Posted:On an equally stupid note :

Went to a rave type thingy in holland where we all piled out onto a motorway in the middle of a friday afternoon. Blocked traffic all day. It was a very cool party, but....
It was meant as a protest to the polution caused by cars and the fact that not enough car pooling was happening. A noble cause. The festivaties consisted of four big old soundsystems pumpimg out funky sounds. Very cool. Unfortuantly big old soundsystems need big old power sources so they decicded to drag 4 big old trucks which they let run the whole day. Which was also pumping out something funky. They also caused one of the biggest traffic jams in some time. They really got one back for mother nature there, but it was a good day.

Also on the party note : On some history of trance CD, a sexy, profound voice over, "I dont like uncomfortable silences...." hmmm I dont like uncomfortable armchairs

As a kid wise words of warning from parent or teacher figures,
"Were you smoking in the hayshed....."
"Dont jump off the roof....." a personal favourite
"If he dosnt own up you will all be suspened for two days.." He did'nt, we were, and we all thought it was great. The crime in question was someone drawing a very nasty picture of one of the teachers on the toilet door. The diciplinary action suddenly spurred up alot of artistic sanitary endevours.

Come forth and thou shalt win enternal happiness. but he came fifth so he won an electric toatser.

Posted:On hairdryers it already does say do not use near water.

*wonders if some people get paid to write obvious stuff like that*

Then again, you know that someone will do that stuff on purpose, then sue the company saying that "Ohh! But it didn't say that on the box!"

Posted:On Raid ant killer blocks, it declares that it 'KILLS BUGS DEAD'.. Which is daft in itself.. but then goes on to say that it only kills ants for 3 months after which they do what exactly?

My GF and I are looking for a new flat in Soton, and saw and advert which said:

'2 large bedrooms with access to the M27'

Access to an en suite would have been preferable.
