Thank You America For The Weather ;-)

Tue Aug 10, 2004 7:54 pm

Well, the tail-end of that hurricane (Alex?) has finally hit Scotland with a vengeance, and after a few days of blissfully hot weather it is now chucking it down here. Roads flooded, rivers flooding, people injured, cars with foolish drivers driving into deepish water and getting stuck  Big grin
Thanks for sending the hurricane this way
Personally I blame George Bush and John Kerry  Laugh out loud
Anyone else in the UK having horrid weather?

Kirkie..I always told you you're way too untalented to flood anything larger than your own underpants...but to get the help of GWB and the ketchup group, that is even below you  Big grin


foolish drivers..are there any others on Scotland?

Overall: Methinks you had some bad ganja this weekend...or too much beer, or too much of both at the same time Big grin

Banco is here, I know it, I can feel it, I can virtually smell him...he's lurking in the undepths of this thread, desperately trying to come up with a posting that is funnier than mine (and as usual NOT succeeding  Big grin)...never mind, old friend, let's all have a nice little Kirkie-bashing..just what the world needs on this dreary Tuesday!!

Well it's P*ing it down here again for the fourth consecutive day (it stops raining for about an hour a day), we've had a few tail ends of T-Storms pass by and it is quite hot.

Roads are flooding further south and at least it keeps the kids away, and them damn mopeds!

Haven´t been around my home town for a few years... but does the Liegewiese in Tiergarten still exist? With all the ladies adoring the sun (You know what I mean)? And those Turkish families nearby having their BBQ?
As teenagers we would cycle down to Schlachtensee or Grunewaldsee for a swim, the secret place was the Flughafensee behind TXL, but too far for us since we lived in Lichterfelde.

Well, it's pleasantly warm and sunny down here in the habitable part of the UK, so it would appear that Kirkie has succeeded only in drowning his own locale.

I believe that this would have been less of a disaster had the Sweaties not proven themselves too mean to pay for the necessary lifesaving equipment. In any case, I heard on the news that these Scottish floods had caused some £10 million worth of improvements.

Hmhmhm..there are several places in Tiergarten, the small one close to Sony-Center with lady bankers spending their lunchbreak in the nude being one of the alltime favorites Big grin

Yes BBQ still going on even though it is mostly forbidden.

Schlachtensee is my favorite jogging ground, including Krumme Lanke...Teufelssee is nice too, but even better are those small places behind Teufelsee that you can reach after 30 minutes of jogging  Big grin Big grin

It does allow all the Scots to finally make use of those appalling kilts though. Tie them together at one end and you have a flotation device. Big grin

I believe the RAF are roaming over Scotland shooting at all kilts they can see in order to puncture them.  Big grin

He's only one "s" away. Given the recent (hilarious) German confusion over your own spelling patterns and techniques, one would have thought you'd forgive just about anything. Have you found a way to write down that back-in-the-throat shouty way of speaking that you are so fond of yet?  Big grin

As for the tastelessness, Klaus, you of all people should be aware that the worse the event, the more sick the jokes become. We Brits pride ourselves on our unerring ability to offend every nation on the planet with a well aimed gibe at their most hideous historical event. How else can we explain our creation of Belgium?  Big grin
