    Option5 got a reaction from LC1 in Removing large plastic wall plugs from a wall   
    Put a fatter screw in and screw it in only until it grips the plug, then use pliers to pull both out using the screw head.

    It would be if they fed their kids exclusively on meat but that doesn't seem to happen. Vegans and vegetarians exclude certain food groups whereas most people only exclude things they don't like the taste of. Vegan and vegetarian diets are choices based on an ethical standpoint, the majority base their diet on how hungry they feel and what they feel like eating (unless poverty or environment dictates no choice)

    The last place I rented in the UK was really nice but overpriced and the letting agent was a complete tosser. I made an offer of what I was prepared to pay and how much deposit I was willing to pay.
    They told me to fuck off so I found the owner's name and sent them a letter to the flat working on the theory that the mail would be redirected.
    Three days later I got a call from the agent offering me the same terms I offered, next day I got a letter off my new landlady saying she'd never use the robbing bastards again

    I just change the barrels in the Yale locks when I move in and put theirs back in for appointments or when I move out. 10 minute job means they can't get in when I'm not there without leaving evidence or hiring a locksmith.
    One block I lived in changed the communal area locks and issued new keys, I signed for mine and didn't give one to the agents.

    Option5 got a reaction from Frank Hovis in The invasion is underway   
    I knew a woman who bought the passport of someone with a student visa who'd given up and gone home. For £400 she got the passport and NI number. (the student had worked part time). Worked hard, found a boyfriend etc. Got engaged, flew home as the student and applied for a marriage visa in her real name, got married, had a good job eventually got a British passport.
    She decided to confess to this to me when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She did say it's big business in a certain West African country.....

    Testarossa was OK unless you wanted to do anything ambitious, like stop, or go round corners.

    I just remembered this quote by Dennis Charles Pratt which seems apposite for this thread.
    "I now realize that education is a last wild effort on the part of the authorities to prevent an overdose of leisure from driving the world mad. Learning is no longer an improver; it is merely the most expensive time-filler the world has ever known."

    Quelle surprise.
    Another fuckwit who's done a nothing degree.
    Lives a comfortable lifestyle doing nothing of use thanks to others creating the wealth (mostly the White Patriarchy).
    Contributes nothing to society.
    In fact, just leaches off others.
    These deluded, useless cunts receive taxpayers' funding !
    There needs to be a bonfire of these charidees.
    They're just job creation schemes for useless fucks who can't get a real job.
