It's worse than that, they actually burn their equipment at the end of the game! I believe it was the great Hendrix himself who witnessed such incendiary behaviour, subsequently being inspired to burn his own 'bat' after each music match that he played.

George Michael just died, he was 53.

I would say,"Suck it 2016" but somehow, this doesn't seem...quite right to say *cough*.

That's saddened me..he always seemed like a decent fella, except when he was being erm, indecent. RIP George.

"Fast Buck" Roberts in the 25th Century

In the year 2012, Kickstarter launched one of the last of America's deep wallet probes. Aboard this compact starship sim a lone astronaut, Captain Chris "Fast Buck" Roberts, was to experience comical forces beyond all comprehension. In a freak mishap, his hooker-and-blow-support systems were overloaded by cash injections beyond imagination. Star Citizen was blown out of its plan trajectory into a developmental orbit 1,000 times more vast, an orbit which was to return "Fast Buck" Roberts to earth 500 years later. *cue music*

My favourite "Christmas" movie isn't set at the North Pole, it's set at the South. It's got everything you need from a festive film, loads of snow and ice, a whisky drinking chess computer and a shape shifting alien lifeform that wants to unite mankind. It's John Carpenter's The Thing.

So, I'm completely unfamiliar with this Snowman story/film. Which is odd because we generally get everything here in the colonies which is a mainstay back at home. This is a regular thing in Britain? Here it's always the Rankin and Bass specials, Rudolph in particular.

It's a fair bet that you'll find The Snowman on one of the channels at Christmas in the UK. It's one of the staples, along with the queen's speech, Sergio Leone's Spaghetti western trilogy and The Great Escape.

Given the thick Mockney accents in that trailer and the theme of involuntary plasma transfusion, I think they should have called it Bloody Hell.

"We're picking something up on the long range scan, captain"
"What is it, ensign?"
"I'm not sure Captain, it seems to be some kind of amorphous, dollar hungry space based blob, it's consuming cash at a hitherto unknown rate."
"Evasive maneuvers, ensign."
"Aye sir, changing course."

The plucky Brits fought a valiant rearguard action against the Nazi onslaught, spurred on by the dreadful thought of living in a tyrannical, highly surveilled state, bereft of personal freedom. Yep, we really dodged a bullet with that one.

Reminds me of an old joke: What's the difference between a bucket of sand and a bucket of afterbirth? You can't gargle with a bucket of sand.

It's like how the police always investigate themselves and find in favor of their own 99.7% of the time.

Is that an accurate figure, or did you just pluck it out of your surveillance camera?

Generally, the UK ASA is a very stringent body and will clamp down on anything that is a bit nebulous or downright misleading, although it has clearly fucked up on this occasion.

Be careful, Cutter, personal comments like that get you whacked over the head with a swingeing arc of the good ole banhammer.

Ah, the delicious irony. Here we are discussing freedom and Cutter, bless his poor troll soul, has had his curtailed. Thanks Blue

I just want you to know that every time I see your avatar, I read your post in a John Cleese voice.


Lol, that's cool nin, I think I'll be doing that too from now on

Oh scary wary woo, now the powers that be will know that I occasionally look at videos of large breasted ladies and like watching classic rock videos on Youtube. Somebody lock me up already. It seems to me that the only people scared of this legislation are those with something sinister to hide. It's akin to that crap that's often spouted about how the UK is a horrible place to live as it is the most surveilled country in the Western world. Really? Well, I've lived here all my life and the supposedly Orwellian observation is completely non-intrusive. Unlike, say, a round from a semi-automatic AR-15. But we don't have many civilians wandering about with those over here.

I don't mean to be insulting, but after having lived about equal time interspersed in the US, UK, mainland Europe, and also a few years in western Asia, I gotta say that this is one of the dumbest comments I've ever read online. Like, it's at that teetering point where it might be coming from a place of absolute blind ignorance, or blatant trolling; and these days, it's really hard to tell which.

Seriously, it ticks all the boxes for a quote from a model citizen in some dystopic novel. Funny how so many of those take place in the UK...

I fail to see what your brief, text-based travelogue has to do with the supposed absurdity of my comment. Am I supposed to infer that living in western Asia (wherever that highly vague location may be) is preferable to living in the UK? Now who's making dumb comments. The fact that I live in one of the most surveilled countries in the West doesn't bother me one single bit. Really. But hey, please feel free to expend some impotent rage on my behalf

Popular opposition to the law has already provoked over 133,000 citizens to sign a petition calling for its repeal, and although that is unlikely to happen, the petition's motion must now be considered by Parliament.

133,000 out of 65 million people. Kind of says it all about how most Brits value their privacy and allowing Big Brother to do whatever they want. Very sad indeed.

Actually it says more about how this story has successfully flown under the radar and received little coverage since it first became an issue, but don't let that get in the way of your obvious attempt at trolling.

Not my bag, but if they gave it a Star Wars skin and called it Tatooine Crop Rotator I might warm to it, especially if you had to save Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen from a roasting.
