    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...
  3. OD - Match 5

    BATTY SHRIMPERS v Bogeymen I'm 6th, he's 2nd. Agreed a mutual TIE with him as he's still in the Cup. Full-strenth side, although new singing Frazer is only at Moderate, but he's probably still a better bet than a Double Superb. Otherwise we're not too shabby PFL wise Tough day for batting, and...

    Question Best Indian restaurant in the SS area?

    Not sure if this has been done before but I am sure everyone has an opinion. I use the Mumtaz Mahal in Benfleet because it is a one minute walk from my house however the best I have sampled locally is probably the Gulshan near the Mecca Bingo. The one on Leigh Broadway (the name escapes me but...

    Sky Upgrade Help

    I currently have a very old Sky box. I have been toying with the idea of upgrading to either Sky + or Sky HD. The problem I have is that I have a non standard installation. I have a distribution box in the loft that sends the signal to pretty much every room in the house. The cabling from the...

    Here below are the official rules of stealing other people's lighters. Although stealing lighters is despicable and morally wrong, it is always going to happen whether it be an accident or you're going all out to steal it.So I have written the OFFICIAL rules of stealing lighters so we all have a...

    Tired of constantly being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife, with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed. A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a nefarious...

    Summer Madness

    Was football just waiting for me to go on holiday before it got interesting? I left for the sun-bleached Spanish countryside on the morning after the Confederations Cup Final and, no sooner had my budget airliner wobbled onto Alicante's dusty runway than the transfer market exploded. Every trip...

    Personally I feel that Scannel could be the hidden star in our squad, the lad has some skill but if he can lose a stone and get a string of games together I really feel he could be something special. What do you guys think?

    SZ Novella - Chapter One

    Inspired by the truly awesome work of the Shrimperzone Writer's Bureau, I've been clattering away on a full version of this dystopian nightmare, attempting to give it the depth that it deserves. MK Shrimper planted a bug in my head and I really hope that I can do it justice, not least because...

    Any truth in this WW2 story?

    Judging by how far behind eveyone else I seem to be in getting jokes and stuff sent to me, I don't know if any of you have seen this story. It seems very far fetched to me, just wondered if anyone knows if there's any truth in it or is this a hangover from last April Fools' Day or something? ;)...
  15. Question Testicles

    After just taking a clean flick to my testes and spending the last 10mins doubled over feeling sick, it made me wonder.....why do they hang in such a thin skin sack, outside the frame of the body when they are so sensitive! why are they not incased in bone or up inside us with the rest of us...
  16. MK's Christmas Film pick

    For Saturday the 20th is Hidden, directed by Michael Haneke on C4 11.35pm tonight. I'd suggest you Sky+ it 'cos you may need to see the final (very long) scene several times before you go "oh yeah....now I get it!"
  17. Acer Recovery Discs

    Firstly, for the mods, I am not asking for anything illegal - I have the licence for the disks I need and all the software on them. I have an Acer Aspire laptop, 7520 series, and the hard drive has crashed. It is supposed to be possible to recover from this using the "hidden" recovery...

    Memory Lane A different perspective on Roots Hall

    A few weeks ago as we set out the placards on the West Stand seats prior to the Colchester game, I had the opportunity to take some interesting shots of any empty Roots Hall. When you look at it in black and white, some of the real character of the place starts to come through. There's a...

    Platini vs Wenger

    Just read on sky sports Platini's attack on Wenger, which is strange. Is this a hidden attack on English footy because Wenger has a team that plays delightful football while France are crap. Perhaps a Slipperduke column about the subject would be in order.

    Walsall AGED me.

    On Saturday at Walsall and again on this board, Southend fans seem to be having a go at each other and it aint nice. I feel that the hurt from Doncaster was hidden by the wonderful atmosphere, and only know after some bad results is it starting to come out. So on a light hearted note ...
