  1. In Pacific Rim to protect cities from being destroyed they launch these "Jaeger" robots that just destroy the city.
  2. Yeah he never got banned, was a two week suspension iirc
  3. @wordsfromlee is correct. Bringing it back to Thatcher...anyone been watching The Crown on Netflix? Gillian Anderson is far too sexy to be playing Thatcher.
  4. Shogun looked like the your Dad on his holidays in Tenerife getting in a fight with a German over putting towels out early after a few too many bevvies next to the pool.
  5. 2 minutes in to the very first match of the night and I'm already sick of Joe Rogan on commentary. I did not miss him at all during the stretch of fight island events.
  6. I feel like there has been a recent trend of not just missing weight but essentially going "nah I'll fuck it off then" knowing you'll miss it by several lbs. No point exhausting yourself desperately trying to lose that weight when its not a title match. You know the opponent is basically forced into accepting because they want their show money and Dana won't be happy if they call the fight off. The fight goes on, sure you're going to lose some money but if you win then its not like you're further penalised, the fight is treated as if nothing wrong happened with it. But now you've probably got
  7. That is amazing. Drunken Bakers is a strip that I always feel uneasy about after reading and chuckling at.

    Chippy Tea

    Speaking of the US, not my photo, but this is probably the best fish and chips I've ever had in the country. At a pretty good irish pub in town: Definitely on the poncy side, inferior to most chippies, but superior to most versions which are more like fishfingers on top of McDonalds french fries.
  9. Not quite, the wedding was about 50 people, then half of them got it and spread it when they returned home leading to the 170+ cases. Some of the 328 million of them are yes.

    I have had "fish & chips" in the US where it did come with crisps. So it can happen.
  11. I think it's all to enforce the narrative of a stolen election in the idiots that voted for him. The cognitive dissonance is just off the charts - these people are believing the presidential election was stolen but agree with the senate/house results...same fucking ballot. When I see stories like https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/09/us/politics/trump-pac.html about him starting a PAC to bring money in (keep some for himself obv) and influence the party going forward it informs me he knows he lost.
  12. No-one wants this to turn into a religion thread. Thanks.
  13. You have to love Glover Teixeira - what a beast, takes a devastating punch and immediately comes up on a leg and takes it to the ground. Barcelos/Taha was an amazing fight. Arlovski fight was dull as shit. Dominick Cruz was shit talking it as usual which would normally annoy me but he was right to be fair. As much as I adore my tomboy, awful boob job, crush Claudia, her fights aren't that interesting these days. I felt she got lucky with the decision against Hill so seemed like judge karma to me. First time I've seen Alexandr Romanov fight, and I thought to myself "he looks like
  14. Voter fraud is such sour grapes - I remember seeing pockets of it in 2016 too. It is just absurd when you start to really think about it, you see people bring up things like seeing someone registered to vote who is dead and trying to bring up voter tracking sites to see if they used a mail in vote. So let's say that is true, you'd still need to prove that it went for one side versus the other, and it is a massive leap to claim that only one side did it. Ok, lets say that the only fraud comes from one side, then you're still talking about a small number of votes compared to the entire count of
  15. Biden's acceptance speech was extremely refreshing to hear, such a difference from the "all about me" or divisive rhetoric of Trump. Was also nice to see Biden smiling and looking excited by the whole thing, rather than a portly fuck making facial expressions like he's not sure if it was a fart or a shit.
  16. Its almost as if having two parties to represent an extremely large and varied country doesn't work... One thing the Republicans have done well is to hold their noses, or be snide enough, as the core of that party changes to go along with it - just take a look at the last 4 years, you really saw very little shit talking of Trump from the GOP once he got the nomination, but leading up to it the tone was very different as at that point he was the outsider. Compare that to the dems who seem to want to all agree on what it means to be a democrat but really have quite different ideas, compare
  17. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violent_Crime_Control_and_Law_Enforcement_Act
  18. The whole thing is like a football club, right down to "life-long" fans going on about "the refs were against us"
  19. Yes...not that I ever mention it tbh
  20. People cheering and yelling "fuck yeah", cars tooting, around me

    I haven't, but that does look interesting. I'm one of those cunts who has always found the xbox controller to be unbelievably uncomfortable though.

    I'm interested in one. I don't own any modern console, just got a PS3 getting dusty. I'm only really interested in the likes of GTA and RDR to be honest.
