    I look forward to more instalments. One can never be sure that one is up to date on these things.

    Section 1.1.1. was known, however it’s always good to be reminded.

    Re Section 1.3.8: what happens in the case of the serial backseat driver? This person clearly has no concept of The Social Contract and is categorically unable to Shut Up.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    Section 1.1 does not make provision for the correct handling of offering a seat on public transport to a young lady on account of “her condition” – which may well be a result of too many donuts. Would like to see an annex referencing this.
