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.
Has anyone else found great songs after Shazaming music from TV ads?
I've found a few but the latest is the one from the new Seat offering, the Tarraco.
It's a song called Try by Bugge Wesseltoft and Sidsel Endrelson.
It's beautiful, so chilled.
Is there any HIBS supporters liking Drum and Bass here?
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)

Does anyone know when Hector Nicol released 'Glory Glory to the Hibees (and the other song on the 'b' side)? On the Wikipedia page they need a citation to show that it was the original version of the classic chant from the terraces. If you can point to a web article that has the information I'll...
Have you ever done it or aware of anyone who has done it whilst at work in an office.
I ask the question after a High Court judge apologises after falling asleep.
I do recall in my first week at a new firm being in a lunchtime presentation when I...
Probably an age thing, but I'm finding more and more these days that when walking I always seem to be the person that waits to let someone pass, makes a detour around or moves to one side to make way for what I would describe as ignorant sods that haven't got any sense of whats happening 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.
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...
Apologies if this isn't the correct forum, my laddie has xbox live gold,I bought it directly from Microsoft last year and it has ran out, I've seen a deal cheaper than what Microsoft want for a renewal, will it matter if I buy it from somewhere other than Microsoft? Or will he lose his log in...
Looking to take the mrs away Friday 1st March and come back Sunday 3rd March , Anyone got any good advice where to go ? Wouldn't mind somewhere down South like Liverpool or Yorkshire or maybe even Newcastle , To be fair somewhere that's not a million miles away as it's only a short 2 day stay ,...
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...
Any good ones out there? Had grapefruit spinach and kiwi fruit yesterday was OK could have tasted a bit better though
What is it with the cost of black cab taxiís in Edinburgh nowadays?
I just got one from the High street to Blackford and it cost eleven quid! That was with a bare minimum tip as the driver didnít take cards.
Iíve been in Glasgow a bit recently and Black cab taxiís seem to be far cheaper....
Looking to replace gas hob with electric and cant decide between Induction ( seems the best) or Ceramic. Wife has got her eye on Induction hob that works off 13a plug as we don't have enough power in kitchen, but it appears that all 4 rings cannot be used at the same time? Also i'm told that with...
Just out of curiosity I'm wondering about the prices and timescale of getting it done.
We moved in two years ago and the kitchen was in need of a bit of TLC, now it's at a point where it's just plain scabby.
We would need to strip out the whole thing, including an enclosed brick boiler...
I've got a slow cooker and one of those fancy pressure cooker things, both of which were purchased with the vague notion that I'd be able to just lob a bunch of stuff in them and a meal would miraculously appear. However looking around the internet there's hunners of sites with all manner of pop...
Answered my desk phone at work today to hear the following in what I would describe as an Indian accent.
I kept him on the line for a good five minutes acting daft when he asked me to press windows key and R together.
He kept repeating R for Romance (I think he meant to say Romeo) and then the...
When I was in Galway for Christmas and New Year I watched the derby in McGinns Hop House, and Daryl Horganís brother works there behind the bar. He wasnít in working on that day though as he was over for the game.
Anyone else got any equally unimpressive anecdotes or achievments?
I've been getting some fumes in my diesel cars cab area, and after taking a look, my son in law tells me the engine has developed something called Injector Blow-by.
The car runs fine but fumes are escaping up the side of the injectors, so the injector seals would appear to need replacing.
Yes I know smoking isn't good for me. Has anyone on here used the website My Smoking Shop? Looking to buy a couple of things off of it but wasn't sure.
Alternatively if anybody knows any online tobacconist that are any good?

New album is going to be on a lot of album of the year lists. Staggeringly good. Supposedly Robert Smith was advising them a lot on it.
What British authors do people recommend? I am looking to try different authors. It's mainly fiction I read but would be interested in people's opinions on any genre, both fiction and non fiction.
Daughter bought a pair of converse from USC.

She popped back in to exchange them but they donít have them in stock but...
Anyone read this pish?
Gorgie is rightly proud of its footballing and industrial heritage ó brewing, distilling, printing to name but three ó and its tenements retain an authentic sense of a working-class community. Gritty, defiant, honest Heart of Midlothian FC symbolises what the district is...
Looks like Iíll be starting a new job before the end of the month, 11pm - 7am. Wondering if any Hibees out there have any tips on working nights?

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?

I was clearing out a cupboard today and came across 2 bottles of champagne that my wife & I were given on our wedding day 28 years ago.
They have probably been stored incorrectly but I wondered if they would still be drinkable or should just be binned.
The first is a Lanson Black Label Brut...
Recently our 2 cats (3 yrs old) have been brining more and more stuff in through the cat flap - not like they donít get fed!
