  1. All caused by crap traffic light sequences. Where is Matt these days anyway?
  2. If you give someone the authority to close the road they will probably close it at their first opportunity to make themselves feel more important. It’s human nature.
  3. The UK is at risk of running out of gas in certain areas over the next few days according to the scary media. Hopefully our gas pipeline to Pully power station won’t get switched off.
  4. Most people buy a scratch card and take it home to see what they’ve won. I just ask the checkout person to scan it before I leave the checkout.
  5. Windy and Brandish don’t flood. Ever.
  6. I generally ignore Road closed signs because they’re usually only there because nobody from the DOI has been assed to remove them yet.

    Xmas lights

    Outdoor LED lights are old school this year. Laser is where it’s at now.
  8. Why do the amenity sites show their closing times (usually) as 16:30 but then underneath it says ‘gates close 15 minutes before closing time’? Why not just say closing time is 16:15?
  9. It looks as though the Isle of Man Government Senior Manager for baked potatoes successfully retired from their 80K position through the MARS scheme last week according to this news report. http://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/potato-ban-perplexes-parents/
  10. How much money could you typically get for scrapping a car these days?
  11. I saw some giant Cadbury’s Whole Nuts in there on Monday which I wouldn’t mind getting on the cheap.
  12. Shoot the ‘let’s get ready to rumble’ American twat too.
  13. Anyway...I hope this woman’s tent is well pegged down.
  14. I wouldn’t worry yourselves bout it too much. Kim Jong Dong is going to nuke us all soon anyhoo.
  15. Yeah but even if the fish could get up stream to spawn you’d be sat with your fishing rod ready to catch them before they got there anyway.
  16. Shouldn't we've closed the road outside the front of Ronaldsway by now?
  17. Considering MT and Sure both charge about £300 a month for their 1Mb symmetric connections I think a Gb connection is going to be silly money.

  19. I saw them this morning at Guthries about 8:30 but the cyclist ban didn't start until 11am so they should've been well out of the way by then.
  20. No it didn't. It ran freely gathering speed for 200 metres.

    Strang Road

    Most roads on the island are single carriageways, actually.

    Noisy bikes

    Motorbike owners who unnecessarily rev the balls off their bikes for no apparent reason annoy me.
  23. I wish Buster would stop phoning Talking Heads and spouting his crap. I've enjoyed the easy listening and humour at lunch time for years but he's really ruining it.
