  1. Is Ricky Gervais a 'mong'?

    Yes, she does look like a mong, because she is a sufferer of mongolism (Down's Syndrome). It's a pretty inappropriate comment, no matter how you look at it
  2. Is Ricky Gervais a 'mong'?

    None other. It's actually quite offensive in that context.. Mong is short for mongoloid, or mongolism, which is literally an older/alternative term for Down's Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21. It's the meaning of the term, and the origin of the term. The fact people don't know this doesn't mean Ricky Gervais doesn't. He might seem stupid, but he almost certainly knows that. I don't find him amusing in the slightest, but that has nothing to do with this. It has to do with the fact he isn't funny.
  3. HP Touchpad

    No no, the TouchPad does not have USB Host support. You can't directly upload stuff to it like this. You need to transfer it from a computer.
  4. Avira, Avast or AVG

    Microsoft Security Essentials. You install it and forget about it. All updates even come through normal Windows Update so there's no extra updating or bullshit you have to ever think about.
  5. Renting Properties

    You've done the wise thing by not falling into the house share trap. FUCK shared rooms in a house. Even if you're there with only friends, it's just an awful idea unless by serendipity you're all amazingly well adjusted and respect each other.. and have jobs..
  6. RAM

    Here's a nice article about Sandy Bridge and choosing DDR3 to go with it: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4503/sandy-bridge-memory-scaling-choosing-the-best-ddr3/1 Their conclusion is that DDR3-1600 is probably enough, and faster RAM doesn't yield a decent performance increase in real world applications.
  7. Mini desktop to be used as media center?

    If you like the Mac Mini, but you don't like the idea of burning money for the sake of it, and you actually want an optical media drive (even blu-ray, which Apple won't ever give you): http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-zino-hd-410/fs
  8. Low Orbit Ion Cannon When harpoons, air strikes and nukes fail..
  9. Veganism

    You really think the only source of protein is animal products? Oh dear
  10. Veganism

    Huh. I've been vegan for almost 10 years, I guess about 10 in November or something like that. I don't tend to talk about it though, because people sometimes give you shit, as if they're offended you don't eat the same things they do, so there are people I've known for a long time who don't realise it. I don't have any friends who are vegan.
  11. N-Europe London Meet - 16th July 2011

    It's cheap. Texts are regulated by the EU to be something like 12p a text. It's more expensive for me to text from the UK to Denmark than it is for me to text someone in Denmark, when I'm in Denmark, using a UK phone...
  12. What does beer mean to you?

    Just to say, thank you, Belgium. You are the best beer nation. :3 Kriek is pretty good, but believe me, there are a lot more like that from Belgium. Infact, I love wheat beer... ahhh.. and all those different trappist beers that are so strong... mmmm <3
  13. I don't know, years. January 2002 or something stupid
  14. New York bans smoking outdoors.

    Hear that, people with respiratory issues? THE INTERNET TELLS YOU TO MAN THE FUCK UP
  15. New York bans smoking outdoors.

    Hitler was a great man, and to be compared to him would surely be an honour
  16. New York bans smoking outdoors.

    I feel like liberty should be defended, but at the same time, fuck smoking. Especially on beaches, fuck, kids play in that sand, and smokers just cover the fag end over with a bit of sand, out of sight, out of mind!
  17. Homage to the old C-E members

    Fuck knows, he plays WoW though and he texted me a while back asking why I hadn't been on so often. But yeah, not in the channel, which is sad. This is a glorious thread! I certainly remember you, Blackbird
  18. I did too. Awesome. I'd totally do that.
  19. AdBlock

    I use Adblock Plus AND Noscript and temporarily allow sites all the time, rarely permanently. I don't have problems with youtube, but I'm more than happy to skip around a few options to get things to work in exchange for security
  20. I has a laminator! I r old.

    I'm not old! I might be 25 but fuck that shit, I'm not old
  21. Only bad people don't have MSN

    Yeah, you pretty much need MSN. I don't have a Facebook account. I do use AIM, ICQ, IRC, MSN though, but not Yahoo! anymore since I don't know a single person that still uses it
  22. Unlikely Dislikes

    But this sounds like the most perfect pairing!
  23. Drive Thru - Tesco Style!!!

    I rarely know what I want, so I actually don't mind wandering around
  24. What's a Good Pub Quiz Team Name?

    When the pub I used to quiz at was open (closed due to the owner getting an engineering job) we used to be called Team Dave (none of us were called Dave)
