Tell Us Your Story »

Potential ambulance service punters and relatives
1) Don't greet us with the words "you'll need a stretcher". If you're an accountant, would you expect me to come to your work and say "you'll need a calculator"? No...then fuck off.

2) If you call an ambulance, make some kind of effort to make yourself/your house visible. Turning on an outside light. Getting someone to stand outside to wave us down (see point 3). Giving the operator an idea of local landmarks. Saying "I'm in Newcastle"does NOT help....)

3) If you are aforementioned waving gimp. A simple sticking out of hand as if you were hailing a taxi will suffice. Performing actions that make you look like an epileptic mating with a windmill will not expedite our arrival. In fact we may just drive past for the hell of it.

4) If you got yourself upstairs, you can sure as fuckery get yourself downstairs.

5) Abdominal pain does not affect the motor function of the legs. You can still walk.

6) If I came and sat in your house, pissed on the floor, threw up on myself and fell asleep on a chair, you may be put out. So don't do it on my fucking ambulance.

7) Don't even fucking think about hitting me. I hit back. Harder. And I can kill you and leave no trace.

8) Unless there is a very good reason, you go to the A&E of my choice. Good reasons include a: it's a skive b: it's a fun drive c: it's about lunchtime and the canteen is good d: the nurses are all sluts and e: because I'm a vindictive bastard.

9) Did I mention that if you do succeed in assaulting me, my friends the police will make sure you get nicked. And hurt. And will causally remark to some of their sources inside that you are a kiddie fidler.

10) Grannies pay attention: if you have chest pain, don't wait until the morning to call because "you didn't want to be a bother." Trust me, be a bother (this is probably the most serious point - if you have chest pain, call 999/911 for fuck's sake!)

11) If you've been drinking, don't lie about the amount. We're not fucking cretins.

12) If you've taken drugs, tell me. I can guess. And so can the purple elephant. Trust me, the majority of us have experienced unofficial medication in the past, so we know when we are being lied to.

13) Girls: if your mate is lying on the ground vomiting after downing 15 shots of sambuca, do not tell us her drink has been spiked. Your friend looks like something the japanese would kill for research. It would take something that would normally be used for anaesthetising bull elephants to bring her down, and nobody, not even a raving pervert, would shag it.

14) Being above the 5th floor in a block of flats is a capital offence.

15) If your first words to us are "you took your time" then they may also be your last.

16) Living in the middle of nowhere has its advantages. It also means that it may take a bit of time to get to you. We drive vans, not the starship enterprise.

17) If you are a scrote, and you are cold and fancy going to the A&E for a bit of food and a cup of tea...tell me. Don't lie and say you have chest pain.

18) We can spot a fake fit 5 miles off.

19) If you have a very sick baby, an ambulance crew will appear behind you by magic.

20) We do care, but the job does get to you. So please take the cynicism, sick humour and bad fucking temper with a pinch of salt. Especially if you call me out at 5 minutes before shift end.
Thanks to bwts.org with some of this stuff. Believe me, it's all true...

Druggies / Alckies in and around Leith:
My Top Ten Tips for shopping at Tesco Metro

(1) If you plan to go shopping in Tesco Metro, do that BEFORE having a nose-full/arm-full/kazoo-full/skin-full of mind-bogglants

(2) If you fuck (1) up, DO NOT choose the self-service checkout

(3) If you ignore the advice in (2), do not threaten the staff who are trying to help you

(4) Also, the woman's voice coming from the little machine is a RECORDING so there is no point in arguing with her

(5) Try to keep focused on waving groceries around until you hear a *beep* and then putting them in the bagging area - do not get distracted by the cute doggy, the security man giving you 'attitude', or the 'stuck-up English bitch' talking to you from inside the machine

(6) On no account should you try to cheat the system or steal - you WILL FAIL

(7) Don't keep looking round to see if people are looking at you, THEY ARE - it's not entirley drug-induced paranoia on your part, you are making a bit of a cunt of yourself

(8) Don't expect anyone other than yourself to see the funny side of an adult taking 15 minutes to put a Mars Bar and two cans of Tennents through the till

(9) Once you've successfully bagged your shopping and paid for it, do not take the time to profusely thank everyone who has helped you through this monumental challenge

(10) Once outside the shop, you are NOT entitled to a replacement or full refund for any item damaged when you smash into a lampost/wall/pavement while admiring a doggy / avoiding a wasp / sending a text, so don't bother asking

Pony club horse box drivers
When leaving the gymkhana, ignore the signs that tell you NOT to turn left onto the road marked "unsuitable for wide vehicles" so that you, your spoilt brats and the 4-legged bbq fodder in the trailer can be laughed at unmercifully by me, once you get REALLY stuck. And remember that, because YOU'VE decided to drive down a totally unsuitable road, so have your jodhpured, alice-banded sisterhood so you'll ALL get stuck with no prospect of getting out without FIVE towtrucks.
Also remember that, just because YOU'RE an ignorant self-centred useless waste of DNA that only gets the 4x4 and the credit card because your husband is successful, it doesn't mean that all men will help you. I, for one, will laugh at you till a little bit of wee comes out whilst watching your predicament.

Genuine Top Tip
I used to work with a bloke who'd keep a bar of standard soap in the top of his tool-box. This was not for washing his hands.. This was for preventing the accumulation of dirt and grease under his fingernails as he worked.

Before starting the day, he'd sit and carefully scratch at the well-sorn grooves in the soap thus filling the under-fingernail-gap with solid soap.

At the end of the day's work, he'd wash his hands and wash the soap out.

His fingernails were always spotless...

Remeber that next time your'e about to scurry under the car, or to work in the garden: It works a treat, and a bar of soap with scratch marks in it is always a good conversation point.

Wisdom Teeth Removal - top tips
Deciding to have it done.

1: Feelings on wisdom teeth differ. However, if yours are impacted, it doesn't necessarily mean that they have to be hoiked out. They should only be removed if they are actually causing you hassle, or may cause you bother in the future.

2: If you are going to have them done, then try wherever possible to have them all done at once.

3: If possible, always try to have them done at hospital. 'Tis free.

4: The best people to yank 'em out aren't necessarily the dental hospital. If you can, try and get referred to maxillofacial surgery, as they are both surgeons AND dentists. And very good at jigsaws.


1: When you go for your pre-op, ask for general anaesthetic (or sedation if that's not possible). This makes the whole experience much easier. Trust me.

2: If you have concerns, ASK the docs. There's no such thing as a silly question when people are pulling bits out of your body.

3: Try if possible to give up smoking. I'll explain why later.

4: The day of the op, you'll probably be nil by mouth from midnight if going for GA. If not, about 1 hour prior to the op, take 2 x 400mg ibuprofen tablets. This will help with the swelling.


1: If you are asleep for it, well done. Your part in this is fairly limited.

2: If not, chances are you're getting midazolam. Be aware, that this stuff SERIOUSLY lowers your inhibitions, and you can say stuff you may later regret! (although you won't know about it.) However, you'll not remember a thing and will have a generally nice time.

3: If it is local only, then for the love of St Maddie of Portugal, let them know if you feel ANY pain straight away.

4: You will feel a LOT of tugging. The surgeon will probably be sweating like Josef Fritzl watching Changing Rooms. There will be cracking noises. This is all normal (but still horrific).


1: If you had a general, you will likely wake up aching a bit and with a terrible thirst. This is the bad bit I'm afraid. You usually wont be allowed to drink for about 2 hours after the op, as the blood clot needs time to form. Take some wet-wipes or bits of gauze to moisten your lips.

2: You WILL bleed.

3: You are likely to feel like shite. When you are under, they will likely give you some painkillers (including a diclofenac up the old nipsy, so make sure all tagnuts are removed prior to going under.) These WILL wear off.

4: The bleeding will mainly cease within about 1-2 hours. You may find that they have given you some dissolvable stitches. Otherwise, you may have some gauze to bite down on to stop the bleeding. If it starts again (a lot) then let someone know.


1: Right, let's talk drugs. You are going to need them. They usually give you some painkillers to go home with, but what I would suggest is to stock up on the following:
a: paracetamol
b: aspirin (soluble)
C: senna
Why senna? Well, chances are that they will give you codeine, which bungs you up like nobody's business. Unless you want to be producing brown trout you could use as piers for a 6-lane suspension bridge, you'll want something to soften them up. The paracetamol is because you (or they) will run out otherwise, and the aspirin is for later on.

2: Chances are you'll also be given mouthwash. Use it. For the love of fuck, use it. Your mouth is dirtier than your ringpiece, and unless you want an abscess or infection, then you want to keep it as clean as possible. If you are not given any, nip to boots and buy a bottle of oraldene (bright pink stuff.) Use it after every meal.

3: Day 1 post op, you'll probably feel not too bad. Don't let this lull you. You've still got a substantial amount of anaesthetic in your bloodstream.

4: Take your painkillers REGULARLY. It takes most pain killers around 1-2 hours to reach peak plasma concentration, so if you are in pain, it's going to take ages to wear off.

5: Week 1 is going to be, unfortunately, quite unpleasant (but no worse than the pain you had beforehand!). Lots of soup is your friend, as are muller rice. These were literally the only thing I could eat, and they have the advantage of being quite nutritious. Get a bag of value frozen peas and use this for about 15 minutes a few times a day for the swelling.

6: Hot drinks might well hurt. Be careful.

7: Beware of dry socket. Dry socket is quite frankly, the worst pain in the world. It occurs when the blood clot drops out of the socket. Basically that means there's nothing between the exposed bone/nerve and the outside world. It hurts like a prolonged kick to the nuts. A big risk factor to getting this is smoking (due to the sucking action and smoke drying out your mouth) so this is why I recommend giving up if you can.

8: Aspirin: This is your friend. If you are getting severe pain, then 2 x 300mg soluble aspirin in your mouth and chewed up WILL help the pain straight off. Then rinse your mouth and swallow.

9: Make sure you don't overdose by accident!

10: If you find the pain is not going by end of week 1, or if you get a sore throat or similar, nip to the dentist for some antibiotics.

11: If you are prescribed metranidazole, please read this carefully: DO NOT FUCKING DRINK ALCOHOL. Really. I am not fucking kidding.

12: The stitches feel weird as fuck in your mouth, but will dissolve eventually.

13: You may find that little shards of bone/teeth will come through the socket over the recovery period. Don't worry. This is normal.

In conclusion, people frighten the fuck out of you when they talk about wisdom teeth removal. Remember, it's not as bad as everyone says. Trust me. If you're worried, don't hesitate to ask for a second opinion!

Credit Card Companies
Save money by not printing and sending out chequebooks with customers' credit-card statements, along with chirpy little notes saying "We thought you might find these useful!". In case you hadn't noticed, over the last couple of years, cheques have become the immigrant paedophiles of the financial world. Most shops would rather let you pay with a handful of tepid faeces than sit and wait as you fart around writing a cheque and filling in the stub, then realising you put the date as 2007. No bastard accepts cheques. Cash Converters might do, but then they also accept Zimbabwean dollars and still-warm car stereos, so it's to be expected. Cheques are shit. Nobody wants cheques. Stop sending them out. We don't find them 'useful'. They're just a massive pain in the arse because it's another thing to shred.

Want to start a market stall? Worried?
Just remember these handy hints and you'll be a budding entrepeneur in no time:

* The apostrophe is your friend - for example 'pant's', 'cabbage's', 'carrot's'.

* Authentic spelling errors are a must: 'potatoe', 'chickin', 'gammen'.

* If a price is to be displayed, use both £ and p to denote said value: £4.99p. Now there is no doubt of the cost.

* Show your respect for men by calling them 'guv', 'son' or 'sir', whilst calling all women 'darlin'.

* Be the loudest. Everyone knows a rich market trader is a loud market trader. Shout the loudest and you are sure to attract those shy buyers.

* Finally, make sure to employ at least one special needs teenager. The old dears will think he's charming as he ambles over to fuck up their simple order. As a bonus, you can give him a well mannered 'clout' every so often and pay him half of what you pay everyone else!

How to pull! Guaranteed!
When your out in the clubs and you see a hot young thing strutting her stuff on the dance floor, walk over, confidently take her hand in yours and whisper into her ear, 'Come on love; lets not turn this rape into a murder', and casually escort her off the dance floor.

Can't get to sleep at night because of ambient light, and don't have a sleeping mask handy? Contort yourself into a fetal ball and pull the top hemisphere of your foreskin up over the front of your face. The skin is remarkably pliant and as an added bonus you can thread some stray pubes through your teeth in order to keep the thing snug and secure.

When in a busy nightclub (the busier the better)
Go to the bar. Wave a £20 note while waiting to be served. Keep waving it until someone goes to serve you. When they are getting you the drink, swap the twenty in your hand for a tenner, then give the bar person the ten instead.

About 4 times out of 5 they'll give you the change for a twenty. Isn't psychology fun?

Have a work colleague who is always fucking about with a blob of Blu-Tac? Maybe they use it as a stress relief ball thing that used to be popular 10 years ago, maybe they use copious amounts of the stuff when they don't really need to.

When they're not about, preferably at lunchtime when they're gone for a while, collect up their Blue-Tac, spear it onto a paperclip and set fire to it.

It will burn steadily much like a candle wick and whilst doing so turns from blue to white. Eventually, whatever it is that is flammable will run out and the flame will go out.

As the 'white tac' as it has become cools down, it turns back blue again. It's like magic.

When it's cool enough to touch, ever so gently take it off the paperclip and place it back on your colleague's desk. It still looks exactly like the original piece of Blu-Tac except now it has different properties.

It has become a chalky substance which is more crumbly than a stock cube and consequently when the colleague picks it up, it will fall apart between their fingers.

Choose a good password
Bad form to post unfunny actual tips, I know, but what the hell...


My top tip for setting a difficult-to-crack, easy-to-remember password =

1) Take your favourite nursery rhyme, song lyric, poem stanza etc

2) Turn it into an acronym using these rules:

-Use the first letter of each word for each letter of the password, i.e. Jack becomes a 'j'
-substitute the word 'and' for an ampersand '&'
-subsitute the word 'a' or 'at' with an '@' symbol
-substitute words that sound like numbers for the number itself, i.e. to--2, free--3, for--4 etc
-Capitalise the first letter

Now you have a password that almost certainly meets your company's password policy. Here's one I made earlier:


Which is of course "Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water"

Reminders can then be left on your desk, in your notebook or wherever in a form that you find easy to remember, i.e. "password is Jack and Jill"

Step 1, team up with a trolley buddy, henceforth to be known as TB (unfortunate, ehh)

Step 2, take TB into supermarket, both acquire trolleys and do your weekly shop, both of you must acquire exact quantities of exactly the same products. (see where this is going?)

Step 3, you go and pay for one trolley load of goods, keep the receipt and put items directly into the trolley, no bags.

Step 4, leave TB in store and unpack your paid for goods into your car (we're hoping you have one). Then return to store and find TB

Step 5, meet up with TB in store and saunter out with his load of shopping. If collared by security guard brandish receipt for paid for goods. Hey presto, double shopping for half the price.

Step 6, alternate ending. Return one load of shopping and demand money back. Up to you

Step 7, report back with your success stories, or otherwise.

On sexual intercourse
1) Choose a position that maximises deep penetration and friction against the g-spot. Ladies - why not lie face down with a cushion under your pelvis for a hot friction stuffin'?

2) Ladies - while engaging in the missionary position, why not suck and gently nibble his nipples as a thank you for him doing all the work? He'll love it!

3) Gents - strip your partner naked and trace light-fingered patterns across their back, neck and buttocks. It increases sensitivity and gets the loins a-droolin'!

4) Ladies - buy your guy a soft paintbrush and encourage him to delicately 'paint' around your labii, vulva and inner thighs until the sensation has you gagging for a porkin'!

5) Go to the supermarket wearing a mini skirt and no panties, pausing now and then to bend over. It's even better if your boyfriend is there to watch.

6) Next time you're lying on the grass in the park, why not have sex in full view of everyone else. This is Britain - nobody is going to say anything!

7) If you're not into anal, why not just rub a lubed bell against your partner's bronze knot before ejaculating there in a spectacular porno moment of mess? It's dirteh!

8) Pop to the lavs at work and stroke one off while thinking about that secretary / boss you fancy. Who'll know?

An ex-girlfriend of mine was feeling upset and sad
She wanted to vent about her problems. I thought I was being helpful by explaining how she could solve them. After each one of my brilliant "solutions" she would say, "Yeah, but there's also.." and name another problem, to which I would provide a solution.

Finally, she got frustrated and said "I just want you to say you understand."

This was one of the most important things I ever learned.

Sometimes, when people are angry or frustrated and they want to complain about their problems, they don't want you to solve them: they just want to be acknowledged. They want you to listen and say "there there."

When you start giving them advice, it feels to them like you are not listening and you are just bossing them around, when they are venting because they feel like no one is listening anyway.

So, you can save yourself a lot of grief (and time, and mental energy) by just telling people who are angry and upset "I understand," instead of offering solutions. They'll feel better.

Apologies for dullness.

Undercover Police
1: A 7 month old Vauxhall Vectra (in silver) is not the only available surveillance vehicle.
Try for something more local, e.g. V reg Nissan Primera in bottle green, Rover Metro (dysentry beige) or, if in Benwell, a burnt out Renault Megane. On bricks.

2: When choosing your outfit, think of something that may make you blend in. A local football team shirt is usually a good option, but do make sure it's not your one with "ROZZERS" and the number "999" on the back.
A white shirt, blue jeans, white trainers and leather/denim jacket are not as inconspicuous as you may think, unless you're doing a stakeout in the 80's. Here's a clue: look around you, but don't for the love of cunting fuck try to dress like the yoof. You might as well wear your high vis jacket and your tit hat.

3: On the subject of aforementioned police garb: don't leave it on the back parcel shelf of your surveillance vehicle.

4: Sitting in one spot staring at a front door with your engine running for 3 hours may well be thought of as being a wee bit suspicious. Even in Benwell.

5: IF you want to get entry to a property pretending to be from the gas board, then at least have a passing fucking clue what a gas meter/boiler looks like. By the way, they all stopped wearing overalls in the 80's.

6: When you go for coffee and doughnuts and the friendly shopkeep asks you what you're doing in this part of town, don't say. "oh we're watching a house. You know, number 97. 3 doors down from here. The one with a red door. Turns out he likes drugs, guns and midget porn. But keep it quiet." He may have friends in the area.

Convince millions
of people that you are doing them a favour by temporarily dropping VAT by 2.5% but raising fags, booze and vroom juice by the same amount.

A few months later raise the VAT back up to 17.5% BUT leave the extra on fags, booze and juice!

Voila! A sneaky rise on the things people buy a lot of, whilst at the same time claiming to be helping people!

(of course, with haulage firms being only able to claim back 15% of their vroom juice, you've effectively made their journeys 2.5% more expensive too, so shops will charge more and you claim the extra in sales taxes, nice! Plus taxi firms will increase prices, and thus killing off even more of the dwindling pub trade and keeping more proles at home watching BBC propaganda - double whammy!)

Actual genuine tip that's not particularly funny but you might find useful:
Lidl gets a really bad press as a cheap n nasty food supermarket spoken of in a similar vein to Iceland or Netto, but 'cos it gets most it's food from European sources where food directives about quality and standards are much much stricter than here, it may well be cheap, but large quantities of it are equivalent to that over priced shite we get sold for massive mark ups in M&S 'cos it's described as 'organic', ie, it is not fucked about with in a factory process to make it go further.

Example: Bacon, cheap supermarket bacon in this country is complete and utter shite, read the label, how the fuck can bacon, supposedly actual pieces of a pig, be 85% meat!? WTF is the other 15%!? Lidl's basic bacon ingredients: Dry cured pork, salt.

In the frozen section you will also find the best American steaks available in this country for only £3 for 2, ingredients: hung beef steak.

Don't diss Lidl unless you have ever tried it, they may well give Iceland style prices and have products you need to speak a second language to comprehend what it is inside, but unlike said Iceland, said products actually contain food!

Hell, they even have mince that isn't transparent pink and doesn't melt when heated, and pizza that actually uses tomato paste, doesn't have the word 'flavour' after it's description of topping, and has actual cheese!

Who would have thunk it!?

If like me you shop on a tight budget, but can't live on over processed shite nor always get to the local market, give it a go.

Do not, however, ever work for them. Ever. And I'd avoid the fresh veg, the staff aren't payed enough to look after it properly so 'fresh' is often a bit euphemistic...

Lorry drivers
If, between sessions of murdering prostitutes, you ever find yourself behind the wheel of a red Volvo extended articulated flatbed with a crane, an ever-so-witty "if you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you" sticker, and a license plate which reads X474JOF, on a soaking wet spray-filled M25, and you want to move right from lane 1 to lane 2, you should consider your wing mirrors entirely optional. There is no requirement whatsoever to check for any cars which might be sitting in lane 2, parallel to your fuel tank, and which might have their headlights switched on in an evidently vain attempt to improve other drivers' chances of seeing them. Your fellow road users always appreciate the bowel-loosening rush of fear and adrenaline which accompanies the realisation that they could be dead in less than a minute. Furthermore, if any such road users ever drop down two gears and floor it past the front of your lorry because the other three options are to brake hard enough for your lorry to pass in front completely before it completes its lane change and either lose traction on the wet road or be rear-ended by a van, swerve to the right and hit the passenger side of another car, or remain in position and be crushed by your lorry, you should consider it your duty to lean on the horn and flash your headlights in a specious attempt to rebuke the other driver for averting a collision and saving his own life, because such audible and visual signals serve to let other road users know what a useless, fat, mouth-breathing cunt you are.

Have a spare corpse in the lounge,but not sure what to do with it? Ta Daa! Problem solved!

1)Hollow it out
2) Fill with sand. I find good quality sheep manure works best
3) Punch holes in corpse
4) Insert some seeds in holes. Nothing with complicated root systems.
5) Pour water in mouth
6) watch, wait and enjoy.

My corpse has a fully automated watering system discreetly rigged through the arsehole. It looks mint.

Feeling patriotic?
Go abroad and get sh*tfaced every day until you puke.Try to wear as little clothing as possible and make sure every piss you have is on or as near as possible to a treasured national monument. Always speak English slowly to the local spanish waiter while doing 'wanker' movements with your hand to your mate. When walking along and you finish a beer always smash the bottle on the ground and if in a pub try to glass at least one local during your stay. Boycott restaurants that serve local food and make sure you leer at everything with a fanny so they know where you from. Try not to go out in groups of less than 20 people and always make sure at least one of your party is draped in an England flag at all times and someone shouts C*******NNNNNTTTTT!!! at random intervals. These intervals should not exceed a period of 1 minute - this is very important otherwise people may forget where you are from.

As many know I've recently had 2 of my ribs cracked in a random street assault.
Here are some (unusually) serious tips I've learned for anyone who gets similarly disadvantaged on how to deal with the pain and repair period:

At first it doesn't seem too bad, but the pain gets worse before things get better. Co-codamol 30/500 tablets are great for pain relief but you will need to get them prescribed, as the nerves regenerate where your ribs are cracked they'll feel like a knife attack whenever you move, so you will need these or something similar, but follow the instructions EXACTLY and never take more than recommended nor mix with paracetamol, or you can face irreversible liver damage. Seriously.

During the first few weeks it's best to move as little as possible, and if you cough or, heaven forbid, sneeze, you will often hear a crack and it will hurt like hell and you can be floored for hours as things start to re-settle themselves, so here are some ways to help:

Simply holding your nose and gently massaging it will end the urge to sneeze, you can't always catch 'em in time, but this will stop one you feel coming on.

You must cough and take deep breathes as much as possible, like once every few hours, even tho every fibre of your being says not to, or you will get pneumonia as fluids collect in your lungs. Standing and getting a cushion or pillow and pressing it to the affected area as you do so helps loads. There is nothing anyone can do about the pain of doing this and I must admit I avoided it on my worst days, but a hug afterwards helps.

You may have to sleep sitting up to stop the 'weight on the heart' feeling that comes from laying down, make a 'ramp' from lots of pillows and cushions, but if you really have to lay on your side to get some good sleep, then a small cushion under the gap beneath the shoulder coupled with a rolled one to hold in the arms seemed to work well for me.

You occasionally get this awful feeling like something is putting pressure on your chest and you can't breath, try not to panic, this is normal, try to ride thru it, but if you really can't get a breathe, don't be afraid to get driven to A&E or call 999, better safe than sorry.

It takes 4-6 weeks for this to heal, just take it easy and no matter how bored or frustrated you get, try and stay in bed and do bugger all for the first couple of weeks. Stay off the pills and booze as much as you can to try and keep your body healthy, only use 'em if you really need 'em, night time is the worst, if you can't sleep, just rest and find something to entertain yourself and take cat naps when you can.

A hot water bottle on the area helps.

It's nearly been a month now for me and I'm just getting right again, my left arm and shoulder joint is still not right and is weaker than my right, and I still get pain if I do too much with it so I still have a way to go, but my ribs and lungs seem to be working OK now and everything seems to be steadily repairing.

So you need patience and time and pain relief, but it does repair eventually, just keep plodding on, and don't try too hard.

Hope that helps someone.

The Chivalry Act
If, god forbid, you are like me and my friends in that you can make charming witty conversation with women all night but the conversation opener scares you more than castration by spoon, this is for you.

Find a group of girls (prefferably only 2) in a club (doesn't work well in a pub or anywhere before 1 in the morning). Send one of your mates over to said girls either pissed out of his brains to the point of slavering or at least pretending, and here comes the chivalry.
Give your mate about 20 seconds to make those girls disgusted with every part of his being then go over, tell your mate to fuck off back to the bar and apoligies to the ladies offering to get them a drink.

This is a reasonably good technique though sometimes you do wonder why you are sober as a judge pretending to be some kind of drunken rapist just so your mate can try and get laid.

1. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you
from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

2. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will
be afraid to cough.

3. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting
someone else to hold them while you chop away.

4. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by simply
using the sink.

5. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a
few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use
a timer.

6. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will
forget about the toothache.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Always remember...
* Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
* Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
* If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

* Be really nice to your family and friends; you never know when you might

Save a fortune on household cleaning products and help the environment at the same time.
All your cleaning product can be made from the same few products. I have listed the prices that are current to Sainsburies:

Lemon juice (squeezey bottle) - £0.32p
Bicarb of soda - £0.75p
Distilled vinegar 1l (not malt) - £1.38p
Table salt - £0.42
Tea tree oil - £4.13p
Total - £7.00p

These will last a about two months, you will also need a couple of left over spray bottle from your original cleaners.

Surfaces, sinks, toilets and hobs: 1/3 vinegar, about three table spoons of lemon juice (or a good squirt), two teaspoons of teatree oil and fill the rest up with water (shake well before use).
This will clean all surfaces around the house including the kitchen, hobs, sinks and toilets.
When cleaning toilets and sinks spray and then lightly sprinkle (I use an icing sugar shaker) bicarbonate of soda over the bowl or sinks and then give a good scrub. This method also shine taps and household metal up a treat. The lemon makes the it smell nice and acts as a bleach, the vinegar disinfects as does the tea tree oil but gives a great shine. The foaming action of the bicarb lifts dirt and works with the lemon to smell nice and fresh.

Windows and mirrors: Use the same mixture on the hob, if you have stubborn stain pour half/half salt and bicarb and make a paste with the spray. That works as a great scourer.

For windows and mirrors use a 50/50 vinegar and water mix and use old newspaper not a cloth (although this tends to have issues with Windows Vista but what doesn't). The paper soaks up the water and stops streaking while the vinegar shines. Most window and mirror cleaners are vinegar based anyway.

Wood and non carpeted floors: Use half a cup of vinegar in half a bucket of warm water.

There was many more uses for these products including carpet stain removers and air freshers just to name two but those are the basics.

So if you assume these will last you two months, that's your household cleaning for 88p a week assuming that you clean your house everyday. If you only do it once a week then we're talking 12p a week.

My Christmas Survival Guide
#1: Carol Singers.

Simply put on a skull-cap, walk up to the door singing ‘Hava Nagila’ loudly, and answer the door with a big smile and a cry of ‘Shalom!’.

#2: The Shopping.

You will need a willing accomplice for this. Take one handkerchief and liberally splatter with drops of yellow, green and above all, red food colouring. Then walk around coughing loudly, waving the handkerchief and arguing with your accomplice that ‘No, the doctor didn’t say it was contagious, did he?’.

#3: Presents.

Buy everyone a box of batteries labeled with ‘Gift Not Included’.

#4: Midnight Mass.

Bored of the same old hymns? Start creating your own lyrics and slipping them into familiar songs, a point for each one nobody notices. By the way, ‘Labeled Four Cheeses’ makes a great substitute for ‘Lord Baby Jesus’.

#5: Christmas Dinner.

An easy one this. Just ply everyone with plenty of drinks, ensure that there are plenty of nibbles to hand, and at a strategic point, when everyone is drunk enough, stand up and announce ‘I’ll just do the washing up then’. If you’ve done it right, they’ll all say ‘No, leave it til later, let dinner go down first’.

#6: Not enough ‘specialized’ drinks for cocktails etc.

Stock up before Christmas with plenty of cheap vodka, then just add it to various household liquids for the desired effect. Sugar and instant coffee makes a good substitute for Tia Maria, mouthwash makes an excellent ersatz Crème De Menthe, and a tin of custard provides the perfect advocaat.

#7: Decorating the tree.

Explain how you’re going back to the more traditional ideas this Christmas, and bring a bucket of chicken entrails into the room. Hey presto, plenty of volunteers for decorating the tree, as long as they don’t want to do it with the entrails of course. Though if they do, remember that entrails are biodegradable, ecologically friendly, and the smell will leave the house in a few years anyway.

#8: Arguments over what to watch on the TV.

Kick the screen in. That way, no more TV, no more arguments.

#9: Crap songs on the radio.

For this solution you will need:
1 500ml plastic bottle a quarter full of petrol
1 sack of fertilizer
10 bags of sugar
1 functional mobile phone, fully charged with SIM card and the number
2 wires, approximately 1ft in length each
Some tools, namely a miniature screwdriver set and a set of fine wire-strippers
A roll of electrical tape and a roll of duct tape
An old car, preferably one you wouldn’t mind seeing blown up
The address of the local radio station

Erm, perhaps this one wouldn’t be such a good idea…

Stag night parties
Why not go to Prague, Budapest, Riga or any other Eastern European capital for your festivities? In those countries they all speak funny languages so you don't have to try to say anything in the local lingo as it's far too difficult for your collective brain cell to comprehend, and anyway most of them speak English (probably better than you do). You can vomit on the streets, harass the local women, sing stupid songs all night and ignore local laws and customs safe in the knowledge that you're just jolly good chaps out for a good time.

On the other hand - why don't you just fucking stay at home and behave as you usually do in your local? At least people there probably understand or tolerate twats like you. Nobody in any European country wants you. Not at all. Really.

Frozen Peas? No, no, no! Blueberries!
Somehow, frozen peas have become the food product of choice for icing injuries. This is so, so wrong.

When the peas thaw, what do you have? Raw, mushy peas. You have to throw the bag away, it's worthless. Unless you're completely skint and have to eat them anyway, that is.

Instead of frozen peas, I recommend using frozen blueberries. They work just as well as frozen peas as an icepack, and when they thaw, you have a tasty treat!

After all, if you need an icepack, chances are you deserve, or maybe desperately need, a tasty treat.

Court Summons?
refuse to contract - Common Law is the only Law, anything else is contract law -

Contract law can only apply to corporations not real living beings - so how do they get you to contract?

you are summoned through your strawman (your name in capital letters as on your birth certificate - otherwise known as your cert of manifest under admiralty law), the strawman is the legal fiction created to make real beings interact with the fiction of the court system)- not you - do not get tricked into contracting, real beings can not contract and have the right to refuse to contract


If you attend court before taking the oath and before confirming your name (each will get you into contract), ask the Judge:

Did it take long for you to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road?

Why don't you call them french fries like we do?

Why was Stonehenge built so close to the road?

These, and questions like them, will show your interest in the British way of life and increase your popularity from all you meet.

Now, make sure your lady-partner is comfy, and then you insert the new vibe inside whilst using the vibrating bullet on the bald man in the boat. Get it right, and she'll drown out any noises made by the neighbours.

Do you like your eyeglasses especially clean?
Use mouthwash after you brush your teeth in the morning, and clean your glasses directly afterwards with a cleaning cloth. The alchohol from the mouthwash will be on your breath, and your glasses will be much cleaner for it when you blow on them during the cleaning process.

I don't know how it works with spirits. Probably just as well, with the added bonus of getting shitfaced. To be fair, if you're necking shots after you've just brushed your teeth, I doubt you give too much of a fuck about keeping your glasses clean.

Olive oil
Don't waste expensive extra virgin olive oil for frying food, use normal olive oil instead.

Obviously extra virgin is still the sensible option for dressing salads, etc.

Instead of leaning forwards and yelling your order at a bar person while waving the biggest denomination note you have in your wallet in front of their bored disinterested eyes as they sweep by to see the rightful next customer, instead quietly indicate with a discreet point who *is* actually next and after 2 or 3 goes the bar person recognises you for being honest and jumps you up the legitimate order because you aren't being an offensive boorish twat.

The tips below are from this website:

Top Tips
Pretend you're owned by a bumble bee by attaching a wire around your neck and fixing a mushroom to the other end.
Make yourself into a human dynamo by wearing a pair of nylon trolleys and attaching a pair of bulldog clips to your bollocks. Then thrash about frantically as if a bee has just flown up your dirtbox. The charge formed will then be able to power a T.V (probably).
Make everyone in your office believe the cleaners are enslaved squirrels by attaching peanuts to mops and leaving them on the floor.
Annoy your friends by telling them that you've got a really brilliant hi-fi in your room. When they come in to look at it, watch their expressions change as you pull back your jumper to reveal a set of plastic udders filled with piss, which you then proceed to squirt all over them, laughing hysterically.
Tell the doctor you've got duck punch fever. When he asks you what it is, clout him squarely on the nose giving a loud resonant quack.
Show to cinema fans that Forest Gump is escapist nonsense by bringing a load of insane dysentery-infected tramps into the cinema. They'll soon change their opinion of 'lovable halfwits' when one of them ****s in their pop corn.
Illustrate the complex ideas behind the Middle East peace talks by sewing a large cloth shrimp onto the knee of your jeans.
Give yourself an elegant persona by sniggering and telling everyone your surname is Lavender.
Don't throw away egg cartons, cut the bottoms off them to make charming winter hats for woodpeckers.
When you're back-scuttling your wife next make sure you do it in front of a mirror. Watch her sexy expression change as you stick it up her Gary Glitter.
Commit a series of violent attacks on Roger De Coursey. When the police arrive sit there smiling and tell them that it was Cheeky Kevin who did it. Before they can take you away pull out a really poorly-made ginger ventriloquists doll sodomising nookie bear.
Make your wife into a fast breeder reactor by storing the fissile material under her chin. The reaction can then be controlled by sliding a graphite rod between her greased tits.
Play "**** Kick Sinatra (TM)" by going into a restaurant with a stereo after treading in a load of dog ****. The tape is a copy of Frank Sinatra's greatest hits. When Old Blue Eyes starts to sing proceed to kick the **** onto everyone's chips.
Play pensioner pinball by not giving your seat up for some old dear on the bus. Watch and laugh as she flies about the bus completely out of control, bouncing off the other passengers.
Stay awake for a week and then tell your workmates you've been going out with an owl.

Getting away with murder...
As an add on to Jonny Fatman's impecable advice on killing someone I thought I would add this tip.

Get about one pound, half a kilo, of tobacco and soak it in water for a few days until the water looks like the tea of the devil. Lift out the tobacco and strain hard into the "tea".

Put the container of water in either and oven on its LOWEST setting or leave it in a warm place to dry out. You will be left witha small amount of thick liquid like dark honey. This is almost pure nicotine. The stuff that gives you the buzz from ciggies.

Using a pippette or eye dropper, place about 5-8 drops into a cup of coffee for your victim and watch them keel over in a few minutes from heart failure.

This would work especially well if your victim smoked and drank heavily as the Doctors would simply assume natural death. Even if they did decide to test for toxins the raised levels of nicotine would most likely be attributed to the smoking over the years.

Not that I would do this of course. It's just a thought...

Get away with murder in 3 easy steps.
Want to murder someone and make it look like suicide?

Find a room with a sliding bolt lock on the door.

1) Shoot the victim, clean the gun and wipe off your prints. Make sure you get some of their prints on it.

2) Loop some dental floss around the sliding lock and shut the door, standing outside the room.

3) Pull on the floss to close the lock, then release one end to pull the floss thru.

Now flee in an orderly fashion and job's a good un!

The dental floss bit is also a really handy trick to play on your flatmates.

impress your neighbours
by buying the most expensive BMW that you can get, then washing it luxuriantly every weekend with car shampoos and waxes that had to be specially flown in from a wax plantation in Uberschlongen Votdafuckinell which are only harvested by moonlight, carefully applying said car shampoo/wax at a time when you can be assured maximum attention from the other people who live in your cul-de-sac and just to make sure, playing your in-car stereo so loud it becomes an out-car stereo. Enhance the effect by working the fact you have a new BMW into every conversation, no matter how tenuous the link e.g. 'I was considering giving money to charity the other week but then MY NEW BMW NEEDED A FENG SHUEI BLESSING so I didn't give to Foreign Aid' or 'I have discovered this totally revolutionary yeast with which to make your own bread in half the time WHICH I PICKED UP IN MY NEW BEEMER'.

For maximum effect, wait until the other person in the conversation performs a Wrong by not asking you for further information about Your New BMW and also probably bat aside the irritation you feel for having it pointed out that the 118d is the cheapest new BMW that anyone could buy and in effect they are proudly telling people that they are not in the same salary grade as those who buy M-sport models. That's like saying 'Still had sex!' when it is pointed out that they boffed Kerry Katona, i.e. it is not something to be celebrated.

Rather than watering on a daily basis, give it seasons by soaking it for about 36 hours and then don't water it at all for 2 months. When you water it again after the dry season, it will visibly swell. Each wet season will make it grow more than just a daily watering would.

Distortion as an effect is acceptable when using an electric guitar
and overdriving the pre-amp stage to create a sound rich in harmonics and the distinctive fuzzy sound of a modern rock guitar.

Distortion caused by a Vauxhall Corsa factory fit stereo being turned up to max while playing bass-heavy dubstep is conversely not a good sound and while it does make people turn around and look at you, they're more likely to think 'What a twat' instead of the 'Wow, look at that tricked out groovemobile' effect you were hoping to evoke.

p.s. Adding a subwoofer does not remedy the situation.

non-stick frying pan WITH metal utensils
For a super looong-life non-stick frying pan go to eBay and buy a "vintage" cast-iron skillet for $5. Make sure the seller says it's flat on the bottom with no wobbles. Doesn't matter if it's pitted or a bit rusty-looking. Also doesn't matter if it's all blackened or crusty with use.

Really old Griswold, Erie, or Wagner brands were cast with quite thin walls, so they're comparatively light weight.

If desired, start from scratch with bare metal by spraying new-to-you skillet with oven cleaner (wearing rubber gloves) and leaving overnight in plastic trash bag. Wash as usual next day (now it will pick up surface rust, but don't worry). Coat all over, inside and out with Crisco white vegetable shortening using a paper towel, then place upside-down on a sheet of aluminum foil in oven set to 500F for an hour or two.

Things will get quite smoky. Disable the kitchen smoke detector and open windows. It's just this one time.

After cooling, remove your blackened fry pan from oven with tinfoil, throw foil away. Rub off any gummy blackness with paper towel and start cooking.

The whole concept is counter-intuitive, but the black coating gets blacker and thicker the more the skillet is used. It is your non-stick surface, verrry difficult to remove, utensil-proof, and believe it or not quite sanitary.

Adding ice-cold water to a hot skillet can make it crack, but otherwise it will last for at least 100 years. It was probably that old when you bought it on eBay in the first place.

Posting on /board? Long time since you read the FAQ?
Welcome. Essence of the rules for /board, culled from the FAQ, spiced with experience:

Golden rules (especially for n00bs):
1. Read the FAQ (it's the official 'rules'). Or you'll get shouted at.
2. If you make a mistake, be ready to say "oops, sorry!": it really helps. Don't be cocky: it makes you look like a cock.
3. Please read people's replies to your posts, and join in the conversations: they help make B3ta a community.

New threads are precious:
4. Only start a new thread if you're posting a new image that's worth it.
- If it isn't, use "Reply" in an existing thread (or make your image better!).
- Why? Because /board only holds 15 threads: each click of "Post a new message" pushes other people's work off the bottom.
- The rule seems to be: don't use a new thread if you didn't put a reasonable creative effort into making your image.
5. Don't start a new thread to re-post the same (or altered) image.
- Especially not for compo reposts: Reply lets you choose "challenge entry" too.
6. Don't start a new thread with an unmodified photo (unless of a thing you made).
7. Don't start multiple new threads: it's greedy. If you want to post more, use Reply in your existing thread (if it's still on the board).

8. Only post stuff that you made.
9. Only post stuff that you uploaded (don't leach).
10. Don't post NSFW.
11. Not bigger than 100k bytes (50k preferred). Anims: not more than 400k.
12. Not more than 700px wide.
- If it's too big, compress it until it's small enough.
- If it's still too big, post a small thumbnail with a link instead (using: <a href="blahENORMOUS.jpg"> <img src="blahThumb.jpg" /> </a>).

If you cock up:
13. Never use Delete (it also removes everyone's replies!): use the Edit button instead.
14. If you started a new thread by accident, say sorry. (And don't delete it!).

Whatever you put in a message will be downloaded and seen by all b3ta readers, often on their work computer. You could get someone sacked on the spot, or put through a disciplinary investigation that's not much better, because their manager thought it looked a bit like porn from 10 feet away. Do not do it. (For the record all these are no defence: "it isn't actually porn", "you can't see his/her whatever", "you're such a prude", "but no-one complained about this one *points at some-other-image*"). You can link a NSFW image (using: <a href="nekkid.jpg">NSFW!</a>), warning people that it's a NSFW link.

This is just a summary, hopefully useful as a quick checklist when posting. I welcome suggestions for improving it (gaz me).

Why not include a little pop-up window with your e-mail address, in your next piece of "work".

* may actually involve tracking them down and smashing their stupid faces in with a Tyre Iron.

There are many charitable organisations that always need volunteers, and in the end this will be a far more worthwhile legacy than simply proving to thousands of people what an utter thoughtless little shite you can be, and how effectively you can steal a little of their time that they'll never get back.

Chocolate Manufacturers
Ensure your 'brand' retains 'prominence' throughout the festive season. When producing tins of assorted chocolates, be sure to include two revolting flavours such as strawberry, marzipan or anything else which appeals solely to old people and tedious early-thirties bell-ends called Justin who have nothing better to do than start Facebook groups half-heartedly campaigning for the return of discontinued confectionary.

The inclusion of these disgusting varieties will ensure that your tin, rather than being emptied in two days and hurled to the back of the shed, will remain in place on the nation's sideboards long into January, holding a sorry collection of unpleasant leftover sweets, until they are either eaten whilst drunk or emptied into a small souvenir ashtray and ignored until Halloween, when they'll be handed to disappointed trick-or-treaters.

Stupid People
Convince yourself that you're eating healthily by doing your weekly shop at Iceland, who claim that their own-brand products are 'GM-Free'.

N.B. This works best if you overlook the fact that
a) Your weekly shop consists of 50 hoofburgers, 200 chicken-dippers, 12 20-inch deep-pan pizzas, six quintuple-chocolate cheesecakes, a hundredweight of oven-chips and a pack of frozen peas (because the bag you bought six months ago is almost half-empty now), and
b) You don't actually know what 'GM-Free' means, although you do remember the Daily Mail saying it was bad once.

Want to make people believe you're a murderer?
Any time you're with a group of people watching the TV news and a segment comes on about a convicted murderer who'se been in prison for ages appealing his conviction, insist that the TV is turned to a different channel. If they're discussing the segment in question, try and nervously change the conversation topic.

Stand-up comedians: With the advent of online booking, many venues now hold the names and addresses of an event's attendees on a database. If asked, they can probably provide you with a near-complete list of where each member of your audience comes from, thus saving you from having to spend the first half of your performance asking every last fucking one of them in turn.

Office Hilarity
Occasionally, an office worker may have cause to sit at the desk of a fellow employee while that employee is away. If such a scenario arises in your workplace, you can elicit untold mirth by humourously addressing that person using the name of the employee whose seat they have taken. For example, if employee Gunter is sitting at the desk of employee Susan to install software on employee Susan's PC while she is using the photocopier, you would greet employee Gunter with the words 'Good morning, Susan!'.

Seriously. People shit their fucking pants laughing. Every time.

When you cook spaghetti,
hold the spaghetti with one hand and stand it in the centre of the water. Twist the spaghetti with the other hand and let go. The spaghetti will fall fairly evenly around the pan and as it heats up, will gradually get sucked into the water.

Blow your nose - WITHOUT blowing it
Slightly tricky, but basically if you have a snotty nose get some tissue and twist it up into a line.

now, carefully put it to your nose (use a mirror) and get some snot near one end of it. Yes! that's right! get the tissue turning round ensuring you have a hand a each end for control purposes and the snot, if the right consistency, will by the power of mucus magic, start to wind around the tissue and gradually all of the snot in your nostril will be pulled out.

*tip* move the tissue from left to right to keep the snot on fresh tissue, you don't want it going over itself, as this makes the snot lose traction and your snot rollng session will end too early.

if you have a lot of snot, possibly due to having a massive konk a tissue change may be required. with practice you'llbe able to leave a small bit of snot hanging out to attach to the next tissue.

it feels really nice. it is possible for you to do both nostrils at the same time, but this method does mean you'll get some snot on at least both of your index fingers and thumbs.

Personally I prefere te single nostril method, which is very safe as far as snot contamination goes.

Internet dating
OK, here's a set of tips for women on internet dating, based on actual personal experience.

When setting up the profile:

Make sure your actual age is the age listed. Guys may not be real smart, but nothing KILLS (in a serious, terminate with extreme prejudice, U.S. vs. Abu Musab Al Zarqawi kind of way as seen at www.break.com/index/baddayzarq.html) a first date quicker than finding out your date is both OLDER and LESS HONEST than initially thought.

If your friends look JUST LIKE YOU, (a frighteningly common occurence in L.A.), don't put multiple group photos of them with you in your profile, as we hate having to guess which one you are.

No shots of you drinking. Definitely not 3 or more shots of you drinking.

The date itself:

Do not announce, after your date has already made plans to meet for glorious burritos and guacamole that he has been craving all day, that you do not eat after 7pm and would therefore prefer to find a Starbucks, Satan's own portal into the earthly realm. (Yes, that's why there are so many of them.)

If you are a hardcore christian, do not make a date with an atheist thinking that you will be extra clever and convert him. Most of us non-believers aren't going to be obnoxious about it, but we ARE members of the fastest growing belief system, and given that we have logic and common sense on our side, we're more likely to convert you than vice-versa.

Especially do not do both of the above on the same date. Doing so gives your date fond thoughts of the Romans and their pet lions.

If we meet in a restaurant that's at a normal room temperature, then please take off your winter coat. Especially if the coat or a similar garment has been in all of your profile photos. You don't have to disrobe completely, but it's odd if you're bundled up while eating. (Unless of course, you're covering up a body so guivering with smoldering passion that you need it on as a reminder to keep yourself from ravishing your date right then and there. Note to self: Call this one back.)

The follow up:

Do not call or text your date to explain what a fantastic time you had, only to refuse to return his follow-up call. If you're done, DON'T CALL. (Guys, if she doesn't return the second call, give up.)

Do not send an e-mail with an itemized series of paragraphs as to why your date is a bad person and why things would never work out between the two of you after the FIRST DATE.

But none of you b3ta ladies would ever do such things, so this post is wholly pointless.

(That said, should any of you ladies fancy a fairly tall and enormously fat man with a dubious sense of humor who's trying to overcome his inability to remain employed for more than a few months at a time, you know how to reach me. Don't all reach for the keyboard at once.)

Take a leaf out of Martin Luther King Jr.'s book
He reckoned if a certain demographic is legally forbidden from doing something, that the best way to bring about social change was through peaceful protest, not violence. That way your opponents have nothing to pin on you.

So, as he opined, don't use violence as a protest method...

or you won't foil the ban, he thought.

When broadcasting a supposedly "live" interview at 08:14 in the morning, according to your own on-screen clock and ident, make sure that the interviewee isn't standing in front of the clock tower at the Palace of Westminster. Otherwise, it gives away to your viewers that you're lying and your supposedly "live" interview isn't live at all. It also encourages your viewers to wonder just how much of your output is truthful when you're willing to lie about something so trivial.

Further to my tip below
about chilled water www.b3ta.com/questions/toptips/post772200, a word of warning. If doing this in a standard tumbler rather than a water bottle, don't use too much ice. You'll be swigging off the ice-cold water and be tipping the glass up further and further. But there's the risk that the ice will wedge in the bottom of the glass and water will build up behind it like some sort of micro-glacial lake. As you tip the glass up to get what you think is the last of the water, the ice will dislodge and the rest of the very cold water will tip over your chin, down your neck and down the inside of your shirt onto your chest.

This will take you by surprise and you will squeal like a big girl

If you buy a thick rump steak it can cost about 4 quid, quite off puttingly expensive,
if you buy a fairly small rump joint and cut it into 4 steaks they work out at about half the price.

Sear them on both sides in a very hot pan with just a teeny bit of oil for 1 minute per side if you want it rare, 2 for medium rare, 3 for cooked thru, 4 for well done, then put them into a tin foil wrap for 3-5 minutes, they will finish cooking and relax to a melt in the mouth steak releasing lots of juicy tasty 'gravy'.

Serve with chips, fried onions (you can cook em as the steaks rest), and a little English mustard on the side, pepper and salt to taste, every bite is heaven, impressing the entire family with your culinary skills!

Free Surround Sound
Got an extra pair of speakers kicking about doing nothing, well, if you have sufficient speaker cable you can hook them up behind your listening position for free surround sound.

Ten tips for budding authors
1. Write every day, even if it is only for half an hour.

2. Always keep a notebook / dictaphone handy, at all times - you never know when an idea will strike (I sometimes use the notes or voice recording feature on my mobile for this).

3. NEVER TELL anyone your story ideas! Or if you have to keep it general, i.e. "it's sf / noir / historical etc." If you tell someone your idea, your subconscious will have already told the story, and by the time you come to write it you'll find yourself drained of all enthusiasm for it

4. Join a writers' group. Peer review is invaluable.

5. Be prepared to accept harsh criticism but don't take it personally - unfortunately, this can only be learned by experience.

6. But remember that you don't have to take any and all advice - it's your story, after all. If several people tell you the same thing, i.e., the scene's too slow, plot holes, etc, then you can be pretty sure what to fix, but be wary of listening to too many people. Send your work to a couple of trusted fellow writers or members of your writers' group.

7. Show don't tell.

8. Always stay inside the POV of your character. Some authors don't do this, e.g. Frank Herbert in Dune, but you're not Frank Herbert - yet.

9. Try to avoid cliches - like the plague. Think of new ways to say things.

10. Unless you're independently wealthy, don't give up the day job.

chocolate hostage
if your like me and your not too keen on sitting on other peoples toilet seats, whether they be scummy public toilets or just not your own, i have developed a habit that i do every time i drop off a chocolate hostage. often in the past i used to resort to the very uncomfortable and unreliable "hover" over the bowl technique, sitting on my hands, laying toilet paper out neatly covering the toilet seat, or just braving the chill factor and just going bare-assed.

i told my mates this and they just laughed but i think its a stroke of genius. simple really... when you pull your trousers down about to take said shit... dont pull your boxers down all the way. you can easily pull your underwear down half way, sit on them and not shit yourself. if you have a penis, like me, you can tuck it under your underwear so it is facing in the bowl. because we all know when you take a shit that little bit of piss comes out too.

it saves time, its comfortable.

Then do about 10 transactions. Really slowly. And keep making mistakes. Make sure you get a useless receipt for everything. Then take 5 minutes putting everything back on your pockets. Then do a sort of half-turn, keeping your eyes on the machine for about 20 seconds as if it was an alien. Then fuck off.

Management consultants or people with degrees in "management" or "business studies".
Stick a big pineapple into your rectum rather violently. This should give you some idea of how people feel about you and what you're doing to the company. For added effect, stick a hungry leech to your neck.

Please also consider going back to university and studying a proper subject.

N.B: If none of the above helps you, then, at least, it'll provide the rest of the working public a damn good laugh at your expense.

Many sets of cutlery have two different sizes.
There's big forks and little forks; big knives and little knives. For main course and dessert, I suppose, if you're posh.

A common mistake is to sort these in your cutlery drawer by having one space for knives and one space for forks.

A far better solution is to have one space for big cutlery and one for little.

This way it's much easier to retrieve a big knife and a big fork, since it's easier to distinguish a knife from a fork than it is to distinguish a big knife from a little knife.

This should tell you what is actually wrong and you should only get charged for what's gone wrong (and in some cases clearing it turns off the lamp and you get no more trouble). DTC read and clear costs £25-£40 but you'll be paying that anyway.

*Only for people who like popcorn*

If you have a cinema where popcorn is self service. Go and take a bag of sweets e.g. minstrels, get an empty popcorn box, start putting popcorn in it, drop the bag of sweets in the popcorn box, keep filling it up to the top.

Pay for the popcorn with bag of sweets inside. Go into your film and eat the popcorn until you reveal your bag of sweets.

If you're trying to learn the bassline from a song but are finding it hard to hear under vocals/guitar/etc, put the song on fairly loud in an upstairs room, put the speakers on the floor, and go and listen from downstairs.

Similarly, I always find it easier to pick out guitar parts obscured by other parts by playing the song and leaving the room (with the door left open). Somehow guitar always seems to carry through rooms better than everything else.

And another one, sometimes playing the song on headphones and removing one headphone will help (as long as the song is in stereo, natch).

Trying to lose weight?
Muscle tissue is metabolically active. What that means is that it uses energy even in a resting state. Each kg of muscle tissue uses 30 - 50 kcals a day just sitting still.

Also, lifting weights causes you to use more kcals over the next 12-24 hours, as it requires a lot of energy to synthesise the proteins neccessary to repair the damaged tissue (while the effects of cardio-vascular exercise lasts only 2 hours or so). So overall reistence (lifting weights) training is about the best kcal burning exercise there is.

Make sure to incorporate a good weight lifting routine into your exercise plan. This goes for girls too - don't worry, you won't get all big and bulky, ladies, unless you take steroids, as women just don't have high enough testosterone levels to get big just by lifting weights. Lift weights if you want to look like the girls from Eric Prydz "Call on Me" video (I wish my missus did).

Simple. Just buy a 'delicious' prawn deli sandwich from Ainsley's bakery (preferably the one on Manor Road, Leeds city centre). Then inspect the 'food' for the INEVITABLE hair (oft baked right into the bread) and place at the scene of the crime. Et voila! DNA which doesn't match yours.

Here’s a brilliant tip for those of you that like dunking biscuits but don’t like the nasty biscuity crumb mush that you get at the bottom of your mug after serial dunking.

Get a Twix, take finger number one, nibble off each end, put one end into your tea or coffee (best done when the mug/cup is fairly full but not scortchingly hot), then use the Twix finger as a straw to suck up some tea/coffee. This is where not having it too hot comes in handy – though the biscuit does cool the liquid somewhat. Next, remove the Twix from the drink and hold horizontally, with the toffee bit underneath. You will observe that the chocolate on the underside of the Twix (now uppermost) has started to melt. This should be soft enough to actually lick away from the toffee section of the Twix, once denuded of biscuit, you can (if you wish) roll up the toffee section with its chocolate coating and pop it into your mouth in one go. Mmmmmm.

Once you have completed the first sequence, take a sip or two of tea/coffee to clear your palate and repeat, with finger number two.

Finally, do a little mock salute and say out loud “Thank you Che, you are the king of biscuit dunkers”.

Edit: Once a certain degree of expertise has been achieved, try it on a Viscount biscuit. A bit trickier, but well worth the effort.

Tip of the week
In case you should ever forget the awesome power of gravity...here is something I discovered as an adolescent Che, and have been indulging in ever since, though less lately.

At the end of a nice bath, let the water go nice and still, lie serene and find a position in which you can completely relax, arms by sides is best, rather than on top of stomach. Then, sit up, pull out the plug and immediately return to 'relaxed position'. Then just wait for the awesome power of gravity to make itself felt.

Seriously - this is far more impressive than I can easily convey. As the water drains away you first sink down to the bottom of the bath, then your arms drop, your legs become heavy, your body settles on the bottom and gains weight second by second. DON'T MOVE an inch until ALL of the water has gone, gurgling down the plug hole, you will find your heart beating faster, breathing becomes more difficult even.

I used to do this after smoking a joint or having a beer or two, but these are not necessary at all - best to have some music or the radio on though, otherwise people will wonder what you're up to.

Try it this weekend and let me know how you get on.

Having a dumb ass arguement with friends/family/significant other?

Simply say "Oh shut up", or "Yes OK" in a patronising manner. For added effect, shake your head dismissively or possibly walk away. Under no circumstances DO NOT be tempted to argue back, not matter how much the other person goads you.

My GF's Mum does this, and it's IMPOSSIBLE to argue with her. It will wind the person up even more as you are not participating in the arguement whatsoever.

Beelieve it!
Ever wanted a small Bee as your pet?
Realised that it will probably fly away when you go out on walks?
Wondering how you will keep the pesky little critter under wraps?

Well I have a solution for you!
Capture one Bee and pop him/her into a jar that you can seal up, put said jar into the fridge for about 15 minutes so that bee can chill out and stop trying to fly away.
Take your Bee out of the fridge, open the jar and tie a small piece of sewing thread around the little stinging bastard and hey presto! Your Bee is on a leash so it can't bugger off and you can have fun being its master and flying it around!

(Please note: if you tie the thread too tight you might chop your bee in half, this would be sad, so watch out)

more culinary tips
- the fastest way to peel a lump of ginger is with a teaspoon (just scrape away with the end of the spoon and it'll all come off easily rather than losing half the lump by using a knife).

- fastest way to peel garlic is to put a clove under a flat blade, hit the blade with the base of your palm, chop the bottom off and the skin should pull straight off.

- whole punnet of cherry tomatoes + balsamic vinegar + salt + olive oil + roast in oven for an hour or so = easiest way to make you look like a genius in the kitchen. goes with everything pretty much.

- if you pay less than £5 for a chicken, it'll taste like shit (or nothing).

Mother's Advice
1) When in doubt, belt up and listen.
2) Always bake biscuits, cakes, and cookies on the highest rack possible in the oven (with a pan of water on the lower rack if it's a loaf that you don't want to scorch on the bottom.) When baking pies, put them on the middle rack and halfway through the cooking time place a ring of tinfoil over the edge to protect it from burning while the rest of the pie bakes.
3) If you're on the verge of a nervous breakdown, don't listen to Radiohead ("Paranoid Android" is especially perilous.)
4) Ask for help. You'll usually get it.
5) To quickly and effortlessly mix a Christmas duff with the consistency of cement, use an electric mixer - but NOT with the regular beaters (which would burn out the motor.) Use the dough hook (fairly inexpensive to purchase and will save you from breaking wooden spoons in half and/or pulling a muscle.)
