Background: Phil Haines appears in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's youngest man to travel every country in the world. He runs Live-travel a small bespoke tour operator, which takes people to the likes of North Korea, Iraq and Libya (Yes, really). And he has a regular writing gig at The Independent on Sunday.

Whenever your inane reponses are published in the Independent on Sunday, they are always accompanied by the sad, pathetic boast that you are the youngest person to have visited every country in the world. So what, and who gives a fuck? You are clearly under the mistaken impression that this makes you some kind of super-hero qualified to pass judgement on anything and everything.

Do you not actually realise that this kind of pathetic egotistical bragging has, in fact, precisely the opposite effect. All it does is make you appear like a sad trainspotting pompous smart alick know-it-all anorak. You really are quite pathetic. Get a life.
