  1. What Off Topic so clearly needs is a thread devoted to stuff other people do, or wear, or eat, or enjoy, etc. that you think is bonkers. Kindof like a Religion thread, except including (but not limited to) all human activity in every possible field of human endeavour. People who don't think it's bonkers can then explain why it isn't, in fact, bonkers after all. I'll start, with a fairly trivial example: Sportswear. Why do people pay for branded t-shirts (etc.) made of plastic fibres that look crap and get smelly very quickly because of the plastic. Why not wear a nice c
  2. Without wanting to get all Mumsnet, anyone got much of an idea of costs? I am thinking of getting the front Upstairs and Downstairs bay window done (the type with a large flat front window and angled windows either side of it, i.e not an 8 pane curved bay) plus 2 other regular windows to the front of the house. Fortunately all the back ones were done just before we moved in. Anyone got any idea of the costs? I'm clueless if it would be like £2k or £15k. Any advice appreciated.

    Hobbies

    Inspired by @mjmooney not 'getting' Lego in an Airfix world, what are your hobbys? Obviously we have a fair few gymhounds here and the odd musician, and I guess technically the gaming forum is dedicated to a hobby, but it's there anything else you do for the sheer enjoyment of it (fnarr)? Or is life too short? Over the last couple of years I've become a bit of a modeller. Specifically Gundam models. Perhaps a bit odd given my long standing dislike of anime, and the fact I've barely watched any of the many, many (...many) Gundam series there's been over the years, but I like the desig
  4. A thread to put your examples of modern football being rubbish. I'm expecting this to be at 1000 pages by the end of the season. I'll start. This is the Madrid derby tonight, at Atletico's new Wanda Metropolitano stadium. Firstly the stadium name is horrible because of the sponsor, but we're kind of used to that nonsense now. But look at the advertising boards. Seemingly it's a system called "Chroma" that shows different advertising boards on TV than in the stadium based on your location.

    Watches

    I think you can tell a lot about a chap by the kind of timepiece he wears. I don't spend a lot of money on clothes, I don't drink much, don't have a football season ticket and don't smoke. But I do like a nice watch, and when my Euromillions numbers come in, I want one of these: Made my Roger Smith here on the Isle of Man, he's widely considered to be one of the greatest living watchmakers, and there's something like a two year waiting list for one of his hand made watches, that can cost upwards of £50,000. So what do you go for? £9.99 Casio digital, or £25,000 Hublot?
  6. Isn't it because he was German and the rest are Belgian or Dutch? And the van in Beethoven's name isn't capitalised and the others are, which leads me to think that the Dutch / Belgian Van's are part of the Surname and the German Beethoven van isn't part of his surname. It's not something I've ever thought about or researched before your post so I could be entirely wrong Ludwig van Beethoven, was of Flemish descent (his grandfather was Lodewijk van Beethoven), despite his German birth. I suspect that it's the peculiar treatment of the cognate von in German (reserved for nobility an
  7. Really just a place to drop the occasional polling graphic or whatever to cover the SNP, or Irish Unification or Mebyon Kernow. SNP now appear to be polling above 50% even with the don’t knows removed from the stats. You’re in a potentially tricky place when you’re telling the majority that they can’t have a democratic vote. (apologies if a version of this thread already exists, I’ve lost it if it does)
  8. Is he as big a canut as he appears to be from what I've read and heard/seen? Videos of himself playing guitar etc. Got his own blog under a pseudnym where he posts completely inane drivel which he thinks is profound. Rows with his missus which end up with the coppers being called. Seems he's done the teaching profession a favour, anway, as that's his last job in that line of work. Will also be spending some time at Her Majesty's Pleasure, When/If he comes back ... I have no idea, I don't know him, just her (his cousin)
  9. Anyone else participating? , did it last year and was a lot harder than I thought but did it with a few people which made it a tad easier, If so good luck and see you on the other side
  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. I just had a pint in the pub (Moorhouses Pendle Witches Brew) then Large Cod, Chips and Gravy from the local chippie. I am now happy (and full).
  12. We already seem to be getting baubles deep in the season. Kevin the carrot is in mild peril and the new John Lewis ad has disappointed. As @lapal_fan said last year..... In case you want to talk about Christmas for some reason.
  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 bot

    Memory Lane

    What are some of your more vivid memories over the years? I was just remembering how as kids, we used to order butterfly knives and throwing stars from this massive catalogue of cheesy 80's "Ninja" gear. We were obsessed.

    2021

    So not long now before we leave behind probably the worst year the world has seen since WW2. What does 2021 hold for us? What are your hopes, dreams and musings about what 2021 might bring. It seems likely to start off even worse than 2020 ends but hopefully the vaccines can start to make a quick improvement if they can roll them out fast enough. Personally I just want to see people more, go to a pub. My son turned 18 in November and all he has wanted to do is buy me a beer. That is something I look forward to. I hope the economy will bounce back quickly. So many peopl
  16. Following the success of Bedlam on Channel 4, I thought it would be interesting to get people's perspectives on mental health problems, particularly as at any given point 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in their lifetimes. FWIW I have not experienced a mental health problem but I work in the field and find the stigma to be the worst thing, particularly in terms of stopping people looking for support

    Weather...

    I did look for a topic but couldn't see one.. Nayson last night posted about the Portsmouth football match being cancelled - here I was stuck slap bang in the middle of it - for some of the loudest and brightest storms I have ever been, The flat where I live was shaking at some points! Anyway, I managed to grab a few clips on my mobile, but also wanted to see what the weather is like where you guys are? (Strange one this because it was originally a football question and I also wanted to mention that the local team (Newport IW) carried on playing last night - http://www.iwradio.co.
  18. As suggested by @Demitri_C Flat caps and whippets? Or Barbour jackets and labradors? Go!
  19. i will start at the moment i am playing saints 2 (i know i am behind in the series) what a game so much to do i think i will be on it for years. some strange things on it like covering buildings in shite and a camera show? none the less good fun what game you currently on?
  20. Anyone interested in these? Are they the real deal? I'm sure someone on here like @P3te must have used one before. The Oculus Rift will cost you £500 plus delivery charges from overseas. I would have been very tempted if it was about £300.
  21. To save the discussion getting caught up elsewhere... Trans causes are becoming more known about and more relevant with it. Of course it's brought with it a pushback - infamously from JK Rowling setting her legacy on fire to add like this ...which has lead to a few other voices being raised in dissent. Like this And of course Graham Linehan has basically ruined his life in the 'debate'.

    Dogs...

    Rival thread Nothing better than a good walk with the dogs in either summer or winter IMO.
  23. I think this is a topic that will be definitely more common in the coming months. I think its something Football will need to take more seriously as more research is done. A lot of the 1966 World Cup team have suffered dementia and more modern players like Alan Shearer has said he is quite worried about this from the amount of headers and aeriel duels he faced. Its also not football, Thompson from the 2003 rugby team has been dignosed at 43 and filing a lawsuit along with 10 other players of a similar age. Ice Hockey, American football have had issues in the past so you have to wonder
