RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

As everyone is supposed to be avoiding this nocturnal virus and be cowering behind their curtains on the stroke of twelve for the first time in years I've worked a day.
Soul destroying and I won't be doing it again.
I'll take my chances that there will be enough shift workers and others moving around tomorrow after curfew.

Blackadder

Someone just put this up on twitter and I've not seen it before.

The ending of Blackadder was basically a mistake which turned into a cooperative work of genius.

Because that is where they see the best option to achieve their aims and doesn't affect my statement in any way.

RE: Trolls

I think the mistake is to view them from that perspective.
The intention to disrupt and unsettle recognises no side other than Putin/Russia's interest.

"..but this is still a decent start!"

Terrible stat when you think about it but we've already won 25% as many away matches as we did all last season.

If we get 6 points out of the next 12 I wont be disappointed.
Leicester in the Crappybow cup I'm not really fussed about but it would be a good match to shake that bad performance off and give some yoof a run out.

Maybe he'll start Saliba.

"Still top!"

Still true at Christmas and I'll get excited.

I do think we're capable of a bit more than most pundits think, which is outside the top four and probably sixth to eighth
The only two differing were Ian Wright, obviously, who predicts fourth and Micah Richards who reckons third.
My own opinion is that the Arteta factor will have us closer to those two than everyone else's 6th to 8th.

I see the neighbours tripped at the starting line.
Looks like Amazon's sequel could be 'Nothing Again' or 'Mourin No'

It's life Jim

...but not as we know it.

The Sky at Night team were privy to the announcement today and produced a very good program covering it.

Possible acid loving bacteria 50 kilometres above the surface of Venus.
If proven it confirms this sci fi loving plebs belief that life will turn out to be like a bloody rash and in every interplanetary nook and cranny.

The search for intelligent life on this planet continues.

Note: It also confirms that scientists are toe curlingly weird and have not learnt from those bloody awful early morning open university programs

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

The only vague hope this country has before this bunch of idiots wrecks it is that the current rule breaking legislation gets thrown out and the Tories throw Johnson out with it.
We then have to hope that the 1922 committee cut up rough enough to get an outside bet into number 10 who chucks out Cummings and most of the present cabinet.

Oh and if I could have the right six numbers for Saturday as well please.

Farewell Mrs Peel

The passing of Diana Rigg cannot go unmentioned on a site like this.

Wonderful actress and a serious risk to young boy's eyesight when playing Emma Peel.
You have to remember we'd only just got 3 (yes three) channels when she started in The Avengers. Three channels, no such thing as video recorders, no internet.
Still a commanding presence as Oleanna Tyrell in GOT just a couple of years back.

"So, has anyone broken the law today in a "specific and limited way"?

Today I parked on a pavement in London for 10 minutes, while I popped into a shop.
"

I think 'specific and limited' as defined would have involved blocking the door with your car until the goods were handed in through your window.

Don't I recall that he had every intention and even made a start at closing it but circumstance and info he wasn't privy to until sworn in made that impossible?

RE: [VIDEO] Dune (2020) slated for December

Absolutely loved the book(s).
I remember watching the Lynch attempt with a mixture of disbelief and disinterest and I've never chosen to re-watch it as there's always some paint that needs watching.

Initial impression of that trailer is somewhat hopeful but Paul looks woefully miscast.

If you enjoy Banksy's work can I just point in the direction of Cold War Steve.
Very prolific and usually on the money.

No connection, wish there was, just a fan.

"Basically, if you voted for Brexit and you voted for Boris, the only person you can blame for how it turns out is yourself.
"

My views on both are well known but I think you have to agree that a significant amount of voters voted against Corbyn and Momentum rather than for Johnson and the ERG led conservatives.
Therefore they were in the boat and up the creek before having to watch Johnson throw the paddle overboard.

Stuff you can't part with.

I've been going through some old equipment and just about to brave the loft as I've found a dealer that will take my old B&W darkroom stuff, Durst 600 etc.
I have some pieces that even though they may not work I can't bear to part with.
An old Weston Master V meter that would cost way more than it's worth to fix but it's been with me practically since I picked up a camera.
A Lunasix 3 meter that was so startled at seeing light after bloody ages it's resurrected itself and works!

A Nikon F2 that does work but have you seen the price of 35mm film now.

I've even still got my original Box Brownie.

I think I may have to negotiate with the management to get a display case for them all.

Hands up anyone who watched the maths.
Yup.
Just the couple of nerds at the front.

I finally got to Kennedy a year or two back, every time in Florida before it was kids and 'That's boring we don't want to go there'.
Sat in the little Gemini that Shepard went up in which makes the moment you see the shuttle up close an even more '**** me that's big' moment.

If you get the chance go.
