    I was told the the Canadian NWT stopped the filming "Ice Truckers" because they were over-exaggerating the dangers. Not that there aren't any dangers, but the film makers were dramatising them for effect. The authorities didn't like them doing it and put a stop to it.
    That was one of the worst examples. Things like that and the one where theyíre looking for gold are so exaggerated.

    Britains most historic towns on Channel 4, from the blurb:

    The towns featured in the series are:

    Chester Ė Britainís Most Roman Town
    York Ė Britainís Most Viking Town
    Winchester Ė Britainís Most Norman Town
    Norwich Ė Britainís Most Tudor Town
    Cheltenham Ė Britainís Most Regency Town
    Belfast Ė Britainís Most Victorian Town

    Bit of a theme there. Obviously Scotland and Wales don't qualify.

    I think the categories are the barriers - it's hard to argue with the selections for the first four and some of those influences barely extended into Scotland

    Glasgow could and should rival Belfast for the Victorian element but Belfast probably feels it gets overlooked most of the time because of the prominence of Alexander Thomson and the like.

    The Regency category is probably a bit of a subset of Georgian, in which case Edinburgh and its New Town should walk it. Nevertheless, Cheltenham is undeniably impressive.

    I wondered about the choice of 'town' rather than 'city' but some of the names are definitely cities.

    Another example of 'Most Victorian' would be Paisley. I think it has the secondmost-densest prevalence of listed buildings in Scotland, after Edinburgh, almost all from the Victorian period. It would be perhaps a more interesting subject matter than a Glasgow or a Belfast.

    Grown men that are too lazy and inconsiderate to lift the toilet seat before taking a pish at work!!!!

    Fair enough if youíre accurate enough not to pish all over a seat that someone else is going to eventually have to sit on.

    ****s

    And yes Iím typing this from the toilet.

    I often find the folk who are the clartiest *******s in public are quite clean and tidy at home, it's just laziness.

    There's a women in my work who leaves dirty dishes all over the place, spills milk and doesn't wipe it up, forces mountains of paper onto a recycling bin close to overflowing, she left a bowl with food in it in her drawer for the weekend because she couldn't be ersed going downstairs and washing it then got all nippy when she was pulled up for it. Yet I've been to her house a couple of times and it's absolutely spotless; she's just a lazy cow when she knows other people will clean up after her.

    I have to say itís not a mindset that I can understand. It comes down to decency and manners.

    She must be the exception! Most times you'd find her house to be a ####hole as well I reckon.

    I don't know. I think a lot of people can be schizophrenic in their behaviour. I've got one guy at work who never shuts the **** up but whenever his wife is around he's as quiet as a lamb. Wish she'd get a job with us.

    Strong wind when you are cycling and it doesn't matter what direction you go it's a head wind, its like getting on a bike transports you into some sort of Bermuda triangle.

    Reminds me of a cycling holiday in the Netherlands, about 30 years ago. I worked out why the Dutch built windmills.

    Bizarrely it had never occurred to me before 😄

    People who get competitive for no reason.

    When you are out walking and people practically chase you up a mountain just to pass you, when you are running and someone sprints past you only for you to pass them again a mile up the road because they are knackered or when you pull out to overtake someone when driving and as soon as they see you they start to speed up.

    If I'd known you were going to post that, I'd have jumped in before you - just to beat you to it



    Seriously, my current pet peeve is when I go to press "Sport" on the BBC website, a nanosecond before I click on it, it suddenly jumps to the right and I end up clicking the 'News' or something else.

    When a loved one shouts at you through the house even though they know you won't be able to hear what they're saying.

    I've taken to ignoring it - as a sort of training exercise.

    That does my head in. If they want to speak to me, come through to where I am and speak. Can't stand the shouting from upstairs or another room.

    And another thing.

    I don't know if any of you live in central Scotland where these are prominent, but being woken up by an orange walk does my ****ing head in.

    Not only do they stand for everything that's wrong in 21st century Scotland (open oppression of others religions, a show of force by the protestant sects of society, union jacks on show) but they are obnoxiously noisy and why the **** are they on at 6/6:30 in the morning? Is it because they don't want to miss an early rangers kick off? Or have they got puppies to execute in the afternoon?

    Pricks.
