  1. Folks who complain about voicemail Just turn it off. Aoanyhoo, phones are for outgoing. Not incoming. Throw it in a fuggin' drawer, or a puddle or volcano. Woosh!
  2. Hey, this could be a new thread! "├ćnema" by Tool... Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see Armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will. I sure could use a vacation from this Bull. shit. three. ring. cir-cus. side. show. of freaks...
  3. Rugby is a poofy nawbag wanksport

    I've got a golf advert on this thread.
  4. World Cup Draw,,

    Could have been so exciting, but didn't even know it was on until I browsed the TAMB. Nope, still nothing. What's the equivalent of Viagra for the WC?
  5. No, buy I've gubbed my left shoulder and can't wash my right armpit or left buttock
  6. Arlene Foster

    At least she's given us a definition of British culture.
  7. Thanks for the link Toepoke. I managed to miss the programme each time it was on TV. I'd just finished reading Wings on my Sleeve coincidentally. I read that several times aircraft manufacturers would get into difficulty and ask Farnborough and hence Winkle to dig them out their hole. Must have been pretty scary stepping into the DH.108 to replicate the fault that killed its previous test pilot, then having such a narrow escape too. The 3rd and final prototype killed his successor too. The number of deck landings is amazing when you consider attrition rates as well Biffer. Even in operational service 38% of the RN's Sea Vixens were lost in accidents, killing 51 aircrew, and 51% of their Scimitars too. (Plus he did a lot of simulated deck landings and catapult take-offs on land, and a load of undercarriageless landings on a matress.) Scary Sea Vixen pic. The wee helicopter's job is to fish the aircrew out the drink as required.
  8. New TAMB Logo

    Oh feck, aye! Next away strip mibbee?
  9. Thought that was the Daily Mash for a minute. Only 1,800ft for the first attempt. He could drive up 14,000ft in Colorado to give himself a start.
  10. New TAMB Logo

    Oh, Mediterranian sky now? Neither shirt-of-darkest-blue, nor Pantone 600 optomistic-Scottish-summer. A bit royal no? (Toss-grenade-and-leave emoticon...) Looks a bit bolder on-screen I suppose.
  11. The final World Cup game at Hampden?

    Superb statement by QPFC.
  12. Hampden - stay or go?

    A lot better view at Hampden than I've had at many away games. Admittedly from N or S stands here versus stuck way up high, way down low , in a corner or behind a net overseas. Worst for me was the game at the Emirates, where I had a letterbox view under a stand behind a goal. N stand effectively has safe standing too as it's not dangerously steep like some places. Could that be formalised? Perhaps some work could be done to pull in the E, W stands as previously suggested.

    Absolutely; those two were linesman calls. The reason I'd like to see complete footage again, was that my impression was that the ref was against us throughout... What I saw time and again was that an Italian attack would break down and we'd break quickly. Around the half way line with many of their players still up the park they'd foul us. (No yellows in those days for that.) We'd try to take the free kick, but each time the ref would wave us back a couple of yards to the "correct spot". Meanwhile of course, Italy are all back and organised. Subtle ...until the incident. For me sitting around half way, this seemed to happen several times. Not even sure it would show up on TV, as they could be cutting to replays or other shots, but would like to see.
  14. Jeeez, I understand that film a lot better now

    Is there a video of the whole game anywhere, not just highlights? I came away with the impression that the ref was bought, and not just from that free kick. I've never seen the game on TV however to check again. Didn't see any bother in town, but we went to a pretty empty Italian restaurant. Staff seemed a bit taken aback at first!
