Just reading through this for a giggle as my Dad is due to arrive any moment now. Received a text "I'm just leaving Cambridge services" about an hour ago, so D-Hour is imminent! I wonder what gems he will come out with this year.  Wink

Just came on here on a whim and reading spolied little 25 yr old Emma moaning about her dad, and he's been gone five years and what I wouldn't give for him to nag me and polish my scuffed shoes for me now  LIGHTAH!

Is this mainly 'I'm about to die soon', 'I'm still in grief', 'I want my ashes scattered in the back Garden of The Cadbury' or a mixture?

Not recommended for those who are recently bereaved, no, but more the third one. Basically a chat about death, mortality, end-of-life wishes and pondering the big life questions about death with strangers over a nice pot of tea and a slice of cake. Death Cafe's have been springing up all over the world since the movement started. You can learn more about them here : www.deathcafe.com

17  General / The Forum / Re: God on: August 05, 2014, 14:42:31
Have my own personal theories on things, they suit me fine and I don't wish to impose them, just like I wouldn't like any religion to impose their views on me.

But one thing that has really made me think over the last few years is learning about Mantis shrimp. Where we have cones in our eyes that can pick up three colours, red, blue and green and subsequently can see all the colours that are derivative of red blue and green; the mantis shrimp has 16 different types of cone!!! We have three. They have sixteen. Subsequently that mantis shrimp can see colours that do not even exist to our eyes. Even butterflies have more types of cones than us.

The point of this? Whenever I feel arrogant that as a human we will one day figure everything out because science. I realise that the limitations we have by biologically being human and only ever being able to experience things as human with our limited human senses, we don't know shit. There is a tiny shrimp at the bottom of the ocean that can see 100s more colours than we will ever be able to see, so I'm not going to put faith in the tiny human brain to figure out the secrets of the universe.

21  General / The Forum / Re: POLL: Who the hell washes raw chicken?! on: June 16, 2014, 19:15:29
I usually give a chicken a brine in some salt water for an hour or two before roasting to make it extra juicy and figure that will also kill any nasties it may have picked up along its way, but then pat very dry with kitchen towel before it goes in so the skin crisps. Nobody has died yet, and if they did, I make really good roast chicken so t least their last meal would have been tasty.

I think you tell her of his interest and see what she wants you to do..she won't thank you if you just give out her number..nor will she if she really likes him and you didn't do anything...that's as much as you do unless she says otherwise.


Never give out anyone's number without checking with them first, girl or boy. It's simple manners. But yeah, why not just invite a group to the pub and make sure they're both there? He can chat to her in person and if they get on he can ask her out face to face. If his "approach" involves getting her number behind her back... I can tell you now, it's not a good approach, he'd be much better off face to face.

Wow, I bet the kids love all these fruity and sweetie flavours!!

and with out nicotine they are just that, a sweetie. Like carrying round an electronic cup of herbal tea.

I'm just very cynical about the companies marketing these, with their little glowing lights and candy sweet flavours they might as well sell them with Pokemon cards! As the government crack down on tobacco smoking these companies are going to have to do everything in their power to get the next generation hooked on nicotine.

27  General / The Forum / Re: One for the atheists/agnostics on: April 04, 2014, 21:06:32
Neither of my parents were religious at all except on paper but they sent me to Sunday School regardless so I could make friends in the village (and probably so they could have a couple of hours peace on a weekend). They put an end to it though when they found me giving a full Christian funeral to a dead rat I'd found in the back-garden  Undecided kids do get influenced easily and they also have wild imaginations.

Randomly my brother got remarried last year and had now seemed to have found Jesus. As he wasn't brought up religious it's all a bit weird. But as someone said before, Religion IS weird, dabble at your own risk.

30  General / The Forum / Re: Trypophobia on: February 27, 2014, 17:16:29
It's not actually recognised as a phobia (not that I'm sure you couldn't help anyway!) and it's thought to be an evolutionary response to do with disease. To be honest, I just need to not google it as I don't come across lotus seed pods or surinam toads very often, but thanks!

Still feel weird though...

Since you've posted it I had a look into it and it certainly is very weird. A lot of phobias come from evolution, I do see people quite often for emetaphobia (fear of being sick), which then usually manifests as phobias of particular foods, smells and things in nature... usually because at some point it made that person sick, so the mind - specifically the hippocampus - then decides that that particular thing is now a poison (I have this with cucumber). It would make sense that this weird phobia is linked in.

Really do hope I get a client with this now, I LOVE phobias, they are my favourite bit of my job.

I will ask. I know they're working out on a big project in Stroud at the moment, but should be done in a week or so.

Please and thank you.

Fresh plastered room, new skirts maybe a carpet.

The best of the reasonably-price supermarket bunch IMO is Glen Moray. It's the brand I always keep a bottle of in the cupboard for when my cockles need a bit of warming.

Also if you're not into Whisky neat or with a bit of ice or water, it goes great with Canada Dry Ginger Ale (not beer), but maybe save the mixer for a blended job.

Nicotine can have a long term effect on mental health and the longer you're addicted to it the more chance you have of suffering from depression and anxiety. When you start to smoke the effect of nicotine is at first a rush, but as it leaves your system it creates a sense of anxiety... which we interpret as a craving for another cigarette, as the new intake of nicotine relives the symptoms.

Subsequently smokers, whenever we feel 'stressed' they are dealing with the nicotine craving as well as the stress, so the stress is felt more acutely.

We have natural stress-busting neurotransmitters in our brain to help us cope with stressful situations, as well as neurotransmitters to help us sleep, concentrate and relax. Over time if our response to these factors is nicotine, the brain stops producing these neurotransmitters and instead just craves more nicotine. The longer you smoke or take in nicotine, the less natural healthy brain chemicals you will produce, and therefore you're mental health is compromised.

And yeah, know someone who works for a big tobacco company and he told me they are ploughing all their money into e-cigs and the like, and you can bet that will include marketing to children.

Just quit, seriously, you won't regret it. Nobody ever has.

Hi guys,

I don't know if anyone really comes on Hijack for anything other than DIY so thought this would be worth a shot. I need a bit of tiling done. Due to hectic time of year and relative smallness of job I cannot seem to find one for love no money (and have offered both). Would really mega like this done before Xmas.

Anyone either know of a tiler, or can tile and has tools and might want to make a bit of Xmas cash? It's not a big job at all, but would really like it done ASAP. ta x
