Headlines that lead you to the wrong conclusion.

Vanhu vane huwandu hukuru hwevanhu vasingazive zvatiri kutoita (izvo zvinosanganisira vanhu, zvimwe zvipenyu, prosthesis uye akawanda maturusi anowedzera kugona kwedu). Kana tikabvuma kuti kugona kwedu kuungana nekukatanura, tinofanirwa kubvuma kuti kunzwisisa kwesainzi uye tekinoroji kunowedzera nekukurumidza, munhu wepakati kunzwisisa anodzikira nechiyero chakaenzana.

Maitiro akadaro zvakajeka anosanganisira njodzi kune iyo democracy.

We're used to the occasional Grahame typo, but this reveals hidden talents!

Googletranslate tells me this is Shona for:
Quote
People with large numbers of people are unaware of what we are already doing (which includes humans, other organisms, prostheses and many other tools that increase our capacity). If we accept that our ability to assemble and disperse, we must acknowledge that scientific and technological understanding increases rapidly, middle-class understanding decreases at the same rate. And this creates a growing gap between more and more paid executives who understand and design. Such practices clearly pose a threat to the democracy.
Must go now, got to catch the last train from Bulawayo to Gaborone.  Smiley

Was very nice the last time I did that though fourth class looked a bit spartan. However, being Mashona, your journey is more likely to be between Harare and Mutare Smiley

The breadth of knowledge and experience here in the Coffee Shop never ceases to amaze me.

(I can advise on Blackpool trams if anyone needs help. Also Bedminster to Parson Street.)

As you can help with Bedminster and Parson St stations are there ANY through trains from Bedminster or Parson Street to Penzance?
I know the 10:50 Penzance to  Cardiff Central M-F calls at both Bedminster and Parson Street.
