Feels like there's one every week, so thought it might be an idea to have the one thread 🤔
This week it's David Crosby. Eight miles high now.
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.
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)
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...
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington
Nov 10 - Coldplay,...

The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.

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)
Hopefully no casualties.
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;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
Done a stupid thing recently and scraped my car off a wall - damaged the bodywork and a few scrapes on the alloys (never drive tired).
Anyone know any good (but reasonable) bodywork specialists in Edinburgh???
Can anyone recommend or even know of a company that will retrofit campers for things like WiFi or heated seats? I cannot find anything in the central belt, I must be missing something!
Hugely unsuccessful band but massively influential.
I hear shoe-gaze, grunge, slocore and there's probably a few more micro genres in there too.
Great to learn to play to.

There's been a couple of threads like this before but you can't beat a good discussion about beer.
Currently a huge fan of:
William Bros Seven Giraffes
Timothy Taylor Landlord
Cairngorm Trade Winds
Stewart Pentland IPA
Fallen Smokehouse Porter
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....
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.
Bit of advice guys. Recently had some walls in the house plastered and now looking to paint them. Should I use a mix of PVA glue and water as an under coat or use watered down matt paint.
After 40 odd years of wet shaving my face and chin skin have decided to become a little less supple! So I want to try out an electric razor.
I've got a pretty feeble growth, I shave twice a week, every other day on holiday (as if anyone would notice 😆). There's no fancy bits to trim or edge.
Came across this and couldn't believe people actually eat this , rather them than me 😁.
Thatís The Beatles just released their much hyped new single, Now and Then. I didnít particularly like Free as a Bird or Real Love but this one is a proper Beatles song, I love it.
Unsure if this is correct forum so please move if so.
I am looking for info on when they will be switching the Christmas lights on at the mound/george st this year does anyone know?
I canít find any info on it on the Xmas pages the council are offering, last year I went after...
For anyone travelling to Ireland or maybe visiting family here I would highly recommend you try this chicken product , nicest chicken I've ever eaten tbh . Abit dearer than the normal chicken products though well worth it ....
Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
I live next to the ferryboat which is quite rough like, what are the worst pubs in Edinburgh in your opinion?
Things that a foodie would turn their nose up to, but you wholeheartedly love.
Here are a few of mine:
Rustlers BBQ rib burgers
Tim Hortons Apple fritters
Chicken and mushroom pot noodle
Chicken super noodles
Deep fried pizza from the chippy. A friend of mine introduced me to a gourmet...
Where is the best burger in town?
Only Hearts fans would say Macdonalds :) before I get the usual wit artists :)
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...
A song came on my phone playlist this morning that had me wondering what the best scenes in TV/films are and the songs that made them.
The scene Iím referring to was the ending montage in Scrubs with ďthe book of loveĒ by Peter Gabriel. It was hilarious, but sad in equal measure because it was...
Having received an E mail from Hibs regarding a watch offer, I done some googling about the company, ( yes I am a sado). It seems it isnít a luxury brand after all but a standard quality watch which is being hyped as luxury. The general opinion is that it is probably not worth the money even...
Does anyone play the Spelling Bee that is offered after you've completed Wordle?
It only gives you a few guesses for free, but I paid the £12 for the year's subscription to NYT games and I'm really enjoying it, especially the Spelling Bee.
I usually get enough words to get to the Amazing...
Seems Leith makes the worlds cool top 40 every year. This year Leith is in at number 16.
There's lots more cool places than those (regularly) mentioned in the article and there's a few places I'd say that are honorary Leith despite being outside the boundary.
The 40 coolest neighbourhoods in...
Just been reading on 'Lost Edinburgh' Facebook page regarding graffiti around Edinburgh over the years, people were going on about one particular in the 90's 'McCabe Grass' around Sighthill area I do remember it but does anyone know the story behind it? People think its something to do with a...
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.

Been ignoring texts/calls about this for years but eventually answered the phone to someone pushing me to arrange an appointment to replace our gas and electricity meters. Is this in any way compulsory if your current meters are functioning perfectly well? I tend to hear only criticisms of smart...
Anyone have an idea of when easyJet will be releasing flights for next autumn? I thought they would have been out by now. I'm just impatient
I'm thinking about getting the Cube Kathmandu Pro 750 for my 40 mile commute to and back from work and wanted to hear if anyone has had any experience with pedalecs?
For those of us who are aff it for whatever reason, thought it might be good to have a thread for AF free alternatives.
Got a few bottles of Free Star lager from Home Bargains, incredibly just 39p a bottle. Got plenty of flavour and body to it, will be getting more.
Has anyone got a good recipe for this meaty delight?
I've always enjoyed it, but I was in Cologne a while ago and I had it in a Brauhaus and it was spectacularly delicious so I'd like to recreate it if possible.
Itís gone into administration. Iíve always gone there regularly and really bad news for the 100+ ex employees but also if you like independent cinema. I hope my favourite The Cameo can hang on but the future looks bleak for the whole business model.
Wondering if anyone is able to share their monthly costs for factoring in a flat?
I'm in a block in centralish Edinburgh with a lift, and our monthly cost has just gone up to £200. Yes a month.
This includes building insurance which is really high (factor says due to large number of claims...
