When people refer to watching box sets nowadays the sets are rarely in a box.

New page, wherever I fuck my hat, that's my home. And this should be in the obvious things etc thread...

I quite like that old fashionedness, it's like "dialing" a phone number.

And died at 60. Must have had some sort of premature ageing gene. Or drank a lot.

Or both.

Edit - he started smoking when he was twelve, which can't have helped.

Farage is at least seriously working towards an early grave. Aircraft that don't kill him only make him smoke more.

He was playing police inspectors in his mid-twenties. He's in Strange Report, where the juvenile leads were both older than him.
His Aveleyman entry is interesting. When he smiles, at 22, there's a vaguely young, almost Beckinsale-y quality. That's the thing, when he smiles until c.1974 and if his hair is blackened,  he looks vaguely like someone of his own age, but he obviously wasn't afraid to look old.

Golly! He looks like ex-Wales captain Sam Warburton.

When you have a kidney transplant, they don't actually remove the non-functioning kidney and just cram the new one in.

Is it like Indiana Jones where they quickly yank it out and replace it with a bag of sand?

No, they put an extra one in so you have three kidneys. If your existing kidneys are too fat to have space to fit the third one, they install it round the other side instead.

My cousin's ex has had a few kidney transplants but has neglected his health every time. Last time, they warned him they can't do it again because they're running out of space.

My mother had a kidney autotransplant before I was born, which involves taking a kidney out and connecting it up somewhere else. It was quite a new procedure at the time and we got a mention in The Lancet for it.

The last role Christopher Reeve had before he got cunted by a horse was as a paralysed, wheelchair-using cop in Above Suspicion.

And apparently they became really good, if amazingly unlikely, mates.  So much so that when Lynott died it pushed Crowther right over the edge, he started drinking again leading to his eventual demise, so I gather.

Not being funny or owt, but I always thought that was fairly well known.
It's Maya Rudolph being Minnie Ripperton's daughter that always gets me. She was a musician ( in a band called The Rentals) before she got into the old acting lark, y'know.
