Today I learned...

Recommended Posts

TIL: Frank Lebouef is in "The Theory of Everything" (as an actor, not playing himself).  Blew my mind.

Good for you. After 6 years of not drinking, that doesn't bother me anymore. It's the fact that everyone is SUCH an insufferable cunt when they're drunk and you're sober. It makes me depressed to think of what I must've been like.

 

Anyway good work. Interesting about the money thing. I think in Indian culture you're suppo to give quite random amounts for Birthdays, Christmas etc. £101 rings a bell

You can give whatever amount you want, but you're generally supposed to give a one pound in there for luck, so 21, 51, 101, whatever..

 

When I first worked for the chinese I would get paid £21 a night for washing dishes, £1 a week for luck?

Yeah, he plays a doctor in it. BBC interviewed him like he had a major part in it.

I was watching it yesterday and had to check on IMDB as I doubted my own eyes.

Today I Learned: the picture on the tin of Lyles' Golden Syrup is a rotting lion surrounded by bees.

I remember when Frank LeBouef showed up right at the end of a season finale episode of Dream Team, and it was implied that he might sign for Harchester United as Dean Sturridge had done before him. It might even have been after the credits had rolled, like an epilogue to the series.

 

His acting must have improved a shit load since then because he was shite.

Pretty sure Frank LeBouef is also some sort of spy in a film called Allies (which also has Matt Willis of Busted and Adrian from Corrie in it!)

Well done on the sobriety Riot, pleased for you mate. You'll be amazed at how quickly your life improves.

 

I've started running a restaurant and fell off the wagon over the weekend. Did 80+ hours last week there and stayed up all night Saturday drinking with a girl. She's ace. Gonna try and stay sober again now. I don't want to fall back into that trap.

So, had you never looked at Lyles tins in the shop, or just never seen it that way before.

 

If its the latter what did you think it was before?

 

If it was the first please tell me you used to run past the golden syrup in sainsburys screaming with you hands over your eyes.

I just assumed it was a lion. Never really paid close attention to it before. Maybe that's because I'm BLIND through diabetes from eating so much syrup?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

* I am not actually blind. Or have diabetes. Or enjoy syrup.

Diminishings this thread if there are know heads ready to pounce with, "Lol, you didn't know that?!" responses.

 

I didn't know it was a dead lion surrounded by bees myself until a couple of years ago. I knew it was a lion, but didn't really study the can to go, "Hey, those dots. OMG, they're flies or something!"

Does camp coffee still have the mental label on the front? IIRC, it's a British bloke giving a native a bottle of camp coffee, and on the bottle is a British bloke giving a native a bottle of camp coffee, and on that bottle is ...

TIL*: the guy who plays the Dean in Community co-wrote the film version of The Descendants.

 

*less 'today I learned' and more 'today I read on Cracked', but it still counts.

Ohh fuck off, I was genuinely curious to know if he'd just seen it as something else, and if so what, and was making light hearted conversation with the man.

 

Things like that came up in another thread the other week.
