Brilliant.

Does bus driving run in the family?

Perhaps stealing Bob Monkhouse's jokes runs in the family. Mind you (though I'm not one to speak ill of the dead) he only ever had two funny jokes. The one about grandad and his passengers and:

They use to laugh when I said I wanted to be a comedian; well, they're not laughing now.

He probably pinched the Grandad and passengers joke from LBLM.

And which airline did he fly for?


Probably AeroFlot - which prompts (not begs) the question:
Which is the world's worst airline?

We dont do any running in my family, We are all built for comfort rather than speed.

Hypothermia is quite a pleasant way to go after the initial cold you feel warm & drowsy


I had hypothermia once, on a Welsh mountain. It was certainly cold to start with but that did fade, along with the violent shivering. As far I can remember however - and I was in a somewhat peculair state - after that came some rather alarming hallucinations.

I'd like to die aged 240 - want to know how the 2100's turn out.

Then I'll be sat in my favourite armchair with a half finished glass of red wine and a finished box of Swiss chocolate - unless someone else makes better by then.

Celebaelin.

Aged 273 (ascribed to a mixture of sorcery and a regular intake of embalming fluid), of bloodloss on a bleak and windswept moor with a recently bloodied sword in his hand and a smile on his lips whilst muttering “Eat your heart out Cu-chulainn.” Last surviving warrior of the First Back to Nature Movement Tribal Wars (just).

I'd like to die in my sleep, but be a Saint. Well, there is a Saint Natalie, but she's religious, and I'm not. I'd also like to pop into Heaven (if there is one) in advance, to see if there was one, then come back to life. However, I don't want a "near-death" experience with white lights and floating feelings and all that jazz - I want a proper death experience that cynical teenagers will believe.

So, a violent, computer-generated death surrounded by slain foes and very loud music would be needed????

(who wants to die in his sleep, peacefully, aged 296, in perfect health [aside from being dead, that is, so no painful afflictions would be a no-no] as he is allergic to pain and agony).

Doesn't that mean you wish to die painfully?

:p

I'll rephrase...

...so no pain, painful afflictions would be a no-no...

Ah, the problems of typing whilst keeping an eye out for my boss!
