I love the names. 'armitage shanks' 'sturmey archer' took me AGES to work out 'bowden cable'!

I am actually leaning towards unhinged! Who else but a mad person would think up the 'stupidity surplus''! We should definately use that in this country!

Ok, now I feel stupid

<whispers>
Explain the names pretty please?

'armitage shanks make toilets, 'sturmey archer is the gears on your racing bike, and a bowden cable is the brake cable apparently! There are so many, it blows the mind. They are so random! Please don't feel stupid, my brain is a natural receptacle for the bizarre and useless! grin
