um, the usual consequences of playing with nitrous oxide. You'll not have
read Neal Stephenson's _Zodiac_, then?

This "laughing gas" used to be used by dentists, and besides its immediate
effect is a longer-term antidepressant.

It's nice to know that I might be able to replace my cane (which was stolen
about a year ago).

My beloved cane went with me to every wedding I attended. I usually dress in
comfortable/shabby clothes, and you can't get away with a scary stick with
them (also, where would I put it while cycling?).

ooh, tempting. I knew an Oxford physicist with a high-tech forge once, who
specialised in making stuff from spring steel (can't do that in a basic
forge). That, however, would definitely require capital.

I'd better get on with being a good supplier of pickles.
