    No hope, perhaps, that this was Gorrdon Broon self-destructing.
     
  2. Ah well, no harm done, if it was a couple of miles further west be would probably all be watching the glow in the night sky right now.
     
  3. Haggis hunting has started early
     
  4. Al Queda have issued a Fatwa against Nessie but sent a suicide bomber to the wrong loch?

    Possibly test firing some explosives to make sure the main batch goes BANG! when detonated at the target. Would'nt be the first time AQ has tried to use Scotland as a staging area for attacks South of the Border; the fcukwits who tried to ram-raid Glasgow Airport had also attempted to use a car bomb outside a London nightclub.
     
  5. Maybe AQ & RIRA having their own Joint pre-Burns night rehearsals??
     
  6. Probably just a bit of illegal salmon fishing
     
  7. I doubt it, unless the Met has an Anti-Salmon Poching Unit.
     
  8. Mitrokhin's missing booby trapped KGB weapons cache's?
     
  9. Was that the one with the SADM? If so, London should be glowing in the dark soon...

    Some high-spirited yoofs are hiding in the undergrowth as I type this, shitting themselves and vowing to get away faster next time.

  12. A family friend of ours, a slightly eccentric ex-gunner officer, lives right next to where it happened.

    Ten quid says it was him, test firing the 25pdr that he's got parked up the in garden!
     
  13. Someone practicing blowing tree stumps out the ground with home made explosives ? Wasn't that long ago that such things were common in the countryside.
     
  14. Could have been the Jockinese author Ian Banks - he's mentioned his love of blowing things up in his excellent book 'Raw Spirit'
