We should hover over Iran and give them a burst on the banjo.

That should sort out Aminmedinnerjacket,I think that's his name.

Silly boys! The wood comes from the porch of the education building, not from the reactor. I would have liked to hear him play one.

I liked this part:

"Spanners used in the demolition of a nuclear power plant are now helping to refurbish a steam engine.

Made to imperial measurements, the tools loosened nuts and bolts at Dounreay which modern metric equipment could not."

Modern metric - it just doesn't have the magic.

The scary thing about that last bit is that there may be some bit of nuclear machinery they've forgotten about which will need a discontinued size of spanner to fix when it goes explosively wrong a few decades down the line. And they'll have to put out a desperate call for help to vintage banjo owners to sacrifice their tuners.

I'd like to put in an order for a set of banjo strings made out of depleted uranium.

Cheerily,

" a desperate call for help to vintage banjo owners to sacrifice their tuners."


Jack, that is elitist and very, very naughty. I loved it.

Met the man and the banjo today. Both very nice. Banjo does not glow in the dark!

What a coincidence, John. I'm glad to hear you are pro banjo, because I like banjos.

To the best of my knowledge "imperial" measurements are still alive and well in the USA, and there are no signs whatsoever that they will be switching to "modern metric measurements".

Our manufacturing is divided up between metric and decimal inch measurements now. Outside of factories, us Christian Americans stick to inches (in fractions) and feet, yards, and cubits and furlongs, just like God gave them to us.
