Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

Have a couple of questions..

Firstly, do clubs in the SFL pay for there match balls, or are they supplied by the SFL?

And secondly, has anyone been to Linlithgows Prestonfield park lately? Whats the surface like?

These days they're supplied by the SFL, each club gets 30 at the start of the season and are supposed to start each match with a brand new ball.

Clubs can buy extra ones at a discount to the retail price, not sure of the exact price but it's nowhere near the £85 that's been quoted (or £250 on the Alloa/Clyde thread!).

There's a story told about Third Lanark when they were in their last days and they couldn't afford to buy a new ball for each game, they had one decent ball that they gave to the ref to kick off the game with, but the Third Lanark players were under instruction to whack the ball out of the ground at the first opportunity, an old ball would then be thrown on and the decent ball would be retreived and stored away, ready to use at the next game!

Just found out that my flight from Reykjavik to Glasgow next week has a 'service stop' at Manchester of all places – aye, let’s fly from Iceland to Glasgow but fly past Glasgow to get to Manchester and then take them all back to Glasgow??? :blink:

Can anyone shed some light on this crazy world? What's worse is one guy I'm travelling with actually wants to go to Manchester that night once we get back and was planning on getting a train down to Manchester from Glasgow, even though we'll be stopping there earlier that day. Don't imagine they'll let him off and set up a passport immigrations desk just for him.

Where can I get my hair cut in Stirling city centre?

Come round to mine, I'll do it for a fiver...

I can't actually recommend anywhere, but there's a barbers at Causewayhead, and another across the road from Union Street, although I'm not actually sure it's open. I also think the one on the big roundabout at Tesco does men's haircuts, although it's a bit "salon-y" and might be pricey.

This is largely unhelpful.

Because they're reliable as hell, probably.

I noticed a local firm in my area has just got 3 brand new cars of the above.

It's just something that I noticed recently on a boring drive to work. Now every taxi I notice seems to be a Skoda Octavia.

Is it because they are roomy?

Do Skoda do a special deal for taxi firms?

Isn't the poster 'ayrmad' a taxi driver? Maybe he will see this and put my tortured mind out of it's misery.

:lol:

I did know there was one at Causewayhead, I just can't be arsed walking along to it. Plus I quite fancy a Greggs so want an excuse to go into town. I'd ruled out the ones at Tesco and Union Street for the reasons you mention.

Anyone else know of any others?

Edit - apparently there's one not far away from Fubar on Barnton Street. It better be open...

Why does it cost £95,000 for someone to design a logo for the Glasgow Commonwealth games? :huh:

Also noticed the London 'Lisa Simpson Giving Head' Olympics logo cost £400,000 too. What do the designers do that could possibly cost that amount?

The Icelandair flight, just does a "circular" route. i.e. the plane does REK=>MAN=>GLA=>REK.

I'd imagine that the majority of the passengers on the Reykjavik => Manchester flight which goes on to Glasgow, will have Manchester as their final destination.

Wages, mostly. I imagine that the design firms who get handed these projects are paying their designers a fair whack, and they'll be sticking a profit mark-up onto those, too.

It is indeed the Icelandair one - so there's a good chance he can just get off at Manchester even though he's got a ticket for Glasgow? Assuming so, sweet :)

Cheers.

I feel like a right tool asking a question as stupid as this, but oh well.

How would you go about returning a pair of shoes to a website? Basically, I ordered size 10 Nike Mercurials and they sent me a childs size 10 unsure.gif.

Phoned them up, said send them back to us with a covering letter and it'll get sorted. But would you get another box and put the original shoebox inside? Or stick the letter inside the shoebox and sellotape f**k out of it?

Suppose he could ask the air company to change it to manchester when he checks it in, incurring a massive debt in fees knowing most air companies these days even though all it takes is someone to stick a manchester sticker on it instead.

Get some brown paper and wrap the original box in that

I would recommend a place on Friar's Street - just across from Jimmy Chungs.

I don't know but there is a topic about it here:
