Final game of the decade and a game both sides will be desperate to win to end December on a high. One of the best away days of the season too and a visit to the Caledonia beforehand to take advantage of pre-match pints. I can see this being a tough game for Killie, especially since Alan Power is suspended so that'll leave us with a bit of a puzzle in the midfield. I quite liked using Liam Millar as lone striker at Ibrox and I also liked seeing Iain Wilson start a game too, hoping that he starts again. Anyway, let's get the ball rolling.
A thread to highlight absolute nonsense, be it just silly pish that is clearly absolute bollocks that idiots believe in, or some malicious crap that not only tries to rip foolish folk off with hysteric bullshit claims but can actually be harmful to people. Or indeed anything else that is, quite frankly, bullshit. To kick off I’m going with some of the malicious crap. This comes from Goop, the astonishing ‘health and lifestyle’ website belonging to Gwyneth Paltrow. Frankly the entire site could be listed, but I’ll just list a couple of things from this depository of lies. First up; wearable stickers that promote healing. Yes, they’re actually hawking stickers that apparently can do magical things for you, for just $36. Bargain. It’s claimed that the stickers are made from the same material as NASA space suit lining. In fact, this is what they say; “The stickers are made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear.” And they apparently “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies,” NASA, after wiping the tears of laughter from their eyes, replied with that it “does not line its spacesuits with conductive carbon material.” Staying with Goop, they also sell jade eggs for women to put up their fanny. I’m not joking.
There must have been a post or two over the last ten years that you've read on here that's made you cringe. What's the worst/most cringeworthy/most memorable shite you've seen? Here's an example.
Reading through The Tartan Special One the other day (again) made me wonder how exactly it would look as a film. And then I started wondering what actors would play the characters etc., and before long I got thinking: what films should exist, but don't? I reckon with the hivemind of p&b we can get a few pitched. Here's mine: Liam Neeson, after many years of starring in films such as Taken and other films that are incredibly similar, is drunk on success (and cheap white cider) and can no longer tell the difference from when he's acting on camera and real life. As a result, his accent has gone totally to pot and has settled somewhere on a booming Ian Paisley-esque dialect. To make matters even worse for our man, he's ended up incredibly hungover in Perth, not knowing how or why he ended up there after a boozy sesh in London. While looking for his supposedly kidnapped daughter (who doesn't actually exist) he bumps into the Mongo Army on Tayside Derby day and ends up going on all sorts of madcap adventures with them. So, p&b, what other films are out there, waiting to be made? Edited because I said Mongo Brigade, not Mongo Army. Don't wanna mix the two up.
