    Seen Any Good Films Lately?

    Know the feeling. For a start, Legolas wasn't in the book. That'll be because Tolkien hadn't thought him up yet. But his presence makes perfect sense.

    Reality TV

    Am I correct in thinking that this programme has little if anything to do with ships? I'm also moved to comment on the phrase "massive heart attack". Wouldn't plain "heart attack" suffice in these cases? I mean, if a person's cause of death is a heart attack I would assume that it wasn't a mild one.

    I'd guess that it was a matter of the time taken for the doctors to conclude, and the family to accept, that there was no hope of recovery. I think that you are probably right.

    Perhaps he was a big Only Fools and Horses Roger Lloyd Pack fan and last night was a tough read......... Fixed. The man was much more than a single comedy show.

    Jimmy Savile

    Sympathising with the offender? where do you get that from? EGN and I are clearly on the same wavelength, we remember how things actually were then. If I'd been groped by DLT or his ilk, I'd probably have done him some minor damage with an elbow or knee at the time. Job done. I wouldn't be running to the police about it in 2013, that's for sure.

    Jimmy Savile

    There may be more to come, of course, but I'm generally uneasy about hounding men for incidents thirty-odd years ago that just amount to groping, goosing, or copping a sly feel. This went on everywhere, and was never seen as "sexual assault" (which was something on another level). It was unpleasant*, but not a criminal offence. We dealt with these sleazebags by avoiding them, making withering comments or kneeing them in the nuts. Nowadays men know that this behaviour is not acceptable, but it was sort of tolerated back then. *unless you fancied the bloke, obv. Sometimes it was just a clumsy form of flirtation.

    Only Fools And Horses

    He was great, wasn't he? Superb comic timing. One of my favourite lines was in the episode of Vicar Of Dibley when they were discussing the cost of replacing a stained glass window. "£11,000? Bugger me! You could have someone killed for that!"

    I've seen her grave. Her husband is also buried there. He was an archaeologist, and on the headstone it is spelled "Archeaologist".

    Derby Dead Pool 2014

    Awesome performance from TMIB! will have a browse around. One unique for me, Caril Ann Fugate, bit of a long shot but I had read that her health wasn't great and being in a car crash that killed her husband probably won't have helped.

    Life In Prison

    The comments are revealing: "got what she deserved", "what goes around comes around", "KARMA" etc People really don't get that everyone dies, do they? This woman has died an apparently rapid and painless death. Isn't that what almost everyone would hope for themselves?

    Derby Dead Pool 2014

    I'm in, with a less interesting team than I'd hoped for, since a number of my potential picks did not wait around long enough to join the party. I was pleased with a top 20 finish after a couple of poor years (and half my team down which is a personal best) so we'll see what happens. Thanks again to TMIB for all his sterling work.
