    I was really sad to hear that he'd died. I wasn't actually a fan, never watched their TV show or other appearances. Always thought of it as working class comedy, not aimed at me. But I'd heard them...

    Yes, but only because that's what the audience understands. Or the American part of it anyway. I have no idea either.

    Just Googled it though. A bit more than a San Miguel bottle.

    Interesting. Although I didn't participate officially (I was a bit late) I did keep a record of my £7 Casio's timekeeping. It was 2 seconds slow 209 days ago and it's now about 5.5 seconds fast. Call...

    Before the advent of the railways and their timetables, there was no single unified timezone in Britain. If it was 6pm in London, it probably wasn't 6pm in Newcastle. What the definitive reference...

    I note from this thread that I've had mine for 18 days now, and in that time it's gained about half a second, if that. Pretty impressive, at least for the moment.
