i really dont see why people are supprised/shocked when this happened , he did drive cars like a loon for a living.

same with that crocodile hunting geezer , why were people so supprised when he died?
i was only supprised none of these accidents happened sooner.
 
what would be a real surprise is if hamond was eaten by a croc and steve was killed in a suberu,scuse spellin.

...said Nobber from the comfort of his armchair whilst clutching a warm coffee.
Photo one cleary shows tyre failure. How does "not driving like a loon" prevent that?
 
if he were maybe doing 30 he could of handled the car better. However he was doing 280mph so as nobber said if you push the boundaries then you can expect to have an accident. as for steve thingey-ma-bob.. i was surprised he didn't get eaten by a crock....I never knew he had a special place in his heart for stingray's
 
live by the sword , die by the sword.
im sure mr hammond , given the choice , would much rather die doing something he enjoys than pass away face down in a bowl of custard , like wise for the crock hunter bloke.
im not knocking either of them , id much rather see that smug git clarkson whos only tone of voice is that of a , well a smug git , crash at 280 mph.

sack clarkson and bring back kate humble.:)

mmmm Kate Humble.... she a fly honey! :D vicky butler-henderson has a certain something about her.. mind you i'd be interested in what sarah beeny has to say about the back of the landy :eek:
 
Sarah Beeny is ALWAYS pregnant though, on every TV show in the world ever! (even the one she wasn't in)!!

She must be able to populate Berkshire by now

Life involves risk. For these "stunts", a risk analysis is carried out and measures taken to reduce the risk and accommodate all eventualities.

Rescue crew, fire cover and paramedics all on hand indcate they were not skimping on safety. The tyre blow out was unfortunate but could have happened in a Perodua at a heady 30mph, causing it to swerve in front f a roadtrain, leaving no trace of its' existance.

well I have been busy! :D

rob i think it's more like "oh My!! that was a huge Load.......erm..... AREA ;) or.......what big round....wheels you have ;);) the back wheels are especialy impressive :D:D:D
 
Kate Humble and Sphie Rayworth are the only lady TV presenters we need. Can't see why everybody raves about Sarah Beenie, despite the impressive er, front elevation. It must be (and applies to VBH also) the deep, graveley voice gained from smoking tabs, and lots of 'em.

As my father once said about a mates wife "she's got a dirty voice that would make a nun drop dead at 20 yards."

well yes i agree here, bein one of the fire crew most of the times we do prepare for all eventualities. you can never expect things to go right. for instance, once we were stand by on set for the end of a series and in part of the last episode the house had to go ablaze. anyway, cuttin a long story short, just before my OIC (Officer In Command) was walkin in to set the fire up, i ordered 2 teams to kit up in full B.A. and ready for SAR with thermal cameras. one of the crew came up to me and said "why all this showin off? its just a small fire and some smoke!!" and i remained quiet. basically after the scene, all actors were out apart from 1, 2 min pass, she aint out yet so i commit both teams in (1 left hand search, the other right hand) and they find her unconscious. they checked her and dragged her out and we had a resusitator (or however u spell it) ready unpacked waitin for her, she got out, we put resus on her, got her in ambulance (and handed over since they were on site too) and she left. she recovered within a few hours, basically she suffered badly from asthma.

i wrote this whole story basically to show that measures are always taken. it just depends on how far people want to take a risk, but having crews onsite is the golden rule really. once it happens, u seen it happen, u can act accordingly and much better then if u were called out and things are related to u, and by the time you'd still be blastin the blues and twos in some busy road, you'd actually have this person thats loosin his life on his way to hospital with life support. its not richard's fault really, he was just keepin his job, BBC had the health and safety officers draught up a report and services were called in. if such services weren't called in most probably at the moment its his funeral we're all hearin about not about his apperances and that he remembers nothin
 
Kate Humble is definitely 'thinking man's crumpet', as is her sidekick on Rough Science; the rather bubbly brunette - Professor of Ergonomics or something at Bristol Uni. Very, very tasty. VBH? Yes, neat, tidy, probably better driver than she's given credit for (as is Clarkson incidently), but not conventionally 'Babe'. Jody Foster now .......... :D

As I've said many times before, Claire Barrett from the Brighton Engineerium and 'Salvage Squad' is my ideal Babe. Classic English Rose -good with an angle grinder and a gas axe.:)

Roger.
