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...
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.
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....
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...
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.

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)

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?
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.
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.
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,...
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...

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.

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)
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
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.
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;

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 ....
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...
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.
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...
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...
You favourite juice (aka ginger) from your childhood and the decade? Any long gone manufacturers (e.g. globe) you recall?
Me? American Cream Soda. 1970s. Solripe.
Something going on.
Got planes flying over my house which never happens, noticed on flight radar it was the same two 4 times ( so far), a quick look further south and there's 4 or 5 aircraft circling in a holding pattern.... anyone 'in the know'
(Dot net hive mind always a good shout!)
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...
Been sat here since about 1300, brilliant, mellow atmosphere, great way to pass the day until pub time for the Scotland game. 🍺😄🍺
Anyone have memories of swimming in this legendary pool ? As kids we used it every weekend where we would traipse from Leith to this vastly impressive outdoor swimming arena
I think at the time it was 5p to enter and 2p for your locker in which you had your key in a rubber wrist band, we would...
I've sang in a couple of bands but never got to name them. I always liked the sound of "Platonic Gangbang".
What would you name your band?
I know that Amazon is the blood sucking plaything of the devil incarnate, but I have just had a highly positive experience.
I ordered replacement light bulbs, fitting E27, but I forgot to specify warm white rather than daylight.
I tried one but it was way too white, almost clinical so I...
I don't know if anyone on here is familiar with the 'Wee Hub' which currently occupies the old Debenhams store at Ocean Terminal. It's a social enterprise which has become home over the last 18 months to community groups ranging from art, dance, drama, circus skills, music, crafts, kids football...
My missus was at the car showrooms at newbridge and a couple of little darlings started throwing stones off the top deck of one of the country buses. She got the driver to pull over and got the details. The youtz did a runner. Anyone know if Lothian buses are libel for the damage?
Granted, this is a bit sad/naff, but it's mostly harmless!
We're in the habit of saying "Alexa - hello" or "good morning" most days just to hear hear replies.
However, asking "Alexa, how are you?" every day can elicit some amusing exchanges.
Are there other daft ways to chat to her while...
Anyone know if they accept a driving licence instead of a passport if you fly Ryanair to Belfast from Edinburgh.
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'll start with:
Coke and Irn Bru taste better out of a glass bottle.
People are more polite to each other when the weather is nice.
Has anyone read any good books recently
Bit of respite from our miserable league campaign on BBC2 tonight at 7:45 (also available on BBC Sounds).
Nearly two hours of some legendary Northern sides including the classic "Three before Eight" played at the end of the all-nighters at Wigan Casino.
Apart from the aforementioned Tobi...

Eldest just came in from school complaining that he hadn't eaten as I'd not topped up his card. I remembered and forgot to do it on Monday and today
