    I found it today, on a shelf along with fashion magazines! I think the staff are playing some elaborate joke on FT buyers.

    FT385

    Usually they have it on a Thursday, they're usually putting their magazines on the shelves when I'm on my way to work in the morning, but for some reason it's always in a different place: it's been in with the politics magazines, tucked in behind Nexus, in the comics section, and next to Viz...

    What Are You Eating & Drinking?

    Lapsang Souchon tea and a packet of beef Space Raiders. If anyone has had a more unlikely combination of foods recently, I'd love to hear it.

    FT385

    Anyone else having trouble finding the latest issue? My usual vendor - a train station WH Smith's- doesn't have any, and I had a very thorough look for it (which I usually need to do since they seem to shelve it in a different place each month).

    What Have You Been Doing Today ?

    My day so far 3am - I awake, strangely hungry. A wander around the house and a look out of the window for a while take my mind off it and I go back to sleep. 6.25 am - I wake again, after an unsettling dream about lizards, but drift off to sleep again. 850am - Awake properly this time. I...

    No-one ever stalls their car, unless it's part of a montage of minor incidents used to illustrate that a character is having a bad day.

    As Neil Morrissey points out in an episode of Men Behaving Badly, no-one on TV ever catches the pocket of their cardigan on a door handle or walks into a room and forgets why they've done so.

    Competitions

    A friend of mine won an flatscreen telly in a Christmas Eve raffle in work a few years ago. Luckily he was able to make it to Cash Converters before they closed, and sold it for enough cash to keep him happily drunk over the festive period.

    Must admit, I do like Seinfeld. Not Going Out, though, I think is a load of old hooey.

    Inappropriate Toileting

    Anecdote: About 1996/97 a friend and I used to get the bus home together after work every day. One dark winter evening, the bus arrived and was unusually crowded - the front of the bus was crammed full. I noticed that the seats at the back were all empty and pointed it out to my mate. We...

    My Personal Heresy

    Everyone I know considers him to be hilarious. I think he's as funny as someone leaving a vet's surgery with an empty pet carrier. I think I'll now have "for mash, get Smash" playing in my head for the rest of the day! :p

    Four-armed mutant football hooligans on the loose- able to hurl four beer bottles full of piss at once in the direction of a family who just thought it would be a nice day to go and watch a game of football with the kids.

    What Have You Been Doing Today ?

    I was standing in the queue in the local B&M earlier, looking around idly when my eyes lit on a pile of reduced price Pot Noodles teetering unsteadily against some wobbly-looking shelves. It occurred to me that the foul snacks were in what I think would be the exact place where, way back in...

    Cars which end up upside-down will always explode. But not right away- there's always a brief pause for the viewer to focus on the car first before it turns into a ball of flame.

    Give Alan Moore 6 pages to write on any subject he wants and I'm sure it'll sell a good few more copies than usual. Has there ever been an article about Moore's novel Jerusalem? I really enjoyed the book, and am always interested in hearing what others thought of it. Alan's late friend Steve...

    The Most Frightening Or Unnerving Song

    A story I heard recently on Robert Plant's podcast: a few years ago he was seeing a woman who didn't know much of his music. He played her a few songs then put on Led Zeppelin's epic but very intense Achilles Last Stand before going into the kitchen to fetch something. A few minutes later...

    The Most Frightening Or Unnerving Song

    When I was about 17, I was listening to the Doors in my bedroom one afternoon when there was a sudden downpour outside despite the skies being bright and fairly clear. Riders on the Storm came on and the effect of the song playing with the noise of rain outside and the bright day was very...

    I just searched online, and think it might have been Uri Geller's Encounters, which was published in 1996. To get the thread back on topic, my attitude to FT over the past few years has been similar to Frideswide's, as posted above : I buy some issues depending on how much the main stories...

    There was a paranormal magazine around 1997 which gave away a quartz crystal with every copy that they said had been charged up by Uri Geller. Can't remember the name of the mag, does it ring any bells with anyone?

    Things That Make You Go... WTF?

    I used to work in a building that was in a red-light district many years ago. A colleague of mine left work late one night and took a shortcut up a side-street to the train station. As he walked past a doorway, he saw a woman crouched down defecating. A mere couple of minutes later, he...
