    Carl Fimble got a reaction from JFK in Jordan Peterson   
    Time is ticking though, and we need something a bit stronger than what they offer. I reckon anyway.
    Look a how easily that Dyson guy talked around Peterson during the Munk debate, the fact JP holds back means he is not effective, an actual alt-righter would have mopped the floor with Dyson, or hoovered it anyway...
    Mister Metokur did a bit on Peterson and his money grubbing :

    They are working on  it. EU passed the insidious Article 13 yesterday, with its attempt to ban memes and have a 'link tax' under the guise of copyright. Online companies forced to censor pre-upload (i.e., have vetting software in place).
    Getting control of Internet / suppressing free speech and expression! Glad we are leaving (oh hang on!).

    I don't mind Alan Sugar making a joke so long as he doesn't act all offended if someone makes a joke about Jews.

    Carl Fimble reacted to Sgt Hartman in Bugs, Changes & Glitches - report here!   
    FYI
    Dunno if this is happening to anyone else but loads of posted images have begun to spill over beyond the margins. 
    This means that along with scrolling up and down to read the forum it now goes left and right to the edges of the image.
    I'm browsing on a phone if that makes any difference.

    Well since council tax is meant to pay for the local schools, but I still have to top up the school by another £1,100 per month, you could argue that my council tax is £1,408 per month.

    Never underestimate the nesting instinct of people expecting their first kid. 
    I'm guilty of it too, when our first arrived it entered into a redecorated, newly bedecked room full of new and lovely things that we'd spent a fortune on and we discussed getting a bigger place because 'the baby would need the space'.
    After about a year when all the nice things were covered in a thin layer of poo and vomit and the kid had accorded precisely zero fucks to all of the expensive things we'd organised for him we pretty much acknowledged that we'd fallen hook line and sinker for 'new baby panic'.
    Our second sleeps in a box room in a plain cot with a couple of teddies. She doesn't give a shit.

    Yes, but then you have a gold plated bin lorry come to collect your bins every three days though, and chandeliers on your lamp posts.

    I have actually been overturned in a VW Beetle. It's as if they are made to overturned.
    Perhaps VW should have produced a Click Beetle.

    Wales has roads that have more accidents in Summer than Winter.
    Anybody that's seen the classic footage of Jim Clark sliding his Lotus Cortina around Oulton Park, will note his ability to control  tail sliding through corners, superb skills.
    Sadly many come to Wales in Summer months to demonstrate their complete lack of such ability. Running out of talent heading straight to the scene of the accident.
    The last 2 weeks alone, there have been 8 deaths on local roads, 2 in a Porsche, 6 bikers, along with many injured. I'm not  saying they were at fault. Not for a minute, often accidents are caused by people just not paying attention.
    Another factor, is the popularity of short wheelbase, high centre of gravity, small SUVs, Vauxhall Mokka, Renault Captur, but even small cars, Corsas, Fiestas, now so narrow, so tall, so short.
    Looking back at classic footage again, anybody that has seen tests of London double-decker buses, the extraordinary lean angle before tipping over. Well, a Nissan Quashqai with roof mounted bicycles is the opposite.
    I've seen one over last bank holiday, clip the kerb, flip onto it's roof, spinning to a stop, scattering the contents of it's interior, like a catherine wheel, all across the road. Nobody hurt thankfully, but road closed for hours.
    Yes, it happens a lot.

    Indeed!
    I hate household cleaning and do the bare minimum to keep it reasonably clean and tidy using minimal cleaning products. IME lemon juice and vinegar is fine for cleaning furniture etc. .......no need to attempt to kill 99% of all known germs as advertisers would like folk to believe!
    I’m viligant about food preparation though and wash hands, utensils used and glass board with very hot soapy water.

    I’m a fan of building up natural immunity. Luckily as a kid I was allowed to play in the dirt and eat unwashed veg from the garden even the odd earthworm etc. Also have been lucky to have always eaten mainly home cooked food but admittedly the quality of food has been declining for years.
    Age 60 now. Never had flu, rarely get colds and never had food poisoning or any major illnesses/operations. Haven’t taken prescribed or over the counter medications for many years
    I’ll probably be struck down with a life threatening condition tomorrow for being smug/gloating!

    Probably.
    I don’t know though because I haven’t had a vaccination for around 40 years.
    When my kids, now in mid twenties, we’re babies and young folks I found their vaccination programme disconcerting. From what I hear from young woman I know the vaccination programme has increased a lot.
    Bliar refused to say whether his kids had the triple vaccination or not. Enough for me to think it perhaps wasn’t a good thing to get your kids injected with it!

    £2k?. Nearer £4k or even £6k once they have trapped you in their web.

    Whenever I buy something I always ask myself "I could buy this or retire X days earlier, which is better?". 
    I reckon each £50 I save is one day closer to retirement (ignoring investment returns). Which is better, a new coffee table (£250) to replace my perfectly good coffee table or retire 5 days earlier?

    Its easy to overspend by 50/week. Thats 250/month. 3k/y.
    Few years of tgat and youve got 20k on credit cards, costing 2k/y interest.
    Thats how all the people i kniw whove financially fucked up.

    Carl Fimble reacted to Austin Allegro in XXXTentacion   
    This quote is rather telling: 
    Documentary maker Louis Theroux said: "Notwithstanding personal demons, he was a huge talent & bringing a beautiful new feel to hip hop. So sad."
    I've long suspected that middle class BBC types like rap because it makes them think they are 'edgy' and enables them to live some sort of vicarious 'gangster' life which is far more exciting than their own humdrum existence.

    not heard of him before so did a bit of googling.
    These lyrics are from  "Fuck (V2)" featuring $ki mask and the Slump God from his forgettable 2014 EP "Ice Hotel"
    He also did a 'song' called Willy Wonka was a child murderer which "goes a little somtin' like 'dis, (HIT IT;)
