    Vigs, most people on this site are old enough that they haven't a clue what your post means. Try re-posting it in English (that means capital letters and proper spelling and sentences and stuff) and you may get a sensible answer. On the other hand, maybe you won't.

  5. PassingBells, I did actually give him a semi-sensible and helpful answer in his original thread.
    He may be struggling to understand it due to a lack of spelling and grammatical errors. I’m trying to find a chav to English dictionary so I can communicate with him in his own language but it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack :(

    When the day comes that some numpty actually uses the phrase "am I bovvered?" on here, I'll probably choke on my tongue.
  8. I can help here. Red is the mushy brown colour next to the mushy brown colour, which incidentally is green.

    Alternatively colour blindness could adversely prejudice your health, imagine if you didn't see the coolours approaching, failed to salute..well you get the picture (the guys in bearskins and mushy brown tunics are the guards by the way)...
  9. Fancy a game of snooker? Better let me rack them up though.

    as an infanteer/guardsman you can be colour-blind.

    It is very common amongst males - to be red-green colour blind (CP 3)

    but youre fukced if you want to go to a tech trade like signaller - or even worse, bomb disposal
    'do i cut the red - or the green?'
