    Well its like my doctor said to me during a recent telephone consultation when I queried the chest pains I am getting, his reply was "don't worry, we all have to die sometime"..... His bedside manner is worse than mine!

    Don't get me started on electric cars, I was nearly run over by a Mercedes A Class prototype fuel cell car at the Frankfurt motor show about ten tears ago, I was convinced from there that they were lethal, never heard the ****** thing coming! Twice I have nearly been run over in Sainsburys car park by taxi drivers parked outside the entrance suddenly steeping off in their Toyota Piuossuussi things, their lethal as well.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I think I preferred your recent line that you would "rather be run over by a car than a computer" in reference to driverless cars.
