  1. Referring to the complex ‘eco-system’ found in old mattresses, Ian Burgess of Insect Research and Development Ltd says: “People could be sleeping with all sorts of creatures. Quite a zoo and botany could be living there: in the middle will be moisture from human sweat and possibly even urine. Combine these moist conditions with warm temperatures and you are likely to find some moulds – and around the edge where there will be welted seams you might find the eggs of bed bugs.”
  2. I really love playing chess with elderly people in the park. It's just really hard trying to find thirty two of them willing to do it.
  3. A male whale and a female whale were swimming off the coast of Japan when they noticed a whaling ship. The male whale recognised it as the same ship that had harpooned his father many years earlier. He said to the female whale, "Lets both swim under the ship and blow out of our air holes at the same time and it should cause the ship to turn over and sink." They tried it and, sure enough, the ship turned over and quickly sank. Soon however, the whales realised the sailors had jumped overboard and were swimming to the safety of shore. The male was enraged that they were going to get away and told the female, "Let's swim after them and gobble them up before they reach the shore." At this point, he realised the female was becoming reluctant to follow him. "Look," she said, "I went along with the blow job, but I absolutely refuse to swallow the seamen."
  4. Hey dad, why is my sister called Teresa? Well, it's because your mum loves Easter and Teresa is an anagram of Easter! Thanks dad! No problem Alan
  5. I've been diagnosed with a certain type of amnesia where I deny the existence of certain 80's bands. There is no cure...
  6. "I'm going to see a specialist doctor in the East End about my skin complaint." "Hackney?" "No, it's a form of thrush." "Shoreditch?" "It really does."
  7. 'The Expanse' - A wonderful sci-fi series which is claimed to be 'Battlestar Galactica meets Game of Thrones'. It's reaching the end of Season Two now and Season One is currently on Netflix. Synopsis here: http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/the-expanse-the-best-sci-fi-tv-show-youre-not-watching-w474075
  8. I've probably missed any update but shouldn't you have the car by now? A colleague recently picked up an M240i which he loves but treats with great respect in the wet...
  9. You can spec the car with with Bridgestone run flats or Michelin Super Pilot Sports. I think I know which ones you'll be going for!
  10. That's a very good deal on the lease! I was paying £399 a month when I had my M135i a few years ago (auto with pro-Nav but that was about it). Be careful in the wet! That back end can snap out with VERY little warning...
  11. Game over man... Game over!!
  12. Quite nice. I also like 'Mid Century' furniture. Our 'Fancy Nancy' sofa from Sofa Workshop is getting old so we're looking at getting a new one. I've seen a few G-Plan ones which are tempting: http://www.gplanvintage.co.uk/ Heal's also have a nice selection: https://www.heals.com/sofas/4-seater-sofa.html
  13. Rick and Morty. An absolutely insane and madcap cartoon (about a 14 year old boy and his genius sociopathic grandfather)!
  14. I think Sony make some fantastic speakers. My cousin has a pair of these SA-S1 active speakers and they sound fantastic:
  15. Mother in law had a couple of basset hounds. Loyal and affectionate but rather labour intensive pets due to, as mentioned above, body shape etc. Massive appetites too.

    Watches

    Hi Bencat, It's either the ETA or Sellita movement. I was told they had a faulty batch arrive before Christmas which had to be returned to Switzerland. Then another six arrived which went to others before me on the waiting list. I was going to wait for the new logo version (the logo is simply 'Christopher Ward' in a similar font to this text and to the left of the face which strikes me as both uninmaginative and unbalanced), but luckily some more arrived with the old logo. At 43mm they are at the absolute max of what I would wear but the stealthy design doesn't make it so obvious, especially on my puny 6.7 inch wrist.

    My Trident Titanium finally arrived nearly three months after ordering it! Actually, it's a very smart and stealthy watch so it's a keeper.
  19. I went to see a chiropractor for several sessions then decided it was a waste of time (when I didn't feel any real improvement). My back pain disappeared at about the same time I changed my car...
