Philosophy

I was listening to an interview with an ageing (not very good) pop singer from the 70s trying to make a comeback whilst being really far up his own arse. His excuse for not working for the last 30 years was he had to "find himself".

I thought, I'm important enough for that, so went on a quest. It turned out I found myself after a short search sitting on my chair in front of the telly. Rolling Eyes

Have you ever had to do this?

being a celeb in the 70's he likely found himself molesting a child.

Constantly.

….........I haven't work for thirty years because believe it or not, I've been stuck down the back of a sofa! I was only when my daughter, before putting it in the skip, cut the bottom open searching for change. Incidentally, I have spent the 30yrs eating crumbs and scraps, with only;

37 1/2p,

a fork,

two toy cars,

a Lego™ brick,

a knitting needle and

a 3/8" whitworth bolt for company!!

Oh shit!! Here come the Rozzers, back in a sofa for me!!

Not quite a hundred!

Just have far too much experience of old Land Rovers™ and other crap British machinery!

Funny how you always end up with a knitting needle down you sofa, despite noone in your household ever having knitted! Question

To be honest as a kid the toy I played with more than any other was Lego.
When I started work (On a YTS - anyone else remember those) Whitworth was common and 1/2p's were very much in use. The pubs I used to frequent while trying to get laid and generally have a good time are now mostly car parks or houses.. Infact I might be the oldest here....

If anyone should need any tips on how to piss oneself off before the day even got started properly just give me a shout.

When I left school in North Yorkshire, there was little work, and I was enrolled on a YTS scheme. For 36 hours a week I received £23:50, most of which i spent on fags, booze and women, the rest I just wasted!!!

Blimey! I must be old. I left school at 15, there was no YTS, I enrolled on an apprenticeship and got 12.50 a week. I paid for the HP on a moped and beer, fags (women didn't like me, they still don't) rent to my mom and still had change for lunch.

Yer tell young people that today.....
Mike

Very Happy

Feel so much better now.

I can just remember the 1/2p

Being totally confused as to why my 1/2p chewy sweetie now had a value of 1p, that was most important to me as a small child!

Very Happy

I have bags of 1/2 p pieces sitting around along with a piggy bank full of pre decimal stuff somewhere oooh the shame of getting over the hump  Shocked

I've just remembered, it was 19p for a pint of mild and about 37p for a gallon of petrol at the time. Just to give an idea of the effect of inflation.

Decimalisation happened when I was about 8.

Pint of Mild


You don't hear that asked for much these days.... At least not round here.

When I was exceedingly young they were still using farthings in the village shop. Mainly for sweets.
The dairy in the village belonged to the local farming family, Fewster by name, and Mrs Fewster used to make butter from their cow's milk and sell that, milk, cream and eggs. The dairy was open for about 2 hours in the very early morning and if you missed them you had to do without. Nobody in the village had a fridge, just the pantry and meatsafe.

I was only reading a thread on facebook last night from people who work all day and can't find time to eat real food so live on fast food, it may me sit and wonder how they would of managed when a working day was hard graft and 12 hours plus, transport was at the end of your legs and fast food didn't exist.

Ha. I've no idea how they think this makes sense. It does, however, bear out the theory that 'you are what you eat', they live this crazy, fast, global life while sitting at a desk. They eat crazy, rubbish food.
I eat carrots, neaps and tatties. I am a vegetable.
