They've found a piano buried in a cairn on Ben Nevis. Ben Nevis is Britain's highest mountain. Just sit and think about that for a moment. A piano.

How bizarre! Why would anyone think people'd be able to hear them if they were playing the piano at the top of Ben Nevis? They'd be far better off doing it somewhere like Liverpool Station, where audiences could hear and appreciate them properly.

Besides, in the cold thin air at the top of Ben Nevis you'd constantly be having to retune your piano. What a bore! The whole idea's preposterous!

What will they think of next?

You sound oddly unsurprised to hear this news. Admit it: you're the Phantom Pianist Of Ben Nevis, aren't you.

And todays little factoid- I climbed Ben Nevis when i was 8, with my dad. It was July, I think, and there was still a little bit of snow on the top. It took something like 4 hours.

I did Ben Lawers a couple of times when I was at school (I know, just a pimple in comparison) and it took us about four hours each time. And I enjoyed every minute, even the year it pelted down with rain. I loved that place.
