1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    i was in for an abdominal aortic aneurysm on 7th june 2017.
    i'd just come out of theatre after a 6 hour job, and an arsonist set fire to the royal stoke hospital. i remember waking up/being woken (not sure) in a corridor with the alarms going off, and could actually smell smoke. i came round properly around midnight in intensive care, and thought i'd dreamt about the fire, so never mentioned it to anyone, in case they thought i was mad :D
    it was only when i read the paper 2 days later that i realised that my dream was in fact real :eek:

    Lol! My son came round from anaesthetic when he was 6 and thought he'd been to McDonalds. His description of where he'd been was very detailed.

    One of my last trips to the ER for kidney stones was pretty rough. The nurse finally popped me with the max dose of Morphine and as I waited for it to kick in, it never did. I felt a slight let up in the pain for about 2 minutes, but then it was back with a vengeance. I'd never had Morphine not work and I was hurting so badly, I asked my wife to help me up. My thought was to walk or roll on the floor, but as she pulled me to a sitting position, I felt the stone pop into my bladder and the instant relief. I said out loud it was gone and the nurse looked at me like I was crazy. She says, "How do you know that"? I told her after about 4 dozen, over the years, you get pretty good at self diagnosis.

    Four dozen! Nobody deserves that. I’ve had 4 or 5 over the years, hopefully never again.

    I have had quite a few general anaesthetics, most recent back in september for an elbow op.
    They gave me a nerve block in my shoulder first then the GA, Its literally like being switched off then you wake up.
    The nerve block was weird, left arm totally paralysed for the next 14 hours until i found i could just twitch my index finger, so barely i thought i was imagining it moving. Within an hour it came back.
    Sobering to think that some people live like that completely day in & out.

    Love a general anaesthetic...
    Had half a dozen or so in 2002/3 when surgeons were trying to fix some broken bits..

    Slightly different every time but the cold creeping up your arm and ensuing headrush is pretty damn good..

    Heart operation last year. I’ve no idea what they did to me but for the following 3 days I was 'floating'. Quite a pleasant experience and the only pain throughout the whole ordeal was when a nurse accidentally lent on my rib cage, oh how I screamed! Fast forward to today and I’m coughing for England with a cold, oh how those ribs now hurt.

    I took a chainsaw to the leg a few years ago. Ended up having an epidural, I thought that was something only women about to give birth had, I also thought it would be a good idea to watch what was going on. As soon as they started cutting the muscle out and ditching it I must have passed out, I remember shaking quite violently, then that was that. Came round on the ward with a plate of pork chops next to me, told my mate, you can have them I just need more drugs.
