Fat, Drunk And Careless

26 February 2017 - 01:29

In todays "Blame and Claim" society a refreshing Judgment from the UK.

A Woman was suing the World Famous Ronnie Sotts Jazz Club for damages when she suffered a broken wrist and elbow falling down stairs stating "Insufficient Lighting" It's a Jazz Club FFS always have been dimly lit it adds to the ambience.

The claim was rejected when the (Female) Judge found that the claimant was "Fat, Drunk and Careless in her High Heels"  

Who needs Political Correctness, tell it as it is a Fat Drunk Cow who couldn't walk in heels, well done Judge   .... I bet she is a Jazz fan.

Tot Iptv

28 January 2017 - 11:54

CTH had been cut off when I got home this time so alternatives were required, I have had my fill with the alternatives charging 1200 THB + / Month for next to nothing.

So, I decided to give TOT IPTV a try, many options and can be used with any iSP even though I do use TOT. I chose to get the box outright for THB3,500 plus additional THB350 to make it totally unlocked.

I have access to all TOT IPTV Channels for THB390 per month, and the best part is if one does not renew subscription it can be dormant for months on end and once required again just pay the THB350 for another months service.

Suits me down to the ground, Coming Home just pay THB390 online and International TV available for 4 weeks, if I don't use / need it then no need to pay, I like the flexibility.

Not sure about other ISP's but since I use TOT I have the on demand service, programmes are available for 72 hours after initial broadcast, I realise this is normal for most of the world but in Bangkok at less than $12.50 / Month SWEET.

Japan's Hi-Tech Toilets To Get Standardised Symbols

18 January 2017 - 14:20

Japanese toilets are set to become easier to use, after manufacturers agreed to standardise the symbols on the control panels.
Japan's hi-tech toilets famously include features such as lid and seat controls, flush strength, front and back bidets, and air drying,
Different manufacturers all use their own pictograms for each function.
But the Japan Sanitary Equipment Industry Association says this confuses foreign tourists.
The organisation said (in Japanese) that it hoped its eight new pictograms would make things easier for non-Japanese speakers and create "a toilet environment that anyone can use with peace of mind".
Japan is attracting tourists in record numbers and authorities are focussed on making the country more welcoming for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
The association includes major domestic toilet giants, including Toshiba, Panasonic and Toto.
They will begin using the new symbols this year, the association said.

The Walter Mitty's

26 November 2016 - 03:11

Personally neither I and very few members of my family have seen active service but I do doff my cap to those who showed courage and valour whom did.

Walter Mitty's the characters who but Medals at auctions and then parade around on them will hopefully soon be a criminal offence and about time to.

Family members will still be able to show respect to deceased heroes by wearing said awards above the Right Breast Pocket where as only the awardees can wear above the Left Breast Pocket.

For one I fully support this Private Members Bill

Nicola Sturgeon Refuses To Accept Result Of England Vs Scotland Match

16 November 2016 - 01:23


Nicola Sturgeon believes the result of the England vs Scotland game yesterday was ‘wrong’ and will fight for it to be overturned.

The 3-0 defeat was the wrong result for Scotland, she said, and pledged to do everything in her power to reverse the scoreline no matter how long it takes.

Reports indicate she has already made a succession of calls to Senior UEFA and FIFA officials to seek their support in changing the outcome.

If she cannot get the result changed by conventional methods, Sturgeon confirmed she has not taken demanding a replay off the table.

“I don’t believe this result is in the best interest of Scotland, or of football, and it is clear that changing it would be entirely fair,” she told reporters at Holyrood.

“UEFA’s position that the result is binding just because we lost is short-termist and doesn’t serve the Scottish people in the way they deserve.”

Sturgeon went on to say she believed England had stolen literally dozens of goals that were rightfully Scottish, and she would organise a wide-ranging consultation and enquiry to examine all aspects of the result and report on how it can best be changed in Scotland’s favour.

Meanwhile, today’s copy of The National newspaper is reporting that Scotland won 18-0 before burning Wembley to the ground.
