    i remember that one. the hardener had gone off so he ended up using Pritt stick and a load of lollipop sticks.

    Rubber bands. They turned out to improve the stiffness of the frame.

    mec, a pot of hair gel (wet look for the true 80s feeling) would improve the stiffness of that frame...
    I preferred 'Black and white', coconut.
    when i lived in Crewe i used to get pots of black and white from the geezer who hacked up my hair on a regular basis.

    put it in, it never came out. had to wash hair with Fairy liquid.
    Is that why the crewe cut was invented?

    exactly the same here plus happy hour pints of dodgy bitter followed by cavorting with dubious young ladies.

    leaving smeary ming marks on pillows, destroying the inside of motorbike helmets. not having your hair move even in a gale force wind.

    it really is/was gooey horrid sludge.

    went through a Brylcreem stage as well - not sure what that was all abaht, tbh.....

    I loved the smell of B&W. Thankfully, never did go down the Teddy boy Brylcreem route.
    Saturday was half price bottled beer in the Balloon factory between 8 and 9. You learnt to keep bottle tops, wear long coats, buy extra beer and sneak it out.

    I can see how you've managed to fit in with the Scots. 🤣
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    I remember doing some work with some Glasweigian R.E.

    We all decided one Saturday to go to a small town, find a pub, have some beers - 7/10 on the beer scale as we had work to do the next day.

    They all snuck bottles of Jagemeister into the pub and we swigging them while drinking beer, got slaughtered and started fighting wach other.

    I had on in A&E because he decided to punchfuck out of a post box. The post box won.

    and they moaned at me for selling ciggies to people in the smoking area.

    All fun n games, eh...

    The Scots (and Narden Eyerish) do not skimp when it comes to drinking. They think nothing of going and getting bladdered and easily blowing a ton in the process.

    Was this the way one of your ladies made comment on your bedroom skills as a lover, ming marks on your pillow or do have you a fetish for fish as well as vintage bicycles?
