Empty bank balances following too many unforseen expenses are also an abomination unto Nuggan :twisted:

Coasters that stick to the bottom of your tea mug are an Abomination unto Nuggan. Twice over when they drop off into the coal bucket :twisted:

And dunked biscuits that break off and fall into your cuppa are also an abomination unto Nuggan. :twisted:

I seem to recall that in this country it is technically against the law to stand still on the pavement... Apparently the pavement is for walking along...


Having just spent some time trying to find a reliable reference to back this up (I really mustget a life!) I am led to the conclusion this might be an OWT (Old Wives Tale)

I find that it's usually forrin students, exercising their European Human Right to block the pavement.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Not when I'm around bouncy, I literally walk along the pavement in front of the school with my arms outstretched repeatedly saying move, until they have all dispersed.

I think in Spain it may well be a law that the elderly must find the narrowest section of pavement, ie the point at which there is a bin and a lamppost, and then use that section to stop for a chat, each with a small yappy dog with disproportionately long lead!

People who pile on so much cologne/perfume that it forms a trailing, choking cloud in their path are an Abomination Unto Nuggan.
