  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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)
  4. 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.
  5. A thread to celebrate whatever happened on X years to the day. Funny, sad, political, sporting - an opportunity for dewy-eyed nostalgia. It's 28 years today since Maradona did the most iconic warm-up ever -
  6. 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).
  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. 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
  9. OK peeps, by popular request, I've started this retro gaming thread. No rules other than to reminisce and maybe lay out in as much detail as you want to what exactly your gaming history is, what your favourites are/were. Do you still play them? Online, retro machines, emulators etc. Anything goes, so have at it. My CV ! Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K+ (+ as in not the rubber button one), Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128K+2 Commodore Amiga 500 various PCs including a Blue Lightning BLX75 (oooh), a Playstatio
  10. 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
  11. 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. Image watching Villa v Small Heath on telly and seeing "'Arry's Tax Consultants" runnin
  12. It came up in another thread but probably deserves it's own thread... How safe do you find Birmingham? Is it a nice place? Is it better or worse than it used to be? This isn't tied to the events of the weekend but a general view on the atmosphere, people and how safe you feel. Is it better or worse than other major cities? Personally, in the ten odd years I've lived in the area and the 30 odd years I've been visiting the area I've been impressed with the improvements to the area aesthetically and the variety of restaurants and shops etc. On the flip side, I feel less safe at night th

    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
  14. The last couple of years has seen a real comeback for fighting games. We've had a new Street Fighter (and a revision), Netherrealm has given us a really good DC Comics fighter with Injustice 2, Tekken 7 was very well received, we got a new Mahvel, which bombed commercially but was actually considered quite good by the community I understand, today Dragon Ball Fighter Z (or Fighterz, which is stupid) comes out and so far word on that has been excellent (and it's gorgeous). Looking forward, there's a new Soul Calibur coming, and you'd get short odds on a new Mortal Kombat being announced at E3.

    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?
  16. 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
  17. Hey mates, I have to write a short story on a trip to UK during October and was wondering if there were any standard English/Scottish lore on All Hallow's Eve that we don't know about over here in the states? Is there a particular one or several that I should look for? Any help is appreciated, Thank you.
  18. 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

    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.

    Dogs...

    Rival thread Nothing better than a good walk with the dogs in either summer or winter IMO.

    Drugs

    I can`t figure out why drugs like coke and heroine are so popular and getting more and more popular ? I mean they are very addactive and once hooked that is your life as you know it flushed down the toilet.So what I can`t get my head around is that when a person is first offered horoine or coke, why don`t they just say, no thanks I like my life as it is.Why do they even try it knowing that the rest of their life is going to be focused on getting enough money for their next hit and nothing else ?
  22. 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.
