  • I developed this a couple of years ago for six months or so…I’m blaming boots which were unsupportive and standing around for hours on hard concrete flooring. I took painkillers and bought new boots and it eventually went away…

  • No, bots or anything like that. The way tumblr works is that its based upon their system so no php and limited javascript. There are no forms or anything like that on the site so I dont know where it is getting “trick you into submitting your financial or personal information to online scammers.” from. I’m sure I would get banned by Microsoft if…[Read more]

  • Recently McAfee site advisor was auto installed on my computer. This has caused popups and other annoying alerts to appear when browsing the internet. Anyway when visiting a blog that I run I was alerted by McAfee site advisor: “Whoa! Are you sure you want to go there?” and told me that my site was very risky and even dangerous to visit (it is a…[Read more]

  • from what I remember there was a female cartoon character called Jane Bond a long time ago. No objections to that character at all but you can’t make James Bond anything but what he is or you have made black white, old young and hot cold, stupid clever etc etc. I should qualify that by saying I quite liked Timothy Dalton’s more sensitive…[Read more]

    My problem with blaming the Russians is I fail to see any motive ?

  • Too many unknowns here to offer help.

    Do you live independently of your parents?

    Are you unemployed?

    Seeing as you are “jamesg85” that, by my reckoning, makes your 33yrs old, why are your parents still subbing you?

    Do you have a disability?

    Are you seeking professional help for your drinking?

  • Just ring the customer services lines of Royal London, Prudential, Aviva and Legal & General one after the other with your NI no. to hand. During office hours the wait is less than 10 minutes each. Ask them to trace any pensions under your name/no. These four pretty much own the whole UK pension industry and the handlers are really helpful. I…[Read more]

  • The question was easy to understand but totally flawed because there was no official position on what leaving the EU would mean.

    It is like a bunch of drunk people who have just come out the pub voting to get a taxi without first deciding where they want to go. A year later there is no agreement about what to tell the driver or willingness to get…[Read more]

  • It’s also meant, according to the news, that the UKs economic growth has been behind the Eurozone’s in 5 of the past 7 qurters since the vote.

    That’ll show them…

  • How long can the Conservative Party prop Theresa May up before the next General Election?

    Far too long.

    If Corbyn was moderate, competent and willing to fight Brexit this government would be history. But he’s not.

  • Aly replied to the topic "my parking space" in the forum General Chat 2 years, 9 months ago

    Not parking, but traffic blocking driveway.

    I arrived home earlier today to find traffic backed up from the junction 200yds away and blocking my driveway, not uncommon. One lady reversed a little, but I still couldn’t get on my drive. The person in front of her could’ve moved forward slightly as there was a small gap between her and the car in…[Read more]

  • @div Yes, so I might as well just go and buy yet another Ryanair flight to go bolt clipping without a second thought because I’m going to be dead when the global warming shit really hits the fan, or, if that is averted, when the next Einstein unifies quantum mechanics with gravity.

    Actually, I suspect what will happen is that in about a hundred…[Read more]

  • @div I disagree. The human brain is the is the most complex and extraordinary thing that has ever evolved on earth and, for all we know, in the whole universe – a conscious organ capable of a deep understanding of the universe in which it has evolved. It makes us the only animal capable of seeing into the future and moulding it, possibly for the…[Read more]

  • I’m not religious so waiting makes no difference to me. Why shouldn’t someone for whom does matter take priority?

  • So if the ‘rule’ as to who gets the seats on a bus or train first come first served is it then ‘disgusting’ and ‘not equality’ for an able person to give up their seat for someone who is elderly, disabled or pregnant?

    Don’t different groups have different needs?

    Is your problem with this that certain groups that you dislike have their needs…[Read more]

  • I have now watched that video and I’d like to claim that I’d have missed that pedestrian. 100% sure. Any human who couldn’t have avoided that accident shouldn’t be behind the wheel in my opinion.

    @burp Having watched that video I’m not so sure it would be that easy. I know the video quality isn’t great and one may have picked the pedestrian up…[Read more]
