Standing on a platform and having the train stop with the doors exactly slap bang in front of you. Get in there!

Crisp, clean and freshly ironed bedding. Get in there!

Mrs CB asking me if I fancy an early night :wink: . Get in there!

Parking the car in a really tight space perfectly first time. Get in there!

Fat women falling over.
Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

Thats brillaint - I'll also to my list plastic betrands lyric

"Allez-oop! One morning
a darling came to my home,
a cellophane puppet with Chinese hair,
a plaster, a hangover,
drank my beer in a large rubber glass
Oooo-ooo-ooo-ooo!
like an Indian in his igloo "
