    Would vote for him ahead of Laurence Fox, that's for sure.

    Has he lost the plot or never had it?

    Shame, I like his cousin but then you can't judge someone based on their family.

    I can certainly get behind #11 on that list.

    Actually, that manifesto makes more sense than any of the usual suspects does!

    Well if orangeface can become President, surely Binface can become Mayor.

    I feel #16 should also have included the PA system with John saying, "Commuters, are you ready?" when the doors opened.

    So very much yes. People seem to think I've gone insane when I talk about playing Mechwarrior in the giant 'VR' pods in the Trocadero, but it was real damnit!

    I was so disappointed when I realised only recently that it's no longer the awesome place I visited last when I was... 13?

    Last time I saw Mechwarrior pods, it was in the basement of the Hyatt Regency hotel in Chicago during the 2012 World Scifi Convention. Fun fact: The fire doors opened onto Lower Wacker Drive, as mentioned in Blues Brothers.

    I am lucky enough to have a couple of ex-Troc arcade cabinets. But - I wish it was still a thing. That R360 :heart:

    A few pals have that book. I've considered it a few times. Maybe I ought to buy it :)

    I'd rather an Outrun DLX though... ;)

    The book's cheaper - and fits better on a shelf!

    Yes true, but does it play 'Magical Sound Shower'?

    Give me five minutes with a scalpel, microcontroller, LiPo battery, and piezoelectric buzzer, and the answer's "maybe."
