    Dave Beans reacted to Reck B in Goosebumps thread   
    I've always loved the song and this performance of it is immense. Garveys vocals are incredible.
    The crescendo at 3.39 gives me ASMR every time;
    Enjoy with headphones.
     
     
     
    Which song gives your hairs a stiffy?

    have a friend who is a gardener, but will turn his hand to building a conservatory, large walls, pond etc he is a phenominally talented, hard and very quick worker.
    One Wealthy pensioner with a country house with garden of a few acres requested a large dry stome wall to be built.
    Mate quoted for the job and quote was agreed,
    So he built the wall.
    When it came to pay the pensioner only paid 60%. He said that as he completed the job in such a short time he didn't think it was worth the quoted amount.
    Now, me, I'd have walked with a two-fingered salute.
    My mate is much more clever. Came back for more work and slowly sold all the specimen plants in the garden.

    3;16 onwards is glorious.
    It kind of reminds me of The Fast Show indie 'dangerous' sketch!
    But I love it. Feel 16 again

    Was recently talking about this with someone who knows the score you might say. Arrest someone in Yeovil - drunk and disorderly for example that just needs to be banged up for the night to sober up and it will take the best part of a shift for them to be ferried over to Bridgwater taking up the time of at least one officer for the best part of a shift, you don't get much policing done when you are effectively just a taxi driver.

    Much the same situation in the SW too.  There are no custody suites between Weymouth, Bridgwater, Keynsham then across to Salisbury.  You get caught for drink driving in the middle of Somerset, and you marginally over, you'll get off due to the time it'll take to process you.  Someone gets nicked for something minor will be let off if something bigger comes in, as there's no enough man power to do both..

    Fuck me. Every year the Macau GP is absolute carnage, make Monaco look like the old Hockenheim. Accident starts at 1.45 mins.

    He's right....There's a lot of CJEU in there...

    Dave Beans got a reaction from Cunning Plan in Knocked up at 48!   
    I've just finished my degree, and I found it a bit of a struggle working 50 hours a week plus 20 hours a week study.  I got sick of it in the end, but I sort of miss it too.  Whether I do my masters next year or not, I'm not so sure..

    Dave Beans reacted to onlyme in Upgrading the sound on my TV - soundbars vs surround sound?   
    I have a couple of Bose Companion Series 3 systems (Sub woofer and tiny satellite speakers). Bought for very little second hand but sound good and well built. One is used for PC/Hifi and the other will later be used for TV sound.

    Dave Beans got a reaction from JoeDavola in Upgrading the sound on my TV - soundbars vs surround sound?   
    Each room is different to one another, so the speakers dont necessarily need to sit either side of the TV.  Some wireless subs can work better by the TV, rather than behind.  Again, it depends on how the room is setup.  You can plug into your Hifi via RCA.
    If you do decide to go for a soundbar, with Samsung, you have soundconnect https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00078316/  If you have a Samsung TV with a Samsung Soundbar, you can connect it all wirelessly, and you can use the same remote for both.
    If you go for a non-Samsung, you can go either purely optical or optical & HDMI.  The cheaper models are usually purely optical, and you'll also use two remotes.  If you go for, say an LG S/B with HDMI, you can connect via HDMI (using the ARC HDMI port on the back of your TV), and you can setup the one remote option by turning on the HDMI CEC option on the TV https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00049106/
