Scaleback, which medical condition do you have?

Usually your posts are somewhat random, but this is a new high. You've given us no context at all, just a list.

I'm not a troll and if I do, it's purely unintentional.
If I was a troll I'd have been given a permaban well before now. I was just asking if anybody remembers the busses I mentioned.

I didn't say you were a troll, I asked what medical condition you have. Your manner of communication suggests there's at least something, shall we say, unusual about you. Or maybe it's something very usual indeed. Depends on the condition. I wondered if there was medication for it or if it's just something you have to live with.

You didn't ask anything, you just made a list.

Put it this way, you've not seen what I do with photo/imaging editing software. But some people (not you) might
see it as trolling.

I think maybe it would be helpful if you made a point when starting a thread. Your new ones keep popping up randomly and are often rather odd! Add more stuff like questions or even a point and it may even get people interested in it?!

As for your list.

No.

I agree, also naming a couple of north west bus firms probably wont gain a lot of interest !

Here we go...

After a little searching I found my dad's bus! :D When I was a young lad my dad drove for Yellow Buses in Bournemouth. When they had new buses, they would send a group of them up to collect them and bring them back - my dad drove this (119) back from Scotland and basically drove it around as his bus for years!

According to my old man, on the buses was fairly accurate to real life on the buses! Apparently the drivers had the girls throwing themselves at them! :shock:

Ha ha... very true. Only in the 70's did 20 year old girls find 50 year old men that live with their mother attractive.
Those were the days - not that I'm 50. Or live with my mother either.
