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.

Some guy just said to me. ďWhere did that rain come fromĒ
It came from the clouds in the sky. Old people always say ďold age doesnít come itself or donít get old sonĒ what does that even mean?
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)
What is it with the cost of black cab taxiís in Edinburgh nowadays?
I just got one from the High street to Blackford and it cost eleven quid! That was with a bare minimum tip as the driver didnít take cards.
Iíve been in Glasgow a bit recently and Black cab taxiís seem to be far cheaper....

All scores 80%+ except acceleration which was 9%. Is this a fault with my driving or is their system set up wrong? Asked the person who gave me the report for an explanation of how the score is arrived at but all I got was a blank look. Other drivers...
Just watched a film thinking throughout the female lead was thandie newton. Then the credits cane up...zoe saldana. Are those 2 related? Identical!!😲😲
Coldplay are not going to tour to promote their album, to protect the environment. Why not go further and not record albums at all?
(Ironically, Chris Martin is telling us this from somewhere in Jordan. Man is an utter space cadet.)
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...
Programme on now about him. Fascinating how he thought up the World Wide Web and the problems he had setting it up. I always thought it was just a natural progression, but it absolutely wasnít. What a genius he was.
Watching it on tv now and itís both heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. Seeing all these children battling with adversity and not only dealing with, but being so brave at the same time has I have to admit reduced me to tears at times. Also all the people who have worked tirelessly to help...
Seeing as we have one for restaurants, it would be interesting/potentially funny to hear about people's best (and, let's face it, worst) experiences in hotels seeing as so many of us stay in them for our holidays/short breaks etc.
For me, living in Switzerland, unless you want to donate an organ...
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.

I have lost my main front door entry into building key fob. My wife has hers but its a pain with City building telling me 2 weeks to get somebody out. Do any of you know if these can be duplicated? It looks like Picture:
Just read this article, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50187528 and it does raise the question - What can you do if someone refuses to move from a seat you have reserved?
Thankfully I have never had this issue, or if I have the person has moved. I have sat in a seat I know was reserved from a...
We have a 4 month old rescue dog arriving on Saturday. I've read up a fair bit, bought pretty much everything we could need.
Looking for any tips or advice from both seasoned dog owners and anyone who has had a rescue dog before. This one is 57 varieties but clearly has either whippet or lurcher...
Does anyone know where the best place is to get a motorcycle helmet fitted? In particular one that would offer gift vouchers. Looking to give the vouchers as a gift so he can go and choose for himself. Anywhere in Edinburgh, Fife or Perth would be grand. Many thanks in advance!
Taking the laddie to a thing at the hydro on thursday, checked the multi story opposite and its £11 for the time we are there, is there anywhere nearby that's cheaper?

Any favourite breaks and...
Was on the North Berwick to Edinburgh train the other night when the onboard announcement stated it was stopping at Abbeyhill Junction.

How many have kids still moaning about this black hole, mine has been complaining about it since last night
I don't sleep particularly well (which is why I'm glad I found the acronym thread as thinking about solutions distracts my brain and helps me fall asleep) and I'm regularly repositioning and plumping my pillows during the night.
However, having threatened to do so for years, I finally researched...
Now from the song ironic when nothing in it is actually ironic except that maybe it appears the singer doesn't know what it means.
