So, it looks as thoiugh the dead spy in a bag thing is over,
and there was nothing dodgy in the case. Do you believe this? Do you think the government is covering up something? Do you trust the buggers? Are you bothering to vote tomorrow?

Smiley Culture
I've just bought tickets to the Da Vinci anatomical drawings exhibition at Buckhingham Palace for Monday. Get me, I'm so cultural. I'm currently reading a translation of the Icelandic saga of Njal, too. I'm really 'into culture'. But are you? Or are you more of an 'X Factor and James Patterson' kind of wanker?

Defend you oafish interests, you grotty peasants.

Here's a new thread.
I see the French National Front came a fairly hefty third in their presidency first round. As we all know, the French are to a man (soz Kroney) a bunch of racist, smelly cowards who’ll do anything to protect their subsidised shit wine production and spend their lives striking and generally making a nuisance of themselves, and smoking Gauloises. They’ve always been like that, so it’s no major surprise. The cunts.

But do you think that we with our basic human decency and our noble, Imperial tolerance and sense of fair play, will ever become so hemmed-in by ghastly foreigns overrunning our green and pleasant land, that the so-called ‘far right’ will ever gain such respectability? As the island becomes more and more cramped is it an inevitability?

(clue: I'm looking for kneejerk grandstanding, outraged worthiness, people storming off the board, accusations of various prejudices etc)

EDIT Alt: I see Duran Duran are playing a gig for the fucking Olympics. Is there an act/person you consider to be a more fitting choice?

So, the courts have ruled that The Pirate Bay should be blocked by ISPs
And immediately lots of ill informed arguments commenced on the internet about whether or not copying a film is "theft" or "copyright infringment" and whether or not the BPI have actually bothered to do any research on whether or not people who download stuff actually buy more stuff too.

John Humphries took the biscuit though, for immediately saying that it was the duty of the ISP to block pornography so that children couldn't access it.

How upset would you be if they blocked porn on the internet?

ALT: Over the road from my house there has been a car parked for months with a big advert tied to the roof

It finally got moved last night (after complaints to the council) but they left two traffic cones to try and reserve the space. So this morning I moved the cones and parked my van there.

When were you last really petty? Battered, there is no need for you to answer this one.

finished my first day at my new job
Sadly my induction covered none of the important questions like "where are the toilets?", "how often can I slope off for a fag before it's considered taking the piss?"and "where can I get a decent pint round here?"

Also whileI had a PC and a desk I was of course missing half the accounts and half the software I needed so I didn't get to do anything constructive. Par for the course I reckon.

Then crammed onto the tube back to Euston just in time to get a table seat back to Brum.

How was your day?

My loser housemate is dropping out of the same course he dropped out of last year.

Un-necessary arguments
Obviously we all argue about everything on here but what other arguments have you ended up having about nothing?

I was in a pharmacy yesterday and was getting grief for having taken Co-Codamol for longer than three days as it can cause "addiction". Quite why I could be addicted to pills that don't fucking do anything is beyond me.

I got up at 5:45 this morning
And still had to run for the 6:50 train even though the station is less than 5 minutes from my door.

This was after briefly waking at 4:50 and then falling back into a dream where I overslept until 9.

How long does it take you to get out the door of a morning?

It's Friday afternoon. Poets day, and that.
In honour, write a short poem about how you feel today.

Of colds and stuff.
My snotty nose,
So red it glows,
And my hacking cough
Can fuck right off.
