Having recently spent over 6 hours including having to muck about editing the registry getting rid of one I agree totally :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

My anti virus caught it with a rootkit scan, but on checking it out it appears it might have been a false positive but I took no chance and it was secured/deleted.

Being London born and bred, it has always been walk down on the lefthand side of the escalator, and stand on the righthand side.

I find I get dizzy and discombooberated if I walk down, so I stand.



Wait, wait, wait, you people WALK on the escalator?! :o

I guess walking up/down the escalator never caught on over here in America, (surprise, surprise :roll: ), because you'd look pretty silly over here if you did that. It's pretty much just stand and hope the top doesn't eat your laces.

OK - so I knew what the speed limit was :oops: but it was on a bloody great hill out of a tight corner with poor visibility (which is why the 30 limit came in before the corner) and you had to gun it to get out of the side road I was on with enough revs to get up the hill. Bit embarassing really - I nearly knocked over the guy with the speed gun who jumped out at me from someone's drive just as I was easing off the revs... :shifty: :whistle:

I took my offence as a wake-up call. The circumstances couldn't have been worse. Had to drive 30 miles at 11pm on a bank Holiday to collect daughter and friend from a music festival near the Sage Gateshead. A few days before, the entire dashboard of my car had ceased to work......no display, no speedo.......and a) couldn't get it fixed due to BH b) couldn't afford to get it fixed (about a grand eventually :shock: ). Thought I could accurately guess my speed ( :naughty: ). Hatchback containing naughty teenagers saw me as a mug (correct) and tailgated me into the speed trap deliberately, laughing their dear little socks off when they caught me up at the next traffic lights.
I felt VERY badly done-by in the months up to the day I did the speed course but sitting there waiting with all the other criminals it dawned on me that whatever the circumstances I STILL DID THE CRIME and no one else was responsible.
Think that's called growing up innit? :whistle:

I ended up doing one of those speed awareness courses and I don't even have a car! :?

I had hired a van to help my friend move from Cardiff to Shropshire and got caught in a bit of the M4 that went from 70 to 50. :roll:

I even had to cycle to the place doing the course in torrential rain. :lol:

Sudden nostalgia attack. My mother used to say "discombooberated." It dates to about 1916, which is about right for it to be fairly current when she learned it.

Did she smoke a bowl now and again? :whistle: ;)
http://onlineslangdictionary.com/meaning-definition-of/discombooberated
discombooberated
adjective

*Completely out of adjustment, in a state of disarray or malfunction.

Whenever Windows gets totally discombooberated, you might as well just reboot the system and hope for the best.

*not in a normal state.

After finishing a six-pack and smoking a bowl, he was more than a little discombooberated.

The smoking a bowl-reference seems a 'tiny' bit too hip though... :mrgreen:

The unfortunate desire some dogs have to smell of 'eau de poisson mort' is a definite abomination unto Nuggan... :angry-cussingblack: :mrgreen:

I quite enjoyed the course (better than just coughing up the fine and getting points on the licence :oops: ) and there was another guy who got caught in the same trap around the same time - we whinged about the old speed limit being more realistic overall but conceded that the 'blind' corner did justify the 30 mph limit - I very rarely use that side road on the corner now unless I'm turning off the main road, so I don't get tempted with having to rev for the hill again.
I'm a stickler for staying under the maximum limit even on the A roads around our way now though - some of the locals get way too cocky with overtaking the tourists on the 'straights' for the Newquay road (the 'Atlantic Highway') and I often have to brake fairly sharply for oncoming boy/girl racers, because they're doing silly speeds trying to get past a caravan that's only just under the limit :roll:

Are you referring to drivers of Vauxhall Cavaliers, or cavalier drivers? :lol:

It has gotten worse there with the amount of people just pouring into London, stressed out people all rushing about, I glad I dont have commute there anymore, happy to be home but I still visit to see old friends.

I'm with Mrs. Wizzard, I thought the whole point of an escalator was that you didn't have to climb stairs. :lol:

Same here, Susanne, but many residents of London don't seem to agree. Personally, it makes me laugh to see them running to catch a tube train that has not even arrived. :lol:

Don't get me started on the subject of motorbikes.............and before Jools gets on his soapbox, I'd invite him to sit in my car and we'll drive up and down our Dale one Sunday afternoon. The antics of some bikers would take years off anyone's life expectancy....and some of them appear to be older than me :shock:
