    At the risk of being upopular here; good riddance to the kevlar monstosity!! One less on the roads! In reality though, it'll just go back, be fixed to perfection and probably be back on the road in no time.

    Stig,

    I'm surprised at you, It may not be a classic, it may not be pretty, (IMO), but it's still a real shame when any Stallion is hurt and in this case probably had it's life cut very short indeed.

    Just my tuppence,

    Got a word for you - Fluviatile ?

    ATB,

    Steve

    Steve,

    Normally, I would agree with you, but the Enzo is so horrid, Try as I might I just cannot bring myself to care. It looks too much like something that comes from a first year car design student at the University of Yokohama. Too much Rising Sun, and not enough Prancing Horse if you see what I mean.

    I guess it's also part of my method to rationalise dissatisfaction. In any group of objects, there are some I like, some I don't like, and some to which I feel indifferent. I find if I vent my spleen on just one, it has a healing effect on all the others. A fine example of this is vegetables; I'm no great lover of green stuff, but If I vent all my herbivourous animosity onto one veggie (peas), then I can enjoy, or at lest toerate all other vegetables. Weird maybe, but that's asmill insigt into the World of Sletti!

    So for me

    ENZO = PEAS

    PEAS = BAD

    ENZO = BAD

    PEAS - PEAS = GOOD

    ENZO + DAMAGE = GOOD

    ENZO + DAMAGE + ANIHILATION OF ALL PEA SPECIES = NIRVANA

    Fluviatile is indeed a beautiful word, but truly my favourie is "pleonastic".

    "fulviaphile" - fantastic definition. One of whilch I have been guilty. I owned this one for a few years sometime in the last millenium!!

    OK, I think I understand your exposition for the pea thing, i feel the same about cabbage,

    When you say your favourite word is "Pleonastic" - Is this the mineralogical definition or the psychiatric definition ?

    We may have to move our ramblings to the Off Topic forum ?

    Sorry guys,

    Steve

    The only definition that I am aware of is, "the use of more words than are required to express an idea" (something of which I am often to be found guilty of).

    I'n not aware if a mineralogical definition; please enlighten me.

    No, never, if it does onto "off topic" I'll never look at it' too many posts, too much turnover, I'll just get lost...

    Regards

    Stig
