Quote
The former CEO of bookmaking giant Ladbrokes gambled with the law when he made off with a delivery driver’s car from outside a Perth kebab house after a drunken night out in the city centre.

Recently-retired Kenny Alexander, who as boss of Britain’s biggest betting firm commanded a net worth of around £23 million, accelerated away from the Marmaris takeaway in South Methven Street when the driver stepped inside to pick up an order.

Perth Sheriff Court heard the 52-year-old was seized by a “moment of madness” after he and his drinking buddy were refused entry to a taxi home.

When the driver caught up with him and told him police were on their way, Alexander took to his heels and ran off through the city centre.

Officers were later dispatched to the businessman’s £750,000 home in Brompton Terrace and found him sitting outside.

“It’s me you’re looking for,” he told officers.

I've posted in previous threads that I've often been tempted to jump into running vehicles and drive them about for a bit before returning them. Knowing the punishment is a mere £1,000 fine and a driving ban means it's definitely staying on my Peter radar.

Was trimming the massive hedge outside our house today with some big shears, and as I was doing the side bit (not the front/back) I was stood on my front path cutting so the blades were facing the path of the street. They weren’t poking out so as to even be seen by people walking past but couldn’t help thinking what it would be like if a small child walked past as I was getting a bit too enthusiastic and I just fuckin lopped off their head or their arm or something. All I could picture was me being like “WHOOPS!” in a really exaggerated way. WHOOPS I’ve cut a babby’s head off!! WHOOPS!!

Someone did a mad thought at us today:driving though Glasgow and someone threw a big lump of concrete or something onto our car window as we were driving on the motorway. Not permanent damage but a thrilling way to start an eight hour journey for sure

Fucking hell, they could have killed you, I'd tell the police as there might be cctv.

Mr. Haven also acted on a motorway-based mad thought on Saturday. We were doing about 70mph on his bike and as we went past some traffic cones he wondered what would happen if he kicked one of them. What happens is it's much heavier than anticipated, he nearly breaks his foot, and the light flies off the top and bounces off my leg. I just thought we'd swerved too close to it until we stopped and he 'fessed up. He won't be doing it again.

Have you ever tried picking one of those fucking things up? I've always found it absurd that a drunk person would be able to actually carry one all the way back home.

Yeah, they've got sand and/or water in the base. I found out by looking it up with the relevant authority doing the same thing myself.

I don't think he realised it could be full of sand or whatever it is that weighs it down, and had pictured it flying hilariously into the air and everyone clapping. He actually could have wiped us out, the silly prick.

That's amazing! I would be so tempted to kick everything on a mororbike. Or whack everything with a chain like in road rash

I often want to kick the side mirrors of cars that get too close or don't seem to see us, but I'd probably end up breaking my legs.

The best motorcycle trick is putting your feet on the road surface and standing up when it is raining. One of those cumulative PMTs, you begin by just lightly touching one toe to the road and marveling at lack of friction.
You can't really get all of your weight on your feet since you have to grip the saddle firmly with your thighs.
Have never worked out if this proves that tires are amazing or that motorcycling is exceptionally precarious.

While making a cup of tea I noticed a note I'd written on my wrist in indelible pen.
"Boiling water should get rid of that."

If I’m sat opposite someone while they take a swig of a drink, I always think about pushing up on the bottom of the glass or mug so that it tips all over their chin and chest. Every time.

Often when I speak with people who I’m friendly with but not hugely so, I get the urge to tell them that they’re my best friend and see what happens. I’m on friendly terms with my manager at work, and when we have 1:1s I like to imagine what would happen if I said “it’s so nice having my best friend as my manager”.
