    I think I need to go off for a little weep

    What's the position regarding cats?

    Land of the free, and home of the brave (mule).

    This is 2018. It can be whatever you want it to be.

    In America? Varies from state to state, I believe.

    It's OK, Clothy is a cat.

    I think that film has already been made. Not by the BBC though. So I've heard.
  7. Open to swaps/px - I could use a basic integrated amp (preferably with built in phono stage) or a MM cartridge, for example. If you have vinyl (and especially if you buy secondhand vinyl) you really need a cleaner.

    Myth or reality?

    Here's a rundown of all the doodads on my penknife: Big finger slicer, small finger slicer, alphabetti spaghetti opener, pointy thing, smaller pointy thing, spirally thing, little plastic thing that lives inside the spirally thing, eye poker, nasty jaggedy thing, bottle opener (hooray), thing for taking thorns out of dogs' arses (close, but no cigar) and a lemon zester. I was too tight to buy the model with the avocado destoner (deep regret).

    Nope. Rubbish.

    Myth or reality?

    I've just checked the specs for my penknife - no mention of any facility for dealing with horse flies. Frankly, I'm beginning to wonder if penknives are of any use at all.

    What is worst amp you have had that worked

    At last, my ideal amp. My search is over...

    Myth or reality?

    Penknives are often described as having a 'thing for taking stones out of horses' hooves'. If this is true, I've never worked out which particular gizmo is the right one to use. Myth or reality? I'd hate to encounter an uncomfortable horse and find myself unprepared - or worse, attempt a fix using the wrong bit.
