  1. Wow, the roast of Rob Lowe was brutal. Funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

  2. Is it just me, or does Rio seem like a total dump? Athletes being robbed at knife point and bullet holes in media tents, who decided giving them the Olympics was a good idea?

      I'm surprised Rio was chosen for the road cycling. It always struck me as a pretty precarious location with steep, winding inclines around every corner. Also poverty and inequality do not make good partners for masses of naive tourists loaded with cash.

      Cant complain about the cycling, both races were pretty spectacular.

  3. Windows 10 seems to work pretty well.

      I don't understand why some people are so against it!

      I resisted for a long time, but decided to get it since the free period is coming to and end. You're right, just playing with it tonight, it's much faster.

      Tis ok, but only use it on my works note book. Still don't come across it's usage in business very much though.

      Leave the politics off this or take a holiday.

  5. What is it with some companies; they don't answer emails or messages. It's like they don't want to sell their goods.

    1. SleeperService


      I sympathise completely having all but given up on getting some stuff. I'd also like to know.

  6. Strange that I found rigging quite fun.

    1. MikeW


      That is one of the last things I remember saying too before the men in white coats knocked at my door.

      Pervert LOL

  7. Washing the cars that just drive around on roads and live undercover, makes me wonder if there's no such thing as too much weathering for any combat vehicle on the Eastern Front!

    1. TheBaron


      My Skoda estate is in permanent 'post-Kursk' condition due to rural roads...

  8. So much gunk in the body of my airbrush, it had glued the air valve shut.

      Cleanliness is adjacent to goodliness.

  9. A couple of ciders really takes the edge of masking.

      So long as it hasn't changed the edges of masking!

    2. Stosh65


      Or led to the masking of edges.

    3. Jinxman


      ..or the edging of masks...

  10. Greatest Wrong Calls of the 20th Century #85; You need to learn maths because you're not going to have a graphics calculator on you where ever you go.

  11. Playing finals for the third year in a row. Defending 188 tomorrow in the semi, will need early wickets I think.

  12. Wishing all the atheists a merry mythmas and a logical new year.

      You mean Rational New Year.

    3. Brad


      Ah, rational, logical, I'm cool with either.

    4. SleeperService


      I hope it does get brighter, couldn't find a virgin to sacrifice this Solstice :-(

  13. A young orphan farm boy is radicalised after an unprovoked military strike that kills his whole family. After indoctrination into an ancient religion he carries out a terrorist attack, killing thousands...I love Star Wars.

      That is very clever! I likes it a lot.

      is this what you are talking about:

  14. Andy Murray says he'll quit the Australian Open for the birth of his child. No need for that Andy, it's due the second week.

  15. West Indies vs Australia test match is a total snooze fest. Windies don't look like taking another wicket and even the commentators sound bored!

    1. FalkeEins


      ..they'll probably hammer you in the one-dayers...hope!

  16. Damnit, my the valve in my Aztek airbush died tonight....oh well it was 16 years old, new airbrush in my future.

    1. jenko


      Give it a good soak in acetone and wash with water. HTH

      Are they still under lifetime guarantee? I just sent mine to Testors and got a new one back.

    3. Brad


      Ah, nah I voided my warrenty years ago as I open the body to clean it. Good news though, I found I'd just blown the air line from the valve to the nozzle so a little jerry rigging some new pipe and I'm good to go! Phew!

  17. What's the best think about a plastic bag costing 5p? That cupboard next to your mums sink is now worth about 800 quid!

  19. Went for a walk this afternoon and saw a huge tiger snake sitting on a rock.

  20. I need to stop building cheap and nasty kits. I've bought 4 brand new Kinetic Mirages and what model do I pull out and glue together? The Academy Mirage IIIC...something wrong with me!

  21. How many times can South Africa choke in the world cup?!?

  22. Cracked open a 45 year old bottle of Johnny Walker Black...oh yeh, that's the stuff!

      I've never knoen a bottle to last longer than a couple of weeks.

    2. Brad


      It's only lasted this long because dad doesn't drink it and forbid me from opening it until now.

  23. My wife is a psychopathic homeopath. She's been trying to posion me for at least 20 years.

    1. wallyinoz

    2. MikeW


      You lucky dog - I have to make my own poison

  24. What do you do to an elephant with three balls? You walk him and pitch to the rhino.

  25. So rap music promotes gun violence? Well I've been listening to the 1812 Overture all week and I'm yet to commit a drive-by cannoning.

      I feel like dropping some bouncing bombs on something after watching The Dambusters yesterday

    3. Darby
