    Gaming disorder?!

    Who knows? Could be......aren't they all linked to pleasure inducing chemicals, endosomething or other types when we do something which gives us pleasure? I get a huge kick ( adrenalin?) from decoying, especially when the birds keep coming in, to the extent I don't want it to end. 🙂

    Looks a nice enough gun. The engraving is standard for a GE and as the chokes are fixed ( I've seen some GE's with extended chokes and it looks awful in my opinion ) it would appear to be all original, and original unmolested GE's attract a premium. 101's are old guns now but still very popular with many people, and GE's are about as good as it gets in that marque. There are many on gun trader ( MGR specialise in them ) so it shouldnt be too difficult to price your particular model. If it has it's original case it would be a boon, but even without it should hold its price well. If you're interested in 101 trap guns the Diamond Grade and 8500 are also well worth a look.

    Gaming disorder?!

    Interesting topic. I have to agree with Lloyd90. Gaming companies spend huge amounts making their games as addictive as possible, and it is suggested that the chemicals released and generated by gaming ( on whatever console you choose...including phones ) are very similar if not the same as those generated through extreme sports and other stimuli such as alcohol and drugs. We've all seen footage of apes and other animals rewarded for responding in a particular way; take away that reward or thwart the response somehow and they can go ape pooh. Chemicals have been generated by behaviour and reward. It's no different for toddlers and youngsters, and in some cases adults. There are documented cases of kids soiling themselves while gaming and not actually having been aware of it.

    Yes, so I believe, what I asked right at the start of this thread ( and what no one seems to be able to answer ) is why? Something to hide?

    Camper vans and motor homes

    Neighbour has a Fiat Arapaho for sale at £21k. It’s an 04 plate and has 10k on the clock. Must admit I’m tempted but would have to sell 110 to fund it so doubt it’s gonna happen. Another mate has a Hymer he’ll be selling as soon as NZ open their doors again. He’s been all over Europe in it and had a whale of a time. He says the only downside is that unless you strap your motorbike to the back it’s a case of having to stash everything away each time you want to do a bit of sight seeing. Still tempted though. Think it’s an age thing.

    Signed off work with depression

    I quite agree, but let’s not kid ourselves about the reason the police prefer it in these circumstances.

    Dad's day

    Chocolates, sweets, chutney, a book and some pencils. 👍 And then in the evening I took them for an Indian. Cracking evening.

    Signed off work with depression

    I think it’s possibly more of a aria covering exercise yet again, as they only want to remove those items they are responsible for issuing tickets for. If they were so concerned about risks to the owner and orvthe general public, then surely they should insist he hand in all knives ( kitchen and otherwise ) all other pointy and sharp implements such as screwdrivers, chisels, tools such as hammers and axes, pills, his car keys etc etc etc. Logic dictates. 👍

    Cynical perhaps, but an accurate analysis nonetheless. Good post.

    Led up the garden path....

    I thought the government of the time joined the EEC and then there was a vote some time later in which the general public voted to stay in? The current government ( if they had had the choice to decide ) would have voted for the status quo, as they obviously didn’t want to leave, but Cameron rightly gave us a referendum and the majority voted out. Some people need to get over the fact the outcome didn’t go their way. To suggest that some shouldn’t be allowed to vote and such decisions should be left to governments is indicative of the kind of arrogance that is everything that is wrong about today’s politicians, and especially those in the EU, and most of those who voted remain. Its the ignoring of the masses by those who claim they know best, which led to the out vote for us and the in vote for Trump. As a famous dead man once said: ‘You can fool all the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time.’ Or something like that.

    Has law and order broken down in this country ?

    A quick update to the above. The couple were eventually rescued by a lone copper who just happened to be travelling by, and wasn't arrested but taken to hospital in the police car as there was little prospect of an ambulance getting through. It isn't stated how the child got to hospital but over a week later there still hasn't been any arrests made.

    But its safe to assume you entered into the marriage of your own free will. I had no choice but to join the EU, and when I got the chance to choose, I chose out. There was no benefit from my point of view to me voting to stay in.

    I'm not sure how it works now, but I would think it fairly easy for untraceable elements to be taken to scrapyards and 'lost', and the sellers paid in cash. There are plenty of dealers willing to deal in cash in hand for items that can't be traced, despite legislation introduced in an effort to stop it. Last year just after the horse fair at Appleby the local JT Atkinson ( building suppliers ) was broken into and the entire stock of plumbing ( copper ) materials stolen, and nothing else. It was either stolen to order for a specific job, or went for scrap. They gained access via the only two windows not alarmed, which indicates a good recce beforehand. Travellers were never happy about us photographing their vehicles whenever they would turn up in the yard to try and sell us power tools etc. Perhaps that is what it will take to get politicians and police to sit up and take notice. There are already people out there 'entrapping' online groomers and potential peodophiles. .
