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)
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)
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.
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....
I've got a mate who sleeps 4 hrs a day and is still a fully functioning human being. He swears the secret is to make sure it's only 4 hrs otherwise he's knackered the whole day. 4 hrs good 3 hrs or 5 bad.
Me? I work shifts so sometimes the alarm goes at 4am and sometimes it goes at 4pm but no...
What a brilliant drama!
I've just finished series one and I'm blown away with how good it was.
Woody Harleson and Matthew McConaughey are outstanding and the story is compelling right to the end.
This is up there with The Sopranos.
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.

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...
Anybody watch this?
I saw the first episode was being shown on C4 last night. I'm on Episode 5 and it's brilliant.
Damian Lewis is excellent, as is Claire Danes. So far it's shaping up to be a well-observed take on a number of subjects in the CIA/post-Iraq genre which haven't been covered...
Out of interest, have the protests that are taking place in France this weekend been given much msm coverage in the UK?
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,...
Off to Berlin for the weekend for 3 nights. The Saturday evening will take care off itself as i'm off to see Hertha v Eintracht but any other recommendations for things to do and see, any neighbourhoods/districts outside the center worth a visit etc?
Will see Checkpoint Charlie,...
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...

Iíve just been made redundant from my work, a month before Christmas which is far from ideal. I will literally take anything to get me through Christmas/New Year, I just need cash for the festive period. So Iíll pop the question... Does anyone know of any jobs going?
Iíd prefer the building...
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 got two great seats for the James & Charlatans gig this Wednesday. Note: it is same day as our game against St Mirren.
Block 205, Row A seats together
Face value 55 quid each
I will send them tomorrow guaranteed next day delivery.
DM me if you want them
As an alternative to the Pet Peeves thread, and to hopefully spread a bit of cheer, what are the simple things in life that make you smile :greengrin
Or give you that Yaaassss!!!! fist pumping moment. :aok:
I'll start it off with one of my favourites:-
When you bite into a Kit Kat finger...
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.

Wonder if anyone can help
A Jambo at my work says he was in New York a while back and there were a few Hibs tops on show.
He canít remember the bar of it.
Any Hibees sheíd any light on this ? Iím heading over next week and would love to visit this bar if it exists !
Was on a 5 day break down in London stayed in Tower Hill area and noticed that as it was a business area the amount of folk in suits whom I assume are at work were in pubs drinking from 11am and on lunch etc quite surprising and is that even allowed in jobs these days?
Hello. Or should that be Hallo?
I mentioned it in train thread Iím away to Munich next weekend to take in the DŁsseldorf game.
Any recommendations for other things to do in the city. Iím sure there will be many a pubs visited (Iíve worked out thereís a massive one beginning with an H?!)
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...
Has anyone read the whole six volumes of this novel? Often mentioned as the greatest novel of all time; an epic concerning love and loss, time and memory, the role of art to humans and the transience of life, set within the French aristocracy at the turn of the twentieth century. Not a Jackie...
£2.15 a 🍺 @ The Foot of the Walk, bargain.
My Mrs will be 60 next month and sheís made it absolutely clear she doesnít 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 sheís adamant she just wants a quiet time at...
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 hadnít given it any thought this year until I hear loads going off just now.
I know Musselburgh do a free one but I suspect thatíll 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.
BjŲrk 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
