  1. They could be paid double and the incentive would still be there to do a half arsed job.
  2. What is it about lentil soup which makes it require salt when other soups don't? I use salt a lot in cooking, both as a flavour enhancer and for functional reasons. During the US prohibition of alcohol people often added salt to beer in an attempt to eek out some flavour from the bland homebrew. Today's PTTGOMN is smokers. I'm getting fed up with meeting them for a pint to find them dressed as the Michelin man and insisting on sitting outside in zero degrees so they can smoke while I freeze my arse off.
  3. A Kazakh girl I know living in Finland says it's impossible for her to contact her family as all lines of communication have been shut. This gives me hope that a Kazakh girl I know in Kostanay isn't simply ignoring my belated New Year greetings and may still like me. Anyway, here's a photo of a ship I saw about 200km from Lake Balkhash in landlocked Kazakhstan. f**k knows how and why it got there.
  4. So if the disabled people in question have neither cars nor bikes why would fewer cars and more bikes make the slightest difference to them?
  5. It's possible to separate the art from the artist. Plenty of books, films and music I enjoy have been created in whole or part by scumbags. Even Paul the Apostle was a bit of a dick before turning his life around, yet a book he wrote big chunks of is the most popular of all time. Mark Wahlberg and Dr. Dre can be added to the list of very nasty people the public have forgiven.
  6. Looking forward to A̶k̶m̶o̶l̶y̶, A̶k̶m̶o̶l̶i̶n̶s̶k̶, T̶s̶e̶l̶i̶n̶o̶g̶r̶a̶d̶, A̶k̶m̶o̶l̶a̶, A̶s̶t̶a̶n̶a̶, Nur-Sultan changing its name again.
  7. I often quit books part way through if I think they're shite. The latest victim was Nostromo by Joseph Conrad, 120 pages or so was enough for me. No point wasting time on something you're not enjoying.
  8. There's a decent blog called unnecessary quotes. Used to be good for killing time at work.
  9. Sounds familiar. I'll read a post and get annoyed at an of/off or it's/its then ten minutes later make the same mistake myself by swipe texting and not proofreading before posting.
  10. It's a shame you can't see the referee, but I prefer this shot. Both excellent though.
  11. The woman who invented correction fluid (e.g. Tipp Ex) gave birth to the recently deceased bobble-hatted one from The Monkees. She died shortly after selling her company to Gilette for $58 million, the money went to little Mike, far more than he ever made from being in one of the biggest bands on the planet.
  12. It got wet at the thought of giving your lot another 4-0 pumping. I'm not sure it was a terrible idea agreeing to the groundshare. Without that money we could very well be a bottom half team.
  13. Only surprise there is we still have a steel industry.
  14. Maybe just get her to stay at her mum's for another week and she might settle down.
  15. For f**k's sake. Both things can be enjoyed in moderation by functioning adults.
  16. There are only two double land-locked countries in the world.
  17. Obviously all the Scotland stuff. The Euros were great especially having lived in Italy until a few months prior. I probably knew their squad better than our own. Domestically our title win was absolutely nuts. McCall was getting his jotters at 2-0 down at half time versus East Fife, but from that moment on we were a juggernaut. Scoring less than a goal a game then netting 21 in as many days. Tiffoney scoring more goals in three weeks than his entire career beforehand, Rudden not scoring for a year and a half then averaging two a game. Sealing it with a fixture to spare in a 5-0 win over a hilariously imploding Falkirk side was icing on the cake. I don't think we'll see its like again. Shame it was somewhat tarnished by our board's (and some fans') bleating about how we came to be in League One in the first place, which was strangely by being the worst team in the Championship the year before.
  18. There are quite a few countries which have a decent percentage of the cars on the road left hand drive, as second hand Japanese cars are the best value for money.
  19. Marco scored the goal which got Altay promoted to the Super Lig last season. He's still playing in the top tier at the age of thirty-seven. His brother is currently at Lechia Gdańsk.
  20. Yes, your n=1 study certainly proves the point.
  21. Paying through the nose for expedited delivery for a PCR test (linked to via the government website) only for them to wait six days before handing the package to the couriers. Paid with debit card so no chance of getting money back, but to whom should I complain? It's gonna be lonely this Christmas...
