I want to scrape my own eyes out. I will never get those seconds back.

I watched it on TV last night. Typical James May type of program. Nothing special, but interesting enough to keep me watching.

I thought the premise was good, saying that a ridiculous number of men can't wire a plug these days. I thought we were going to get a handy hints-type programme: how to fix things, how to mix concrete, how to strip down a carburettor etc. Instead we got a load of asinine tripe.

Wot he said.

And I think "weak" is the perfect description of this programme. I shan't be watching it next week. It was truly awful.
And wot he said.

I used to like James May, I thought his run around France with that wine toff was good viewing, and the UK beer tour wasn't bad either.

Agreed, it kept me awake until Psychoville came on the box.

Loved the comment about him being "too weak"

Could quite possibly be wishful thinking

Asinine tripe and buffoonish it is, uneducational with a twinge of entertainment.

I guess he was just hoping to get an explosion of television ratings that would make a bomb for his bank account :D

I have always suspected him to be a wannabe poofter. After that I'm sure but I'm sure glad I don't watch television very much.

The bomb-defusing was a bit odd really. Given the 'climate' we are in and that the last thing an untrained person should do if they find a WWII bomb or a modern one is to start pssing about with it, claiming that 'that bloke from Top Gear' said it was alright.
Oh that's nothing.

Exploding Salt Explosives from Salt

is the sort of thing to be worried about. Read the comments, all the people doing it seem to be teenagers.

No wonder that country has problems.

But oh it would make a fantastic new category for the Darwin Awards :D

He basically shined some shoes (he had to use lady's boots for some reason) made a sandwich, made a work-top, poured salt into a deactivated fuse (or most likely just pretended and showed us one used in training etc...it had a nice neat cut-away in it) and I'm not sure what else...a few other things. It was ok. Bit buffoonish.

I will admit, I have had the curiosity how to actually bull boots before I am in but lacked the initiative to think that it would probably be on youtube, that or I get distracted too easily on arrse/porn/facebook etc. So that was informative. Oh and it made me have a fish finger butty, you really can fit 5 on one!! Amazing!
