Well, I think we're keeping "up" to the standard in this thread, at least now we've got the awkward factual stuff out of the way :D

Pointless gravel sounds a good idea, it won't hurt your bare feet :)

Pointless gravel is pebbles, which is what the OP wanted - and so we come full circle.

There are numerous pebble beaches around the country, they are an important part of the slowing of coastal erosion but they do look great in japanese style gardens......

Unlike most 1sf (troll) threads, which go round in circles :(

This, to me anyway, sounded like Cliff, the postman from Cheers.

I liked Cliff's explanation of why beer makes you more intelligent :)

Of course beer makes you more intelligent. That's how I got my PhD.

But I've forgotten Cliff's explanation of this well-known empirical observation. (Probably due to the alcohol having destroyed the crucial brain cells.) Could we be reminded of it?
