    Blimey, mate, that's good news. Hope all stays well.
  2. bad stuff thread.

    Oh, having a heatwave are we? 30 degrees is it? It's 38 degrees in Shanghai right now.
  3. Back in the gym for boxing. It's been almost 13 years since I did any training or fights.
  4. bad stuff thread.

    Max Von Sydow has died, and that's just shit.
  5. Sitting here in Shanghai, I can tell you that it keeps getting re-released and remixed. Sick of hearing it. It's like Gangnam Style or CottonEye Joe, but with less dancing.
  6. Happy birthday, Ashley! PS: Rick the Hamster will never be in Smash for two reasons: He is not in Fire Emblem. You have to be in Fire Emblem and have a sword to be a DLC character. Spitting straight truths here.

    My tea went cold...

    Merry Christmas 2U-Haul! Just arrived back in the UK last night, staying in a shitty seafront hotel in my hometown. The first room they put us in was an accessibility room, which is wonderful that they have but... erm... it was fucking filthy to put it mildy and I'm not sure how "accessible" a room is when theire a desk chair that doesn't fit under the desk and blocks access to the bed. I went down and asked very politely for a change. They upgraded us to a seaview room that was larger but the bed is a single and a half, so, fun times.
  9. The Star Wars Thread

    Regret that I agree with you on this - especially as virtually nothing is available on streaming services in China. Unless it's an "All-Glory-To-The-Party" historical epic. But frankly, they can keep those.
  10. Job woes/wins

    AMEN, BROTHER. We have the "Citrix Receiver" system installed: the advantage is, "you can log in to any computer, and your desktop will be right there!" Only problem is, every time the system updates ... YOUR DESKTOP IS WIPED CLEAN AND ALL BOOKMARKS IN BROWSERS DISAPPEAR! What an advantage! But as the higher-ups said "It's a great system, and it's all you'll ever need!". NOPE
  11. bad stuff thread.

    Broke my left arm last Sunday. Made a spectacular diving save to deny the other team a goal, but caught it only on my left hand, so it took all of the impact. There was a loud *CRUNCH* and I felt like I'd strained the tendons.It hurt for the rest of the afternoon, but was ok Monday thought nothing of it, really. Anyway, I remembered a friend of the family was a doctor at a hospital near my new school, so I thought I'd get it checked out on Tuesday. Really felt there was nothing to worry about. NOPE. Double-break.
  12. bad stuff thread.

    Yeah, I was on a 5-hour flight with a baby behind me @Animal and it was pretty nightmarish. Making it worse was Captain Masculine in front of me - his friend was leaning over our seats to talk to him, and thrusting his nuts in Mrs Iun's face. When I said "Sorry, do you mind if my wife sits here while you lean over?" they got all "What did you say? What did you say?!" to me. Anyway, the baby stopped crying and I put my head on the tray table for a doze. Suddenly, Captain Masculine rams his seat back, clobbering me. I said a rude word and he decided we should "Sort things out when we got on the ground" and then used the Chinese version of the N-Word for white people. Which got Mrs Iun angry. Anyway, the guy was super masculine, as you can tell. Because he threatened me on a plane. Which makes him masculine. And not stupid. Because masculine people threaten people on planes. That's what they do.
  13. Rate the last film you saw

    Rampage (2018) I love The Rock, and I don't think he's that bad in almost everything he has been in. This movie was fair - probably a 6/10 for me, a pretty good spin on a great old arcade game. The CGI was good, the message was poignant, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan was... himself as in everything he's ever been in, but nice to see him playing against type. If you've got little better to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon, you could do a lot worse than this movie. The bad guys were a bit cartoonish though.

  16. Because they are more Machine now than Man - twisted and evil.
  17. With the exception of Iron Fist, I pretty much loved all the Marvel Netflix shows, though I'll admit season 2 of Luke Cage was disappointing.
  18. Doctor Who

    I haven't watched Dr Who since the second Matt Smith season - it all got so complicated and meta that I found it difficult and dull to follow.
  19. I liked Iron Fist, mostly because everything was fairly simple.
  20. How am I? Quickly disappearing over the Madness Horizon and still accelerating.
  21. What terrified you as a child?

    ET. I walked into my friend's front room at the moment when the alien screams, it was just horrible timing. Ever since then, I was convinced that ET was waiting in every bush, hiding behind the curtains or in the dank patch at the bottom of the garden.
  22. Westworld (TV series)

    Took a long time to get going, but the last few episodes were amongst the finest TV that I have seen.
  23. Fortnite

    I'm enjoying this, but I don't like how you have to pay for the things that you have unlocked. If you unlock something, you shouldn't then need currency to open it.
