Gerroff! I never laugh at others misfortunes, well only a bit. Nothing scientific about it really, someone falls we laugh, why? cos it's funny. The motion picture companies made a killing out of it in the early days. That is to say..... hang on!, I'd best stop now, as I feel a touch of schlimmbesserungness creeping in.

'Schlimmbesserung is a rare, but useful German term to designate an effort to make something better that actually makes things worse.'

Is that more of an art, than a science, Joseph?

I don't think otherwise, Joseph.

(It was the 'proper romans' comment - I still remember your 'Proddy moprags' comment.)

I do forget some things. It's just the things I remember I don't forget, Veg Grower.
