Actually, I'd be quite pleased if he saw off those f*cking pigeons that keep sh*tting on my BBQ patio.

Poor little pussy cats. There they are, stealthily going about their business, finding it strange that ever since that pesky human hung that shiny thing round their neck, they've not been nearly as successful, at little bird massacring.
Actually, far from blaming furry monsters, perhaps the bigger culprits are b*stard magpies (or any in the crow family), who like to happily feast on baby songbirds, all the while, making their horrid, clacking sound.
Stangely enough, despite enjoying that behaviour, they get rather upset, if a cat manages to eat their own young. The hypocrisy!
And pigeons are Satan's messengers; no good to man nor beast, except perhaps, fast food takeaways, when the supply chains gone down...

What's with that?

Have you changed your shampoo lately? Do you wash your face with soap/shower gel?

Maybe that's the problem?

You should try to use tissue or other means of catching your love syrup when knocking one out?

Does anyone know if copper bracelets actually help with arthritis?

The internet says no but I was just wondering if anyone has any experience?

Thanks in advance!

Why is swinging a pick-axe so ****ing knackering? I like to think I'm a pretty fit bloke but, 15/20 minutes or so of swinging axes/pick-axes and I'm absolutely ****ed.

There must be some sort of ****-off circular saw on a cart job like they have for cutting concrete that would make mincemeat of tree roots .....

I remember when I was a kid, about 8 or 9, one of my cousins came over from New Zealand and he had the same thing on his eyes (he was the same age as me). The Turkish kids up the road from me who I used to knock about with saw him and just plain asked "what the **** is wrong with your eyes" and he told them and for the life of me I can't remember. Weird looking though.

They have, it's called an angle grinder.

Honda

Why do their cars have "H" as its emblem. But their motorcycles have "wings"?

"H" stands for Hermes?

Honda’s first logo was inspired by the Roman god of Victory (Greek god - Nike) which had wings and the first logo actually had this god depicted on it. This is where the wings appeared from and remain to this day in various forms, for their motorcycle manufacturing branch.
The car branch of Honda came decades later and adopted a different logo to distinguish itself from the motorcycle manufacturing branch.

When painting a a garden fence, are you just responsible for the side that looks onto your garden? or both sides?

Better than the above, there's a tree that straddles the boundary between me and my rear neighbour. It seems to grow out of their side, but from about 2ft up is entirely in my side.

If I chop it down and the bint over the back gives it biggun, can I just tell her to foxtrot oscar with no comeuppance?

^^^ As long as its not got a Tree Preservation Order on it, then you're free to chop whatever's on your side. Even better to really annoy her is that you can also chuck everything you've hacked off back over the fence as legally it belongs to her!

Only your side.
Mind you, if the posts (if any) are on their side, then technically it's their fence & I wonder if you'd have the right, to paint any of it?

Heard the other week that the average cost to complete this years Panini? World Cup sticker album is estimated to be £700. Not sure a completed album would ever be worth that. Just taking advantage of the 'human collecting bug'.
That's the average cost; it could cost you more if you were unlucky. Obvs if you didn't get any doubles, it would cost less.
