Cheers for the above Lardy, hope the young 'un recovers soon.

Thanks, just an appendix out, which they did by keyhole surgery, I didn't know they did it like that.
 
They've been doing the keyhole surgery for the appendix for about 10 years, as a friend of the family had her's removed that way. My sister on the other hand has quite a scar from when she had her's removed back in the late 70s.
Glad to hear the young un is recovering

Had mine removed this method (3 entry points I guess) in 2000. Left nearly no marking whereas my mother looked like she wrestled with a chain saw in the 1950s.

Some serious injuries at Brands Hatch last weekend, no suggestion either is about to die, but doesn't look good either.

Saw this posted on the general deaths thread for the year:

I'm not clued up enough to know this but...

 

What's the average age of TT riders these days, because quite a few of the fatalities seem to be at the upper age limit end of competitive motor sports.

 

This is the sort of thing Lard would normally comment on....

 

She seems to have been missing recently.

 

Sorry, was on holiday for a week and my daughter's been in hospital the last few days. There were a few younger road racing losses last year including Karl Harris and Simon Andrews (not at the TT but the North West 200 road race).  It's a tricky one to call - your reflexes start going the older you get, but then some of the younger riders have no fear and take more risks.

Average age is probably 38/39, but due to the unique nature of the course age and experience usually outweighs youth and enthusiasm.
