  1. If I die of hunger on the train, I'll be holding you personally responsible.
  2. They smell atrocious and the train is rammed. Surely train etiquette comes in to it at some point North of cheese and onion flavoured crisps? The Munch is well over that boundary.
  3. I've got a two hour journey from London ahead of me. I'm tired and all I have left to eat is a sharing pack of Pickled Onion Monster Munch. The train is quite busy. I need help with this important decision. Thing is, they fucking hum. I know I would be incredibly annoyed if the person next to me cracked open a pack of these.

    McMahon Always Wins (Colt Cabana sues CM Punk)

    We've all seen Judge Rinder, that wont hold up in a court of law.
  5. As @PunkStep mentions his undying love of Paul Merson in the football thread, what current or former people do you hate in teams you support and why? As a Bath rugby fan, I've always disliked club legend Jeremy Guscott. Don't particularly like his punditry nowadays and have had friends who work at the club say he's an absolute nightmare to deal with. May be a dollop of recency bias in this, but for Chelsea you don't need to look much further than the recently departed Thibaut Courtois. Even outside of not turning up for training to engineer a transfer, bloke is just a throbber. A constant barrage of whinging and whining, topped off with the fact that he blatantly never gave even the slightest shit about playing for the club. In a sport of mercenaries, he still somehow seems even more mercantile.

    Facebook updates that blow your mind

    I think being murdered is more fun than people talking politics on Facebook. Had a brilliant combination of free Tommy Robinson fuckwits and antisemitism apologists over recent weeks. It's horrific.

    But he says names funny. I'd have preferred it if Sky hired Stanley Unwin.

    I'm genuinely hoping so, Butch. I could see him getting a fair amount of time in the Europa and cup competitions if he sticks around, but wouldn't be shocked if we loan him either. He needs minutes either way. All of these young guys do and I just hope the stars have aligned and we have both a manager and board willing to give a bit of time to young players and a type of football that isn't 100% expediency based. I think we can still finish top 4 while blooding some of these guys.

    I haven't gone into a season as unsure as where we will finish in some time. Could see it being anywhere from 10th to 3rd. We've made some decent signings, but if it is going to be a rebuilding season, it'll be judged by how much use the likes of Loftus-Cheek and CHO, rather than giving players like Pedro and Drinkwater minutes. We go into a season with 4 academy players who legitimately might be there to play, rather than make up numbers. It's exciting, but we have been here before to some extent and done fuck all, albeit with managers arguably less prone to use the YUUF.

    Class snobbery pigeonholing TalkSport listeners like that. I'll have you know it's listened to by a whole range of people, both cab drivers and men driving in vans.

    I'm looking into a new broadband and TV provider...

    From experience, Sky is awful, though I have used then while living in Bumblefuck Wiltshire. I've had better service with BT and Virgin.

    I can believe that he's a nice bloke but Christ, his morning show on TalkSport is tough listening. Definitely a man more suited to telly.

    The Gerry Adams Cookbook

    When famous people have been involved with bizarre projects seemingly unrelated from what they are known for. Inspired by lovable former Sinn Fein leader, Gerry Adams, releasing the cookbook that's sure to be a real stocking filler this Christmas. Good to see Gerry using a pressure cooker for the purpose for which it was created. Any other examples of this sort of weird crossover?

    Bollocks Predictions

    I despise Twitter, I really do. I resent that I have to use that misery pit for my work and look forward to deleting it. Superficial and designed in a way that almost encourages cruelty and stupidity.
