    Cojak and Mr own it.

    I had an Astra as a replacement hire car - I don't like them. I prefer the tulipty 1 litres I normally hire.

    It's long overdue - these polluting tiny diesel engines must be taken off the road to make more space for my 5.5L V8 petrol

    Oooo touchy.

    I was kidding, though clearly the joke is lost when we're not face to face.

    Am also in a similar position to you BTW.

    Indeed

    So a person drives car x and they are therefore an underachiever

    And person drives car y and therefore they are an over achiever

    But if you then look the person driving car x has plenty of money and a stable life

    The person driving car y struggles to make at ends meet each month and is consistently worrying about money.

    Who is going to be the better person to bring onboard?

    Right enough, you only need stand at a bus stop and you'll have lung cancer within the hour.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
