It would save a lot of harm Boac if we agree on your statement.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

I bought a 5-year old Merc, almost brand new full sized spare wheel in the back. Still there 10 years later when I scrapped the car. That wheel had a screw in it. It might have been a short screw but I never tried to take it out as the tyre never lost pressure. Do spare tyres have shelf lifes? They...

At my (...) Bank this morning it is one person inside at a time. I was waiting outside, no shelter, for 40mins. a 3 minute transaction. ludicrous. I had to go at my bank to ask about a standing order not being implemented correctly but I preferred to drop a written request and avoid a similar exper...

Feel what, precisely ?
That feeling of spending more money than necessary and the lack of X thousand of pounds from the bank account.
That’s the one :((
And all that for making a purchase a short time too early!

Capetonian, your answer had the seeds of what I was thinking but I was hopping for something along the great traditions of your past. Ex-Ascot what is knee business?

Is 'them' black people, Cape, or BLM? If 'black people', why has your 'mind changed'?
I see a very interesting answer from Capetonian coming

I would not say offensive, I would have said some theories presented in a less than delicate manner. Not the way to win friends and influence people. It is always interesting how do you define the group of people you consider friends and those you need to influence. If let's say I dislike water-mel...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Trip to Kirkwall today and an appointment with the podiatrist. First visit to town and first podiatrist appointment since the end of February. What a difference it makes to have well-trimmed feet! It felt just like walking on air. Well worth the ferry trip (2 hours each way) but such a pity that al...

Re: Royal Bank of Wankers

Ever since I own a credit card I have a standing order for the full amount to be paid on due date. Today I discovered that last Friday despite having the required amount the card was only partially paid by the account and I have to complete the payment with a separate transaction. And I have to pay ...

Didn't Gillette take a hit with their campaign supporting in an aggressive way a new segment of the market alienating their traditional buyers? It seems they try to cover the mistake they made by claiming the shaving market dropped.

Not sure about Muslims violent crime. About 60% of Albanians are Muslim. I don't think you can combine Muslims and Indians in that statement. There are also African Muslims. There is a lot of black on black violence and black on white mugging too. Are these non Muslim? I think many different catego...

Actually that is pretty normal. Our next door neighbour is the strong silent type, goes for long solitary walks. Wife in permanent transmit. (-|

PHXPhlyer if the heat is dry even 40 C or the equivalent in the "the land of the free and the home of the brave", but it also helps to have plenty of water for shower.
