Things I can’t do: Hold a damn camera straight
Oddly, I pass this street all the time and there never used to be a Police Box there.
This is not the one in front of Borders…
I just really like rounded corner buildings OK?

Shit that happens that make me go “YOU FUKKEN WOT?!”
“mildly intoxicated” white woman in Rangers shirt: What? so you’re not allowed to shop in here if you’re a Rangers fan is that it?
white woman: That’s bang out of order!
white woman: This is fucking Secterianism!
white woman: You’re a fucking racist you are!
white woman: If I was to say anything to you I would be called a racist but naw!
white woman: YOU’RE A FUCKING RACIST AGAINST ME!
Indian Security guard: Just get out will you……
white woman: *yells at me* See you hen, fuck you right! You look like a hideous fucking transvestite! and I wouldn’t bang you even if I was fucking dirty!
*woman proceeds to get hauled out of the store by both security guards.*
Me: Did this actually just happen??
Basically, two folk who were at the Rangers game came into my work to try and buy booze, but they were totally off their faces and could barely even walk right, and because they were causing such a ruckus when they came in the door, the security guard went after them and told them right away to leave the store. They didn’t half kick up a shit storm and made complete arseholes of themselves
Attention people in Scotland!
These are being left tucked into signs at bus stops since the “Some People Are Gay” ads have been seen on buses. While the information is pretty much lies and/or irrelevant, this is still hate being spread in everyday places.
If you see one, please take it down. Also, if you can, please reblog this post and let others know. Thank you.
Play every day!!

Pictures of Glasgow architecture/sights.
these are lovely photos. i’ve wanted to visit glasgow since i was a kid but have yet to go. i’ve been to england, ireland and wales, but missed scotland. someday!
Well, Glasgow and New York are similar in Meridian! Our winters aren’t quite as cold because of the jetstream, though. Scotland has some nice hills and landscapes etc. and if you have the chance, you should definitely come to visit.
So… This is what happens when the Nekos are set loose in Glasgow, and… HILARITY!
This was pretty nuts I have to say…
Blood Pudding; I wanted to save my first IG food shot for something special #haggas #bloodpudding #scotland #instafamous #food #foodporn #lynyrdskynyrd #instagramhub #glasgow #instamood #bestoftheday #picoftheday #photooftheday (Taken with instagram)
But haggis isn’t a blood pudding, it’s a wee beastie that roams the hills. It has one set of legs shorter than the other so it can run quickly on the hills.
And you can make a sort of faux-Haggis at home using the heart and lungs of a sheep cooked in its’ own stomach.
The shameful deeds of the British State in Derry on January 30th will always be remembered as Bloody Sunday, but often forgotten are its shameful deeds of January 31st 1919, or ‘Bloody Friday’.
“On Friday 31 January 1919 upwards of 60,000 demonstrators gathered in George Square in support of the 40-hours strike and to hear the Lord Provost’s reply to the workers’ request for a 40-hour week. Whilst the deputation was in the building the police mounted a vicious and unprovoked attack on the demonstrators, felling unarmed men and women with their batons. The demonstrators, with the ex-servicemen to the fore, quickly retaliated with fists, iron railings and broken bottles, and forced the police into a retreat.”
“An estimated 10000 English troops in total were sent to Glasgow in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of George Square. This was in spite of a full battalion of Scottish soldiers being stationed at Maryhill barracks in Glasgow at the time. No Scottish troops were deployed, with the government fearing that fellow Scots, soldiers or otherwise, would go over to the workers side if a revolutionary situation developed in Glasgow.
On 10 February 1919 the 40-hours strike was called off by the Joint Strike Committee. Whilst not achieving their stated aim of a 40-hour working week, the striking workers from the engineering and shipbuilding industries did return to work having at least negotiated an agreement that guaranteed them a 47-hour working week; 10 hours less than they were working prior to the strike.”
