What do people think the number is? The conversation popped up today at work and the guesses varied dramatically. If anyone has the numbers, save it for a bit, because I'm intrigued as to what people think.

"Please hold on, the bus is about to move."

1. It's already moving.
2. It's a bus, it's common knoweldge that it will, indeed, move.

Snoring issues
at 11:37 15 Dec 2017

My girlfriend snores. It's terrible. It reminds me of one of Abellio's older locomotives, chuntering and spluttering through the hours of the night. Occasionally she slows down and quietens as if through an area of speed restriction, or even stopping entirely as if held at one of those provincial stations in South Essex. But then, inevitably, the hope is gone and with a snort and a rattle, the noise mercilessly begins again, the figurative train cannoning over sleepers (grrr) with the occasional arbitrary horn (cough) spoiling any consistent rhythm. At one point on this expedition through the land of nod, typically around 2am, she finally seems to settle on a 'comfortable' flow, as if passing Colchester and suddenly she's the 'non-stopping service' to London Liverpool Street and I've HOURS of this cacophonic cadence to deal with until the assuaging bliss of my radio alarm.

Er, anyway, any tips? It's worse when she's been drinking.

Rats in flats
at 18:24 12 Dec 2017

My mate has a rat in his flat and doesn't know how best to get rid. Any ideas on the types of poison or traps that might be most effective? I was round the other night and I could hear it in the walls (at least I think it was in the walls) and behind cupboards.

It's not the best flat for making rat proof, given it's above perhaps the dirtiest kebab shop in SE London, with a serious lack of skirting and various holes in roofs and walls.

Other than 'move asap', any tips?

I'm football touristing tomorrow, at West Ham vs. Chelsea
at 09:48 8 Dec 2017

I hate West Ham but it's a free ticket and very easy to get to from my neck of the woods. Hoping for some good old fashioned schadenfreude.

Also another ground to tick off - never got there during the Olympics nor since.

Forgive me father for I have sinned.

Something cool to do in Suffolk on the weekend
at 15:42 27 Nov 2017

Wotcha.

I'm taking my GF back to Suffolk in a few weekends time and I was going to do Thorpeness but, obviously, the lake isn't open in the winter. Can anyone please suggest something to do on a Saturday for a few hours which isn't pub related (that's all I know).

Thanks.

EDIT - bloody hell I forgot about Sutton Hoo! Any advances on that?

Gym monkeys of TWTD
at 14:37 27 Nov 2017

Please, anyone, feel free to mercilessly take the p!ss here.

Since the marathon (sorry), I have begun to incorporate resistance work into my fitness regime again. I've had success with this in the past. I always feel better in myself for doing so. Lose fat, lean up, generally feel stronger and more healthy - the usual motivations for lifting weights. I manage to get to the gym 4 times a week, and I mix it up well enough between circuits, free weights, machines, HIIT etc etc.

Anyway, does anyone with experience of using resistance training to aid fat loss and help towards better overall shape have any useful nuggets of info or tips?

Nutritional advice welcome too, though I'm pretty good at this when I'm not on the p!ss.

Ta very much.

Homebuying question: type of Survey for 2 year old flat?
at 10:39 27 Nov 2017

Asking for a friend (I wish it were me!).

She's buying a two bed flat in South East London, built by Bellway Homes in 2015. It pretty much looks brand spanking new still, as you'd expect.

I have done my own research and come to the conclusion that, given it's under an NHBC warranty, a full structural survey on a relatively new build flat seems a pretty pointless expense, and a Homebuyer's Report, for peace of mind, is the better option.

Any views from the learned?

Crossrail pricing...anyone ITK?

How is this likely to work do you think? Will TFL ramp up fares (including inclusive travelcard rates) and make these inclusive of Crossrail travel, or will there be special pricing?
