» Inventions You're Too Lazy To Make

Bah foiled again
I recall when I was ten or so, I thought it would be really cool if food came in magic packaging that cooked the contents when you opened it.

Ten years later, some jammy bastard's finally got it out on the market.

Should have got down the patent office sooner. Bah!

» Mini Cabs From Hell

New Years Day
A bunch of us decided to see in 2004 at the Birmingham Academy's New Years Eve party. Being organised characters we had a 6-seater minibus booked to ferry us home at 2am.

January the first, headed outside, and it was (as it was earlier) freezing rain and very very windy. No matter, we'll be home in no time.

One bollock-shrivelling hour later, the cab turns up. Why so late? Because the driver didn't know where the Birmingham fucking Academy was. He had to stop and ask someone wandering around the street (who he then politely gave a lift somewhere). And when we were on our way back home, we had to bloody direct him how to get out of the city centre!

» Booze Related Disasters

Ahh, free booze
It's nice when people provide a constant stream of alcohol for whatever reason. In one case it was the university tiddlywinks society, trying to attract more members. Being a less popular society they're a bit more liberal with the punch than most. So some friends and I went along to abuse their hospitality

So, several games of tiddlywinks later, we're all in a circle, playing some weird tiddlywinks -related drinking game (I think it may have involved pointing at each other and yelling "John Lennon Memorial Shot!"), when I fell over.

I mean REALLY fell over, as in complete tree-in-forest "TIMBEEERRRRRR!" falling over. I'm 6'6" which added to the cartoon effect.

Apparently they still talk about it in 'winking circles today. Nice to feel that I've added something to the lore of the game.
