    "The liquid bomb plot."

    I would say over half my tv viewing in the course of a week (which is not much in fairness) must be on the documentry channel. Last night I watched a brilliant doc on the Islamic Terrorists that planned to blow up 9 planes between Britain and American in 2006. The basics were that the UK...
  3. Home Brewing

    Right I feel there may be a few experts on this topic on the Zone so thought I would try and get some opinions... I want to start doing a bit of home brewing, but I honestly have no idea where to start. I would ideally like to brew some pale ales to start off with but see how things go. As a...

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    The 39th Shame

    I've found an interesting anomaly on the official Premier League website. Now, admittedly I'm playing fast and loose with the definition of the word 'interesting', but stick with me on this. When you click 'contact us', instead of bringing up the address of the organisation, it gives you a...

    Harry's Nostalgia - York (Dec 92)

    Please forgive this old git a bit of self indulgence, but as this is my 10,000th post, and before I get back to working for a living, I decided I would do another away day article. For the purpose of this article I have chosen an away trip to York in December 1972. As ever my memory played...
  9. Miss Essex FM

    Hi all Don't know if anyone's interested but it was the final of Miss Essex FM last night at Basildon's Liquid & Envy nightclub. I was invited down so thought I'd share this report with you - not football related, but may make your Friday more bearable. Longpier report

    Memory Lane Favourite Southend landmark - past or present.

    Apart from Southend Pier my favourite has to be the 'Liquid Ray' graffiti that was daubed on several walls in the town. "Liquid Ray just loves to spray" "Liquid Ray has gone away" "Liquid Ray is a grass" (possibly not eponymous) I also loved the "SPEED NOW" graffiti outside my alma mata...

    Question Is is acceptable to bring a Dog into a banking hall.

    I am currently studying for my IFA exams. This basically means being stuck in a office of a high street bank for seven hours at a time. Having not worked in retail banking for about 8 years I am amazed by how standards of customers have slipped. Being in a sleepy sussex town I imagined it...

    Where we all drinking in Donny then?

    After much soul searching I am heading up the A1 middayish on Friday with ticket in pocket and beer on my mind. Once booked into the hotel I will be in need of a liquid high tea and would prefer to be doing this with fellow Shrimpers, Blues and drunks (B.A.G. I am looking at you) My question...

    Flavoured condoms

    One question: why? What is the point? The only conclusionI can draw is that it would give you, or your partner (hopefully your partner:eek: ) something to chew on once it has been used. I guess the nearest thing to this would be a Locket. You suck on the Locket until it is time to bite when the...

  20. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
