    You appear to believe that this board popped into existence the day you started posting on it. Scotty's bible-based cosmology has been discussed on a number of threads over the years and thoroughly refuted to the satisfaction of everybody except Scotty (ok, maybe one other …). Hence, no need to plough the same furrow again.

    It's Ormond's birthday (well, it is in Japan … you, and he even more so, will have to wait a few hours yet). Maybe outing himself on the TAMB was just a mid-life crisis. He'll be buying a Harley next. Happy birthday (in ten hours CST) Ormond!

    Ta for sorting those for me Orraloon; I imagine its something to do with my browser settings.

    Guess I can't imbed Youtube anymore. Ah well.

    Pete Shelley

    Aye, sad to see him gone. First saw Buzzcocks at an Anti-Nazi League rally in Manchester in '77. Next around '79 at a club in Sheffield and Joy Division were the support. Last saw 'em maybe 15 years back. Pete had put on the pounds - enjoying himself, I hope. Loads of good memories with Pete Shelley connections. Early Buzzcocks using a riff that I guess had been left them by Howard Devoto - he used it again with Magazine's 'Shot By Both Sides': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7_hYWbJDtc Pete solo - colliding with early '80s sequencing; still toe-tapping though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HwmO_GZfzI
  6. I was simply pointing out your error of fact. There are no one-to-one analogies - Scotland's situation is unique (as is every other country's).
  7. No it's not. The Republic of Texas: 1846. I suppose you could also argue East Germany: 1990.

    Glenn Hoddle

    Yes and Yes. And then 1.07: keeper, header, header, volley, ball touches the earth at the back of the net, Shilton wonders who to blame. Duncan II's use of 'beauty' is bang on - Hoddle brought it to the game again and again.
  9. Parklife wasn't talking about you; he explicitly says that he's referring to the poster with the highest number of reputation points. However, to be fair, thinking he was talking about you does make you come across as dumb as fuck.
  10. I'm well aware of Scotland's separate legal and education systems, thank you. I was simply pointing out that there's significant shared culture when compared to the EU. FWIW, the only worthwhile measure of cultural affinity is how easy it is for a member of one culture to use a supermarket in another.
  11. Really? It takes a fairly bizarre reading of history to suggest that the dissolution of a 300-year-old political union - a nation state with all the shared cultural and economic elements that have developed with it - is on a lesser scale than leaving an economic grouping that has only really attempted a strong political focus since the early 1990s. This doesn't mean that dissolving the UK is either impossible or undesirable, it just means that your statement is myopic.
  12. So did I. But upon opening the thread last night, found it had been resurrected by that Debora poster: "Good evening. While waiting for a bus I overheard two people discussing bitcoin and they recommended this site … <some link or other>". Obviously a bot, so I made a post pointing this out. Woke this morning (my time) to find that both posts had been deleted (and at least one more as I had a notification that Ally B had quoted my post) … then I forgot about it as we had a bit of an earthquake, and a 6.1er tends to monopolize the concentration.

    Now then … Malcolm Owen, Joe Strummer, Ian Curtis, Ari Up, Lemmy (+ Fast Eddie & Phil), Lee Brilleaux, Mick Green (The Pirates), Bert Weedon ...
  14. That upgrade was certainly a factor. The Euros; the post-2014 hangover really kicking in; the rise of other forms of social media ...
