Tuesday

1. Oh dear, maybe I was wrong:

Revealed: Flight logs prove Duke of York’s Epstein girl WAS at key locations… and on each occasion Prince Andrew was never far away, so now will he help her lawyers?

2. Haiku:

There are some who might ask “Why?” and others who would never dare ask “How much?”

One serious design flaw: no pillion for the let’s-go-for-a-ride chick.

3. It was not the film people went to the drive-in for:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7116000/

4. Far too much of the delicate flower inferiority complex to this – my dad’s bigger than your dad and he’s going to stop you, he is:

I’d much prefer something like: ‘So, what are you going to try next, Aussie?’ I mean, get a bit of confidence going.

5. Important read – many ways to access it:

6. On the question again of bypassing France and Germany:

7. The purpose of wives:

    A couple of months ago I re-watched ‘All the President’s Men’. Parsing the Palace’s press release yesterday, I was reminded of the phrase “a non-denial denial”.

    The Barghest blurb says:

    “Aggressive power comes on and pulls you into the S-turn. You lean into the turn. All three wheels driving hard into the road”

    And yet there is absolutely NO sign of any driveshafts to the front wheels! As to its looks – “At once you are being hurled by a locomotive” suggests the reason for the hideous frontal aspect!

      That’s the problem with readers here – always bringing reality into it. 🙂

    No pillion seat is a minor problem, The major problem happens when a loose boot lace or ragged trouser hem catches in what looks like an unshielded toothed drive belt to the rear wheel.
