I was out for a run this afternoon and had to stop and take a few pics

As I was taking the pics, a presumably local woman walked round the corner, saw what I was doing and laughed "yeah, everyone does that" :)

We were plagued by the bastards nesting in our unit and next door's - which was a big recovery mob at the time.

A few years ago, there must have been twenty of them screeching and shitting everywhere. One of the drivers shot one of them. Not the best solution and, frankly, it made no difference to level of the noise or seagull shit.

That night - and every night thereafter - as he was closing up, the whole flock of them attacked him, screeching and pecking, flying at his head and hands. Every time he went into the yard on foot, they started screeching and squawking. Never bothered with anyone else.

He left. I'm sure they followed him and still attack him on sight.


Why didn't he just shoot the rest? Obviously one less isn't going to solve the problem.

I think the issue was that he was a recovery driver, not a marksman, and the one he did shoot was more good luck than anything.

Presumably that Irn Bru coffin is a subtle political statement as to the 'death' of the once popular drink, post sugar tax debacle. The tartan one, I'm not so sure about.

 

Or have they taken the sugar out of shortbread fingers, too?

I was just googling autoshite and this image appeared , it looks like somebody gave them a banner for a laugh because nobody looks prepared for the pictureattachicon.gifIMG_1181.JPG

 

That picture must be from when dugong/watanabe had the banner (iirc he had it made) - a looooooooooong time ago (early this decade?).

I now have that banner, and am its third custodian.

He should have thought of it as a target rich environment ;)
Possibly a shotgun would have been more effective?
Anyway seagulls are quite tasty so I've heard!

Edit actually thinking about it, with some of the people I work with they would have been bringing a BBQ to work along with an air rifle!

'Spirited' driving in the Berling yesterday, and during a particularly twisty bit of B-road part of the gear knob fell off. It felt like that bit in Fast and Furious where they switch on the OMGNOZYO and the car all starts shaking and falling apart and that.

Mine did this driving to shitefest! I've been picking the peeling vinyl for months now, then on the a9 I picked a new bit and the top came off... Wedged it back on and haven't fucked with it since!

I have decided to be more positive.

Therefore, all the parts I just replaced that didn't solve the problem I at least know aren't part of the problem.

That was probably 1996, newest vehicle is L reg, the red Fez hasn't fallen apart around the rear arches. That's the nearest June 26 that was a Saturday.


Nice and up to date then. I guess they wanted a royalty-free image.

Satire dear boy. Political figures have been satirised since democracy was introduced by the Greeks, it’s part of a fine thousands of year old tradition. Enjoy it!

Friday 13th and the lightning bolt missed my house (by about 8ft) in the early hours of the morning. HUGE BANG!
Okay, power was out for a while (until 4:00pm) but no-one hurt - and only damage was the power pole it hit!
