Once again marmite skids in the fuckin butterrrrrrrrrrr
Get the squeezy one?
Stories about "pregnant men". Where in reality it's a woman who wants to be a man so will be a fully functioning woman.
Is that like a dirty kind of analogy?
Big toothed cretin Rylan. How the fuck has this c**t made a living on T.V.

upcycling ..people that do up crappy furniture by painting it with chalk paint ...its still crappy furniture
Tbf it's usually well made dark real wood stuff of a bygone era, more sturdy than modern pinned and glued stuff of today.
Why waste it.
Save the trees I say. @):-;
Yeah, there's a woman at Fargo who does a fantastic job of doing up old furniture.
Fair play to them I say.
But strip it back, varnish it... or paint it properly.
Not the skiddy mess that passes for 'shabby-chic'!
Don't say 'skiddy mess,' skybluedan will be all over this like a shot.
Apple TV apparently has a feature where you can ask Siri "what did he say?" And it rewinds a bit and sticks the subtitles on (the fact this exists proves your point really)
My sound bar has a "night mode" that tones down the bass and ups the vocal range making it much easier to hear dialogue.
I wonder if like dark movies it's a ploy against piracy. I swear since the advent of the Internet every movie is shot in pitch black with a sock over the mike. Maybe Im just getting old.
It's like watching the beebs 24hr news. in the middle of the night with volume down so not to disturb neighbours then there's a blast of that frigging awful jingle every 30 seconds or so.
I was streaming a movie last night where music was consistently running in the background to the dialogue, inaudible, Infuriating.
When people leave you an answerphone message and recite their mobile number at 100mph so you have to replay the message 6 times to get their number!
Plus their name at 100mph too.
When you have to stay late at work and miss the match.
When you come away on holiday and it's pissing it down
When people phone you then ask you to "hang on a second" or try to put you on hold straight away.
Why ring if you aren't ready?
People who won't make their mind up about going to the game. I can't be doing with waiting until the day before to buy tickets cos you're mate who's been to one game in two years isn't sure yet.
Wasps been stung by one of the stripy bastards today just behind the ear and it's throbbing
At least it's stopped raining Tel!
Not in cromer it's pissing it down we have a room with a sea view so I am told
That's a shame mate.
Hope it improves for you.
Leaving tomorrow as we need to pick up our new puppy
Sea view? Must be when it gets up to the window.
The Premier League & it being the only league in the country that exists!
....or ever existed.
Sci fi films where they imagine the future and there are giant leaps forward obviously in technology and space travel etc., but they then allow little aspects firmly rooted in the present to be on display.
Just watched Rogue One. Not a Star Wars fan anyway, but I still enjoyed it. However, stupid little things really annoyed me.
Aircraft marshalling I think it's called, when you taxi a plane on to a runway or into a hanger. The one where they wave the sticks about in front of the plane directing it. Well, why am I seeing that many centuries into the future? Surely you would have to envisage a future like that where this practise would have been done and dusted centuries before. We already have remote control and are talking of driverless cars very soon!!
Then there was an totally undetected rebel attack on an imperial base. No forewarning, just happened. Even now in this current day and age we can detect enemy planes approaching.
Last thing that annoyed me was they were looking for a master switch to switch off a shield. Lo and behold, it is one big lever out in the open, with no security access codes or security and all you had to do was to go and pull it.
Telecommunications in this sci fi things always seems to lack forward thinking too. Scientists are already predicting now that in the future we will have computer style chips inbedded and implanted under our skin and we will be able to access info, call people, phone and send messages etc.
So why in films set in the 23rd or 24th century do we still have people in headphone sets and mics talking to each other?
Star Wars is in the past
People starting sentences with Mate! or Awww Maaate!. Its getting right up there with people starting sentences with So.
Why have I been traveling to work in a small Hyundai for the last 5 years then? I could have gone by spaceship and been there in about 12 seconds.
If you speak to a big Star Wars fan there must be a reason.
My wife called me mate the other day I asked her to stop, women calling each other mate is not great either.
It's dirt cheap at auctions as well. More pleasing to the eye most of it also before you even do anything with it. That's the way I'll be rolling in the future.
Separate names with a comma.
