    I really enjoyed Keef's book. Comes over as an engaging rogue with a way with words, interesting turn of phrase and some great stories to tell. I loved hearing it from his perspective.

    I quite enjoyed the Kieth Richards book even though I'm not a big Stones fan. I started to read Ronnie Wood, s and that was awful, it was just a list of, look at the famous people I've mixed with. I gave up halfway through.

    Revving the absolute shit out of your piece of crap ‘bike’ in a residential area should be a death-penalty offence.

    As a motorcyclist (amongst other things) I wholeheartedly agree. I've often thought a baseball bat would be handy at times like that.

    When I had bikes there were 3 things that could get you a tug from the law, black visor, loud pipe or a small plate. They'd usually let you have 1 of the 3, I always went for the visor so I could see where I was going and looked fucking cool.

    We went to a local farm shop yesterday and I asked if they sold local honey, due to Lefkasmans allergy advice. They said they usually do but someone smashed up the beehives. Turns out they are hidden and the beekeeper does it through the love of the hobby and not profit, some dickheads found them and smashed them up, TWICE! The first time the beekeeper managed to save a queen and got one hive going but after the second attack the lot was ruined.
    They caught them after the second time and when asked by the Police why they did it they said “we were bored”.

    Absolute fucking idiots. I hate stuff like that, leave nature alone, go and smash each other up you fucking morons

    I met a bloke in an industrial unit in Liverpool had hives all over the city so people could have the honey closest to their postcode. Probably still got a jar somewhere.

    Oh FFS.

    I cut an escallonia hedge wearing only shorts and flip flops once.
    I had hives all over my body.

    Anyone know a shit builder?

    I need one to complete my set of utter wank "tradesman" dealt with in the last year.

    I've had a roofer who didn't finish the job, another roofer who didn't turn up, an electrician who didn't even bother to quote, a plumber who tucked me up price wise on a relatively easy job. If it wasnt for the little guy who fixed my oven, Id despair.

    Unprecedented times & all that shit, but doesn't anyone care about giving a half decent service these days.

    Ebay support - has a robot chat thing that will eventual put you through to a human.

    The human asks for the transaction ID.

    I post it.

    3 mins later, "oh sorry, can you post again but with spaces in between every number as this chat system masks the ID number"

    Over the years I have pretty much done everything you can think of myself, except plastering I never could get the hang of that.

    It just takes, patience, time and preparation and these days there are hundreds of tutorials on youtube showing how to do things and what kit you need.

    Mobile phones.

    My contract is up. I don't really want a new phone, but my mams is knackered, so it could be a good way to kill two birds with one stone. Do I have a clue what to get? Do I want to stay locked in to a 30 quid a month payment to a shit company like EE? I know it's pretty simple but I just can't be arsed.

    I think mobiles have reached a saturated point, what else can they do?

    My latest phone is no better than the one two contracts ago, infact I think it's worse. And I've told anybody who wants to hear including the PLC's.

    All that continues to sell latest phones nowadays is hyped up marketing about nothing new or of very tiny substance, much like football.

    The mobile phone market jumped the shark when they started offering Derby tickets with phone contracts.

    Best way if you have the cashflow, is buy the phone outright, pay for insurance and then take sim-deal.

    Usually save 30-40% over 24 month contract.

    Month-by-month sim-only deals are a little more expensive, but you get to switch whenever you want if you decide the service is shit.

    Its about 10 years since I had a phone deal, ou've probably saved more than a grand in that time.

    ^^^ This.

    „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“
