    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from M.C. UK in Chinese steel   
    Go for the Vivaro - they are still built at Luton.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to SillyBilly in Chinese steel   
    In a past life I used to buy 200+ tonnes of steel a month. We discovered at one point the Chinese mills were selling Z250 galvanised steel (250 grams per metre squared of zinc on the surface) as Z600. Difference between the 2 grades in price from memory was about £100 a tonne at the time. This obviously affects the corrosion protection of the steel and ultimately its intended lifetime/building guarantees. They were adamant in not admitting the fraud too even when extensive third party testing was done to prove it. Chinese certificates mean nothing, they send the good stuff to the test house/bring it out when the inspector visits on audit day then ship the s**te immediately after. See it with "UN packaging" too, you buy drums/pails from China that purport to perform to certain standards (drop tests/pressure tests etc.) and pay to put it through the testing and you will get laughable results back. They don't give a f**k about quality.

    Do you think Owen Jones could be his love child?

    I always felt that Top Cat was an unbearably smug cunt.
    And that little shit ScrappyDoo absolutely fucking ruined ScoobyDoo. Writing it so that Scooby and Scrappy actually talk was a weird decision, even before they made Scrappy so irritating.

    From what I am led to believe, Trigger might well have been the brains of a two man brushing up operation if Harry was a member.

    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from Band in Women drinking pints instead of half pints   
    When I was in my early 20's I had a mate who drank Lager & Lime. I objected buying these in pints in case the barman / girl thought I had a bunch girlfriend.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Sideysid in Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder?   
    I had it as Fury by two points. First knock down was on the back of the head, second knock down was brutal. The second punch connecting as he was going down would have sparked any other boxer out there, Fury has one of the best chins I've seen to get up from that. If he managed to avoid just one of those knockdowns theres no way they could have swung it as a draw.
    Well Joshua needs to step up to the plate now. I'd like to see Wilder take him first, and I think Joshua will have his arse handed to him. Then a Fury re-match in the UK and a less ring-rusty Fury may then nick all the belts.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to JackieO in Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder?   
    I'm actually sorry I posted that...
    My impression of Fury was that he was just a pikey thug from Wythenshawe who just got lucky. I'm not to boxing so this "opinion" of him no doubt formed from the snippets Id seen in the MSM.
    Having read about him today and watched interviews with him and his wife, both he and his missus came across as decent and thoughtful people.
    I wish them well.

    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder?   
    I have  heard a lot of talk that Fury is technically the  best boxer int he heavy weight division. Really good footwork.

    I knew a guy who dated an extremely attractive black girl and 99.9% of the racism they suffered was from black men.

    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from Austin Allegro in When did you (mostly) stop buying things?   
    To be fair because my wife is a Muzzer she doesn't drink, smoke or gamble. 
    The first abstinence along saves us a fortune - not only on booze itself but we never need taxis when we go out!

    We are pretty good. 
    Most of my clothes come from Charity shops and a fair proportion of Mrs. B's
    My Mum  sorted out all my nephews old clothes and combined with donations from a friend most of what we dress Barlow Jnr in are hand-me-downs
    A lot of Barlow Jnrs toys are charity shop, donations from family, gumtree
    Likewise with household furniture
    For food we buy from Tesco and iceland where I get 4% and 7.5% discounts respectively (through work discount cards). 
    Mrs B works for a chemical manufacturer. We currently get Unilever products at a big discount. In last job we got about 10 years supply of P&G products for pennies (washing powder, washing up liquid, conditioner etc) 
    Anything we no longer need (usually toys these days) gets quickly sold on gumtree or FB.

    Its the Vitamin B12 deficiency. 
    If you read the article it obviously livened up the diners evening. They were laughing at them and then jeered them out of the place.

    M&S voiceover:
    These are not just vegans, they are pro-LGBT, remainer, snowflake, cucktard vegans...
    ...oh hang on, that is 90% of vegans.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Frank Hovis in Vegans Storm Brighton Steakhouse   
    This for me sums up the difference between vegetarians, who are perfectly normal people who have made a moral choice about what they eat, and vegans who are on a crusade.

    You don't get extremist meat eaters who go into vegan restaurants with plates of bacon sandwiches, you don't get extremist omnivores or vegetarians full stop.
    For some vegans though it's not a personal moral choice it's a whole belief system which they also wish to impose on everyone else.
     
    NB - I am saying that all food extremists are vegans and very much not all vegans are food extremists before somebody pops up with an example of a non-nuts vegan of whom there will be, of course, many.

    My brother was saying many of his trades folk friends switched to the Vauxhall Vivaro after that bit of treachery by Ford. The Vivaro as far as I'm aware is still built at Luton.

    I insist on leaving bathwater and sink water in until it has reached room temperature during winter time. Not flushing all that heat down the drain
