And that's how babies are made!

Our granddaughter entertained the assembled family yesterday with her explanation of life, which she figured out after much pondering.  I am not making this up.

It all starts when a girl kisses a boy.  The boy's spit has fertilizer and it gets into a  small hole in her tongue.  When she swallows  the egg goes into her stomach where it grows for two months. Then the baby comes out of her privacies.

Oh.  The reason girls can't show their na-nays, but boys can, is because the girl's na-nays contain milk and she can't let it get stolen.  Boys don't have milk in their na-nays, so they don't have to hide them.

Wheeler Stealers


Been watching Wheeler Dealers, off and on,  for several years now. For the uninitiated, two blokes find old clunkers and fix them up.  The real star of the series is master mechanic Edd China.  He has a degree in engineering and product design, and at 6' 7" (2.01 m) can scarcely fit behind the wheel of some cars he brings back to life. Velocity channel has recently begun showing stuff from back when Mike and Edd had a £1000 budget.  Priceless.

Anyway, the lads buy old cars that ex-car salesman Mike Brewer seems to have an emotional attachment to, and Edd refurbishes.  The key is Edd's incredible knowledge and ability to fix damned near anything.  I am mesmerized, and fancy running out to the garage and fixing something after every show. For a few minutes.  They will for example spend 2000 quid on parts, but Edd's labor is never included in the selling price calculus.  Consequently, the cars are sold at ridiculously low prices.

All that is brings me to this.  There have been no cars that I would not have purchased on the spot. For full asking.  None.  And then resold at at a huge markup.  The purchase prices, and niggling by the buyer drive me nuts. Makes me wonder if the buyers aren't all Mike's friends, because all of them make out like bandits. Best deals ever.
