    Hail the Tripod reacted to Bus Stop Boxer in Walthamstow burning   
    "Posh" side at Walthamstow was Vinny Jones, Beckham (who used to collect glasses there as a boy), Brad Pitt, (probably only once)Guy Ritchie. Also Blur when they were being cockneez.
    The catering that side was well regarded in its own right.
    Other side was my lot with a bag of chips and a pint, going nuts if a trifecta, or reverse forecast, came in and it won you £30.
    Stopped going in about 2004/5.

    Hail the Tripod reacted to The XYY Man in Off the wall conversations with the missus   
    We got stuck behind a funeral cortege this morning, and Mrs XYY says "Oooooh, I wonder who's dead"..?
    "I could be wrong pet," I answered. "But I reckon it's the cunt in the box"...

    The woman’s chair looks really good. Perfect for attractive women in above knee length skirts.

    They're not even pretending to have any respect for the rule of law anymore. Third world society.

    so your going to die of aspartame poisoning after being thrown off your shattering carbon bike probably onto a faulty airbag from a passing honda/toyota.

    Hail the Tripod reacted to Dave Bloke in Off the wall conversations with the missus   
    I  vaguely mentioned Saddam Hussein to the missus
    Missus "how is he these days, still got issues with the Iranians?"
    Me "who? Saddam Hussein?"
    Missus "yes him, the guy with the beard, he's not had a book out for ages, frightful bore really"
    Me "I didn't know he wrote"
    Missus "oh yes, dreadful kerfuffle with the Mullahs, they wanted to kill him"
    Me "I know he invaded Iran"
    Missus "did he? Well that's taking things a bit far, he had protection from the British police you know"
    Me "what? but we invaded Iraq and killed him"
    Missus "no no, he was interviewed in Elle magazine the other day with Bernard Kouchner"
    Me "I can't imagine that Bernard Kouchner would be friends with Saddam Hussein, are you sure that wasn't one of those old copes of Elle you've got stacked in the loo"
    Missus "no no, last weeks look here"
    Me "That's Salman Rushdie, the author"
    Missus "yes that's it Saddam Rushdie, wrote Sadistic Verses"

    I thought you had no teeth or are those the new false ones. 
    Bugger, I can’t think of many things worse than false teeth. 
    i guess it might come in handy as you could take them out for certain things. 
     
    oh, wait, you are not gay are you.

    I don't believe a word of this. Don't understand why they even bothered concocting it unless somehow they felt they had to draw a line under speculation of Whodunnit.

    How many people have actually seen A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon? Is there a rational explanation for why they were filming the Earth through the window like that?

    Hail the Tripod reacted to BLOOLOO in Aspartame, the next big scandal?   
    I was watching a few videos featuring a conference "Keto down under" on You tube
    In one of them, a Doctor whose speciality was MS, quoted that in recent years, 70% of referals to his clinic were not in fact due to MS, but Aspartame poisoning.
    me:diagnosed with severe "big league" diabetese type 2 with Keto acidosis In April. immediate max doses of alaglyptin and Metformin.
    7 days later a negligable drop in blood sugar, then at 20, a drop from a week before of 33+ (the max the meter wouuld show)
    Changed to Keto diet, ie eliminated ALL carbs to get under 10gs per day. Bread, rice, taties, pasta, everything.
    today, 3 months later, had the h1b test (3 months average blood) and i am registering NORMAL.  I took myself off all the meds when my Blood sugar measures were around 6 on average, about a week after avoiding carbs.
    Muscle has already returned to my arms (lost during the Ketoacidosis) and I have lost all my athletes foot, my liver spots are gone and I havent been ill at all with anything.
    Probably die next week.

    Hail the Tripod got a reaction from Bricks & Mortar in Does anybody care about women's football   
    I'm happy that they are showing women's international football on the So-Called BBC. It's not like there's much quality in the rest of their programming line up, and I'd like to see women's football take off. There are plenty of girls playing in the junior youth teams, and there is even a functioning league for female teenagers in Surrey (and I assume elsewhere). I rather suspect the people running it will ruin it through ludicrous pay demands, and other politically motivated cuntishness, before any self funding professional women's league can get established.

    The people of the Scottish islands were extremely busy building “broch” forts to protect themselves, presumably from slavers, in this time period.

    If the shop is still as busy as ever, it’s probably closing because the burden of rent/rates has become insurmountable with their pricing structure. Same reason McDonalds “flagship” London stores are wildly unprofitable.

    Many people could have been put at risk because of this fat tongued idiot and his stupid campaigns.
    It is very difficult to buy Pop without artificial sweeteners because of this busybody, not that I drink it very often but it is yet another simple pleasure that has been taken away.
    No more Cream Soda floats for me thanks to this Cunt.

    Keep proof she was alive and in good health when you left her. 
     
    Alison Stokke was/is physically magnificent, a pleasant but slightly feeble-minded bint IMO. 
    If she’d had self-confidence and embraced what she was when she first arrived on the scene and that photo of her went viral - a not quite good enough top athlete who looks like a model, she’d be a big star married to a billionaire by now. Not everyone can be a champion, but you can make the most of what you have.

    Hail the Tripod reacted to unregistered_guest in password123   
    Which is precisely the point we need to make to the "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear" brigade.
    If the people entrusted with sensitive personal data are incompetent fuckwits, you have everything to fear from someone maliciously tampering with it, just because they can!

    Hail the Tripod reacted to unregistered_guest in The Guardian to be sued (at last)   
    No punishment.
    The Grauniad have realised they were on a hiding to nothing here and have backed down, surrendered - paid a 5-figure sum to charity and issued a grovelling apology. Because that's far cheaper than letting this go to court, losing massively and picking up the plaintiff's costs into the bargain.
    Which is what they should have done in the first place instead of trying to weasel their way out of it.
    No, strike that! They shouldn't have let such an obvious smear go to press in the first place! Someone, somewhere should have had the guts or integrity to say to the idiot who penned the libel in the first place, "You know, an untruth like this, implying that a journalist is a whore just because they got a controversial story that embarrasses some of the establishment figures you suck up to, is a really, really, potentially career-ending bad move!"
    But they didn't.
