    5. There are many good reasons to visit Austria (not least being able to enjoy an after dinner cigar at the table) but i’m not sure the ride-along James Bond Adventure Playground is one of them.

    Forgetting the fact that JB is quintessentially British (or rather scots ?) , the thing that made the greatest impression on me, growing up in the 70s/80s before RyanAir, was the ‘magic of the foreign’- of trams travelling down cobbled streets, of exotic foreign women who smoked with such elegance that even as a closeted child I knew it was something erotic; the gambling in French, life behind the Iron Curtain. To a boy living in northest Norfolk and who at the age of 11 was the only child in his class to have ever visited London, it was a heady mix.

    I have just rewatched all the CD Bond films (except CR because I can’t find a pirate copy) and sometimes, very occasionally, the old magic comes through. Today’s kids are used to the ‘foreign’ being next door and bikini clad women emerging from the surf would just offend.

    I’m rambling,losing the thread,I know.

    2. Is it me or have the worldwide political actors been taken off their meds?
    4. He must pop it at some point. As must Queenie & The Duck.
    5. Bloody autoplay videos!

    “Coal to hydrogen eh?” Radical! Also, Victorian!

    I liked the yoghurt link, especially the penetrating question “Why is hummus controversial?” The answer must presumably be that Sainsbury’s spell it houmous.

    P.S Why does nobody spell gajik ‘gajik’ any more?

    These and others set to challenge mankind in perpetuity.
