    Duelling ( with wax bullets ), cannon shooting & tug of war used to be events at the start of the modern olympics; I'd like to see those brought back for sure- especially... well, all of them

    I have seen first hand ( sort of ) people who have ^that kind of attitude towards job offers & wanting to enter the employment ladder half way up, but without any real qualifications or training to have earned it as such, so there is some truth there. However, in my case there are plenty of jobs around, yes, jobs which I would apply for in a second; none of them are within a 15-20 mile radius though & I don't drive ( even failed my CBT, not a natural biker I guess... ) so all I can do is scour the (very) local area for anything & hope something comes up. I've applied for dozens of jobs and had only 2 interviews, no offers- all I have at the moment is a 2.5 hour a week cleaning job which I'm grateful for. Not everyone who complains there is a lack of work is a lazy scrounger or snob who thinks menial, minimum wage work is below them, some of us are just screwed by our location and lack of transport ( links ).

    Q. Which countries are the following cities in: 1) London 2) Edinburgh 3) Belfast 4) Cardiff Clue: 'UK', 'Britain', 'GB' & 'UK of GB' are not a countries. Point being that if something affects the whole UK, then fair enough to say UK or Britain etc ( such as a change of central government for example ), but if an event happens which is specific to a certain part of the Union, ( say, an event happening in a Scottish city ), then you don't expect to hear "Britain celebrated Hogmanay today" on the news do you? No, that would be odd and rather inaccurate because it is only celebrated by Scots, in Scotland primarily ( since it's a Scottish tradition, not a British tradition as such ). Kapish?

    Did you contact him to say it didn't fit/ request to return it for a refund before leaving the neutral feedback?

    He said: "Sooner or later either Jordon or Peter will lose the custody battle and one of them will have to keep Harvey" followed by: "Its not surprising that Jordon wants to marry a boxer, she needs someone strong enough to stop Harvey from f**king her" or words very similar to that. The first part is very cruel yet rather amusing ( few people will admit to that however ), the second part isnt funny and doesnt really make much sense unless Im missing something ( I dont watch either Peter or katie's 'reality' shows, rather stick pins in my eyes )...

    3.8v each huh? If 3.7v is enough to kill the bulb ( standard batts are 3.0v right? ) then it could just be they are too high voltage- jiggly thing is rather odd though. Try one rechargeable & one standard batt together to see if the lower combined voltage works maybe? Sounds like you need lower voltage batts to be honest..

    Curious indeed.. If I make a few suggestions to try:- 1)check the voltage of the non-rechargeables and rechargeables, just to see if there is a ( large ) variation or not. 2)check the size/length of both types to make sure the rechargables arent shorter & not making proper contact inside the torch 3)I would say check the polarity incase they are opposite to what normal batts are ( A123 cells have the button-end of the cell as the negative... ), but you arent a grade-A noob so... Any chance you can change the inards of the torch around to use a different bulb and reflector gubbins? ( I dont know what this torch looks like so I may just be talking *badger*s )

    Meh, people will always say its a good idea to prevent scumbags from inbreeding, and someone else will counter them by bringing some nazi reference- thing is, scumbags & chavs do not = jews and gypsies, though then again, modern gypsies are just like traveling chavs... Anyway, the government is talking about putting a cap on child benefits, so that families of layabout & scroungers wont be able to 'earn' more money from the welfare state compared to the average household income of a working family. Thus, there is less of an incentive to sit around and inbreeding in order to generate income instead of going out and getting a job ( or atleast trying ). Funny, I could swear these are all ideas that have been raised in this very thread... ( Hi Dave! ).

    Okay, tell us? I work in retail and some of the customer's I've dealt with are total cocks, but no violent ones thankfully- not sure I'd just stand there & take it like a good little drone...

    I dunno, its sods law sometimes at the checkout; I go to pack someones bag, and they say 'I dont need a bag thanks', then I proceed to watch them struggle with an arm-full of shopping as they drop half on the floor when they go to leave, or, the person only has 2 or 3 small-ish items so I dont bother putting them in a bag, then they ask 'can I have a bag please?' after I've finished serving them Depends on the shop & checkout though I guess- some places charge for bags so you HAVE to ask for one, other places are 'pack it yourself' type checkouts ( goods get scanned then slid down the slope ). I stick as much as possible in my rucksack & the rest goes in an old carrier bag to save ending up with hundreds of the bloody things at home..

    Cramp: aye, usually about 2-3 am, wake up with a sudden wrenching pain in my left leg usually ( upper calf/ back of the knee area ), best solution is to jump out of bed and stand up- stretching the muscle actually helps alot, rather than curling up in a ball and wanting to be sick. Only had cramp so bad I wanted to cry once, few years ago late at night as usuall; curled up on the floor with tears running down my face, couldnt walk properly for nearly a week afterwards... not nice at all. Manners: yup, sometimes people seem like they expect you to hold the door open for them- best thing to do with ingorant people like that ( women especially ) is to say 'you're welcome' in a nice sarcastic tone of voice- if they say 'excuse me?', well, you know what to say back to them to make the feel guilty or about this >> << big. Teenagers and older couples are particulary bad about walking along a pavement sensibly; the pavement is wide enough for 2 people, they walk 2 abreast, they see you coming in the opposite direction, yet they still insist on not switching to single file, forcing you to turn sideways and step half into the road to get past. Same is true when you are coming up behind people -usually older couples- and they insist on not stepping to one side to let you past, even though they can hear you behind them or glanced over their shoulders to see what was making the stomping sound ( my size 10s to let you know I want to get past you ignorant bar stewards ). Even if I say 'excuse me' some people just look at you like you're asking them for their wallets- I just want to walk past you, please stop acting like its a hassle for you to step a side for 2 seconds. This time of year its at its worst though- tourist season ( or silly season astis known locally ), when the roads and pavements are full of gormless idiots with DSLRs hangin off their chests, staring up at the funny old buildings with funny chimneys etc- gtfo of the road you idiots!

    Male prostitution anyone, plenty of lonely old mingers ladies out there willing to pay for company... Rant: ~7 months ago my boss employed his girlfriend after another member of staff left ( no loss there though ). Sounds dodgy as fook but was actually fine as she is a hard worker and rather fit ( ). She had some issues with kidney stones so we ( the other 2 staff members ) swapped & covered shifts as required- no one can help being genuinely ill afterall. Now all of a sudden though she can no longer work late shifts as she suffers from panic attacks ( at the thought of working alone at night ). Wtf? Since we are on a naval base there is no general public to deal with, nothing has changed to make the job harder or more intimidating, yet the rest of us are forced to work all the late shifts until we can employ an extra person to cover most of the lates. To make matters worse the other guy I work with ( my little sister's boyfriend as it happens- indeed, its who you know, not what qualifications you have ) has just gotten a new job as a warehouse supervisor & equipment tester for some events firm, so hes leaving in a fortnight. Luckily, we also break up for summer in about 1 week ( sort of- reduced hours for another 2 weeks as we have the horrible little sea/air/army cadets on base doing there activities & then we properly close for 4 weeks of summer leave ). This bites, but its hardly suprising really- employing your friends is one thing, but your bird? And pissing off other people just so you dont have to work lates? Takes the ###### indeed...

    Citizens advice bureau should be helpful too, but I would get 'it' in writing from the council that you definately dont owe money- verbal agreement being worth squat-diddly ( or not, humour me ).

    I think all of this assumes the bailiffs will be successful in entering the property in the first place- I get the distinct feeling they wont be. If they do come a-knockin' though, shove a copy of the letter from the Uni under their nose ( through the letterbox, make sure all the other guys in the flat know to not open the door ); see what the bailiff' responce is to that...

    Stop stealing my thoughts. I have to agree completely, criminals who would happily steal your possesions, threaten or harm your family, even try to kill you, have no right to hide behind the human rights act themseves when they so willingly violate other peoples right to live in peace & free from fear/ harm etc etc. The number of times you see smug scum bags laughing as they know their solicitor can use some obscure technicality to get them a reduced sentence or escape charges altogether makes me sick; just as bad a a criminal being able to sue you after they hurt themselves breaking into your house- maddening yet true. I dont believe we should have a free-for-all and be allowed to beat the scum to death for just stealing a tv or xbox ( 3 strikes system perhaps?... ), but they shouldnt be allowed the luxury of xboxes and sky tv in their prison cells; prison used to be a means of punishing wrong-doers and discouraging them from breaking the law in future. Seems these days prison is cushier than ever, and lags get let out early due to overcrowding, only to go on and reoffend & get another slap on the wrist. Someone build some more bloody prisons and take away the entertainment centres, and try some proper rehabilitation techniques..

    So, do you often pickup bus loads of lone woman after dark, hangin around on street corners & bus stops?... But yeah, I hate it when one of the kitchen porters comes into the shop to buy more fags, with their breath and clothes reeking cigarette smoke because they've obviously just finished off their last parket, its horrid- especially when you have to try and not gag / vomit allover them as you serve them ( never leaves a good impression on the customers... ).

    Its almost as bad as F1; atleast we win that occasionally, but the only time its exciting is when someone crashes ( but doesnt die ).

    Gay = happy, colourful. I find the use of the word 'gay' to describe homosexuals highly offensive- its been hijacked by homosexy people, and now its been highjacked by unpleasant people to insult other people and things . Language evolves, as do meanings and definititions, though the oxford english dictionary people might disagree a bit.. That reminds me, must watch countdown & Rachel Riley's *albartroth* more often; rather nice....

    Interestingly enough, there have been a few good documentories about recycling and what not in the last few years, and a few things stick in my mind: Cardboard & paper waste can only be stored for upto a fornight before it starts to rot ( indoors, warehouse ), after that it has to be incinerated; not so bad really as it is burned to make electricity. Aluminium can in principle be stored indefinately, but there is only so much space at the depots; the councils have to sell this metal before they un out of space, otherwise it ends up in landfill. This is due to it often being cheaper for companies/ manufactures etc to buy new metal than to buy used stuff, so all that effort recycling your tin cans and such goes to waste alot of the time ( there are some good wiki articles about the difficulties of processing reclaimed aluminium and the toxic by-products that are diffiuclt to dispose of too ). Its definately worth making some effort though, regardless of how worthwhile or not one finds recycling to save the rainsforests & all that b*ll*cks.

    Moderate murderer- not quite mass, but more than a few... Anyway, his actual apparent motive was that he had dodged income tax for nearly 20 years whilst working as a cabbie ( self employed I'd guess, makes sense ), and then when the IRS finally caught up with him, he was landed with a £100k bill. He was hoping that his mothers will woudl be able to help cover most or all of that debt, but he found out that his twin brother ( the one he killed ) was the main beneficiary. Hence, he flipped his lid & decided to kill his brother, the solicitor incharge of the will, the solicitors wife ( ouch... ), and a couple former work collegues ( cabbies ). Then he went for a nice afternoon drive and gunned down a few other random victims before shooting himself- several others were also injured but not killed thankfully. So yeah, blame the IRS & blame his mother. And him. But not guns.

    Okay, new direction: Todays rant: OMFG killer urban fox histeria! Seems to be on the front of half today's papers, but it strikes me as being a load of *badger*s. If you live in an area where you KNOW there are urban foxes ( you can hear them from quite some distance away & often see them too at night ), dont leave food out for them ( as they will associate your garden/ house with din-dins ) & dont leave your back door wide open 'due to the heat'( foxes would be the least of your worries these days )- its just as hot outside as it is inside since theres little to no breeze; christ, in an £800k house you'd think they'd have airconditioning.. Its rather unusal for a fox to sneak into the house and attack sleeping babies, but its no different to wild bears or raccoons wondering into your home looking for food ( in America ). Now we're just gonna end up with the poncy twats in red on horse back saying how the government shoudlnt have banned fox hunting. Typical media hysteria...
