    Do you admire his brashness or is this just plain old fashioned stealing?

    A US company has revealed that one of its employees had outsourced his job to someone in China so he could surf the internet and watch cat videos on youtube. Apparently he earned several hundred thousand dollars a year and paid around $50,000 to someone in China to do the 9-5. A clever...
  3. Southend's mooted move to Milton Keynes

    Morning good people of SZ, A trip down memory lane to the dark days of the early to mid-1980s, if you will. I'm trying to do some digging for an article for next month's All At Sea. In light of the stealing of Wimbledon's league place in 2003, I gather Southend's chairmen in the early 80s threw...

    ...still haven't been paid, how does that make you feel? Would you want to do something about it? What can we as fans do? The last we heard, we'd been told that they would be properly paid. Yet, we know that Tilly alleged a few weeks ago that he hadn't been paid since April. These...

    World Cup Memories

    Strange as it may seem, I've been reminiscing once again. I was thinking about the England World Cup squad of 1970 and their number one hit, 'Back Home.' There they were on TOTP, all suited in black and wearing white shirts and black ties. We didn't have a colour telly then, so that's how it...

    Digital SLRs (possibly second hand)

    Wondered if anyone had any advice? I enjoy stealing my dad's Canon D60 Digital SLR, but doesn't happen as often as I'd like. I really enjoy taking nature pics on walks around the countryside (I must be getting old!) and could do with my own piece of kit. However this will be my first D SLR and...

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...
  10. The Hand of Frog.

    Steve McClaren

    I think it's time that I made my peace with Steve McClaren. On Sunday night, sat in The Balcony off Orchard Road, I was asked what I thought of him and it was a full ten minutes of swearing, gesticulating and a little bit of frothing at the mouth before I realised that everyone around me was...

    Eat before you buy

    Following on from the "Disgusting" thread, and hearing a bit of a debate on Essex FM yesterday morning, I wonder what are your feelings on the subject of eating food from your trolley in a supermarket before you've paid for it? So many listeners phoned in and said they regularly give their...
