Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

That Philadelphia advert with its moist noises gives me the dry heaves. I think they’re going for an ASMR thing but it’s just gross

Re: Fuel situation in your area

I’m not sure what outcome you want except that you’re now you’re feeling the downsides of the free market so you want some intervention? I think doing as you suggest just amounts to faffing around at the edges. Those subsidies and VAT being removed would cost a lot and only take prices down to what ...

Re: The power of words

Re the holiday thing: you’ve had many a fun night at the clubs. Very much all of the fun with none of the trauma eh? Overall maybe you aren’t trying to establish a basis for exclusion. But politely phrased, logical-sounding wedge-driving online looks a lot like this, *is* widely done nowadays on *ex...

Re: The power of words

Oh that is weak bad faith shite and you know it. You don’t get to decide who’s in a movement you’re not part of, even if you do like to holiday there. So, you can either support it as it is, however it chooses to name itself, acknowledge you’re with “LGB only” folks that actively exclude and malign ...

Re: Lovely Lightbulbs

I don’t have much to add on the subject of LEDs but what a brilliant name for a lighting shop

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I don't know about anyone else but I feel we're living in a golden age of nectar points at the minute. The machine at the checkout just keeps on spitting out bonus points voucher after bonus points voucher, as does the app. Sainsbury's is very much a supermarket that wants me to stop ordering online...

Re: The current state of Christmas lights

https://assets.sainsburys-groceries.co.uk/gol/131894711/1/640x640.jpg I got these from sainsburys a couple of years ago. I made the mistake of believing the photo. In reality they were washed out, greyish nonsense that actively made the room more depressing. Also they smashed really easily. Threw t...

Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

All this ominous news about smaller energy suppliers being likely to go under and prices spiralling is a joy, so I thought we could display our moans or smugness at what’s about to happen. Personally I’ll be getting spanked. We rent an all electric flat so have to be savvy about cheap tariffs. I got...

Re: Tommy Robinson + other big libel cases...

That’s not true Laura. Anybody publicly naming the defendants under those circumstances would be guilty of contempt of court because it would potentially derail the multiple trials going on at the time. That’s why real journalists don’t. I’m curious though. What is the 10 percent that’s not crap? Be...
