Somebody was telling me about the French Army rifle that was being advertised on eBay the other day. The description was, 'Never shot. Dropped once’

Saw this Douglas Adams quote and thought of Bill


Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty- five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

I also like Douglas Adams' definition of Technology: Comes with a set of instructions, like a bunch of flowers doesn't ....

Not at all... it's just that once upon a time necessity was the mother of invention and now it's a case of invent something shiny then exploit the herd mentality having said we all need one. The extravagantly useless iPad, for example...

Can't deny the man's utter genius - he certainly knew a herd of sheep when he saw one!

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year
old farmer from Norfolk, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while
working cattle, the Doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to David Cameron,
Ed Milliband & Politicians in general and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, "Well, as I see it, most
Politicians are Post Turtles'.

'Not being familiar with the term, the Doctor asked
him what a 'post turtle' was.

The old farmer said, "When you're driving down a
country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top,
that's a post turtle."

The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the Doctor's
face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself,
he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up
there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what
kind of dumb arse put him up there to begin with."



Best explanation of a politician I've ever heard !!!
