Everyone knows that there were no double decker buses when the T. rex was around. :roll:

That is only a rumour. :hurry:

The existance of double-decker buses during the Jurassic period cannot be ruled out. :no:

It is at times like this that we need the adjudication of someone with specialist knowledge. Someone who has studied the matter in great detail. In fact, someone who was there at the time.

Are you there, Mr Tree? :bounce:

CT body scanners expose the patient to the same amount of radiation as was experienced within one and a half miles from the Hiroshima bomb. :terrified:

(If you can't cure the patients, then try and kill them.) :thumbd: :bash:

Chopin never composed anything that didn't have have a piano in it. :no:

Even his piano concerto had a piano in it. :o

This is even more remarkable when you realise that the piano wasn't even invented in the 1400s. :no:

The London Palladium was built by Britain's best ever theatre architect, Frank Matcham. Most of his theatres have now been demolished :thumbd: but the Palladium is one of the few to survive. His surviving theatres are now revered throughout the world and they are all listed buildings and must never be demolished. :no: :wag:

"With no formal training the Victorian architect Frank Matcham designed a staggering number of theatres correct across the UK to satisfy the public hunger for the delights of the music hall. Only 24 remain, but these opulent, gilded plaster palaces continue to transport theatregoers of all ages into a hidden world of fantastical glamour, and astonish actors with their unequalled acoustics and perfect sightlines." :clap: :clap: :clap: :yes:

In the late 70s, when there were only 24 Matcham theatres left and people realised what they had done, they all said: "Oops". :stop:

The London Palladium. :yes:

Plus I realised it was about time you dum-dums were educated about Frank Matcham and his unique status as Britain's finest Victorian theatre architect. :yes:
