One proper bought in Egypt in 90's. To that point I'd only thrown up up about half a dozen times in my life, all bar one alcohol related. Ended up with the then missus calling in the Hotel doctor, and she was a nurse who'd  done relief work in Gaza during the first intifada, so didn't scare easy. Spent four days in the room on fluids only. Unfuckingbelievable stomach cramps, at the start I actually shat and puked simultaneously whilst collapsing sideways onto the bathroom floor. The doc reckoned I'd been given local tap water in a mineral water bottle. Whatever, still shudder remembering it now.

That works for me. And to echo Misura again, all the instant outrage gets very wearing these days. And I was one of those who had to google what upskirting was.

Chope seems a right twat though my response was similar to Misura's, along lines what the fuck are they doing wasting parliamentary time on this in the first place. We are hardly replete with it given the whole Brexit elephant.

As for the England team I like the way Southgate has been setting them up of late and also like the fact that it's more about a functioning team than building around any"must play" players.

1. I want to do an overnight sleeper train, but don't fancy Penzance so much, just want to sleep on a train.

2. I've always wanted to wallpaper one of my living room walls with what I thought would be custom made wallpaper of a huge Nasa photo of a nebula. Turns out, I'm not alone, you can buy that shit now, which has taken the shine off my aesthetic somewhat. https://www.muralswallpaper.co.uk/shop- … all-mural/

A mate had something similar painted on the ceiling of his loft apartment in London. Bit to dark arts for me, I had blue sky with white clouds air brushed onto mine

I agree and I don't, lots of people got an opinion but happy to go to Thailand, when there's little difference.

And of course the media is skewered because Myanmar don't buy US or UK bombs and hardware, so they're the bad guys.

Yep, nobodies boycotting the World Cup over Russia's assorted crimes are they.

After chatting with KOS i've pinged him via Facebook for what it's worth. Is anybody in contact with the bird he married last year?

Fine by me. I'd rather wait a couple of years and do it with grads playing football than have Ron Manager stick a load of lumpy twats in in to force the play offs or spend 80 million on better foreign mercenaries. As for Saiz, he needs to sort his attitude. good player but, neither he or for that matter the swede or any other fucker should be allowed to swan about like they are doing us a favour. If they were better than us they wouldn't have come in the first place. Pre season should start with with the coaching staff being issued with horse whips.

It may not be popular to say so but... Whilst this squad are clearly no set of World beaters I believe they where capable of better than they have delivered.

That we do not and are not is to my mind squarely down to the management, whichever head coach plus the back room staff. Persisting with 4 2 3 1 when clearly we do not have a 1 up to us playing that way is the glaringly obvious error. Managers need to make the best use of the resources at their disposal, if they did not then they are not doing their job. Neither of our managers this season has earned their corn.

Blunders by our number 1 and 2 keepers must of cost 12 points. If we can flip saiz for 4 mill or more , I’d snatch their hand off.
When your struggling in bad runs as we have been. Go 442 , 2 solid banks of 4 knowing their jobs and doing it , simple.

I think all on here would have dropped Von Flap in October and he alone must be responsible for 12 points. With formations, well just use one that makes est use off your squad whichever it is.

Never knew my dad’s parents, both died young. My mum’s dad was a a kindly bloke who was a watchmaker when that was a highly skilled trade. It was such that at the outbreak of world war 2 he was turned down by the army, the air force and the navy as he was reserve listed for war work. He pent the duration making intricate bits and bobs including the glider cast off mechanisms for D Day. He unfortunately died young when I was 11. My mum’s mum lived on and on defying medical opinion which is a shame as she was a right cow. My parents did not know whether she was coming to their wedding up to the point that she walked in and preceded to act like the Duchess of Pudsey. She had told mum prior to the wedding, “don’t come running to me with your oily brats when he leaves you for a younger woman. “ Mum was 9 years older than my dad. We ended up with a surrogate in her sister my mums and our Auntie Nellie. A women of warmth and heart who carried a little of the sun in her pocket wherever she went. She’d been a motorcycle despatch rider during the war, how cool is that? She made the best chips ever, me and my brother “the little loves” even when we were hulking sulking  teenagers could do no wrong. We loved here dearly and I wept like a child when she died and have shed a couple of tears writing this.

So Baby Driver lost out at Dunkirk at both the BAFTAs and The Oscars which frankly is bollocks. With the exception of the scene in the boat on the beach the Dunkirk soundtrack is nowt to write home about. I take some comfort from the award from AMPs which is of course voted for by film sound professionals but not much. Told my mate to chin some cunt from the academy, he's on the whiskey apparently so you never know, he might make the evening news yet.

This mate of mine and CBIT just picked best sound at AMPS - Association Of Motion Picture Sound for the Baby Driver mix beating Blade Runner and Dunkirk amongst others. He might yet be in with a shout for Horsforth's first Oscar. Perhaps they can name a pub after him like the Brownlees.
