Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Possibly. I just can't believe the moronisity (!) of some people.

The woman concerned was probably a good Daily Mail reader following her government's advice about storing petrol in case of a shortage. :roll:

When in South Africa, the petrol pump attendant who was filling the car often had a lit cigarette hanging from his mouth. :o I neatly messed myself the first time I experienced it. :lol:

:lol: It's like when I bought a Calor Gas cooker in a camping shop back in the 70s and the guy there tried to put it in while smoking a cigarette. Silly bugger didn't have a clue. You were supposed to unscrew the burner, drop the canister in and then, slowly screw the burner back in. He had gas pouring out everywhere and I still don't understand why he didn't go up in flames. :roll:

I remember reading about that on TV Tropes. Yeesh. :?

Bouncy, you know how you said about moronisity? Well, I believe the term that you're looking for is actually what doctors call 'faecal encephalopathy'. ;)
Have you seen the size of human brains? They're hilarious!
