and away he goes, sifting through his daily delivery of 50 newspapers, desperately searching for another crap cartoon, all doom and gloom.

Jeez, the penny's just dropped. VNA is Fraser. From Dads Army.

Can't be,  Fraser wss funny sometimes, VNA is just the pub bore.

We have an unwanted cat that visits Sharp Hall and I keep a few small old soft potatoes by the backdoor to throw at it. I have little chance of hitting the cat so I throw them at the fence to make a bang and they fall down into the ornamental border on the East lawns.  An unexpected bonus last year was that I ended up with a little crop of potatoes that had grown from the ones that I had launched.

What you need is one of these.  :)

Haven't seen one of them since I was a kid , its a wonder they are still allowed to sell them.

Utterly dismayed by the rabble in the House of Commons yesterday, howling, braying, childish behaviour over the utterance of a couple of words. In ordinary life, all of us would have replied with a similar comment and moved on. Not this fucking useless shower of gnats piss. They make headline news out of it. Those ruddy foreigners must be pissing themselves at us
Totally agree. The whole set up is archaic and confrontational. Facing each other. Voting by walking through separate 'lobbies'. Blackrod etc. History and ceremony is one thing, but about time they migrated out of that ridiculous building into something more suitable for a modern democratic society.

Foc that, can you imagine the amount of money they would spend on something more sensible?  It would go massively over budget then be found not fit for purpose !

lol I got the opposite prob VNA, if I get that "ooh think I may need to shit" light twinge, five minutes later ive gotta be squatting somewhere with me trousers and pants around me ankles or i'll honestly shit myself. And also cannot go through the night without having to get up and pee at least twice, despite knocking my beloved "last cup of tea of the day" in bed on the head. I hate being old...

I thought I was the only person with that " need to shit problem" , I have found that avoiding a full bladder helps as this seems to put pressure on my rectum.
Like VNA I can have nights where I sleep through, but sometimes I have to get up twice to piss,  doesn't seem to make much difference what my tea intake is.
For all of us senior guys who have done manual work all our lives old age just sucks, I have certainly got my moneys worth out of the NHS in the last 3 years.

Br**it got booted off this thread as it took over the thread and now the subject of war has taken over!

Rememember the people who fought and died in all wars in the way you want ,but please stop posting your political views and opinions, at best it is boring but too many times it is done just to cause division and argument.

And by the way, even though the author drew on his experiences during the war, "All Quiet On The Western Front" is historical fiction, not fact.

Now for focs sake ,the whole lot of you, shut up and go polish your bikes or something.

Foccing BT Sport, sat down to watch the MotoGP and halfway through the second lap the result came up on the bottom of the screen and the results for the Moto2 and Moto3 races. Unbelievable, and the presenters get worse every race and the claptrap they spout , bring back Parrish and Cox, at least they made me laugh sometimes.
Sounds like you had a nightmare in a bubble car

Yeah, I needed that like I need a third armpit. :)

If this link works it shows a Yamaha four wheeled " motorcycle" !

General / Niken or not?
« on: 29 October 2018, 03:41:05 PM »
Would you buy a Yamaha Niken?

For me it is a big no, £13500 for a 263 kilo MT09 with an extra wheel, I don't care how much confidence you get in pushing the front end, its not a motorcycle, its a tricycle.

Got T boned on my MT09 yesterday,  an arrogant stupid blind bitch in a Range Rover ignored the give way and drove straight onto the roundabout right into the left side of me.  As I was lying on the floor wondering what the foc had just happened she walked up to me , looked at me and said " you don't seem hurt much, I"ll move my car",  Then I just heard a  man shout at her " leave your frigging car where it is".
Next thing I knew I was in back of ambulance on my way to hospital.
Got of lightly I think, mild concussion from my head hitting floor, no broken bones but left knee and ankle look like a pair of turnips.
Helmet is buggered with massive scrapes along right side, no idea about bike yet, it was recovered by a local garage.
If it wasn't for my helmet and decent boots and armour in my leathers I would have been a injured a lot worse.

If I was you I would enquire at the local Synagogue, they usually have plenty of covering off cuts, that should do the job.

The Highway Code is going to be changed to encourage people to open their car door using the " dutch reach" and at the same time Cycling UK want the code to say vehicles must give at least 1.5 metres space when overtaking a cyclist., why can't cyclists give 1.5 meters space when passing parked cars as well?
At the same time time Cycling UK are also asking for the advice for cyclists to wear a safety helmet and fluorescent clothing to be removed as this encourages " victim blaming" and as everyone knows cyclists are never in the wrong!

The big problem with any electrical vehicle is you have to charge the batteries using electricity. If everybody in the future is running an electric vehicle how much power has to be generated to just to charge all those batteries?
To be green it all has to be done using renewable power supplies, so massive wind farms and solar panel farms etc have to be built, where are they going to build them?  Sticking a few solar panels and a little wind turbine on your garage is not going to do it!
Has there been any studies done into how much power a country like the UK would have to generate if every vehicle was replaced by an electric one?
The grid just about manages to cope when the adverts come on during Coronation Street and everybody sticks the kettle on :)

Revenue for the goverment!  Because that is what it is all about, the solution to every problem is to tax it!
It’s not a tax, it’s a compulsory charge, retailers are expected to give the money to good causes.

It is revenue for the government, the charge includes vat which last year resulted in a nice £17 million earner.

What has the plastic bag tax achieved? I notice the supermarkets are already making the '5p' bags thinner and smaller already. Any idea where the revenue has gone and how many turtles have actually been saved?

Revenue for the goverment!  Because that is what it is all about, the solution to every problem is to tax it!
Doesn't matter if it is plastic waste, alcohol, tobacco, sugar or anything at all, if it is bad for the environment or your health just tax it because that absolutely and definitely solves the problem every time.

What we need is a "Lily The Pink" invention to solve all the worlds environmental problems :)

To true these new smaller papers are a b*stard to wrap your fish and chips in  :lol

And they tasted better wrapped in newspaper :b . People used to sell bundles of newspapers to the fish and chip shops.
If you were lucky you'd get an interesting bit to read while you ate them.

I can almost hear the Hovis music playing in the background now :lol

We used to take clean newspapers to the chippie when I was a kid and get a bag of chips with scraps on in payment, the good old days before all these shitty sell everything from pizzas, burgers, chinese, indian, thai all in one shop takeaways took over every street.

Gets my goat just recently is I am seeing more than you would expect, cars without a number plate on the front but it is sitting in the window. Now, I am pretty sure it is intentional and a permanent mod (until mot time) because the cars that do it all seem to be spammed up, overly dark windows aftermarket LEDs - audi or VW with the badge painted black -thats another gets my goat.
Anyone else noticed this.

I drive into that shithole Bradford 4 times a week and have come to realise that the locals just regard that as  standard trim.

Its the finance company who own the bike / car in a pcp deal, one thing to watch out for is when you insure the vehicle some insurers will ask who is the owner, you are not the owner ,just the registered keeper.

Gift Aid is a way charities can get more money, you donate £10 and they can claim 25% more back, and you can then claim tax relief on the £10 you donated in your annual tax return.
Most people will probably never claim the tax relief and if you do make a gift aid donation make sure it is for a bona fide charity or community sports club.
