Nice to meet someone with confidence/high hopes.

by JP Bill / March 25, 2013 12:27 AM PDT

I have two left shoes, (from two different pairs of shoes) One pair of Nike, and a pair of New Balance. I can only use the right shoes, because I broke my left leg and now wear a permanent walking boot to which I can't fit any shoes over. The Nike are size 11 mens, and the New Balance are size 10 mens. Just thought if anyone out there with a broken right leg needed some new shoes. 40$ for the pair or 25$ a piece.

If they put them both on the right and left foot, they can keep turning more and more to the left. Wink

Always check both shoes before buying
by Steven Haninger / March 25, 2013 7:35 PM PDT

There are actually specialty shops for amputees or those whose feet are not the same size. I imagine most of use who use self-service type shoe stores always use the same foot when trying on a shoe. If your feet are the same size, I recommend checking that the other shoe matches as shoes do get switched within the boxes. How much is accidental and how much is someone needing different sizes is something I don't know.

One of my favourite practical jokes, by Keith Moon and
by Ziks511 / March 28, 2013 7:12 PM PDT

Vivian Stanshall. They went into a clothing shop, and Vivian said "I'm going on safari in his plummy upperclass voice, and I need a pair of extremely strong trousers. Are you sure these are strong?" "Why yes, sirr they're our best drill trousers and wear like iron." Whereupon Stanshall and Moon each took a leg and ripped the trousers apart. The salesman stood astounded and thoroughly non-plussed, wondering how he was going to write this damage up. At that precise moment a one legged man came into the store, and said. "Ah, exacly the trousers I've been looking for! Thank you sir for catering to the unusual customer" paid for the two separate legs, and went out humming.

It was all a set up by the Ginger Geezer (Stanshall) and Moon.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
