    Apart from that, my talents are confined to the bedroom as I am quite adept at building a bed, as long as it is from Ikea. Oddly, my bed was not bought from Ikea. I mean seriously, a person with my talents does not sleep in a bed from Ikea. :roll:

    Your not a cowboy chippie by any chance are you? Lol

    I am both shocked and appalled that you don't believe the word of a complete stranger on the internet. At least you had the good sense to say partners instead of partner. :lol:

    And here was me thinking your ace at the ol' bedroom gymnastics
    It remains to be seen which of the two talents possible mates would be interested in the most. :P

    I make wicked French Toast. So, I give good breakfast in bed. :wink:

    Mmm, in the UK a chippie is a fish and chip shop. However, I assume you mean a cowboy builder? If so, I'm afraid not. I am the opposite of a builder, I destroy. An old Jewish lady I worked with once told me there are 2 types of people in the world. These are schmiels and schmazels. Schmiels cause accidents wherever they go, yet remain unscathed. Whereas schmazels usually get in an accident, most likely caused by the schmiel. Apparently, I am a schmiel. :wink:

    It's bad enough that you're from Lancaster. You have plenty to be ashamed about. :wink::lol:

    Don't feel bad, my mother is from Westhoughton, near Bolton, home of the "cayeads". If you don't know the story, it involved a Westhoughton farmer who found one of his cows had somehow got its head stuck in the fence that surrounded the field. To solve the problem, he cut off the cows head (cayead). Now, it can be argued that the fence was worth more than the cow, so the farmer was smart after all. Either way, that is the most interesting story I can share concerning my heritage. How humiliating is that? :wink:


    @emmcee. I assume you are telling me you are a stripper and typo'd you're reply in the quote. If so, the forum demands proof of your stripping talents. :wink:

    Lmao, fair enough



    Iam a formwork stripper this is what my day job is, strip what carpenters make. This is called drop stripping, where you remove all frames and back props and excess timber and leave it all resting on one prop and bearer. Stand back and hit it with a long bearer and watch it all fall. Highly illegal in the industry, but fast as hell. Just spend the next 3 hrs de nailing and stacking materials.

    Nice. I've done that on person projects and once had someone do it to a raised deck I was standing on at the time.

    Lets see... My talents. I'm real good a breaking stuff. I mean real good.
    I can read drunk. 500+ novels in the past two years.
    I can fix almost anything, provided that I wasn't the one who broke it of course.
    I have a phenomenal success rate in transplanting "acquired bamboo"
    Good at making random yard art and paving my yard.

    Not cool dude, not cool! :P I'm sure the cow wasn't too happy about that though, my mum's is from Bolton! Lancaster is brilliant! Home of the stupidly expensive bus fares and poor weather!

    ROFLMAO! Brilliant. :lol: That job looks awesome, I would do it for free.

    Despite the hilarious reply, I'm disappointed somehow. You see, I think you would find more success as a stripper stripper. You could earn two wages at once. You could perform for the crowd and destroy things at the same time. Win win.

    Yeah man I've seen some decks collapse with people on it and I've seen some pretty bad stuff to out on site. But my best would be stripping out a shopping centre carpark and had literally about 200m of beam side to pull down, got it all in one go. The noise let alone the dust was phenomenal. But iam also basically a carpenter just boss is to tight to pay for my ticket, a bloke worth 50 mil a yr and is to tight. But anyway I've built lift shafts on hydraulic jump forms and stairwells on hydraulic climb tracks, erect frames, put up timbers, lay sheets, cut in. That sort of stuff.

    Here, a chippie is a prostitute. When he said "cowboy chippie" my first thought was of Midnight Cowboy.
    An old Jewish lady I worked with once told me there are 2 types of people in the world. These are schmiels and schmazels.

    Shlemiel and shlamazel.

    :lol: Oddly, the cow was not available for comment. Sounds like a conspiracy to me.

    Actually, I love Lancaster and have been there a few times. From my perspective, it's the gateway to the Lake District. I'm in Saddleworth, so I know all about poor weather. :wink:
