Dr Who makes Chevette famous

Postby Wyke » 15 May 2005, 23:00

Did not see it all but my son called me down to see a Chevette GLS playing a major role in last nights Dr Who - it knocked Bill Pipers Dad over !

Is that the only way to get a decent classic - time travel ?

I think that Chevette isn't the only thing caught in a loop.

This is like the Star Trek episode called 'cause and effect' where Picard and the enterprise keep going round the same time loop.

There is a theory of the moebius. A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.

Man's brain can have no concept of a timeless existence, or that of perpetuity. For someone to have come up with a theory essentially explaining such a concept is a tad ridiculous. How, for instance, did they assess a criterium that led to the formulation of such a hypothesis? Is it just me, or do eminent scientists and astrophysicists just sit around all day drinking strong coffee and liberal quantities of alcohol?

Do I feel a rendition of the philosopher's song coming on?

Peter is a guy from englandshire who emailed me some pictures of his chevette with a description of how he came to be in possession of it, plus his plans for it. He plans to give the little car a thorough freshen up to showroom condition with no modifications (yay), and seeing as it is a GLS it should be very nice too. Don't think he is a member on here, but he hasn't got back to me since I put the pictures on my website.

Oh well good for him, it's a very nice looking little chevette. I like the contrast of the paint and the interior. An ideal addition to the forum should he ever feel like joining.

I'll drop him another email to see how he is getting on, I'm wondering now actually if he is a member of the COG? I wonder how he got my contact details. Anyway, I'm sure he will be glad to join such a bunch of effervescent guys and gals.

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.

Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table.

David Hume could out-consume
Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, [some versions have 'Schopenhauer and Hegel']

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.

There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya
'Bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

Plato, they say, could stick it away--
Half a crate of whisky every day.

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle.
Hobbes was fond of his dram,

And René Descartes was a drunken fart.
'I drink, therefore I am.'

Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed.

It would be nice if he could bring me back my car from 10th Feb 1983, the day before it was registered. In that case I could waxoyl it all over and send it back to it's new owner, meaning it would be slightly less rusty now.
