    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

    If you were born in the 50's, 60's or 70's

    Doesn't this just some up what it was like growing up and exactly what the kids of today are missing out on? First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads...
  4. Atletico Madrid Fans!!!

    Well if the team are prepared anything like the fans then this will be a good game v chelsea tonight!! A boozer close to where I work is being frequented with currently between 150-200 fans as of 1.30pm. The smallest most unpopular pub. How it has come about and how they have got the message...

    Brighton brawl

    Apologies if this is somewhere else or a similar thread has already been deleted, but the local rag down here in Brighton has 'rival football fans clash in street brawl' at the top of the front page tonight. The story itself on page 5 states; Football fans from opposing clubs hurled bottles at...

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    Current "right wing" protests against the spread of Islam

    I see the Government are totally out of which with what the majority of the country think yet again... BBC News I was just watching an extended piece on the latest London protest on Sky News and although the undertone of the story was "oh look, it's the same knuckle dragging skinhead element...

    Addlestones cider

    I was wondering if you have come across bottles of Addlestones cider on your travels through the off licenses and supermarkets of Essex? I have inquired via Addlestones direct and all the wholesalers etc are northern. I have found it on Beers of Europe for £23 a case but wondered if cheaper...
  11. suncream...

    does it go off? most the shops are doing BOGOF or half price suncream at the moment, so was wondering if it's worth picking up a few bottles for the honeymoon in march... instead of having to get it when it's out of season and full price? does it go off or anything?

    Garry Cook's Gamble

    I don't want to appear rude or patronising, but something has been bothering me for a while now and I need to get it off my chest. Does Manchester City's chief executive Garry Cook actually understand how football works? I only ask because the evidence is really starting to pile up now. He...

    Smelly beaver OCD

    At a wedding last night and chatting with the lads and one in perticular is a ugly ****er but as a youngster he used to nick decent birds , albeit he used to get them when they were young , i'e we were 19 and he'd always go for the 17 year old innocent girls and get his wicked way after a few...

    Worst date ever?

    Come on then ladies and gentlemen. We have all had some pretty terrible dates - so give us your horror stories. Mine dates back to 2006 time. I was doing a mortgage for a SZ poster who I wont name for fear of dating the data protection act or something similar. We met up at London Bridge where...
  15. Real Ale Day

    How was it for you? In the West Stand I was disappointed to find there was no real ale at 2:30 (and I don't count John Smiths or Newcastle Brown as real ale). When I questioned the bar staff they said that for them real ale day had consisted of 6 bottles each of 2 different beers. A bit of a...

    Home Brew

    Being long term unemployed I have a lot of time on my hands and am trying to use it wisely by making homebrew for self consumption . The wine has got off to a cracking start with only problem being getting my supply and demand right (currently making two gallon a week = 12 bottles). The next...

    Officials and Stewards.

    The result last night didn’t bother me too much because we created enough chances and on another night we could of won 4-1. If there are any zoners who referee at some level, I would like to hear your views on this. But what is really beginning to get to me is the standard of officiating in...
  18. Revenge of the Binmen

    I don't know if anybody saw this last night, but it was quite possibly the most unintentionally hillarious documentary i've ever seen in my life. It started out with a woman who refused to put bottles out to be recycled, in case anybody used them as an offensive weapon to maim anybody. It then...
  19. Help Please!

    Right, this is going to sound a bit weird but nevermind. Tomorrow night for my uni volleyball team we each have to make up a superhero and dress up like them, the only problem is that I can't think of a superhero to be so this is where you lot come in to save me by suggesting things I could...

    Breast Feeding is it about to go to new levels??

    Just for MrB and number11 We usually find what the stars of Hollywood do, the women of the western world tend to follow. Clicky here!! So what is your opinion on this, a) It is ok for the mother to go public b) We should embrace the old traditional methods used upto the early 1930s c)...
