    Im dyslexic lol so sometimes type things wrong, it should be groggy but I guess you really knew that.

    Yes I tried pedalling forward but its not moving right, if I pedal backwards its easy but the wheel doesnt move.

    I literally use all my force and still strugle to move the wheel at all when pedalling forward, I have used exercise bikes at uni gym and town gym before so know how to pedal and so its not down to force.

    I know it may be a stupid question but didn't you at least try pedalling before you bought it?

    Got it at a boot sale as guy was packing up so had no time really and the guy offered to deliver it for free.

    Cost me £10 for the bike and a walking machine thing(where you hold handles and it lifts your up a bit)

    Start jogging, it will become a hobby instead of excercise, and once you are fit enough start running and then move it up to sprinting, trust me, you either dedicate your life to losing weight until it's all gone or don't bother at all.

    This thread has potential

    A shop in Ayr does it, according to a website only a dozen shops in Scotland(or maybe the UK) stock it.

    Didnt seem to foam up anywhere near as much as I remember it to though. but stains your fingers lol.

    Has a list of ingredients on it though.

    Is it a Scottish thing,i've never heard of it........

    Scotch eggs arent Scottish and no one knows if Scotch pies are Scottish especially since they are sold worldwide.

    Scotch is a drink not a term for Scottish items.

    The term Scotch can be used for a type of food item but not any food item that comes from scotland.

    Scotch pie is mutton, not a pie from scotland lol

    Scotch has been used in the past as a word for the scottish but in modern society it can be considered offensive, Scot is the term used to describe Scottish people now

    Yeah I noticed you put that there and assumed it was there to try and trick me I was just saying they werent Scottish despite being called Scotch to back up that Scotch doesnt mean Scottish.

    Scotch is seemingly used for certain styles of food and drink items from Scotland but not limited to Scotland.

    My local bakers call Scotch Pies "meat pies" and a different type of pie similar to Scotch pie is a Killie Pie, named of course after Kilmarnock.

    Bullcrap. Buy a dictionary.

    Is it offensive to Scots? Yes, a little.
    Can it mean something/one from Scotland? Yes, of course so.

    Do you have any proof of that?

    I find it strange as the majority of Scottish people I know say its not a term for something/one from Scotland so its only seems to hugely be the English that think so.

    So what makes them so special? I would think The Scottish people knew what was Scottish just a little more than the English would!

    ^^This

    Scotch is an adjective that basically means "of Scotland" but is mainly used for food and drink now, but to use it to describe a person is a bit like calling all americans "yanks" etc and can be considered offensive

    That's why they're called a Scotch Pie down here, and just a pie in Scotland..... you're already in the place they originate from, so don't need to make the reference when advertising them.

    Shame they taste like crap down here and aren't a patch on the ones I normally bring back with me, same as (scotch) Irn Bru ......



    Well I guess the majority of people you know from Scotland are ignorant then.

    Not really, we do have scotch pies up here too, not just in supermarkets even big Scottish pie making firms sell Scotch pies(and curry pies and similar such products lol)

    What I was going on about when I said its not used to refer to items was in the sense that you wouldnt call Scottish milk "scotch milk" or "scotch bread" just because it came from scotland unless it was noticably different, its just milk and bread.

    Sorry but what are you reffering to as a scotch pie? they have mutton in them if i buy one in greggs or any bakery or a supermarket i ask for a scotch pie, if i asked for anything else i would get a funny look followed by "what type of pie"
