    For the last few decades while I have been working there has always been some old duffer in the corner banging on about traffic congestion.

    Shouldn't they be more concerned about how close the Doomsday Clock is to midnight or the zombie apocalypse?

    Threads that ask 'recommend me'. For example, 'recommend me a bike' It's always sounded weird to me. I'd say 'recommend a bike to me'

    Why was Sting concerned about breaking his leg walking on the moon? I mean, it's certainly something you wouldn't want to happen, not least because it's a fvk of a long way to the nearest hospital, but I would have thought there'd be other things that'd worry him more. Like running out of oxygen for instance.

    When the weather has been hot and sunny why does my neighbour but her wet washing on a clothes airer in front of the patio door instead of on the washing line :scratch:

    I think your bones start to lose density when in weightless conditions for a long time.

    Why don't supermarkets sell canned dog-poo ?

    I need somewhere safe to stand with my trolley (while Mrs V browses) where people aren't constantly reaching over me, or asking me to move.

  9. Because she knows that putting washing on the washing line will be seen as a challenge by the Weather Department and they'll make it rain.

    Why is it obligatory to have a 'conversation' nowadays, rather than 'talk about' or even 'discuss'? It's one of the most over-used expressions in radio, along with 'issues around', of course.

    If that was the case then why buy them because it would have the same effect when wearing them.

    I expect it does, but the prolonged exposure to UV on a washing line in direct sun probably hastens the process.
