  1. Blocking Porn - Censorship or Child Protection?

    We need a name for the future of this. China has the Great Firewall of China, we need something cool sounding too. I wish I could think of some funny name, that would make this post so much better.
  2. Post your Cooking!

    My mother chucks in a load of sugar at some point and it makes it quite sweet. My mother is fat.

    Same. I have an hour for lunch though. Any less and it'd be difficult. The sun is making running hard at the moment. The urge to run a marathon is building in me. Well, to be honest, it's more the urge to do an ultra-marathon, but I know the first step for that is to crack out a marathon or two. Need to bring some long runs into my routine.
  4. There's a quote from him on the BBC website: - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-23203033 Seems to me like he doesn't care, he's obviously got enough money to live his life how he likes, and is fine with it. In the Mail article it's his mate that's whining.
  5. What Have You Bought?

    Because I like to not die on my bike. Well, actually, I put my bike in for a puncture repair and they just stuck new pads on for me.
  6. Honeymoon Destinations... Help me out!

    Have you though about a cruise? The guy I share an office with went on one recently to get married and loved it. I've always wanted to go to the Galapagos Islands, just because they sound so interesting/different. There are probably visitor restrictions though (world heritage something or other) so that might make it costly.
  7. bad stuff thread.

    There's a post between yours and Ashley's, so yours is out of place without Ashley's quoted post.

    I've lost a stone between these two vids: http://ldsfhe.tumblr.com/post/39944668718 http://ldsfhe.tumblr.com/post/50356151983 I think it's starting to be noticeable! But, I'm done with the diet for a few weeks as I'm on holiday soon, and I'll be pigging out loads. Yay!
  9. I sold my two of my best players, so I'll not be contending for the title any more. It's all yours!
  10. That sucks, I think dirty trix are well lame.
  11. The Walking Dead

    Yes, we've just started season 3 and it's so so bleak. Standard Walking Dead fare.
  12. Last time you were beaten at home in a league match, who was that? . . . .
  13. Chrome playing up

    I submitted this bug last September and it was closed as unreproducible. It still happens.
  14. Weight Loss and Fitness 2013

    At least you can run. I went to a physiotherapist yesterday morning as my leg injury has just been going on forever (3 weeks). £42 for a half hour consult - urgh. I've strained my soleus muscle and developed scar tissue around it. YAY! Quick massage given, some ultrasound given, then some strengthening exercises and stretches prescribed. It already feels better. I'm going back next Tuesday and that's hopefully where she'll tell me I can run again.
  15. Nohomophobes

    Don't wind each other up plz. Let's be decent people.
  16. bad stuff thread.

    To the toilet!
  17. This makes me feel weird. How am I supposed to work now?
  18. good stuff thread.

    @bob try the why command in MatLab. Hours of fun.
  19. Weight Loss and Fitness 2013

    I'm injured right now. Kinda gutted about it. I felt something weird in my left calf on a run last week. I ran on it, and then ran on it the next day too. I started getting a weird clicking/popping sensation in my leg so I took a few days off. I went out again on Monday super slow, and just aggravated it back to how it was last week. I'm gonna take this week off and see what the deal is next Monday. The worst thing is having to reduce the amount I'm eating. I've gone from 10k of cycling per day and about 5k-10k of running to nothing.
  20. Television

    Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was another Sorkin series. It was cancelled after one season, but was pretty enjoyable and there are lots of West Wing cast cameos to get excited about. I know you said you didn't want to wait around, but The Newsroom is Sorkin's new thing, and the first season was amazing. I love Sorkin. Even though ... everything is kinda the same:
  21. Forum User Photos

    Or ... a scan/pic of a newspaper clipping.
  22. bad stuff thread.

    Is this becoming a secrets of word thread? :p Highlight text then press ctrl+alt+1 (or 2 or 3). Wowzer, it's a heading now.
  23. bad stuff thread.

    You'd be making different complaints about LaTeX I'd imagine. But still complaining. (I spent many hours just trying to get it to put images where I told it to put them.)
  24. Religions

    I came across this recently (probably on a trawl through the atheism subreddit - gotta stay informed!): It goes with what @Rummy and @MoogleViper have been saying.
  25. Smartphones - which one to buy?

    My dad has an Xperia U which can be updated to ICS. It's a low-midrange phone with a 3.5" screen. It's not slim, but not overly chunky. A downside is that you can't add a micros SD card to increase storage - so you're stuck with 4GB of usable memory.
