Why didn't Louis Van Gaal get a gig? Greatest actor of them all - convinced countless people he could manage a football club.

So just what is the third Great Invention of all time?

Thanks, that's good news - let's hope it doesn't take too long or the traffic might get me/

Re: Age is a bugger

I knew this was happening to me this morning when I got half-way across the road and the traffic stopped to let me continue - didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

I recently bought an Amazon Fire TV box, being a Prime member this includes the Prime Instant Video service. Poking around in the settings, I discovered the box can enlarge subtitles on a dark background making them much easier to read. Unfortunately, this only seems to work on Prime content. These are the best subtitle options I've ever seen, I wish Ofcom would mandate this system for all channels. My mother is 95 and has Glaucoma and has to sit very close to the TV to read FTA subs, I suppose at her age the increased radiation won't make much difference but it would be nice if she had the opportunity to see subtitles from a reasonable distance.
