@chrisp65 makes a good point. Stop going on about pizza, lads.

I think it's a shame that delivery places don't often do calzones.

Sounds like a need to try Asda's build your own then. 

Had a phase of eating Sainsbury's, but went off them, not sure why.

Finally getting fibre optic broadband installed at home, one of the "living out in the sticks" cons is going away.

Proper porn requires 1 Gbps right?

26 pages on which is the best pizza to have delivered to the door.

This is why we have to have Brexit you snowflakes.

Get off your arses and walk down the chip shop for proper food. 

Soon you'll have to go out and kill your own pizza.

I've been planting crusts in the garden since October. Looking forward to my pizza tree in the spring!

I've been studying it, in depth, like really really studying it.

It appears to be an open cheese and tomato sandwich, heated up in an oven.

But for about £12.

 

Chrispy's Pizza Emporium and Home Delivery Service opens this coming Friday.

For an extra fiver, we'll chew the **** thing for you.

My German Uncle was a young boy during the war.  His older brother was press ganged into the army on his 16th birthday and had to man an anti aircraft gun.  He didn't want to do it but they threatened to shoot him so he just used to shoot up into the sky nearly but not quite at the aircraft.

I feel sorry for you Brits if either Dominos or Pizza Hut is even in contention for best pizza.  Every place I've lived in the US has a number of pizza places far superior to anything they produce.   The good places are usually just an independent place or part of a small, local chain.  Dominos was what we'd order late at night in college because it was still open, cheap, delivered, and after a few beers tasted just good enough to be worth the effort of eating.

The problem with the UK is people are obsessed with chains and knowing what they are going to get. 

If you opened an independent pizza restaurant with a vastly superior product and similar pricing next door to Domino's it would be a desolate empty place whilst people piled into Domino's. 

It's also destroying the UK pub.  Nothing warms my heart more than walking into a unique pub but most people seem to prefer some identikit chain pub which are everywhere.  It's getting harder and harder to find an independent pub.

Yep. This for me falls under 'things you don't get'. I cannot stand chain pubs, can't see why anybody would like them.

Apparently, that's the case for an awful lot of conscripts of any persuasion. Armies have a hard time getting recruits to shoot low enough to actually hurt anyone.

I think. Though it might be a myth I've just dreamt up.

Nope, it's true. The U.S. Army commissioned a guy called S. L. A. Marshall to interview infantrymen after combat (I think it was in the Korean War). His report came out as a book called "Men Against Fire". Turned out that, in a firefight, most of the shooting was done by only a handful of soldiers (usually veterans and NCOs) - the vast majority never fired their weapons at all.
