Are Irish citizens the toughest guys in the world?

Believe it or not, there is a whole other world outside of Cambodia and South East Asia, be it people or politics, frustrations or football, this is the place to talk about it.

Ok, how did that work then.

Reverse the function, made it a blower, rigged up a paint outlet. It was pretty adventurous. after smokin' a fat one.
Kiwi Ingenuity. :thumbsup: It was a blast, good fun.. we was like Cheech and Chong with 2 girls crusin' circa 1978


Bullshit, you did not need to rig anything up.
The Vacuum cleaners you are referring to came with a spray attachment that you connected to the exhaust side of the machine,
You used it to spray floor polish onto wooden floors before you polished them.


I love you Scoffer. :thumbsup:.. but 1978 man..that tech was not available.

I’ve owned a VW minibus but an 80s one. Never owned a Bug but nearly bought a few but rust put me off.

Mini’s have got to be the coolest best designed car ever.


First car was a Mini, but it was actually pretty shite on Kenyan roads. Owned a couple of bugs as well.

Any car would be shite on Kenyan roads (and Sihanoukville roads) unless it was a 4x4 or Rolls Royce!


Covered a fair bit of Kenya in a Minimoke......

The British are responsible for VW being around today.

Also, there were about 30 prototypes that looked like a beetle 'peoples car' at the time,

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... laims.html

And so the Nazi's turn out like the populist thieving murdering cunts they always were.


It was worse than that, they issued special savings books where for 5 marks or so you'd get a stamp and when the book was full you could get your car. Apparently 336,000 Germans filled their stamp-books - but only 54 were produced before production was halted for the war effort. The factory started making Kubelwagens for the army and later Schwimmwagens for the Waffen SS. Only Hitler (as a gift for his 49th birthday), Emperor Hirohito of Japan, and a few Nazi bigwigs actually received one of those 54 cars. I read that many Germans had kept their books and when VW became successful way after the war they were able to redeem their stamp books for a discount on a new beetle.

As for the cars, I had a 67 one in the early 90s and drove it all around Europe, it was reliable but not pleasant to drive.

As others have said, I think they are the quickest to get pissed (UK and 'Murican definitions both apply).

With the fast tempers and willingness/desire to fight, I think a better descriptor than toughest is "most fearless"

Yeah, like that’s a completely different car. (Actually it’s based on the Mini van, which I had with a 1100 engine).

What about your sisters back?





Ok. Below the belt.
I lost my virginity in either a Jaguar XK120 or my Mini van (1100cc). The jag was in storage at my mates house and the Mini “broke down” in a pub car park but I don’t remember who was first (Jag or Mini).
The jag was French registered so I felt quite European.

i've crashed into 2 police vehicles, while only having left 3 wheels on my car, and threw my remaining beer cans right into the face of the police "effin officer" , now back to you baby. they attacked me with their weapon stick, and i was the one who called for more gendarmery (that time) to come and help their colleagues who were already beating the shit outta me... #EverythingHasAReason

He's talking about a girl as well as an old man so chances are he lost his virginity twice.
