    No, I am slightly older than that ( I am afraid to say). Very good though, half a chocky bar for you for effort!

Now excuse me while I go lie down <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23> as I am suddenly feeling quite old.

    Mickey,

    Unless you offer a bit more of a clue it's not going to be much of a puzzle, we all get to list things invented in 1981 till someone guesses right.
    Why don't you give us some kind of cryptic clue to eliminate the wrong answers?
