I know there's quite a few posters on here who are interested in matters of the cosmos, so I thought I'd start a thread to keep us all together.
Im currently watching a documentary on dark matter, a subject that I find fascinating. The latest theory seems to be that it is comprised from a particle...
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.)
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...
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.
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...
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. 👍
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.
Enjoying a rather nice bottle of rioja.
If you're a Jam fan, the concert from Westfalenhalle in Germany is currently on Sky Arts, brill concert from 1980
Can anyone recommend a pair of comfortable, wireless earphones which I can use while I fall asleep?
I've got good over-ears and wired in-ear headphones, but neither are much good to me as I sleep on my side.
The big pair are great when I lie flat, but I can't fall asleep like that and the...
Has anyone done this before?
Would anyone have concerns about buying this way if they found a house they loved?
Now before you answer that, in the interests of transparency, I want to admit that Iíve got a professional interest in your answer.
Iíve recently started up an online property...
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...
Was just reminded by the weather we've had of a gig probably a good twelve or thirteen years ago. Back when you used to be able to get cheap tickets for gigs on eBay, we got four tickets for Julian Casablancas from the Strokes at Glasgow ABC. Drove through from Montrose to Glasgow in the snow with...
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.
Can anyone recommend a pub or music quiz via YouTube or Spotify or the likes and use over zoom? TIA
Shortbangers 25 is available now, usual mix of nonsense and some small doses of Hibs content chucked in.
Post up titles of films, TV, books, songs/albums that arenít necessarily the best in class, but would be considered genre defining.
For example :
Sci-fi: Star Wars (might even have to categorise that more specifically)
Britpop: Common People
Pretty simple one.
My phone is one - I often give my partner a lift to her work, to appointments and the like and the phone has become the perfect time wasting device when I'm waiting on her. Music, podcasts, games, audiobooks. On a training course with business, never alone with a phone.
50 years old today. (God that's made me feel old!)
Give it an anniversary listen.
This has to be the best Twitter thread ever.🤣🤣🤣
Anyone suffering a power cut at the moment ?
Which one are you? Iím a pointless man myself.
Has there ever been a better or cooler band ever?
... bit mad but beautiful scenery
