    “New” Muhammad Ali interview...

    I was speaking with a friend today who’s father was a sports journalist back in the 70’s. He was lucky enough to get an interview with Muhammad Ali, and it was recorded, on audio tape only. She found the tape recording, got it transferred to digital format and uploaded it to YouTube...

    Annoying Twats on Trains

    I get the train into London every day, I’ve done the journey literally thousands of times but in the last few years I have become increasingly intolerant of other people, to the point that I want to toe punt the in the face. Right now there’s this woman near me who will not stop faffing around...

    Is this the end for me?

    Ok, so last week my missus and me got a Chinese takeaway, and they gave us a coupe of fortune cookies. My missus broke into her one and read the fortune thingy. I broke into mine, and guess what? NO FORTUNE! Just an empty biscuit devoid of any life nourishing wisdom. This left me somewhat...

    Anybody else been hit with one of these on their mobile phone bills? I decided to take a new contract out with Vodafone a couple of months back, and spent about 20 minutes on the phone haggling to get the price I wanted.

    What Would You Do?

    Ok, so at 8 o'clock this evening I was sat in the kitchen faffing with my iPad when I heard a bang from out the front of the house. It was an expensive sounding noise, so I looked out of the window and saw a small dark car on the road pulling away from right by the works van from next door...

    Red Sky

    Is anybody else anybody in the uk experiencing the strange red sky? Apparently it's to do with the incoming storm, but it's really quite weird. It's not just the sky that's red, everything is bathed in a nice warm red glow. It must be aliens...

    Advice Needed!

    I don't often start threads, but I do need some advice, and I know the good posters on here won't let me down. My missus went shopping yesterday, and one of the items needed was some breakfast cereal, for myself. A couple of boxes of granola are the norm, but it was decided to get something...

    Death on the Tracks

    I'm on a train home from work right now and we've just hit a person who jumped in front of the train. So, we could be stuck here for ages, although it happens so often they have got pretty good at scooping up all the mess quite quickly. Apparently the clean up crew are on their way and we'll be...

It was promised for next day delivery, (Amazon Prime) and required a signature. This was fine, as I was off the next day. Did it turn up? Did...

    Delayed Flight Compensation

    Back in 2013 I went on holiday, with my missus to Crete on with Thomas Cook. Unfortunately, our flight from Gatwick was delayed by about 4 hours. On the way back, our flight was delayed yet again, by about the same amount of time. At the time, I didn't know anything about claiming compensation...

    Surveys

    I just had a knock at the door, some guy flashed some ID, and said he was doing some survey about tv programme viewing figures. I told him I wasn't interested and he said "Oh, no no no, it's ok, I'm not trying to sell you anything, it's just a survey". I'm still telling him no, and he goes...
