But today we got a big article about what Rex thinks of
Mentorns safety procedures.
Phew... Its pretty juicy stuff. I'll see if the EADT puts
any articles online... their website is www.ecn.co.uk
if you want a peek.
Did this appear in any other paper?
I'd like to read that article.

Hm... I know a lot of kids watch it but how many of those can fork out a few
hundred quid and the time and effort needed to build a robot? A lot of the
people I've talked to who've seen maybe half an episode, have thought the
robots were basically radio controlled cars with saws and stuff added on,
and most of them were rather shocked when I informed them that the average
robot weighed more than an adult and was about 3 to 4 foot long. OK the
Antweights in particular are tiny and easy to make and (usually) operate,
but the heavyweighs and the new half-ton class I heard about somewhere can
actually be extremely complex bits of machinery. Also it's the old "model
builder syndrome" - "you build robots which are supposed to destroy each
other? You're wierd!" and they dismiss you without thinking how much time,
effort and money goes into those robots. I remember after the documentary
program on how they make Robot wars last new year (in the middle of series
2) Mark Lamarr said "OK now we know how they make Robot wars, what we need
now is a program explaining Why they make Robot wars". KILL KILL KILL... ;-)
