That'll be your equivalent of a "Marmite Miner" ... Sorry ... I'll get my coat ... TAXI!!! :) Back to "buggered". "Buggeration!" is considered is a mild expletive. I would concur that "buggered" is generally used to mean "spent"; worn-out, broken, barely working in the case of objects, or a person who is shattered. It is not used in its more historical sense much. We would also say, "I'll be buggered if I'm going to do that" which is perhaps a less na´ve use of the word, but would never say "get buggered". Bob, are you planning a visit and just brushing up on a little lingo? If you are, actually, we do say "get buggered" ... We say it a lot ... Especially to police(wo)men :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
