Posted:The other day, whilst taking a munchies break from playing Timesplitters2 for the umpteenth time, i came across a dilema.

I had a big bottle of ribena in my left hand with 2 glasses, and a pot of nutella and a loaf of bread in the other.

As i went ot leave the room in the usual fashion (walking out of the door and turning the light off), i went to turn of the switch, only to find to my amazement, that my hands were full, thus meaning I would have to find a new way to turn the light off.

I stood there pondering for some 10 minutes before I realised that by moving my head forwards sharply, I would be able to strike the switch, mounted on the wall, at he right angle in order to turn it off.

I decided my plan was a good one and that i should try it...and guess what!!!!

It worked first time!

I then proceeded to return to my previous state of Timesplitering, and entered a room full of people who were all oblivious to the feat of cunning and skill I had pefromed not 20 seconds ago.

So in conclusion, light switches can be operated using your forehead, instead of your hands....and foreheads are very useful in general, otherwise it would be very messy.

My mate adam found that throwing arrorted objects which hit the light switch also turns off the light


In a student house there is always light reading situated in the toilet walls and silly magnect images on the fridge friges are cool ubbrollsmile

I have always wondered why we think rubbing the forhead enables you to think deeper

Posted:we were at my friend's hosue one night and in his garden there was a massive, and i mean MASSIVE cucumber (or was is a zuccini? no, i think it was a cucumber...) so one of my other friends (the doofy lovable silly one...we all know the kind!) decided to smash it on his head.

now this cucumber was this wide *makes circle with thumbs and fore-fingers* and over a foot long, and he decide to introduce it to his forhead...

he stood with his feet at shoulder distance apart, lent forward and brought the cucumber hard against his forhead...but it didnt break!

he shook his head as if in a daze beforere-adjusting his position.

the second time, he brought the cucumber to his forhead and the cucumber broke clean through at the point where it hit his head and the broken part went sailing over his head!


i would have changed ***** to phallus, and claire to petey Petey

Rougie: but that's what I'm doing here

Indeed!! feet are well useful, of course in the majority of cases you need to master the art of standing on just the one of them, and unless you're a gymnast, don't attempt the lightswitches.

Foreheads ARE good for lightswitches, as are noses, however I have been caught out in the past by a couple which did not have a great enough surface area for hitting and/or are a bit tougher than your average switch. in that situation the only solution is to resort to an elbow or chin, given that there is a greater chance of missing with your forehead and headbutting the wall, and your nose is probably slightly too squishy to apply enough pressure to said lightswitch. If it happens to be a pullstring lightswitch, then teeth work great, but if it's in a toilet you may want to avoid this as you don't really know who's walked and who's washed, if you know what i mean....

how do i know all this? well it comes from years of experience of attempting to get places with numerous cups of tea or with some sort of crap (not literally, y'know paint or glue or newsprint or something...) all over my hands. it means my elbows are also pretty dextrous when it comes to turning on taps too.

I can turn the lightswitches on and off with my feet down stairs in my house but not upstairs. When my house was rewired a very tall electrician did it. On the day he did down stairs I was present and pointed to where I wanted the swithches. The day he did upstairs I wasn't there............. He put them at GIANTMAN height. Two of them are above (my) head height. Bar doing a flying ninja kick I don't think I could reach them with my feet! ubbrollsmile

Posted:good planning! all mine are sort of normalish height but it's an older house so it has high ceilings and the lightswitches are slightly further up the wall... i did manage to do it a couple of times where we have those easy push giant switch switches, not whilst carrying tea though...

I've just been looking at the house gymnastics site! i think i've been inadvertantly practising for a while, but without the photographic documentation... perhaps I should turn 'pro'.... ubblol
The one thing that alarms me is that a few too many of their moves involve banisters - i can't do banisters, i can hardly lean on them normally without getting visions of the whole damn thing collapsing thus sending me plummeting to my doom....

yea, i was just thinking the same thing. theres definately an unhealthy banister fixation.
I don't even have banisters, I live in a flat.

as for my forehead, that is exclusively used to break hard-boiled eggs.
