    2nd hand prices seem to be holding up, not many people trading in and dealers are keeping stocks low and selling at a premium rather than going for volume sales.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    The day that a motorist does not care about his XX12 number plate is the day he grows up.
