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...
I've got some German friends coming over to Edinburgh for the marathon next week and one of them wants to try haggis. They're staying at Seaton Sands and I was wondering if anyone knows a decent place to eat haggis?
Was there a thread about this already?
I thought there was but I can't find it. Maybe I imagined it.
Anyway, Liz Kershaw is getting folk to tell her about songs they sand the wrong words to and a guy just phoned in with the best I've heard for a while.
He thought Feargal Sharkey sang "A...
Anyone gone through Dublin to US?
Customs preclearance on this side sounds great (especially after the hideous queus6 at Atlanta last year)
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)
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,...
You don't know where you'll end up seated but £30.
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)
It's incredible how this has caused so much disagreement. A bit like the Gold/White or Blue/Black dress.
It's incredible. Without telling my wife what I hear, I played the clip to her.
She hears the opposite to me.
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.
Without mentioning what was being promoted, I shouldn't have had to say... :wink:
Theres been literally thousands of remixes of original songs, some have ended up being more successful than the original.
Whats everyoneís favourite. Iíll start with an obvious one in run dmc

All the stars that never where are parking cars and pumping gas.
Dione Warwick - do you know the way to San Jose
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.
PC Alfiembra suggested we need a thread for this subject alone so here it is.
I may as well kick off ......
Who's/Whose going next?
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 have booked a holiday through OntheBeach which is flying with Ryanair.
The balance has been paid and we are looking forward to it.
Will I still be asked for extra money for us to sit together when I check in for the flight ?
I know that this happens (to me) on single flights I have booked...
I've just been in B&Q.
I've no idea as to why, but I really like the smell of that place.
In fact, I'm still sitting in their car park so I think I'll pop back in for another ming at it.
(Also to buy a specialist bulb, the price of which I previously balked at.)
Place: Rannoch Moor
Hot or a pain in the Bonnington Toll?
My son is getting group lessons at his school and it made me remember my old electric acoustic guitar in the garage that hadn't been played for about 17 years. We used to go down to original banana row back in the day and thrash about (very badly!)
Anyway, I decided to get it repaired again and...
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...

Sellic fan took no well at the recent derby..nurse says to him Have you seen a surgeon?
Sellic fan says I didn't see the second yin 😂😂😂
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...
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.
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.
Since just about everything we do these days requires a password or a pin number, maybe you are like me and are suffering from password overload. Many of the things I need to access require me to change the password on a regular basis and won't allow me to re-use a previous one, so I am constantly...
I got them for my daughter, but sheís sadly developed an allergy to them. They come with everything you will need. Free to a good home.
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

Film is finally out this week. Anyone else excited about seeing it?
Going on Friday after work, taking my son although I think Iím more excited than him. Just the standard 2D screening although if itís good might also go to a 3D showing.
Iím also interested how much of Edinburgh is going to...
I was in pub with wife and noticed person watching other playing slots.
I am sure there is an actual word for this my wife thinks lurking but it's not that. It defo ends in ING
Anyone running this?
Just signed up this week, my current fitness equals zero.
I trained semi-professionally from 1995-2014 until I retired. I literally have not trained since my last official training session and match in May 2014. I'm using the simple beginners marathon training schedule...
I know true followers of the fall will dismiss me as a Johnny come lately, but Iím loving this **** and in in true Mark E Smith style I couldnít give a **** what any of you think :greengrin
Has anyone ever listened to this on the Jeremy Vine show? Some eccentric old Welsh guy called Terry comes on and proceeds to do some gardening whilst talking away describing what heís doing. Itís the best thing on the radio. It must be what it was like before TVs came along.
I love my music, but I constantly find myself hating everything that everyone I know likes.
Its not good but I love this one
Posting videos of songs you listen to are cut then paste into the insert video icon if anybody wants to post anyway. I love all kinds of music of any era and type.
Why do some guys insist on going to the toilet for a Jarkko Wiss, using a cubicle, but not shutting the bloody door!
Does it excite you to think of someone not paying attention and walking into the back of you with your pork truncheon in your hand?
Do you enjoy awkward exchanges with other...
I never drink the last part of a cup of tea. This habit stems from pre-teabag days.
I still do it even though the reason for doing it is gone.
Old habits die hard.
Anyone have recommendations for hotel accommodation in New York.
I've recently booked flights as they were coming in OKish (£330 per skull direct) but then realised it's such a big place and I know literally nothing about the Big Apple.
