Another driving one. Why do people leave such an enormous gap between themselves and the car in front when stuck at traffic lights? I know you're supposed to leave enough room to pull out to get past the car in front if you have to, but these twats leave a whole car length, sometimes more. I'm seeing it more and more, on slip roads like the ones off of the A13 it's quite dangerous as it means traffic backed onto the main carriageway......

Saturdays where you have no plans, nobody is around, you're restless and you really need to occupy yourself with something.

I can feel I'm going to get annoyed today, and subsequently do something self destructive.

Spend all day exercising - swimming, running, cycling. Then cook something really complicated.

Went to see James Acaster in Cheltenham last night.

Drunk bloke starts shouting out in first half, disrupting the show and despite being called out from stage, and his wife been told to shut him up, the first half has to be ended early. He then refuses to leave and spend half an hour threatening the staff, to fight the entire crowd etc and venue has no security staff available. And he was a big and very pissed up bloke.

Eventually leaves after many threats of the police and the show restarts, but James is completely thrown by the whole thing and the reminder of the show is a complete car crash. Not his fault at all but I'd bought those tickets 6 months ago and the entire night was ruined for hundreds of people Headbanger

Driving instructor course teaches 'tyres and tarmac' in other words you should leave enough space to be able to see some tarmac behind the rear wheels of the car in front, however you do have a point when some leave enough space for the whole of the 1st Armoured Division to slot in

Southeastern doing engineering work tomorrow which means I can't go to a gig at The Underworld tomorrow unless I want to get in at around 01:00am - which having to get up at 04:30am is just not going to happen.

Just been on hols to Corfu in one of these all inclusive hotels things. The amount of sheer greed, waste and pure selfishness was astounding. I’ve never seen so many grossly obese tattooed up women trying to eat their own body weight in food 3 times a day in one place. Add to that all the Liverpool football shirts on display (mainly warm by Germans oddly enough, really took the shine off a pleasant enough week away.

British Army taking the piss out of one of the brightest minds they have seen in a long time and now she has decided to move on to a better life, sad that this Gov does not see the golden egg that is there in front of them at the time
I will not go into details but I have just said goodbye to one of the most intelligent person I have seen working for the MoD f*** off cos they wont pay her more than a university

Little Ern, I grant you. Always found him a bit annoying but Eric, he was very, very funny.

I can't remember whether you're now in Maidstone, or Canterbury, but you do know that there's a St Pancras <-> Canterbury West service don't you? High-speed link takes less than an hour.

Yeah I'm in Maidstone but getting the St. Pancras service would mean leaving stupidly early to get back.
