Sure is sad, he used to be a funny geezer, i read he had a friendly rivalry with noel edmunds back in the day, funny how one of em gets another shot at his career, the other disapears from tv all together. the dude did do alot of work for charity tho, mate!
in all seriousness, a little something which i think puts all our lives in perspective.
"in a great flat desert there's a huge mountain, the highest in the world. it stands there immense and unconquerable. once every thousand years, a little brown bird flies across the desert and lands on the top most peak of the mountain. it wipes it's bill briefly on the stone, one-two, one-two, and then flies away for another thousand years. When the bird has ground the mountain down as flat as the desert all around with it's bill, then one second of eternity will have passed."
