    An ipad screen that has blue flickering * going on with some colours can be fixed by a firm smack on the back of it

    Can’t agree with wishing anyone dead mate, shame on you. If I did, well spot on. My conscience is now clear...:50:

    * annoys the * out of me.

    He was on about a SPL toyr and the usual fly digs at Celtic, 11 rangers players, and mentioned Ajer is basically mince now and had Helander above him and said Edouard want to be Morelos, lol. I've not liked Eds attitude but Morelos has hardly been out of this world and whilst I said Ed would make the Rangers bench it was out of anger, but more towards his work ethic and stuff.

    He then started the pish about Rangers again yesterday and said how amazing Morelos was in Europe this season with all his goals, he's only fkn scored 3 goals in Europe, lol.

    I did send a tweet to correct the *.

    Just doesn't have a clue, doesn't watch Scottish footy, but he's always ready to have a go at Celtic, there is something between him and us maybe a fan has lamped him.

    Aye he's a complete * and despises Celtic for whatever reason. Most of the * he says is just to provoke a reaction from fans, I stopped listening to TalkSport entirely a few years because of it, his act is so worn out.

    Hopefully. I'd like to buy the guy in Brazil who mugged him a pint haha.

    A spitfire, with extra fuel tanks, could be airborne for over 3 hours but it only had 15 seconds of fire power. :eek1:

    Surprised that you can get 2 different Covid jabs when you attend clinic.
    Had Astrazeneca jab in Feb and next week been accepted for trial to see whether different jab combined with first jab, is more effective than 2 of the same.

    Not sure if anybody knew this but I found it fascinating.

    Gil Heron (top) and Gil Scott-Heron (bottom, his son)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gil Heron was the first black man to ever play for Celtic.

    He was spotted by a scout from Glasgow Celtic while the club was on tour in North America and he was signed by the Scottish club in 1951 after being invited over for a trial. Becoming the first black player for Celtic,[5] and one of the first to play professionally in Scotland,[3][8] Heron went on to score on his debut on 18 August 1951 in a League Cup tie against Morton that Celtic won 2–0. Heron only played five first-team matches in all, scoring twice.[9] He was released by the club the next year after making one appearance in the Scottish Football League[10] (having been unable to displace the established John McPhail)[4] and joined Third Lanark where he played in seven League Cup matches, scoring five goals but did not appear in the League.[11]

    His son, Gil Scott-Heron is considered by many to have "invented" rap. He was making songs in the 70s that eventually led to the blossoming of rap in the 90s.

    Gilbert Scott-Heron (April 1, 1949 – May 27, 2011)[8] was an American soul and jazz poet,[2][3] musician, and author, known primarily for his work as a spoken-word performer in the 1970s and 1980s. His collaborative efforts with musician Brian Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues, and soul, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. His own term for himself was "bluesologist",[9] which he defined as "a scientist who is concerned with the origin of the blues".[note 1][10] He is considered by many to be the first rapper ever.[11]



    I don't know much else about these guys, you might enjoy learning more about them. I discovered it today listening to the Blindboy Podcast which I would highly recommend.
