Re: Aaand, In Other News...

No, open-carry does not mean you can go wherever you please with a rifle. You can't march round a school with a rifle, for instance. It's also not legal to cause intimidation (intentional or otherwise) in the clearly provocative manner he did. It should be obvious that if you go into a supermarket ...

Re: Trump

Might be the first time they're actually onto something.

Except I expect somehow it was aliens. Or the spherical earth overlords.

Re: Aaand, In Other News...

It sends the message that open-carry laws do not mean you can march into a supermarket in body armour with a rifle, which really shouldn’t need to be clarified and yet apparently it does. Um… don't the laws mean that, though? He has a license for open carry, so he was exercising his "right". Stupid...

Re: \m/ Metal \m/

I don't get all the love for Tool. They're often turning up on "things you might like" lists, but I just don't. The above song features that distinctive bass sound/style that's seemingly on every song they do, and the song just drones its way through a bunch of different sections with no crescendo o...

Re: 5G

I'm on 220Mbit with Virgin, and consistently get that or sometimes even more, which is weird.

Are you on Virgin's fibre network, or just standard phone line stuff like BT et al offer?

Re: General Film News

Why does Jay look weird ? Has he had his teeth done or something? Can't put my finger on it, but he looks different somehow. And yeah, this really didn't need making at all. I really enjoyed some of the older films (I thought Dogma was fun!), but they belong to a different time of both my life, and ...

I supppose that is one way to build an audience if the client itself is too shit to compete on an even field
I think people are forgetting how shitty and hated Steam was when it was brand new.

My wife suggested that Vettel has kind-of given up having gotten married between Canada and France.

As someone who uses various transport methods: Cyclists who don't adhere to any fucking road laws: Red lights? Nah. One-way street? Fuck it. Road busy? Let's cycle on the pavement and get huffy when pedestrians don't move out of the way. Drivers who are completely incapable of thinking about anyone ...

So, a dangerous re-joining of the track, then? 😬

Re: The F1 thread

If Vettel had gone round the corner normally, I think the odds of Hamilton getting the overtake at that point are highly dubious. The fact that Hamilton saw an opportunity to overtake suggests to me that Vettel lost time rather than gained time. Right. Vettel lost time, Hamilton had the opportunity...
