#3061317 So I found this wallet

Posted by Phil on 26 January 2015 - 03:22 PM

When I was 18 I found a wallet, it had over 3 grand in it.

I handed it in to the local nick who contacted the owner. I was unemployed at the time, he gave me a job and although he has now sadly passed away I'm still friends with his family.

#3060505 50 years since the death of Churchill

This story is anecdotal but sums up the feeling at the end of the war.

Churchill was inspecting one of the Yorkshire regiments when a soldier in the ranks said "Nah then Winston, shall we have jobs to go back to?"

Churchill says "Yes of course, your efforts will never be forgotten"

Soldier shaking his rifle "Aye there'd better be, we know how to use these now"

Smokers and gum chewers are anarchists.

Do we not have a bank of potential free labour idling their time on Playstations in jails ?

I'm an anarchist and I do neither, why free labour? Pay the rate for the job, whatever it is.

I read somewhere that many prisoners switch to Islam because it gets them out of many duties and dirty jobs.

I read somewhere that a hobbit found a magic ring

Someone who is religiously inclined asks 'Who made the universe?'

Someone who is inclined towards atheism asks 'Who made God?'

The rest of us accept that the questions are too difficult to answer.

It is worth bearing in mind that a significant number of leading scientists do believe in a god of some sort.

And shedloads don't

And all they need now are thirteen Aussies with Scandanavian grandparents and they can compete in the next World Cup,

What time are you playing? I am off to a do in Copley on Saturday night but if it's rubbish (and others agree and aren't going to the Acca!!!) I might pop in.

Kicking off at 9 if you come along do make yourself known

#3055381 Conversation with a union player....

Posted by Phil on 13 January 2015 - 08:40 PM

...recently, a prop, who admitted to me there are games in which he never touches the ball.

I couldn't help retorting that I'm sure there are union props up and down the country who aren't even aware that a ball is involved.

A pub game elevated to the status of "sport"

Maybe they should show world cribbage or nine men's morris?

Cider with Roadies by Maconie is a good read. Napalm Death come out of it particularly badly 😄

Whatever it is I've got it. Can honestly say I've only ever felt this bad once before.

Just got out of bed to make a pot of tea and what a major undertaking that's been.


#3051254 Still got rugby in it.

Posted by Phil on 02 January 2015 - 08:29 PM

With league lacking so many features of RU and reducing itself to a game with limited scope you choose to ignore the fact that there is more variety in RU compared to league and try and draw comparisons and claim superiority using a very flawed argument.

If all people wanted to see was players running with the ball them games of league would be sold out every week. Guess people want more variety.

Why are you even on here?

Corker of an album.

The last surviving Spider, Woody Woodmansey, was playing at the Welly in Hull last week. Would liked to have gone but I couldn't make it unfortunately.

My 17 year old daughter heard Moonage Daydream on a film soundtrack t'other week and now realises her old man's taste in music isn't completely naff
