Surprise present from Mrs BTM which, got to admit, choked me up a bit. I'm sure there are many arsers who hope I choke ON it however it's certainly got me smiling. I'm posting this in Science hoping I don't get the usual double act flaming, however would like to ask, what's the most poignent / emotional gift you guys have been given? On a science related basis of course.

A shovel.

I used to regularly receive from the old man dear little printed circuit boards and bits to solder together, to make such things as throbbing hearts, moving santa and reindeer and many more. Very satisfying to sit there with a cup of tea and fag, blobbing them together :)

I'm sensing a lot of bitterness with posters - if Greenjacketing someone with a shovel, ruining their Valentine's meal or simply bottling out of holy matrimony are the best gifts you've received, then Karma seems to be playing a cruel joke on you.

When I played the pipes years ago I was given a cap badge with the family/clan name and motto on it. Was such a simple and probably cheap thing but pulled at something anyway!

You started the bloody thread, you have to remember that not all of us are science geeks!

In my case, it would be my first Grandchild (semi science related due to it being of a medical nature, happy now?)

A signed photo of Dany Verissimo from a friend who bore more than a passing resemblance to her (well, I think so anyway).



Well, the things I would do to her definitely fall under the heading of 'biology'. And quite possibly 'criminology', too.

None, Joker, and when we're fully rigged up, doubtlessly my lack of ironmongery will be a topic of conversation with those mongered up more than myself and I'm sure I'll deal with that issue as and when it arises. Thanks for pointing it out though. If only I had the 3rd Shock Army to face I could hold my head up high.

And the cliches/buzzwords keep on coming, along with Greenjacketing as mentioned in a previous post on this thread. Are you Tropper's bastard love child?

And for the record, not just 3 Shock, also Republican Guards and the IRA too, just not all at the same time ;-)

And unlike you BB it'll always come back off tour.
When trying to take the piss out of somebody who ( despite having thrown his hat into the ring twice ) hasn't actually been on tour, tradition dictates that you have done at least one tour.

With this in mind, perhaps you'd care to Do One?

Awesome Joker, and I really respect you for it. I apologise for not being gonged up however I wan't even a thought when we took the Falklands and was pretty much only foetal when Andy McNab brassed up Arabica. When Gerry Adams was brokering a peace deal, I was brokering a sniff of Amy G****** arse in the dinner queue and I'll never forget 9/11 as I was fingers deep in Maddie Sp**** and didn't stop smiling for the next few days though I still didn't know what my dick was for.

Bloody Hell BB - sense of humour? Tour or not, i was always under the impression that if you could throw one, you could take one back....
