Ironically, I just learned about this from our friend Road_UK on Facebook....

Just learned this? You don't really follow Top Gear do you?

I signed the petition to get him back on the show 28 hours ago (I got the link through another forum so can check what time it was). The amount of 'signatures' has been climbing ridiculously. When I sent it it had less than 30k signatures. It's over 600k now

I DVR it when it shows up here about a week after it's aired in the UK. I'd have to be following British news sites, which I don't usually do. (And I'm on Continental sites less than usual because I'm "being good" at work - campaigning for a promotion and actually busy - and a bit out of whack in my free time due to this damn broken wrist.)

But my understanding is he hit a producer? I'm not clear what that has to do with political correctness. This probably comes under Regrettable Things That Were Bound to Happen Eventually. Sort of like Road_UK's ban.

And talking of this damn broken wrist, doc now thinks the cast can come off two weeks sooner. (Three weeks from now, four after the injury.)

I did my best but although it was shot twice, still have not found myself at the images. Not even my car

After France protests, Belgium retired a new €2 coin. 175.000 had been minted already.

Oh, come now. They've had two centuries to get over that.

And seriously, who can you put on a coin or stamp these days that won't offend someone, particularly on the scale of the Eurozone?

There's a little movement over here to get Andrew Jackson off the $20 - soon to be worth 20 euros :-) - bill. Not clear why... I mean by early-21st-century standards he was, well, bad, but no worse than any number of other people of his time....

Last night some drunk idiot stopped his vehicle on the overtaking lane of the Ljubljana-Maribor motorway and fell asleep. Luckily there was no accident.

One of my favourite authors died yesterday. RIP Sir Terry Pratchett. I hope you and Death are having a few together.
