    The ‘StarCircle’

    Lots on Ebay, put something like " Number plate sticker Union Jack " or Brexit in the search box. (Check sizes carefully, some are tiny; others are designed to completely cover the EU flag.)

    Anyone fancy a trip to the pictures?

    As a cheapskate Dosbodder, the last time I went to the cinema was to see The Usual Suspects in 1995. Can anyone beat this record?

    DIY Health Assessment

    It may be a Northern thing, but round here you get offered a full GP MOT (with blood samples taken) at age 40, then more at 5-year intervals. Worth doing. I had my first aged 50, and they found that I had an obscure iron disorder. A friend found that his kidneys were working at below 20% capacity. Neither of us had any symptoms at all.
  4. People saying "S/he text me" instead of texted...often happens in Coronation Street.

    Phone obsessed - not just youths

    Any other mobile phone Luddites here? I've got a Nokia 1800 dumbphone which cost me £9.99p seven years ago.
  6. Just checked the bin..they were the After Eight long pack above. Tasted just like the old Mintolas. Next to them in the shop were the traditional Munchies in the red packs Not seen Golden Cups for many years though. .
  7. Just had a packet! From a filling station. Have seen them in Home Bargains and Martin's Newsagents too.

    Cars for the non-petrolheads

    Another fan here of Toyotas and Hondas. (Year 2000 Yaris owner currently.) If you're going to be doing a lot of motorway miles, an Avensis would be better than a Yaris..more road presnce and less tailgating. Friend with a 2005 1.8 Avensis gets 40+ mpg on average. Nissans were great until the year 1999, when they merged with Citroen. Newer Mazdas have Ford mechanicals I think. Bit worrying that the Yaris is now built in France; hope other models aren't affected!

    Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites

    Yes, that's true. Rollo Tomassi's Dual Strategy/Epiphany Phase theories..the sexy Alpha for genetics, and the Beta for provisioning. (Women might not want to be treated badly/too indifferently by the Alphas, but it goes with the territory; Alphas don't take the woman too seriously, and can get another one very easily.) Supplicating Betas are regarded as very low sexual market value by women, but the benefits are houses, cars, holidays etc. I think Omegas are the chubby basement-dwelling blokes who can never get a girlfriend. Sigmas are Alphas with loner-ish tendencies who don't particularly want to lead groups. Eg Clint Eastwood in the sphagetti westerns, or the bloke in the long leather coat in The Wire who made a living robbing the drug dealers. Think that's right anyway.

    Lease everything

    I bought a year 2000 Toyota Yaris in January 2007, for £3995. It's still going well, and has never broken down. If I'd leased a small car at, say, £120 a month instead, I would have paid out £17,000 in that time.

    Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    Too many pages to check back whether it has already been mentioned, but have read elsewhere that a few years ago, Kavanaugh's mother, then a county court judge, approved the foreclosure of a mortgaged property belonging to the Ford family. No ulterior motive there, then..

    Old Musicians who can still cut it

    Dave Brock is still fronting Hawkwind, at age 77. He looks a lot healthier than poor old Nik Turner, who is a year older.

    Celebrity Death Sweepstake 2018

    Peter Benson, who played garage owner Bernie Scripps in 'Heartbeat' has just died. Surprised that he was only 75.
