Things you want to say but can't

Must be my altruistic tendencies but given a chance to stop the concept of' buy to let' in it's tracks I would have murdered the arsehole at Bradford and Bingley who came up with the idea.

Rent out a property if you've paid for it yourself. Getting the tenant to pay off your mortgage! God, you have to be a cunt to think that's ok.

SG, my missus can keep the most solid 'straight face' I know of.

I remember going around to the new house belonging to a guy I used to run with.

Showing us around the house my missus took one look at the full length wardrobe mirrors alongside the bed and said, "And what in God's name are these for?"

Splutter, splutter!

Not half as spluttering as my dad was after my kid sister (then nine years old) came home and said "Shelia Green's mum and dad have got mirrors on their bedroom ceiling".

'Get in'.

WOW! How Much?

Why does the OP have an issue with the price of shoes?

One merely has to consider the savings made not buying shoes over the past ten years; so he's in credit there.

However, considering the increase in weight, I assume the 'shoe' money was spent on; I was going to say Mc Burgers, but seeing as the Op is the same age as me, almost certainly 'fine wines and the best malt whiskeys'.

SG, the late night digs are really about killing an idle moment. I'm not really out to 'get someone'. Just a touch of boredom.

I confess that I was trained (by a couple of guys from Nuneaton) in the art of the 'wind up'.

I was deemed a consultant on such matters when on one occasion I had a guy screaming in my face (frothing at the mouth literally) without him coming up with any particular reason for doing so.

I remember standing passively by until he'd blown himself out, and then with concern saying, " Andy, you appear to be upset about something?".

I made him a cup of tea after the second explosion.

Not often you get a solicitor; of all people, to go red mist.  

I didn't hold with some bystanders opinion that I should have 'decked him'.

The only way housing will become universally affordable is (1) Build so many that the price comes down.

(2) Get rid of a few million people.


Levy mortgage interest rates of the historical average of 12%, now and again and there you go.

Won't happen.

It's political. There's too many voters with too much to lose and plenty of banks who are determined the voters don't lose until they (the banks) have extracted every last penny from them.

Cortina: As Bus mentioned, being injured gives me a chance to revert to my natural state which is being almost immobile.

Really, I'm the polar opposite of many runners; or quite a lot of people, in that I have zero nervous energy.

The less I do, the more I tend towards doing even less.

If I don't run. I soon forget all about it.  That's something I have to fight against...

and becoming a fat bastard!

Basically, it's about muscle recruitment.

At any given level of exercise, only the required fibres are brought into play. The further you go, the more are used. Some which are not used to being recruited get tired. They get the message though.

It's why doing lots of 10 mile runs won't touch fibres which only a 15 will reach.

It's also why being able to run a regular 20 miler will cover all distances up to it.
