The Fratton Road, Portsmouth Mini Pub Crawl

We had plans! Oh, the plans we had! Plans involving trains and travelling, a meal in a far-flung destination with friends, maybe a few drinks (to be sociable), and then return trips home in carriages of blazing blue!

Surviving Drone Attacks

With the vast amount of drones in the sky spying on us all and executing people without trial there’s never been a better time to embrace our mole man heritage and return to the subterranean caverns from whence we came. Unfortunately, however, the behemoth that is Amazon hasn’t recently invested in a robotic tunnelling delivery system so there’s every chance they’ll wield their mighty power to prevent all this...
