    My singing is so bad I'd scare anything away. My music teacher at school said I was the only person he knew who could mime out of tune (I was one of the members of the school choir who were there to make up the numbers and NOT - under any circumstances - sing).

    Never had much luck with music. The same music teacher asked us if we wanted to learn and instrument. I said "Drums" and he asked me to name a famous percussionist.

    Apparently "Keith Moon" was not an appropriate response.

    Cool... I had an ants nest in my iron once... I hadn't used it for months and I kept it in an outside laundry... Turned it on one day and a heap of small black ants came rushing out of it escaping the heat... poor things were being cooked alive...

    And then there was a time when I lived in the city and had an electric digital bedside alarm clock and ended up with those small species of cockroaches living in there... Seems the warmth from inside the clock attracted them but it got a tad frustrating because they pooped everywhere inside it.

    After a while I could barely read what the time was because of the build up of cockroach poop just under the clear plastic cover... There was no way to get inside the clock to clean it so out it went, but it was kind of pretty okay watching them run around under the clear cover...

    Salt might corrode the heating element.

    Without checking, possibly vinegar put through it afterwards could help that as the salt wouldn't have to be left in too long to kill a slug ? .. sounds like that iron could be used to hot plate grill fish and chips afterwards if not for use as an iron ;)

    Yeah...why not turn on the iron? The slug might come out then.

    'Iron' used to be a term for 'gay' back in olden times.

    Yup, 'iron hoof'/'poof'.

    The Scaffold song 'Thank U Very Much' mentions the 'Aintree Iron', who, gossip has it, was their friend Brian Epstein, the Beatles' manager. Mike McGear (AKA McCartney, Paul's brother) denies this though and as he wrote the song, he should know.

    Interesting. I heard him being interviewed by Danny Baker, that noted connoisseur of matters Fortean, and MM took great pains to claim that Aintree Iron was just a nonsense word combination. That said, and taking your interpretation to be true, there was no way he was ever going to be able to make it look good.

    owhh nooo.... you can't do that.... you'd end up with a boiled slug, or if you prefer fancy, a poached slug...

    The poor slug is more than likely doomed to die in there anyway and slowly rot into tiny little bits and pieces and stink out the water in the iron.. not like it's a dog which you can tempt to come out with a treat is it?

    I'd switch the iron, quite low. When we had an open fire, if there were slugs in the firewood they'd break the land speed record to get away from the heat.

    Hopefully a slug has more brains than flies do and finds the way back out quickly.... Those flies, no matter how big the doorway or window is, never seem to find their way back outside again, forever flying from wall to wall banging their heads and sustaining more brain damage...

    At my place everything gets given a chance... Sometimes in Summer when you get home late at night and it's been raining, hundreds of snails all gather up blocking the front door entry... Not allowed to go crunch crunch at my place, so all the snails in the way get moved one by one and placed out of harms way until you get inside without treading on any...
