Brings this quote/joke to mind:

 

"There will be 12 hits; me hitting you, you hitting the ground, and then me listening to The Eagles' Greatest Hits."

 

I'm on the woman's side....totally justifiable actions. The Eagles are the musical equivalent of fingernails scraping a blackboard.

Here's something I found on twitter:

Companies should realise having a sense of humour is great PR. Webuyanycar are one of the many contemptible companies (eg payday loans) taking advantage of people in difficult financial times. Should've grabbed a rare opportunity for positive press with both hands, instead they make themselves look like idiots.

really doesn't shock me with the shite you get on tv nowadays...can't be any worse than big brother or x factor or that essex thing

me neither but C4 seems to thrive on controversial stuff to the extent theyre just trying to out-do themselves over and over. BBC Three is following in those footsteps, im just amazed its allowed and, more appalled, theres an audience for it :(

Can't look beyond that in only to reiterate, there is so much shit on television now (Channel Four is one of the worst perpetrators) that is it really that much of a surprise. TV licenses should be free to all, there is so much fucking trash to view now.

 

Needless to say, won't be watching, and they bring in Frostrup, because she has a 'dirty' voice, it's been mentioned before ?

Not "odd" news but insane....

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24761216

 

How much has this complete non story cost the tax payer? Millions for sure.....over an argument that would be sorted in thirty seconds if it happened in a primary school playground ("...he called me a pleb miss.."). The world's gone mad.

Complete irrelevant chicken litter.

 

And how is the word 'pleb' an insult ?

 

At a complete loss. I'd give them some profanities to really get in a fucking flap over, but this is not above nonsense.

You've got to laugh.

 

Even at half past four in the morning after a few intoxicating beverages it made things no more impressive. First impression, some eight year old kids with some crayons, but you know how the most simple thing can resemble Renoir, Rembrandt, or da Vinci to some idiots. It didn't take long to lose any, and all, interest on this issue.

I wouldn't be quite so lenient with words regarding this issue, but can only hope some incident occurs where she, (him, it, whatever the fuck it is) has their air supply cut off or gets slowly asphyxiated by such means and perishes and that will be the end of it. Not one of our nations greatest exports.

I found that really interesting too, thanks for posting it.

 

Likewise.

 

Amazing that such a remote and beautiful place is so littered with corpses (and rubbish). I've seen TV documentary stuff where people have had to leave others to die up there; tragic but it's the risk you take. Too many amateurs trying it I think, it's like Piccadilly Circus at times in the climbing season.

It made me want to watch Touching the void.

 

 

Seen it and read the book Louis. Book is better (as they generally are).

 

Mountaineering has always fascinated me from a kid, though as I'm shit scared of heights it's not something I could ever have had a go at.

 

Went part way up Ben Nevis once :unsure:.

Story you can argue the merits of, think it's a bit of an overreaction myself....

But one bit made me laugh...

 

An extra who was filming on Sunday told the Mirror: "This was grotesquely disrespectful and offensive. I can't believe I wore an SS uniform on Remembrance Sunday."

 

So why did you :huh:?

Another one here...people fighting off a croc on a golf course....

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01lgd0y

 

Bit disappointing that they don't recommend which club to use in the circumstances, just said they hit it with "a golf club". I'd have gone for a seven iron personally, it always was my "go to" when I was having a bad time.

I like Lady Gaga.

 

I found this fascinating, even if it isn't strictly news. Beware, the link contains images of corpses on Mount Everest.

Just seen this. More meat for the bones....
