    “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.”

    I'd assumed an adapter for colonic irrigation based on the previous posts.

    Just had a look - it's a Vax Blade 4, with a spare battery, and it's a belter, I'm told. Only got it just after Christmas on a shopping spree, also getting a shitload of Ninja things for the kitchen. And just got back now with a new iron that doesn't have a dangly wire.

    These are things I have to do when building up to needing a new stylus for the 2M Black

    Not sure if you saw I had an issue with collapsed suspension on my new 2M Black stylus! However this was replaced by the dealer for another new stylus which looks way better and sounds superb.

    I would say using a Vax Blade 4 for record cleaning maybe a bit OTT!
