This is a question Old stuff I still know

Our Ginger Fuhrer says that he could still code up a simple game idea in Amstrad Basic, while I'm your man if you ever need to rebuild the suspension on an Austin Allegro (1750 Equipe version). This stuff doesn't leave your mind - tell us about obsolete talents you still have.

More interestingly...
M Poubelle was the man responsible for introducing the dustbin to France, as you can read here.

I also remember poubelle is a dustbin
because when I was 15, I was on a French excahnge programme, and my personal frog told the following joke:

"Why are Belgian coffins round shaped?"


"Have you ever seen a square poubelle!?!"

"A what?"


"What's a poubelle?"

"Er, I think it's a dustbin"
