Inasmuch as he shared our 4 man accommodation. He was also into igniting his farts as a party piece - once sans pants.

It’s amazing what cheap NAAFI beer can do to you!

Orange or mint flavour? Neither are ideal but there's definitely a worse idea there...

erm... maxing out my 1.8 Astra Sport on the M4 at about 1am, speedo showed 125 but likely to be a touch less than that. Jumping my little Nova over the hump backed bridge by the crematorium and finding a cyclist had stopped on the other side. In convoy with another member of the TEF, coming back from a gig at Newport on the M4, pulling alongside each other, two rear passengers hanging out of the rear windows and high 5'ing at about 80ish. On a German exchange, my partner and I were going to his mate's house out in the countryside, had to cross a busy, fast country road, he ran across in a gap I thought was way too small, but I went for it as well after a second or two's thought, I felt the air of the car on the back of my standing leg.

Hahaha, the hi5-ing on the M4 was with me. It was Little Dave and someone else, maybe Big Lee? (is he still around these days?) Man, those were the days.

Similar to Leggett. I took my first car 1.4 Clio down Blunsdon Hill at well well over 100mph.

Tailgating a Lotus Carlton in the outside lane of the M40 in my 1983 Metro 1.3, at over a ton, not sure the car had any metal in it by then it was so rusty!

About 35 years ago (bloody hell where has the time gone?) I tried to hit a ton on a Yamaha RD125LC coming down the old Blunsdon Hill. Was nearly there as the dual carriageway ended and decided it would be a good idea to keep going even though there were cars coming towards me and cars in front of me. A case of head down behind the fairing, elbows in and hope for the best.

I had one of those.  Didn't get close to 100 on mine.

Driven up and down in circles
Skidding down a road of black ice
Staring in and out storm windows
Driven to a fool's paradise
It's my turn to drive
But it's my turn to drive
Driven to the margin of error
Driven to the edge of control
Driven to the margin of terror
Driven to the edge of a deep, dark hole

Sat May 5th 2007, cigarette end caught in my scruffy jeans, location Town End. Could we actually still smoke in the ground then or was I breaking the rules?

Oh ffs, maybe Flammable and I are quite similar...you have just reminded me the time I also set myself alight. Never have I seen/smelt the combined burn of skin and hair smell like what I can only describe as being "Smoky Bacon crisps".

Very stupid and very lucky. Whoever spotted me do a "Starsky & Hutch" style dive, drop and roll would have been very entertained. My stupid task? I decided it would be awesome to make my own candles in a makeshift ben tin and tongs, inside an old chiminea. The hot paraffin based liquid subsequently dropped and reacted...woof. My only "luck" was that I had some level of fire and evacuation training from previous job roles so knew what to do "in the moment".

Now it just reminds me of the Audislave song Gasoline or even better Set It Off. Two great tunes by the now departed Chris Cornell.
