Interesting Tuesday topics [1]

What we have here, readers, is an interesting phenomenon – when you have it set up so that interesting things come through, then interesting things do come through, our main source Chuckles and haiku but others too – result is overload, in the sense of having to prioritise and edit.

Sometimes a series of posts can be made, sometimes a post, sometimes half a post, sometimes one section in a post, sometimes a url. This morning, some very interesting ones have raised their heads, so best get them to you over the next few hours.

Now, methinks Tom should take that one up, I asked – didn’t Cruise do most of his own stunts?  He should take Bieber.

    The present generation don’t need to be able to start a lawnmower – they will simply buy (on credit, no doubt) an absurdly over priced battery electric job…

    I remember the ancient Atco cylinder mower we used to have, complete with a pre-war Villiers two stroke engine. This had a cast iron deflector top piston, and one piece cast iron cylinder & head. There was a crude kick starter, and it was at best temperamental. The snowflake crowd would be appalled at the “Carbon” emissions it produced (when I managed to get it running)…
