Finally got around to watching the finale. Some thoughts: Guy Pierce is a hero. He didn't just show up for a cameo, he had a proper little story arc and a pretty emotional one too. For my money this finale would have been much less affecting without him. Put some of the lesser 'big stars' to shame i...

It’s the accent of the “elite.” People aren’t “better” merely by virtue of having an “elite” origin. Boris is a prime example. He’s a very profligate individual. Not classy at all. Exactly. 99% of us aren't elite in Britain so we don't talk like that. As you say, many of the elite aren't classy or ...

I don't think about it. I'm not trying to be clever or make anyone feel inadequate. I don't even notice I'm doing it. Thanks for your thoughts so far. I find this interesting. I've quoted myself because in thinking more about this I've realised this isn't strictly true. I mean the bit about not not...

Hello. I've notice in other threads a couple of people have mentioned that they don't like when some of the people writing here use long, uncommon(?) words that many others might not be familiar with. I know that I am one of those people. Growing up my vocabulary was always some way ahead of my peer...

I've always hated work and the way it infringes on my time. Even though I think, compared to a lot of people, I've been able to hold down fairly privileged jobs that many would barely consider working at all. It's the time and the obligation and people looking over my shoulder that I hate, not the ...

Get a job Get healthier Go to Germany Open up to more people. If I could live my life over, I would go to Berlin in my late teens or 20s and try to stay there. About 15 years ago I was briefly in Germany, Cologne - just for an hour or two as I travelled on to Hungary. But while I was there I felt a...

Python. Or any programming language. I was learning Pascal at college back in the 90s but for some reason took a detour from computing subjects into print media. Mistake.

What would you choose to do for a living if you could do anything?

I like Frasier because they are so pretentious and their father is the complete opposite. But underneath they always mean well. A lot of what Frasier and Niles did was really far fetched. The problem is there really are pretentious people like this (I am related to a fair few). Yes, Frasier's fathe...

So a friend of a friend told me he was searching for torrents online. He told me that obscure items often have only one seed listed, whereas the most popular items might have around 100 seeds. I was thinking that even 100 sounds surprisingly low. If a website lists a torrent as having 100 seeds, wh...

It sucks that you're in this place HoH, I'm very sorry and wish I could help. You should certainly try to engage with your therapist on these issues which are seemingly related. You should not feel ashamed, most people find themselves relying on some sort of crutch to get through the day at some po...

A lot of mine seem to be about recovering things I've lost. -Recover my fitness, be able to run 10+ miles regularly again. -Start writing fiction again, I wrote a novel which trashed my confidence and I need to get it back -Get my garden back from the wild so I can grow vegetables next year -Get ano...

Yeah, that's absolutely not my experience at all. Many towny people do have an idea of rural country life that involves the friendly 'local' but the reality is that village pubs are struggling to survive now and the ones that do well have switched to doing food for tourists. Some actually get annoy...

In the UK don't people choose towns where there's a local cosy little pub so they can meet and become familiar with the locals? Not as far as I know? People just tend to stay where they were born, unless they have to move for work. Ok, I watch too much "Move to the Country" Yeah, that's a...

I looked out of my window and saw a massive cage in my neighbours garden. They have a couple of working dogs that are caged all day and that makes me sad. They have a massive garden the dogs could run around in but they never let them out when they're not working. We've fallen out with them before b...

Lamb is the best meat in my opinion. Mint sauce ruins it.

Can you do a deep squat without falling over?
