I mean like 'Lord' and 'Lady' etc, I was thinking about buying my boyfriend one for christmas, it's something he's talked about quite a bit, and I thought it would be a nice gift lol. But after looking around a bit, I came across this lovely site telling me all the brittish ones are fake, but you can buy yourself some land in Scotland and become a Laird.

So anyway, is it worth it do you think?

I wouldn't mind lol, I loved watching 'Monarch of the Glen' (OGP - BBC show, about the Laird of Glenbogle, good stuff) and he's always said he thinks it's really cool. Apparantly it's anywhere betwen 50-100

Anyway, after looking into Lairdships a bit more, for a very reasonable price (27-30) you own a square foot of land, but to become a Laird you have to own the whole estate, so thats a bit of a cop out too. But oh well. I'll sound him out a bit and see what happens

For a price I can adopt your boyfriend. I have some suspected (but unconfirmed) noble ancestry.

You could get an asteroid or a star named after him fairly cheaply. Saves on wrapping paper I imagine.

Lords and Bitches of the Manor?

Lords and Athletics or Lords and Belles.

None of them are real unless you have several hundred thousand pounds to give to the Labour or Conservative party.

Otherwise it's all phoney (oddly enough.)

Your boyfriend is more than a little weird for wanting a fake title...

you can buy an acre of moon. I have no doubt the US will take it off you as soon as they colonise the moon though.

I know someone who is a Laird by means of bought title and she's a fucking lunatic. I'm not sure if the two are connected.

Why be just a laird, when with a little experimentation, he can be queen for a day ?

Thats actually a pretty cool idea, I just wanted a present that was a little unusual.

He doesn't want a fake title, he wants a real one, he just thinks it'd be funny to have people address him as 'Lord Frost' everytime he and his mates order anything they always give themselves a title, it's the little things lol.

Diss, nice to know you're keeping it in the family ;)

Kitsuki
06-12-2005, 02:51:10
Aye, but the point is he isn't going to get to become a real Lord unless he does something really impressive like find the cure for cancer, or become a self-made millionaire and plough a shit load of money into a main-stream political party....

alsieboo
09-12-2005, 08:19:34
Yes, which is why pretty early on in the thread I gave up on the idea when I'd actually thought about it. This thread is no longer about buying him a title. It's about getting a star named after him. Go on, ruin that one as well, you know you want to.

mr.G
09-12-2005, 08:22:59
maybe we can call darkstar after him.

Hehe, this one is *mildly* easier...

He just needs to be the first one to discover it... :)

Anyway, the only body that can name astronomical objects is the IAU, and they do not sell names. Any company that claims to do so is essentially a fraud, giving you a piece of paper but no official status.

Land on the Moon can't be owned. If I remember correctly, a Yemeni group tried to lay ancestral claim to Mars, and were shot down.

Please Note: This is a fun, symbolic gift. Scientific institutions will continue to refer to stars by their coordinates only.

I just want a fun unusual gift for my strange boyfriend, just shoot me down in flames why don't you all.

He is a man and therefore a power tool has to be the ultimate gift, a drill possibly which can double as a gun.

And if Mrs Laz ever reads this, please ignore the above statement, for the good of your household your husband and possibly the very fabric of space time.

alsieboo
12-12-2005, 01:25:56
I'm not buying him a power tool, I'll just have to find something else to go with the mr potato thing.

On an completely unrelated note, woolies have a pink dvd player! And a pink princess tv to match!! omg how cool

not all men like power tools. The only power tools I like are vibrators. :).

In the tool vein (hee hee), maybe a pair of helping hands (hahaha) would work:

I think they're the greatest tool ever.
