It IS great fun, and so is fast driving. You shouldn't do the latter on
public roads, and you shouldn't do MD without a responsible attitude to

My first experience was at the age of six (in 1943), at a local 'fair' -
a 'circus' organized to amuse the populace at a very unamusing time -
being allowed to try to detect mines buried in a sandpit at the Army
