Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I almost married a girl from Batley.

 

It was a close shave.

What razor did she use?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Saw something yesterday that left me dumbstruck.  I was taking my young nephew to the Billy Smart's Circus which for this week only is at Haydock Racecourse.  We were travelling along the A580 (East Lancs Road) which is a dual carriageway with a speed limit of 60mph that people regularly break.  There are no hard shoulders but instead there are kerbs running alongside, and it is frequented by tankers, articulated lorries and other heavy vehicles along with cars.  There are also roads that feed quite quickly on/off it.  All in all it is a very dangerous road.

 

I was travelling at around 50mph, as I have a very old car, behind a line of traffic going at around the same speed.  Suddenly a tanker in the overtaking lane came to a very speedy stop and my lane all came to a stop.  Some total idiot had allowed his dog to run on to the dual carriageway.  He had been walking it on the grass verge without a lead.  Mercifully there were no vehicles speeding up to us in our stationary state otherwise there could have been a massive pile up.

 

Thankfully too the dog was unharmed and I could prove that to my very anxious 8 year old nephew as the doofus who was allegedly responsible for the animal was carrying it very much alive in his arms as we scowled at him on our crawl past him.  He had retrieved it himself by walking out on to the dual carriageway.

Having picked up a new car some years ago, I set off early evening for an appointment with a client. Whilst stopped at traffic lights a driver behind had to brake suddenly and ended up adjacent to my car but on the pavement. It was hilarious looking at his sheepish looks but nevertheless a lucky escape from damage to my new car and possible injury.

In today's Mail there is a story of a car catching fire in the lion enclosure at Longleat Safari park.
A mother with a carload of kids. They decided to bale out of the car when flames appeared only to be told to get back in by the park rangers. The lions became curious and started to approach the car, fortunately the Rangers got to them in time and they piled into the rangers vehicle. It took 15 minutes for the fire brigade to dowse the fire, evidently the fire brigade were in some danger too.

Just looked at pictures of the car ablaze and scary in itself, never mind the lions. A women and her two children were rescued and thankful for the bravery of the rangers. The article on the BBC website did say that the family were told to get back in the car, although it seems it wasn't on fire then.
