    I'm doing 3-15 miles a day in all possible weathers, through mud, and flood, 365 days of the years ('cos dogs...).

    If you walk that much, in those conditions, cheap boots (<100) fall to bits in a...

    I have next to no knowledge of these, other than confirming that they are A Thing - I fell for something like this a couple of years ago, it being a converted Junghans pocket watch. It's rather well...

    Understood. It's something I obsess over a little; I'm a clumsy cnut (ana.).

    It's a hugely impressive number in a Top Trumps sense, and a handsome car too - very much unlike modern VW-Bugattis. But aside from certain salt flats and deserts, where can you get anywhere near...
