Coffee or tea?

Otherwise known as the Games Room, think of this as a subforum of the social club reserved just for sociable icebreaker games. Beware - they can be addictive!

Oh, bugger! I did not know of them and made an assumption . . . (and how many times have I been told, and told others, about making assumptions?)

Well, ignorance triumphs again here I fear - I had to Google. OK, "tots" in case I get accused of symbolic cannibalism!

Soreen, for my nostalgia. (most people rub fiery jack on it.)


Canal towpaths or disused railway lines (for a pleasant stroll)?

Canal towpaths are much nicer. Although the verbal abuse from anglers (on the canals) and extreme cyclists (on the disused railway lines) is of a comparable nature, only the cyclists can kill you when they run you down.

Similar to Deep heat Dave, though I can't imagine spreading it on my fruit loaf. :)
Fiery Jack Fiery Jack Cream and Ointment.
For symptomatic relief of muscular pain and stiffness including Sciatica, Lumbago, Fibrositis and rheumatic pain.
Capsicum oleoresin is a naturally-occurring product obtained from a member of the capsicum pepper family.
The active ingredient is capsaicin which is used as a counter-irritant.
These Counter-irritants cause redness and heat to be produced when they are applied directly onto the skin of the affected area. This in turn distracts the brain from the pain that was originally there and so reduces the perception of that pain.

Ah, no. not on me Sorren for sure (or as it sore-en?), sort of chemical TENS then? I can think of much nicer sensory distractions than smelly embrocations . . .

Nethir. I use geranium and tee tree essential oils. (This is as near to woo as I go, these days, but I don't use propellant sprays except where nothing else will do . For example, I use WD40 spray because it frees rusted-in mechanical bits like nothg else I know. Apart from GT84 bike-spray (v. expensive).

WD40 or GT84?

WD40 (never heard of the other) every time for me.

["Tea tree" is my usual anti-smell stuff, but "winter spice" if that's not available. Wish they would do something like "old leather and port wine" for us single blokes.]

Low energy bulbs or energy gobblers?

Both (low energy ones where I've no dimmer switch.. desperately waiting for the price of dimmable LEDs to drop below the utterly fantastic)

Neither are good for the blood-pressure! The Torygraph is good for it's economic commentary (Patrick Minford used to do it, amongst others), and OK for general news and has a do-able crossword. The sports coverage is supposed to be good, but I hardly ever look at that. It's politics is crass, and tends to rely on "common sense", ie they can't think of any proper justification, and they're not exactly in the atheist camp!

The Grauniad is good for....erm.....erm....erm.....public sector jobs. And maybe the arts? But I don't give a fig for news coverage of that, I'm afraid.



Would you prefer to see King Lear or The Mousetrap?

King Lear. Depending on the performances, it's eternally re-watchable.
If you've seen mousetrap once, that's that. (BTW @@££$$%% did it!)
