Stanley knife is another

Anytime i've gone abroad with a kilt before i've been wearing it on the plane but i want to...

This pipe seems to be leaking a lot of water. Not constantly, I only noticed after picking up a soaking towel that id dropped next to it this morning. There are also signs of water leaking on the wall behind the pipe. Its in my bathroom, under a radiator next to the sink.
Anyone able to tell...
Anyone seen this yet or know what the story behind it is?
I wonder how easy it would be to lift it and take it away? If it doesn't belong to anyone, surely it's fair...
Was wondering if anyone had much experience with the council and how quickly they turn around empty council houses?
My neighbour recently sadly passed away (she was a fair age) and the house is lying empty, it's a 4 in a block and hers is the only council owned property. Anybody have any idea...
I never thought i'd see a comic on tv that was less amusing than Russell Howard but, I think she takes the prize.
As a frequent visitor to Edinburgh virtually all Hibs related Im geting a little put out by the more and more astronomical hotel/BB costs.

Has anyone tried the app Prankdial?
This thing has had me in stiches for days :greengrin
Basically , you select a prank then enter the victims number and an automated voice recognition program argues with the person and it records it on your phone.
It's actually quite realistic and I...
The reviews are out and they seem to be mixed. Whose going to see it when it comes out or head to the premier on Sunday.
I wonder if it will feature anything about Hibs winning the Scottish Cup!
Anybody on here in to the matched betting? Been doing it myself for a couple of months now and making some good cash from it, it's an improvement on getting rammed from the bookies every weekend anyway.
I only got in to it because of a guy I speak to at the games told me about a hibby he knows...
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...
Anyone know if you can use this to send laptop screen (images/PDFs/PowerPoint) to a TV screen?
What's the story at the top part of New Street where it joins the High Street?
They seemed to have narrowed it to a single lane up from the Market St junction.
As I drove past the other day I didn't have a chance to check the signs.
Anybody know what the rules are now? Is it pedestrians only?...
Interested to get some suggestions of great B-sides, or tracks on double-As that didn't get the rotation that the other track did.
Oasis obviously had some stunners (only up until Some Might say, though, IMHO), and the Restless Natives soundtrack is peerless, but what else should I look out?
Has anyone got a copy of 3am eternal, and/or any other KLF material, that I can get a copy of?
Anyone recommend a good gym with a pool in Edinburgh?

I can't believe Edinburgh Leisure charge around £50 nowadays!
Went to see Silence last night and really struggled with it. Had no idea what it was about before I went but had seen a couple of trailers and thought that might be worth a watch. But it turned out to be one of these films that you just think it's going to get better just hang in there, but...
What a fantastic movie, loved it....the last 40 mins are up there with the the best of anything in the star wars genre
Just watching it now. How crap has this programme become.
Canned laughter with stupid shallow gags. It has lost all its sophistication.
I'm needing to send back a mini moto as it doesn't work.
I bought it in November so do not have the reinforced box it came in.
Can these types of boxes be bought easily enough?
It's the type with the reinforced edges.
Any ideas ?
I'll start it off, I'm sure I've got a Brother Beyond 12" single in the house somewhere! Probably a Debbie Gibson one too.
Sorry to be a bore - Bit of a long shot, lost my keys at the match/after the match last night (v Dundee Utd (06/01/17) as I made my way back to the car in Marionville. Spoke to the club this morning and nothing near my seat in the East stand (section 43). Checking on here incase any kind hearted...
My wife and I thinking of going on a 3 night break in May. Anyone been?
What city would you liken it too?
Currently in intensive care in the US after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London.
I have noticed a lot of arguing on here lately. Quite a lot has been over stupid nonsense imo. Maybe those who can't help themselves could congregate here and argue with each other?
Just realised my passport is expired and I'm planning on going to the away European game in July. How long does it normally take for them to process and send out a new passport? Just got the form today so will send it ASAP!
Wtf is going on? They're dropping like flies! :-(
Just passed away aged only 53.
Great entertainer and gifted individual. Dreadful year for music alround.
RIP George :not worth
For years I looked at Christmas as a warm up for Hogmanay, but since becoming a father, Christmas has become an absolutely magical time that I could never have conceived off just a few years ago. My daughter is 6 and is at that age where she believes in santa and is so excited right now. I know...

It's that time of year again when we learn than Muslamics and Hindihists want to ban Christmas. So post your examples here:
Number 1 is, shock horror, Starbucks have released a green cup instead of a red one.
Noticed online that they are about to celebrate the Citrus Club's 25th birthday, after which they are going to make a decision as to whether to keep the club open or not - the management putting out a 'Use us or lose us' plea.
Would be a crying shame if the Citrus Club went out of business. Had...
