That was pretty unusual.
Not in Fingerless.

Granted I was on acid at the time but it still seemed odd that de Valera was doing WWF-style moves on poor old Vinnie.
AnonoBoy, you're lucky you weren't out with benwavner that night. Could have been a disastrous trip.

Too many things to mention about my local they wouldn't even make sense in a gravity and physical-abiding world.

Cue ball flies off the pool table, hitting the giant flat screen TV and breaking it. Pub owner brings his own fancy TV down as a temporary replacement and on the same day cue ball flies off the pool table, hitting the fancy TV and breaking it.

Old drunk gets into a fight with the pub owner, the two of them wrestling on the ground, a couple of people starts laying into the drunk, I go to pull him off and then......WHACK!!!...............some bright spark threw one of the thick wooden barstools hoping somehow it would dodge everyone and land on the drunk..............it didn't and instead cracked me on the head full power!

Random French guys came in working for a popular TV station in France filming a documentary about Ireland and decided to hang around and record our whole Saturday night, nice blokes and they got pissed with us..............though I couldn't understand a word they said.

The next week 3 young jock Americans came in and couldn't hack their drink and being loud and patronising as hell. Everyone in the pub filled them with pure Irish shìte (Go up to the bar and order yourself a pint of "Uisce", tis' gorgeous.)

I've seen the entire pub fight, like one of those old western barfights. Crazy!

Watched a Russian and a Chechen have a political fight. The Russian battered the Chech.

Stray black kitten to used hang round the back before the pub owner took it in. The creepy thing just sits behind the bar on a stool and stares at you.

Quite a few people have dropped dead at the bar.

Too many to mention, amount of times I'm sure the lad's at college never believed me when I told them what happened every weekend.

Made a little in-joke video on the pub with me old Nokia mobile a good while ago:

Compared to the stories above - mine is nothing outrageous

In Brussels, I saw some bouncers trying to refuse entry to a group of lads.
Big fight followed - which ended up with one of the bouncers being stabbed.

This old fart is just that - old.
I've had the experience of being in many places and done many things.
Ye all will get there at some stage.

As for some the stuff I mentioned already...

Here is Durty Nellies bar at (or was beside the Cinema and Laser-quest at the time, now gone) at 111 Bradshawgate st, Bolton:

Here are the ullage buckets that a certain WELL known establishment used to get all the slops from a bar and refill the kegs with!
http://i50.tinypic.com/2mfyrgo.jpg

Here is the door entrance of the Disco-bar where the doorman got the blow-job by a teen - and no, the people in this are just staff at the time.

I also had the experience of being blown off my feet by the Manchester bomb and when I manage to dig those days pics up, post them I will.

I'm old. I've been around the block a few times.
Everyone have their own life experiences. Another 20 years time and folk won't believe half the crap that others like yourself will have been through either.

...but thats life.

A Guiness being poured straight, suffice to say that it wasn't in Ireland and the old man gave the bar man a light hearted bollicking.

Some scumbag bit my mate's ear on the dancefloor in a club that shall remain nameless........The Blacker.
