Quote of the weekend

I forget what car we were discussing, but we were in the Orcacab heading for Leeds and a weekend of footballing tomfoolery. It may have been a new Volkswagen model, but anyway; Orca and Liam were talking about some of the crazy hubris that had been laid out as requirements for the car, one example of which was that it had to be able to travel at 165 mph for 18 hours without heating up excessively.

I asked why someone would want to travel at that speed for that length of time, unless they were entered in the Le Mans or similar.

Joe piped up with one of his rare pearls of wisdom from the back seat: "You'd have to be leaving somewhere pretty shit, wouldn't you."
