I can't understand how anyone can eat that Mac sh*t.

How else are they going to be able to throw the packaging out of the window at the next traffic lights?

Guilty pleasure.

The attraction of Rugby League.

Been watching 'highlights' of this pseudo-rugby on the Beeb. Is this all the sport the beeb has left? Played in a weed-like half-empty stadium, do any other than a handful of northerners care about this? Never been the same since Eddie 'Up and Under' Waring retired. And what's with that Wheel Of Fortune VAR thing???

Not even a pleasure though, is it.

Ditto any Tuba part with semiquavers in it.

That is worse when you are the conductor because then you have zero control over what happens. But again why dies the composer ask for a noise that sounds like a cow's contribution to global warming in the first place? Usually you're better off if the poor chap has a senior moment and forgets to come in altogether.

Good one! :)

That reminds me, chopsticks, pffff dicking around with a couple of sticks, just give me a fork, I'm all for cultural differences and stuff but come on a fork is so much better.

Geology. I mean, I can parrot-speak how if one imagines the time the earth has existed as one hour, organic life only began to appear in the last ten minutes or so, I know that chalk is the remains of dead shell fish that existed when the Wealden Dome was nothing more than a lagoon type environment, I understand that it heaved out of the ocean when Africa collided with Europe, I know that what emerged was called the Wealden dome and that immediately it surfaced it began to erode leaving behind the north downs and south downs and greensand ridge and the high weald and the low weald and the surrey weald as remnants. I just don't believe that there was enough water to cause all that erosion to take place and I don't believe that there would be all that sedimentary rock to erode. I just don't believe it/understand it. And where did the London clay come from? Why is it that it's there? Why is there a heap of clay beginning at South Norwood Hill and finishing at - I don't know - Peckham Rye? Why's that not explained on an information board at Beulah Hill?

China were the first to invent forks yet they switched to chopsticks later (although these days use both), so there must be something in them. Think theres plenty of advantages if you look at their cuisine. Better than forks for noodle soup, or scooping rice into your mouth when they hold the bowl up to their face.

Lots of cultural jibber jabber too though, after having a quick google.

London clay right down to Redhill. Lovely for growing roses, and f*ck all else.

Didn't know the Chinese invented the fork but yeah been to a number of SE Asian countries and it's amazing how quickly they can polish off a bowl of soup just with a pair of chopsticks. I'm just a bit crap at it.

Single use plastic stickers on fruit. Just in case I couldn’t tell it was a kiwifruit or banana.

Why do dog walkers sometimes tie their bags of dog shite to tree branches in various beauty spots/communal leisure areas?

Surely you've done the hard bit?

I don't understand. :confused:

Staines Eagle 21-09-2019 09:58 PM

Also, why do you often see appeals for witnesses to a fatal motor vehicle accident, months and months after the incident?

Surely, unless you were involved, you would have long forgotten anything potentially useful?

Iíd like to think they put it on a tree branch in order to pick it back up on their return, so they donít have to walk around with it....but sadly I think they just donít want to walk around with it.

The twats.

RL is a great sport. Need to be hard as nails to play it. And it was the forerunner for technology in sport

I suppose that's a possibility I hadn't considered.

Mind you, I saw a lady walking along the Thames recently, shopping bag in left hand, eating a sandwich in her right and bag of Dog shite hanging off her right pinkie! :eek:
