Re: Hold the front page! Some news happened. Film at 11

What kind of wild dinner parties do these people have where a bed is required in the dining room..? https://i.guim.co.uk/img/static/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2013/11/18/1384777965335/e85f779d-c64f-4a39-9135-283378fd4eae-2060x1425.jpeg?width=1010&quality=85&auto=format&fit=max&s=57dbc6e405efc3...

Re: Mental Health

That's key, I think - having a team of people who can get an understanding of the individual's condition, rather than adopting a "well, this dosage of this drug works for those people, so it will work for you" approach. I was reading something a while ago where there was an effort to understand the ...

Re: Geek Anvil (currently geeking...)

4K? Pah! when I was a nipper my ZX81 had 4 times as much K, and setting it up was a doddle (granted, you needed some plasticine to stick the Ks to the back of the machine, since wobbles=crash, but still).

Re: Lockdown Blues

We're now in month #4 of lockdown, although simultaneously in Phase 3 of reopening. Offices are still closed, ours says we can work from home until January 2021 if we like, but restaurants are open for outdoor dining (but please don't be an a$$hole, and wear a mask when your server comes to take you...

Remember, only leave the house if absolutely necessary and don't carry a rucksack full of weed when you do.

And some music docu on Netflix, yesterday I was Devil on the crossroads about Robert Johnson. That's a great doc! Watched it a while back, really interesting to see the layers peeled back, to get some idea of who he really was as opposed to the myth. There's another doc in a similar vein called The...

Since I'm Doing My Bit to defeat Covid-19 and limiting myself to leaving the house once a week for groceries, I stayed up until 4am watching Norsemen. It's...interesting. Definitely reminiscent of Chelmsford 123, the characters are fab, the script is superb - 12/10 would rape and pillage again. Now ...

Norsemen looks like a top show - thanks for the tip! Definitely has shades of Chelmsford 123 (and that really was a top show), and therefore A Very Good Thing. I can't find Chelmsford on HBO or Netflix or for that matter, C-More. :( It's available on Channel 4 but you mau need VPN. I recommend Nord...

OK, guys, I'll be honest here. This stuff is starting to scare me. I'm not scared of getting sick, but I am scared of what society is going to look like in 3, 6, 12 months time if this thing goes the distance. If all goes well, if people self-isolate, if we practice social distancing, if if if, then...

Just to confirm - my class stated that their least favourite biscuits were custard creams, followed by plain hobnobs. Custard Creams are Covid-19 in baked form, Nice biscuits are infused with SARS before they leave the factory, and it's a matter of public record that plain Hobnobs were Peter Sutcli...
