No my last hamster died when i was 7, it had a rather nasty incident with a hoover (I must point out that it was not deliberate, it just escaped at an unfortunate time) The motors are quite useful for making trains (of the small electric variety) most of my family are really into that kind of thing so i do make the odd one as presents.

Beginning GIMP - From Novice to Professional

Postby spottedcat » Sun May 21, 2006 12:06 pm

Look, don't get me wrong here. I really enjoy reading the chat on threads I've started (on all threads for that matter) and I'm as guilty as any for going way off-topic, but these are the OT subjects I've found so far:

Unexpected product lines from Amazon
Pedantry
Horticulture
Latin grammar
Music notation
Vector Linux
Rebuilding computers
Geek projects
Hamsters

We can do better than this, can't we? :D What about white elephants (or pink ones for that matter), flying pigs, the meaning of life, when M$ will collapse, curry recipes, putting shelves up, whether green olives taste better than black ones,......

Any other ideas? ;-)

curry recipes,


Using the correct blend of Hot curry powder, and ordinary curry powder allows you to create a curry that not only tastes hot but leaves the delicious flavour in your throat for about an hour afterwards. Oh and raisins are a necessary addition ;)

And all olives taste horrible.

How far through the book are you now? is it still as good as it started out?

Onto layers now. It's all beginning to make sense. Very good book.

:shock: :shock:

Oh no, no, no. Home-made bread, home-made houmous, salad tomatoes, and large green olives.

Heaven!

With you up until the olives, got force fed them as a kid and I can't stand them even now. I can just about eat them on pizza but thats about it.

And the meaning of life is simple, to prevent people from selling their soul to Bill Gates, it is a continuation and adaptation of what the church has done for centuries ;)
