    Osmiroids were the "greasy kids' stuff"

    I feel soiled. :-(
    Although I do admit to being a little greasy at the moment owing to a failed attempt to fix my scrub bar. All is not as bad as it seems though, I now have an excuse to buy one of these. The Stihl FS 550

    his fountain pen

    does anyone still use one?

    When I started at the big school, 11 years old and full of it, we were expected to purchase an Osmaroid 65 fountain pen, they were specific about the make and model.
    I wondered at the time whether the Headmaster had shares in the company and thus began my suspicions of conspiracy, the fountain pen, which if I remember correctly had to have a number 2 italic nib, did a rather good job of squirting ink when you pulled the filler lever, hence, I thought, Fountain Pen. Anyway, it was very good for marking teachers as you passed them in the halls. Yes, we were little shits like that.

    - saves them having to pay for bandwidth to send all that data back to the US

    I doubt if payments are the problem. Ironically it is more likely a "Privacy" consideration.

    maybe I need another cell provider

    That's why I am with Kraps (name encrypted for security) you know, the one with the cat's arse for a logo.
    Damn, someone might be able to decipher that. ;-)

    A question that has been bugging me for a while. What, exactly, does the "Prime Minister's Hat" look like?
    Is it kind of multi coloured and spikey with bells on it?.

    Somewhat tired of this old chestnut. There is nothing more real about a street than an online community.

    You really should get out more often, there's stuff out in the streets, like trees an' shit, maybe even chestnut trees.
