Re: The confessional

I once ate a 1kg bag of mini eggs in 2 days. It's a wonder I didn't turn diabetic or something.

Re: Evolving language

Tell me about it. Apparently it's no longer acceptable to say "that's gay" to mean "that's a bit shit". Typical PC soup-of-the-day nonsense

Re: Class of 2007

Re: Canada Baby First Without Gender

This is very north american.

Re: UK election June 8

In retrospect I think they held the tories in check to a greater extent than they are given credit. Especially the authoritarian crap that May wanted to push through (and is now doing).

Still, it...

Re: Digital Media Players - tips?

I know people that have those kodi android tv boxes and they swear by them. It's a bit murky legally though (and no, I don't have one - I just use my PS4 and the TV's smart features)

Re: British treats you can't get here:

Choc brazils are sold in bulk at every supermarket I've been in. Can't vouch for the quality of the chocolate though as I've never bought them.

Re: Man's surname too offensive for NS Car plate ...

You know when you see a proper media outlet do a story about something Canadian and the local media just can't help themselves but report on it. This is like the opposite of that. When I saw it...

This guy knew what he was doing. Maybe it's in his rights, but he's still an arsehole.

Re: Iconic album covers

ITT:
- People stretching the meaning of "iconic" to mean stuff they like.
