It knocked the crap out of my old man so I'd be surprised if it didn't have an effect.

His legs were the worst affected.

Re: SWALLOWS - Are they in lockdown?

They can bugger off.

My Teckel hates the things and they drive him mental, swooping in front of him till he falls over foaming at the mouth from trying to catch them haha.

Simple reason

Car drivers assume they own the roads so any reason they can find for killing someone else is valid.
