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...
Hello. Or should that be Hallo?
I mentioned it in train thread I’m away to Munich next weekend to take in the Düsseldorf game.
Any recommendations for other things to do in the city. I’m sure there will be many a pubs visited (I’ve worked out there’s a massive one beginning with an H?!)
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?
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...
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....
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...
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...
Out of interest, have the protests that are taking place in France this weekend been given much msm coverage in the UK?
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.
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...
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,...
£2.15 a 🍺 @ The Foot of the Walk, bargain.
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)
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...
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)
My Mrs will be 60 next month and she’s made it absolutely clear she doesn’t want any surprises or anyone to go over the top buying her presents. This has scuppered me somewhat as I had a few ideas of going away somewhere for a few days nice meal etc. But she’s adamant she just wants a quiet time at...
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"
Wanting to get a pair made to order. Anyone recommend anywhere?
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...
Just wondering where the best place to go tomorrow night for a fireworks display? I stay close to Meadowbank so we normally go there but hadn’t given it any thought this year until I hear loads going off just now.
I know Musselburgh do a free one but I suspect that’ll be crazy busy...
BBC News - Gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger killed in prison
A predictable end really. Both Johnny Depp and Jack Nicholson portrayed him well but as an FBI informer (if correct) he was always going to struggle in prison. Not a nice guy at all.
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
Similar to previous threads but those things you've never ever tried.
I'll kick-off with..
Nandos. (cheeky or otherwise)
Can you remember the joke he told about (I think) the wee boy who tells the Pope to F off?
I'm trying to find it on YouTube but no joy so far.
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.)
Fifty years since it was released. Is it one of the most important albums ever released by a British group?
What are your favourite tracks on it. Mine is Big Sky.
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...
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.
Björk is one of them - Debut and Post were outstanding, Homogenic an all time classic and even in her more recent years has...
RIP. Guess the gators got you

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...
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...
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...
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...
Living in Australia the last 4 years, I’m 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.
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.
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...
Where do you all go? For the last couple of years I’ve 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 I’m now intrigued :greengrin
