Gaslight Robbery 2012


Recommended Posts

Hello, Diodes here.

In view of the obvious problems we're having with transport I've come up with an alternative plan.

What about if we dig a 30 metre underground tunnel and come up directly under the loot.

It's such a far-fetched plan that no-one will think about it.

Diodes/Wheels/Robin/Whatshisname.

What about coming up in a bank under the ATM cash machine which actually contains less money when we rob it than we will have spent on building the tunnel.

We're currently dressed as Batman and Robin with ducks on our heads and custard-pie guns; the efficiency of the vehicle as regards a getaway device is hardly going to matter much - anyone with a motorised bouncy castle ? lol

Ok, got it. We wait for the next election and pass ourselves off as the Raving Monster Loony Party Battle Bus! :ph34r:

Diodes/Wheels/Robin/Whatshisname.

I want a real Sheffield codename.

My username on Sheffield History is just plain boring "DaveH", - a cut down version of my real name like many members use.

When I chose it I was just joining Sheffield History and never thought that I would eventually be a moderator and making several posts per day otherwise I would have chosen something a bit different.

Later, when I found a suitable avitar, Vulcan on top of the town hall, I thought of changing my username to "VULCAN", after the iconic statue on top of the town hall (not the race of aliens with pointed ears that Captain Spock comes from). By this time I had made about 2000 posts so I thought of "VULCAN" as also being a reference to the editorial column on page 6 of The Star, - very appropriate. Unfortunately by this time I was so well known on the site and people had made reply posts refering to me as "DaveH" that I decided against any change to avoid confusion when reading the threads.

For the purpose of this heist I want to be known as "Naarden". No one would then ever be able to trace me in Sheffield as every single Sheffielder is called "Naarden". If you don't believe me stand in Fargate on Saturday afternoon and shout "Hey, - Naarden" and every single person there will turn and look because they will think you are talking to them.

Richard, I don't make these casual comments up, I get them from real stories.

It was on the news and in the papers yesterday about it

I saw it, eight feet down, 30 feet along and then up all for £6,000 on New Years Eve when the cashpoint in Blockbusters was nearly empty - the Charity contribution was my idea for our ill-fated robbery - like a 50's Comedy ...

Isn't there a Carry On film where the robbers get caught but Sid James manages to hide the bag of loot in an old tree trunk first.

On their release from prison they go to reclaim the loot, only to find the area is now built up and the tree is in the back yard of a new Police station.

They spend most of the film humorously trying to retrieve it.

Can't remember what its called. It has Carry On stars in it but it may be one of those films which isn't actually called "Carry On.....something or other"

Hey hang on a minute, you're in on this Uke Lass.

A gun fits quite nicely into a ukelele case or a violin case.

and I could here these soldiers behind me laughing and saying " she's got the wrong

era , she thinks it's the 20s " that's true.

They thought I'd brought a machine gun. he he

Here's my contribution to the mock-up (well I think that read mock-up) picture.

It's a photo of the get-away vehicle being prepared for the big job.

You'll notice that it's a 10 litre model, ( 5 litres of acid in each battery ).

It should do us very well.

If the Feds catch up with us they'll fall about laughing giving us chance to speed away.

What, with "Girl Power", like the Spice Girls?

They all had codenames as well, which were more well known than their real names, - Ginger, Posh, Baby, Scarey and Sporty.
