  1. I’m not the type of fellow to indulge in flights of fancy when it comes to the cause of the page jumps. I’m sure there is a simple scientific reason that that we jump when we do – something related to a chronosynclastic infundibulum.

  2. I think it relates in some way to the bouffantocity DLRoth’s hairdo and his capacity to manage mid-air splits. Presumably we jumped more frequently in the 80’s.

  3. But you were the first to get here!

    Maybe we’ve been using the wrong metaphor. Perhaps the party moves to a new room in the palace so the staff can clean up the one we leave behind.

  4. I fear that’s what’s happening in my mind, Ace. But for ‘party’ read ‘train of thought’ and for ‘clean up’ read . . . hang on, where was I . . .?

  5. GUT! Can’t imagine why the rename never took off.

    And we’ll be all right regardless of the ice-caps because we have enough half-burnt, urine-soaked mattresses littering the street to save everyone. We’re like the anti-Titanic. In so, so many ways.

  6. I read that Elon Musk is in the flamethrower business. Did he buy up Del’s iFlames or did he develop his own electric version?

  7. Ace,
    I’d only be worried if Musk managed to figure out how to replicate Del’s tunnel critters (not to be confused with Musk’s tunnel machine or company).

    1. We Welsh have failed with the last serious attempt in the early 15th century apart from blowing the odd leg off of electricity pylons and fitting heating to unoccupied English holiday homes.

  8. Yes, same from me. I’m afraid I missed Independence Day due to my dependency on looking after my burgeoning dependents. Who, ironically, wish ever greater independence. Not least in order to track down and ‘correct’ Alex ‘Raised Pinky’ Morgan, in the case of my football obsessed daughter. (Personally I found it funny, but I’m out of tune with the Twitterati, it would seem. Apparently British people don’t have a sense of humour any more. Missed the memo, I fear.)
