    Yes, child control can be difficult.

    Send them to boarding school.

    There is a lot of misinformation about foxes, in all honesty they can make the difference between profit and loss on a small sheep farm by killing newborn lambs. But, and it is a huge but, hunting is an inefficient method of fox control and as bloody stupid as morris dancing. Worse, the hunting fraternity have been known to insist that no other form of control is allowed on their tenant farms. Nobody in the country wants to see every fox shot, but when it is your livelihood shooting becomes necessary. Blatting around on an expensive charger in ludicrous clothing is not fox control, it is barbarous idiocy.

    I didn't think for a second that you were being a dick. I have seen, condemned and rebuilt far worse carpentry than yours. But, if you pass a skip with slabs in it, pretty please at least put them on the corners, it would be a waste of your time and effort to see your decking slump gently into the ground when the weather gets moist and a fat bloke stands on the edge.

    Sorry, but you're going to have problems with your decking. The supports should be 4" posts concreted 2' into the ground. At very least, jack it up and replace the bricks with 18" slabs to spread the load. Also, get some weedproof permeable membrane and put it under the entire deck or you'll have grass growing up through the gaps. If you would like any free advice, send me a PM with your number and I'll give you a bell. PS: I build deckings for a living....

    That was a response to DJ's pop at the dear departed #Saarf, their feud was long and frequently amusing.

    #keepitmencap: if you won the lottery you could also afford a sharpie (and a man to use it for you). Surely the biggest worry about the wallet-emptier wheels is the impossibility of repair.

    You mean 'less worse', or 'ghastly rather than hideous'.

    If #dancingjames was still on here, he'd put that in Modern Bike Porn....

    As that is Boonen's last Paris Roubaix bike, I shouldn't imagine he would give a flying fuck about our comments on his choice of seatpin or bars, I would think by now he would know what he wants and fits him....

    DJ, will you please stop running to teacher whenever an utter prat is making a fool of themselves, some of us enjoy watching suicide-by-social-media!

    A big thumbs-up to @cybernck, 3 days from payment to delivery isn't bad in the UK, but is pretty stunning from Banja Luka! The front mech was exactly as described, with bonus honesty about a minute fault invisible on the photo.
