Legend (aka Marc Newson's "Works" album) claims that there was a pink or maybe Newson orange prototype. I've only seen a screencap of a video of him thumbing through the book. None of the university libraries around here has a copy of the book, and no one will give me a measly thousand dollars to buy it (six grand for the 'limited' edition, which probably isn't even weather-sealed).

He was at one point a Shakespearean actor, which I find incredible.
He was in a couple of Twilight Zone episodes ("Nick of Time" and the classic "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet") and pretty much played himself in both.

To be honest, his work on "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" was pretty good, though he did have Rod Serling's help.

OK ... so what's a "SRL" anyway
Single Rens Leflex silly

The transposition is fairly understandable and not that uncommon. Still though, you would think that someone would have fixed it by now.

After a day like that, that's what I would have. Right after I had a couple of stiff drinks.

Where's RacerX? I said his punishment was harsh, but this counts, too. I'd say you are forgiven. I'll even throw in one free pass.

I was going out to jog on a cold, wet, nasty morning, and as I passed the dog-walk area, the maintenance guy was removing the bag from the "put your dog waste here" bin. It was full of rainwater as well as whatsit, and of course it burst, spraying cold, liquid dog#### all over him. I had to think that no matter what happened to me that day, I was having a freakin' wonderful day.

There is a slightly bright spot to the story, in that after my run, I saw him in different clothes kissing a lady goodbye as she got into a car with a plastic bag. So at least he had someone to bring him clean clothes at work (presumably while he got a shower).

I usually run at midnight, yesterday it was about -1C and I almost slipped several times. But there is this really peculiar weather phenomenon here in Dundee that very rarely in late autumn/early winter instead of falling, the temperature rises after sunset. Today at 7 pm the temperature was 4C, when I walked home from a mountain safety lecture with my mates we were hit by some sort of weird warm wind on campus. Not 'warm warm', but much warmer than the other gales. First we thought it must've been some building's exhaust port, but there was nothing around and it went on for a couple of minutes. When I left the house about an hour later at 10 pm for some late night shopping the temperature had risen to 12C and I took off my jacket!

Tried to google the reason but couldn't find anything. Anyone here able to explain this mystery? It seems to be linked to the wind (it picked up from about 5 mph at 7 pm to about 15 mph at 10 pm), but how?
