I found these videos strangely calming, and wish more people would drive like this...

(Episode 3 is the best.  Sort of thing that restores your faith in the internet.)

I like that.  Ta.

"How can people become more Ogmios?
They can go bald and get into herbal teas and only drive bangers."

Two thirds of the way there then, shame about the herbal tea thing.  :)

Lovely. But shouldn't be watched before work because a) so chill b) almost lost my tea to the line "They think they're invincible just because they're from the future." Which is perhaps not in itself a funny line but somehow in context it worked.

Do we know the release date for Pothole 3000 ? I'd play that.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I see little evidence of any women taking part in the festival of Purim.
Just blokes.
And the occasional sprog.

Agreed. It was just that I don't often see Orthodox Jewish people wearing glitzy cowboy hats.

Did a ride with Ian Rauk one rainy Saturday, (so rainy that we were forced to take shelter in shop doorways) .
I think the ride may've been to Cambridge.
The ride went through Stamford Hill.
The men were all out and about, wearing their shtreimels.
They all had made-to-measure see-through plastic covers.
Looked pretty cool.
Obvs not as cool as metallic blue cowboy hats thobut.

In these circles, women must not dance or sing within men's sight.

Some enterprising women's groups sing and dance in women only groups.

He doesn't appear to have done any further episodes of the School of Zen Motoring, which is a shame. Plenty of older (and perhaps less zen) music videos to be found.
