Has anyone ever...swam with sharks?

Yes but only reef sharks when diving the barrier reef. Hardly Hooper in Jaws or anything.

I’ve been in a prison. Strangeways in about 1989.  Would not recommend.  Can understand why they rioted.

I visited my mates brother in Altcourse when I was home on leave from the Navy while I was still in training. I felt awful when he was asking me how it was and stuff, at that time in our lives all that we had in common was seeing plenty of cocks in the showers. Grim place, and that was just visiting. They should walk teenage brats around a prison and show them where they'll end up if they don't stop being a prick.

Has anyone ever...been caught out committing adultery?

Got served divorce papers at work from my wife’s husband at the time. Also I know someone who survived a plane crash unfortunately her baby daughter didn’t.

Has anyone ever completed a Panini sticker album without having to send off for stickers? I completed the Strawberry Shortcake and F******l ‘88 albums. I achieved the latter with the help of a

swap shop event held in, I think, WH Smith.

Yeah, there was a boss stall in Tuebrook Market in the 80s which sold surplus magazines at a massive discount. The powers that be put the kibosh on that eventually, and unsold periodicals just get pulped now. But back then they would also sell stickers, and you could get a full box of stickers with a few albums dead cheap.

Been in - as in locked up, no.

 

Been in - as in physically set foot inside, yeah. I did some surveying work at HMP Peterhead about a decade ago as 3 prisoners there were being a case through the court of human rights because of the conditions in there, as it’s a place barely modernised since it was built in Victorian times and was then (maybe still is I don’t know) the last UK prison where prisoners had to “slop out” and empty their own shit buckets.

 

It was a thoroughly oppressive place to be - not least because it snowed on the drive from Aberdeen both mornings in bloody May, but mainly because it’s such a a bleak, grey and cold landscape, with this giant Victorian compound of buildings.

we stayed in the Malmaison hotel in Oxford that was based on an ex prison. Does that count ?

I’ve stayed there too. Liked it but rooms were a bit on the small side

Anyone have more than 2 pockets on their trousers/shorts?

Appreciate the direction we are going here but all proper trousers and shorts have four pockets. In a dress pant maybe just three.

 

But yea, anyone wear cargos? In public?

So your wife was married to someone else and he served you divorce papers? Who were you getting divorced from?
