Makes it easier to dump the bodies of their victims.

mainly curtain sided lorries do this as any would be thiefs can see that the lorry is empty
if the door is shut then anyone interested in the contents would slice the lorry curtain and have a peak inside
resulting in multiple slices in the curtains and it needing repairing at a cost to the driver

Why do you have to sign in to view Music, Film and TV and NUMB but not to see the Snug, GD or Sports Bar?

I almost don't want to know, such is the length of time I've wondered this.

Not hard to answer. I've got several Anderson shelters in me back garden and they fit in nicely between me pansies and begonias. I like to sit in one at night and listen to Vera Lynn while my wife chucks rocks on the roof.

Na, it's weird. - to be fair, I'm using Chrome, it does have a few little glitches similar so could be my end.

He's a question.

Whenever I fart it bloody well stinks. And I don't mean the usual *you fart it smells* kind of way, I mean almost every time I let rip it is proper clear the room kicking up. No matter what I've eaten - exactly the same food as the missus sometimes and yet hers smells like rose petals blowing in the wind by comparison.

What's the deal with that?

Most likely your gut isn't able to process and absorb foods, especially carbohydrates, as efficiently as hers. As a result the food hangs around for longer and, essentially, ferments in your gut.

In a nutshell, you're a jessy and she's nails. Back out now, before it's too late.

I'm on my hols, and yesterday went for a swim in the crystal clear med. I saw some big fishy **** fish thing swimming around a little way below me. It was probably just a stickleback or something, but I karked my speedos anyway and doggy paddled back to shore as fast as my stumpy little legs would go.

Got me thinking that I'd never seen a sea monster like that (apart from your mum) in the water at Brighton, but maybe that's because the water there is like swimming in bowl of Baileys. You really can't see your hand in front of your face.

So how do the fish see?

on this,

dolphins come up for air? does this mean they cant actually breathe underwater and can hold their breathe for extremely long lengths of time, or are they able to breathe in water and on land?
