  1. I once saw a film about Turkey. If you get caught wont they put you in prison and the guard do some terrible things to you and dangling your from feet and that?
  2. Well, I thought an alternative angle ius better than all the glowing and Isle of Sam business, and general hysteria. Also, i wanted to reflect what comes over from the whole sorry show. Barry Humphries gushing, Andrew-Lloyd Webber letching etc. etc. The show itself and to be honest a lot of this show business stuff creeps me out and makes me cringe. Anyway, apologies. No offence intended,
  3. Manx Radio must think everyone at the TT is a silly teenager and giggling and stupid on wkd. There is after all only so much of Chris Williams' jokes and wisecracks you can take. Strangely though my irritation system has become nummed and immune to Alex Brindley. Should I continue to listen so the same happens with Chris et al or should I just switch and lissten to bbc Radio 4. I must say though that there is no way, no way at all that I could ever gt used to Andy Mitchell who has come back yet again to radio TT. Come back George Fergussin, all is forgiven!!!
  4. Hers a weblink to some photos of the carts for last year http://www.bbc.co.uk/isleofman/content/ima...n_gallery.shtml I think there is some good machines there
  5. Well as far as I understand it has never been fully established what it was that meatloaf would do anything - but he wouldn't do that was.
  6. So whether or not it is a misnomer, it is Foxdale. To "manxify" it as fuxdul is pretemtiousness, pseudo and effected. A dale is a dale is a dale. And so is a fox.
  7. I'm pretty sure there has been a byelaw in place, especially for Douglas promenade since 2001. If I remember correctly you can be told to stop drinking by the police and then if you are caught again then they can arrest you. This applies all year round - not just for TT, it's probably just enforced more that is all. Only info I can find off hand is this: http://www.gov.im/infocentre/archived_rele...a_drinking.html Same goes for Peel, Ramsey etc. thats actually very interesting. The no drink areas are strictly designated and in fact there is always an abundance of signs saying "i
  8. So you vote for Sam then. With Amy being so famouse and unpredictable and all that, it would be an interesting time plus you would be in teh papers and that and on tv
  9. Wiith Amy Winehouse repiorted as being on the Island for TT and of course Samantha being from here, who would you best want to spend an evening with and why? I personally can't decide and it isn't as easy a choice as I first thought. And where would you go on the Island for an evening out?
  10. The above is far to predicatble. What your young fella should do is learn pi to as many decimal places as possible (click it for 1000 places. Then change the number of syllables to talk in according to the next pi number.
  11. A bit off topic but: I think you will find most folk in Foxdale promounce it "fox-dale". Only Manx Radio DJs say "fox-del' or foxdul. same as Andreas, where most folk say and have always said "andree-as", not "an-drus". Only foolish comeovers and Manx Radio DJs come up with all this new sudo pronounciation shite. edited to say back on topic. tbh (to be honest) i;m not sure if i prefer Amy or Sam now. At least Amy is here on teh Island and you never do know, as the old folk used to say.
  12. I'm glad they are back safe. did anyone ever find Tony's weapons of mass destruction?
  13. Your not aloud to drink along Douglas Promenade. Even if there is NO ACTUAL LAW against it. (although maybe there should be - which I agrea to) This is actually Fascism at the thin edge of the end.
  14. Best not to knock the BBC until after Sam has done her singing and dance thing.
  15. I don't mean to put oil on troubled waters here, but 4 syllables is pretty easy. 8 or 16 is nigh on very difficult. You could be more powerful or intelligent than a 4er
  16. Sorry to but in on the thread, which is normally excellent, but I have not been reading much of it or posting because I am following and concentrating on the Samantha Nancy thread. Plus it's TT. I'll come back to you with what I think. That is the good thing about computer chatting because you can wait a bit and think before you say something.
  17. I quite enjoy listening to her singing too, and the dynamic dancing. cross post to VK Well, I feel Im helping the cause though and will be phoning on Saturday IF Samantha sings well enough that is . b4 (before) I spend money on a girl she has to show me she is worth it.
  18. Actually it should be that's and we're. Your not helping the cause really by showing we can't even spell.
  19. And i would agrea hence the remark about trying to prevent it in the first place so we won't be talking about all this in 9month and more time beyond now, again. It is actually quite simple, but all this barn door closing is what makes mhks smug.
  20. I agrea and there's no sense crying over spilt milk and so yes i suppose the situation has to be sorted. but for the future, we should tell all the 10 year old girls or whatever age you think best to warn them, that having a baby might put them in this situation that these poor girls are in up at the college. If you make them aware earlier that having a baby might be quite expensive and could even stifle your career progress unless you are a professional advocate or one of those type. It really is a catch 2020 situation.
  21. Maybe the mum's should get together and have a cooperative and take it in turns looking after other peoples kidds. That waty everybody is happy.
  22. I forgot to mention that when i first put laces in my shoes then the laces start off from the outside to the inside then overlap, rather than both start from the left or the right. Equally as effective is starting them from the inside to the outside. This way, if you are on a long walk the shoes aren't lopsided even by a little bit and in theory at least this will stop you walking around in circles, or rather in reality it would be one big circle as i agree it wouldn't have that much effect. It couldn't make yiou funnily veer into the road or anything so there's nothing really to wo
  23. I was going to say the same, but you beat me to it!! I'll be ringing you on my mobile on Saturday Sam!!
  24. I once said hello and that to a friend on teh internet and they all told me to get a room I was only being friendly too
