  1. The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    The real tragedy is that so far he has not immortalised himself with a Darwin Award.
  2. Fuck in snow

    Woke up to this. Very unusual in the South of the UK
  3. And now what did you do TODAY?

    You're welcome any time for a cold one or two.
  4. The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    What a complete and total shithead. Even his fatuous analysis of how much tax went into paying for the emergency services misses the point that while they were dealing with the microwave fuckwit they were not available to deal with a real emergency. Like a house fire, or major road traffic accident. What an asshole. I apologise profusely for him being British.
  5. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Congratulations Jacob - awesome! That is quite a month - married, and a new job. Mind you, when I saw Oxford, I thought "That'll be a hell of a commute"
  6. Top Gear

    That'll get watched today
  7. And now what did you do TODAY?

    This is actually about a week old news, but last Wednesday night I was up in the UK Dark Peak district doing night navigation practice. The temperature was -5C with a strong wind, so about -15C with wind chill. This was with a trainer called Chris from Beyond the Edge http://www.beyondtheedge.co.uk/ . I drove up in the late morning, and we started the exercise actually in the light, at about 3pm. But by 5pm it was dark, and we continued on until after 9pm. This is all to do with navigation strategy and accuracy with a map and compass between places set by Chris basically in the middle of nowhere. Chris, is ex Army and climbs big stuff - he summitted a 6000m peak in the Himalayas earlier this year http://www.beyondtheedge.co.uk/chris-summits-kyajo-ri/ , he's a mountain rescue leader and trainer, and is an all-round crazy fitness guy. Anyway, this is sunset. Four layers of thermals and a jacket, and lots of layers protecting the crown jewels.
  8. Happy Birthday skullguise!

    Have a great one, Todd!

    That is great news, Steve
  11. What are you listening to Part the Third

    The link I gave to the Zeppelin gig at Southampton has a brilliant reference in it. Plant at one point says he went to the toilet, and saw the name "Alan Whitehead" written on the inside of the cubicle, and the next number was dedicated to him. Now I knew Alan well - Carole and I used to go to dinner at his and Ruth's student flat and vice versa (Ruth married him - but now decades divorced). He ended up as Student Union President - and then went into politics big time. This is him now, Member of Parliament for Test and Itchen (a Southampton constituency) https://www.parliament.uk/biographies/commons/dr-alan-whitehead/62 . He is probably blissfully unaware that Zeppelin immortalized his student graffiti!
  12. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Found on the web thing. This is Zeppelin live at Southampton University Old Refectory, a micro-venue with 300 jam packed students. About 18 months before I started there. They take few numbers to warm up and get going, but after about 20 minutes they are truly superb.
  13. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Ditto to all of that. Good luck with Suzy, Steve - fingers crossed here in the UK.
  14. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Fragment of an unpublished Shakespeare sonnet?
  15. Happy Birthday Bryan!

    Happy birthday!
