Yeah, no. I would not want to linger like that.

Ever used one of these?

Artur Fischer, inventor of the plastic wall plug / screw anchor, died Jan 27th aged 96.

Quote:
He also invented [synchronised] flash light photography as he saw an issue with the previously used magnesium flash.

He held over 1100 patents and overtook Thomas Alva Edison, who held 1093 patents. Fischer also held 5867 trade rights.

And Frank Finlay as well.

He was in 'The Sins' a few years ago with Pete Postlethwaite who took the lead role and he was cast as Uncle Irwin.

I remember one episode being based largely on his character and he was outstanding.

Frank Finlay

Surely the BBC, of all broadcasting organisations, should have got his name right.
It was corrected in short order.

This is a BBC website, so may not play overseas.
But it's Frank Finlay being given his Shakespearean head (as in a racehorse, not in a rude way) in the original Blackadder.

The man was a fine actor. And he eats up the pantomime villian role in The Witchsmeller Pursuivant. Which I think I know pretty much by heart.

When I finally get to the States, I'll amuse y'all (and family and friends) not just saying "Harry Potter" but also by with my Frank Finlay impression from this episode.
Except you'd have to watch it first.
