Today i learnt that lemon juice doesnt highlight your hair, it just gets wasps(it was on the blurb of a book i picked up at periplus)

I also learnt that i'm the only person who actually thinks im a bumptious tit.

If it'll make you feel anybetter Ponder, I think you're a bumptious twit.

The post when I mentioned you and bumptious tit last time, I was being sarcastic. :lol:

So? Tits are lovely and sweet! Blue tits, Coal tits, Crested Tits, Long Tailed Tits etc,etc...

A bumptious tit - you've just found a new species that's all! :lol:

I learnt not to click links to other threads before reading unread posts as it unmarks all the other unread threads and I have to search through everything. :P

I learnt today that going for a walk is a great idea but ending up at a supermarket and buying loads of goodies and forgetting you have to carry them all home isn't. :cry:

A very knackered Morty. :lol:

It does on my computer. I click the link to the thread, close that screen when I've read the link to go back to the original screen, and find all the posts marked as unread now show as being read. :? :?: :?: :?:(I guess I must be doin' summat wrong!)

Don't close the original screen down - it thinks you've finished the session and started another one on the new one :wink:

Penfold. Are you hitting the X to close the screen, or the < back button?

Try hitting the < back button (top left of the screen). .. and keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks Batty. That's exactly what I've been doin'. :roll: I'm going to try the < back button next time. I think that will do the trick.

Well the < button doesn't work either. It's really quite bizarre because if I click on a link to a site away from the forum (You Tube, for example) everything is perfectly normal when I close that screen to return to the thread. It seems to only clear my unread posts as read when I click on a link to another thread within this forum. Its not a matter of life and death, neither is it particularly irritating. Image :wink: It is bloody puzzling tho! Image

Morty: I found it cheaper to just lease the chopper after learning how to forge Poohs signature :twisted:, so we've still got it. I've been busy ferrying bananananas from the plantation to the Toot Thread and I can honestly say I'm getting fed up with bloody banananas! :wink:
