Iíve had my washing machine for 14 years, Iíve been paying around £15 a month for the whole time Iíve owned it for a maintenance plan. Itís only broken down once in that time, Iíd have replaced it by now if it wasnít for the fact that Iíve paid enough to buy about 3 washing machines and theyíll...
The absolute king of music. No one will ever better what he did. Legend.
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.
Been a resident of the Lothians for 50 years. Today was the first I have ever heard of the Isle of May when I googled it after seeing it from Yellowcraig beach today.
My knowledge of Scotlands geography is shocking. I'm really good at flags of the world though.
What's your best and worst...
Again along with the idea of "genre defying" and "songs that blow your mind" thread, not necessarily the best gig you've been to, but the ones that will likely be spoken about for a long time because of significance to the artist or whatnot.
First off the top of my head is Blur at Glastonbury...
So why write a song about it?
A song in which money is mentioned over 50 times?
(I thought it was time we had a thread for pendantic observations.)
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...

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...
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....
Does anyone know if thereís a deadline to apply for a refund due to the rescheduling? My daughter was supposed to be going with a friend but the email has been missed and the girl who booked says there was a deadline of 9/4 to apply for a refund? That canít be right?
They fell out last year so...
Been using this a reasonable amount recently; if you're not aware it's an app where supermarkets, grocers, coffee shops and restaurants sell off the stuff they'd throw out at the end of the day and you can buy a bag of it for anything from £2-£4 on average. Sometimes you get a really good bag,...
I donít see a film thread on the front page. Seeing as Iíve been watching more this last wee while, thought Iíd start a thread for sharing recent watches, whether the films are new releases, old classics and everything in between.
Iíll kick off with ĎA star is borní which I watched on Amazon...
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple
Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
Iím on holiday in turkey and thereís a guy that goes around in roller skates taking orders for drinks and handing out ice lollies. I could easygo and order this myself, but it makes me happy when the guy comes round in his roller skates.
What are the little things in life that make you happy.
Watching the Liverpool v Villa game and it was pointed out that Villa have lost the least points from winning positions in the EPL. It's currently 5, but Liverpool have just equalised so it's gone up to 7 as it stands.
Are there stattos out there who know how many we have dropped after being in...
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...
I have resolved to watch more documentaries during lockdown, so I'm looking for some recommendations.
Watched the Console Wars (Nintendo v Sega) and Apollo 11 on Sky Documentaries over the last couple of days.
What's everyone listening to? Or what genre do you like listening to?
i've referenced it on other threads, but i'm in the process of setting up my own so 1) shamelessly plugging mine here please delete if not allowed but hoping to get some interest and support from friends/family/fellow hibs...
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)
Any of the older folk on here know any more details about the pub down the shore (now Giuliano's On The Shore) that had an actual puma in it? Even better, anyone got any photos of it? I canít find any?
Today Iíve just discovered that such a thing happened and I canít get my head around it!
I seen footage of the Meadows last night, seems to be getting worse every weekend with gangs of youths meeting up, drinking, fighting and causing havoc. Itís a shame to say. It with reports of someone being glasses and or stabbed itís not going to be long before someone dies.
Anyone on here do this ?
Just bought one to use during the easter holidays and looking for tips on where to go , what to look for etc.
We're getting one fitted on our south facing roof next month, has anyone else had this done and what were your experiences with it.
The size of the system we are installing promises that enough power to not only cover our electricity needs during the day but also feed excess power into the...
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
The other thread about the Leith Puma prompted me to post this. Iím not a full vegan. I went probably 85% vegan when I split up from my ex wife and have totally gone the other way since meeting my girlfriend who is a big meat eater. I feel Iím a total hypocrite though as actually I fundamentally...
Might seem a daft question but could anyone who has purchased a 9-12 month Infant Hibs Kit let me know if they are small/large made. My Grandson is 10 months and a good build so Iím wondering if the 9-12 month would be too small. 👍
You plan more sprouts than spuds for the Sunday roast.
When you buy an electric car, and you have no place to park near your house, how do you charge it? Do you have a run a cable or similar out to the car, or would you have to get an electrician to construct some sort of power source against the wall at the perimeter of the house?
(Apologies for my...
What do you think? First saw Frankie Boyle in a tent at Murrayfield before an England Scotland rugby game (Scotland won btw) I thought he was hilarious, as time went on his act got a bit more edgy lets say. Kevin Bridges is currently my favourite comedian fullstop. What are your views/thoughts?
Thousands of examples obviously, but going through some old stuff on spotify just now I came across these words of wisdom from Marc Bolan on Electric warrior. The song is "cosmic dancer"
"Is it wrong to understand the fear that dwells inside a man?
What's it like to be a loon?
I liken it to a...
Just watched it, some amazingly bad police work seemed to embolden him. Due for parole in 4 years, unbelievable. 🤔
I normally drift off to sleep at night while listening to a podcast on Spotify.
The annoying thing is that it is still playing when i wake up in the morning.
I have Autoplay turned off but it still just plays the next one in sequence .
Anyone know how to fix this ?
Iím left handed and Iíve heard all sorts of nonsense on how this shapes your personality or life choices. Personally I think itís nonsense, but anyway, what are you all. Beware Iíll be judging based on your answers :greengrin
Has anyone purchased a secret shirt? Basically you get sent out a football shirt and well itís a secret until you open it.
Artistically who is your favourite artist from each nation? Could be an actor comedian sports person or musician/pop artist.
Racing driver and occasional top gear presenter has passed away aged 51. Iíll never forget her trying to beat Clarksonís time around the Nurburgring in a transit van, she was such a funny and enthusiastic person and sheíll be sorely missed RIP. The queen of the ring.
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;
