  2. They are not alone...... Perhaps one for the LONQR thread..!
  3. ........ is one who knows how to play the bagpipes, but doesn't.
  4. Shocking as it is, the lack of censorship, and huge disparity between the image subject matter every day is one of the things that makes this thread great.
  5. Saw a field fire (summer, pre-harvest) on the farm when i was young, and of course called the fire brigade, and ran to find out what was going on with my Dad. Some buttfuck walked into the middle of one of our fields, poured petrol over himself, and lit a match. Not the way i'd choose to end myself! Will NEVER forget that BBQ smell Thankfully, he only ruined an acre of barley, rather than 20+
  6. that's exactly what it is. Battersea Power Station in London. Was decommissioned in the early '80's, and has been derelict ever since, despite many many many re-development proposals.

    Two old ladies were outside their nursing home having a smoke (that's the only place they could smoke at the nursing home) when it started to rain.One of the ladies pulled out a condom, cut off the end, put it over her cigarette, and continued smoking.Lady Two asked, "What's that?"Lady One replied, "A condom."Lady Two asked, "Where'd you get it?" Lady One replied, "You can get them at any drugstore." The next day, Lady Two hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a package of condoms. The guy looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, in
  9. i'm with you on that.... Enjoy an Arran. I am introducing a select multi-national group in the office to Single Malts. Anyone that travels has to pick up the next letter of the alphabet at Duty Free. We started with an Arran. We are now at 'H'. Bought a Highland Park last week. Some letters are easier than others.......! Arran is a great day out. we used to do an annual cycle, "round Arran in 9 pints". There's a 60 mile coastal road, and plenty of hostelries en route....
