We could experience some of the events together. :)

I'll be there all three days, plus an extra day, which I want to either use to just take in the museum (so I can focus on the events on the other days) or look around the area a bit.

I'll be at a little B&B in walking distance of both the Wool train station and the museum (1/2 to 3/4 hour to museum).

Thanks, Syt. Sounds good.

Ill PM you my contact details in a while, though please don't alter you plans for me, as currently I can't be certain what's happening in the short term here.

No worries. It's still 10 months away, so all good. :)

Vegas isn't in Vegas.

The Vegas thing is cool.

But this guy who does these videos is simply brilliant.

Seriously - he has a gift for presenting interesting, and sometimes pretty complex, topics in a easy to understand, and more importantly, interesting and engaging manner.

CGP Grey is indeed awesome. I'd wish he'd do more stuff, but lately he only puts up a video every few months.

I suspect that his capacity for putting out awesome videos is pretty closely related to the fact that he only puts out a video every few months. If he wanted, he could probably do 1 a month at the same level of quality, but I'm rather happy with his current output.

If you want a shorter, more Britisher presenter that's not quite as high quality, but does similar subjects in interesting ways, see Tom Scott: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBa659QWEk1AI4Tg--mrJ2A
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.
