That's a good point Miss Hopeful. Maybe you are the only woman currently alive in Britain?

For some reason I had an urge to call you 'Hopey D' for a second there.

My lack of sleep has me picturing you as some kind of Superman loving West Country Nicki Minaj

Most could probably make an educated guess what "knackered" means. "Fagged" would probably raise a few eyebrows, though.

Is it possible to show gay abandon whilst feeling fagged out and knackered?

From Wiki

A knacker is a person in the trade of rendering animals that have died on farms or are unfit for human consumption, such as horses that can no longer work.[1] This leads to the slang expression "knackered" meaning very tired, or "ready for the knacker's yard", where old horses are slaughtered and the by-products are sent for rendering. A knacker's yard or knackery is different from a slaughterhouse, where animals are slaughtered for human consumption. In most countries Knackery premises are regulated by law.

Also in Britain we say knackers as slang for testicles. "I've worked my knackers off today"

Where has this thread gone haha

When did I get huffy about off topic discussion in this thread?

I found it weird random pictures/completely unrelated covers were being posted... other than that I don't see anything wrong with people chatting away.

I'm almost sure my persuasive skills are not up to the task...


I don't believe it is too much to ask for, a hot and geeky girlfriend, that lets me know how much she is attracted to me in a sentence comprising of no more than ten words?

Edit...
Maybe I'll pick one up when I am at the New York comic con in October!!! Hopefully the girls will dig a Brit in a Spider-Man costume...
