The missus asking me if an 8mm drill bit will be big enough to drill a hole for a 10mm rawl plug. :eh:

My 4 year old, in Sainsbury's, apparently asking the missus in a very loud voice "Mummy, why do some girls have big boobies and some girls have small boobies?"

A woman has suffered chemical injuries after she was mistakenly prescribed erectile dysfunction cream for a dry eye condition.

The woman, from Glasgow, had to be treated at A&E after she was given Vitaros cream instead of the eye lubricant VitA-POS

On the plus side I bet she looks hard as fxxx

Didn't know whether to put this in the "smile" thread..........or the irritate/anger thread.

It's another doggy one.

A dog that I can't believe is actually alive. I've never seen a dog who is alive but looks so dead.

Hard to watch for dog/animal lover so beware if things upset you easily.

Genius.
Contrast this with my usual ploy of "put it somewhere safe" and - years later - you can't ******* find it.

I can't remember where I learned about doing stuff like that, but I haven't looked back since I started. Whenever I buy new electronics or computers or whatever, I always put the receipt in a freezer bag & sellotape it to the back or bottom of the appliance knowing full well it'll get lost otherwise. Same goes for spare parts as well, I'll do everything I can to make sure they're stored together (physically attached, where possible), otherwise, they might as well just go straight in the bin.

The amount of vegetarian and vegan options available in sainsburys, well worth a look for those that are interested.

Bang on mate! I went to Sainsbury's for a beer run and was amazed what they have there, so I bought loads of vegan food AND beer/wine.. BTW check out Iceland! Seriously, their NO Bull range is excellent!

A local pound-type shop selling long, narrow, 180g 'bars' of white, milk or fruit & nut chocolate, with almonds & honey nougat, called 'Twin Peaks'. Also says on the packaging, 'Inspired by the Wrekin & Ercall hills'..
So, not inspired at all by Toblerone then...
