    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    people, namely young white men in particular, who shout insults out of car windows while you're cycling. I mean, seriously, how old are you? IF you've something to say to me, get out of the damn car and say it to my effing face, sheesh... and this was at 7.30 in the morning, while we were both, I don't doubt, on our way to work and stone cold sober.

    you could just save more, and live on tesco value beans for a month. then you get your mp5 AND bike. beleive me, I try explaining the "if you save for it, and go a little without, you can buy it!" principle to my wife and its like I've just tried to explain chaos theory to her. In latin. While at the bottom of a well. seriously...

    yeah, but aside from the sewers... Work. Thats what I hate. Being so far up the swanny with a Visa card (thank you, Homeland Insecurity, for ruining my finances, its greatly appreciated...) that you have to come to work everyday at a job you're ambivalent at best about simply because its the only one that pays enough. being an entire ocean away from a decent pint...

    ah, I feel like I understand now- perhaps you should contact those guys and see if they'll give you a job in their PR department. I'm not surprised its a little known and understood condition with THEM explaining it. Thats also a lousy condition to have, mate.

    I hate the fact you can't get crunchy nut cornflakes in my local supermarket (whats so effing super about that?)

    right, I'd worked that much out. other than that, it appears to be a um, muscle, possibly joint, or maybe sinew, um, complaint? that um... well, after that, it all goes a bit fuzzy...

    I can see why you hate that website- utterly uninformative and poorly written- just spent the last ten minutes trying to read their "what is HMS?" page, and I'm still none the wiser.

    true. Everyone knows the only things they do well are non-sexy knickers and sandwiches. they should ditch the rest of their good and just concentrate on these two quality items. "come to M&S, for all your bready snack and undercracker needs!"

    ah right- yeah, its hard to define a nation without referring to it by name, when in fact what you mean is "the people living on that particular part of the planet" rather than the part of the planet itself.

    um, the world is full of 'em pal- you can't escape! and I can sort of see why he was sarcastic- I spent many a long period out of work in the Uk, and I've never once blamed it on immigrants- if they can get work, then its the very culture that prefers to buy stuff as cheap as it can get rather than pay a sane wage, leaving the door wide open for illegal immigrants to get press-ganged on arrival into rubbish jobs earning buggerall and living in squalor. Personally, I'm of the opinion that its people who've no decency left, not a blob of soil and rock surrounded by salt water. Thats what grinds my gears, anyhoo...

    what gets me- people who spend an inordinate amount of time throwing personal insults at people via PM, and then claim to have said nothinng at all offensive in front of everyone else, knowing damn well the person they've just been insulting isn't going to rise to a public tit-for-tat flame war. and then everyone else complaining when the abuse-hurler gets banned. Sorry, just grinds my gears. and yes, I likes a bit of scrumpy when Real Ale is non-forthcoming- and kudos to Rhino for the Maiden reference- been ages since I've had baked beans for breakfast too...

    oi, I LIKE scrumpy... and magners is ok- bit sweet for my liking, but not bad stuff- tastes like sparkling apple juice with a hint of happy brain death

    what, the three litre bottles of Scrumpy they sell in Londis? ah, great days, great days...

    well precisely. Waste not, want not, and I can always take it home with me.

    apparently it means a drinking problem here. friends warned me when I came over- you can't go to the pub all the time there, they'll think you're a tramp. what? but...I LIKE going to the pub...well, not the pubs here, where its impossible to get served unless you find a seat at the bar, and even then you have to wait for ages, and if not you have to wait on a waiter to serve you, and then you still have to tip AND spend more on less beer thats not as good or strong or tasty as the stuff I can get by walking into any real-ale pub in the UK. obviously I mean the pubs back home. and yes, Bud is lousy here- its weird, but ordinarily the stuff a country sends overseas is the rubbish stuff, but in the US, its like the other way round- bud here is seriously lousy, but the funny thing is is that if you ask a waiter or barman what percentage alcohol is in the beer, they'll tell you, without hesitation, that all the beers are in or around the 5% mark, when they clearly aren't. and worse, beer manufacturers here are under NO obligation to put the abv on the side of their products. This means that you can't gauge how much you've drunk unless you've already got a pretty good idea what 5% does to you. Sorry, I mean absolutely no disrespect to America or AMericans, but having come from a country where drinking is a business to be take seriously (they aren't even any obligation to fill the beer all the way to the top of the glass! and they don't use pint glasses but call them pints! and the heads can be massive!! WTF?!?!?), it all can be a little traumatic. ALl I want is to be able to walk into a bar, ask for a pint, actually GET a pint, that has a reasonable head on it (meaning less than a half-inch), and comes to the top of the glass. I'm not going to spill it down myself, for gods' sake...
