On the jacket/coat theme:

After a new North Face jacket for Christmas, best place to go? Got my current one from that place next to Triple S on Grainger Street, forget it's name, T_ _o?

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

my first car.  Been insured on me mams before, but the time has come to buy my own.  My budget is about £2,000, but hopefully I'll knock a couple of hundred off as I can pay cash.  I fancy a VW Polo, similar to this that is on autotrader...



however it all depends on insurance costs.  I'm under 25 and as a 'sometimes driver' up until now, I've not got my own no claims.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

In my experience it's mainly posh kids that wear the North Face.

There was a parody of it a few years ago that said 'North East', wish I'd got one of those tshirts.

I've found Great Outdoors at BM to be very reasonable with their prices.

I'm sure we've had a million threads on this, but I need to buy a new laptop. Any suggestions? Not expecting top drawer, but just the best I can get for max 400 quid. Amazing that for someone that's used computers and laptops non-stop for over half their life, I still know f*** all about what to look for spec-wise when getting a new one.

Only the vespa, which I probably don't need anyway.

I want a shirt which I can go out in, I don't usually wear them like. Something that isn't charvy at all mind or too spice boyish, any suggestions on where to look?
