Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
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...
Looking for some help, we bought our son an ipad off ebay and it arrived yesterday, the previous owners email address is still on the icloud part and we cant out my sons details into anything as the other address comes up, is there an easy way to get his details off without a password, the previous...
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....
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...
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)
Am I over cynical here? Electricity providers want a smart meter installed in our homes in order to save money by not employing readers
to go from house to house, sometimes several times if no one is in. Bills issued and collected by DD. Huge savings to the supplier.
Yet they want us to use...
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,...
Just been reading on 'Lost Edinburgh' Facebook page regarding graffiti around Edinburgh over the years, people were going on about one particular in the 90's 'McCabe Grass' around Sighthill area I do remember it but does anyone know the story behind it? People think its something to do with a...
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)
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?
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,...
What would you put into your Room 101 when it comes to music? You get three picks.
My first is technically proficient bands who offer little in the way of excitement. Seen The 101 at Belladrum who could play their instruments well but were dull as dishwater. Compare that with bands like Retro...
My wife has never tried calamari, but doesn't like it. There are other examples. Several folk on the "Things you haven't tried" thread profess to disliking things they have never tried.
That baffles and frustrates me.
Apart from supporting another football club, or causing yourself pain, I...
Living in Australia the last 4 years, Iím feeling totally out of the loop.
Any decent bands from Scotland over that time I may have missed? Just stumbled upon Mastersystem the other day, the Frightened Rabbit/Editors side project.
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"
Similar to previous threads but those things you've never ever tried.
I'll kick-off with..
Nandos. (cheeky or otherwise)
I'd love a bit of advice if so, trying to tap into the power of the dot net hive mind.
My partner is trying to get some experience in the industry while she's at college. The problem she's facing is all she's getting is waiting/bar work offered, rather than a chance to actually see how events...
Can anyone tell me how much it costs to get a tradesman to hang a door?
I assume that they would also fit the handles and latch.
I need 6 fitted.
So I passed my test around 3 weeks ago and am currently saving for a car. Just going to get a cheap run about for now, any recommendations?
Secondly, I am quite nervous about driving on my own for the first time when I do get eventually get my car, I have a feeling I may not be very confident...
Alright guys my bands new album is out today if you want to give it a whirl. Bit differant to our old stuff hope you enjoy
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...
Turned up to Glasgow this morning to find my flight to Philadelphia is delayed by 3 hours. Meaning I miss my connection onto San Francisco, so I've now been bumped onto a later flight and won't get to California until 6am tomorrow morning.
I vowed never to fly with American Airlines after a...
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.)
Where do you all go? For the last couple of years Iíve been going to Kurdistan barbers in portobello. I get my hair and beard done, the service is unbelievable. Such nice guys and so professional in what they do.
Anyone on here got them? Saw a set for the first time at the swimming pool the other night and Iím now intrigued :greengrin
There's loads of bands I love but will admit that they've had a bad album or have a major flaw - there are a small handful that I would say are perfect in their output.
BjŲrk is one of them - Debut and Post were outstanding, Homogenic an all time classic and even in her more recent years has...
Anyone else heard their pulling a few of their routes from Edinburgh including Edinburgh - New York.
Can anyone answer this poser: what was the biggest ever away support to watch a football match in Edinburgh?
No prizes, just for fum. My supposedly football mad friends could not answer 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...
We have a Cocker Spaniel, had him for a month, the previous dog we had (Yorkie) had the usual treats for good behaviour etc. We used to go to Morrisons and get bones/end cuts for him which he loved. We were at Tesco yesterday and asked the Butcher if they had any bones/end cuts but they said they...
I'm looking for inspiration and that thread had loads of suggestions, but I can't find it. :confused:
Takes me back..Had a burd for every day off the week back then.

This viewing option seems to be more and more prevalent.
As I mentioned on the box sets thread, I started watching Killing Eve last night. It's a brand new drama (I was going to call it a series, but is it?) and every episode is already available.
It's indicative of how people's viewing...
Sitting in a 'Spoons pub in Carlisle drinking this (4%). Anyone else had it? it's very moreish, though its awfy sweet.

Thereís a few songs out there that start in a certain way but then switch to a completely different style half way through. I love them, but letís list them.
ill start with wings band on the run and the killers all these things that Iíve done.
This is inspired by the Two-Part Songs thread,
Lots of songs follow the same model verse-chorus-verse-chorus- something different -chorus or ABABCB. The ‘something different’ bit can be in a changed key or even a changed time signature, and there’s something about the way it resolves itself to...
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...
Anyone else doing it tomorrow?
