Todd Moon : This is actually priceless. Reaffirming my views and some tons of laughs. Keep up the good work James. Your reassembler show. Our great ideas series. It never ends.

vdochev : Man, I can listen May for hours! He's a very smooth story teller with a subtle sense of humor.

autohmae : The sat nav part really reminded me of this: "General, you are listening to a machine. Do the world a favor and don't act like one." -- Dr. Stephen Falken, "WarGames" (1983)

Alec Denholm : The 'gold paint'/'skin needs to breath' thing is bollocks as proven by Mythbusters.

Aesthetical : this got me to sleep real quick after a bout of insomnia, thanks james

TrotelHD : The funniest thing about the Satellite navigation I find is the phrase: This route contains traffic disruptions. Thank you Pieck. I saw that you were to busy with law suits about your fake diesel emissions while designing the Volkswagen Passat, B8, Variant, pre facelift.

Hologrampizza : I could listen to James May talk for hours.

Fred Schriks : Could listen to this all day. May is brilliant.

Thomas Gosling : You can break ribs after being shot at by a 45ACP from 5 feet whilst wearing even modern body armour

docthebiker : But I DO get a Map James. I use google maps on my PC. I can see the destination in relation to where I am. Zoom in and out. Streetview the destination (so I recognise it when I get there) and preview turn offs. It tells me how far I'm going and if I think I need petrol in my bike on the way, it even tells where I can get it. Even where I can stop for a brew and a fag (and know if they do a good brew from the reviews). Then get it sent to my device. Ya don't get that on paper maps. Oh! and I'm your age James. Don't knock the technology. Just the idiots who trust it blindly.

ukspizzaman : There is a narrow winding road close to me, steep downhill, where foreign trailers get stuck on a daily basis. It is impossible for them to get out of there without a salvage truck. There is a sign there in multiple languages that tells drivers to ignore their satnav, dont go there, follow the main road or you will get stuck.. but still.. they do. Because satnav told them so.

Alison Kenyon : I could listen to James May speak all day long. Oh wait, I have done. Once I was working on a colossal painting project in a warehouse space, and put a string of these on my wi-fi speaker and let his dulcid tones soothe my mind through the entire project.

popuptoaster : I do like James waffling but some of his "general knowledge" is based on urban legend rather than facts. It's still a nice comforting drone of info though. :)

Vector Corbin : perfect material for dozing off to
