Pausing the the tv when you need a piss.
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.
Enjoying a rather nice bottle of rioja.
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.
I’m on holiday in turkey and there’s 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.
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)
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...
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....
18 months since Pet Peeves III.
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...
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...
With many people having more time on their hands atm what books are people reading? Phil Rickman is an author I like. Just finishing his book Friends of the dusk. He writes supernatural mystery which may not be everyone's cup of tea but he creates fascinating storylines that flow nicely and builds...
Sad but good.
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)
Went on this for the first time in months after my last experience. God it's got even worse. Who does their web design!
It's like the scene in the IT Crowd where Jen has about a million things on her desktop.
BBC News - Bobby Ball: Cannon & Ball star dies aged 76 after Covid-19 diagnosis
Sad news,loved the Cannon and Ball show back in the day
Another COVID-19 victim 😥
ROCK ON TOMMY!!!!

Does anyone do any sea kayaking ? We’ve taken it up over the last year (at gone and abroad) and getting into it more..now looking at buying our first kayaks and planning some further adventures home and oversees (when the world opens up again) ..just thought I’d see if any other Hibees are into it...
Has anyone had any experiences or encounters with the above? I'm really interested in this sort of stuff and I'm interested to know if other members have had experiences that they cant explain? Ghosts, Strange creatures, UFO's, aliens etc, please post your stories below if you want to share them.
Watching a good programme about the Mississippi tonight, it brought to mind one of my favourite and iconic opening lines to a song : “The Mississippi delta was shining like a national guitar”. from Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’....... so visually emotive. Any others?
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.
It’s a subject that absolutely fascinates me. The universe is so vast that that intelligent life must exist, even if it’s not widespread. What bothers me is our way of looking, we search for radio waves, what if other civilisations don’t commicate that way?
This idea came up on the Bangers podcast last night (sort of) when we were talking about the guy that tried to jet-ski to one of the Scottish Islands to get his Nat King Cole (think it took 4 hours and I imagine he'd have been walking like John Wayne when he got there) and it led to comparisons...
Happy Pythagoras Theorem Day to all.
December 16, 2020 (12/16/20 or 16/12/20): 12˛ + 16˛ = 20˛
Next one is
July 24, 2025 (7/24/25 or 24/7/25): 7˛ + 24˛ = 25˛
Is it part of the loan deal that he got to star in the Co-op Christmas ad this year? :wink:
I often wonder at TV and film studios choices when it comes to remaking old classics.
For example, one remake that should never have been conceived never mind actually cast, filmed and released was The Pink Panther.
How did they think they were going to improve on those almost perfect...
Tomorrow night brings us the final episode of The Undoing. If you haven't been following theiis excellent mini series, I suggest you leave this thread immediately before doing so. It's on Sky Atlantic.
I have warmed considerably to Hugh Grant since his self deprecating and quite brilliant...
Couldn't see a thread on this already, but what stuff do you like that you would consider a guilty pleasure (or you wouldn't necessarily be telling your mates you were into it)?
Mine would be Lana Del Ray and shows like Come Dine With Me and Four in a Bed. And First Dates.
It’s almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but I’m guessing that at some point in time we’re all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and I’m only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but I’m sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
Been watching a load of old music videos on YouTube today. For me Freddie Mercury's solo stuff was pretty awful.
What else in the music industry probably should not have happened?
This question came up on Shortbangers last week, and i thought it was really good, so the point in this thread is to answer the question and then pose your own “would you rather” for the next person.
Would you rather get a paper cut between your fingers every time you touched paper, or bite...
Can anyone recommend any driving instructors for lessons in Edinburgh?
Just been to the exhibition in Gallery of Modern Art (TWO).
Great exhibition and well worth going to see if you can get tickets.
If you don’t know who Ray Harryhausen is that’s a pity but I bet you have enjoyed seeing his work in old movies like Clash of The Titans or Sinbad etc
I took a...
Is there a market for old match tickets?
I have a good amount of tickets from matches over the years inc AEK Athens, Odense and a few other Euro nights.
I have ticket from Nantes V Rennes in the 90’s
Some concert ticket stubs too.
Just wondered as I thought something on another thread but...
We’re considering/have decided to get a dog - we know the types we’d like (one of my kids has allergies so we need to look for a hypoallergenic). List has been narrowed to Miniature Schnauzer, Bichon Frise, West Highland Terrier.
Does anyone know where I start?
Has passed away, aged 90.
One of Scotland’s finest ever actors and the quintessential James Bond.
2020 can really **** off.
Following the death of SC, I want to ask the Hibee community their opinion.
Mines is Brosnan, but that was probably generational - that and Tomorrow Never Dies is IMO the best Bond film.
