The fact that Chris Hughton manages Brighton.

I like Chris Hughton and f'king hate Brighton.

It creates a disturbance in the force, an uneasy feeling of cognitive dissonance; it's annoying.

Joe85 21-05-2017 02:02 AM

The fact that District 10 has been made yet.

Travesty.

Get over to the Holmesdale site, big Vegan argument thread going on over there. :)

People that say "I would vote for 'insert political party here', however they will never get in so i'm going to vote for Labour/Conservative".

Way to maintain the status quo.

richdeniro 22-05-2017 03:02 PM

Pulling up to a mini roundabout and the person on the exit to your right just sitting there despite no traffic coming from their right. You wait 10-15 seconds and they still haven't moved so go for it and then they decide to move almost slamming into the side of you.

I'm sure these people don't know the highway code regarding roundabout right of ways and panic when they come to one.

They don't seem to realise that it's still a ******* roundabout. Worse are those who just drive straight on or through the roundabout like on Auckland Road where mini roundabouts have effectively replaced the T junction.

Also twats who don't indicate when leaving the roundabout.

Unlike BMWs and Audis, which have the right of way regardless.

Over here the law used to be that, if you were on the roundabout, you gave way to cars entering it......many people still believe that law is still in force. And then you get the arses who play "chicken" and speed up to the roundabout in the hope you panic and slam the brakes on, thereby allowing them to speed on.

I'm very good at not being the chicken.

LN1 22-05-2017 03:36 PM

Up here most people can barely manage normal roundabouts but mini roundabouts are just things to drive through.

The Hatton Cross roundabout would blow minds here.

Going back to the T junction, twats wanting to turn right who stop in the middle of the lane, preventing people from turning left. I'd add one point to their licence each time they did it. Causing an obstruction to other traffic.

What about the 'tards, who, when faced with the options of driving straight on or turn right at mini roundabouts, signal left and drive straight on?!

If you approach a mini-roundabout at the same time as someone coming in the opposite direction, who has right of way?

Nah. I remember what it was like many years ago (I once bought a tie from Annie Lennox at a store she was running) and it was nothing like it is now. The rot started in the 80s in my humble opinion.

By having a dedicated multistorey truck access ramp. It's one Heathrow's freight depots but only a couple of floors high though. Still not sure how it would get on with those mini-roundabouts though!

Wow, live and learn. That one with the red cab has a job turning round up there though :eek:

Personally i think the magic roundabout in swindon looks more daunting. The heathrow one is basically a load of short dual carriageways :)

People who don't indicate when they're in a right turn / straight on lane at junctions, so you pull up behind them assuming they're going straight on, and then they begin to turn right...

Off topic I realise but this morning I was driving along a quiet country lane in Cornwall when I noticed an odd looking roadkill. On stopping and taking a closer look it turned out to be a very flat polecat (a wild polecat, not an escaped ferret with polecat markings). Turning back to my car I noticed something brown on the edge of a verge only to discover a dead stoat. Two relatively rare - very dead - mustelids within a few feet of each other!

Back on topic, road kill of our indigenous wildlife.

First time I've seen one close up

When I rented some land in Horam, Sussex a few years back, I was standing in some dense cover left over from the 'great storm' awaiting the start of a drive. Overcome with a desire to have a piss, I put my gun down and answered the call of nature. As I shook the last droplets off, a stoat appear from the cover and, clearing not realising I was there, came across the tiny clearing and paused, whilst unknowingly standing on my wellies, chattered angrily at something and then leapt off into the cover to my left at an amazing speed.

I could hear her chattering for a good five minutes after.

Unforgettable moment.

[Better even than an adder slithering over my boots mid stream on another day at Horam. (Don't let anyone tell you, you can't stop once you get started, I can assure you that you can)]

Obviously can't answer for Stella but I have eaten roadkill pheasant. Saw one topped by a car (hit rather than flattened) and stopped and picked it up. A couple of days hung in the cellar and it was just right :p

Which reminds me, isn't there some law against taking a pheasant that you have accidentally hit and killed?

Which reminds me, isn't there some law against taking a pheasant that you have accidentally hit and killed?

It's certainly illegal to hit and kill an animal. An offence is committed if you "uses any mechanically propelled vehicle in immediate pursuit of any such wild animal for the purpose of driving, killing or taking that animal."

However, whoever picks it up is theoretically committing theft as, a wild animal lying dead on the highway is technically owned by the road owner.

In the very recent past, when we were still required to possess a game licence, it would have been technically illegal for a council employee to remove the dead bird if not in possession of a game licence. Thankfully this archaic licence has now been dropped. (As an aside, when I worked in Sutton, every year the game licence I bought was numbered one higher than the previous years licence. I guess I must have been the only game shooter in Sutton. :D)

So, in answer, just pick it up and take it home. Most police haven't got a clue about what the law actually says and the district council will be glad that someone's saved them a job clearing it up. If some twat in tweed appears claiming it's his bird, tell him it would be armed trespass if he should venture onto the road to demand it back, then, if the mood suits you, tell him to **** off and drive away with your prize dangling out your window - which he would have paid a fortune to shoot and was, technically legally his bird, if only it hadn't landed outside his borders. ;)

Hoarding stuff you will never ever use because it might 'come in handy'. It won't. Just spent all day emptying my garage, fitting a metre wide bay, then putting 95% of it back in, filling it up again. Now walking like Puncheon after a curry. Grr.

How I overreact when we lose a manager I like and I see rumours why they left. Sorry for the head loss and moaning about SP

the Manc bombing and BT's insistence tonight on making a football match seem like it'll be in the mind of most of that city (like the victims family will get comfort from a load of millionaires this soon - **** off) has got me thinking about these things. Just a game in these times.

Spill the beans! Or should I say, let us in on the secret ;)

The US Govt leaking intelligence on Manchester passed to them confidentially in good faith by the UK. The NYT and CNN announced the bombers name having got it from a source in Washington which led to a complaint from Amber Rudd. Now photos of bits of the bomb are in the NYT. Nothing like letting the enemy know how much you know and how much you don't know ! Whose side are these people on ?

24hr news and ratings innit? With Washington pandering to them.

StonePenge 25-05-2017 03:12 AM

No excuse.Why would ratings go up because one paper or network has the name of the bomber. (Well,maybe in Libya). Needless to say, "Angry of Stamford" has written a letter to the NYT.....

Anyone who starts a FB post with 'Thought For The Day'

They are never as deep, thought provoking or fascinating as the writer thinks they are.

Utterly disrespectful c-units who can't even observe a minute's silence.

Currently the automated message at Charing Cross which says something like: "Now that the threat level is critical... See it, say it, sort it."

The first part is like an Orwellian 1984 rip off, the last part is something I'd expect to hear in a Guy Ritchie fillum.

Settling down to read the last 60 pages of a book and then finding that the last 55 pages are historical notes and the first chapter of the next book.

Extra armed security at Buckingham Palace and Downing St to "reassure the public".... yeah, because those extremists are picking those kind of targets. In any case, I'd much rather those ***** were blown up than children at a pop concert.

Yup

Or even worse, Helen and Mike are celebrating 7 years of friendship on FB, take a look at their video.

Nah, you're alright.

Oddjob 25-05-2017 03:37 PM

People who do that thing of holding their mobile in front of their face
