My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

I was also told it's very good for you but never that it was nice. Have been eating it for the past couple months once or twice a week now and honestly I've not found a way to make it taste great.. but it doesn't taste bad for me at least!

Got my Citizen Eco Drive (my 21st Birthday present and therefore my current dress watch) out of storage. Of course havinf been in its case its completely dead. Been subjecting it to ambient light levels since Sunday but still no life.

 

Might need to use one of my flashlights or grab a cheap desk lamp to charge it up as I want to be able to use it (and ideally keep it charged)

Have a Google. I seem to recall solar watches can have issues if left in the dark for extended periods.

 

Can't remember the details though. It may need a new battery (rechargeable I mean!), or it may be something to do with the capacitor?

 

Vague post is vague, sorry!

Try this, tin of sieved tomatoes (500g), two little cooking chorizo sausage, three bell peppers and one of those Uncle Bens Microwave rice packs.

 

Dice the chorizo and the peppers rather fine. Cook until chorizo is brown and peppers are hot, add in the sieved tomato and then add the microwave rice and a touch of water to the pan, cook until it looks edible.

 

Excluding the chorizo the above can be had for £2.50 and feeds two, with the chorizo only adding a £1 for the amount you need. It makes a nice meal, is cheap and gives a good balance of veg, carbs, protein, fat and a little salt.

 

Also if you can't cook and cut the above I fear for your intelligence.

I bought one of those from him the other day but a limited colour of Ranger Green.. Couldn't pay him as a gift so I had to go down the regular route to pay with fees. Another gent on another forum wouldnt even allow that so I had to transfer money from my bank to the paypal so I could pay the gent using paypal funds. Stupid system!

Above, why is rice bad?

 

Just reading the new catalogue from heinnie Haynes.

 

TAD gear, what the *fruitcage*? £505.95 for a softshell jacket? Their prices have been taking the puss for years but that is insane.

Yep, it is easy to use and the ones with flavours like the Mexican options are good.

 

Rice is fine enough, it just has a lot of 'Atkins diet, full on carbs' BS about it. Too much is bad but some is fine.

As much as I wouldn't mind eating rice more often, I'll say no to the arsenic.

 

So, finally got confirmation that the 4th member of a group project dropped out of the class, oh goodie...

Yeah, I don't get why TAD gear should cost so much either. It doesn't look that good, and it's not made of unobtainium.

Cheers. Downloaded the watch manual and it suggests in a normal office setting it will take 100 hours from stopped to normal function. I think I'm gonna have a blast with my Scoutlight when I head back to Cambs if its not shown any signs of life if not I'll take it to a specialist.

And aren't nations that consume rice as a staple typically healthier than those which don't?

 

However correlation does not equal causation.

Glad to hear that all it will cost you is...

 

Time!

Well I hope so. Do feel pretty silly having a solar powered watch as my only current dress watch though...

 

If I make it to management it'll probably become a work watch but I'd still worry about breaking it.

Get a casio for work. Don't smash your nice things up!

 

A mate had a jab that my Casio didn't have a built in compass like his fancy bells and whistles watch.

 

 

So I put a miniature compass on the strap. Instant upgrade for all of £1.50

Well if you really wanted to be a smart *albartroth* you could say all analog watches have a compass*

Alo *fruitcage* being on painkillers they ravage your body. Only being able to *suitcase* once every ten days is bloody murder.
