    I got a shit load of A-Zs from over the years.
    They were the days, working away, rocking up in a new city or town, arguing with the navigator in the passenger seat.
    Drop boys off at job then spend a few hours looking for digs.

    How did we manage without the internet?

    Porn.

    Gone are the days where you’d be grateful to find a few crumpled, crusty pages of Razzle that someone had stashed in a bush. It’s now so easily accessible with the internet. You can ‘burp the worm’ anywhere you please.

    Well, let's start with the title of the thread. What does it actually mean? The Merriam-Webster dictionary has four definitions of " to blow away".......

    1 : to dissipate or remove as if with a current of air - unlikely to affect us oldies, unless you are the carrier of the snowflake gene

    2 : to kill by gunfire : shoot dead - highly likely if you put up a fight instead of meekly handing over your wallet as is the advice these days

    3 : to impress very strongly and usually favourably - now we are on to something, but the answer would have to be, "very little"

    4 : to defeat soundly - a reference to my golfing ability perhaps?

    Cash machines, the amount of times they hold the queue up whilst stinking of piss and trying to work out the digits. Then they give a cheeky grin as they let one rip.
