I lived in Romford for a year. Within 2 weeks of moving in somebody had been stabbed out side the flat. Then somebody else died after crashing their car whilst being chased by the police. It wasn't the most pleasant of places.

Never dared go out in Romford.

Cheers for that John, I'll be the one front and centre doing some air mixing. And maybe touching some knobs unnecessarily, but that might get me thrown out

entered next years.

Seemed like a good day out and i have never run one before.

Doubt I'll be troubling smalls and danose though. You could probably add an hour to those times!

very good.

Sadly I don't really watch football so not sure who most of them are.

I just searched "benson oxford" on the search function and the first 5 posts are from this thread.

The others are:

someone talking about james holden  - he went to oxford.
me waffling on about chelsea clinton doing something stupid in oxford that was in the news - something to do with her wrapping herself in an american flag.
someone saying they enjoyed a set I had played - a real one dermo not a made up one from made up years in a made up job
Something else about the undergroud - some waffle from years ago - where I said i had lived in Oxford


So i tried google with "bedrock benson oxford"

1 hit, the second one down, the rest were irrelevant.


What I am saying is that you must have been trying really hard to find stuff. It;s not that surprising that I've talked about the place given that I have lived here for 9 of the last 15 years. It's amusing that a comment about a tie, that was self deprecating, and also a bit of a dig at those who do take ties seriously, can get you into such a froth.

but he was 2 years above me so waaaaay cooler.

He also probably got more than a half colours tie (which I think is the equivalent of a 10m swimming certificate)

lolz.

you've made it when dermo starts a thread about you.

I guess he missed the first thread 11 years ago because he was too busy working at eatern bloc records.

And Smashy is right. the first link doesn't work, or my credentials are not strong enough to access it.

A slightly obscure Oxford college half colours tie is my best. Never worn it in anger


Had a few shandies down the bear tonight. greatest tie collection I am aware of.


It didn't feature in our conversation. Funny that

Well done smalls. Very respectable time.

Went down to the finish to have a nosey but there are far too many people there for my liking!

Got a mate who's still running it

K is a great drug for transporting psychotic patients by air

Weirdly it makes psychotic people a lot easier to deal with.

Yup, as per on a sunday morning in Hove.

A small line of shit coke is ten time the limit. That was my point

Ub - Rest assured that one of these days that twat will get flattened by an HGV.

The one that tried to flatten me got sacked 3 hours later.

I'll answer that question:

1.96 litres / kg volume of distribution (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4028628)

I am 85 kg so my Vd would be 166.6 litres

10 mcg / litre means I can have 1.6 mg (166 x 10 mcg = 1666 mcg) of cocaine in my system at steady state.

Seems like a very small amount.

Even assuming 30% purity and a line being 1/20 of a gram, each line would contain 0.3 x 0.05 g = 15 mg

So one small line of poor quality cocaine would be 10 times the limit.

Of course you don;t absorb everything you snort and there is a small build up but nonetheless it is a very strict limit.

Which is a good thing by the way.

How much kibble do you need to take in order to get a blood concentration of 10mcg / litre?

I crossed the road and nipped between a gap in the traffic. Two cyclists peddling down the road, they didn't need to slow or alter their course but felt it necessary to yell abuse at me for daring to cross the road without permission from the green man.

Utter twats

I get at least one near death experience when i cycle each week i cycle. I do about 70 miles a week from mitcham to central london.

Cars overtaking way too close, pulling out without seeing you, or caring you are there.

The only people I have actually hit on my bike so far are pedestrians who stepped out in the rod in front of me when I was on a boris bike.

There is a certain irony about cyclists protesting about the colour of the lights though.

London has improved massively in the 6 months I've been there.

Interested to know what specifically has improved mate?

More cyclists stopping at lights. Packs of cyclists are starting to police them selves a lot better. Those who jump red lights are getting shouted at by cyclists rather than ignored.

Cars. The police operation does appear to have had an effect. ASZs are being left for cyclists.

More cyclists with lights and reflective stuff.

When I have had a puncture I have had people stop and offer to help me.

I didn't realise how much better until I went back to Oxford. Fucking stupid cyclists there. No lights, dark clothing, wrong way down one way streets. All the norm. Obvisouly I did the same when I was there but that doesn't stop me whinging.

Cycling is London is crowded but much much better than Oxford.

Part of it is probably cycling the same route, becoming more aware of the danger points. Clapham is a nightmare but way better than Brixton.

Got a brand new boardman team carbon bike today so will have some fun on that next week.
