Darth Vader Auction for Alzeimers UK

A charity auction is being done for some cool Star Wars/Clockwork Orange/Horror items. It's all for charity so go nuts. https://bid.eastbristol.co.uk/auctions/7797/sreas10467

My favourite is this because I'm a Boba Fett fan

Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, Harry Potter, etc)

I first saw her in Shakespeare's As You Like It on the West End about 15 years ago. You knew she'd make it back then.

Dyslexics are swiftly becoming the new vegans.

No-one cares if you're dyslexic, you don't need to put it into every conversation.

Re: Add labels to post action buttons

I'm reticent to change anything that could stop the underlying software from being updated. Things like this need to be decided by committee because it could take a lot of upkeep years down the line. If there is a way to do it without breaking the underlying code then I don't see a problem but we sh...

But no. Lex Luthor is someone intelligent. Cumberbatch has a face of a donkey.

Re: Spain to launch trial of four-day working week

People, I think judging this by how things work now is ridiculous, it's like judging the taste of bananas on the taste of apples. Anything like this would take a major rethink in things like minimum wage, unemployment benefit and holiday pay and saying it's bad just because it wouldn't work the way ...

Re: Spain to launch trial of four-day working week

Everyone is probably thinking about office or manufacturing type jobs, but what does this mean for service type jobs? "oh, yeah, um, you can't get any services done tomorrow because everyone is off... oh, it is your day off and you can't come in on the days we're open?" Are businesses sup...

Re: 6pm curfew for men

While I agree UK is safer than US... it isn't because of laws... Laws only work if they are policed AND people respect the laws. Criminals by definition do not respect laws and it isn't a deterrent as the risk-reward still makes criminal activity viable. Sure make every crime a death penalty and ma...

Whether true or not, that has nothing to do with your post to arm a woman with a knife to protect herself from a knife or gun wielding man twice her size, and the draconian laws that currently prevent women from protecting themselves. Our country is safer than yours and like it or not, laws like th...

Re: Batman Vs Superman

that comes back to casting. You need to pick the correct actor for the type of role... and also not to fulfil some woke criteria. Jesse Eisenberg was the worst pick for Lex... REALLY REALLY bad (as I said the Riddler would have been better for his style). Mark Strong might have been good as Lex Ben...
