We had The Giant Turd (as it became known) appear in trap 1 at work.

It would disappear around the bend only to re-appear the next day

Maintenance tried unsuccessfully to shift it several times until they dissolved it with some nasty chemical mix

For 4 days it had its moment of fame around the Plant

Who laid it remained a mystery

 :like:

 :alf:

We had a similar thing when I was working in Blackburn. A fucking massive turd which would flush but resurface a while later.
I wish I could say that it was me who came up with the name for it but it was my boss at the time who christened it "Das Boot".

It was because the game wasn't meant to be televised but due to Bolton's game (which was supposed to be on TV) being postponed they shifted the TV game to Maine Road.
Boro's away kit had advertising on it and this wasn't allowed on TV at the time, they had a different set of kits for TV games.  Man Utd were contacted and they loaned Boro the strip.

What about the numerous SMEs that have closed due to COVID, were the people who owned them "working class".
I'm not sure the demographics of the 1950's can reasonably by applied by broad brush anymore.

The survey of class demographics performed in 2017 (Manchester Uni, York Uni, & LSE) produced results suggesting that there are seven perceived "classes" -

Wealthy "elite"
Prosperous salaried "middle class"
Technical experts
New affluent workers
Emergent Service workers
Ageing "traditional working class"
A "Precariat" with lasting precarious economic security

The modern GSD with the banana backs are certainly a poor relation to the old fashioned flat-backed "schutzhund" types which were the norm in the 70's and 80's.
My last GSD Zak was flat-backed and broad weighing in at around 48kg and I had a lovely big Royvon bred dog back in the 80's who lived to the ripe old age of 14 years and 10 months.

I bin mine after every usage and yet i see some people wearing the same one's time after time.

I have thought about a "build up" on the same mask....

The build up will take only a few breaths.

What is the difference then for the masks that say builders wear?

Would it not be the same on them one's ?

Those ones.
Yes, of course it would, they often suffer from "maskne"

Just lost a trade marking case against a Swiss watch maker that were using his surname....


The judges dismissed it when the watchmaker pointed out they had been using the Hamilton name since 1892... nearly 100 years before he was born.


What a complete prick he is

Will probably claim they are racist next

Thatís not right. He objected to them trademarking the name Hamilton rather than vice versa. Itís staggering to be that such a common name can be copyrighted.

That is also a slight spin on the truth. He wanted to prevent them receiving trademark protection in Europe because he wanted to launch a line of accessories including watches using his name as the brand.
They have been trading under that name for 130 years.
The greedy little tax avoiding twat will have to try and get by on his current meagre income instead.
32  ComeOnBoro.com / ComeOnBoro.com Message Board / Re: Major peer reviewed study finds masks dont work on: November 20, 2020, 10:10:29 AM
The study did not investigate whether masks prevented those infected with Covid-19 from infecting other people.

That is EXACTLY what they are for, not a watertight, spacesuit effort, just another barrier to stop the spread. Thatís what they do



Quite. And yet some people STILL arenít grasping this.

There is a scientific school of thought which suggests that the wearing of masks would produce a build up of bacteria and possibly the Covid virus on the mask material which is then more likely to be transferred to other surfaces as people inevitably touch their masks frequently.

This mask argument is not as black and white as you suggest.

Go on Tegs!!!
It wasn't a question of legality though, it was a question of identity....he chose to represent Ireland, not Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The argument here was that if you are born in Northern Ireland you are British - yes you are under sovereign law of the UK, but as the GFA states, you can identify as British, Irish or both.

You can but you are British by birth unless you renounce it, he hasnít, he IS British.
Bob was right.
34  ComeOnBoro.com / ComeOnBoro.com Message Board / Re: The Masters on: November 16, 2020, 06:20:02 PM
Terry - a good post mate, however in the context of this argument, it is in need of an update mate - The Northern Ireland Act of 1998 (aka The Good Friday Agreement) does state:

Article 1 of the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) commits British and Irish governments to:

Örecognise the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to identify themselves and be accepted as Irish or British, or both, as they may so choose, and accordingly confirm that their right to hold both British and Irish citizenship is accepted by both Governments and would not be affected by any future change in the status of Northern Ireland.


Rory represented Ireland, ergo making the statement that he is Irish, no?

Johnny Thunder - hit me with another one of those slam dunks please fella  mcl


Wrong (and no trawling required, I hold an Irish passport myself, I'm fully aware of the issues with this)

The Good Friday Agreement has not changed the British Nationality Act. There is in fact still some disquiet that the "Belfast Agreement" didn't go as far as to change the requirement for a person born in Northern Ireland to  officially renounce their British nationality if they wanted to be only an Irish national, but it wasn't changed and the government has stated that it has no plans to change it.

So, just to be clear if someone is born in Northern Ireland they are legally a British Citizen.
They will remain so unless they officially renounce it.
McIlroy has not, ergo he is British.

Now with regards to Rory McIlroy (and indeed Rory Best) choosing to play for Ireland; this has absolutely no legal relevance to their nationality, none.
Rory McIlroy has said that he feels British, that's good, because he is.
Rory Best has, as I've shown already stated unequivocally that he is British, also good because he also is British.

Now, here's the kicker - Bob was right.

36  ComeOnBoro.com / ComeOnBoro.com Message Board / Re: The Masters on: November 16, 2020, 11:06:32 AM
Just to add some factual background; the British Nationality Act 1981 means that anyone born in Northern Ireland is legally a British Citizen. This is true whether they apply for an Irish passport as well as, or instead of a UK passport, they are British Citizens.
They can choose to renounce their British citizenship which would remove this legal status. Rory McIlroy has not renounced his British citizenship.
In an interview in 2012 he said that he "always felt more British than IrishĒ

He has (rightly) tried very hard to keep politics and religion out of his golfing career, growing up Catholic in protestant Holywood might have helped produce this attitude.
He did choose to play for Ireland at the 2016 Olympics, as is his right. He remains though, legally British.
