    Hey, now I’ll have to find new ways to fall off my bike!

    James Dyson tried to re-invent the wheelbarrow in the 70s using a ball instead of a wheel -

    ….worse than useless, you couldn’t steer it; can’t see how this bike will be any better.

    Any video of one in motion?

    But Dyson used it successfully in the Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner so it did work, JD.

    Not sure why it didn’t work for the wheel barrow, though guessing it’s the shape of the barrow and the fact that it’s horizontal. Maybe someone should invent a vertical ‘ball’ barrow!

    Seeing as I can’t comment on the relevant post I’ll do it here. I didn’t write anything weird. You just didn’t like it. And it’s for others to judge whether your response was acerbic but they can’t do that because you have censored again.

    My very much better and kinder half was amused enough by our recent altercations to consider offering you a job here in Australia. He thought you needed ‘a break.’ He has finally seen the error of his ways.

    I’m gone from the comments section. This time for good.

    Never let it be said that I don’t publish you, Suzie. And it’s lovely you have that attitude to your other half. Unusual for a feminist. Maybe you’re not really one after all.
