  1. Job woes/wins

    Time to discuss all of those ups and downs of the 50 year sentence we call a career. I've just been accepted for an interview. Good news, although it's in Leeds on a wednesday (means travelling up tuesday night, coming back weds night). Not sure how I can get the time off, we're pretty busy at work. Might have to pull a sickie. Also, it's in Leeds, so that's a lot of travelling. Why am I putting it off? Well it's a fixed term contract until the end of 2014. I really want to move but it seems like it might be a bit silly to leave a fairly well paid job, to have no guarantee of future employment after 8 months. Thoughts?
  2. Black Mirror

    I just got around to watching White Christmas. Fuck me, what a show. Whilst I do like Charlie Brooker's comedy, I don't think he's amazing, and he gets very samey quite quickly. But with Black Mirror, it's completely different. Every episode has been brilliant. It's managed to be genuinely thought provoking (and not at all pretentious). This is definitely his forte. Black Mirror is one of my favourite shows. I know there's only been 7 episodes, but for me it's a contender for one of the best shows of all time (I wouldn't say it's number 1, not at all, but it's definitely near the top). I honestly believe that, although maybe somewhat of a cult favourite, in future years and generations we will look back, and consider Black Mirror to be one of the defining pieces of our generation. What are other people's thoughts? If you haven't seen it, then you can watch it all here on 4OD. (Not sure if it works outside of UK, but if you don't know how to access a TV show on the internet then what have you been doing all these years? I'm sure you can access it on your Z-Eye.) Previous threads for Series 1 and Series 2.
  3. Pets are funnies

    Thought it was time we had a pets thread. I don't have any pets as I'm allergic to a few things but here is a picture of my sister's dogs. I want to see more funny/interesting/cute pictures of your pets.
  4. Awesome stuff thread

    'cos I'm in a thread creating mood and the funny stuff thread just doesn't quite cut it.
  5. House buying is the worst

    What would the difference in value be if the garage had to come down? I'd imagine it would be more than 3.1%. Definitely more than 1.5%. Would you also have to pay to bring it down yourself?
  6. bad stuff thread.

    It would probably make more sense. I went back for a follow up. He said the corneal ulcer had cleared up, but it had left some scarring on my eyeball. So now I'm using moisturising drops to help the scarring heal
  7. bad stuff thread.

    Had an issue with my left eye for a week and a half now. Been taking antibiotic eye drops for a week but no improvement. Paid for a test at Specsavers who referred me to a specialist. Was waiting 2.5 hours at the hospital, finally get to the appointment, she looks into my eye for 30 seconds and tells me to shampoo my eyeballs twice a day. The fuck?! She also gives me an ointment that I need to put inside of my eyelids.
  8. House buying is the worst

    This is one thing I'm unsure about. How far out will people move to/from? Currently considering places such as Watford, Rickmansworth etc. But are those (particularly Watford) the areas that people will be moving too or moving from? As for the stamp duty holiday, I'm hoping that means a small drop once that ends next month.
  9. House buying is the worst

    What's everyone's thoughts on the future of property prices, particularly in and around London? With covid job losses, brexit job losses, more people going remote working and therefore able to live elsewhere, I keep expecting house prices to go down. But they seem to keep rising. I still don't understand how that can possibly be. The average salary and average house price don't match up.
  10. Do you know what you're doing?

    I feel like I know what I should be doing. But I also feel far too lazy to actually do it.
  11. Old NE Members

    Not sure that's always the case. I often regret things as I'm doing them.
  12. Who are you?

    I hope that you know who I am. I'm Luke, the one who posts about my scirocco and dad-barge.

  14. Firefly/Serenity Fans?

    @Cube pretty sure this is a bannable offence.
  15. Personal Finance

    I've never found saving to be difficult. I don't actually save, and I've never had a budget. However I am pretty frugal. I'll always make sure I shop around for the best deal, try not to waste money. Any purchase that's reasonably large I always give myself at least a few days to think about it. Often after a day or two you realise you actually don't care about it so it stops you wasting money on impulses. I'm always surprised by how much money people waste on things like phone contracts, car insurance etc. just because they didn't do some research. Pretty much a "look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves" approach.
  16. bad stuff thread.

    Can you get a pimple on the inside of your eyelid? I've had them on the end of my eyelid before but not inside.
  17. Job woes/wins

    Based on your posts (mostly about when you worked at Tesco) it comes across as if you have a bit of an issue with authority/lack of respect. Although nobody here has actually worked with you so can't say whether this is actually how you act at work; perhaps just the way you rant. That's just the impression I get from your previous posts. Though I know how hard job seeking can be so sympathise with your above post.
  18. Help Me Identify This Old Ice Cream

    I'm always annoyed when I'm looking for the solution to something, and I find a thread with the exact same issue, but no solution posted. Even worse when the OP just says, "never mind, I've solved it now" with no further explanation. So kudos for actually signing up and posting the answer to help other googlers.
  19. Something funny, or an interesting fact about yourself. To be honest it doesn't matter than much as you'll initially be judge on your photos alone, and then the majority of times you'll be initiating conversation. If you can think of something to put that might give them a topic to discuss or ask you about that may help with conversation but don't sweat the profile bit.
  20. Create a mixtape

    We did this before. The playslist still exists on spotify, it's called KNEE Moosic!!!
  21. Who knows what monkeys eat?

    breadbread is really good for soaking up the drinkdrink when you're drunk continuously.
  22. Who knows what monkeys eat?

    Do you eat monkeys because you like to eat monkeys, or do you do it just to prevent them from eating your bread (breadbread)? Is it's the latter you don't need to go to the trouble of eating the monkeys as you can just buy the bread( breadbread) continuously.
  23. Who knows what monkeys eat?

    u wot m8?
  24. Who knows what monkeys eat?

    Of course not, you don't even have acne. Are you even a male nè, bro?
  25. What terrified you as a child?

    The family from The Queen's Nose Don't know what it was but they really creeped me out.
