I felt your collective screams in the pit of my stomach - weird.

Things back up and running now. Many apologies for not getting to this sooner.

While I felt the story itself was lacking in funnies, I did love the caption.

Some additional spoofed made-up parts would have been good. Like air-brusing out parts of glaciers and pasting in duplicate penguins to make the situation seem more desparate, or post-production enhancements made to Attenborough's crotch bulge bigger.

Beautiful gay old Christmas fun on HMS Ocean.

The moment at around 3:18 is beautiful, not least because he looks a bit like Sergeant Major from It Ain't Half Hot Mum.

Great work from a newbie, hope there's more to come!

Speaking of Gaddafi and foodstuffs, did everyone catch the Nandos advert? Funny as! Youtube

Ohhhh, but pumpkin pie is lovely. I had some at a Halloween party last year.

I'm thankful for pie. Any pie.


From General Discussion / BBC publishes yet another non-news story pandering to Ricky Gervais' ego
Posted 23 Nov 11 17:24
If they put more money in to making something good, then the people would watch, and continue to watch. Interest would grow episode on episode.

Instead, they do a half assed job on the writing and spend, spend, SPEND!!! on the marketing. But people aren't so daft that they can't smell a poo from 10 paces and will avoid it, no matter how you dress it up.

Emperor's new clothes.

'nuff said.

(Except to say that, in this case, the writing probably wasn't that cheap.)

Ricky Gervais comedy Life's Too Short gets 2.5m viewers

Life's Too Short, the new comedy by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, attracted 2.5 million viewers for its BBC Two debut.

The audience was above the channel's average for that timeslot - which is 1.8m.

The BBC Two series, Rev also fared well, with a record audience of 2.4 million.

I don't like Gervais much. I haven't watched the show either, so I guess I can't comment on that.

This news article seems a bit bollocks though.

Two comedy shows get roughly the same audience figure, which is slightly higher than the average figure for their timeslots. But how do they calculate this average? Does it include just comedy shows broadcast at that time, or does it include shit like "Dancing with the Springwatch Stars Extra-Factor One Show"?

The Germans have this thing called Dosenstechen.


I wouldn't recommend doing it with a penknife though. They're crazy idiots. And a bunch of pussies. But anyway, the upshot is, shake it up, pierce it near the bottom, shove it in yer gob, then pull the ringpull and drink up.

Just read this, it's a fascinating tale.

The American POW who chose China

At the end of the Korean War, thousands of prisoners from both sides faced a choice - whether to return home or remain with their captors. David Hawkins was one of a handful of American GIs who chose to go to China.

From General Discussion / Preston Bus Station "Most Treasured Location"
Posted 5 Oct 11 19:27
However, I do quite like Preston train station. It's a bit of a state, but the Victorian ironwork architecture is lovely.

And the girl at Caffè Ritazza is nice.

Oh wow, I love Wikipedia.

Just sayin'

No, I'm not making it up.

Preston bus station on UK monument 'at risk' list

Preston Bus Station has been listed as one of the world's "most treasured locations".

The "brutalist" style building, earmarked for demolition, is one of seven monuments being placed on an "at risk" list by the World Monuments Fund (WMF).

It actually looks okay in the photo on the article. If you get up close and personal you'll realise the truth.

According to Wikipedia "Some claim that it is the second largest bus station in Western Europe." (I love how no-one knows for sure.) And, apparently, "A survey conducted by the Lancashire Evening Post in May 2010 found that Preston Bus Station was Preston people's favourite building."

It's a handy car park, but it's a real pain in the arse to get in and out. And the bus station is horrendous.

Cold, dark and dank. Preston, England's newest city.
