Politically Correct Madness

By Pete | @kingpetey | 25 Jul 2009

This one is truly awesome, the PC crowd at The Gateway in Shrewsbury have decided that 'guide dogs' is clearly too offensive for some people (or the dogs?) and the more intelligent 'enabling dog' is better suited.

What next?

"No parking, enabled person drop off point only"

"The enabled ramp for enabled chariots."

My £683.78 Phone Bill!

By Pete | @kingpetey | 31 Mar 2009

I almost had a heart attack when I got a message through about my phone bill this month - a huge £683.78!

Fortunately after a quick phone call to T-Mobile it was sorted to more suitable figure - it turns out my Web and Walk (unlimited data) hadn't been added to my account. So what should have cost £7.50 instead cost about £650.

It's lucky I had the bill before it was direct debited from my account!

By extra | | 30 Dec 2008

Biopics and historical flicks are mighty appealing for filmmakers and stars, but it's hard to create drama when the audience knows the ending. Here are 10 that tried to make it work, with varying results. If only history hadn't ruined the ending of Titanic or for two hours of a guy getting tortured in Passion of The Christ!

Southpark creator

I found this cool site that lets you create your own South Park characters. You can choose from thousands of different body parts and accessories. I created myself below:

Welcome to my latest blog series on investions! This series of posts will focus on the useless and strange inventions I think up. The first today is the Tie Freshener.

I wear a tie for work most days and am constantly spraying myself with after shave when going to see clients. It got me thinking of how I could smell nice all day.




All ties have a little opening at the bottom that serve no real purpose. The Tie Freshener would be like a normal air freshener but would smell of your favourite aftershave (though if you wanted to smell of forest green that could also be available). It would clip on to the bottom of your tie and the smell would last for say a week.



You could make your own Tie Freshener with a car freshener shoved up the end of your tie.
