"Why!?" was the first thing that popped into my head, and I think I'll go with it.

Nicked from the FB group...

While the BBC sort out the next two episodes so that they're not in contempt of court, learn the rules!

Of course, this will only be fun if you suggest some more!

It stands without reason that Buckfast should be the drink of choice for this merry inebriation fest, but White Lightning, MD20 and Paint Stripper.

The group owner accepts no liability for liver failure/cirrhosis/brain damage/pish stains caused by the game.

Take a drink:

1. Kay commits one of her many acts of utter selflessness (taking in junkies, harbouring war criminals etc.)
2. Killmarnock Sheriff Court appears on screen
3. A court case is mentioned
4. Dana mumbles incoherently
5. A character gets pregnant
6. You see a female in a ridiculously revealing outfit, considering their portly frame
7. Marvin is 'happy as larry'
8. You feel sorry for Kendal
9. You wonder if Chris really is twenty
10. You wonder just how old Marvin is. Seriously, he could be anything between 23 or 48.
11. Kay blurts out the C word in front of her impressionable young children
12. A character is seemingly optimistic about their future, only for this to be revealed to be ridiculous or the result of diazepam
13. The cameraman tries to make it look "artsy" and atmospheric - i.e. a still shot of two pint glasses in dishwater/a lone mushroom in a garden/puddles
14. Every time you see a baby with lightning bolts shaved into his head.
15. When somebody online does can not realise the difference between 'cancellation' and 'postponement'
16. Every time a mother says "ma son widnae dae 'at" when, for example, he is convicted of calling an Asian a "Bin Laden bastard".
17. Every time someone mentions the far-off land of gainful employment in a nostalgic or disgusted tone.
18. Every time bam tunes comes on eh radio.
19. Every time the paedophile cult of Ayrshire rears its ugly head.
20. Every time you don't understand what they're saying (Edinburgh edition: Any time you DO understand what they're saying).
21. Someone smokes a fag.
22. They play a far too cheery tune inbetween each dilemma.
23. Chris puffs up his cheeks after taking a draw of a fag
24. Every time someone says 'ken wit, that's no fair'
25. A Rangers or Celtic top appears on screen
26. Every time someone says 'cawr' (Killie for car) or 'coort' (Killie for court).
27. Every time ''giro' is mentioned
28. If someone tries to pontificate with something profound and deep and fails miserably
29. A parent look worryingly and deep into the camera and show their concern over their children who are about to go to jail and have an apparent drug/drinking problem and say, 'i just dont want them to have a life like meeeeeeee.'
30. Take a drink everytime the camera focuses on Chris and you wonder out loud whether he has Down Syndrome.
31. When Chris is clutching a bottle of Buckfast in his baws


Down your drink:

1. Any time Bullet runs off
2. If (and when) Bullet finally pops his cloggs
3. If a character appears out of the Sheriff Court inconsolable that, even considering their son's seven prior convictions, their little pride and joy is going down for 9 months
4. When a pregnant character purports to be anti-abortion whilst having a fag
5. If Marvin finally has a full-on cross-species relationship with Bullet
6. If you see someone's Bebo/tacky freewebs site on screen
7. If the community centre, after full renovation, gets torched to the ground.
8. If you see a person wearing a suit for reason other than a job interview or court appearance.
9. If Gordon finally gets a job.
10. If Marvin actually turns out to be 'The Secret Millionaire' or heir to the throne of Aruba.
11. If you recognise someone onscreen that served you in McDonalds
12. If one of our beloved Kilmarnockonians (is that a word?) appears on the Jeremy Kyle Show
13. When a glass bottle gets smashed over someones head. Then smash the bottle/glass you're drinking from (preferably not over another person, I can't be bothered with a lawsuit)
14. When Dayna shows "shes no a dafty" gets her tag aff and smashes Marvins cousin
15. Every time you find yourself thinking "I wish I could afford something like that".
16. When eh polis come to Kay's B&B.
17. If Marvin's Plasma and Playstation ever turn up
18. If Gordon cashes one of his rings into Cash4Gold
19. Whenever you see a huge irony in a family not being to able to afford for one kid, yet can easily manage to take a child's friend
20. When Kimberley gets grounded.
21. When Kendal calls someone a 'mongo'
22. When Kimberly nearly decapitates an innocent bystander with her 'graceful' dancing!
23. When Marvin batters a 'pregnant' women
24. When Chris introduces you to the tarroooops.
25. When you sense the big irony everytime Kimberley said that Dancing is all about presentation and then you take one look at her.
26. Every time wee Kendal says something that makes you think she is, by some distance, the most intelligent one on the scheme despite only being about 5.

Glasgow's houses are like mansions man!

Except without the toilets

and the windows

and the doors


....and the walls.

For glasgow lovers!

Oh and there's also the glaswegian rhapsody.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Or it just typical British cynicism?

If you are going to the University of Glasgow, anywhere in the West End is suitable really. Many people who attend Strathclyde also choose to live in the West End, Woodlands isn't far at all from the city centre. Try looking on Gumtree as well as with estate agent types. The news agents window on Byres Road is also a good place to look for student flats to let in the West End. The news agents is just opposite the turning to Havelock Street.
...Bleep Bloop...
#16
Check out some sites, Glasgow Harbour have some good flats going and is only about 15 min walk from the uni
#17
It depends. If you're into insufferable people with little to no knowledge of how the world works and expensive ancient houses, try the West End (because at least the music/art scene has some footing there). If you're a masochist (which moving to Glasgow suggests) then try the South side.

In all fairness, the areas around Paisley aren't too bad, like Foxbar.

I only know of one urban area, which I barely remember (but thought it was a shithole), Glenburn and Feegy Park. Glenburn doesn't look too bad but everyone I met there was a complete cunt.

Caledonian is right smack bang in the middle of the city. You'll probably want to go somewhere like Victoria Halls, right up the road, although that's mostly kids who go to college that live there. Why don't you stay in the uni's own accommodation?

Because my mom is moving with me from Germany.

It'd be kinda awkward :P

But on a serous note, we are looking for a place that is close to the Uni, but also not too close from the city, not too far. Maybe 10-20 minues away from it by transportation.

Transport options for caley are pretty good - it's just over the road from Buchanan Street bus station, so transport isn't such a big issue.

Glasgow uni student here. First of all, congrats on chosing a very nice city. Of the 5 countries I've lived in Scotland has been the best, and that's all thanks to Glasgow being brilliant.

Anyway, enough of that. Depending on what your price range is you should really try and look for places in the west end. It's a nice part of town. Indeed it's so good you rarely need to go into the centre. Avoid the east as best you can as it is the rougher part of town and is the reason Glasgow gets its reputation.

EDIT: Also, you could get to cally from the west end in 20 minutes on the underground, so it's definitely worth looking at.

The problem with that is Caledonian is right in the city, and there isn't much property that you could get in the city centre. Luckily Caledonian is just across the street from the main bus station, and despite looking like it's still in the seventies, the subway system in Glasgow is pretty useful. Your best bet would be to find a place on the outskirts and get the tube or a bus in everyday.

Edit:
Keep in mind I have never actually lived in Glasgow long term so everything I say has a chance of being bullshit.

10 - 20 mins away by train or bus can get you to some nice places - kirkie and lenzie our somewhere out in lanarkshire. Southside is good too. Gumtree is a great place to find places available to let.

Yeah, but how many Aberdeenshire/Welsh/Kiwi people, who happen to be suffering financial and mental issues are likely to be not only in Glasgow while TS is dressed as a sheep and bent over, but near him while doing so, and up for a shag at the time?

Definately. If it's been in Glasgow for the last academic year it's probably already addicted to heroin and got 5 sub par birds pregnant.
