Reading the supporting data I realised that I still, on occasions, drop ‘litter’ despite being rabidly anti littering.

Never again.

You have a business based on killing animals for sport. I think you can let the occasional dropped butt go.

I think you will find that my primary business is based on 100% catch and release, but thanks for making me feel less guilty about my littering. :confused:

What on earth has me dropping the occasion fag butt got to do with killing animals?

Seriously?

PeterH 27-05-2021 04:19 AM

Sorry, torturing.

We can stick with the 'primary' vocbulary, and not look into the associated blood sports.

I just didn't want you to feel too bad as a smoker when there are worse things in the world.

I wonder how much damage is done to the environment by people taking four foreign holidays when allowed during the pandemic period. Or how much plastic in oceans and seas has been replaced by the littering of millions of disposable face masks.

Let alone pumping black crude out of the ground, shipping it all over, and then burning it. Furthermore, we can look at how some compnies, and even nations are using the pandemic to avoid the regulations and international condemnation to increase their negative activities. Japan and their radioactive water, the Amazon rainforest etc..

Us humans in general are scumbags. But the thoughtless smokers are the real villians.

Still, if I can get under your skin a little, it pleases me.

Why do social media companies have Monkey emoji's on their platforms?
This morning we're hearing that Marcus Rashford is getting direct messages from Insta, Twitter etc that are full-on racist etc - which is an utter shit thing to happen.
BUT, why are those pictures included in the software in the first place.

What am I missing?
Does a monkey mean something else in teenage land.
It would be so simple for Facebook etc. to remove these things.

Spending four days over on the Isle of Mull and not spotting a single eagle. Be it golden or White tailed. Oh and the wife not being able to tell what is a buzzard from about the fiftieth effort and despite seeing them every day in Norfolk as well. Bloody clueless she is sat in her passenger seat and resting her backside.

After experiencing their supporters maintaining the support of Man City throughout their slide down the tables, back up and then down again, I find it really hard to begrudge them this success.

Obviously their parents didn't do a good job. Before they get to school and become surrounded by the Arsenals and Chelseas of the world, the lessons of life must begin.
Spelling lessons begin with learning the Wright way to spell Sansom and Pulis. When the little brats have this conquered they can move on to Hinshelwood and learning that Manchester United actually begins with a W.
History lessons will entail learning that "Stonewall Jackson" wasn't some Civil war general with sideburns, but the greatest keeper we ever had (sorry Nige) who also sported a set of fungus chops.
Geography will be taught putting a special emphasis on places like Stockport, Sheffield, Sunderland, Leeds, and explaining that Villa Park is in Birmingham and that Chelsea are just a small team in Fulham. You will also tell them that despite modern teachings, civilization does not cease to exist north of Watford but in fact it ceases just north of Streatham Common.
Religious teachings will consist of stories of the messiah who arrived back in the last century, along with sightings of Lazurus on the wing and the great Cannon himself. Also parents will have to go against modern thinking and explain that God actually appeared for the first time, at Selhurst Park on Nov 4th 1972.
Maths might be quite difficult as you will have to give the youngsters sums that when, divided, multiplied or added up round up to the figure of 51,581. You can allow a little discrepancy in this figure. But the real lesson of life will be to explain how in 7 minutes your life can change forever;And not in a good way.
Finally if all this brain washing doesn't work, just have a word in the childs ear and softly but firmly explain that if they ever support another team you will kick their bloody head in.

Because their fanbase vaporised when they were rubbish - back in the early 1990s we were selling more season tickets than them. Man City were still getting gates of 30k+ in League One IIRC.

When we played Spurs in the fifth round on the way to the cup final and Mullery came on to the touchline at half time the kids saw him for the first time. They didn’t get the significance and just wanted to get another beer in before the second half.

Lombardarian 28-05-2021 10:35 PM

Glory hunting local newspapers - the Sutton Guardian, distinct lack of coverage over last few years for Sutton United (I always grab a weekly free copy at the supermarket). I, in no way claim to be a fan, Im CPFC and go to 1-2 Sutton games a season, but why give us columns of Chelsea news instead?

Not sure it’s annoying, more of a head scratcher really, but people who mention peoples names as if you know who the heck they are talking about…

Example, I was getting my hair cut today and the girl was telling me “Tony had to house sit while she went to work”, and then “Mark filled his pool in”…. I don’t have a clue who Tony or Mark are!

12 Feb 1992 - Chelsea had a crowd of barely 7000 for a 1st Division game v Southampton. No doubt the thrill of having Palace at Stamford Bridge 4 days previously meant anything else was a let down.

For context, Palace have never had a crowd below 9820 (and even that was in the worst season ever recorded in top flight history to that point (1981))

Getting an insurance renewal email and seeing the premium has gone up by 25%. I then find a cheaper provider and call the original one to cancel. They then ask if they can look for a better price for me. Had they done that before emailing me I might not have switched.

An extension of this is people (and my old boss at work was known for this) who use their wife's (or husband's) name when talking about them and not calling them "my wife" (or husband) when addressing a group of people.

Example: "Susan and I went there many years ago".

Harry, with his bloody Sandra and Colin with Sharon are perfect examples. Comes across as very contrived. The time Harry was doing a live after match interview and the missus called him up. Took the call and had a brief conversation which amounted to "yes Sandra, no Sandra." All very endearing to someone innocent who didn't think it was all pre- planned.

They went round Tony's and Mike was there. They all filled Susan in.

Meanwhile did poor Mark ever get his pool filled in?

Apparently so, but who did he bury in it? Was it Tony or Susan... or even this mysterious Mike fellow!

On a weekend break in Carshalton (never been before) and having to order pub drinks using an App. Our local just uses a waiter service.
Get it sorted Londoners!

Spotify "updating" their interface on android. ..and making it ridiculously difficult to navigate.

Ordering via app is covid safe.

I know especially when they hang on about the journey to Marks to see what he has done with his pool.

Because it confirms we’ve got plenty of new young supporters coming through?

Not good enough for some on here. Palace supporters should be third generation at least, and must be born within a mile of seeing the white smoke from the Tasty Jerk.

No, I didn't but the app is not tricky, you need to focus your camera on the QR code, and on top of the screen a link appears, and if you don't see it, you will never order......poor Tim he may have to do special QR codes for the technically challenged patrons :)

I prefer that conversation to that about Susan and her nails and hair any day :)

When something breaks and you try to fix it with super glue, but it doesn't work, just like every other time you've tried.

Just had to do that with my palace mug, so far it’s holding but I expect hot tea all over me at some point:D

Or be given the reality check that, a very short time ago Palace were on the brink of being relegated AND going bust....twice. Surely the histopry of a team is important, it prevents people making the same mistakes.

I think this OAP didnt have a phone advanced enough. Some people at another table bought him a pint.

Assuming this actually happened, the old man could still have had a drink - as 'Spoons say: "our pubs across the UK allow customers to pay and order with a member of staff as well as using the Wetherspoon app".

The only thing super glue sticks is your fingers together.

Maidstoned Eagle 30-05-2021 02:47 PM

People who ask badly worded questions, and then others who get pissy when you answer the question appropriately.

I was sent to me by Biggus, so maybe take your assumptions to his door.

Which is what it was originally intended to do. Though more open wounds than just fingers.
