Not really my thing, was told this is what happens when coffee is left on the warm plate too long...
As someone who likes a well brewed coffee (chemex, aeropress, espresso, Hario V60......) the idea of coffee sitting on a warm plate makes me cry :crybaby:

There used to be a coffee called rocket fuel! Main thing I remember after drinking it is lying in bed wide awake at 3am, completely exhausted but not able to shut my eyes :shock:
They still make it. It’s contains caffeine and guarana. Know this because I had to read the label after drinking some (a lot) at a friends house and wondering if I needed to go to A&E because my heart was racing at over 90bpm (whilst resting), like the well worn line says “Caffeine do dumb things faster”
We were terrible as kids.
Legalised speed... pro plus into red bull when it first came out.....lol

Did that just once. Once upollytito when we finished university, we went our separate ways, missed each other badly so decided to meet up. One person couldn’t get enough time off work so we decided to all go where they were- Dublin. Unfortunately everyone was coming to my place the day before so we could all fly together from Bristol. Ive never been able to resist the preparty party and with the excitement of being together again nor could anyone else..........
The next morning we went to the airport straight from the night before not having slept still wearing the same clothes. If they could’ve harnessed the power of the jitters they could’ve flown that plane with no fuel. We arrived early and the rooms weren’t ready so we had to sit in the beautiful marble bar of a plush hotel hair plastered to our heads looking like something even the cat wouldn’t drag in.
Vodka proplus and red bull is not a good combo.
Gave up caffeine and vodka when I got back..... switched to tea and gin :D

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Well as they say, what you gain on the swings you lose on the roundabouts.

We moved house this week to a lovely rural place just down the road from Oulton Park. So I informed the insurance for the bikes, no change. :roll: Then the house insurance, £22 refund :cheers: Then the insurance for the cars, one was £16 extra and the other was £7 more :booty:

So I’m a whole pound down. The car insurers said they’ve had too many claims of people crashing into tractors. How’s that happen? They’re big enough to spot!

The bike might come down last year if an admin fee was 'included' in the change?

Hmm not spent a lot of time in proper farmer land?
There’s no need for precaution, just always assume you’re right and the laws irrelevant and you’ll be fine....... :notworking:
