  1. He didn't write everything he put himself in....
  2. yup. Hard to imagine a sport any duller. Even darts is more entertaining!
  3. It's hard to drive when you're playing a banjo, and have to keep remembering 'left, left, left'.....
  4. the most insane failures from the Russian Fox experiment ended up working at FOX..

    they were old enough to drink two years ago, in the developed world!

    they did..... from wikipedia... .... In the final decade of the 6th century AD, the Parthenon was converted into a Christian church dedicated to the Virgin Mary....

    right up there with the magic coffee table
  8. Its the farmer, wondering how he can turn it into a milking machine.
  9. ...today is the 8th Anniversary of our son's adoption, after he joined us at the age of two, after a perfectly shite two years up to that point. He's now the 10 year old brother to our 15 year old daughter, and they are inseparable / fight relentlessly! Both are growing up into 'world citizens' here in the UAE, and will be set for life with friends all over the planet in years to come.
  10. grew up being run around in the back of one of those. Remember having to get the varnish out every autumn
  11. A small vial of smallpox is the answer, they are undoubtedly not vaccinated either.
  12. ex-Gurkha brother-in-law did this a few years ago on a double-hander. Brutal, as you'd imagine. full 360 rolls in big swells, locked down in the tiny cabin - not fun!
  13. it is indeed. My favourite 'weapons' experience was spending 5 hours on a cold January day punting a 19th Century Punt Gun on a river on the East Anglian coast, and getting the opportunity to fire the home-made punt gun - aged 11. a beast. Not this one, but VERY similar. The 'home made' element included a set of old motorcycle shocks in the mount,so as not to rattle the boat into matchwood.
  14. The Arabs seem to love a Faggot-Tractor... plenty over here! (NTTAWWT)
  15. A bit disingenous to separate the Black Watch from Tartan.......
  16. Family arsenal back in the UK... The parts i use, when i'm home: An Aguirre y Aranzabal (Spanish) side-by-side 12 A much much older side-by-side 12, with damascus barrels. The barrels are 'well worn', really bringing out out the steel pattern. A 1940's heavy barreled dogballs, with martini action. used for Pheasant, Partridge, Duck, Goose, Pigeon and Rabbit.
  17. St Abbs, Scotland. Lived not too far from there for many years. Beautiful spot. Used as a location in Avengers: Endgame
  18. send him to the unique 'Wetherspoons'. A traditional coaching Inn, steeped in history.......
  19. just saw your message - was in Abu Dhabi supporting Lucy in her first Rugby 7's tournament... 5 matches - brutal. Don't mess with teenage girls.....!
  20. utterly pathetic. To come up with this banal policy, AND make it email-based shows a complete lack of ....anything, other than HR 101 tick-boxing. If you want to congratulate someone, go up to them, shake their hand, and say 'good job'. If you want to call them out on something, take them aside, and call them out. Positive affirmation is utterly worthless without balance.
  21. i don't give two fucks where he's from. He presides over Institutionally sanctioned rape and abuse. Children have no religion, in my opinion. (and in Ireland, they were Catholic young mothers and their offspring)
  22. if you end up in Abu Dhabi for whatever reason (90 minutes from Dubai) The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and the new Louvre gallery by Jean Nouvel are both worth a visit.
  23. ....Tell that to the children taken off their mothers in Ireland, put in homes, malnourished to death, and buried in unmarked massed graves in their thousands... ..and that's just one Country under the thrall of these fuckers... I'd love to see the Vatican a smoking hole in the ground, with the pope and every complicit cardinal, priest & nun at the bottom.
