Zeaphod 10/11 - 200 per cent, reference litter Rocky-ish and thereabouts. I like your idea about people taking litter home; I myself favour the disembowelling procedure for the perps, followed by feeding their miserable carcasses to the beetles. Alas, it being November, it is no longer suitable to stand naked with a bottle of fortified wine, so they've slipped through our hands again for another year - however if we start digging pits now, we'll be ready for next Spring. What do you think ? Incidentally, sorry about Goofy enroute to Bloody Bridge carpark or anywhere: I had him a week or so back and it's my fault for pointing him in the right direction - quite the wrong thing to do.
