  1. Unlucky in front of goal and lucky at the back. Probably deserved a draw on balance. That said, why we continue to drop deeper and deeper at the latter stages and cannot put two passes together, apart from hoofing the ball 40 yards down the line, is very frustrating to watch. 6/10 performance, Martinez and Watkins, Sari and Mings making up the majority of that score.
  2. And you'd think, what with all the current technology of deep-fakes and the counter ability of identifying them and warning people that the content is incorrect, that they'd ban simple racist words, which no-matter-how-they're-used-they're-racist. The companies are shitty.
  3. It has been said that should Marv, Sanson AND McGinn start a match at the same time, then Villa would have so much energy, that the ball would become magnetised 5 yards away from any one of our players. This is a problem for Smith, but one I believe he can probably over come with some strapping.

    That I agree with. It's a personal attack on her individually - and that's cruel - your examples would have been MUCH better, particularly in the context of that 10 second clip I saw. But I still don't think it's sexist!

    Sexism

    It's very hard to comment on anything if you're trying to shoe-horn in every individuals feelings. Grouping things is a pretty good system as it stands. The job is to not say racist or sexist or hurtful - but when people joke there's always going to be a "butt". Obviously we have laws which make certain things to say illegal, which is a good thing! I don't think it's sexist for the reasons I've previously pointed out (like 44% of her singles are about breakups ergo, people joke about her having a lot of relationships, or use her as a comparison, as the show did), but it's not

    Same. Like you, only knew him off Big Break when I was 10 or so. Saw one of his "stage shows" of Robin Hood on youtube via a "can you believe this prick?" thing and wow - what a dickhead, and the dwarf from Star Wars was in it too.. I got duped into going to watch Rob Chubby Brown when I was 20 at Dudley Town Hall.. That was genuinely one of the most painful nights of my life. People (inc women) somehow found him funny.

    What? I wouldn't say it. I've now seen the actual "thing" and it's not even a joke, it's used as dialogue as a simile for that woman's friend being a bit slaggy. That's not a kind thing to say, it's not a nice thing to use as a reference and whilst she doesn't mention actual sexual activity in the dialogue I guess most people would interpret it that way (without knowing anything about the show). I get why Taylor is upset. Maybe if the scene was between two men Leo DiCaprio would have been name-dropped - but it wasn't, so we'll never know the writers intent. I'd s

    If I'm reading it the way I'm reading it, then that doesn't work, or I'm reading it wrong. Care to elaborate?

    You can be offended by the joke, that doesn't matter - but that doesn't make it a sexist joke, just because the individual thinks it is - because it's not. She can feel however she wants, that's her choice.

    I don't think Steveo is offended - I just think he's wrong on this occasion.

    Sexism

    Isn't Taylor Swift more famous than them? I mean, the writers could have chosen any of them, but has probably chosen Taylor because she's more popular and more people know her, so the joke will hit a cord with more viewers? The writers could have picked anyone really, it's a celebrity joke - who gives a shit? The joke was probably shit, the show is probably shit, Taylor Swift is pretty shit and this argument is shit.

    Sexism

    The joke is about the fact she writes and sings so many songs about break ups. So she herself is putting it out there that she goes through so many break-ups. Not sexist, because she's put the info out there. Bit like Russell Brand is always labelled a womaniser or whatever, it's because he puts it out there. If Taylor didn't sing songs about breaking up, and they still wrote that joke, then yea, it's sexist because they're making assumptions about her. You can't go around making a name for yourself for doing something, and not having that something used in a comedi
  15. Should have bought Bowen when we had the chance - still maintain he's probably the best winger we could have bought at the time.
  16. Discipline will beat Leeds. If we lack it, try and beat them at pressing, we'll lose. Maintain composure, stay calm, move about when we have the ball, we'll be ok. It'll be a good game I think.
  17. Got a call from my old boss at a former employer, but he went off a year after I joined to start a new business, must have been oh what? 10 years now? He wants to interview me for a consultancy role for his business on Tuesday, but with his recruiting pro. Not heard back from my 3 stage interview - must have absolutely flopped at the last! (It's been a week). Not quite a bidding war for my exemplary services yet, but was close to one! (I'm shit at everything and in now way being serious about this).
  18. I know you have, but have you seen the amount of computing power which is required for data mining?!! The yield from setting a home-made on is about 8% AFTER your electricity bill. As you say - put an end to it and save 100m tonnes of carbon via power stations needing to supply the grid! For digital money!
  19. He's good at COD though.. On Twitter he only uses it to retweet Caribbean ladies tweets and asking anyone if they want to play COD
  20. Just been looking at google maps, as you do and found a mini UK in Norway. Maybe we could gather one of each region's accents and put them in place for some ROFLs I think the island is about 2.5km long and 750m wide.
  21. There are biological processes which define sex. You can be born with both but still have a ruling sex, because that person will still have periods/produce sperm - that's the ruling sex. Dunno what early fusion of xx/xy chromosomes means because it's literally the first thing to happen when a sperm fertilises an egg. The argument is on whether it's socially acceptable to be able to choose, based on feelings. I don't care really - be what you want as long as you're happy - I'll call you whatever you or someone else introduces me to you as - no worries. The other grey areas are
  22. Have you thought about moving house?
