    That's impressively daft. To use an old and worn out expression you couldn't have made that up, I checked the date it's the 1st of May not April.

    Love it. Don't forget life's just a ride, just a dream, it's the journey not the destination that matters.

    Take tulip like this too serious and you'll turn into a bitter old git as you wonder about the stupidity of the human race. It's a burden being intelligent, or awake as a friend puts it.

    Windfarms seem to be a bit of protection racket, if you build one big enough you can threaten to disrupt the national grid unless they pay you.
    I'm alright Jack

    Al Capone would love that.

    I bet a lot of the computer industry would too.
