What a silly question to ask a forum full of work shy alkys.

Morrison’s own brand Hot Horseradish (not the Creamed version). Napalm to the sinuses. 

Thank you, sir - will try.

Not far along the road  from Five Sisters zoo in West Lothian today I saw 5 huge hills of unnaturally pointed shape. Not perfect pyramids like the ones at Livingston, but definitely too large and sharp to be natural. What are they? My best guess was old slag heaps long since grown over, but it's purely a guess.

They are the 5 sisters, and are indeed bings from the mines

Is that where the zoo gets the name from? I assumed it was something to do with the family that own it or something! Feeling a might daft now. I only assumed slag heaps as on the sides of them you can see from the road dark coloured stone where the foliage has slid away.

We used to go up the bings on our bikes as kids (various ones around West Fife). It was good fun as they were like low-rent volcanoes with steam and smoke coming out in places.  It was only years after that I read about how they didn’t want folk going on them due to the risk of collapsing into a fiery pit of hell.

A few of them are now nature walks etc (35 years later, having cooled down a bit).

Does anyone know if its possible to get Radio Scotland MW frm that stupid bint Alexa?  If so, what to say to her?

I think you can only listen to what is live on the Sounds app. If MW is broadcasting something different I don't think you can

Discarded cooked shale, the remnants of Scotland's original oil industry.

You may have inspired a new slogan for the road signs though:  Welcome to West Lothian: lots of slag heaps and heaps of slags.

They must be stable. If anyone was going to fall in it'd be you.

I think the locals prefer to call it 'Cowdenbeath'.

No idea the most appropriate thread for this so I’ll go with a generic one. Does anybody suffer from bloating? I feel like I’m fairly bloated a lot of the time, and wondered if anyone has taken supplements to reduce bloating and if they had any effect?

West Calder United's old park felt like the things were going to engulf it if enough rain fell.
