    Is it like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife?

    It’s like meeting the Man of your dreams, then meeting his beautiful wife.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Or dry scone left over when all the jam has gone...
    Me - I love ironing.
    I set the ironing board up, put on a CD or an LP, whop the amp up to 11 and lose myself in the smell of freshly laundered clothes losing their wrinkles and creases.
    If I'm in the mood I might even iron some items of dirty laundry!

    Being a scruffy bastard I don't need to iron clothes. Wash em, shake em, hang em in the sun (when it decides to arrive). Good enough for me.

    I’ve just ranted none stop for about 60 minutes about work.

    Once I’d started, I just couldn’t stop. It was like a rolling stone. One thing led to another and my language deteriorated so that every other word was ‘fuck’, ‘fucking’ or ‘fucked’.

    I seem to have got it all off my chest but I feel exhausted now.

    'Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings' - Salvador Dali 1904-1989

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    Get it all out, you'll feel better for it in the long run

    I definitely got it all out.

    Well, there might be a bit left but I’m saving that for tomorrow.

    Sounds like a cricket bat may have saved a few words.

    Sounds like it built to a good climax.

    Did an impromptu trip to Devon & back yesterday afternoon for work. 9 hours straight, radio had packed up two hours in & only had myself for company. I was fucking cross eyed by the end of it.

    Mostly motorway, fucking hell does anyone concentrate on the road on the motorway. Every lorry driver I passed was either on the phone, reading something, one looked like he was watching tele!

    Surprised there aint more accidents to be fair. Couldnt do that shit for a living.

    It's actually quite scary, I remember seeing the video of that lorry driver who squashed about 8 cars and killed four people in a traffic queue because he was busy looking at his phone.

    They never stood a chance.

    I was reading in the paper the other day, the highway agency have bought these high-cab vehicles so they can see what lorry drivers are doing while they are driving.

    The example the article used (with picture) was a bloke buying something online, no hands on the wheel, card in one hand phone in the other, all while pelting down the motorway in a bloody big lorry.

    What needs to be bought that urgently that it can’t wait for your next stop?

    I saw a video that was going round whatsapp a while back where a bloke was not only watching porn while he was driving, but having a tommy tank while he was at it. I just assumed it was Barry.

    My mate's van broke down and he had to pull over on to the hard shoulder just before a junction.

    They call the AA who say they're on the way and don't forget to go and wait behind the barrier.

    My mate and one of the lads decided to sit it out, but the third lad insists they get out.

    After a short argument they agree and they all get out and climb the barrier. before they've found somewhere safe to sit, BANG! a huge truck (tractor unit) with a trailer ploughs through their van.

    They were lucky they had got out, they wouldn't have survived.

    They did, and the reason the Truck hit them - the driver was looking through his bag of Revels for a particular sweet.

    Saw that on the box once, some obnoxious scottish copper who happened to know all the VOSA regs driving around in an unmarked truck.

    He pulled one bloke over who had a cab full of Tennants Super on the go, he blew about 120 into the machine, yet he spoke as clear as day. Frightening.
