This is a question The Worst Journey in the World

Aspley Cherry Garrard was the youngest member of the Scott Polar Expedition when he and two others lost their tent to the winds of a night-time snowstorm. They spent hours in temperatures below -70°F stumbling about the ice floes hoping they'd bump into it as it was their only hope of survival.

OK, so that was bad, but we reckon you've had worse. We know how hard you lot are.

Ogdens Travel & Blackpool, Arrgh!
Another pretty grim one was going to Blackpool last year with my GF.

Don't see the fascination in that place, but it was a good day out UNTIL we returned home. Or, at least tried to....

On returning home, there were massive jams because of people gawping at a bunch of f__king coloured bulbs arranged in patterns and stuff. Trapped on a coach of old people and kids, travelling at millimeters an hour, compounded by the fact he took the wrong way out of there. With no WC facilities as it was a skanky old coach that barely passes it's MOT, if it EVER did. No air con or ability to open a window, only them sodding sky light things and the vent things that are above your heads were mostly not working, OR the map reading lights. I was trapped in a coach journey to hell, or, alternatively heaven for Moths.

Ended up returning back to her gaff at 01.30 - thought I was going to be on the coach forever. F__k knows how kids would have felt on the coach, as they obviously have dramatically lower attention spans then adults.

Like, what the hell is Blackpool Lights about?? If I wanted to watch a light show I would have stared at one of my gadgets that has lots of flashing lights, like, dunno, my ADSL router, the audio level display on my tape deck or mini disc on my Hi-FI seperates. What ARE these people that see them?? re-incarnated f____ng moths or something?!!?

She wants to go to Blackpool again...Over my dead ar_ehole!!!
