Suspension from Yahoo

I have just been suspended from Yahoo answers, oh the shame , I’ll never hold my head up in the RAC Club again.

My girlfriend encouraged me to give some answers on Yahoo answers but it seems I have inadvertently upset the Americans, it appears from their reaction that I have accidentally started World War Three.

My error was to answer a question which asked about protons and neutrons etc to which my answer was; ‘I’m damned if I know the answer as nuclear physics never was my strong subject’.

Whilst this may not have been the answer they were looking for it was, at least from my point of view an honest one but it seems that I have upset Yahoo who have misinterpreted my slightly sarcastic answers; translation from English to American is always fraught with disaster.

Take for example the message sent by the British in 1939; ‘Help, the Second World War has started’. It took until December 1941 for this message to get through and even then needed a gentle reminder from the Japanese when they bombed Pearl Harbour.

I am now, as you may know a ruddy faced countrman blissfully happy in my rural idyll not wishing to upset anyone.

I hope this little misunderstanding with Yahoo will be corrected as soon as possible and I can get back to sharing my knowledge with people from all over the world; I was just beginning to enjoy it!

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
