Ninety Percent of Everything

And along the way he's discovered: • The safest place to be in the event of nuclear war • Who would win if Superman, James Bond and The Terminator had a fight • The stupidest person he's ever met • What an old Cornish institution called Arthur has to do with 0898 chat lines ...
