Thank you all. Thank you. As you can see I have already taken the bar to new depths. I promise you all that these depths will be plumbed and exceeded.

Ah, the joys of mobile use while mobile ...

There have been some strange incidents regarding plane passengers reporting their neighbours as terrorists, mainly due to them reading Arabic or similar. The one that really tickled me was the lady on a flight awaiting takeoff clearance in Ronald Reagan who insisted the air marshal detain the lad sitting next to her as he was reading an i-pad displaying "a language that I do not recognise".

The lady herself had to be escorted from the plane in the end, having escalated in hysterics to the point where she was endangering her own health, as well as the eardrums of all around her. The hysterics started when the marshal assured her the guy sitting next to her was actually the co-pilot reading the weather stats.

As silly as the other silly woman who had hysterics over the poor fellow on a plane writing in Arabic, turned out to be merely an Italian mathematician working on an equasion.

What ever it was that I did I had to do it quickly as the train was about to go in a tunnel. I was tempted to try and access stormfront. Instead I just went into default blame the Jews mode.

Caro turned me into an internationally published author by correcting my lack of punctuation and sending one of my rants about Brussels Sprouts to a NZ newspaper.

I am so proud of that it's on my c.v.

Still having to correct your punctuation, Bttdp.  And it wasn't a newspaper, it was the NZ Gardener, a very reputable magazine.  Brussels sprouts have made a comeback since then, I think, along with cauliflower, names the vegetable of the year in 2016!

Wasn't it you who queried what was in a woman's purse, on which I based a (hopefully) humorous article for the newspaper and they paid ME.
