Or you where born with the right genitals but the wrong brain..  No I'm not trying to be funny but have you considered that..   mans body female brain or vice versa setting off a lifelong psychological conflict..  what if they could operate on a brain to make it right for the body you had...

 

There you go, that should get some thinking..

Interesting point...I think there are lots of people that could have brain surgery for all sorts of reasons !

I just get on with life and do what I want to do....life's too short , we only live once (apparently)

I don't usually find this much weirdness until a long way down the comments on a random Youtube thread. I'm surprised how far I got before asking WTF am I reading this for and how did I get here.

Goblins seem to be shifting tons of  coni atm, spotted this tiny goblin struggling with some dirty great lumps so gave her a hand.  She has a small stove at home and uses it in that.

I am happy to declare myself as a goblin but only if stuff is stacked by the roadside e.g. by teams that have been doing DNO line work. Otherwise I have bought stuff (softwood mainly) or collected free from people who have had free work done. Early this year I paid £23 (if I recall correctly) for a pile of leylandii stems which did three full loads in an MPV, with the back seats folded down - this will probably do me for the winter, plus gave me some exercise to shift, ring, split and stack, so I reckon everyone is a winner.

But... if any of you pro guys are in the Warwick area and want to get rid of some arisings, I’ll be happy to bung you a few quid (£20 for a decent sized load?) - clearly some nice straight ash, oak or alder would be lovely, but in reality I am happy with softwood. I will even take euc if it is green; I do my splitting by hand though so I’d rather not go near the f£&@ing stuff if it has seasoned in the round...

Fine, PM me if you have some arisings - I am actually in Hatton Station. I have had some stuff off Timon in the past but that was when I had a trailer and could fetch it from Arley. I’m probably alright for wood until about February time, by which time we will have burned some and made space in the logstore ready for filling again!

I drive past you on the way home bu as I'm always on the way to collect the kids or other goblins have got there first never collected any.  I do know others at work here in Guildford though that get their supplies by collecting from you.

 

When you are splitting for home use time is not so much of a problem and using a maul on the tough stuff is good exercise for us office workers :)  Free is free after all.
