My partners family are down a lot. The builder making my hole (into room) also hails from glasgow originally. Last night he said that when he went back one time he asked for pop (somewhere) and he was called a puff. I think he then said they call it ginger. I will ask my partner's mom tonight.
 
I'm quite good on my scottish accents and tend to always punt at their location when I hear them speak, hence lots of chats on scottish twangs.

I have nothing but fond memories of the nineties. But since then, in an era of endless innovation, innovation has run away from me. Innovation is the future, not the past. The past is dead. And what's left is the future of the past.

The future is the past. In my view, the future doesn't just contain more innovation in computers, cars, or consumer electronics, it also contains more innovation in all other domains of living. What I mean by this is that the future is a bigger place, more complex, with many more problems to solve, and all more interesting. So the future may not just hold more interesting problems, it also holds more interesting solutions - and as I often say, a future with fewer problems means less opportunity for solving those problems.

That's the future of technology. The future is the past. To continue this path we have to think in terms of a greater system. It's not just about the individual, it's also about what society means for each individual.

... granted, the first season started in 12/89, but most of it was shown in 1990 :p (and they came to Germany only later)
What, the Simpsons are almost as old as me?!

1993 saw the production of The Sandlot, whence the mawkish catch-all response:
You're killin' me, Smalls.

Incidentally, Bitmap, I see the sign says 'Trabant' at the end of that scene. I suppose the same manufacturer maybe made carts for the rides at fairs?

Likewise my friend. Likewise.:)

In 1991 Tom Morello* met Zack de la Rocha. Since then music was never the same.



*saw some youtube videos of Tom Morello discussing his guitar techniques. Also read some articles about him. The guy is hands down a virtuoso of electric guitar.

Ginger it is! Look up Frankie Boyle's gag about the Englishman asking for lager and lime in a Glasgow pub, only to be told that they don't serve cocktails.

Bitmap was pronounced the winner of his school's betting game by predicting France to win the WC before the tournament.

Just curious… was that a lucky guess from your side or some sort of sophisticated mathematical-chess propability-theory algorithm.
