    We had the inkwells and dip pens. Most kids went home with black fingers.

    Love the porn mags in the bin at bus stops!

    What were you doing raking inside them, is the question - and moreover, did you take it home to have a 'wee chug' later?

    They were always stuffed full of them. And ripped up ones in the hedges as well. Maybe it was just a Liverpool thing.

    Haha... Yeah I know what you mean. Did you take them home afterwards for a secret five-finger shuffle?

    Ha - that's a belter! Probably a Scottish/Glasgow thing, though. I swerved that one, as I found it a bit chavvy... Besides, segs on 12-hole Docs didn't really go! Segs were for the wee roasters who wore slip-ons and thought they were pure gallus, clicking along the corridors like a fooking shire horse!!

    Metal studs that were stuck onto the soles of shoes, so that when you walked along, especially on school corridors, everyone could hear you coming!
