    So were you easily parted from your money?

    More fool you.


    Theft happens in every town and city in the UK.

    I still remember the story of a guy who stole a suitcase of a train going up North. It had a bomb in it....

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Although give Jimmy Carr a miss. Went to see him a few months ago. His material is becoming too reliant on insult. Used to be well funny.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. 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.”
