And just in case any really anxious christians are a bit narked and write in to complain, “You wouldn’t dare take the piss out of Muslims” – yes I’ve had them – here’s one for them.

“How can you have order in a state without religion? For, when one man is dying of hunger near another who is ill of surfeit, he cannot resign himself to this difference unless there is an authority which declares ‘God wills it thus.’ Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.”
“A soul you say? Give my pocketwatch to a savage and he’ll think it has a soul.”
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” — Seneca the Younger
“Religion is a byproduct of fear. For much of human history, it may have been a necessary evil, but why was it more evil than necessary? Isn’t killing people in the name of God a pretty good definition of insanity?” — Arthur C. Clarke
Following the recent purchase of my lovely Rolex Explorer, I thought it would be interesting to update the watch database and pie chart of expense. I’m down to a mere 7 watches now but the average value has increased with the arrival of the second Rolex. There are none that I really need or want to sell on but a couple may head off as they’re watch forum favourites and worn sparingly.
Some very exciting statistics for you to enjoy:
The long winter evenings will fly by….
