Yes, the 6 hour tube journey is a bit of a killer :)

Paddington? Isn't that a bear?

Funko
05-06-2006, 08:56:22
Yes, do you know how he got his name?

Vincent
05-06-2006, 08:58:58
Do you know how you got your name?

Funko
05-06-2006, 09:09:36
Jesjes, from this guy called C.G.B Spender, he told me it was German for Sparkatron.

Vincent
05-06-2006, 09:20:39
You shouldn't believe everything germans tell you. It means "The guy who has a name like a funny bear but the name would also fit for a bizarre train station"

Funko
05-06-2006, 09:23:39
Did you know that in French Vincent means wine money? ie. the change you give homeless people so they can buy cheap booze to get drunk on.

Vincent
05-06-2006, 09:31:01
They also have a train station with that name in Paris, for some bizarre reasons it's spelled "Gare de Lyon" but it's pronounced "Vincent"

Funko
05-06-2006, 09:32:15
It's because so many homeless people hang out there.

Vincent
05-06-2006, 09:36:27
Well, they have a home then!

Funny that you can be on the train line "Reading Paddington" and can do exactly the same!

Funko
05-06-2006, 09:37:23
Imagine how much fun you could have seening the Reading Library sign.

Vincent
05-06-2006, 09:39:58
I heard the closed it because the book was stolen.

Nills Lagerbaak
05-06-2006, 09:40:52
Or the Reading Christian reading room?

Vincent
05-06-2006, 09:54:52
Reading is fun

That's been demolished!

King_Ghidra
05-06-2006, 10:13:04
But they're rebuilding it in the same place!

Vincent
05-06-2006, 10:20:42
Where is that?

Drekkus
05-06-2006, 10:58:05
Aren't you the Brightone?

I thought they were building 'luxury apartments'.

King_Ghidra
05-06-2006, 11:05:12
well i went and looked at the sign last time i was walking by and it said they would be rebuilding it there

Funko
05-06-2006, 11:13:06
Cool. I must have misread the sign.

Drekkus
05-06-2006, 11:13:59
Bright On!!

Nills Lagerbaak
05-06-2006, 11:16:37
actually wasn't it the christian science reading rooms?! No wonder they demolished it, such a paradox should never exist.

Suprised they're rebuilding it.

MoSe
05-06-2006, 11:18:47
did it evolve from previous project, or did they create a new one form scratch?

Hmm....which one...decisions, decisions I will take the first one if i was you. because of the travelling time really.

MoSe
05-06-2006, 11:23:42
but what's he going to airport for if he travels by train????
:confused:

mr_G
05-06-2006, 11:26:10
pick up hot stewardesses?

At Gatwick? Dream on...

Venom

Is this something good that I should be laughing at or something bad that I should be laughing at?

Vincent
05-06-2006, 16:35:42
Stop laughing

It's ok...hes not german. It's allowed

Vincent
05-06-2006, 17:18:31
This is a serious matter. Why can't americans understand the importance of public transit?

Venom
05-06-2006, 17:31:12
Because we all have our own cars. Sometimes two or three.

Spartak@CPH
05-06-2006, 17:37:18
Just ask 2 jags

Vincent
05-06-2006, 17:44:00
Isn't that a sad individualism? Look at this:

* Neighbour's got a better car - arsehole! Now I gotta buy a bigger one
* Neighbour's got the same car. Embarrasing!
*Neighbour's got aworse car - HAHA, what a dickhead!

Now public transit:

* Neighbour's got a better route. Cool, I might try that too, thanks!
* Neighbour's got the same route. Ah, buddy, we both wre right. See you on the train!
* Neighbour's got a worse route. Hey, check out mine! Always happy to help!

See the beauty in it?

Venom

Looks like communism to me.

JM^3
05-06-2006, 18:13:31
Does it count as a car if it just sits in your backyard on blocks?

JM

Venom
05-06-2006, 18:53:12
Damn right it does. It counts as a car, a couch, and a jungle gym.

Spartak@CPH
05-06-2006, 19:18:46
Not top mention its a garen ornament.

Venom
05-06-2006, 19:28:43
If you say so.

Darkstar
06-06-2006, 01:37:00
It's also a shelter for wild animals, like birds, racoons, squirrels. Just helping out the environment!

do you live down here??

MoSe
07-06-2006, 06:35:52
:looks back over shoulders:

are you asking ME? or some previous poster?

Funko
07-06-2006, 08:44:15
I think she's asking K_G if he lives in Brighton.

He doesn't, I guess he's just visiting.

The Norks
07-06-2006, 19:20:15
I just wondered coz there's a guy in my work building who looks like K_G and I wondered if they might be related before. It would have been a bit DOH! if it actually was him!

Vincent
07-06-2006, 19:25:55
It's K_G's non-evil twin

MoSe
08-06-2006, 07:55:26
the oh-so-self-loving one?

That self-righteous goody two-shoes! How i hate him!

Venom
08-06-2006, 12:07:17
He said you loved Jesus.

King_Ghidra
08-06-2006, 12:27:21
loved to ass rape him, yes

Funko
08-06-2006, 12:27:48
How better can anyone express their love for Jesus?

King_Ghidra
08-06-2006, 12:28:41
that's exactly what i said to the magistrate

Venom
08-06-2006, 12:31:36
And then you ass raped him.

King_Ghidra
08-06-2006, 12:32:21
i thought it would neatly summise my argument

Funko
08-06-2006, 12:33:59
The magistrate expressed his love by sending K_G somewhere that many, many men could express their love for him.

Venom
08-06-2006, 12:36:46
And ass rape was had by all.

The End.....was sore.

Funko
08-06-2006, 12:38:02
Both ends.
