    Come to sunny Kent

    It's a beautiful day here... a little chilly, but I'm not complaining.

    We were due Snow up here in the NE but it hasn't arrived yet, and judging the sky (like Crocodile Dundee) we're not going to get any. Makes me happy as larry because snow is no good for anything. It's just a waste of our time.

    Not much of note here in Leeds. Some Audi-driving turnip (not one of our lot) has gone over some vegetation in the car park, and left particularly entertaining skid marks!

    I read somewhere recently that Audi drivers have taken over from BMW drivers when it comes to driving aggressively, tail-gating, being a stereotypical prat etc. Maybe it's true.....

    The sky at Stansted is the same as always, grey, overcast, wet. I think it's been this way for years, never any sun.

    We don't have snow - just a heavy frost which brings the M11 and A120 to a complete halt.

    I think the weather dictates your mood. Moan, whinge, grizzle...

    Give me the NE anyday... it may be cold but at least its changeable.

    I think we need some pics!! Need some humor for the day

    Oh and as for the Audi man has taken over from BMW man, I resent that remark, nothing wrong with Audi drivers (fine I haven't got mine just yet but I'm getting there!!) TBH what ever car they are in they will be a twitt if they want to be.

    Anyway back to snow, still no snow here in the south lakes

    I grew up in Yorkshire so am used to 'proper' snow...

    I nearly died laughing when I saw this story Snow leaves winter wonderland across Kent in the Kent Messenger last Friday.

    Sorry, but I cannot count this as snow!

    It must have been Kent's turn for the gritter when that happened as we didn't have chaos on the roads! (I swear there is only one gritter shared between Kent, East & West sussex and Surrey)

    My soon-to-be-published scientific paper has uncovered some startling information about German marques. Towards the end of WWII, some of the foremost Nazi scientists saw that the tide was turning and came up with a new plan for the continuation of the Third Reich.

    Using parts of Mengeles' cloning experiments along with conventional science and occult research, they found a way to distil the essence of Hitler's soul and place it into a car. The Reich would be born through stealth, as the drivers of the cars would slowly be possessed by Der Fuhrer. The majority of scientists on the project went to BMW, others to Mercedes and some to Audi. A very few went to Volkswagen. (It was generally felt that, given Hitler's part in the company's inception, that it would be too obvious should drivers of VWs all start acting like Adolf).

    This spread explains the traditional differences in drivers across the 4 marques:

    Braindead Moron Wagon: complete and utter Hitlers
    Mercedes: utter Hitlers
    Audi: Hitlers
    VW: occasionally Hitlerish

    Obviously, the odd manufacturing fault or strong-willed driver means that not all drivers fall under the influence.

    Since the war the different groups have grown apart, and started to develop their own variations on the process - it may be that Audi's engineers have developed a more efficient way to allow the soul-clone to infect the driver in the past few years.

    Those that doubt this need look no further than Audi's own slogan, 'Vorsprung durch technik'. They have convinced the world that it means 'progress through technology', but if one breaks down the phrase it shows the truly fiendish plan the Nazi scientists have hatched.

    Vorsprung, literally 'that which came from before'
    Durch, future perfect 'shall be made dark'
    Technik, 'though technology'

    So we get 'that which has come before shall be made dark through technology'. A less literal translation would be: 'Our science will wipe you from history' .

    (With apologies to any Edugeekers with German cars - you're obviously far too strong-willed to be possessed by Hitler).
