  1. Does anyone think a backward facing Islamic state like Saudi is capable of understanding any show of descent?
  2. I have more to say on the subject than your feeble attempts at making excuses for Islamic extremists. It is you that is an insult to mankind.
  3. I think they have a jolly good go. That's why York council made over £1 million when they closed a bridge to traffic. No one deliberately drives through an enforcement camera in order to get fined. They do it because there are a dozen road signs that they can't take in during the 2 seconds they are driving by. The dozen signs are put there to confuse motorists so they will drive over the bridge and get fined.
  4. Do you run a restaurant? Mind you they were knocking out £45 turkeys for £11.50 in Tesco on Christmas Eve. If we'd had 14 I might have bought one, although I might have needed a new (bigger) oven to cook it.
  5. Wow this thread is going really well. I'm sure halibut has really convinced folk the human rights are really on a march in Saudi.
  6. Well as the chances of getting a taxi to Bretton and back for less than about £80 is pretty remote and getting a taxi out there any evening is zero I'd take the car. Not exactly rocket science, hey? It all boils down to whether you want to spend your days roaming the country on public transport or being a taxi driver for someone else. I'm not sure that I would but it seems you are. ---------- Post added 12-12-2013 at 13:37 ---------- Would you insure each boyfriend/girlfriend to drive your car?
  7. So as the only driver the wife gets stuck with the driving every time. I suppose you don't have to go to all the trouble of going out to Bretton providing you can persuade your mate not to have his birthday meal there. ---------- Post added 12-12-2013 at 13:22 ---------- Would you insure each boyfriend/girlfriend to drive your car?
  8. How do you get to the station. By car? And going to Grindleford by train has just stuck another mile on that hike to the pub. ---------- Post added 12-12-2013 at 13:16 ---------- But not being able to drive does.
  9. Wow that's a tough one. I think it goes something like this. You get invited out for a meal at the Barrel at Bretton. Your wife has a car and thinks I'll go along in that on my own and my husband who doesn't drive can take 3 buses until he reaches Grindleford and then hike the last 5 miles across the moors. I do believe the idea of owning a car is so you can go places in it not leave it parked outside to prevent bird muck from landing on the drive. The fact that only one partner can drive certainly sorts out those debates about whose turn it is to drive.
  10. Doesn't that rather justify what the OP was saying. If you drive yourself and go out with a guy who can't drive you wind up stuck with a halibut and get stuck with ferrying him around for the rest of your life.
  11. It was you that chose the example of overweight Rugby players as a sign of it being healthy. I just picked a few examples of Rugby players having heart attacks which is a sign that they aren't. Don't confuse health with strength. Tommy Simpson did that many years ago. The medical people are trained experts. I listen to them rather than some lardy who is desperate to convince themselves that the doctors are wrong and big fat is a sign of health and their cracked toilet seat was just faulty.
  12. I'm not sure that Rugby players class as fit. They take tubs of supplements and shall we say steroids with a view to building up BMI. http://www.exeterexpressandecho.co.uk/Tributes-paid-Exeter-rugby-player-died-heart/story-18846810-detail/story.html http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/21783785 http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-11-06/an-samoan-rugby-star-peter-fatialofa-dies-from-a-heart-attack/5072748 http://www.torquayheraldexpress.co.uk/Family-pays-tribute-Totnes-rugby-player-died/story-19994778-detail/story.html Perhaps they should spend more time listening to their doctors and less time to the man with the jar of pills.
  13. That's right. Those stupid NHS and WHO professionals. They go to university to study medicine for a few years and then they think they know more about it than the folk who know everything about every subject on Sheffield Forum. http://www.northessex.nhs.uk/Young%20People/what-is-bmi.htm Why anyone goes to see a doctor I'll never know. It is far better to log on here and get your medical advice from an out of work plumber.
  14. That's right. Everyone I know who has a rubbish BMI says the same so it must be right.
  15. No. You are a bigot who cannot tolerate anyone who doesn't agree with you very jaundiced view of reality. ---------- Post added 10-12-2013 at 23:35 ---------- That sums it up for me..
