    Point 1 - I'm not a Yorkshireman - Unlike my Sister-in-law I live north of the Tees.
    Point 2 - Prior to making the offer I had checked that none of them was in a position to take me up on the offer...
    Point 3 - the time specified is to ensure the offer couldn't be gamed by making other attendees mods.


    The plan wasn't to create an offer that required a financial contribution - it was to create an offer that looked good but couldn't be acted upon..

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.”
