    Sgt Hartman got a reaction from Horrified Onlooker in Buying pointless crap on the internet.   
    I came home pissed from the pub a few days ago and bought a fan blade from a jet engine on ebay.
    It turned up yesterday.
     
    What?

    F-91W pointless? Fuck off.
    I've now been wearing these for about 15 years. A direct response to the massive ostentatious watch fad that seemed to have infected consultants in the financial services industry (it was pens before that). You'd walk into a meeting and these wankers would solemnly place their massive shiny baubles on deliberate display. Rolex, Breitling, Portofino, Tag Heurer and God knows what else. These cunts walking around with the the price of a decent car on their wrists (some probably a good house). All talking utter shit and taking the piss... My hatred of these types of people knows no bounds. So my minor act of rebellion? The F-91W. It has the required number of functions and no more. It's almost 100% reliable and takes a fair beating before failure. If it fails? I can buy another one without a mortgage. What does it say about my wealth? Nothing and it's not meant to.
    I'd prefer to live or die by my capabilities than how fucking expensive a watch I'm willing to wear. I remember wishing with all my heart that we'd have to go to Brazil or something and watch all these effete morons be relieved of their trinkets. Violently preferably.

    Absolute bellend. I can't believe he thought that was a good idea.
    One of my favourite parts of the world and, as you say, it's relatively unspoilt.
    What flummoxes me is they have the same rules and requests in the Lake District and many of the mountains there are treated like absolute fucking toilets. The last time I was up there for a walk I thought it was an utter disgrace.
    What are the French doing right that we're not?

    Tragic news though one can't help but feel that this could have all been prevented by not assaulting your boyfriend with a lamp.
    As soon as the toilet media (literally) smell blood, you are done.
    Live by the sword etc.

    Sgt Hartman got a reaction from null; in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    Not entirely keen on Liddle myself but if ever there was an example of the BBCs attitude towards leave voters since the referendum, that is definately it.
    I'm amazed they even have the balls to try and pass themselves off as even-handed. Someone should make a compilation of some of the absolute shite they came out with a few weeks after the vote. I remember having my jaw on the floor watching it.
    There are some people who apparently think that the So-Called BBC is too right wing. I actually met one of these in the wild then other day. After I stopped laughing, I asked him to show me on the So-Called BBC news app, something that could be definitively considered 'right wing'. He pointed at something nondescript buried within a torrent of woke articles on gender, race, oppression and sexuality.
    When I pointed out this small discrepancy he said that the 'BBC was designed for people like me' (dafuq!?)
    I abandoned him at the bar at that point.

    Sgt Hartman got a reaction from Ina in British culture; the definitive list   
    Also:
    The deification of dogs.
    The overwhelming urge to climb muddy mountains in the Lakes in the pissing rain to eat a soggy marmite sandwich at the top in a gale. (Guilty)
    A fondness for titillation and scandal.

    Depressingly, most 'good' british traits that I can think of seem to be heading out of the window at a rapid rate. 
    By that I mean things like politeness, manners, humour and civic pride. 
    These traits do still exist but to live by them is treated as more of an eccentricity than an expectation these days. 
    Bitching about the weather will always remain a constant though

    Sgt Hartman reacted to Melchett in Death of a Z lister   
    I’ve mentioned previously that I vaguely know a couple of minor actresses - the type some of you might have heard of but aren’t big names - whose glory days are behind them. One confessed the other week that she had no savings, despite having had a number of roles that must have paid enough to set any of us normal types up for life. And as her chances of paydays that good are now behind her... no more big paydays, no more adulation.... divorced, she has more red flags than a Newquay beach during tonight’s storm, too.
    Celebs are not “properly hinged” IMHO. Best kept at arms length... it’s part and parcel. As Joe said, be grateful for your anonymous life.

    The media are all sending their 'sincere condolences' to her family, however there is nothing at all sincere about anything in the MSM these days.

    If this was a fella who had knocked his girl around, and another former partner had seen fit to fuck off half way round the world to get away from him, the sistahood would now be saying he had it coming.
    Total shitfest.
    Every single throbbing aspect of it.

    That's why hedges are so good but today's home-owner’s and renters are too fucking lazy to trim them.
    A green, living. self regenerating fence that provides a home for little critters, it will never catch on.

    An immensely broad swearing vocabulary.
    Taking the piss out of your close friends to their face.
    Wonky teeth (it's real).
    Finding Nazi uniforms almost unbearably funny as opposed to offensive.

    Sgt Hartman got a reaction from Gordie Lastchance in The normalisation of female obesity   
    This is the thing, I don't care about fat people. If someone wants to gorge themselves to the point of corpulence then so be it. It's their body.
    I will absolutely not have the sort of person like the above trying to sell me bullshit about that state being 'normal' however.
    Body positivity is, on the whole, a good thing. It stops being a good thing when lazy, fat, gelatinous tubs of lard start protesting that we should be more accepting of something that is as clearly as unhealthy as smoking or drinking to great excess. Christ there was some article recently on the Beeb about some group of morbidly obese people going round to schools telling the kids that being grotesquely fat was 'ok'. This was a 'good thing' apparently.
    I doubt the raving alchie taking the stage to laud the positives of 10 special brew and a bottle of paint-stripper vodka a day would be so well received in a most schools. Not sure I see the difference though.
