  1. The change of seasons is a bitch - I definitely have a harder time once the clocks go back keeping motivated and positive.
  2. Disagree strongly. The titles have felt like props for ages. Outside of Lesnar and Rousey is struggle to remember who's held which belt in the last 12 months. The brand split has never worked for me, and the shared PPVs are particularly problematic. Seeing 2 "World Titles" defended on the same show just demeans both. NXT often feels special because it is so separate from the main brands. For my money, with both main brands on separate but important networks, they need to properly cut the ties and have two utterly separate brands that only meet once a year - Wrestlemania.

    Sad Satan

    It's vaporware I think. Never met anyone who actually played it.
  4. Damn! Nog was a really run character with one of the most unusual arcs. I did wonder if he'd appear in Picard.
  5. I'm a lurker on a rather unusual forum I came across years ago that seems to have a lot of aerospace engineers and former pilots on. FWIW they all seem quite puzzled by the footage, but one interesting theory I read was that it's most likely glitches in the imaging software. The computer is creating a lock onto something that's not actually there, or much closer than it appears, and providing false positive velocity data. Or, aliens.
  6. There's probably a LOT of shady shit going on in Siberia. Not heard much about Taiga though. One for @Astro Hollywood here. https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/a29073804/navy-ufo-videos-real/ Those crazy UFO videos that that fella from Blink182 was touting round the internet? Apparently they're legit. In summary "In each case, the objects in the videos undertook aerial maneuvers that aren't possible with current aviation technology. In the 2004 incident, according to The New York Times, the objects "appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up."" So you have US navy pilots with modern surveillance technology (for 2004 at least) utterly baffled by what they're seeing. Apparently this sort of encounter is becoming common enough that the US navy has a whole new system in placy for pilots to report what they are calling Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. The US government is seemingly pretty concerned with all this incursion into its airspace. So what is it? Seems to be objects that come from the ocean and accelerate at near-impossible velocities into space. If they're manmade, they're definitely remotely piloted as no human could survive that. Incredibly advanced drone tech? Some weird energy phenomenon? Aliens? Disinformation campaign? I'd pretty much convinced myself that the whole 90s UFE thing was a long-term disinformation campaign but now...
  7. Last time I saw Walter he was wearing a trenchcoat with Nazi overtones and looked like a badass. Now he's wearing his tracky bums with his mates, they look like a National League coaching squad. Awful look, just awful. Aaliyah, to be fair I think she got her bell rung pretty early in that match, the ref was chatting with her quite a bit and talking to the back, they may have cut the thing short. She's still no good but that might not have been her fault. Apart from that, pretty good opening episode. There's a LOT of depth in this roster in all divisions, and in a typical NXT move they've laid out exciting matches for the next few episodes. One thing I noticed - USA seem to have asked them to turn the light up as the whole show was more brightly lit than it used to be. On the one hand, that allows you to see the wrestlers better BUT it exposes the small venue a bit more. I liked the dim NXT style, it felt old school and raw. Also, you can now more clearly see Everton Fan guy - who had his stinky strip on this week presumably so he could get his character over to a new audience.
  8. When I saw that picture I thought "I don't suppose Kona Reeves will sell a single shirt". And now I want one. Imagine being the one person in the world to wear that shirt.
  9. Been a long time since I watched any Sergio Leone, but personally I think Once Upon A Time in America puts all of those 3 in the shade. Everyone talks about the opening scene at the train station but this one is the one I remember, the Jimmy Stewart reveal: Best thing about this is apparently the played the score out loud whilst filming the scene, so when the heavies are all moving out from behind cover they all do so in time to the music because they could hear it!

    Brexit

    I think you're underestimating how much having money CAN insulate you. If you own your own house, got private medical coverage, no debts, steady income... you can afford to blow a few hundred a week on food, a few quid more isn't going to make a difference. If town centres fall to pieces, just order stuff delivered. If unemployment goes through the roof, so what? Brexit is probably going to have no effect on a majority of people in this country. But for those it DOES effect, it will hit them heavily and in all areas of their life. In that respect, it's just another Conservative style austerity. But this is what we as a country voted for despite all the warnings, so fuck us basically.
  11. I can't believe people keep dragging this thread back up. Let it go. Traffic Wardens should NOT be armed.
  12. This may sound distasteful, but I think having a heart attack whilst swimming in the Med at 78 sounds like a pretty good way to go.
