Is a restaurant where all the eating implements are golf clubs (full-sized, not miniature versions) a good idea?

It's an intriguing idea that's for sure, I mean who hasn't wanted to eat out in public using only golf clubs? However, I just can't see it working as a business model so I'm out.



You've not thought this through, as an investor, how would this business make me any money? I'm sorry, I admire your bravery coming on here wearing that shirt, but I can't invest in this.



Have you patented that? What is to stop me from going out and opening my own chain of Golf-Club-Cutlery Restaurants tomorrow? Ahhhm oot.



Even though I clearly model myself on Cruella Deville I wouldn't invest in that luv. I'm out.



I have no idea what I'm doing and I never invest anyway, so yeah, what they said.

Referring to obscure TV shows, I see?

Is Dragon's Den not widely known outside the UK?

AHA! Wikipedia tells me it is the UK version of Leijonan kita.

It's pretty popular over here (at least ratings wise) and I assumed the UK version would be shown in other European Countries? My English arrogance simply will not let me believe otherwise!



God bless you your majesty!

We had something similar here in the Netherlands but not nearly as popular as DD in the UK.

Yeah, pretty much the same here.

(I did actually recognize that it was some sort of original version of the Finnish show, but then I've never watched the Finnish one either. It just ran a few ads at some point some time ago)

I once was in Cambridge at the University for a few days for work. It was just after we had gotten the Euro (Ä) and our British colleagues were very curious to this new money we had. So I showed a Euro coin, and I said: "Look, that's our queen. She looks a bit like a cauliflower." And my British colleague answered: "Isn't it a bit rude to call your queen a cauliflower?"

I liked that.

I never used to think of myself as a royalist but a couple of events made me realise that I am.

1.



If I had been there I would have run Mrs Obama through with a pike before I'd even thought about it.

2.

A few years ago Prince William took an RAF helicopter just to pick up his girlfriend (now wife) to try and impress her at a heavy cost to the taxpayer. The press asked the question "Is this how we want our royalty to behave?" Immediately I knew that this is exactly the sort of thing I think our royalty should do. If we're going to have a monarchy then they should be doing ridiculous things at great expense to their subects just to impress girls or generally for the lulz - that is a real traditional British King in the making and there is great historical precedent for it.

Damn straight there is - it made a huge fuss back in the day when Henry VII picked up Elizabeth of York with a Comanche. And we all know the reason Henry VI was stabbed in the head was because he took the Typhoon for a joyride around Wales.

Maybe the Queens of Holland and Britain could organize it so that Willem-Alexander and William can be crowned on the same day. That would be so cool! Of course this means we have to get rid of Charles somehow... Hmmm I wonder...

Life is tough, Third. Deal with it.

That reminds me of a song by Andrť Hazes: Little Boy. Translation by Google:

little boy
You're in this world so you will have to fight like me
I should know
Life is not easy
There is adversity at any time

little boy
There are many good people
But unfortunately there are bad 'tis true
You have to think about:
That you will soon realize
This fair will last longer trust me

chorus:

This life will pass
There has been little time so happy, because you're free
But do it wisely make the people happy
Then you'll really be happy
Because life is so short
Many things are different when you get older
You are still in boxes but not for long
It is unfortunate but it does not remain small

little boy
At school you will notice that everything revolves around numbers and power
That's life
So learn what you need to learn
Because then you're not the last who laughs

little boy
then when you grow up
then maybe your father is no longer
tell your own children the lessons of how your old man
