i see your Sinclaire..
and raise you a Cleese
paris trumps all others..
Sir Clive Sinclair has married his lapdancer fiance Angie Bowness in a Las Vegas ceremony. The pair married at the Civil Court in Las Vegas while staying at the Bellagio Hotel, after a ten year on-off relationship, the Daily Mail reports. Asked about the 36-year age difference between them 69-year old Sinclair said: "It's …
one mans god anothers embarassing berk
takes all sorts i suppose
just a couple of quick questions...
personal computers... sinclair invention or IBM?
Digital watches... nippon economy's LCD model or sinclairs led's?
Audiophile electronics... sinclairs DIY crud, or just about anyone elses?
smal screen tv... massively overcomplex un-original folded crt, or lcd (again)
ridiculous plastic car anyone?... no didn't think so. then as now.
sir clive reperesents everything that was ever wrong with thatchers britain. the only thing he;s top at is being second rate
..to have the benefit of hindsight.
I think, Squire, you're being a bit unfair to the bloke. "The man who never made a mistake, never made anything" springs to mind...
Wasn't the first steam train supposed to be pulled by a piston, vacuum-driven by a pipe along the track, sealed with leather*? (Steam powered the vacuum pumps)
Now that's an idea nowadays that wouldn't survive the aspirin/coffee hangover cure of a Friday night's "lads-night-out". Bleeding daft. But then...
Oh, is that 'Sir Naughtyhorse'? Thought not.
the atmospheric system to which you refer was developed by IK Brunel (it was disucssed by others, but i believe his was the first passenger carrying system - not sure if anyone was earler) as a small part of the GWR. rail had been around for yonks at the time. -incidentally an atmospheric loco held the world land speed record for a long time (okay it was an accident when the load got decoupled, but nonetheless...)
SIr Naughtyhorse??? most certainly not, I lack the arrogance, inverted inferiority complex and cash to even consider a K
although if i did....
I have invented a time machine.
it wont do backwards in time until version 2.0 (just a few slight bugs)
it only goes forwards at time x1
it's available now for just £79.99
(delivery may take up to 18months)
now wheres that K i'm owed
yes i have just invented a box. the idea is you sit in it for an hour, say, and lo and behold you have traveled 1 hour into the future. and even worse if i make the box from low grade cardboard i get to screw a few more pence from the hapless morons who buy into it.
the 18 month delay is because all my manufacturing calcs are done using reverse polish notation :D
take my word for it, the emperor IS naked.
naked, bald and a pensioner <shiver>
"Amazingly attractive to women" and just *happens* to be a millionaire. Who'd've thought it? Sure it's a cliche, but it's a cliche for a reason - bcos there *are* plenty of shallow women who'll lie back and think of the money, and there *are* plenty of shallow rich blokes who don't really care whether she's just in it for the money or not. I'm not saying Bowness and Sinclair fit the bill, but there's an awful lot of similar couples who do.
""He's actually incredibly attractive to women," she fumed. "You can't tell from the pictures."
Er, you can't tell from reality, either. Sounds like she won't be joining Mensa, even as an honorary member (no such thing, BTW). Sounds awfully like a self-destructive comment, too.
However, I'd wave my MK14 manual as a flag, if I could find it....Beer'll have to do. Man's a legend, but often had a gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, somehow....
Oh, and if anyone croaks on about the age difference in conjunction (snigger) with bedrooms, I've one thing to say to them.
Cruel, but funny.
Also, her last line:
"He's actually incredibly attractive to women," she fumed. "You can't tell from the pictures."
Is what the laydees say about me. And I am neither rich, nor bald*
I am unsure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
*subject to much debate.
I've ridden one round the Brooklands banking and the Mercedes test track/skid pan... No they don't go fast enough to get the tail end out, although I believe the DIY 24v modified one did before the wheel hub collapsed!
A right giggle, but as practical transport, a joke.
Far too many design shortcuts... If you push them backwards you blow diodes!
Seriously! Got me on the road to where I am now (OK, I'm currently on the dole, but I meant a couple of years ago....)
From the jpg, the lucky b'stard had the later through-hole-plated version. I had to push tiny bits of wire through each hole, then use some kind of 'socket-on-a-strip' product (I forget the name. Maplin sold it), and solder - carefully - both sides. Note the builder threw caution to the wind and soldered in the 8055(?) expansion 40-pin device directly.
I am sure they both know exactly what they are doing - she gets access to a lot of money knowing she has to "know" an older gentleman for it and he gets his end away with a young hottie knowing that it would effectively cost him money.
But given he would probably have to spend the same no matter who he got married to I think he has made a wise choice.
