Edit, took an exit into the stationary cupboard. I think I’ve found the exit now.

That sounds like the "low alcohol" version of my Roger & Out lip balm :smile: .

I'm just considering whether Cheddarman's use of the term "nobjockey" constitutes homophobia; whether such attitudes are acceptable in bikepacking; whether his homophobia, when compared to his view on Redefined_cycles' desire for an all-male cycling troupe as being "sexist", constitutes hypocrisy towards protected characteristics and what his employer's view of his attitude would be 🤔.
nob-jockey I think's OK
it's not a synonym for "gay"
sausage-jockey's a no-no though
sausages are haram yo

Sadly not Andy:

"knob jockey (plural knob jockeys) (Britain, offensive, slang) A male homosexual. (Britain, offensive, slang) A totally useless person, usually a male." - and the first five searches I carried out showed the same definition. Words have their own context aside from those around them. There is a huge list of words deemed unacceptable, even in isolation, that were in common usage only a few years ago. Looking back to the 1970's whole TV programmes were based around words that are now unacceptable. Time has moved on.

When people who self-admittedly enjoy wasting their valuable time joylessly berating and supposedly pointing out the inconsistencies, hypocrisies and nonsense of about twelve inconsequential people on an obscure forum in a backwater of the internet, whilst displaying those traits themselves in spades, it's amusingly ironic. And when I say amusing I'm laughing at them not with them.

Meanwhile, back in the unreal world it's Friday - yippee! Virtual Virtual WE weekend :-bd .

I had to read that 3 times before I realised it didn't say " five inches"
