The Great Kontiki Bright light show (how to guide)

Oh yes all you doubters!!!! Today I have replaced the knackered old bathroom light with my nuclear powered LED strip light.

As it was a highly technical job I decided to document it with an informative "How to" video. No, dont thank me.

The people who passed off a pair of gloves as *two* items of PPE may not be entirely honest.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

This is what I bought. The original dual Lumo fittings with fluorescent tubes were £30 and of course old hat.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LED-12-VO...72.m2749.l2649

Sadly it looks like I got the last one.

Bit of 3m Velcro on the back, couple of crimpers. Bobs yer uncle!!

Trouble is ill now be able to see just how sh1t I look on a morning.

Only if:

1. You open your eyes

2. You turn the thing on....

So, your chances of you being able to see how sh1t you look are only one in four.

NB I am not a stats specialist....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Well, I suggest you don't enter the boghouse in afternoon or evening as you'll get a nasty surprise!

And fancy self-adhesive velcro appearing in your DIY efforts.

Its not "Velcro" though really is it? Its industrial strength 3m "Special fixing" (or summat). I swear by it I tell yah! Just to prove how good it is if we meet up in the lakes again ill stick a load onto your jacket and "fix" you to the side of the Bridge over the River Eamont. If you fall off, ill buy the drinks!

WTF Are you on about!! I bought you a great big bottle of Gin at the airport when I came to see you!

Fair enough, the flight got cancelled and I was forced to drink it before I could get back on it the next day but the thought was there! It wasnt an easy decision. I sat there in the airport hotel in me undercrackers staring at your gin, knowing I wouldnt get it back through security the next day and just thought "its what he would have wanted".
