About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

Elephants can remember (funny TV commercial)

I've seen this before (possibly in here), but it still made me smile...

The text is something along the lines of: "Think carefully before deciding what to do with your last Rolo".



George Best - A Life in Pictures

George Best died 10 years ago today. To commemorate his passing we take a look at some images of his Manchester United career, and how football reacted to his death on 25 November 2005

Favourite Best quotes:

"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds, and fast cars. The rest I just squandered"

To illustrate the point, Best recounted the story of how he went on a date with the woman who had just won the Miss World contest. They went to the races and won several thousand pounds.

That evening Best and Miss World laid the money out on the bed of their hotel room to count it. At that moment, a hotel waiter knocked on the door to bring them the two bottles of champagne they’d ordered to celebrate.

The waiter, still mindful of Best’s early retirement from football, handed over the champagne, looked at the beautiful Miss World, looked at the thousands of pounds and then said to Best: “George, where did it all go wrong?”

Kraftwerk - Robots (1978)

From the Man Machine album.

I loved this stuff back then while all my friends hated it. I've since acquired a new set of friends.
