Davros solves the gnome shortage, a sandwich snatching seagull, free parking and a WD40 based top tip
2021, Episode 31 | 40 min
Davros may have solved the gnome shortage we discussed in episode 30 despite having a stereotyped view of gnomes. He’s also an expert on two-brained dinosaurs after Lippy’s “top” brain comment.
Lippy has a bee in her bonnet about the Champions League final being played in Turkey despite having two English teams playing. Neither of us know very much about football, nor the politics involved, nevertheless we don’t think this is a good idea for several reasons.
Gus the seagull has been making the news, having worked out to steal sandwiches from his local Co-Op. Grumpy has a great idea for a product that means you can eat your fish and chips on the beach without having half of it stolen by seagulls.
We talk about how a student in America worked out how to park his Jeep on his college campus for free. Also the Ohio State Senator who, on a Zoom call, tried to disguise the fact he was driving his car at the time. People using Zoom is the gift that keeps giving!
Grumpy marshalled at the Jigsaw Run, which aside from some wayward runners went well. He also found out something interesting about a large sheet of metal at Dunsfold Aerodrome.
The screaming Tomato contacted Grumpy and mentioned the Dunning-Kruger effect, which Grumpy does his best to explain without offending anyone. Part of the effect is that you don’t know you are doing it, so both Grumpy & Lippy apologise as they suspect they may be guilty.
Grumpy has read the excellent book Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss several times and Lippy has read half. Well worth a read.
Rant alert! Lippy has had a nightmare with solicitors and her house move, so close and yet so far.
Grumpy has a Top Tip involving WD40 and a Fun Fact on feeding yourself for a year with a first class airline ticket
