I am going to be controversial here I think.
Nope, couldn't agree more. If women choose to wear a hijab, fair play. But nobody should face persucution for what they choose to wear. You'd think that was plain and simple in today's world.

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

For me the problem's not even that it's a convoluted mess, but more that the core conflict is never given any detail, so by the end I still didn't know what the film was about or why anyone was doing anything. I can appreciate a film with an open-ended finale or where something complex is given a vi...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

A few recent watches; Tenet - As someone that really likes time travel / time displacement / time manipulation fiction, this was a dismal disappointment. I had absolutely no interest in the plot because they didn't seem very keen on explaining anything unless I was just being incredibly unobservant...

Re: Google Stadia

It's genuinely a bit frustrating. The service worked. The business model didn't. Google woefully underestimated the amount of investment starting a games company required, despite them having what is essentially an infinite budget (not just for the actual company, but for the research beforehand). ...

Of course, how silly of me! :lol: No doubt they're all singing praises to their liberators and toasting their health.

Re: Ukraine

Supposedly Ukrainian men in the Russian-occupied areas are being told to expect to be drafted, which conventional logic would suggest is a phenomenally dumb thing for Russia to do considering the potential for sabotage and disruption that it would cause. Even if the Ukrainian draftees are given meni...

Re: The Absolute State Of It - It's The UK Politics Thread!

Bear in mind that two of those weeks didn't really count as everything ground to a halt for the Queen. And his master plan now is to keep digging. I've never been in real, desperate poverty, but I did spent about a decade after uni diving in and out of my overdraft (sometimes even hitting the limit)...

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

Mandatory box-ticker training courses, so an employer can claim they've trained their employees on things like diversity, anti-bribery, security, etc. We have a series of these which we have to repeat annually. Today it was workstation safety. I've learned that I should keep good posture while pregn...

Re: The Absolute State Of It - It's The UK Politics Thread!

This strikes me as the sort of trickle-down economics where the rich drink champagne and then piss all over the poor.
