  1. I stubbed my toe the other morning from kicking the wall whilst dreaming I was playing football.
  2. It's just a male name, more common in the north and Kosovo. In Georgia it's a female name.
  3. Or as Dire Straits once sang, money for Rudden and Fitzpatrick's free.
  4. In 100 years' time there will be a post on this thread telling people that "The term sliding doors is actually a reference to an obscure 20th century film starring John Hannah".
  5. Not as weird as people called Campbell doing it: "Campbell with a p", as if there's another way of spelling Campbell.
  6. Indeed. I think for flies it's something like 10x slower. For Chic Charnley it was only 2x but enough to compensate for his lack of maneuverability.
  7. I remember that cup game versus Ayr. Mukendi was perhaps the only thing stopping Mark Kerr being our worst player that day.
  8. Probably being a bit dim but I can only think of Leith Athletic FC.
  9. Well I have also stayed at a Nazi guesthouse in Georgia, so there does seem to be a pattern developing. I'll need to find out how one goes about pledging.
  10. Time to start the Russian invasion of Albania thread, methinks.
  11. Disgusting, not even minimum wage. Pretty sure Gabriel Piccolo was Barcelona U19 captain or something. Don't think he played professionally again after leaving us.
  12. Calling us Plastic shows you clearly do. I'm happy to admit that I'd have Morton relegated over almost anyone else in the division.
  13. I'm with you on that, but you can't expect to join an alliance when you're arming people fighting your would-be allies.
  14. I don't think Turkey's main demands were controversial at all.
  15. There's also Pane in the Glass glaziers in Aviemore and Bacchialdi's in Airdrie, or more specifically... I can't vouch for the veracity of this, but was told today by someone who works for a Gaza Strip NGO that Christiano Ronaldo has given their cause eight figures over the years and asked to remain anonymous.
  16. I'm pretty much due a mid-life crisis (I had one years ago in Possil but have since moved somewhere with greater life expectancy). The sports car is it out of my reach and the 21 year olds can probably only happen if the crisis goes full term and I pay for them. Think I'll default into Cowan territory and make an appointment at the optometrist in the morning.
  17. Bespoke was a perfectly fine word for centuries, then a decade or so ago people started abusing it. One of the reasons I'm not in the "I can never be wrong because language evolves" camp.
  18. Didn't realise St Johnstone took Rangers' place in the Old Firm when they died.
  19. I met an American today who pronounced Thames "Theymz". To be fair the English did add the "h" to be pretentious and like the Greeks so in hindsight I may be all for it.
  20. I've no problem with English being ignorant of Scottish football I don't know who their champions are either. When you're broadcasting to a country covered by for different football associations then your commentary should reflect that. I find Germans to have excellent football knowledge, as do random Balkan folk who are big into betting. I met one twenty year old German tourist last month who said "Ah, Partick Thistle, yes you lost to Inverness in the playoff didn't you?". He was a Bayern Munich fan as well, so it wasn't exactly in diddy solidarity either.
  21. Why not? It's not exactly the poor countries who are looking at UBI.
  22. These trends to be the sort of folk who pack their bags a week before they go on holiday as well. Leaving it until the security queue is bizarre when you do everything else unnecessarily in advance. When you get home from holiday just put the liquids bag in a drawer and chuck it in your bag as you head out on the next trip.
  23. Tirana really is getting better every year. I was at the last game at the old stadium, glad they've incorporated a small part of it into the new one.
