Even extremely good looking women need partners and what better way to find the man or woman of their dreams than to advertise themselves on a Football Forum , after all , it's where all the good looking men / women hang out .

What I'd like to know is - when an advert asking me if I'd like to meet an older woman in my area why does she look younger than me and why haven't I seen her out in my area before today ?

What's more harmful to an unborn baby, the mother smoking or drinking booze?

Depends on the booze and how much.

There's advise out there that half a glass of wine here and there does no harm at all. A bottle of vodka might be a different matter.

It matters what stage of development too.

How many mothers have got pregnant but not realised for several weeks and carried on drinking heavily? And how many of those children are born with disabilities as a result?

I'm always horrified by the number of pregnant mums outside the maternity ward, huffing on a gasper.

It's one if the reasons I enquired to be honest. I met a woman the other day that had 8 weeks left, and was smoking and yet explicitly stated she wouldn't touch a drop of booze.

Rather odd IMO.

My mum smoke and drank heavily whilst pregnant with me, yet my probation officer reckons I'm the nicest, 4' 10" asthmatic psychopath, he's ever worked with.

Its justification and lessens the guilt.
Being really good and giving up the booze justifies the reward for her of smoking.
Its quite bonkers but equally quite common.

Does poo act like expanding foam on contact with air or water ?
Because sometime I look down after a major outage and think where the hell did that all come from?

It's not so much how it got out, it's more how it was all stored before exiting.

My 2 year old dropped one the other day that was the size of my fist, and I wondered how the **** he had managed it. I'd have been proud to drop that myself.

Why are there road markings on the M25 for speed cameras but no speed cameras?

Because they have removed them all and replaced with average speed cameras?

It's cheaper to paint some lines on the road that fools people into thinking that there's speed cameras on the gantry and they slow down.

They can also move the cameras around to prevent people from memorising the locations.

Why do we bother with speed cameras on motorways, and not just have a decent resolution traffic camera on every gantry that can better detect people driving like arseholes and causing accidents?
