    Dunno. It was more the way that stylised cartoons are presented alongside the article and captioned like actual photographs that got me.

    So do people committing suicide take care not to step on the live rail until the train has hit them, or not?

    Sadly, I'm having to sell my entire collection of John Lennon memorabilia so I've put it all on eBay.
    Imagine all the PayPal...

    Dumbasses probably assumed they were OK leaving it till after the last advertised train.

    It's almost as if we need these people to keep public sector talking shops in employment.

    He should never have been invited back for England after the last Euros. Much is being made of his Premier League goal record this season but as has been pointed out, back post tap-ins after others' hard work are unlikely to be a feature of this England team. Ironically the one chance of this type he did get last night, he fell over his own feet.
    Don't want to sound like a stuck record but the lack of basic ability of some of the England players is staggering. Much was made of Kane not getting a penalty, but the tap-in that Stones missed in the same play? Jesus. Awful.

    Yeah, don't even get me started on one footed players. It's like a tennis player having to choose between forehand and backhand, but not able to use both. I'm right footed, but can cross or shoot with my left. Sure, it feels "wrong", but then I haven't got all day every day to practise it.....

    Raheem Sterling is one of the sorriest excuses for a footballer I have ever seen in my life.

    Because as a single male you are institutionally discriminated against.  it's not just being a white male, it's being a single male, period.
    I know this personally as donkey's years ago when I split from my ex missus and found myself sofa surfing in a friends place, I was basically fucking homeless, on the bones of my arse whilst my charming ex missus was in the flat (that I had put the majority of money into - the usual story. Societal divorce rape).
    I went to the local housing office to see what my chances were - well you get allocated points don't you.
    If you have dependent kids - bingo you get shit loads of points, if you are homeless and no shelter well you get points (I was sofa surfing so not technically totally 'homeless' ... erm work that one out), if you are 'vulnerable' - so that will be established mental health conditions (being depressed to the point of suicidal like I wasn't enough of course), belong to various vulnerable groups.  
    So I was basically the lowest priority.
    Now if you are female with dependent kids and are especially vulnerable (DV / language problems) , bingo to the top.
    Single male, fuck off.
    This is the system - despite me working and contributing to the system I was told to fuck off basically.
    So cry me a river when I see Grenfall etc. I'm all out of fucks to give. In fact I'm owed fucks.

    I could gladly sleep November-March. My general unproductiveness at those times means that not much difference would be noticed.

    We briefly had round avatars in the very early days, and I was alone I think in actually sourcing a round avatar - an 8 ball. Then the bastards in charge changed them to square. Probably the unholy trinity of Hovis, Fimble and Percent pulling strings behind the scenes again, I daresay.....

    I think that's the one that most bugs me. We are constantly told that we must embrace change, the world moves, you must move with it. But our relationship with the EU is apparently completely set in stone, immutable by any force.
