  1. Catalonia Independence?

    The violence shown by Police was absolutely disgusting. It was also so stupid politically that I could almost believe the riot police were actors hired by the seperatist movement to curry favour. They've drawn the sympathy of the entire world to Catalonia and it's plight, as well as making the Spanish government look like an oppresive monster. If you're ignoring the vote, why not just ignore the vote?
  2. The retro gaming thread!

    My missus got me a SNES classic, absolutely love it! It's amazing how 20 years later, I still remember all the tricks and secret little hidey holes from Donkey Kong Country. Really hope they do a N64 Classic, Mariokart 64 remains the greatest pickup and play multiplayer game of all time.
  3. U.S. Politics

    This line is getting blurrier and blurrier with Trump now demanding that a rule be introduced banning kneeling from occuring. The NFL have been entirely supportive of the players, and Trump's rhetoric has only worked to unite the NFL, not even really for the BLM cause, but in support of tbeir first amendment rights.
  4. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I **** hate the post office. Unsure how it works in the UK, but in Australia we have our nationalised Australia Post. The individual post offices themselves seem to be run as franchises, and they are always owned staffed by the worst deadshit **** imaginable. They're always slow, they're always rude, and there is literally nothing anybody can do about it because they have a captive audience. Short of a private company coming in and trying to take over the sector, we're stuck with them. Overall the post system has never let me down apart from when i've had to deal with these semi-literal potatoes.
  5. Ratings & Reactions: Burton v Villa

    You hate to get ahead of yourself as a Villa fan because we've been burned before, but perfect last couple of games. I really looks like we've clicked. Keep it up lads!
  6. U.S. Politics

    Yeah I acknowledge no active action is being taken by the government, but the hypocrisy is more to the point. The far right in the US will drag out the first amendment as soon as anyone questions anything they say even in the most minor of ways, and yet here they are demanding action be taken against people for exercising their constitutional right to a peaceful protest. The President himself no less is demanding the NFL take action. I just feel it treads massively on the toes of the first amendment which these people, in only slightly different circumstances, would say is above reproach.
  7. U.S. Politics

    I genuinely can't believe the cognitive dissonance with regards to the NFL kneelers and the first amendment. It's staggering. The 1st amendment literally states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." And you've got the President and millions of "patriots" campaigning for these guys to be fired because they've exercised their first amendment rights. The same Americans that in any other context would shoot you dead if you questioned their right to free speech.
  8. Star Wars: Disney Era

    Yeah really happy with that. I loved TFA. It felt so much more authentically Star Wars than the prequels, which have become basically unwatchable IMO.
  9. Bum Bag, Man Bag or No Bag At All

    I only go pockets because if I had to carry a bag around i'd forget about it. Pocket size is always a consideration when buying trousers. I should probably have a smaller wallet than I do but it gets the job done
  10. Ratings & Reactions: Cardiff v Villa

    I feel like such an idiot for feeling positive and supporting Bruce all preseason. What a **** dreadful performance.
  11. Pokémon GO

    In South Australia there is a really good community group based on the Discord chat app. It's always pretty easy to get a group going, and I found we could take down a Zapdos with 6 of us. I imagine there would be similar facebook groups in most major cities, but the Discord chat is good because it has different little threads for different areas so it's easy to coordinate. When I caught my Zapdos I was able to get on the Discord group and had 5 people meet me at the nearest shopping centre within about 30 minutes. We did 3 raids together and I caught him on my 3rd one. I have several workmates that play but we hadn't managed to go out and raid in the time that Zapdos had been available so it was cool to be able to get people mobile so quickly.

    Clearly had no beef with the first rider
  13. Obsession with a colour - opinion

    How much does the content of your websites clash? Nobody owns orange, but I guess if you're in direct competition then it's probably iffy from a marketing perspective. Even then it's really all about how it's used, so i'd need to see the websites for context.
  14. Pokémon GO

    Caught Lugia and Moltres in back to back legendary raids yesterday. It was my first catch in 9 Lugia raids but I am 1/1 for Moltres Now just need the Unown to have every Pokemon I can catch in Australia
  15. Pokémon GO

    Oh I also have a shiny magicarp! But it's 10cp, so a lot of levelling to go. I'm using it as my buddy because it's best value for walking distance and I can use rare candies to level up my Tyranitar and Dragonite. I'm hoping to do some more raiding to get a few more Tyranitars in the coming weeks.
