  1. Not everyone on a bicycle is a cyclist you nugget :-)
  2. Erm, she is just five on a tiny little bike with spokey dokeys - not really a 'cyclist'. Also, i never said cycling should be banned, but there are a lot of adults who should know better and there is no need for them to be on the walkway going full chat. Comprende?
  3. We always went to raves rather than organised parties. Actually went to one about a month ago. Still fun.
  4. I've met a few...
  5. The cyclists are a fucking menace on the prom walkway. There is no need for them to be on there. My wee offspring is learning to cycle and has no concept of having to go in a straight line on her bike. There is a good chance of broken bones the speed they go.
  6. Pretty judgemental calling them doss houses and that.

    House prices

    The house? https://www.cowleygroves.com/property/the-willows-douglas-road-ballasalla-im9-2an/ You are somewhat dumbing down the size and specification of house in question. This is a 6 bed 6 bath house of nearly 4,000 sq ft - approximately 4 times the size of a standard 3 bed semi. On a £ per sq ft basis of £215 per sq ft, this is bloody good value.

    Lol. World - listen up! A 3 year old car is cheaper and just as reliable as a new car!!

    Car Leasing

    I'd extend that to say that anyone who buys a new car using any means is crackers.
  11. That's fabulous. Isn't it missing a third sosig and birds nest though?!
  12. I ate three slices of toast this morning and had 3 cups of coffee. Think i might be a druid.
  13. What happened to these guys? https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/american-firm-wins-tt-broadcast-contract/
  14. That post is particularly belligerent, even by Manx standards.

    Car Leasing

    I imagine that the amount you pay to lease is more than depreciation. It has to be otherwise the business model wouldn’t work. I’d rather buy things outright without credit than have to incur an additional 30% premium due to cost of finance.
