  1. Best I have been able to do so far is the Teuchter audio commentary on the ICT twitter page.
  2. (To be fair at the time I thought this was quite splendid!)
  3. Was that Hampden's last hurrah?

    Solid point. I'd really like to see us follow Iceland's model, ideally with facilities distributed around the country and not just in the central belt.
  4. Wummin's Fitba'

    I really like watching birds' sports. Obviously the strength and talent isn't the same but it doesn't need to be. They get right stuck in and it can still be a very entertaining spectacle to watch. I don't have a daughter (yet) but if i do I'll be chuffed to bits watching her play, and I'm glad there are women out there trying to be better role models than Cheryl Cole and the like. Can't really understand the antagonism they get from some quarters. What harm does it do?
  5. Couldn't agree more. I'll be disgusted if they don't come flying out the traps tomorrow.
  6. Was that Hampden's last hurrah?

    I love Hampden to bits. It's the spiritual home of Scottish football for me.
  7. Lithuania away

    Geographical location limits me to about one away game a year, so I rarely have enough points to qualify for away game tickets through the Supporters' Club. As a result I almost always have to figure out home end solutions. Never had any bother so far. In fact the only bother I have been caught up in was in Italy and that was between factions of their own fans - they left me well alone.
  8. Depression

    This is timely for me. Mid 30s and trying to get my head around the ups and downs of married life and buying a house. Renting seems to be the better fit for me at the moment. You could lament the opportunities lost being conservative in your youth but if you have your health it's never too late. The world is still your oyster.
  9. Do you have a degree?

    Undergrad (Edinburgh) and PhD (St Andrews) in physics. Best thing I ever did. Opened up all kinds of doors and now I have a job I love in California. Higher education is not for everyone, and I strongly support emphasis on vocational and STEM subjects. The Scottish education system worked extremely well for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
  10. The Witcher 3

    Nope. The two DLCs are absolutely huge (and solid). You have plenty left to go yet!
  11. Depression

    This kind of thing works for me (at least I think it's working). Firstly it's free and (barring the weather) it can usually be fit into any reasonable schedule. DA, you didn't mention anything about your diet. If you are eating on the cheap to save money it's possible you may not be eating well. The Scottish way. I've found eating healthier in addition to the aforementioned exercise made me feel a lot better about myself intrinsically. I also like the advice from welshbairn: manageable changes, in sequence to start with rather than a total overhaul all at once. Good luck!
  12. Teacher meltdowns

    Primary 6 and 7, circa 1990. Nairn. Our teacher was a Yank with an incredible temper. Flying chairs all over the shop. Screaming tantrums, she would often end up lying on the floor screeching, banging the carpet with her fists and kicking. Unbelievable in retrospect, although I thought it was mighty entertainment at the time (I was one of the swots so rarely in the line of fire). Strangely, she kept her job and over the years since I am told has matured into a very good teacher. Amazing foresight by the headmaster. Doubt she'd get away with that now.
  13. Festivals 2016

    Currently enjoying Hebceltfest in Stornoway. Lovely wee festival. Very relaxed.
  14. Copa America 2016

    Due to work i haven't been able to watch all the games in either tournament but so far have enjoyed this one more than the Euros. Despite the fact that Argentina have been running away with it there have been some enjoyable upsets.
  15. School

    Have never missed it for a second. Couldn't wait to get to uni and the big city and have never looked back. School was shite.
