Following on from the little mysteries needing an answer from the other day, here's another quandary that's been occupying my thoughts.
How on earth did Karl's friend get the biggest satelite dish in the world up that ladder to the roof of the Rovers? And was he expecting to pick up the footie from planet Neptune? Karl must have got that dish for a song because other than sekrit government installations, I doubt anyone uses that size anymore.
And how come the dish was blamed for interfering with Ken's telly and Streetcars' radio? Those things are *receivers* of signals, not senders. (But do correct me if I'm wrong, please and thank you!)
I also applaud St. Ella the Wonderwoman. In a matter of hours, Karl and Tez got that dish up the ladder and installed and they managed to horrify most of the punters and Stella who promptly chased Karl back up the ladder to take it down, and within minutes, removed said ladder and said she'd already sold it on eBay and he could stay there until the buyer came to collect it. It was gone by nightfall. So someone else had to shoulder it back down that flimsy ladder and all!
Sloppy and unbelievable.
