This is one of my favourite pieces of pedantry, having spent much of my childhood messing about on boats, and my love for it is not significantly diminished by the fact it turns out it's not really true.


Neither was me being in the Navy. I was just shagging a WREN.Tongue

Fatpete said:After fifteen months of ownership of my car I discovered that it has a tyre pressure gauge display hidden in the bowels of the aptly named entertainment screen. It's accurate too, but I have assured my Longacre lovely, my two and a half inch, glow in the dark, damped, complete with seventeen inch hose and alternate, rotating connexions, shimmeringly gorgeous "proper" gauge that it need have no fears, uncertainties or doubts. It is and always will remain my go to gauge of choice.


You sound like the sonar expert on the hunt for Red October. "So a $30m computer tells you that's a natural sound and you don't believe it?". He could handle the truth.Happy

EDCLARKE said:good work mate ! loving the union jack flag!


When I was in the navy it was pointed out that it can only be called a union jack if it's on a navy ship or frigatte or something, otherwise it's a union flag apparently. Still ace though.

96'' long 25'' wide
you can stand them up on their "head" 36'' x25'' x96''
or you can split them into 2 halves dead easy.
In ordinary times expect to pay at least 450 for a good used model.


Thanks JT. The splitting them looks like it would make it viable.

Had a look on fleabay and they're all 4 figures second hand, quite a bit dearer than new on the website (which is out of stock anyway).

Come on world. Get back to normal.

Jon how much space does a C2 take up? and do you reckon the price will plummet when the gyms open up and everyone's back in the pub and on xbox?

jt said:I have done lots of loading/spotting and reffing and know mistakes are possible BUT you have 3 refs 3 (at least)loaders and usually any mistake will be picked up before the lifter makes it onto the platform

You can bet your ass I would of checked and triple checked This weight!!!!!


Don't they have a 2nd panel of refs or jury as well?

I think the trouble with spotting PL comps is that it's f**king hateful and there's always a struggle to get good people to do it. They are literally dragging them off the street. I was asked to load at the Paralifting bench event run in Manchester earlier this year to which I said that I would load and reminded them of my WL background. Come the day the expectation is that I'll load, hand off and spot, world class lifters at a world class event on live stream. My stating that I haven't spotted a bench for 10 years falls on deaf ears. The competition went ahead and went well apparently, but without my assistance sadly. Whilst walked away I was scared for the loaders/ spotters who stayed (as they were on the whole a lot less experienced than me) and for the lifters who frankly deserved better. I couldn't help thinking that if they are asking me how desperate are they?

Chip shop, pie shop, now Chinese. Good lord, I have counted my blessings (and there was three) :-)


No Olympus yet I assume?

Our managers insist that cameras are switched on for that reason, in fact if someone does revert to their avatar the meeting is stopped and they are told to put their camera's back on before the meeting can progress.

I do like to have the odd meeting naked apart from a T-Shirt. Helps me remember that they only pay for what's above the desk. Also helps me disguise mid meeting furious masturbation for a bad case of athlete's foot, which can only be a positive thing.

Have Perkins said that you will be going back in at some point Pete? Many CEOs are openly stating that they have found themselves with unwanted real estate now have have realised that WFH is not only viable, but preferable.

How you doing Pete?

I'm an Audible subscriber now, and quite a heavy user. Listen in when I drive, cycle, run and walk. Anyway, there's a Sherlock Holmes collection narrated by Stephen Fry. Never been into Sherlock Holmes, but don't know why. Or Stephen Fry. However it is one of the highest rated audio books on there, and I've found these ratings to be quite accurate. I have enough Jack Reacher to hold off for a short while, but I can see me succumbing at some point this year. I imagine it will be like a posh wank, in that I consider it a bad idea up front, but quite enjoy the reality of it.

I can't suggest it now as you seem to have beaten me to it, should we offer it to all comers d'ya think ?


I merely suggested that if you did suggest it that I'd look forward to it, just like 2 eyed Williams. And I will. We just need Boris to give us a date now and hope that the Olympus survives the apocalypse in the meantime. Throw it out there for me. Be good to see some old faces.
