I think you've misunderstood - I don't think die hard doonhamer was the surgeon, he was the patient

I know - but whenever I hear it mentioned I get flashbacks to that video of the laser blasting a trench in the eye, moving ever closer to the centre....

Similarly, my mum had a second job as an auxiliary nurse for a while, and did a couple of shifts in a private eye hospital. She came back with enough horror stories about contact lenses that I still recoil whenever the optician asks if I've ever considered switching to them.

Meeting up tomorrow with my best friend from primary school to play Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64

We used to have a mate that was shit hot at that game. We would play the split screen and he would just know exactly where you were and all the wee hiding places.

For me,  it was the burning smell which I assume was the eye tissue being burnt by the laser.   You can add that to your memory bank to complement the video you watched - enjoy!

The burning smell was very intense. However, it’s not your eyes, that’s just the smell of the laser firing.

Damn - that's spoiled a good war story!

Not sure if anyone has posted this before but if this video doesn't make you melt then frankly you're dead inside.

 

 

Any Pnb'ers ever kept a wild animal in the house just torment it?

This season, for the first time in about a decade, I couldn't afford a season ticket. Alright, this has been a shit season, but still.

Just discovered that I'm going to be about £150 a month better off from February, so I'll be back to watch us battle against relegation from League Two next season. Where are those Harry Redknapp gifs when you need them?

Managed to cop two Saturday night tickets to see Stewart Lee at the Lowry for his two new shows after it being sold out no hope for months. Superb stuff from him even if Stewart Lee has really let himself go.

Booked up for Aberdeen in June, hoping his act isn't stale by then.

Wouldn’t say he’s stale at all even if he’s visibly showing his age. Didn’t know he was deaf either.

His one bit of proper audience participation went wrong and he recovered really well and used it to tie in great. There are two bits on Dave Chapelle and Ricky Gervais that go on far too long though.

I was thinking of him telling the same jokes 3 nights a week until I see the act. Guess that's his job though, and he'll probably mix it up a bit. I've let myself go a fair bit under lockdown too so I won't judge him..:angel

Ah you’re alright he was already slagging off Salford for not laughing at the same bits as Oxford or “real Britain”. There was someone there who spoiled his audience participation by attending the aforementioned Oxford show. Maybe I can PM you the answer and you can be part of the act.

Got approached by a headhunting firm looking for a professor in a university in England. 

Can't do it as my kids are settled in school and the wife in her job, but it is nice to be thought of in that way. If a similar opportunity came up in central Scotland, I'd jump at it.
