  1. as long as they don't go jumping off any harbour walls......
  2. Very strange indeed, usually just beside the fridge-freezer is warmer due to the heat exchanger mounted on the back. I've not been around the back. It's normally when I open the door to get the cat its milk
  3. You should come and film at my house. There's a part of my kitchen which could be haunted as the temperature in this part of the room is noticeably a few degrees colder than the rest. It's just by the fridge-freezer.
  4. Yet it's fine to let motorcycle racers roar around the TT course at 200mph!
  5. I was there two years ago and it looked great, quite magical. Now it looks just a little sad .......
  6. 'Terry Cringle stole my girlfriend' I heard a bloke say that once .....what gives it spice is that the bloke was in his 30s at the time and Mr Cringe-Worthy was,....let's just say, getting on a bit
  7. Having just paid my annual visit I'm disappointed to see the bridge is not as decorated as it used to be. Even the hammock has gone. Have the scummy vandals been at it? Such a shame as it's a lovely spot to visit
  8. Saw it with my own eyes. Dept of Transport Officials cutting down the IOM Bay Festival direction signs this morning Should have put them up during TT week!
  9. Hmmm , interesting phrase ...'living life to the full' ....those unfortunates who have died at the TT didn't get to 'live life to the full' as they only managed to 'live life to a quarter' or the older ones perhaps 'lived life to a half' ........

    Didn't Peter Karran raise this issue at a political level?
  11. According to MR there are gonna be more fatalities http://www.manxradio.com/news.aspx
  12. it's not the guns that kill ......it's the bullets Just make bullets illegal and anyone who wants to shoot a gun for 'sport' should be able to do so with something that won't cause harm
  13. Is there a country in the World where gun possession is illegal?
  14. Let's just say that 'Mr TT Rider' visits the kids, gives out pictures, etc to which the children get very excited. That evening 'Mr TT Rider' is killed while riding around the circuit (quite conceivable) Would that not be upsetting for the kids to learn what happened? Is it that this is a harsh lesson in the reality of the TT and is just anaesthetising young children to the dangers of the TT? Is there any difference in having a 'war hero' from Afghanistan telling the kids about his exploits?
  15. I believe some of the TT riders have been visiting schools around the Island. Given the fatality rate associated with the event is this a good thing? Is it brain-washing young kids (from the age of 4 and upwards) into believing that the TT is a good thing, you know, get 'em on your side while they're young? Or is it a great opportunity for young school children to meet their heroes and feel a part of this motorsport event?
  16. I have just seen his wife and daughter in Shoprite. If I was putting up awning I would talk to strangers until the siblings came back to give me a hand
  17. I know a bloke who at the very mention of Terry Cringle's name comes out with 'he stole my girlfriend'

    I would be interested to know what makes a death at the TT 'acceptable'? Anyone care to elaborate?

    Did you know that every year there's been at least one fatality due to racing on the Mountain Course since World War 2 except 1982 and 2001 (whch was the year when there was no racing).
  24. That's not including any of the fans/visitors/locals/spectators who lost their lives ......
