I only get PAD when I find clay pipes at flea markets / antiques shops or on eBay!
I was confused by B&M as we have a discount store called B&M Bargains / Express / Home Stores here in the UK...
I should know as there's one by the river clean-up site at the retail park here in Chesterfield!

Can't help but noticing that there's dozens of members here that were "Last seen" the same day that they joined.
Is this thread like the Bermuda Triangle where members disappear without trace? :eek:

Uh-oh . . . . . cue the Twilight Zone music.

Alrighty then: What do the "+1" and such mean? And I apologize in advance if this is as dumb a question as I think it might be lol
It means add one more in agreement with what was just said. What he said - +1 (add me to that).
That's my definition I'm sure there's a shorter one on some woke urban dictionary.
