    Another thing you don't see anymore are football cards....you pay your 20p and pick a team from a choice of about 50, when all the teams were picked the winning team ( the name of which is hidden under a sticker) is revealed and you would win a couple of quid
    Ejector seat?...your jokin!

    I have in my mind those Panini football stickers that used to get passed along in the school playground.

    Are the Pools still going then, what with the lottery?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I thought that they had indirectly replaced the lottery as I had mentioned earlier on in this thread.
