B3ta - the advanced truths

1) Nobody knows exactly where the line is, but you will find out quickly when you have crossed it.

2) The mood, will and whimsy of the board is not to be fathomed or dictated.

3) If your post count per year exceeds your salary, then you probably spend too much time on B3ta.

4) If you open B3ta outside of your usual days/time period, don't expect to be popular, understood or even liked. However if you are not popular, understood or liked in your usual days/time period, then this doesn't matter.

5) /talk boarders all secretly want to be /boarders but they will never admit it.

6) Lurkers are always watching.

7) Mods fucking love the power.

8) Deleting a thread is often worse than creating an inappropriate thread in the first place. Nobody can tell you exactly why.

9) The majority of people who suggest compo entries never enter the compo or ever post an image. These are the people who will email all the good pics to their friends and Nuts/Zoo



My username

if you remember this then you may remember the poor bastards that had 1 placed by their parents into one of Midland Bank's Griffin Saver accounts. You got a dictionary and a black nylon holdall - thereby negating the need for your parents to buy you a proper Adidas bag for school.

Only one problem - the holdall had the cocking Griffin Saver logo at each end of the bag in bright yellow and made you look a right spaz. The solution - colour in the yellow bits with a marker pen. Hoorah!

Did it work? Did it fuck - you just ended up with a black nylon bag with a shiny black Griffin Saver logo at each end and looked like an even bigger spaz for being forced to try this concealment.

It didn't stop people trying it though and it made you look like you were in some kind of spaz gang.

The day I got a new bag for school meant I could hold my head up high and laugh and point at the spazzes with everyone else. My dad used the Griffin Saver bag for work instead to take his sandwiches in. He didn't moan or care. He was a proper man with a proper job - making steel.

Underneath it all though I am still carrying my Griffin Saver bag with the logo coloured in.


Avast found this for me...

» Call Centres

I took a cold call from a company wanting to sell me a conservatory
despite hearing them properly, I feigned a daft old boy voice and told them I had voted labour all me life, me dad had voted labour all his life and his grandad before him, and I wasn't about to start voting for those tory bastards now. Good Day.

The laughter on the other end of the phone made me smile as I cut them off
