  1. The original post showed young vandals at work. There are vandals among testosterone-charged youths in any country. This is why it's important that when the British go abroad they don't behave like mindless yobs. When they do they let down their country as these soldiers did. Right now, the world views the British military as a bunch of spineless hairdressers, because a few couldn't stand up to being kept in a room on their own for a few days without totally capitulating to their captors. But I wouldn't say all British are cowards just as the video being used here shouldn't be used to condemn all Americans. There are bad apples in every barrel.
  2. What would you say the general attitude is to using an available power outlet to plug in a laptop in a pub or cafe?
  3. fnkysknky...THANKS!! That's just what I needed. I had no idea that network existed. I have added the link to my favourites.
  4. I will be visiting Sheffield at the end of April and will need to connect my laptop to the Internet so I can work. Where I live I can find a wireless connection easily, but last time I was in Sheffield I had no success finding a connection. Does anybody know of hotel lobbies, cafes, etc where I can go to connect wirelessly to the Internet? Or is there a public network that I can buy a temporary subscription to? Thanks!
  5. Turning on my car radio outside Los Angeles Airport, the first news item I heard was that a restaurant in Sheffield, England was busy following the death of the russia spy, because its name is Polonium. Next came the voice of a waitress with a distinctive Sheffield accent. Just found it mildly interesting to find Sheffield making news internationaly.
  6. Last night these two bouncers And one of em's alright The other one's the scary one His way or no way, totalatarian He's got no time for you Looking or breathing How he don't want you to So step out the queue He makes examples of you And there's nowt you can say Behind they go through to the bit where you pay And you realise then that it's finally the time To walk back past ten thousand eyes in the line And you can swap jumpers and make another move Instilled in your brain you've got something to prove To all the smirking faces and the boys in black Why can't they be pleasant? Why can't they have a laugh? He's got his hand in your chest He wants to give you a duff Well secrectly I think they want it all to kick off They want, arms flying everywhere and Bottles as well it's just Something to talk about A story to tell you ARCTIC MONKEYS
  7. I don't know where you're doing your research, but I think you're absolutely wrong. In vibrant cities throughout the world people are choosing city living. I don't think you can compare grandiose public housing schemes where people were forcibly moved, with people who invest in city living by choice. I also think you're ignoring modern socio-economic factors. However, I think there's a danger in over-building by speculators in cities like Sheffield that have very little draw on new population. These 'me too' schemes that try to copy what is happening in growing cities may well end up as financial and social disaters.
  8. I'd get rid of all those stalls on Fargate, especially that big burger van that turns up right outside the townhall. And I'd chase off all the illegal street vendors from around the market and high street.It all makes the place look and smell like a depressed east European city.
  9. I don't see a ban making much of a difference. British society seems based around going out on Saturday night to binge drink. Being publicly drunk is somehow thought cool and funny. Try staggering around an American city drunk and abusive, with or without a bottle in your hand, and see how far you get. It's just not tolerated like it is in the UK. I think attitudes need to change before a law can make much difference.
  10. It's been a long long time since I ever visited a Sheffield club and I wouldn't even know the names of any now. I wonder what they are like these days. Do girls still dance around handbags? Do girls still go to the toilet en masse? Do blokes still hang around the edges of the dancefloor with pints in there hands staring at the girls? Do youths still threaten to beat you senseless for looking at them or their girlfriend? Are bouncers still psychotic loonies itching to start a fight with the patrons?
  11. I was once in a pub in Low Edges and a bloke in there was talking to my brother about a bloke he knew who was a house burglar. He seemed quite positive about him saying that he was a decent bloke, because he "didn't steal from people like us." I was disgusted with his attitude in thinking that it's ok to steal as long as you pick on people wealthier than yourself.
  12. People derided the Hole in the Road when it was built. They derided the Hole in the Road throughout its life. Now the Hole in the Road has gone it's suddenly a great loss. That's nostalgia for you.
  13. Ouch, tha't reight probably. I'm fed up now, and I should have gone to bed hours ago too.
  14. I find it laughable that the management at Northern General Hospital were unable to predict the shambles that would ensue when they started charging their 7000 staff for parking. So, everyone parks on the streets of Firvale instead. Surprise? I was there in August with my father and he was telling me then what was going to happen. He's an 80+ year old pensioner with no background in facilities management. How the 'eck could you have been taken by surprise, Mr. Riley?
