  3. Oh that was fun and just about sums up my week so far, i.e. Alcatraz closes, share a birthday with Ronaldinho and Ernie Wise dies on my birthday!

    Your're on a dual carriageway with a sheer drop to your one side and a fire engine in the lane right next to you, in front is a giant pig as big as your car travelling as fast as your car. In the rear view mirror you see a helicopter flying at ground level, again at the same speed as you. You need to escape but what can you do?????



    Go easy on the alcohol and get of the merry-go-round! Sorry the photo inspired me.
