It's 'health month' at my work and they've just covered the office in reminders not to drink too much alcohol in a week.

 

What about the other 3 weeks?

Just to throw a spanner in the works, the Earth is rotating at a great speed. Up is what you are after a night on the ching, down is what you are, the day after. Don’t get me started on hookers cos it’s all up & down with them.

The fact that my Canadian wife asked me what orange men were last night and I was able to answer her annoyed me. Realising I have a working knowledge of Irish history and politics solely because I follow Scottish football really gets my nerves!

Thankfully your French wife, Brazilian wife and Japanese wife are not so annoying.

When I gave up on Kickback and moved to P&B I soon realised I’d need to at least read a history of Ireland if I was going to stay here.

Japanese maybe, but have you ever met French or Latino women??

I'd think Kickback was the prefect place to learn about UK/Irish history, or do they just hate Neil Lennon because of the way he played the game?

I haven't (yet) been able to find a definitive explanation but apparently in the early railway timetables "Up" trains travelled towards London, while "Down" trains travelled away. The majority of rail lines radiated from the capital  so you had to know which line to be on.

 

This is still the case today.

 

Edit- no idea how it quoted 3 times!

Today, I also learned that grammatically, you're supposed to say "up to" whenever referring to a town more populous than your own. Never heard that one before.

What about trains that run accross the country? Were there none in those days?

If travelling by train from Edinburgh you go through to Glasgow and vice versa.

Scottish fucking weather.  Decent all week, with a couple of cracking days and yet miserable on Saturday.  F*ck right off!

Roll on retirement so I can move to a country where the sun shines.

He can't wait to retire to a country "where the sun shines". A sentence previous this very country was decent all week with a few cracking days. 

I'm not sure moving abroad helps you decide the weather on set days tbh.

Do folk genuinely let a bit of rain dictate what they can and can't do?!

Hopefully he retires somewhere with no internet access.

Cricket and tennis authorities do.
