A picture of four fingers, a gold wedding band, a week to view diary, table top and a bicylce shaped key fob/bottle opener?

It's from a monopoly game?

Stereolithography, commonly termed 3d printing, or a laser cut bike charm?
Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

A very soft hand holding an antique relic dating back to 103BC
Thought to represent a ancient deity that was worshipped and often tinkers with
by males while the females went hunting.
Honestly chaps, I'm a female!

A BSO bottle opener, I just bought one from Mountain Warehouse, or rather it was a freebie when I bought another keyring type thing.

Spot on, though Gaz was in there first!

It works very well, and is in use almost daily. :D

It's a very clever design. :D
Rigid too, no bending at all despite (almost) daily use since my birthday last November.

Bottles of Hobgoblin are only £1.25 each from Lidl, and I buy them by the dozen. Highly recommended. :D

I've no problem with the 'what is this?' theme of the thread, and I don't normally take issue with heads-up posts.....

....but: I do feel uncomfortable when the heads-up is for cheap booze of above average strength being sold at supermarkets (apparently the one referred to in this thread has an ABV of 5.2%, way above that of a typical brown ale). So this means that a 500ml bottle will contain 2.6 units of alcohol, and two bottles would take an adult male well over the recommended daily maximum intake of 3-4 units (less for a female).

Cheap supermarket booze is a major factor in binge-drinking and all the problems it entails. And this is a public forum.

I just thought I'd better say this. :|

So that's why they are £1.24 in Tesco right now

Stop! Stop, will you?! Stop that! Stop it!

Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Supermarkets sell cheap booze'. :wink:
