    Cheers Filly. I’ll take that kind speculation.

    It’s financial systems, but it’s still niche. I’m closer to Gordon the gopher than Gordon Gecko.

    It’s not really something I like to admit to - it’s not exactly socially acceptable. But we’re all friends here, so why not admit my shame? Sometimes we all must debase ourselves for money - don’t judge me.

    My background is statistics, pure mathematics, and software. So you were very close.

    I spent my youth working in a heavy side builders’ merchants. Driving forklifts/tippers/JCBs, working with ready mix hoppers, that sort of stuff, coupled with maths, is probably what threw you towards engineering as a guess.

    Clever? I’m not so sure.

    Forrest Gump tells us that stupid is as stupid does. Surely then, clever is as clever does? I may sound clever, but I do stupid. I’m certainly not wise in the way that Chippie or KIAB are.

    I’m definitely happy to be described as fun though!
     
  2. That's ok, CGN. Have you said the same to Filly et Deleted member 11267 et IIR?

    Thank you for asking b2 but that is over a week away yet.

    Unfortunately I too have been on the naughty step alongside DA I was released yesterday morning,

    I did have my SF resignation speech typed out as I believed I was unfairly treated:(, I will keep it in notes anyway and may yet have to use it in future:D

    Sorry Facs. The naughty step isn’t too bad though, and you’re right, who they ban can seem arbitrary at times.

    I’ve learnt that there are certain topics which are much more sensitive than others. You all know which topics I’m talking about.
     
  12. Who the hell are you?

  13. What did you say, Facs? (No, I'm not trying to trap you - just wondering what the 'gist' was. It was being rude to other users for me...)

    It was no big deal Filly, As already stated I thought the rap sheet was pretty flimsy, but you don’t get the right to appeal:), come to think of it the Thursday it happened DA caught the same bus as me, but what’s happened to Chippie & Goldenboy, perhaps it was a proper cull:D

    I used to spend hours assembling them little airfix planes, days painstakingly painting them in the authentic camouflage colours. Then I'd fill them with lighter fluid and set them alight as I threw them out the bedroom window whilst screaming "Gott Im himmell".

  20. My bro was obsessed with these, and would spend hours building, painting and then playing with them, and arranging battle campaigns with his legions of soldiers. I would sneak the odd plane out to the barn and string it up from a rafter - then set it alight, flying around in circles. The sound of the molten burning plastic dropping off and hitting the ground was awesome :)
