It's really simple people.   Scorch is right, the My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch! thread (although a great place to get out the stresses of the day) is very negative, let us celebrate the things that hav

Stepped out into the garden 15 minutes ago; Found out nature had used a bucket, some H20 and some cold to produce me an awesome plinking target;    

My wife and I found out she is pregnant with our first child last weekend. Obviously we are absolutely over the moon and weirdly I'm not panicking. She doesn't want to tell anyone yet until we are a l

Pi day is every year, it's just that this year Pi day is extra special.


3, 14 is every year (in America)

3, 14 15 is every 100 years.


3, 14 15 9:26:53.59 is also every 100 years.


523 years ago was 3, 14 1592 6:53:59.


Both of those annoy me because the "0" from the start of the time in hours is missing and because the date is in American.


I suppose the problem then is that 14-3-2015 09:26:53.59 isn't sciency enough.






I just realised:

After a depressing morning where it looked like our wet stock wasn't going to be within acceptable variances for our roughly six month audit we somehow clawed it back.


Now all that's left to go tomorrow is standards. So most of our staff have spent the day deep cleaning like hell.


If we score 4 greens that's 2% of what I've earned since our last one which was November. And the bonus will clear just in time for my mate's stag where we're paintballing (something I've not really done) and then hitting up a casino (something I've definitely never done).


Given its Reading I might still suggest the Mall (do they run Sat games?), probably works out about the same price?


It doesn't depend on this bonus but it'd certainly be welcome.

Never been to the mall, but do anything airsoft.


Once you've played, and then try paintball, paintball is utter *suitcase*.


As for the casino, have a budget in your head and don't exceed it. I learned the hard way over a couple of nights when in Melbourne, and lost a *bramston pickle* fortune, back in 2003.


Never gambled since though, so learned!

I'm wondering how much an average day paintballing is. See if I can tempt them to the right side.


I mean I could get my old two tone up and running, lend that out and we could then split the costs still equally for a couple of rentals and green fee. It'd be a perfect opportunity to try the Mall too.


As for the casino, there's very definitely going to be a budget. I'll leave my cards in my room I think. Not that I normally have much spare anyway. Probably end up playing Blackjack and Roulette as I've never done slots or really anything else.


I do need to learn how to play poker for back at the hotel though. Yes I'm ashamed, 24 years old and never played poker (probs doesn't help my mum ended up over 10k in debt because her ex was an online poker addict).

Paintball walk on stag/birthday/celebration days are insanely expensive. You think it's cheap at say 10 each for rental but at 6-7 quid for 100 balls in arenas that are pretty much designed around static firefights betwwen cover you can away allot.


If 10 of you go together you are easily going to be able to run a private day at most airsoft sites for the same money l And have more ammo, have full auto and usually play in an area setup for realistic/balanced play that isn't just sitting behind a wall hosing blindly.


Plus full auto gas blowback > tippman a5 rental guns.
