Wow!

A great line from the late, great Hunter S Thompson, who once wrote: "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow!’"

Very good.
To which Mr Pierrepoint replies. "Yes hurry up, I can't hang around."

I almost did this in real life in 1997. The Trans Canada highway is (or was) 3 lanes each way through Merritt, BC. I carefully looked to my right; nothing was coming, and I launched myself off the "sidewalk" across the first three lanes before remembering to look the other way. Three lanes full of traffic fresh off a green light nearly mowed me down before I beat a hasty retreat. I don't know what they thought I was up to; foreigners aren't exactly common way up there.

Said these very words about an hour ago, about a jar of cream that was a couple of days past its use by date. So far, so good. If I don't post tomorrow...

Another classic from the pilot of a Canberra after losing an engine after take-off and heading south - had the presence of mind to key the mike and say:
”please contact the Mess and cancel 2 late lunches”

Did that a few months ago with some out of date apple sauce to go along with a pork roast, smelt ok but a tad funky on the taste.
Few hours later I was driving that good ole porcelain bus and regretting the choice bigtime!
