  1. Occasionally a US firm will unwittingly introduce something into the UK market which is a touch problematic:
  2. The Wellness Policy is probably why he was undergoing testosterone-replacement therapy, I suppose. He'd have been fine whilst he was taking roids as always but once that stopped being an option, he would've shrunk. He was on testosterone-replacement therapy because he was unable to produce his own testosterone but I suppose he didn't just smoothly transition to the loophole so there would've been a period where he wasn't getting any extra testosterone and wasn't producing much of his own.
  3. If I remember correctly, he passed the tests because he was on testosterone-replacement therapy under a doctor's supervision, having destroyed his body's own capacity to produce the hormone because of the amount he'd abused over the years.
  4. I loved Canada's Greatest Athlete, "Iron" Mike Sharpe. Unlike the other jobbers, he was a huge man. But what really drew me to him is that he made noise constantly. He was so loud, even walking. Plus he had his gimmick, the loaded wristband: Reading in one of Foley's books that he was a neat freak and that the boys would prank him by putting a crease in his trousers, obliging him to get his iron out, made me love him even more. If he were alive today, he wouldn't have been caught out with the panic buying: after he'd died, Velvet McIntyre told a story about being upset about not being able to find toilet paper. No problem: Iron Mike opened his suitcase and shared one of the six rolls he carried with him with her.

    Covid-19 Megathread

    My InfoWars-influenced best friend did too, judging by his FB status: I wonder if anyone else finds it interesting that the text message the government is sending everyone has "Save the NHS" then "Save lives"? Kind of makes me question the government's priorities. Somebody points out his misquote ("protect the NHS"), and then he gets a commonsense explanation or two: Stay at home -> protect the NHS -> save lives. It seems like a logical sequence of events to me. Nope: I'm really mad at him for having allowed himself to digest so much of that InfoWars bullshit that he's gone down this rabbit hole. I don't think there's any way back once you've ignored the lies about Sandy Hook. I suppose we should've spotted it back when he was telling us about how Lesnar can't wrestle, that he's only got one move.
  6. I'm really glad that he had such a long life, and that it wasn't this villain which got him: Asterix (who is 60 himself!) is one of my quirky little hobbies. I think I might try to reduce the unread pile by one this evening in memory of him. Edit: Didn't he have the weirdest pen-holding style?!
  7. I've thought that this person is a prize prat every time I've had the misfortune to meet him. Of all the subjects to get like this about. What a codiv.
  8. A notification saying "X linked to a post in a thread you started" or something like that.
  9. Who do you imagine is carrying around those statistics in his pocket? And where do you think he would've got them from?

    Covid-19 Megathread

    Good grief. There are people who are now out of work and homeless as a result of COVID-19 and, more directly, an employer closing the doors. Kicked out of their work-provided accommodation with immediate effect: I know you can't expect an employer who is closing down immediately to require the services of the staff who run it when it's operational, but seeing it so heartlessly written considering the repercussions for the poor staff members beyond losing their income is very jarring. Terrible.
  11. As a jaded wrestling fan, it's been years since I've marked out, but seeing my home settlement mentioned here has just done it! You can hear that motorway from my parents'. (Well, I can't because I don't know any differently, but my better half reports that it's deafening.) Edit: That reads as though I'm the stereotypical fat 40-something wrestling fan who lives with his parents and has invented a girlfriend, doesn't it?

    To give the landlords a break ... look what someone kindly popped through the letterbox yesterday evening. I've never had one before. What coincidentally great timing, with people at risk of losing their income. They've made sure to give an example so that they're in legal compliance. If you borrow £200, you'll have paid back £340 ten weeks later. That's easier to parse than trying to make sense of the API, if a figure of 466% isn't enough to terrify you just at the sight of it. You might even decide that needs must and you'll take a loan out of those terms. £200 won't last long, though, so it's fortunate that you can easily jump to £1500 once you're an existing customer. I suppose you could charitably argue that these people are providing a service, filling a gap in the market etc, and it's true that they've provided the numbers and an illustrative example. But the timing doesn't half look to me like opportunistic parasitism and a fast track to destitution.

    I was going to 'not all landlords' but then I saw this and he ruined it for the rest, the twat:

    WWE HOF 2020

    The naughty part was supposedly "I'm gonna kill Terry", hence the posters going up afterwards.

    My better half has developed a cold since yesterday and happened to be on a one-off work visit in London yesterday and today. She said it was agony trying to hold in a cough on the Tube for up to an hour at a time to avoid stares. I've since picked her up and she's working at home now coughing to her heart's content. The little pleasures in life.
