    Planned anti-gay demo falls flat

    Ice Skating

    OK, who here is an ice skater? I used to skate (badly) many years ago but haven't done any for the last 18+ years. I've just started again as it's an excellent way to keep fit. Until you get onto the more advanced jumps it's a low impact activity and can burn 600 calories an hour, which is a...

    Yay! I've got a date for surgery!

    I've had a long catalogue of health problems which I haven't had much luck getting sorted out. Just over a year ago, I ended up tearing the lining to my anus (anal fissure) due to being rather blocked up as a result of long term underactive thyroid (which took five years for my GP to do...

    Happy Birthday Charles Darwin - 200 today!

    Today, 12th February 2009, is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. I'll drink to that (but then again, I'll drink to anything ) Creationists may prefer to drink to Abraham Lincoln instead. It's his 200th birthday today too. Teetotal creationists? I'm not sure what they can do...

    Dancing on Ice

    OK, hands up, who watches this? I've recently started ice skating again after not having been on the ice in 18+ years but it's nothing to do with Dancing on Ice. I'm skating again because it's an amazing way to get fit as it can burn 600 calories an hour and I also love it. I've just started...

    Video of hilariously bad driving

    This had me laughing so hard I was crying. It's a bit unfair as it claims it's women drivers but I know that the Range Rover which drives into a snow covered pond was definitely driven by a man - I've seen the full clip of that. Others where we don't see the driver may well have been men too...

    London gets snow!

    Yay! We now have snow in London, England. I was out last night and the roads were treacherous with even buses getting stuck on main roads and lots of accidents. I took a photo of my car at about 8am this morning - there's been even more snow since then. I'm about to drive across London

    Hearing voices? Seeing ghosts? Blame the coffee

    Quote: People who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices, UK research has suggested. [Link] Well, I've tried, damn how I've tried. 32 espressos a day (over 3g of caffeine) and still yet to see a ghost! The only thing vast amounts of caffeine...

    Car crash of the day....

    I crashed my car today. Well, actually, someone else crashed into my car today I was sitting at the petrol (gas in US language) station waiting for a pump to become free. I'd got the engine running as it was cold but wasn't moving and had the handbrake on (it's a manual/stick shift rather...

    caffn8me is back

    Well, it's a new year and I'm back. I'd like to apologize to everyone for my sudden disappearance a while back. Those with long memories (very long ones) will know that I was very much involved in the Counterfeit Forum once upon a time. I vanished because something very unpleasant happened...

    Wakeup Art Cosmetics - W·A·C

    I've just had a good friend visit me in London. She is a US citizen but she works in Hong Kong. China is the counterfeit capital of the world and this year's hottest items are Woschino bags. They're easily exported from the country because nobody's heard of Woschino. Once safely in places...
