Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

I kind of want to create an Instagram account and upload every photo I take on my phone (about once a month) with zero curation, as a concerning glimpse into reality that influencers don't offer. The last year of sparse, confusing subject matter includes an all-day breakfast microwave meal (don't as...

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

I'm thinking of getting a pair of the Sonys for office use. This may be a stupid question given that they're noise cancelling, but is there any sound leakage? My current office earphones sound great, but if I turn them up more than about a third then everyone else has to listen to whatever rubbish I...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

First World problems, eh? Oh man. As the kids say, triggered . :lol: Nothing personal, but that phrase is one of the most hateful, patronising, dismissive sayings of the modern age. I get that it's meant to put things in perspective, but what it actually comes across as is "there are worse problems...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

Cereal packaging. It's fucking useless. The flap bit at the top of the box that's meant to keep it closed? Useless. The flimsy cardboard on supermarket brands which means the box will never stay upright once opened? Useless. The way the final bowl is going to be a horrible, claggy mess due to the po...

There was one I knew, one I was fairly sure at, and the rest were wild stabs in the dark.

Can we reserve this thread for actual famous people, instead of this Ric dude and Eddie above?
Clearly you’re not getting your mitts on Eddie Money’s other ticket to paradise. :(

Excellent, let's aim for Wednesday then. :)

I can do Wednesday this week ideally, but Tuesday or Thursday should be possible if not.

Electing presidents
Gun control
Sensible use of lawsuits

If it’s true then it’s observation, not bashing. ;)

We see eye to eye on Mogg, which is that with a child named Sixtus he is clearly a Harry Potter villain.

It really is a stance (pun absolutely intended) that can't be argued with.

Re: The Room 102 thread - for things you love or just having a bloody good praise!

Too right. If I had the time to have a full English breakfast every morning, I would. Sausages, bacon, fried eggs, hash brown and beans are mandatory, ideally with some scrambled eggs, black pudding and a small amount of toast. Not mushrooms, though. Mushrooms have no place on any plate of mine. And...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

My parents live in a news bubble of BBC headlines, which in a way is just as bad. All of the hyperbole, none of the substance. Unsurprisingly they think Corbyn is an untrustworthy monster and probably a terrorist-loving communist, but they can't explain why. My dad argued that he leans too much when...
