A few hours after speaking to a rep friend of mine in the shop today I got a call from someone sounding suspiciously like Terry Tibbs. My rep friend was telling how two or three shops had been phoned recently by someone sounding just like him and giving them the runaround. My caller stopped short when I said "So Mr... 11 Jul 2010 12:43

Background checks and further information: advice, please
Anybody know of any legal ways to obtain information about a 3rd party, such as criminal offences, tax evasion, business interests, etc. without needing to inform the person concerned? Can't discuss why, at present, other than a group of ordinary people are about to get mightily fucked over. Any not so legal w... 12 Jul 2010 07:28
> Problem is, I don't think I'm going to win any competitions with this Kodak CX7330 - brilliant snapper that it may be. I used the Canon SLRs 300D, 1000D and currently the 500D and I'd recommend any of them.

Paging the Fishermen
Don't ask why, I'm not sure why, but I've bought a pole and rig to go fishing with the kids. Fucked though if I have a real clue about fishing other than when I were a kid we'd stick a worm on a hook and sit by a bank. Just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a numpty beginners guide either ... 6 Jul 2010 18:59
What a day...
So, those that have been paying attention will know that Andy's latest stupidity is a proposed desert rally. I'm rather proud that in his search for the stupid and easily led I was high on the list. However I'm not quite stupid enough to do it with little recent off road experience (excluding flying into trees... 9 Jul 2010 16:10
