Why do people spend money on getting private number plates, especially on shit old cars 

 

because then you don't realise how shit and old the car is

See the source image

audi Wolverhampton once tried to flog me a car which must have been challenge of the month or something, the guys sales pitch was it has a private plate so people wont know its 3 years old, don't worry about buying new!! that's great mate but what the **** have those initials got to do with me?

Will I survive all the fights and the darkness?
Trouble sparks, they tell me: "Home is where the heart is."
Dear departed, I shed tattooed tears
And couldn't sleep good for multiple years
Witness peers catch gunshots; nobody cares
Seen the politicians ban us, they'd rather see us locked in chains
Please explain why they can't stand us
Is there a way for me to change?
Or am I just a victim of things I did to maintain?

I travel on a bus, on a train and on a plane.  

I travel in a car, in a taxi and in a lorry. 

Why is it "in" rather than "on" or vice versa?

Because the English language is a beautiful art form.

Do I warm an apple turnover up or eat it cold?

You warm it unless you are a weird freak. And spread some clotted cream over the top of it.  You probably won't survive the night but oh my gosh, what a way to go.

In religious belief systems that revolve around the karmic wheel, universal harmony, oneness with nature, etc... when you have a wank over the thought of an old flame, does that send positive karma to the person you're wanking about?

Probably if you are imagining Karma all over her.

Did Alan Shearer get any comeback from his wife after announcing scoring goals was better than sex?

On telly and everything. Millions watching, probably

She might still pee in his coffee every morning?

Sadly this has made me imagine how Alan Shearer has sex.

No foreplay, two minutes of hard missionary and then he does a lap of the bedroom with the classic one arm salute, leaving his wife to finish herself off.

Last night I wondered three things, could something like the The European witch craze of the 14th to 17th centuries happen again, why isn't sledging more popular given how popular snowboarding and skiing are, and in the arts have we already seen the best of everything in terms of paintings, pieces of music, architecture, novels, plays and so on.

Yes

You’d have to sledge really fast and loud for a snowboarder to hear it.

No

Obviously the arts one is down to individual taste, but it's hard to imagine that there will ever be painters as good or renowned and long lasting as Picasso, Da Vinci,  or Michelangelo and so on, playwrites as good as Shakespeare, composers who will have a big of a cultral impact as Bach, Beethoven etc cetera, or a novel to rival any of the obvious classics.

I think that would be quite depressing if I thought all the best artists had already been and gone.

But I can see how people kind off presume we’ve already reached a pinnacle. It would be the same as people presuming we had reached some technological peak once we had trains, or cars, or aircraft. It’s difficult to imagine something better and that’s why so few go on to produce something better. But thankfully, those few, do.

Technology is constantly improving in our lifetimes so with that it's easier to imagine that it will keep getting more impressive, whereas artists like Shakespeare, Bach, Da Vinci and so on have been considered the pinnacle of what they do for hundreds of years. Maybe the arts will go through another golden age when it produces works to rival the names mentioned, might coincide with sum future technology that we can't even imagine at the moment.

I totally get your point, but the perimeters in music are very narrow.  There is a set number of notes, there are only certain wavelengths of sound we can hear and although we have newer instruments (keytar!) they still have to be set within those perimeters.

Technology however, we are doubling it's memory capabilities and doubling power potential every 5-10 years - we're no where near the pinnacle of it.  Virtual reality for example.  First came about in the 80s, when games were locked onto 500kb disc spaces etc.  In 30-40 years, we're at more than 100x that power, meaning the games are pretty much photo realistic.  

Again, I totally get your point, and until the 60s/70s when computers came in and changed how the Beatles sounded, and definitely how the 80s sounded, we're kinda stuck now, don't you think?  Maybe technology in changing your voice will be the next big game changer, more so than auto tune which has been flavor of the industry over the last 10 years.
