    Also, forgetting to mention our championing of the Breakfast was a flaw, though I'd give cheese to the Swiss, ours is more basic.

    I'd also love to claim the sport cheese rolling on that note, it's awesome take a look (it's not boring as the name suggests):

    This may be the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life.

    Thanks Serious_Much! I have it tattooed on my shoulder. I used to live there and still have family there.

    My Granddad supported them, was lucky enough to live in the time when they won the European Cup

    I don't want to hijack this thread for football talk, but those were the good old days. We're a long ways off from that now :pale:

    For organized events there's a competition near where I live where everyone builds the best sleds they can out of cardboard and then go down a big hill. Some of the more elaborate ones are more like parade floats than sleds.

    Oh yeah.....and Polar Bear groups. I've done one in Rochester, NY twice to help raise money for Special Olympics

    Hahaha, in PA, we drive south to buy good ones. Although for the first time ever, I just saw mortars being sold. twisted

    I live in PA now and I just get my friend from NJ to come here and get fireworks for me.

    Quarik : Nice!

    Just looked that up Tolvo. I can't believe they stole my name. I've been using it since 1995. Funny stuff though. Can't believe I missed that one...

    Using that name, and that line, and you've never heard of them? I find that a bit hard to believe, what a weird coincidence if so.

    Seriously never. I'll listen now though. Got mine from Yog Sothoth. Shortened it to Yog because I could only put 3 chars in at the arcade.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Azathoth is my favourite. Though I have only seen small excerpts, I really need to pick up some of the actual books.

    Well worth the read. Any of the short story compilations should see you fine.

    The line I recognized from Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports.
