    That's probably why they're closing down: it's a very specific market ;)

    Never Eat Shredded Wheat

    (...means there's more for me, om nom nom nom nom)

    Actually,I should extend that to include, "Never spill yoghurt on company property", but perhaps we all know this by now...

    Crap!

    It's all over my office chair. The stain looks pretty suspicious too...

    Yeah. Clothes shops are the most notorious for 'Closing Down Sales'; which are known to inflate prices before the sale so it seems like a great deal. They then hold a sale for what can sometimes be a year or more before they actually close or are eventually caught out by trading standards.

    cloth != clothes ;)
    Easy advice to dispense, yet some people have great difficulty sticking to such a simple instruction :D

    Have consideration for pirate DVD viewers by using the toilet before the film starts.

    When going through a speed camera, flash your lights twice quickly and watch the driver in front hit his brakes when he thinks he's been caught.

    Get a glimpse of married life by taping Woman's Hour on Radio 4, then playing it back at a higher volume than the TV while trying to watch something on Discovery Wings.

    Before attempting to remove stubborn stains from a garment, circle the soiled area with a permanent pen so that when you remove it from the washing machine you can check the stain has gone.

    Loved this one and what a great tip as I have wasted much time trying to find the area that had the stain when I have removed the garment from the washing machine.

    I keep trying to stain my shirts around the nipple area just for this purpose. I keep missing and it always seems to end up around the belly button area. Embarrassing or what, man.

    Good tip Ray is to hit the quote button underneath the post you want to copy.

    Don't drink "anything" and drive.

    As there is always some K*nt behind you who double flashes his lights as you go through a speed trap causing you to brake and spill your drink. :naughty:

    I would go touch it. "insert touching cloth joke here...."

    I'd echo this in terms of don't drive after drinking anything alcoholic. Because, you will bend your own rules once in a while and much better if after that bending that you're still legal.
