This board was initially set up with the intention of it being a forum for "serious discussion"....politics...and erm....world & current affairs...that kind of thing.
From time to time we do end up moving threads over to the Dug Out, so if we do, then don't be offended.
I would also remind...
The laddie has finally told folk he is gay, not exactly shock of the year but hopefully the laddie can get on with his life without constant rumours about him wondering if he is or isnt
I wasn't paying any attention to the TV, but I heard the familiar hesitation and staccato and I knew who it was before I looked over.
Their vocal mannerisms are identical. It get's right on ma thrupennies.
Is there something we should be told?
Would anyone happen to know where the ideal place is to park the car and view the fireworks from the car?
I got 1%, but then I'm a lazy so and so and thats all I deserve :greengrin
11% seems pretty generous.
An elaborate ploy, perhaps, the MP's reject it and make themselves look good in the process, but accept a smaller 6-7% rise?
I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future.
I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.
Anyone else have these problems? My old man is from the old brigade who thinks pull yourself together is the answer. Never used to be like this and time in the army hasn't helped. However, I'm not afraid to admit things and feel no stigma in being affected by this.
Just wondering if other...
I'm looking for ideas as I have a fair bit of spare time these days.
I do some work with young people for the Prince's Trust, but they only call me occasionally and I feel I could do more.
My research online hasn't provided any inspiration so I wondered if anyone here could help.
Wonder if the SPFL will follow suit?
Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand he is obviously one of the most significant figures in modern world history but on the other he is a 95 year old South African man who died of illness, not in tragic...
At first I thought this was a bit mental, but I quickly realised it's actually a quite brilliant way to spread the message.
Really interested with Alex salmonds comments on the situation. Most politicians would hock there granny to save a vote but he seems to be ignoring that and quiet prepared to openly support them at the expense of losing votes. Or is he just so arrogant that he is willing to dismiss how us hibbies...
I thought it would be nice to have a thread about the positive things that happen in the world for a change.
Post your heartwarming stories in here.
First up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24170670 :thumbsup:
Didnt want to put this in the main forum, but anyone any idea how I can get ahold of some of the sect 43 stickers especially the ones with the harp?
There's an ad running on the BBC just now promoting up and coming bands which has a song playing in the background. What I'd like to know is who is it by. Can anyone help.
Is anyone else regularly entertained by this loons writings in the comments section on The Scotsman web site?
Here's his latest:

I came cross this:
I read through it, and after my jaw came back up and realised there weren't enough exclamation or elipses to be HK Hibby in disguise thought it must be a wind up site. But actually, I...
A while ago the devil (RBS) wrote to me saying they'd identified that some loans I had in the past had PPI cover and they were wanting to resolve any complaints by 2016.
So I duly completed the forms, noted that bank reps had told me at the time my loan applications stood a better chance of...
A bit gutted by this news this morning.
Though not particularly much of a petrol head, I always enjoyed the Fast and Furious films and just recently finished watching them all back to back.
Was looking forward to the 7th instalment next...
What a sad start to the start of the festive season, with at least six dead and 32 injured.
I'll confess to being a little bit gutted today at the news that Ian Watkins has now plead guilty to 13 charges of sex offenses, including attempting to rape a baby.
I grew up during the era when the Lostprophets were emerging and from when The Fake...
Maybe I've led a sheltered life, but I can't see the automatic connection that painting your faces black for fancy dress is racist/innapropriate. Can someone explain this one to me?
See they've gone a wee but further this year, and extended their tacky fairground attractions to St. Andrew Square. I've nothing against a carnival, but to litter our World Heritage site with this junk is surely putting Edinburghs image at risk.
Perhaps a purpose built site for the shows would...
Anyone using boinc?
Basically it allows grid computing projects to use your idle cpu/ gpu cycles to do mathematical problems/ constructs for projects requiring massive computing power. Volunteer computers reduce the research times of these studies, In fact without volunteer PCs donating their...
With Britain about to be hit by the worst winter EVERRRRRRRR, I thought it would be good to keep a track of the snow situation across the place, recount the idiocy in people that snow seems to bring about and - if it does get actually serious (not "UK serious") then - who knows - you UK dwellers...
This story has made me really angry. Hope they find the **** who would do this.
I wonder what her motivation was.
Revenge for previous abuse? Badness? Madness?
Surely the rumours can't be true. Maybe the powers that be are making a deliberate case for Scots to vote for independence,
They had a march through Broxburn today due to the memorial. Marching past along the main st , 3 jakey looking characters stumble over to the to shake their hand while shouting "no surrender".
I don't like him being in the cadets anyway but this sort of thing Sickens me.
With all the cafuffle over Hearts owing the Poppy charity money hopefully something positive can come out - increased awareness (the poppy appeal was even launched by the Proclaimers).
but here's the important question - have you bought yours?
I've bought mine but have found distribution a...
Does anyone know if doing a "Loyalist" (red hand of Ulster) salute is common among this lot or are they doing Nazi salutes? Shameful either way I guess.
Am I the only one enjoying the fact that 2 former editors of a paper that took so much joy in dragging people through the mud are now having to face the same themselves in a court of law.
I believe its impossible that they did not sanction the actions of their journos and hope they pay the price...
Just heard he has died. I doubt a lot of people will ever know how influential the Velvet Underground were. Thanks for your stuff Lou, thanks for Bowie, Roxy, The Ramones, Lloyd Cole, Orange Juice, and everything since.
While I understand that the thought of someone who was ultimately responsible for the department that oversaw such a tragedy getting such a payout is rather galling you have to wonder why Ed is not even apologising for the way he went about dismissing...
Anyone else not getting skytext just now? Been out since last night.
Anyone seen it? Thinking of going this weekend.
What an absolute disaster this will be if nobody steps in/nothing can be agreed!
