    The Royal Family

    Very interesting times at the moment. Prince Andrew's involvement with convicted child abusers Prince Philip looks to be on his last legs Prince Harry trying to opt out of the family business and having showdown talks today with the boss.

    The '20s

    Not off to a very good start. But much can happen in ten years. What are your predictions for the 2020's? What are your hopes and fears? What are your personal goals?
  3. I'll start. English beer is overrated.
  4. In case you want to talk about Christmas for some reason.
  5. Strengths? Weaknesses? What are you good at? Shit at? What makes you, you? Do you ever analyse your character? As I get older, I analyse myself, but more so the affect I have on others. Even 2 or 3 years ago, I wouldn't think too much about anything I said.. Maybe it's having children, maybe it's age or a mixture of both. I'd say something like "I think too deeply", but I don't think that's necessarily true to be honest. I do think I "feel" more about certain things when I compare my reaction to something, to my wife's reaction. We've just come back from Las Vegas, where everything is BIG and in your face. I walk around with my mouth open and my wife just takes it in her stride. When we got back and saw my kids, I welled up a bit at their reaction to seeing us. I think maybe I feel nostalgia quite vividly compared to her, but I couldn't quantify it. I want to be everywhere at once. I get somewhat jealous of other peoples experiences for no reason. It doesn't manifest itself any particular way, but I'll compare myself to whoever it may be to see if I've done "better or worse".. Not sure why.. I love learning about stuff.. I'd sit and listen to anything really, BUT I lose interest if whatever I'm learning about gets too in depth. Not sure if that's familiar to anyone. I'd love to know everything about everything, but I lose focus on everything when I'm content enough. That isn't particularly helpful when it comes to education. I'd never be able to become a Mechanical Engineer because even though I find stuff interesting, knowing too much about... I dunno... an Air Handling Unit is boring, right? I know a bit about a lot I guess. I really, actively enjoy winding people up and seeing how far I can push/annoy that person until they actually get angry.. Why? No idea, I hate the thought of upsetting people.
  6. Partly triggered by the flu jab debate in General Chat, I felt like the health issue deserved a dedicated thread. Complain about your man flu, debate the economics of the NHS, discuss the latest in medical science, get diagnosed with VT AIDS, whatever. Starting off with... cancer. It's a grim topic, we've lost more than one VTer to it and it's taken several of my friends and relatives, but treatments and survival rates are incomparably better now than when I was a kid, and it was pretty much a death sentence. But that got me thinking about the whole public v. private healthcare debate. Are there any stats on cancer survival rates in the USA as compared to countries with publically funded healthcare? Because although it's now more treatable, those treatments are expensive. If you have cancer and money in the US, you're probably well placed to get the best care. But if you haven't got money? Breaking Bad was food for thought, but what's the reality like? Are cancer death rates in America significantly worse than (say) Europe?
  7. I'm sure we've done this before but can't find it. What would the perfect Premier League lineup be? You know we always here about the clubs that deserve to be at the top table, the proper clubs, the big clubs... But what's the definitive lineup for you? Is it all the classic titans of English football, including the ones that have been lost to fallow decades? Does it have a few of the unlikely names to get some success in recent years like Leicester? Or perhaps some of the plucky minnows to play at the highest level in the last 20 years make the cut? It's a harder question than it appears...
  8. Talk about sparklers melting kids hands off and your neighbours setting fire to their gardens because the councils are skint and cant afford a proper bonfire or something.
  9. In case anyone wants to talk about Halloween
  10. ok, Useless had an idea for a thread, your favourite animal might just be a place to post cool photos of sharks, might lead to a debate about shitty sly cats versus sexy wise wolves first person to mention honey badgers or post a photo of a muppet drummer gets a wedgie currently my fave animal is: fox
  11. We've had a things that piss you off that shouldn't thread that went on for hundreds of pages. So I thought I'd start a more positive one. About things that cheer you up or make you feel good when you've been a bit down. If this makes it even 100th as long as the 'things that piss you off...' thread I'll be amazed! So anyway what's happened to you recently that's cheered you up or made you feel good. Anything really. From an unexpected phone call from someone you haven't heard from in ages, to finding a fiver in your jeans that you'd forgotten about. Maybe you've got a holiday to look forward to. Come on people let's have some positivity! I'll start us off. I go to Germany on Thursday for 9 days, followed by a day at the Notting Hill Carnival. Last weekend my best mate asked me to be best man at his wedding. I kind of thought that I would be anyway, it's was always going to be me or one other. But just to hear him say it felt good. And then to hear him tell his wife to be that there was no way he was getting married at the World Cup in Brazil if I wasn't going to be able to go (insurance issues relating to my illness, same as not being able to go to this World Cup). Finally after tomorrow I get four weeks off chemo, which will be great (especially as it means I'm off treatment for the Germany trip. So we've all got miserable things in our lives (me more than most probably) so come on, let's hear something good in your life or something that's cheered you up recently.
  12. Ok state your poll answer (I have been waiting years to do this for you Rob and I know you have waited longingly for it too) and then explain your reason for your answer...
  13. Big Think - This may be a worse case scenario generally, but I actually think some industries job losses will be even more acute. I'm currently working with people developing systems that will put many thousands out of work. So if you think it's shit now, how do you think Tory England (cos let's face it, Scotland's leaving) is going to deal with this? We must surely also add May that is trying to right royally screw up education for the poor, just to hammer in an even bigger wedge between the haves and have nots. The medium and long term picture for the majority is a race for the bottom as far as quality of life is concerned. Sticking two fingers up at this failing society and getting out of it becomes more attractive with every passing year. Especially with independently developed technologies improving all the time. A growing number of my friends are seeking alternatives. A few are proper hippy types in permaculture collectives and such. Another is raising a family in a yurt. This isn't quite as drastic as it sounds. It's a multi yurt, a large central space with smaller connected yurts - Think glamping more than camping. Others have moved to warmer climes and have installed solar power equipment. They grow much of their own food and trade with local farmers for dairy and meat products. They work in the UK over Summer to cover their bills such as N.I contributions. Another friend is making a 'Hobbit House' under a hill - Though I must admit her outside toilet gives me the fear! She should have an inside bog at some point. Her guest house is nearer completion. Visiting folks over Christmas it became obvious even friends earning good money were wanting out. I signed up to a couple of off grid collectives and it surprised me how much has been forgotten. For example it's possible to grow Mediterranean fruit further north in walled enclosures, as they create their own microclimate. Throw in a couple of polytunnels and you're starting to get towards being self sufficient for fruit and veg. Mixing the old and the new seems like the way to go. Septic tanks under the garden that break down effluent into nutrients that slowly pass through the walls of the tank and into your garden. These folks get a quite a bit of power out of a fairly small pipe. Apologies to Darren and the Tree Hugger thread. I'd discussed this with maqroll before, and I don't think you have to be a tree hugger to want something different in today's World.
  14. Following on from the previous thread, a new thread was advised to be started so here it is. Instant barbecues. What on earth? Horrible little things.
  15. I think has been mentioned in another thread but maybe an open discussion about it. Think its hard to look past Roger Federer he is such an immense athlete and still going at 37. For example he is 8 months older than John Terry and Tennis is a more physically demanding sport than Football. Just incredible Other names to be included could be Gretzky, Serena Williams and if they keep it up consistently for another 6 or 7 years Ronaldo and Messi
  16. Lots of discussion currently on these. They're getting worse. **** vile cynical money grubbing and has to be getting close to getting gambling regulations involved soon. They're shit. Jim Sterling had some good videos recently on them, might link to them later here.

    Would You...

    ...shag the Queen?
  18. What's the biggest thing you can think of? ONLY FRIGGIN' KIDDING!! HAR HAR. No, I'm somewhat fascinated by life in the 60s and 70s at the minute.. it's from my old man and mom, who lived through the time. But there's loads of things and questions I'm asking him about that time like; What was it like before motorways? The M5 was built outside my mom's mom's house, and she used to sit on the side waiting ages for a car to come past.. now look at the ****. It seemed we went from Steam engines, to electric really quickly.. when did diesels fit in? What did you think when they pulled up all the local train stations? As my parents were never from affluent families, it be interesting to know what life was like for people from the middle classes in those days. Having cars when not many people did etc. A lot happened and I'll think of more, feel free to ask more, but it would be cool to get the people in their 40/50/60s answers (if they don't mind!!)
  19. Driving to work seems to get slower and slower, and thats even without the hassle of finding somewhere to park. It got me thinking on average how far you could drive before you hit road works - ? - I had a figure in my mind of maybe 10-11 miles - but very unscientifically I know - I reckon the figure is about 6 (and I don't work in Central Birmingham) 9 Mile trip to villa park yesterday - I encountered 3 sets - Friday night I drove 15 miles to Boldmere 2 sets 6 miles to work - I currently encounter 1 - although thinking back throughout the year it has on occasions been 2 or 3 Staggering really.

    Property

    Afternoon fellow Villians! I've just got started in a new career in property and was wondering if any other members on here were involved and what you do? It would be good to connect!
  23. So, less than a week to go. Certainly has crept up on me this year. Do not feel festive this year at all mainly because i've been ill since I got back from my holiday a month ago! No Xmas shopping done yet and haven't even listened to any Xmas songs either I missed out on a festive gig tonight (mate's band at Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath) and will probably miss my office Xmas party on Friday. What has everyone got planned? Hopefully I'll be well enough to visit my folks in their new gaff on the day itself. Other than that, not a lot.

    Flatulence

    Funny things, farts. They are unique and varied. Some are sweet, some are loud, some are soft, some are destructive. They bring us laughter and relief but also great shame and embarrassment. Sometimes I wonder if the totality of human flatulence is affecting the ozone layer. You could hear my grandfather coming from rooms away because he'd fart while walking. Each step would trigger an additional release, propelling him onward. Because he was virtually deaf at the time, I doubt he heard the commotion. Lately I've had bazooka farts. A sudden surge of gas bottled up by my sphincter and then just as quickly booming outward with a satisfying baritone.
  25. I figure that by the end of this thread, the Flatulence thread will look highbrow. I just did a double take because I didn't know what I just swallowed. Dunno if it was a bite of the pizza I'm eating or a string of congealed blood dangling from the roof of my mouth because I had my rear molar pulled earlier today and I've been leaking blood. Pretty barbaric visit. He had to slice and dice around my gum line and make three saw cuts around the tooth before he took a set of jumbo pliers and twisted the thing out of there. The dental assistant was making pained sounds throughout. Not very helpful. But yeah, I've been reckoning with this swinging tendon of congealment, trying not to swallow it.
