See this dude, giving the thumbs, at right? That's David Batchelor from Perth, Scotland. He was recently charged £150 for breach of the peace for feeding pigeons - not only in a thong, dear readers, but in thong that was on backwards.
Apparently while totally wasted, he was compelled to feed pigeons in his backwards thong. Asked why he did it, he replied "I don't know. I was just feeding the birds and if I was wanting to do that I would just go down town and get a whore".
At least he's honest and self-aware to realise that the only way any woman would ever sleep with him, was if she was paid.
Another person that makes Scotland - more specifically, Glasgow - awesome is Limmy (you can read his blog here). He's a comedian that Paul introduced me to last year after he spotted him walking around Glasgow Green. He's been around for a while and Paul made me listen to his World of Glasgow podcasts from 2005. You MUST listen to his podcast of "Xander"; I will never look at the Glasgow Science Centre the same.
Seeing as I have my finger on the cultural pulse of Glasgow, be on the look out for We Are The Physics - a Glaswegian band that Paul's wee cousin is a member of but are also due to be the NEXT BIG THING. Seriously, look out Franz Ferdinand: not only because I hate your music (well, except for that one song that mentions Tesco) but because We Are The Physics will totally out rock you.
Also, if you haven't heard already, Glasvegas are the band of 2008. Just sayin'.
Oh, and apparently the Scottish film, Hallam Foe (starring Billy Elliott kid, Jamie Bell) will be released in Canada/USA in May. Go see it but until then check out the trailer:
