    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    There’s a new advert for Co-op funerals where a lady explains her love of music and how she wants her funeral to reflect this. It ends with her adjusting a ‘volume knob’ to make her music louder.

    Please tell me I’m not the only one who spotted that the knob she twists is actually the record level control on a Technics cassette deck…

    She might be monitoring the recording level with a 3 head deck if she's really into music.

    Failing that, RADA really need to up the training on realistic operation of hifi if they want to produce convincing actors.

    I'm sure as far as the general public are concerned a knobs a knob, like Freddie Mercury using the pitch control on a 401 to control the volume

    You make a good point.

    However the other fly in the ointment is that she doesn’t actually appear to have an amplifier at all!

    Ah so it's all in her head then. Cue the man in the white coat approaching her cautiously with needle in hand. "Come along Miss Simpkins, it's time to go back to your room now, you've had enough fun for one day..."

    she's clearly a proponent of the 'less is more approach.' Getting rid of the amplifier means shorter signal paths and less components in the path.
