Re Swede faces world-record $1m speeding penalty. That's a turnip for the books? Please let me know how many squillion other people wrote in with the same comment.

Thank God you told us this was a "computer illustration". I for one was concerned they'd actually found something before I read that...(!)

"Marx is on the right" - now there's something you don't read very often.
Just as the acronym for the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons never fails to raise a smile, nor does the onomatopoeic and percussive acronym for the British Association of Anger Management.

Alan (Thursday letters), I think you might find quite a lot of people questioning your assertion that computers were developed in Japan. Ever heard of Colossus, Ferranti, English electric, ICL, IBM .......
Re Alan's reasoning for numbers on a calculator (Thursday letters), I'm afraid mass pedantry has just built up in me. Japanese is read with the characters, top to bottom, and lines read right to left (cf. English, left to right and top to bottom respectively). But numbers used day to day in Japan are Arabic and even then Japanese numbers are not read right-to-left. Otherwise calculators would read 987 - 654 - 321 - 0! I'll get my 67 79 65 84.

All this talk of calculators gives fond childhood memories of 5318008 and suchlike.

Yes! 6/7 in the news quiz! That's my highest score ever and totally makes up for finding a maggot in my grapes this morning.
