The Q&A thread

Postby skull-wart » Sat Mar 02, 2013 2:56 pm

So I'm quite sure that I couldn't find anything like this in the Bloodstock Arms and I don;t think anything so general would be anywhere else, so sorry to the mods if I've overlooked something :yes:

A thread for you to ask anything about anything and get a quick or a long answer without having to make a longer post. There are a lot of us on here who tend to give answers to queries regularly and although I doubt this will be the centre for all questions it might give some people a reference.

Granted some posts may not get answered and some may be lost but I thought I'd give it a go and I'll do my best to help out with any questions concerning anthing I have knowledge on!

So I'll start off: what's the going rate on posting T-shirts on ebay and what if it needs to be sent internationally?

Edit: I should note that if you want specific help from the bloodstock team there's is a thread especially for that here > viewforum.php?f=4

It can be, but I would have assumed that you've tried that already :lol: Plus things concerning bloodstock and opinions on things can't be answered very effectively on google. I'd rather ask the guys on here what they thought on something rather than trawl other forums :yes:

Anyone able to think of some way to disguise a cigarette burn in a car seat? My car is far from showroom condition to start with, but i cant help thinking that a big melty hole in the passenger seat while hurt the resale value more than it deserves.

Buy car seat covers and sell it with the car seat covers still on :yes:

You can get the fabric redone, probably at a cost.


...and don't smoke while you're driving.

It really depends on the age of the car. If it's less than 5 years old it'll pay off to re-upholster that seat.

If it's 5-10 years old it might be cheaper to source a brand new seat for the car.

Any older then the cost of repairing a fag burn probably wouldn't justify the increase in value.

Get massive a cigar and turn it into a cigar burn. I'm sure most potential buyers will agree that's classier than a cigarette burn. You could even claim that Arnie made it with one of his stogies when you were giving him a lift to B&Q.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Just stick a photo of Carol Vorderman with her mouth open on the seat, cut a hole more or less the same size as the cigarette burn (make bigger where necessary) and turn your car into some kind of foamy, Countdown edition fleshlight.

The Queers and Asians thread.



Not sure how much a thread based on bigotry is going to go down.

I've often partook in lynchings after local metal gigs - it's the done thing.

back on topic - what is the average price for a patch at a festival? And what would be cheap, just for comparison.
