    Asked where I might find the 30" waist troosers recently, only to be told that 30" waist is now 'outsize' at M&S.

    Any mileage in hanging on to the cliff edge and dangling for a bit? Smoke rises, you are maybe shielded from the heat a bit. You may not have to dangle, there could be a wee crevice to lodge in.

    Bristol is pretty good for gentle eating too.

    People who gradually raise the volume of their voice as they anticipate answers to their stupid questions. Do you want an answer?, or even a conversation?, or shall I just shout back in your ignorant mouth-breather face?

    Thought as much, it's the Golden Rectangle ratio formula. Fascinating.

    The VT Musicians Thread

    That is all truly fascinating. I know a little self taught theory and have put it into practice with really good results, all based on jazz cycle of fifths, and the relationship between roots, thirds and fifths (bass player). It also helps understand that weird feeling when playing a fretless bass and getting the notes sweeter by rolling the fretting finger up or down a little. Maths, music, nature, vibrations. What is the golden mean????

    Went through a brief period of having the 3 lower strings tuned to D major, and the 3 higher strings tuned to G major. You'd have loved it

    Played a bit of open G tuning tonight on my guitar, nothing new there really, until the Youtube fella said, " Flatten the B string just a touch". Sounds absolutely ace.

    Emails that start with "Good Morning". Sometimes abbreviated to 'GM'.

    Shame Ahameed doesn't post here anymore, he is a Cardiothoracic Surgeon, will be a Consultant by now. He would have given the best advice. He was an angry b*st*rd though and did not like being tickled. Hope there's nothing going on with the old ticker.

    Get it checked out anyway Stefan, there are some nasty arrhythmias that'll give you a pulse down there. No other symptoms??? If you have any chest pain, shortness of breath, lethargy, I should go and see a Dr. But ye, you're probably fit like Mike says.

    Ye I lost like a layer of fat from under my skin all over my body. I was just generally more thin. I didn't, and don't, particularly like it though.

    I have been rumbled. Did the permanent erection give it away?
