Pink Floyd once had a flying pig, and it got away. I suppose that means that they no longer had a flying pig.
They got it back, and it ended up featuring in messy assets lawsuits between Roger Waters and David Gilmour.

The flying pig was last seen on the Eastern outskirts of Masterton.

So from that we learn, never get the lawyers involved.

I was once at a conference pre-meeting while the previous conference at the hotel was still going. A senior member of my group asked me "Tim who are they", I answered, "The American Association of University and College Attorneys" to which he answer, "Ah, that is why that are so many". The group in the hotel after us looked like they had more fun: The American Homebrew Association.

Aye. So much goodwill was destroyed. As older men they're now regretting all that.

The author of the Rumpole TV series thought that even worse than divorce cases for poor behaviour was Probate law.

I know, no way Norway has ever or will ever experience 40C
But surely, in a sauna. Or maybe Norwegians have no saunas?

Rumpole was a very clever show but I did greatly dislike the poor diction of Rumpole which made it hard to hear. I do find some of the UK accents rather difficult, which is a problem that in my job I must work with people from all over UK, as well as the rest of the world. There is such a range that I wonder how they talk to each other.

Oh, we sure do. But unlike in Finland they aren't part of any religion here.

You know. I still haven't bought a K-3... Guess this thread is serving its purpose.

Found this one at the entrance to an animal hide. The hide was obviously built before the digital era hit photography

What more reason does one need not to buy a K-3, I ask.

Some of us do try to talk such that the flies cannot get in our mouth while we talk. Tends to result in some difficulty distinguishing words which convey subtle humour.

Never have I seen so many flies. They seem to seek moisture, hence going for eyes, mouth, etc. How one is meant to be a cyclist in Australia confounds me.

Aren't they actually bees? Stingless bees? They were quite plentiful in the Kalahari.

We have "noseeums" . Not fun at all when cycling in to a whole cloud of them.
