But remember Douglas Adams (one of the 20th century's finest philosophers):

"This planet has, or had, a problem, which was this. Most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small, green pieces of paper, which is odd, because on the whole, it wasn't the small, green pieces of paper which were unhappy."

I wonder how much money the snot goblin wasted today defending his reputation by bidding up sterling first to 1.4900 and then to 1.5000?

When will someone shout to his face, “ENOUGH! YOU FRACKING LOONIE! YOU’RE RUINING US ALL”

That Stephanie Flanders, you would though, wouldn't you? Stupendously posh, child-friendly hips, husky voice, probably about six foot tall, what's not to like?
