    Is it just me or is the audio as good as a former everton manager?

    An interesting episode, though a discussion of the difference between inadvertant harm and deliberate harm would have been nice.

    You may wish to look up Einsteins refrigerators, there were some interesting concepts evolved, which sadly were never perfected.

    Although I miss Colin (best of luck with being a new dad)
    I absolutely love Alice as our new balance to the M&M craic.

    This is genuinely the most wonderful way SwaK could move forward.

    Thank you all individually & collectively.

    Marsh, it gets even better. I love the Korsakov method also. I think you called him Alexander, but his first name (at least from my reading and Wikipedia) is Semen.
    Inappropriate jokes about shaking in 3…2…1…

    However, can you guys please refrain from using the word cunt?

    Although the correlation between Thomas Midgley and Hitler was a glib comment. During the war the allies had leaded petrol and the Germans did not. This meant that they could run the airplane engines at a higher compression ratio and therefore get more power from the engines. So without leaded petrol it is highly likely that the Battle of Britain would not have been won and the war would have gone on longer.

    Keep up the good work. I’m off to stab an acupuncturist
