Mr D, I have noticed that you have used the euphimism for a certain horizontal activity. As this originated in 'de emerald oil' I shall be leading a campaign for the rest of the world to cease it's usage. Hence forth you will all be 'feckless'!!

You ask why? Just to do it through the european courts to wind you up would be justification enough, (and also to keep this thread going).

Valediction

Well, I’m about to go on holiday, so I’m feeling fairly magnanimous – what do they call it? demob happy? – make the most of it, gentlemen. I was wondering what had happened to Mr Binoculars recently. Up he pops again, and Mr Draper cruelly reminds him of his past rebuff. Not very kind, Mr Draper.

Mr Davaar and Mr Rossco are clearly more resilient types. Mr Davaar, your poetic offerings were highly appreciated (and I wouldn’t worry too much about Mr Spork – I notice he tends to be literal rather than literary-minded; each to his own). But W1? Hardly. West End girls are not the same as Sloanies, who rarely venture beyond the confines of SW3 and SW7. I begin to wonder whether your credentials are as flimsy as mine.

Mr Rossco, you are certainly trying; despite our contretemps over the bechamel affair, I am sure we can continue to spat reasonably amiably. I see that Mr Topcat is also now trying to stick his oar in. Better late than never, I suppose.

And thank you for your handy diving hint, Mr Draper, though anatomical differences may allow me to escape such embarrassment and spare my blushes. If you are reduced to smoke signals because your chip has gone up in flames, you could try sending your plumes in the general direction of SE Asia – I might pick them up while lying on the beach (one puff for yes, two for no).

Now, back to more important matters. Will 10 pairs of shoes be enough for three weeks? I expect I can buy some more over there if not. At least I don’t have to worry about putting the dog into kennels.

Good grief Girl another holiday? I would not bother unpacking were I you.
I always take a large bag of sarnies, one does not trust that food those foreign Johnnies eat.
Had nature intended us to eat spagetti we would not have evolved lips and teeth,we would just had a sort of third nostril about a inch lower down.

Anyway have a nice time singaporegirl, one will keep the thread pointing 2000wards untill your return.

is that a euphimism? I thought it was quaint and colloquial. I also lived a year outside of Dublin so that makes me an inveterate liar.

One ponders if the usage of said argot imbues a certain character abberation. Me? I got on great wit dem Munsterites, so.
In fact, one managed to put a ring on me finger then followed me home. . . . . makes me wonder at the extent of one's gullibility.

As an aside, the ratio is maintaining 14.95 (approx) views per post. At the average rate of 12 posts per 24hr projected peak of 2 000 posts should occur October 6th.
For whoever cares.

The Internet is a scaringly wonderful thing. Decided to see if I could find a mate I hadn't heard from in years (17 years to be exact). All I knew were is academic background and his name and his last place of employment. Within 10 minutes I had a good idea of where he worked and a likely home address and telephone number. Within 30 minutes I had an email reply from him confirming it was him!! This had taken me from Cambridge, England, to Montreal and finally to Texas. Fecking scary it's that easy.

Enjoy your hols Singaporegirl!!

Try not to miss our sparring whilst away, although I suspect you'll find the beach boring after a while and re-locate for an hour to one of those awful internet cafe's to get your PPRuNe RDA.

TC,

I must wholeheartedly agree.

A soupcon of anticipatory delight precedes all visits to JB, for the RDA of SG's barbed and insightful asides which, despite all rebuffs to the contrary, alleviates the boredom of so limited conversation among one's local denizens.

Ozzy,

Better believe it. Geography is no more, welcome to the global campfire.

I'll take a 7-2 wager SG'll be in one of dem cafe thingies within the week. . .

I could have said it's been so long, so long, but why prevaricate?The truth is, Miss Singaporegirl, we are what Glasgow calls chancers, you and I, and it takes one to know one.

Bon voyage!

Is Singapore ready for this?

From singaporegirl:
(and I wouldn’t worry too much about Mr Spork – I notice he tends to be literal rather than literary-minded; each to his own).
Mmmmm… People keep adding Mr to my name... And from Davaar:
I offended spork by my wordiness
No – you didn’t offend me, it was just very boring. How can anyone accuse me of being literal? Really! Have a good holiday singaporegirl. I'm willing to bet you won't touch a computer on your hols.

You ARE boring, spork Old Man, but I do believe I am more really really boring than you. And pointless.

Tsk, tsk. I haven't even left these shores yet and already the bickering has broken out. Mr Draper, I expect you to keep this recalcitrant rabble in check while I am away, See if you can get to 2000 without blowing each other's heads off, will you? One for all and all for one and all that.

Thank you for all your good wishes. I shall think of you all while catching the rays on the beach or pursuing the sharks underwater. I wonder whether Malaysian boys' eyelashes are as long as Italians?

Ciao, bellas!

A androgenous Scotsman named Spender,
decided to alter his gender,
with scissors and dirk,
he got to work,
now he isn't Spender,
he's Brenda.

Slight misunderstanding here. As the thread title is "The really really boring and totaly pointless snippets of information thread", to inform someone that they were boring is actually a compliment. At least that was how it was meant...

Maybe I should have added smilies and winkies.

I'm incapable of bickering - just ask my wife.

She'll think of me more...

A trifle, spork, but thank you. More to the pointless, has anyone received a post-card yet? If that pushy topcat has one I'll be real sick.

Why should candles be refrigerated before having sex?


To prolong the romantic mood: candles burn more slowly and evenly with minimum wax drippings if they are placed in the freezer for an hour before using.
That should light your fire...

Apparently, the average (whatever that means) domestic cat will spend 10,950 hours of its life purring.
