The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.
I hate when temporary roadwork signs are left up when they are not...
Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
Just wondered what people had been too see at the flicks as of late?
I went and saw The Purge last night and thought it was very good.
Earth to Echo today and I was gutted it didn't live up to the expectation.
Transformers - good, knew what I was getting
22 jump street - poor
My wife and I are having a long weekend in Edinburgh over the 13th-15th of July (rare babysitting!).
I'm in Edinburgh often enough with work, and have my "usual" haunts but I was wondering if the expertise of hibs.net might provide some recommendations on:
i) a nice restaurant somewhere...
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
I sometimes watch Salvage Hunters on quest. For some reason I feel this rage build up when the trevento wine advert comes on at the start and ad breaks. A group of ****y blokes lauding each other for the challenges they faced in their hobbies(?).
Doesn't make me drink the wine as much as put a...
Right now we are getting into the dark nights what's the best tv series to watch right now ?.. I'm already on Leftovers but your only getting 1 episode a week..Im looking to power through a box set or 2 in a week :greengrin
Cannae watch Game of thrones as i powered through series 1-3 whilst...
I live next to the ferryboat which is quite rough like, what are the worst pubs in Edinburgh in your opinion?
Obviously the muppet show is the daddy
Is there any connection between these two? They're the same age and grew up in the same neck of the woods, I think? I've just been watching a clip of Capaldi telling a tale on the radio and was struck by how his mannerisms put me in mind of Liam chatting on the Time For Heroes DVD. Are they pals?
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
Moving house at the end of the month and I'm going to create a Pub Shed. Has anyone else got one, been to one etc?
Very open to suggestions and ideas.
Needing name suggestions, it's going to be Hibernian related.
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...
Moved house recently, I'm in Ayrshire, can't get a kitchen wrapper for love nor money, they don't get back to me, haven't turned up for the quotes, too busy, blah blah blah!
Seriously considering going on a wrapping course to get set up with a wee side earner, anyone any experience of doing it?...
Has anyone done this and added fake grass on top? Iíve just jumped the wall and got 6 pallets from builders i also got some fake grass from lidl (where else!). Just gonna stack 2 up 3 along and cover the top. Was just wondering if anyone had done similar and what would you put between the grass...
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
We had a cat who used to follow us along the street. He was called Sid. Black and white. Lovely animal actually.
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington
Nov 10 - Coldplay,...
With the exception of admins, the last person to post on this thread is the all time greatest Hibs fan.
Childish I know but what the hell :devil:
Ive been caught in the trap over the past few years of always looking for the next thing & kinda neglecting the music Ive loved for years. So if this thread has already been done fel free to delete but whats currently getting airplay from you?
This week for me is Ride - Nowhere (probably my...
A couple of posts on the Holy Ground got me thinking about starting this thread. So, what music books have you read that you would recommend?
Iíll kick off the recommendations
Young Soul Rebels (Stuart Cosgrove) - the Northern Soul scene.
Detroit 67 (Stuart Cosgrove) - the first of a...
Watched the 1st half of Inception and my head is suitably scrambled so far! 😜
Im going to be spending a lot of time doing work on a house and garden this winter and I'm after recommendations of good podcasts. Any subject.
Things I've been listening to recently include Totally Football Show on Spotify. James Richardson is my favourite pundit, he's just left the guardian...
Thereís been loads over the years but whatís your favourite. I love this one
There's been a couple of threads like this before but you can't beat a good discussion about beer.
Currently a huge fan of:
William Bros Seven Giraffes
Timothy Taylor Landlord
Cairngorm Trade Winds
Stewart Pentland IPA
Fallen Smokehouse Porter
Have seen big billboards all over town for the upcoming Elections on May 23rd
I've never voted in the European Elections before, and haven't had anything through the post or seen any materials around the city.
Does anyone have any links as to where I can find out info around the candidates,...
Can anyone recommend one. The current one never gets back to us without numerous calls and emails. It's chronic.
I heard “The Lebanon” by The Human League today for the first time in ages. In fact, I can’t have heard it since I was wee, otherwise i’d have been aware before now just how terrible the lyrics are. It’s like a 14 year old’s poem. Cracking tune - simple, but great bass line and thrilling guitar...
The Levellers 15 Years popped up on my Spotify and it got me thinking of the best opening lines in songs. Iím a big fan of this one and ďI never was a violent man said the man at the bar with his head in his hands.Ē
It got me thinking of other great openings in songs. I love Aftershow from The...
After 30 years of working in an office environment I'll soon be starting a job working from home.
Any tips on how not to go mad (all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy)
I've thought about maybe renting a hot desk somewhere if I don't like it, anyone have experience of this?
Found this list of available artists from a booking agent in 1969 of what looks very affordable in 2019, but what would have been a decent wedge back in the late 60ís. Who are you booking?
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple
Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
Wtf are they all about? I just don't get why they think they'll encourage folk to open an account.
Ok, I'm getting slightly irked about folk saying all the restaurants in the thread are great 😎 so how about a thread that's all about Shan ones...in folks opinion of course!
Chop House in market Street is horrendously overrated, tiny lunch portions and poor service.
A new game!!!
I will start by saying the name of a song, the next person then has to name a song title which uses a word from the prebvious title.
E.g Sunshine on Leith (proclaimers)- I'm walking on Sunshine
ill start - The Boys of Summer
(Try not to link words like "The"
Today I tried to do one of these old fashioned things of paying in cash and buying a stamp to post a letter.
Had letter in hand but didnít have a stamp. Thinking I donít want to buy a single stamp and pay by a debit card Iíll get some cash from the ATM. First machine I go to, not got any cash,...
Hopefully the season for long sessions in the garden accompanied by barbecue food is just around the corner. Just invested in a bigger oil drum type and looking for some tips and ideas to cook on it.
Been doing the same, sausages, burgers, kebabs and steak for years.
What does everyone else do?
