I know it makes a better story, but he must have an extremely low tolerance to alcohol if he can become "drunk" while merely ordering a first pint in a pub.


#3

The summary and quoted section both note prominently that he was a nudist, and, you finish off with "Lots of cool photos"......

Questionable.....


#4

Can you still get blubs for the old classic Lava lamps now that high output (and heat) incandescent blubs are phasing out?


#5

Maybe it was just the first pint in that pub.


#7

I can't bring myself to flag it. Nudist spam, how quaint.

Learned a new word today; thanks! http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/blub
While I'm at it, 20 pounds would be closer to $60 in the mid 50s. Still a good deal, though over a weeks pay back then (I was making 24 pounds a week in 1970).

..merely ordering..? Jeepers, how drunk can he get after he drinks it?

/Um, and 'nudist'? Don't they prefer 'naturist'?
