  1. I used to get mine trapped in my shoe laces, just saying.
  2. I remember the old tackle shop was a dark, dusty, skanky place, and my god did it stink of maggots. They had the old beer glasses that they'ed use to measure out the maggots.
  3. The thing that has stuck in my mind is how my brothers and I panicked after he swallowed them, we thought they would start to eat him from the inside out and rushed back to tell mum.
  4. I remember as kids my brother putting maggots in his mouth to warm them up and make them wriggle. We jumped him and poked and tickled him to make him swallow them. He only did it the once.
  5. Geez' I long for the days when Ozzy Osbourne could eat a bat without worrying about coronaviruses.
  6. Phew, i'm glad someone else thought that, I thought it was just me.
  7. That made me laugh I'm so going to hell.
  8. I may have the odd moment of being a tad mischievous.
  9. Just to clarify - I have as much disgust for the far right as I have disdain for the extreme left. I see myself as a centrist, with one foot in the left. I believe in compassion for others, equality, fairness, empathy and justice. I have no time for extremists whether in religion or politics, they try and impose their views and agendas with no consideration or respect for others ideals. My own values and opinions have developed over 49yrs of learning and experience, I haven't just plucked them out of thin air. I don't expect others to agree with me 100% all of the time, that would be ridiculous, but only I have lived MY life. *My views and opinions are not set in stone. I live, I learn, I experience as my life goes on. My thoughts and ideals evolve. (I'm not as ancient as Chesters )
  10. Did anyone else watch the program on Channel 4 the other evening "The Country That Beat the Virus"? It would seem that the government haven't done a stellar job. But who does one blame, do you blame Boris, or do you blame the scientists who are advising him? Granted it was Channel 4, so one expects a left wing slant to it, but worth a watch on catchup tv if you get the chance.
  11. Neuroticism - Me, i'm pained to admit.
  12. Sorry to hear that Martin.

    Sounds promising. Let's hope it's not just hype.
  14. I could be totally wrong, but from what i've seen and read they are working on tests for antibodies at the moment. I think the big unknown seems to be that if someone has had covid19and recovered, do they have antibodies and if so how much protection do they have and for how long is that protection going to last.

    Near or far

    That reminded me of a quote that may have came from yourself Phone, or maybe Newt. "A hundred years is a long long time in the US but not in the UK, but a hundred miles is a long long way in the UK but not in the US" *or something along those lines.

    Of course you are quite correct Ken. I sometimes used to set a rod up, engage the freespool on my reel and walk the baited hook down the towpath about 20yrds or so and just drop it in next to my feet. It's not something I tended to do until after dark when all was quiet and still, i'd just scatter a few free offerings in every now and again before giving it a go.
  17. All my rods are weirdos. That's why I never caught much, it had absolutely nothing to do with my abilities......honest.
