Been in the paper a few times near our local area. A guy paints 'c*cks' around the potholes. 'Amazingly' the council seem to fill them in much quicker when you have all these c*ck pictures around the potholes !

Fun event.

Was surprised at how well AvP on the Jag has aged. The joypad wasn’t pleasant tho.

I was playing Donkey Kong when the Mario Bros cab next to it started to smell of electrical burning. Worrying.
