The Bar & Grill / I know what they mean, but...

The local health club/gym are advertising memberships.  As is often the case 'advertising english' is a little different from reality or convention.

Apparently they have either a time machine, or some form of 'time compression' allowing a ludicrously compact experience.  How do I know this?

'Try a three month membership today.'

Our local media was gaga over it ;D

Maybe it's due to the risk of hackers getting into the system and telling pilots to land on Kensington High Street...

Anyone with a police scanner can listen in... volunteers from around the world hook these scanners into Liveatc...

Obviously for reasons of security it's highly illegal for us citizens to talk on these frequencies

Good grief!  It adds a whole new meaning to the term physiotherapy, doesn't it?  I hope it works out for her.

I believe this specialist is either for her heart or lungs

sesquipedalian

(One of those words you don't get to use every day.  Rather like 'sesquiplane', which comes from the same linguistic stable.)

encourage

(As in, "It was necessary to encourage the stuck bearing off the shaft with a few judicious taps from a 14lb sledgehammer.  Although a perfectly acceptable workshop technique it's best not to let the owner see you doing this with £1000,000 supercar."
