    Yeah, but they're all commies that live in a communist utopia, so presumably they're all blissfully happy. On the other hand I'm slogging away to single-handedly try and keep this country out of a triple-dip whilst you shirkers are all having weekends and days off.

    Oh well, day off on Saturday; fifty-three days of consecutive work, and to think my parents said I was lazy!

    Hardly. I've been contracted by the archaeological section at the local council to work on two projects and as they're both relatively short-term I have to keep going to my permanent part-time job at the weekends.

    Since they dug up Dicky 3 councils have been going mental on their archeology budgets.

    Almost. If the Ark was Grey Literature and the Holy Grail was non-conformist chapels. The first is even less exciting than it sounds, whereas the second is actually really interesting.

    And both projects were conceived before Dicky III's exhumation - I'm legit, not some stinking archaeo-newb.

    Yesterday I cycled 20km including going up the steepest hill I know, bought a crate of beer then cycled home*.

    * Okay, so the steepest hill is only about 20m end to end, but those 20m are /steep/, man. Also, the place I bought the beer from is one of my local supermarkets, so only had to cycle a couple of clicks carrying it.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Sorry mal, there's nothing manly about cycling. Had you driven it might be another story.

    I've built a bike frame using an Oxy-Acetylene torch. I would say dealing with a 3,500 Degrees C flame 10cm from your hands is somewhat manly.

    Certainly a bit more manly than driving down the shops, probably tuned in to Heart.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    @Immaterial Right when you least expect it. Shaved legs and the soft touch of merino.

    Cleaned out all the u-bend pipes under the sinks today. I pulled out a dead rodent of some kind out of the en-suite. *shudders* D: Serves me right for waiting so long to do it :(

    Got in my boat today, went up the river with a chainsaw and cut down a few trees. Loaded up the boat, came back, unloaded the timber and now sorted for firewood.

    Yea, I really need to do that. Don't think there's any dead rodents though...

    I cleared the drain outside our kitchen earlier. Fucking thing always gets clogged up and I spent half my lunchbreak ramming rods down the thing to shift the blockage. Got covered in stinking gunk, but it's clear!

    @Razz Was that the result of an fatal (for the gerbil) attempt to recreate the alleged Richard Gere experiment?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Depends on what the fall on the waste pipe is. If it is too shallow then it can easily stack up.

    I changed my 20 month old son's nappy just now. He had been backed up for 4 days, did a dirty great boulder, then as I turned round to put the nappy in a bag, he did a second looser one that sprayed over my t-shirt.

    I didn't gag at all.

    /is manly.

    /is now covered in shit.

    I think oil/fat is making its way down there. Plus, it's an old system and there's probably a couple of hundred years of cack down there :)

    My ex brother-in-law's a plumber. He gave me this super-duper clog remover liquid that he told me to be "extremely careful" with. I don't know what the hell that stuff was, but it took care of any clog in seconds.

    I'm pretty sure it had some kind of acid, because it melted a paper towel that I used to wipe the edge of the bottle. It also put a hole in one of my pipes.

    I want more of it, though!

    I don't get it. Despite taking a dead rodent out of the p trap/u-bend pipe. The sink drains really slowly :( Which is in fact an improvement as it didn't drain at all before.

    Yeah, it'll be some kind of sulphuric acid.

    Sulphuric acid isn't available to the general public?
