It's not unusual.
« on: July 27, 2019, 10:10:11 PM »
I've talked before about open-air concerts that take place in Dundee, roughly two or three miles from my house across the river Tay. I've also talked about how sound travels and how I can hear every single note. Can you guess from my heading which ageing Welsh crooner who wonders what's new about a pussycat is performing tonight?

That's nice to get a free concert  (y)
People will come from strange lands to hear me speak my words of wisdom. They will ask me the secret of life and I will tell them. Then maybe I'll finish off with a song. The Nomad

Did he even need a sound system?

I can't help wondering what it must be like in the front row at these gigs. Given that I can hear every word from over two miles away, I'm assuming it's tad noisy.
Anyway, I can only take my hat off to ol' Tom and his enduring tonsils. My version of "Space Oddity" is a bit croaky these days.

You'd be there in the front row if it was old whatsisname ... you know, the one with the flat cap - you've got one just like it ... ooh, name eludes me ... oh yes, Clayderman!

You know you're in trouble with Tarquin, as well, about that....

;D

Tarks reckons that wild elephants do not live in Loch Ness, but I pointed out that he could not be sure given the sheer size of the loch.

Stupid logic and misrepresentation. Wild elephants could live in any loch in Scotland. They're big, but not that big. They're also land dwellers, and there are no wild elephants with ears the shape of Scotland, let alone pairs of trunks. So I think that completely rubbishes your argument.

Who's Clayderman?
I apologise, in advance.

:o This must be the finest example of a non sequitur I have ever encountered.

You need to get out more.

It's perfectly logical; you only find wild elephants on two continents. African elephants have ears shaped like Africa. Asian elephants have ears shaped like India. There are no elephants with ears shaped like Scotland, Ergo, there are no wild Scottish elephants...unless they live in lochs...underwater. And if you believe that, you may as well believe in the Loch Ness Monster, as there have been a huge amount of recorded sightings of the plesiosaur Nessie, and, as far as I'm aware, very few of elephants. There was one that could have been a trunk, but it's since been exposed as a fake.
I apologise, in advance.

An elephant was trying to masquerade as a trunk?
