    I didn't click on the link due to lack of pre-explainer in the op. Hoped you had provided one. 🙁

    So I checked with wiki and now know what knob throwing is. I still don't know why you offered the link.

    It was in case anyone had missed it.

    I wouldn't want you turning up at the wrong venue next year!!!

    I gave that a thumb's up. Because, if nothing else, at least I understood your usage.

    I dunno. I have an aversion to clicking random links. I think if we offer a link, we should give a reason for doing so, at the least. Probably we should give sort of a synopsis of what to expect as well. Am I all alone here?

    Long live knob-throwing! And all other regional cultural silly stuff!

    True, though if I trust the poster I tend to click the link.

    Would you be interested in a time-share in Marbella?
