While I'm here, I will take issue with anyone suggesting a combination of mash and baked beans. That's just f*cking vile, and should be something you gave up when you stopped using nappies.

Bangers and mash with baked beans is perfectly OK.. Ideal dinner for when you are getting a little tired of a pot noodle.

Interesting.. I say no because it clashes with the colour, fragrance, texture and subtle acidic tone of the vegetarian jus coated beans.

Baked beand and gravy is ace. Next you will all be saying you don't put gravy on your cheesy chips.

Mash and baked beans is fine.

Baked beans anywhere near a fried egg is a capital offence.

Adverts on 4OD. Forced to watch with no wind on or skip facility. It’s Russian roulette as sometimes you get 1:30...1:50...the other day I got a 2:30! ARGGGHHH! I refuse to watch them so I take the headphones out and avert my eyes.

Hedgehog 15-05-2020 03:45 PM

Couple of things annoyed me today, all before 7:30am...

A quick look at Facebook got me off on the wrong foot.

One friend who lives in Tennessee proudly blabbing that they got in their car yesterday and drove 10 hours to their Florida condo. Now I'm not sure what the current advice is in both these states (or the one or two they had to pass through), but still pissed me off regardless.

Another friend has linked to a GoFundMe page for a local wine bar owner, for no reason other than he has not been open since March. I've know the guy for nearly 30 years, and I'm not particularly worried about his financial health. What I am worried about are the small struggling restaurants, and the girls (and men) where I get my hair cut who were living day to day before all this. If I was to contribute to any GoFundMe cause it would be for the girl who cuts my hair.

Off to the market now... that should provide me with some more annoyances!

Ah... We had 3 goldfish in a pond in our back garden when I was a kid, and they got to be pretty big, and in the region of 12 years old. Even survived a flood where they ended up in the next door neighbours garden.

Then some frigging cat came along and two of the 3 disappeared. The 3rd one was pretty scratched up and died a short while after. Wasn't even our cat.

We have a couple of egrets that hang around our neighbourhood... not sure there are too many fish for them. Maybe they eat frogs and lizards as we have plenty of them around here.

Read today that three Universities, one in England, one in Australia and another in the States are going to conduct research to find out if footballers are taller now than they were when the game was invented. Of course they fxckin are!!! You've only got to open your eyes. These spotty faced little bastards will probably be given hundreds of thousands in grants to come to that conclusion. They'll turn it into an archaeological dig, piss most of the doe away in the Student lounge and do a bit of googling when it suits them. Go to a match and you'll see players are taller than they were twenty years ago, never mind 140 years in the past. When the Scottish Wembley Wizards of 1928 hammered England, none of their five man forward line was over 5ft 4in. When I first started watching football, a lot of the players I thought were tall, were in fact 5ft 10 or 11. Big Joe Corrigan was considered a freak at 6ft 4. He'd now be dwarfed by the likes of Hennessy or the 6ft 9 bloke at Ipswich.
The yanks are involved in this. The whole agenda is aimed towards some day making the goals bigger. This will suit the Americans, who have been trying for decades to mess with the rules of the sport. They won't be happy until most matches end up 9-8. I could guarantee that the likes of Percy Dalton, Dorking and Cp Satellite would do a better job researching this than these clowns. Some of the research they have done on the 1861 thread has been incredible.

Hedgehog 15-05-2020 09:01 PM

Agree with you John. Being 6' 2" I used to feel a freak at times, but nowadays I feel pretty average. Mind you I think Americans are generally taller than Brits, but that may just be circumstantial.

Seems like reading between the lines there are quite a few tall members on this here BBS...

Think you're right. Years back my mate and his girl friend had a child over here. He was far from broke but decided to be clever and got her to say that he had upped and left her.This meant the child was entitled to free milk. I'm a firm believer in you get nothing free, there's always a catch.Huge cartons of milk kept arriving and the child was guzzling it down. The local saloons conspiracy expert kept warning my mate that they use milk to experiment and that it will lead to giantism. Neither my friend or his girl friend were tall, but now thirty years later their son stands 6ft 10inches.

big bad John 15-05-2020 10:26 PM

Back to things that annoy you and sticking to the subject of height. Annoying little nutritiously challenged squirts, who never ate their greens or drank their tainted milk when they were told, who ask you,"what's the weather like up there?Or are you a basketball player?" You'd be surprized how many get offended when you respond by asking them if they are a jockey or give a little spit and tell them it's raining. Got to be careful with the last one now.Due to this pandemic thingy you could be looking at an attempted manslaughter charge.;)
As for the little hardmen who tell you, "you think you're tough because your big" that doesn't seem to be that common anymore.Was more of an England thing than an American.

Well, yes. But the media framed the narrative and kinda tied the hands of everybody. So certainly in public service we are using ‘the’ to communicate with people but always adding (COVID-19) in parenthesis so we can start to using that exclusively over the coming months.

Dropping the “the” from sentences. As in when referring to the Notting Hill Carnival, people saying “are you enjoying Carnival”? When I hear this I can’t help but repeat it in my head, but in a Northern accent. As in I’m going to t’pub.
Similarly, News readers dropping the “the” when referring to Party Conferences.

Similarly, News readers dropping the “the” when referring to Party Conferences.

There’s no ‘to’ in ‘going t’pub’. It’s not ‘I’m going to t’pub’. It’s ‘I’m going t’pub’

Unfortunately an underused statement presently

If you were proper northern you’d know there’s no t’ either, just a pause where it would be

Proper northern is “ I’m going <pause for silent t’> pub”

If you’re even more northern then proper northern, then there would be no need for the “I’m” bit either.

The going is a bit superfluous also.

In fact, just a grunt will suffice.

Can we add dropping the word 'to' as well please? As in 'Are you going Palace on Saturday?' What's that all about?

What's he doing giving an exclusive interview with the Mail, he also gave one to the Sun last week. He's the nation's PM. Surely if he has got something important enough to say it should be given the widest possible audience ie distributed to all media outlets at the same time.

You are almost right, but it's more properly referred to as Shrovetide in non-heathen lands.

I'm a bit confused now as to who says what, but used to get pulled up by one or the other when I first came here about the use of "The".

As in:

"I'm going into hospital"

or

"I'm going into the hospital"

One of them is very British, but I don't recall which one is.

There is also:

"I saw Concorde fly over today"

or

"I saw The Concorde fly over today"

This one confused me, as there was more than one Concorde, so it should have been "a Concorde"... Again I think it's a British thing.

self-made videos broadcast on youtube or TV channels.
You are not important. You ascribe yourself traits on the TV that are annoying, and you are devoid of any qualifications. Pull that trigger

That pause seems to be actually a glottal stop, but how they manage to precede a consonant with a glottal stop is another question. As a Londoner I'm only capable of putting glottal stops between vowels.

Now it's perfectly possible of course for a language to dispense with definite articles, and indeed all articles, entirely. Slavonic languages in general don't have them. Latin didn't either. Scandinavian languages postfix them to nouns, unless the noun is qualified with an article.

As a Londoner, I put f*cking as a glottal stop between anything.

For example, what the f*cking hell is a glottal stop?

Son: Dad, can I go Croydon?

Me: Can I go to Croydon.

Son: Can I go TO Croydon?

Me: No.
