Re: Surstromming

Gross, isn't it? There's an interesting note at the end of the wikipedia listing for Surstromming. Apparently a tenant and landlord were in dispute in Germany in 1981 about the tenant eating Surstromming in the flat. To persuade the court of how bad the smell was, the landlord opened a can in the co...

Surstromming

This appears to be the new 'challenge' sweeping the internet. A tad more trying than tipping a bucket of water over your head.

£4,800

Don't buy anything from ebay right now for £4,800.

The site seems to have become infected with bikes for sale - all at £4,800 - that require you to email the seller's mate, leave a deposit with a Nigerian prince and take out a time share - or something like that.

Just came across this quick test, which is a bit of fun. It placed me pretty accurately. You might want to give it a go...

Re: UBCO - world’s first production 2WD electric moto

Interesting looking thing but my god why do they design it to be so small and low and imagine how so many things will change when batteries can actually deal with a real range of a couple of hundred miles It's getting there, Mike. For a decent day of hooning about greenlaning on an enduro-style bik...

I'd pay very good money for a time machine front row weekend pass to Woodstock 69. I was just 3 years old at the time!

I saw Carlos at Wembley in about 2001, but that's not the same thing at all...

Re: Today I are mainly listening to ...

That Prefab Sprout track was 'interesting', Ian. Actually I've listened to it a couple more times and it's growing on me (ugh). I've had a 90s day today. So much good stuff I could pick out, but I basically went back to the bands I saw when I was at Uni in Bristol. Massive Attack, Portishead etc. ht...

Re: Slippery Arse

Oh God.

Do you remember what used to be said about Hitchcock's movies? That they were so effective because he led you to imagine the worst without actually showing it?

Maybe, Scotsy, you should take that advice... :)

Re: RIP John Haynes (Haynes Manuals)

I remember flicking through the autotrader and going off to look at some cheap piece-of-shit car or bike I liked the look of. Often the seller would have a Haynes manual in the boot, and you could get an idea of what had gone wrong with the car by looking for the pages with most oil stains and dirty...
