  1. An update on the other day; verdict is "not much we can do, phone us if they come back. They probably won't come back though" Can't even be annoyed really, as I didn't catch the plate on the van and it's probably on fake plates anyway.

    Did they achieve the panda car effect by buying 50/50 blue and white cars and swapping the doors?
  3. Some old school places seem to charge bugger all for some reason. A friend of mine is supposedly having a very crusty spaceship civic welded up for £350. Might be a case of being a one man band with low overheads.
  4. My review of them is such: like a penguin but better, but not enough better to actively seek them out. Mum is going back at Easter, so I'll ask her to bring me more than one pack next time if she's got space.
  5. Already reported, they're sending someone round to take a statement.
  6. Just had a bloke at the door asking about the Volvo. Said I'd take £500 for it, he said he'd give me £50, I politely told him he was a chancer. He then started threatening me, calling me a pedo. The other two blokes in the van started shouting they'd report me to the police. I think it might be time to get the Volvo shifted up to the unit.
  7. My mum has been in Australia for a few weeks. She's just been round to show me holiday photos (most of which I'd seen on Facebook already, but that's ok) and drop off the things she bought me there. We have a tshirt that says Perth on it, a beer coozie the same, koala socks, and the best part: Like a penguin but better! The 0.5 star health rating = delicious.
  8. For a very long time now I've struggled to have any sort of sleeping pattern, the time I'd sleep would drift around the day somewhat randomly, and sometimes I'd miss a night of sleep altogether. But for the past week I've successfully been in bed and asleep by around 9pm (including one day where I lay down to charge my phone at 6pm, fell asleep and woke up at 4am) and been awake and out of bed between 5 and 7am. Doesn't sound like much, but it's something I've struggled with for a long time, even when I was working. I'm still largely doing bugger all, but I feel much better, I feel like I'll actually be able to achieve something with my time now. It also shows that coffee wasn't as much of the problem as I'd assumed; I drank shitloads yesterday right up to 7pm and I was asleep by 9 and woke up at 6. All of this has been without a single alarm!
  9. We don't have that around here alas! The capability must exist because at bus stations there's screens with the info, but no way to see it yourself.
  10. I have to get the bus into town for an appointment, I usually get one at quarter past the hour on the main road outside the farm. I waited and waited and it didn't turn up. It got to 20 to and I decided to walk down to the village to get the one at 10 to. As soon as I've crossed the road to walk across the field what turns up but the bus I was waiting for in the first place. What an utter bastard the universe is.
  11. I'm in this picture and I don't like it.
  12. Ah, so it's something to do with revolution?
  13. I still don't understand what the sport squash is. I think it's like tennis but different?
  14. My friend is American and went to uni in Scotland. She didn't know what squash was so drank a big glass of it neat.
  15. Car carpets are inevitably horrendously dirty. As you say, they'll be covered by mats anyway! I took the carpet out of my 205 and pressure washed it, the water that came off it was filthy, came up lovely; probably not really viable on a modern though. The last time I paid someone to wash my car it was a tenner and he gave me a fiver off because he knocked one of the side repeaters off. I gave him the fiver as a tip because we both worked at Dominos.

  17. From an everyday perspective, not in the slightest. But from a grammatical point of view, it's a valid sentence
  18. I think my brain got got got got got stuck in a loop
  19. I used to do over 100 miles a day 6 days a week, including in salt season, I found they did an ok job of prolonging the time between needing to clean the headlights with glass cleaner by at least 20 seconds.
  20. I managed to get the headlight wipers on my second volvo working perfectly, then a big fucker of a deer jumped into its path and it fucked the passenger side one. It fucked the headlight too, but at least I had a spare for that! The other two I've had had had them totally removed.

    That's the real reason the traffic cops used 850s; you can prang them and just reverse out of the wall and carry on.
  22. There was a couple of England fans holding the gate open for them, it was the police that drive through the gate!
