    I find that the people who tend to be the most anti-TR tend to know the square root of fuck all about him

    You're trolling again. Regardless of your opinion of the man, do you agree that the charges against him are ridiculous?
    There are plenty of people I disagree with, but I would not be happy if they were locked up for no reason.

    man o' the year reacted to One percent in When I get old, I shall wear purple   
    I’m going to post this again as I think it wonderful 
    When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick flowers in other people's gardens
    And learn to spit.

    You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
    And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
    Or only bread and pickle for a week
    And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

    But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
    And pay our rent and not swear in the street
    And set a good example for the children.
    We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

    One vote from me.  A year or two ago I wouldn't have even contemplated it.

    man o' the year reacted to Great Guy in What do you collect?   
    I collect coins. I like buying old coins as its like touching a piece of history. I also like buying coins from countries that I've visited. I have to admit though, I sometimes wonder why I shell out fairly large sums of money for something I lock in a safe and hardly look at... I suspect  collecting is probably linked to hoarding/ OCD.
    The coins below are a Noble (about 1350), a stater from the tribe of Queen Boudicca, a Romanian coin and a £1 coin for scale.

    man o' the year reacted to Craig in Fake Lager   
    The main culprit for bland beer is high gravity brewing. By brewing your lager to around 6-7%, then diluting it down, you're creating massive economies of scale which allow the brewer to knock the stuff out far cheaper. But clearly, you're not just diluting the abv, you're diluting down all the other congeners which give flavour, mouthfeel, head retention etc.

    We regularly have messages on our guest house association messages from people who have booked accommodation in Bath and have forgottten  where they have booked asking if anyone has such and such booked in for specific dates. As I say this is a requent occurence rather than a rare event.

    man o' the year reacted to Kwyjibo in A new record!   
    I got epically spannered one night in Bristol on a work trip in the 90's, and me and my colleague could not for the life of us remember where our hotel was. In a moment of inspiration I realised I had the hotels number so I found a phone box and rang them to order me a taxi. They helpfully pointed out that as they did not know where I was it would be better if I got a taxi myself 😄

    man o' the year got a reaction from Frank Hovis in A new record!   
    We have had people take extraordinary times to reach our hotel before but tonight is I think  new record. It has taken a couple two and a half hours to reach us from the centre of Bath which is only 6 miles away. They were travelling all the time they said. Goodness knows where they have been to but chose to ignore the request to ring me for help with directions if you need it. 
    The last contender took I think 2 hours and needed constant directions. Literally being talked in.They left 2 nights early after one night here as they were too afraid of getting lost again.We hadn't the heart to charge them.
    Such is the intellect of some people today.

    That is bloody brilliant. Sacked for security in relation to a phone company and there he is making a speech in the commons with a phone listening to him.
