Of course in which case I would almost never have light in my eyes (maybe if walking towards a very big mirror). Gamecock August 7, 2017 at 12:08 pm My Gamecocks play Texas A&M* Sept. 30. I’ll spread this one around before. Thanks, Tim! *Logo on hat. wiggiatlarge August 7, 2017 at 1:01 pm Nearly as good as the story I told awhile back of a car being parked at the local surgery. Man drives into car park and rides up on kerb, stops gets out to inspect for damage and removes hat, puts hat back on and gets back in car, repeat three times. In Australia they have a saying about drivers who wear hats in cars, simply, “beware the hat”. AndrewC August 7, 2017 at 1:43 pm Yep. Any driver wearing a hat should be given a wide berth. ‘Cept maybe in a convertible. Magnusw August 7, 2017 at 3:36 pm Timmy, I’d be interested in your opinion on this story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4767344/Pole-kidnapped-model-drawn-plot-Romanians.html Oh, and if there was ever a good use of quotation marks at the Daily Mail they should have been applied to her job as “model”. Tim Worstall August 7, 2017 at 3:46 pm I was just looking at that. So, who thinks it’s a new way to launch a modelling career then? Magnusw August 7, 2017 at 4:18 pm I bet you were ;o) Celebrity Big Brother next year? Magnusw August 7, 2017 at 4:24 pm My guess is it was meant to be some well paid escorting job that went bad. Maybe she turned up and lacked the necessary class for high class work, caused a fuss in a posh hotel and got stuffed in a bag until they could figure out what to do with her. Bloke in Costa Rica August 7, 2017 at 7:53 pm One of my Dad’s particular bugbears was old coots wearing trilby hats. They invariably drove at 45 mph on single lane country roads and refused to pull in to allow people to pass. Bloody menaces. Theophrastus August 7, 2017 at 8:25 pm “So, who thinks it’s a new way to launch a modelling career then?” Simply doesn’t ring true, does it? Has she a porn film coming out soon? Anyway, she gets her 15 minutes of fame. Gamecock August 7, 2017 at 8:34 pm “They invariably drove at 45 mph on single lane country roads” I call them “45ers.” They do 45 in a 55; when they get to a 35, they do 45. It’s their speed. jgh August 7, 2017 at 9:15 pm The kidnapped model: when reading it I tripped over and fell flat at “… model, 20, …mom of a 2-year-old…..” Remind me, just what century do we think we’re living in? bloke in france August 7, 2017 at 9:18 pm Well I’m an old coot then too. I was tootling down the road a few years back when some idiot pulled out from a red stop light. Turned out he was a driving instructor. Only a limited prang but I’ve been very cautious since. Don’t wear a hat though. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
