    Staying up 30hrs is an ambition? Crikey... that's an average weekend!!! Doing it unassisted... that's a challenge

    The ones I've missed:

    1. I'm Scottish, I don't buy drinks, certainly not for a whole pub. That's just stupid.
    2. Dolphins... yeah, well, when they can work out how to use a corkscrew then I'll swim with one
    3. Ferrari... pah... posh FIAT
    4. Pyramid... do you have to pay to get in?
    11. Never bungeed, I've fallen off enough on rope that it doesn't have much appeal
    17. The leaning tower was shut when I was there
    22. Balloon... a bit floaty. Good place for a shag though I'd imagine.
    Can you imagine drifting along in the sea with your mouth open and a load of f***ing plankton going in? You'd like it, would you?
