    Who's checking the oil and tyres and don't tell me 'What' or 'Idaknow' either...this is serious stuff......I don't like the sound of 'things' falling off even before they 'Hit the Gas'.........If I was in that capsule there would be a decidedly odd odour and my visor would be increasingly difficult to see out of.........
