What I love about these times is that furniture and electrical goods aren`t gay for blokes anymore.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhahahahahahaha- :rotfl: Feckin' awesome- Love that retro 50s style stuff. My Dad used to be a Wild West nut when he was a nipper so I recall reading a lot of his Kit Carson comics when I was a young buck. Some of the artwork was stunning!

Also used to sit down to watch the old black and white Lone-Ranger repeats on a Sunday after dinner. Miss those old father-son moments sometimes. *sigh*

Heres an old Kit Carson cover- You just know he's gonna own the snake and bone the sexy Native.

That stuff is pretty cool! The two presenters are atrocious. (As I imagine the price is, too...)

oh, and dunno if ive mentioned it already, but "commando" comic books. they were brilliant. we used to tippex the dialogue out and write our own. usually involving farts and your mum. and i had a habit of strategically scoring words out in "famous five" books in order to tell a very different story indeed. harder than it sounds,,,

Yes. Yes, they were. i had stacks of the things. Probably still do, actually.
Was never really sure what was up with the black and white photos of random sports folk on the inside front and back covers, though...
Each monkeys has different face. It's very difficult to distinguish monkey's face, like we can't memorize foreigner's face.

If you think about it, Enid Blyton was pretty much the gangsta rap of her time. Especially if you add in the golliwog stuff.
Are we allowed to say "golliwog?"

sorry, I know it's "gentlemans relish", but I must admit that the Lego sniper riffle was pretty cool.

I still have my LEGO, and can't wait to give it to my son to play with one day.

I remember MECCANO! That stuff made LEGO look like a child's toy. :wink: MECCANO was for real boys. :wnw: Great stuff.

As for mspaint porn. WTF? Talk about poor man's porn. :rotfl:

Erector Set was also great. (Actually sounds about the same as MECCANO). And Tinker Toys. And Lincoln Logs.

Is that a follow on from Meccano or mspaintporn.net?
Shut up. There's no way I was the only one thinking that...

Anyway, yeah, tonka trucks were great.

still on a nostalgia trip...i filled an action figure of the lone rangers head with cochineal, and made a noose from wire. i heated up the wire, and placed his head inside. quite an impressive gore effect as the wire bit into his hollow throat.

my talents are wasted here. i should be working for george a romero.

Something I've been dying to get an answer to from a broad spectrum of guys: If you find yourself in a situation where you have to fight some guy on the street, in a pub, what have you... What are the rules to the fight? For the purposes of the question, assume that you did not start the fight, but are in a position where you have to fight an aggressor. If you are the type of guy who would not fight under any circumstance, feel free to not answer the question and go back to your chest waxing or trying on skirts or whatever it is you do for fun.
What I'm looking for here is a better understanding of what y'all feel is "OK" in a fight. Am I justified in kicking this guy in the nuts? Biting him? Pulling his hair? Flying knee to the chest? Knuckle dusters? Thumb to the eye? Having my friends jump in? What are the rules?

The rules are: there are no rules. Seriously, you have no idea what the other guy could do. So I say hurt the guy as you can. For legal reasons, I would avoid inflicting major damage or killing the guy. But that's about it. Biting his nose would be pretty extreme, especially if it's place you may go to again.

I haven't been in a real fight since 2003, BTW.

It's just this sort of thing that I think about. The rules we follow due to social pressure. My friends might think I'm a lunatic if I bite his nose off... What would they think if I kidney stomped him? Or broke his elbows? ...... Or failed to fight "dirty"? We have a lot of stuff to consider when we are trying to decide what is acceptable behaviour in these situations.

There aren't any, unless you're thinking of pulling off one glove and slapping your opponent with it, putting on a cravat, and then challenging the guy to pistols a 12 paces. :mrgreen: If you're certain that you are going to be hurt, you have to fight back to save your own hide. There's no such thing as fighting dirty. A punch to the nuts or shot to the knees or other joint are perfectly valid ways of quickly ending a fight and saving your teeth! Who cares what society thinks.

Note: I've never been in a fight.
