Back in the day, I was writing a magazine article at my desk in London SW3. For three days I endured the sound of a jackhammer just outside my window. As far as I could tell it was a completely pointless exercise; the hole created by this ear-splitting, teeth chattering din didn’t seem to get any larger or, for that matter, serve any particular purpose. I lost it. I ran out and yelled at the sole workman to shut off his bleeping hammer. “What are you drilling?” I demanded. “The road,” he replied. And that’s how I survived 18 years in The Land of Hope and Glory. And here’s some of the funniest English accented material I’ve heard since John Cleese’s heyday.

    • Any exposure of the iris to laser light can lead to iris separation later in life. Happened to my old music teacher, you have to be super careful with all lasers.

  3. Bring one to school, go to jail. OK, maybe not, but a minimum 10-month suspension is guaranteed.

  4. Longtime reader. first comment IIRC.

    Pretty sure that’s from the Poundland shop (our version of a dollar store). There’s also a load of cheap shops that’d do them.

    If you’re serious about wanting one, I’d happily keep a lookout.
