Don't think I'd have a problem, I've also shot pigeons, and if I still had my gun I'd shoot some ******** more.

I've just cleaned all the house windows and conservatory and they're sat in the trees laughing their arses off.

When I wash the car they tweet their mates.

Sorry if that was unnecessarily flippant Scud!
To be clear, I gave up meat, in the 80s, but was well aware that 100% vegan militancy was too much for me. Plastic shoes in the 80s were ****e. Between then and now I hadn't given the leather issue much thought, this thread prompted a minor epiphany with regard to major advances in vegan shoe technology and availability.

If you're a vegetarian who wears leather shoes, would you still wear leather shoes......

If you don't eat meat and have nothing whatsoever to do with dead animals, I'll think of a question to include you tomorrow.
Have done in the past, with both barrels and also a bit of wire and a stick.

Oddly enough both creatures tasted of hexamine.

Didn't leave them long enough to make clothing, though I could have got a sheep and used its brain to help with the tanning process.

48 in a 40 zone. I picked Mrs K and her mate up last Friday night, dropped said mate off in Leigh, and got snapped on the East Lancs Rd on the way back.

The camera is at a set of lights. I saw the flash but thought the limit on the stretch I was on had 50 limit and it was on the other side.

For the second time in my life I've been caught speeding in an area where, had I been caught a few years ago, my speed would have been perfectly ok.

It's about 10 years since my last indiscretion so I'll be offered the course instead of the points.

Today's question - if you could have a miniature version of any animal as a pet, what would you have?

Grizzly is a good shout. I was thinking rhino but a miniature bear would be cool.
