Zhao sounds great. Back back Zhao! Come back @zhao2
He had an extraordinary knowledge of music, but he also said that prehistoric man used much more of his brain than we do now and that this gave him the ability to fly.
He was supposed to DJ in the UK once and he was gonna stay at my house, but when they saw his DJ equipment in customs at the airport they googled his name and found the gig and, cos he had a simple tourist visa he was not allowed to do that, even though, if I remember correctly, it was a charity gig and he was not gonna be paid - and so they did not allow him to enter the country.

I also remember when someone told the slightly er, what's the word I am looking for here, I think, yes, racist is the word - or at least, someone told the culturally insensitive joke "Why can't the Chinese and the Japanese ever be friends? Because neither side is able to say sorry" - and Zhao, not unreasonably perhaps, got annoyed, though not at the bit you might think, he said "Can someone explain what China has done to Japan that requires an apology?".

When it says "The police want YOUR ideas to help with dogging" that's not a generic You by which they intend to address "any member of the public" is it? Rather I understand it to be that they were quite literally and specifically addressing you, @WashYourHands right?

It was fun while it lasted in the early days of the internet but at some point you have to grow up and move on
