    They are not mate. Had mine last week and it was Moderna. Thankfully no side effects such as the sore arm I had getting the Pfizer.

    Has any one ever...? Tell us about it.

    Not that night, but fortunately we had previously done that pre marraige thing - had sex during the day when it was still daylight, we were both sober and it was not a special occasion.

    Has any one ever...? Tell us about it.

    My heart stopped twice so technically yes. Was going out with a girl who worked for Stakis Hotels which meant we got to stay in any hotel in the uk for £10 a night including all meals. Went for a weekend in Manchester and ate in the hotel. Thought I would be very cosmopolitan and ordered the escargot. Turns out I am allergic and had a had an anaphylactic reaction. Last thing I remembered was lying in the foyer with the manager asking her to take me back to the room a I was upseting the residents. I have no idea what happened after that but she told me my heart stopped twice and they brought me back until somebody twigged what it was and admistered the right drugs. Spent six days in hospital and have not been back.

    Dog Pics

    This is not mine, but only dogs bring this amount of joy.
  5. This ref is going to send someone off tonight. Need to make sure it's not one of ours.

    Walter Smith

    Lived in Helensburgh for many years. Met him many times and saw him about town regularly. Always seemed happy to talk to anyone who asked for his time, even those from the other side of the divide which made him well respected locally. A decent human being.

    Hangover Cures

    If i know i am going to have a sesh i do the following: eat cheese, before or during - it helps absorb the alcohol cup of tea before you go to bed - force yourself even if you don't want it Irn Bru - only the genuine stuff because it works. The only caveat to the above is Single Malt. Drink enough of that and no matter what you do, you will have to write off the next day.

    Other Football 2021/22

    Like him or laothe him, Ronaldo is a born winner and will vastly improve any team he plays for. The impact he wil have in the Utd dresing room will far outweigh any incompetence gollum brings to the team. There is some real quality in that squad, which has to date, been mismanged by golloum. Their squad might well win in spite of gollum and not because of him. Anyone who is trying to convince themsleves that they will not challenge for the league needs to give their head a wobble.

    Crappiest place you've been to in the UK

    Ferguslie Park in Paisley (around 30 years ago) was the most deprived place I have ever been. What few local shops there were, were boarded up but stiil open, one even had a bouncer on the door!! Burnt out cars all over the place, rubbish everywhere, absolutely nothing in the way of civic amenities. They spent an absolute fortune knocking down a load of the older housing stock but failed yet again to provide a focal point for the community. Everyone in faux shock that it failed again!

    Crappiest place you've been to in the UK

    Had a lot of family who stayed in Tollcross. Whilst the residents could never be descibed as well heeled, I never felt threatened and people were mostly sound. Very little in the way of commnity facilties though.
  11. 1. Danny McGrain. 2. Cafu. 3. Lillian Thuram. In my humble opinion McGrain is streets ahead of the other 2, but he will never get the recognition he deserves because he did not play for a "big" continental team.
  12. This is ridiculous. Utterly effortless.

    Argos Electrical Equipment Refund

    Under the Consumer rights act 2015 you have 30 days from purchase to reject the goods as not fit for purpose and you can demand a refund. This may be a pain in the arse, but if you are up for a scrap (I'm Scottish so it's genetic) take it back to the shop and tell them you wish to reject the laptop as not fit for puspose, listing the faults. Remind them they have a leagl obligation unedr the act I mentioned above to refund you as the goods are less than 30 days old. They will try and bullshit you with the excuse that she has activated windows so they are unable to accept it as a return. This is a common argument, and the law states that this is an acceptable action if it is required to establish the goods are in working order. If this does not work there are a number of other avenues but keep a note of the store, the time and the person you spoke to and I can let you know the next options. Do not go to Acer yet mate as this is this mobs modus operandi and they rely on people eventually giving up.

    You've been drinking the same beers as me. Is it great minds think alike or fools seldom differ?

    Argos Electrical Equipment Refund

    Lee, did she buy it online or in store? Don't go to Acer. Your contract is with Argos so don't allow theh to muddy the waters and pass the buck.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Man on internet says something. Other man on internet says something else. Another man on internet likes what man says but not what the other man says. Yet another man, who likes the man but not the other man, says that another man should not be saying such things about the man. Repeat the above ad infinitum. Stronts gets negged.

    Miami Building Collapse

    The most liklely cause is unauthorised or insufficiently engineered alterations. If they were in or around the core, it would not take a great deal of change of loading to dramatically alter the stresses on the structure. Once one component fails, it trasfers the load to adjacent components and if these have not been engineered for such a load it also fails until such times as it reaches the catastrophic failure point which is when the whole lot comes down. There is a phrase oft used in modern building structures "add lightness". This is what happens when you get it wrong. As with the majority of these disasters, the people making wrong decisions are never the victims of these poor chioces.

    She is very pretty. I would give her my shiny Charizard card if she let me touch her front bottom.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    How many potatoes can you grow in a window box?
  21. I am not from Liverpool so can only comment on what I see as an outsider. I remember the last time I visited the city with @Jennings. I bored him shitless wittering on about the architecture of the buildings in the city centre. There are some truly stunning buildings there and the whole of the city has an air of industry and purpose about it. Some cities have a feel of claustrophobia and an unwelcome aura (Manchester is one, Peterborough another) but I never feel anything other than relaxed and a little bit in awe of the scale of the docks when I am in Liverpool. There is a serious danger of the city going the way of Glasgow Clydeside in that it could be swallowed up by spreadsheet developers trading industrial heritage for Brise Soleil bedecked, glazed and powder coated aluminium clad monstrosities. I do hope it doesn't as I Love the city.

    House insurance problem

    Have they accepted liability in terms that are unambiguous Dave? Might sound a silly question but they can be very slippery. If so I would collate the series of events with timelines and send them in the form of a letter (include all your evidence including their offer). Inform them of any hardships or inconvenience the delay is causing you (be specific and factual) and send it to them stating that they have 7 days from the date of the letter to provide a satisfactory resolution or you will refer it to the FOS. (https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/businesses/complaints-deal/insurance/home-buildings-insurance/accidental-damage). I cannot guarantee this will work mate as I do not know the wording of your policy but it might prompt a response to move it forward. Good luck.

    House fixy-uppy shit

    That's disappointing if they have done work for you before. It is a sellers market at the moment and most tradesmen have very full order books ( working from home has led a lot of homeowners wanting alterations). Add that to the usual spring renewal frenzy and it's the perfect storm for anyone looking for building work to be done. Not helpful I know, but would perhaps explain why a previously reliable and cost effective tradesman is suddenly not as helpful.
