What the fuck was that?

by NobblySan

I don’t normally like just posting videos of random stuff, but this one made me smile.

It’s the evil side of being a mechanical engineer, I suppose . . .

There’s never a U-boat around when you need one, is there?

by NobblySan

For fuck’s sake lads, just give it up will you.

You’re a bleedin’ menace to yourselves and others.

Wossit all about ?

by ratty

A couple of nights ago me and a mate got as pissed as parrots and were talking the usual kind of shite

Some little time previous, an acquaintance and I were sitting at table and engaging in social intercourse. There was an abundance of alcoholic beverages available, of which we partook freely, consequently the subjects of our conversation, being many (as we continually abandoned one topic to pursue another) were, more or less, of a light and jolly nature.

(Yes, that sounds a much better intro . . . )

Bloody Typical

by NobblySan

One Sunday in every month, MrsN, the dogs and myself meet up with a bunch of friends and go for a hike across some local moors. You know the sort of thing:

  • slosh through mud
  • climb a hill
  • sit gasping and wheezing at the top
  • whinge about how bloody windy it is
  • shelter behind a dry stone wall eating sandwiches and drinking coffee
  • ask how far it is to the nearest pub

Wha’s your choice for the new English National Anthem ?

by ratty

I’ve just discovered (can you believe that no bugger bothered to tell me) that MP’s are going to debate whether that bloody awful dirge “God Save the Queen” should be dropped as the English National Anthem and replaced with something else.

Personally, I’d choose “Rule Britannia” but I suppose “Britannia” is a bit too inclusive for an English Anthem.

Some plonkers are even suggesting “Jerusalem.” And that’s another country ! So maybe I’ll stick with “Rule Britannia” after all.

Mind you, the theme tune from “Dr. Who” would be quite nice to sing along to . . .

What would you like as the new English anthem ?

A win for freedom of religious expression!

by NobblySan

Fantastic news.

Finally, after suffering years of abuse, disrespect and outright hostility from other religions, one fringe religion has been recognised by one of the most intolerant regimes in the world.

This man has won the right to wear a symbol of his religious belief in his his driving licence photo.

Good on him, I say!

The making of ‘A war’

by NobblySan

“Reality is far more complex. Is it wrong to let your buddy die on the ground when you could save him? Yes. Is it wrong to let a group of defenceless civilians die instead? Yes. Faced with that choice, who can say what is the right thing to do?

“We want everything to be simple – and now we want to get to the heart of a situation in less than 140 characters on Twitter, in a Facebook update, in a politician’s soundbite on the evening news.

“We want punishment for mistakes, and this obsession with simplicity is hiding the true complexity of human life. So there are no heroes in my film – just humans.”

Tobias Lindholm

What’s it all about?

I heard this chap interviewed on the radio yesterday, and then saw this article on the BBC website.

Normally, arty types come across as pretentious and full of their own (or their art’s) importance, but Lindholm’s words struck a real chord with me.

Serious though this is . . .

. . . I had to smile at a radio news report about it.

The report mentioned that officials in Cologne had referred to the attacks and thefts as having been carried out by . . .
