Treygreen13: Screw Oswald, I want to know more about NICK BEEF.


Story goes, after the cemetery stopped giving away the location of Oswald's grave, someone bought the plot next to it, and put a stone with Nick Beef. All you had to do was ask where the Nick Beef stone was, and you'd find Oswald.

Cemetery records state that no one is buried below the Nick Beef stone.

Mr_Fabulous: Ryan2065: Gunny Highway: Jenthelibrarian: Some of you are very brave about going to bad fierce high mountains.

I am terrified of heights and had a horrid time going over one of the highest passes in the [UK] Lake District, at all of 1,500ft last week, still having bad dreams.

Yes, I am pathetic. And next year I'm going somewhere flat, like The Netherlands, or East Anglia.

It must be a librarian thing as I am also terrified of ledges/heights.

Then don't take the hiking trail at Cliffs of Moher:
