21st century etiquette- What do you say when a seventeen year old girl tells you she wants to be a porn star? I pointed out that she had to be a year older for it to be legal. I could have said that I had a camera if she had the time, but there are some things you can’t get away with at work.
So Raleigh bikes is closing its British factory. It’s a shame, I had a Chopper when I was younger, and a Chipper (or maybe a Tomahawk) and a Grifter, and probably one of their racing bikes as well. Something went horribly wrong for a while in the eighties, but then they started making quality mountain bikes. Though I guess there’s just not the volume in that to justify a big factory in Nottingham any more.
