    Carl Fimble reacted to SNACR in LED bulbs   
    It was a while back but they were pricey top of the range ones they weren't the sort of shit I sell myself.

    The LED bulbs I have give a warm light that I don't think you could dislike...
    Maybe the LEDs you had were old technology and you should try some new ones?

    I've had Morrisons 1521 Lumens (100W equiv) in all fittings around the house for 2 years now - very happy. On offer at the moment, £3.50 each instead of £4

    Carl Fimble reacted to The XYY Man in LED bulbs   
    I got one of those LED lights that mimic 1920s carbon filament lamps fitted in my desk-lamp. Lots of tiny LEDs in a chain.
    They are lovely looking things that give off a dull orange light, nice atmosphere on a night.
    You can get modern copies of real carbon filament lamps in the US, well worth a Google if you like that sort of thing, but not legal to sell in the EU.
    Six quid at Wilkos...

    I wear a Casio F-91W. If it was good enough for Osama bin Laden, it's good enough for me!

    Carl Fimble reacted to ste 🏅 in Are Rolex’s wearable?   
    I couldn't wear something like that through fear of damaging it or being a target. I appreciate a decent bit of kit, but after a point there's not much to be gained - I guess in this case it's the materials it's made from which is a bit different
    Maybe get advice from a dedicated watch forum? A lot of high end ones tend to hold (or even gain their value) so might be worth stashing away if you don't need the cash.

    I also agree that it’s far too much to spend on something like a watch. I wouldn’t spend this money myself.
    But I don’t need the money so don’t see a point in selling it. 
    I wouldn’t say I was ‘given’ it. We have done a lot of business over the years. I was surprised at the gesture though. 
    I’m still a cheap bastard trying to live on <=£20 a day.

    There seems to be on here some sort of in-group preference thing working in reverse. 
    I'm not saying the white guy was acting in a perfect and wise manner, but come on people- it should not have ended as it did, and the black guy is at fault. He carried a knife, then used it in a barbaric way, all over something minor and inconsequential.

    Being a wanker is a useful habit if you have a self-winding watch.

    He wasn’t being attacked or berated. He felt he could dish out verbal and just because someone gave it back he tried the race card and then went all stabby.

    A duck duck go search provides some interesting neighbourly Information.
    I won't quote here as a live case. 
    But yes - he seems like a lovely lad.

    The fact that someone is carrying a knife and is prepared to use it can very likely alter their mindset in a heated argument.  They know that the chances of them losing if it escalates is very low so there's little or no reason to back down or compromise.

    I believe they were Pikeys, or there was one recently with Pikeys involved.
    Pikeys are a breed apart.

    What the actual fuck. 
    The "airbrushing" discussed when this even occurred was the complete lack of description of this bloke due to the fact he was not white.
    Unless you have re written history - this is still very much the fact. 
    The actual details of the story are another aspect entirely.

    Fine.
    Its against statutary law.
    Ignorance is no defence.
    Did you do it?
    Did you have intent?
    The rest is for the judge.

    Which is the interpretation you are taking. Not sure your family would have been saying that if the guy at the end of your fist had decided to whack you first with a weapon and inflicted fatal injuries.

    The prosecutor has seen the CCTV footage - as will the jury, are you seriously trying to tell me there is any ambiguity in what happened?

    'As Mr Pomeroy remonstrates with Mr Pencille - remonstrated, not slapped, not punched, because we can see he didn't do any of those things - Mr Pencille, holding that knife in his right hand, swung it and plunged it into the left side of Mr Pomeroy's neck,' the prosecutor said, adding that it cut through both his jugular vein and carotid artery.
    'The eyewitnesses, people on the carriage, saw what they thought were the two men exchanging punches.
    'They didn't see the knife in Mr Pencille's hand, so they were half right.
    He continued: 'What they saw was Lee Pomeroy punching the first defendant, trying to defend himself after he had been stabbed in the neck. 'But Mr Pencille was not punching back, he was stabbing, and he was stabbing Lee Pomeroy again and again and again and again.

    What exactly did white bloke do wrong ? 
    Argued with him ?
    Followed him ? 
    Get stabbed in the neck ?
    That appears to be it. 
    The only thing that's getting weaker is your defending of this scum bag. 
    Yet this hasn't been mentioned yet ?
    It would surprise me very very much. 
    Still wouldn't make much difference either way though.

    It’s not manslaughter, however you look at it!

    Let us not forget that Pencil is involved with drill music. I do hope that once sentencing has taken place and details of his past can be made public we will then have an expose of this vile culture. Newspapers were happy to demonise acid music culture.

    The only clear cut thing we know about the story is that - however aggressive we want to make the white guy out as - he didn't lay a finger on stabby black bloke. 
    And stabby black guy had a knife on him and when he had an argument with a person who was also aggressive - he stabbed him 18 times. First in the neck. 
    I know your not usually the first to play devils advocate with these types of story. But I honestly must be on another planet if I can understand where you and others are coming from here. 
    Jesus Christ. 
    It sounds like stabby yardy let's all act like wee tough gangsta type training FFS.
