Iíve been tasked in organising a Christmas work night out for my team in Edinburgh. Weíve got a big department one the night before so weíre not fussed about the whole party venue night out.
18 months since Pet Peeves III.
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...

This isn’t about your favourite films, it’s about the ones you stumble across on any given night and once you start watching, you know you’ll be in to the end.
You maybe weren’t looking out for it but when you are scrolling through the EPG you find it’s on and it’s an automatic press of the...
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,...
Whats going on, is it usually this difficult to find a place to rent? I know its Festival time but I've been looking for months and months. Anything that is half decent gets snapped up instantly. Prices seem ridiculous whether on the outskirts or in the city centre. So many student flats aswell....
Some nice Hibs clips.
Went to see the Irish comedian Jason Byrne tonight. Hilarious. First thing he did was pick on Christophe Berra who was in the audience and slag the size of his heid!
Currently listening to Vienna and it got me thinking. What other classic songs didnít make it to the top of the charts.
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.
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)
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"
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)
Following on from the Beautiful Tracks thread, I thought of a few classical pieces that would fit the bill, but that thread went in a different direction, and anyway classical music is such a broad category I think it deserves a thread of its own. So, if you have a favourite classical tune or...
Turns out I've no work tomorrow so planning on taking my daughter out for the day. Anyone know if Scotrail still do the kids go free ticket. Trying to book tickets on my phone but not giving me that option so gonna just buy at the station if its still available.
At the suggestion of hibbyradge, here's the Movie Cliche thread.
One that drives me mad is when police go to interview a witness or someone who might know something, the person always carries on working while they talk to the police. The car mechanic fixing a car, the warehouseman loading boxes,...
Down: "The world tends towards chaos"
Up: "It will pass"
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.

Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
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....
Horse racing or even just horses, can't begin to understand the fascination with them.
Monarchists, some people seem to love the Windsors more than life itself, wtf is all that about?
Who has tickets to see DB this year?
The reviews are universally glowing.
"Best since Stop Making Sense".
"Might be the most ambitious and impressive live show of all time".
"The most meticulous production you'd ever hope to see."
What is the song that you feel defines you and the best years of your younger days, and why. Please be honest and donít put in a song because itís a cool tune.
For me itís feel the panic, by force mass motion. At the time I was massively into the dance scene. Iíd never heard of them before, but...
We're nearly halfway through the year so keen to find out:
Your favourite album of 2018 so far
Your favourite song of 2018 so far
Your favourite live gig of 2018 so far
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
Apologies if this isn't allowed. Hibeernian the Sunday amateur side born from Hibs.net members is still going strong. We're entering into our 11th season. This season we will be in the LEAFA Sunday morning league.

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...
I recently had Virgin Media installed and was surprised that the installation guy did not instal telephone sockets. Instead , there is a connector coming from the router that the phone plugs into.
No master sockets or extensions .
It is not connected to the telephone lines already in my house...

Do any dotnetters do this type of work, in Leith?
Has anyone had something similar done who can give me recommendation and an indication of the cost?
In the past I have thrown away anything battery operated where the batteries have leaked-corroded and the terminals of the device have become covered in a crust of battery acid type stuff. Just had the same happen with my son's tv remote. I decided to Google a remedy and discovered vinegar on a...
Just back home after the game and it looks like there is a massive fire burning, Iím guessing on the Braid Hills. The sky is orange.
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...
Looking for some help here.
My American-based cousin was born in the Western General in 1975. He's coming over soon, for the first time as an adult, and I'd like to show him where he was born.
None of the older members of the family can remember where the maternity unit was, and I haven't...
Anyone done this? We went last night for a works night out, was very good, enjoyable and fairly difficult but we managed it. Onto Brewhemia after it, was quite impressed in there too.
Stupidly , I fitted one of these self cutting tap kits years ago

I didnít know Dougie Vipond was the drummer in Deacon Blue, I thought he was just a presenter 😂
A friend of mine thinks one of his group can't go now so he'll have a spare.
I'm not sure how much he wants yet but I guess it'll be face value.
