So sad to hear that Keith Chegwin has died at the age of 60. I’ve met him and interviewed him a few times. I wish I’d kept the photos of us together and the audio of our chats. I know I used to have some and don’t know why I haven’t kept them. Maybe it’s […]

Predicting the future is not worth it because eventually you get proved wrong. I’m going to download the new Blade Runner film, “Blade Runner 2049”.

The work he’s given is to pick up litter under a highway overpass. I realised that for some people, that kind of work […]

The British can’t handle their drink. They get drunk any chance they can and even brag about it. They drink the most, when they’re on holiday. The first chance they get is at the airport. When I catch a flight early in the morning, I’m amazed at how packed the bar is. About 270m passengers […]

There are a lot of videos online that show what looks like people in old movies talking on mobile phones. This is supposed to prove that these people are time travellers. Well that just doesn’t make sense. Even if someone had taken their phone back in time, it wouldn’t work because there would be no […]
