Amazon Prime Day.  These people need to wake up and send me a link.  I have no idea what I'm buying when it comes to high tech doorbells. :lol:  Forget the surprise.  Lets just get this gift right.

I heard they won by default due to a stupid rule that in the event of a tie the team that bats first just automatically wins? Fucking lame if that's the case and we were robbed.

In the event of a tie I think they each play an over and whoever scores most in their over wins...I think, I didn't watch it myself.

In the event of a tie they each play 1 over and the team with the most runs wins. In this case there was still a tie after the extra over so the team with the most boundaries won.

They should have done a 2nd over/sudden death then imo, kind of a lame way to end an apparently epic match. I don't even like cricket I'm just competitive lol

England won in crickets? Almost as amazing as Norway being best at skiing. 

Apart from the fact half the world likes 'crickets'' whereas skiing is played/supported by a few royals and Eddie the eagle. nice try though.

So I was in Manchester yesterday and there was a lass begging near Piccadilly Station. I'd had a few so I gave her a couple of quid then popped into the nearby Sainsbury and thought I'd be charitable. Get her a few cans, something to eat and a packet of fags.

So in my head 4 Fosters is about 4 quid and a sarnie is a couple of quid so with ten ciggs I could do a good deed for about a tenner. Who the fuck knew that you can't buy a ten deck anymore and more to the point it's fucking 13 QUID for 20 Marlboros!!!!!!!! 

19 fucking quid I got stung for!!!! No good deed goes unpunished and all that eh? :lol:

After a weekend of heavy cocaine and alcohol use I have decided to take my life in a different direction before I end up like one of Dazey's mates.

 

Sobriety starts now.

And by mates what we really mean here is itinerant vulnerable persons of the Greater Manchester area whom he takes advantage of for sexual favours :lol:

So happy a guy from Florida caught the little 5 foot gator that was swimming in a Chicago area. He will be put in a zoo. The gator was so cute and the guy said he was also very tired from swimming all that time. Glad this was a happy ending.

I appreciate the support ... I'ts pretty strange how when your in the moment of madness you don't realise your hurting your family and those close to you or your addictions.

 

Oh well onwards and upwards spending more time with my Son and Wife will help for sure ... Watching United maybe not so much LOL

Sorry to hear it, man.

It's good people who are able to build a good home life. Thats cool.

If I had my way, I'd love to learn to sail one day and do some journeys. Coconut bikini ladies. Theres these famous wild boars on some beach in the Bahamas. Rum and cokes. Spear fishing. All that stuff. You're invited.

You'll be alright fella.  The truth is EVERYONES job is shit.  No one likes doing it.  Its just a necessity innit, its what you plow through for the privelige of making it to the sofa or the stadium to watch the football, or go out with your mates or just stay at indoors and have a cuddle with the missus.  The trick is to never lose your sense of humour because quite frankly, in the best sense of the word, thats all life is really, a big joke and you're in on it.  Our insignificance in the overall scheme of things, when you REALLY look at it, makes our problems laughable as well.  I don't mean to trivialise, I just mean like...just try to see the ridiculous side of it.  All the disgrunted lorry driving, narky clenched arsed supervisors, saddo team leaders, the curtain twitching complaints brigade, if you think about it, on some level its all quite cartooney.  Shows like The Office have been made specifically to take the piss out of our sort of workplace for crying out loud.
