    Oh I'm sorry, I clearly misunderstood! The article makes it sound like people were BOOING because they thought half an hour of FOGHORNING WASN'T ENOUGH, when in fact it was QUITE THE OPPOSITE!

    THIS rather LOW-RENT thing happened in the postcode next to mine, I think I may have to MOVE. From the ads you'd think it only happened in very COMMON AREAS

    I mean REALLY

    I cannot imagine how SOUL DESTROYING it must be to be a journalist for one of these local papers constantly writing articles like this when dreaming of hitting the big time.

    They pulled it down ages ago. It's just bare wasteland next to the market place parking entrances/exits now (or it was in March when I last drove past).

    :disco: I’m going to have to look at that lovely place in Glasgow again, although I can’t for the life of me remember where we talked about it. I think it was on a particularly mental lockdown day when we were posting about similar things across various threads

    @COB What’s the name of that fabulously grotty derelict club in Glasgow we talked about a while ago which we’re going to reopen as the Moopythèque with darkroom, dwarves and sex dungeon?

    Whenever I go into Bolton (Which is rare, I run with the Westhoughton set these days), I seldom go up that part of town. I was at La Salsa last year and I'm sure Ikon was still standing then.

    We'll add that to the many other patches of wasteland in Bolton with big dreams but no budget. I remember when they were going to build exclusive apartments with a continental dining area next to Lever Chambers. Last I checked, they'd not got round to it.

    It was definitely gone by last August as that's the last time I dropped Mr F at work so went past every morning on my way to work and night on the way to collect him. So I googled it and it came down in October 2017! Can't believe it's 2 and a half years since I watched it reduce bit by bit every day.

    "Appeal after man seen". I like to think that ends with "... and hen party begin terrifying pursuit".

    What the fuck is going on in Grimsby

    Naked man 'carrying severed hand' escapes house in Grimsby by smashing through front window


    https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/news/grimsby-news/naked-man-carrying-severed-hand-4511222

    [​IMG]

    A shocking picture has emerged of a naked man escaping from what is believed to be an abduction in Grimsby.

    It is understood the man had his hand badly wounded or severed before or after smashing through the front window of a house in Convamore Road to escape his abductors.

    The picture appears to show him carrying something in his free hand. One witness said they thought the object was a body part.

    The incident triggered a major response by police and the ambulance service to the scene in East Marsh.

    The injured man sought refuge in a shop across the road after the incident late on Saturday afternoon. Paramedics treated him at the scene before he was taken to hospital.

    It is believed he was being held against his will at the house after being forced to leave another address in Cleethorpes earlier on Saturday.

    The image caught by a shocked passer-by shows the man naked near the Lifestyle Express corner shop on the corner of Convamore Road and Ropery Street.

    His left lower arm is hidden by his body but in his right hand he appears to be carrying something, which is also shown in the shadow cast on the ground.

    There are reports he had been beaten in the house, possibly by two men, before he managed to escape by throwing himself through the window.

    A terraced house across the road from the shop had its ground floor window almost completely smashed out. It was sealed off by police after the incident.

    A heavy police presence was in the area following the incident on Saturday afternoon.

    Witnesses reported smashed glass from the ground floor window of the house and medical staff at the scene. Medical equipment used to treat the man was lying outside the Lifestyle Express shop.

    One said: "Apparently the man jumped out of the window without any clothes on and ran across the road to a shop.

    "It looks like he was treated by paramedics in the shop."
