EDCLARKE said:motorbike trip?


Possibly Ed, depending on numbers. It's a trip for Jeff's birthday, and the chance to catch up with our French connection Johnathon 'Mishima' Chevalier in his home town.Will probably be via the ferry from Portsmouth. At least a car and if need be bikes as well. Taking in the culture, meals, vino and a good catch up. Be nice to get to Omaha and Bayeux at least while we're there.

I haven't planned them yet, but I'd like to do Lands End and John o groats probably as separate weekends if you fancy. Be having a good luck around the areas while I'm there too. I'll keep you posted if you fancy.

Is there a suitable train station nearby?


There is a train station in Caen from the ferry terminal. I considered all eventualities despite it appearing like I plucked this location from a random pot.

There is also the Gymnasium Haie Vigné nearby which may or may not be populated with Russian gymnasts.

Potential women at the ferry terminal will be approached with great caution.

'Caen Serial Killer' does not return any results, I assume because he hasn't been caught yet.

It's a kind offer but I have to decline, as basically, in my eyes it is but a delivery charge


How much would you pay to have a reduced priced timepiece hand delivered?

Who knows best if it’s tackyless?
Who says No when the refs say Yes?
Naked chest or a muscle vest,
Never clean with a tacky mess.

Is it fair with a tacky towel?
Or f**k the rules and use a tacky trowel
It leaves you bald and loosens up your bowel
And does what it can to make you howl

Our views are ours for us to convey
Those ladies know the games they play
It doesn’t matter what we say
That tackied gal just won 5k

That is very sound advice for anyone bar me. I really don't like to travel, can you really get a weekend in NY for £500 ? That seems remarkably good value.


Fri 7th Sept - Mon 10th Sept £365 return with Virgin Atlantic. Digs and Food on top. Cheap as chips. I'll escort you and even pay for myself, not like that tight arse Lohan fella.

Sometimes the watch isn't as important as the history and adventure behind it. Just ask Butch.Happy

You should write a book about your life in lifting and the people you've met.


Too many legal ramifications to do it honestly, and to do it any other way is pointless. Better I keep it vague to protect the innocent Wink

maybe.. but there's 2 ways to 'visit Latvia'.


I used to train with a guy from Latvia who was quite a nice bloke but came from a tragic background. When he was about 3-4 his father fell foul of the local mob boss which resulted in him being deposited in portions in the family bin. Whilst the mother took said young son and fled to the Manchester burbs for safety straight after, the young man struggled to let it go and openly admitted that all his training was to enable him to return and let vendetta run it's course. Hopefully he was able to move on, but I doubt it. Life eh? Unhappy

What you think of Herbert Jr's Dune books? Thought the prequels were enjoyable, but preludes not great. Him doing the final book wasn't to hot either. I shan't be reading it again and I read the Dune series from prequels onwards every couple of years


Pretty much the same if I'm honest, and I'm remembering them (it's been a while). The preludes seemed a bit dull with the odd lightbulb moment, but I think they played heavily on my emotional attachments to great characters set up in the original trilogy. The prequels were all out taking advantage of the fact that writers can get away with a lot more nowadays that would have been offensive in Franks time. The relationship between Erasmus and Serena Butler was evil and in parts leading up to the Butlarian Jihad were very near to the knuckle. I thought the lead up with the titans and cymeks was good background too.
God knows how I remember this stuff after reading it once, but need my phone to tell me what I'm doing on any particular date Unhappy

Have you see the david lynch adaptation of that? 1984 flopped at the box office got panned but I think it's good, although I am a fan of lynch in general.


This may be of interest
https://movieweb.com/movie/dune-2019/

It is to me, and may be to you also.

There's a mini series with James McAvoy as Leto II which is worth a look too if you haven't already. I'm a bit of a Duney TBH, and hopeful that one of these things will be good enough that they carry on past God Emperor and into Heretics. That's where the religion, sex and drugs really kick off IMO. Orgasmic amplification sounds a hoot.
I think that the effects are available now to make Franks vision happen.

Typical. We have a mature and sensible scientific discussion and someone always brings religion into it.

Whilst I can't deny your logic I'd worry that they were in cahoots just to get my $$$'s, and both stuck to their own made up version of the truth. Not sure which ethnic origin has the cynical gene, but I suspect I have some of them.

Fatpete said:I really could not care less.

This really. Whilst it might be ace to be a Khan or a Ming, it's just as ace to be anyway, regardless.
I wonder what the accuracy is ?

I sometimes ponder this too, and how you would ever check (I'm assuming that there is no ombudsman, an Ancestbudsman if you will). Then I revert to the first point and move on.

More important to look forward, and in 2018 this is the s**t that counts https://tasteface.marmite.co.uk/
