  1. My oil boiler lasted about the same, it was the same one too. I can't remember what was wrong with it but it was leaking and got told it needed replacing. Expensive buggers though, went for gas in the end.
  2. But there was something built on it, which was well used for many years. How many of us learned to swim at the Aquadrome, got pissed at the Cave or the Piazza level, went roller skating or to the pictures?

    It's sad whoever it is.
  4. Has to be untrue to be libel.
  5. happening once is unfortunate but for it to happen twice is being stupid. I mean, parking on such a main road is asking for possible carnage however the thought of having to walk 100yds and taking 30 seconds out of your life and parking it in the car park by the pub is probably not a thought worth entering in to..... Victim blaming much? How hard can it be not to smash into a parked car?
  6. Do you have a taxi by any chance ? A taxi would have gone via Port Erin.
  7. I want to know who was there who was deemed better than us mere mortals.
  8. Nobody is in the least bit surprised.
  9. They do look daft though.

    They could get a few quid back by flogging them to Rambo.

    I'm cool with that.
  13. Unfortunately there's some right thickos out there. Probably best to ban them.
  14. http://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_381553.html. Facebook in utter bollocks shock.
  15. What is the difference between a beef burger and a Kangaroo burger ?I have never seen any Kangroo bugers advertised in any butchers here on the island. You used to be able to get them in what's now Iceland in Douglas, can't remember which guise, Safeway maybe? They also did wild boar, Ostrich and a few others of similar elk. They were quite nice, similar to Venison I recall. The wild board sausages were really nice. Iceland/Shopshite has a range of frozen, unusual meats. Can't help thinking that if the entire population of feral wallabies is descended from a single pair, there must be some genetic issues in them. I think they are blind.

    The problem is, they've changed it, not told anyone what it looks like, but kept the planning application open and not changed the deadline for comments.
  17. If someone could do me a spreadsheet of each poster and their sock puppets, I'd be grateful.
  18. Source? For what? Just for an example or two, The government of Victoria fund and promote the Australian GP, the regional government supports the Jerez GP in Spain, the same in the Czech Republic with Brno. I have attended all of these and witnessed the aftermath of road accidents involving fatalities at all of them. And these just last for three days each. I was hoping for something verifiable, independent and specific regarding the frequency of such incidents over a number of years. Oh well... Then you should have asked for it. Max provided the source: him.
  19. Ok, I'm just going to come out and ask it. Gee Cee....don't you like the TT?
  20. To be safe they should stop it being a pub and make it a house or something.
  21. So that's four bye elections now. How much is this costing us?
  22. Are you on Facebook? There is a letter template here: https://www.facebook.com/douglaspromenade?ref=ts&fref=ts
  23. Kurt Cobain died at 27. Imagine if he had lived even a few more years, what amazing albums we could all be listening to right now. Or Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix .... Only it wouldn't really have rolled out that way. If you want to see what happens when you lead a life of excess but don't quite manage to die at 27 - read the biography of the Guns and Roses bassist Duff McKagan. His pancreas exploded at 30 nearly poisoning him to death through alcohol abuse. At 51 he's a teetotal business consultant offering financial advice to budding rock stars who want to keep their money rather than get ripped off or piss it all away through drink and drugs. That's probably what would have happened to Kurt Cobain had he lived ...... No guarantee of carrying on the legacy of abuse and creativity into middle age. Duff still has a band, Loaded. It's cool, quite hard and punky.
