      You could always hang one of those old fashoned sump heaters under it. They used to be all the rage in the days of starting handles

      You'll have to explain the significance of "starting handles" to me. I'm not pulling my OAP (just) yet!

      In those far off days, when HD telly had 405 flickery lines and two channels, and you could take out your girlfrend for 10 shillings and have 9/6d change, cars had a hole in the front were you could turn over the engine with a starting handle if the battery was a bit flat. Happy Days.

      Ahem! You're not as old as I thought you were.
      I remember when tellies had only one channel and that switched off between 5 and 7!

      But they were happy times!! this time of the year doctors waiting rooms, thick with fag smoke and steam rising from wollen overcoats, were full of people with hacking coughs caused by the smog from a million open fires in peoples homes. Ah the good old days

      Re: Sky + kaput

      If you agree or these apply to you your're getting old:-

      20. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

      19. Having sex in a single bed is out of the question.

      18. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

      17. 6:00 a.m. is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

      16. You hear your favourite song in a lift.

      15. Jeans and a t-shirt no longer qualify as "dressed up."

      14. You're the one calling the police because those annoying kids next door won't turn down the stereo.

      13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

      12. You feed your dog tinned dog food instead of last nights takeaway leftovers.

      11. Sleeping on the settee makes your back hurt.

      10. You take naps.

      9. Pictures then dinner is the whole night instead of the beginning of one.

      8. Eating a curry at 2:00 a.m. would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

      7. You go to the chemist's for ibuprofen and Gaviscon, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

      6. A 2.99 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."

      5. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

      4. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."

      3. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

      2. When you find out your friend's missus is pregnant you congratulate him instead of asking "Oh ****, what happened?"

      And the number one sign you are getting old is:

      1. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you and can't find one.
