    Thanks for the welcome guys
    i can top the distance from the sea,i live in the harbour here and the apartments are pretty small but its nice getting up in the morning and sipping a coffee while watching the boats come and go!
    the wind howls through here though :(
    Surrey has some real nice parts to it,bloody pricey though

    Yep - we're not lacking in wind down here - not like Newcastle though. Now THAT'S cold!

    That sounds peaceful. I got 2 kids so no peace round here...

    Man, I should - I've never got the money. Paintballing would be epic though...

    You need a slogan:

    I dont know -- I have a sudden obsession with burning stuff. I mean, I used to do it alot back in high school but that phase kinda died out when i matured a little n started going to college but watching stuff burn is so satisfying!

    I remember when we had the bunsen burners out in the science lab -- we used to get some splints and stack them up or build them into a pyramid and set them alight, and it was fucking awesome!!!

    to think this sudden revival came about because of a few silly smoke grenades wouldnt ignite.

    Obviously I still have to keep myself under control and make sure that if i do want to set fire to stuff, not to do it inside the house!! or at least not infront of the mum

    When I was in detention at school, we used to do this:
    1. Take the "pokey" out of a clipper lighter.
    2. Unscrew the flint replacing bit until it comes out, then screw it back in slightly.
    3. Hold a flame under point a in the attachment until it sets alight and is dripping molten plastic.
    4. Move the flame to point b whilst aiming it at the the teacher's back.
    5. Try to cover your laughter as it sticks to your teacher's suit jacket.

    Tuesday....still no lighter (or the lighter fluid for the zippo for that matter) 2 out of 4 items have arrived, its just that zippo and the lighter fluid that still aint come, despite the lighter fluid being dispatched on friday.

    Royal Mail sure loves to take their sweet time. situations gonna get worse too now -- 1,700 staff are gonna get the boot and 2 big mail sort centres are closing down including the one i worked at for 3years. the expry date on the lease is coming up and I dont think they will renew it. Rumour has it the american embassy has been trying to get in on the property for a long time as its right by the river.

    If Royal Mail stopped damaging and losing letters/parcels while in transit, they would definitely get a lot more business.

    Yup :D I didn't even send the cables with it, so I'm putting them up in a FF thread quickly.
    Definitely a keeper I think...
