So when you reach 40 you will have an alternative career open to you.

Kip, about that video....reminds me of some of the positions I used to have to squirm into in order to perform maintenance on the Trident Submarine.  You know, the ones Engineers said 'looks good in the drawings!'  But nevertheless, located in some almost inaccessible space in the 'as-builts.'

Procrastinate that's a good word Gaz :P   my hover is getting one more attempt to see if I can make it better and more reliable than before , If I fail this time its getting crushed as I would not try and pull the wool over anyone  eyes out there by trying to sell it if it was less than perfect in my view.

Yes just as well we are all different Nick the world would be a dull place if we were all the same.

Kip I picked choice B after receiving a few messages last night from 2 members who asked why you had posted that video of a bunch of ballet dancers with their boobs out.. they appear to be as uncultured as me, luckily we are in the minority then.

PS are you insinuating I have personally attacked you on this site ?? if so state your grievances and we will clear this up online so everyone knows what has been said .

I believe that "Nowt to do with Owt" has become a rather positive asset to our forum.
It is a place where we can socialise, chat nonsense, share our hobbies, our passions, our hopes and dreams and is somewhere to chill out for a short while.
When I see a post that says"  What a load of utter arty farty pervy bull 5hite that video is",
my immediate reaction is one of resentment and disappointment.
If you see something you do not like you have 2 choices.
A) Ignore it
B) Make a constructive comment or criticsm.
Being the contributor of that video I believe that I am entitled to take a slightly personal attitude in so far as it implies that I have an interest in pervy videos.
Having been personally attacked, with others, in a previous post from the same person it is perhaps also understandable why I felt a need to reply.
Thanks to all who took the time to tell me that they enjoyed the video ( to a lesser or greater degree) ;D  and helped to restore the status quo.
Please lets all try to play nicely, at least in Nowt,etc

I launched into a long monologue until her eyes glazed over :D  gnf

Sorry lads I must have lead a pretty uncultured life compared to some others on here.

 Still think that video is arty farty pervie bull , but the comment was about the bloody video but its looking like it has been taken personal by someone yet again  :(

Gaz If I had known what you knew when you decided to build your craft I would have got one designed in another country as well , my hover is sitting on its trailer just like all the other O5s out there thanks for asking  ::)
