  1. They should have some Police from somewhere like China where they don't take any shit from people, and have the UK Police hold them back as they try and dish out their brand of justice on our young thugs.

     

    Ditto Germany. You either move along when they tell you to, or they kick the shit out of you and then move you along.

     

    Back OT: I actually finally laughed at The Ricky Gervais Show last night. I think he's more of a sitcom comedian, and I only usually watch TRGS because its on right before Bobs Burgers (another underrated show), but last nights was actually funny for once.

  2. I started reading "A Thousand Sons" by Graham McNeill and then once I finished that I was going to buy and read "Prospero Burns" by Dan Abnett, which make up the same story (The Sacking Of Prospero in the Warhammer 40,000) universe) told from the perspective of each side. Then my fiancee went a bought Prospero Burns for me and know I have to resist the urge to stop reading A Thousand Sons........

  3. Won't be as scary as that plane crashing onto Emmerdale Farm. That was the stuff of nightmares years ago.

     

    That was quite tasteless too. It happened right around the time of the Lockerbie anniversary.

     

    Shit, I remember that. Not entirely sure why, probably something to do with being about 6, but it put me right off my spaghetti bolognese. Couldn't eat it for a month. Not the same meal, obviously.

     

    EDIT: On topic: Rita's fucked. She's pushing 80 (on the show), and she's in the shop when the tram goes tits up (apparently). Book her a cab to the morgue.

  4. Ehh.....probably the time I went on a blind date set up by a "mate" of mine. Got on like a house on fire, she ticked all the right boxes for me: she was clever, funny, loved classical music, the works. I walk her home, and she's about to invite me in when I I hear over my shoulder "Oi, what you doing with my sister? Thought you were queer?"

     

    It was the guy that'd bullied me all the way through school. I promptly made my excuses and left.

  5. Agreed on the awesomeness of Preacher. The gradual reveal of Cassidy's backstory is a thing of absolute beauty.

     

    I followed it in the original issues, and the last issue came out a month late. After THAT cliffhanger. The fuckers.

     

    Agreed. I read the story arc set during the Uprising (before Cass was "made"), and I had to stop and think to myself "Oh yeah, he was a human once, wasn't he?" :laugh:

     

    It's even funnier if you studied that period of Irish history. His brother kicking Michael Collins in the balls is hysterical.

     

    Its even funnier if you consider loads of people deserted when the shelling started!

  7. Evening folks, looking for help on this one.

     

    Trying to track down the RAW or PPV where this happened.

     

    Basically McMahon comes out before the show, perhaps with stooges beside him, and does a sarcastic promo about asking everyone to check their ticket stubs for the "CARD SUBJECT TO CHANGE" gimmick and then goes to make a line speaking in the 3rd person saying that the promoter "thats me!" refers the right to change the card, blah blah blah. He then finishes off with a "therefore Stonecold Steve Austin will not be appearing tonight, thankyou very much and enjoy the show" to a chorus of boo's, etc.

     

    It has to be Attitude era sometime however i am also thinking it could be the PPV when Austin made a run in at the end to help the Rock in 2000 ?? Or it could have even been a pre-PPV Heat! to further confuse things.

     

    If anyone remembers i would be very grateful.

     

    That, I believe, was No Mercy 1999.

  8. Can we have an official Heroes thread please?

     

    No. But you can start an official Robert Knepper thread where you can talk about how great he was in Heroes, or indeed any other role he's played.

     

    Ehh....he laid it on a bit thick for my liking.

     

    Heroes is a bit cack to be fair. Now, a Quincy or Rockford Files thread I'd be in agreeance with.

     

    Disagree. Quincy was bob.

  9. Deadliest Warrior: They've made some stupid decisions, but its fucking awesome!

    I enjoy watching that too. I laugh out how the yanks take themselves so seriously lol Imagine if there was a British version done by Channel 4 with people from Time Team ;)

     

    I've spent several weeks laughing at The Giant Metal Cock Knife. Not sure of the correct name, but it was a tribal thing, something to do with fertility? Death By Giant Metal Cock Knife is now the funniest means of death in Leicester.

     

    EDIT: I've also been enjoying The Life And Times Of Tim. Its definitely for the lolz!!!!111!!

  10. 3. People keep coming to me and telling me how awesome Halo: Reach is, despite me telling them "I don't know how awesome it is, I don't have it yet, I can't afford it". Despite me telling 4 different people, all of whom were within earshot of each other, they EACH insisted on telling me "Oh, the jetpacks are awesome!" "Oh, the multiplayer rocks!" "Oh, the plot is so awesome!" "Don't you love Halo: Reach?" I DON'T FUCKING KNOW! I DON'T HAVE IT YET!!!!
