Re: Masks

Yes.

They do work, and I've finally found some which are comfortable to wear and which don't make me feel claustrophobic.

I don't want to be responsible for someone else's death, even if other folk do.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I worked on the counters at JS back in 2008. The waste was absolutely horrific, particularly on the salad bar. what's the waste like on those giant fuck off cakes they always have on the patisserie counter? Not a lot. We'd usually reduce them and there'd always be someone who bought them. Worst was...

Re: Brexit

Anyone suspect there might be some sort of Brexit compromise deal about to appear? That's the only thing I can think of that's so enraged Cummings and his mate that they've left No. 10 this quickly.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I've resisted the temptation to say this on this forum because I believe this transcends normal politics, but do you honestly believe 'the virus' is the single biggest existential threat we face? Will you really justify anything as long as the core aim of conquering 'the virus' is met, regardless o...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Anyone else find the narrative from the Welsh government a little bit alarming? Whether you agree with the lockdown or not is a matter for debate with arguments on both sides, but the government seem to have taken a very firm 'not interested in talking about it, just get on with it' approach in int...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Anyone else noticed the plethora of LGBTQ+ folk being "used" in adverts lately? A gay couple advertising broadband internet. A lesbian couple advertising a car buying/renting company. Trans individuals pushing Starbucks coffee. Is my innate cynicism justified in thinking that - much like b...

Re: New old games

I've downloaded the Windows emulated versions of Oscar and James Pond II Robocod, released for Amiga 1200, to enjoy on my media PC.

I'm 10 years old again.
