Ridiculous guitar prices
Did I miss anything?

We use Fahrenheit for weather a lot still in U.K. When we say hot weather can make high 90's it had better be!
Yeah. And roundabouts are magically efficient compared with chaotic US cross junctions but I have to admit right turn on red makes up for it a bit. That is enlightened.

I deserve that... *slowly walks out the room*
There's still time to edit it before they all get out of bed over the pond...
