitely works if you've been a long way from home and drive tired. Familiarity breeds carelessness. PP
At one time we had an internal sales team where only 1 spoke only English. The others were French, Russian and Spanish.
We had a customer who's since become a great friend. He liked to call the new Russian Internal sales lady to contact his sales account manager and announce himself as Ivor Biggin or Chris Peacock. Caused great hoots from the native English speakers when she announced him across the office and accelerated her English language education. PP :) Win, win.
I was taught back in DOS days that my data should be at least 2-3 folders below root and ideally not the dumbed down My??? stuff MS introduced.
So now my stuff is in C:\MyStuff\various logical folder names below, like a filing cabinet.
I think I had a couple of machines that were partioned, OS and Apps on C: default data storage folders on D:
Not perfect in a disk crash situation but that's rare IMHO and not an issue if you do that other thing that was drilled in, back in the day. BACKUP. PP
Given that Eltons last revisit of that song brought him his 1st (and only?) SOLO UK #1 Single I'd recommend he gives it a go.
I'm a big EJ fan and can't understand why so many great songs missed the UK #1 singles slot for so long. PP

I only got the Urban joke due to some of the stuff in these hallowed pages. Ignorance is the failure of an individual to take the opportunities offered to be educated. Thank you commentariat. :) PP
