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.

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

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.

Bunne Rabb : If you let electronics do your thinking for you, you should stop trying to pimp the notion that doing so makes you smarter than people who can and do think for themselves.

noahs trucks : He's like a very polite karl Pilkington..

Gewel ✔ : Some people listen to music I listen to James May

Zoltán Kozma : James, your hair is not greenscreen compatible I'm afraid :)
