i'm gonna be (100000 miles)

Somewhere between Membury services and the Newbury junction on Saturday my car ticked its way over into six figures. At the risk of a horrendous pile-up of sharp fiery twisted metallic death I got Hazel to snap a couple of iPhone pics to capture the historic moment:

Needless to say the resale value of my car has now halved, but never mind. It had about 61,000 on the clock when I bought it, so given that that was two years and two months ago to the day that means an average of 49.3 miles per day.

Today I will be mostly breaking the speed limit, getting Hazel to capture the evidence, then posting it on the internet for everyone to see. Livin' on the edge!

What you're experiencing there is some sort of parallax error, I think. Or possibly some sort of relativistic time dilation effect.

Can I also just add: no bastard copper's taking me alive.
