See also cross tattoos and such like. A cross is a religious symbol and I know a few folk who have them that have absolutely no affinity to religion. A ridiculous fashion statement. Fannies.

Always wanted an upside down cross to get religious fanatics foaming at the mouth.

The athiest symbol is far less subtle and would get the point across quicker IMO.

Chicken Tikka Masala was allegedly invented in Glasgow and baltis in Birmingham so there are British curries.

Chinese, Indian and probably many other restaurants that specialise in a nations cuisine, don't normally serve like for like food that they would in their home countries, they modify it to suit the taste of the local population

Haggis was invented in France or Italy as I recall while tartan is Irish.  Bagpipes originally came from Africa.
Archaeology lives off people making spurious claims to accuracy attention and therefore funding. These sort of claims are generally headline grabbing nonsense.

Firstly, it is common for things to be invented by people in different locations independently of each other. Secondly, we can only really go by the earliest information we have managed to gather, which is highly unlikely to be complete. Thirdly, these proto-versions are rarely identifiable as what exists today. It's like when folk claim football was invented in China because 4000 years ago people kicked things for fun.

That said, if anyone has a competing claim which would allow us to disavow the invention of golf, I'm all for it.

I don't have many strong beliefs but that's certainly one of them. Might get booked in for that tattoo

Then try to scrape it off at the Pearly Gates.

They have bagpipes, black pudding and near enough haggis in Galicia in North West Spain. They also do deep fried pigs hairy earlobes which we were right not to steal too.

That's pretty cool, and slightly reminds me of Lovecraft for some reason, so I'm in.

That moment of realisation you've died with a short sleeve t-shirt on and there is an afterlife.

Getting involved in pavement dancing at any time, but especially at 10am, like the 2 boys* right outside Love's shop in Stenny this morning.

I say boys, but one was mid 30s, and the other late 50s, jeezo man.

Did you film it?

"Hahahahaha wouldn't it be good if *provincial club I support* signed Messi lolololol here's a bad photoshop, not sure he'd get a game ahead of *talentless lower league journeyman* though"

Painfully unfunny shite. Almost as bad as Antti Niemi jokes.

"Schellenberg has been detained in China since 2014, when he was accused of attempting to smuggle 225kg of methamphetamine to Australia. He has maintained his innocence. In December 2018 he was sentenced to 15 years but after he appealed a retrial was ordered and the Dalian intermediate people’s court instead ordered his execution."

Folk that sit in the car with the engine idling for no reason.

Exponentially so if they're somewhere nice where people are trying to enjoy the outdoors, like a car park in a scenic spot.

If you were that c**t in Callander tonight, I hope you crashed and died on the way home.

Ruins the dogging experience, eh?

The worst thing about this is dying with a reverse mohican
