"If you want the politician from central casting, it's just not me, it's the other guy."

Err, ok. I wouldn't vote for Labour because they allowed the chinless wonder to be the leader; if that isn't a damning indictment on the party, I don't know what is. His brother was clearly the better choice, but for some reason didn't get the job.

I wouldn't vote for any of the others either, just to be clear.

I recall seeing a similar looking statue on the odd little old building opposite St Mary Redcliffe church. I tried to take a picture, but was too far away for it to be visible.

I haven't seen these guys but saw a brief advert for them the other day. Wiki currently says

Quote
The couple regularly appear on ITV's This Morning hosting a segment about anxiety issues and phobias.
 
In early 2014, it was announced that the couple would host their own daytime television show called The Speakmans.[1][2] The show aired for 20 episodes, beginning on 14 July 2014.[3]
 
The Speakmans are regular columnists in 'Love It Magazine'. Although it really looks like Nik wears some form of comedy wig it's actually just very odd regular hair.

I can't see that lasting for long, so I've quoted for posterity.

It might be that the fan needs a clean out, but iMacs are not exactly easy to open up and you have to be careful about static discharge when vacuuming out the dust. It might be resolved by sticking the vacuum nozel up to the fan slots.

Quote
+I suggest shutting down and vacuuming out the bottom grill work and small intake port under the stand on a regular bases. Dust build up will vary depending on the environment, if a small amount of dust is noticed after a couple of months then perhaps a quarterly vacuuming is in order.+

+My Intel iMac will be 5 years this next January and I have faithfully vacuumed out the air intakes every few months sense the day it was new. After 3 years of running, in Jan of 09 I opened her up to upgrade the Hard Drive and there was almost no dust build up on the fan blades or anywhere inside of the iMac.+

+Caution: do not disturb the dust with the iMac on (fans running) or blow with compressed air, that will do nothing except to blow what little dust is collected on the air intakes deeper into the iMac.+

Tantra are only dubious as they are the kind to install bootleg software, but otherwise they may be fine for work. I'd do a bit of research on them to see wht the net says.

You could have a look at ifixit for your iMac model and see if you dare open up the machine yourself, but I suspect it is a horribly cramped space inside and has too many fiddly bits or requirements for special screwdrivers.

Flash will often make the fans rev up, because it is a horrendous piece of software and a CPU hog.

There are apps and widgets that can show internal temperatures if you think heat is the issue.

That proves he exists. Even if it doesn't spell god and it is unlikely if there was a god that he would choose an eggplant to pass on his message.

All depictions of god are strikingly similar to humans; angry, jealous, caring, vengeful. God(s) exist because humans think they are special, when in reality they're just another animal that has barely moved on in thousands of years. I think there must be something in the brain wiring that causes even very intelligent people to believe in a god, even when there is zero proof of existence. I suspect that it is the same thing that leads to other superstitions.

http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Skinner/Pigeon/ what causes the pigeon's belief is probably the same that started off human's belief in a power. For instance: no rain for months; do a dance, kill an animal and it rains. Superstition tells them it was the dance and the slaughter that caused it to rain, not the change of season or wind etc, so they do it again in the next drought and so on.

What exactly was the point of this picture? After spending their morning making sure everyone was safe after an electrical fire they come back and find some wanker has slung a poster on the car. Or were you to chicken shit to have left it there so just ducked in the for the photo then fucked off in case they caught you and told your mother what you were doing thus risking your summer internship with Deloitte's which your father - whom you so desperately seek approval from - got for you and thus fulfilled his obligation to show the slightest interest in your life, other than of course when he goes to Pret at lunchtime and remembers back to that first holiday when you went on the ferry and he tried to make lunch but you wouldn't eat it because he didn't peel the cucumber or cut the cheese to thick or some equally trivial reason that to a spoilt 7 year old was reason enough to harbour a grudge for 15 years and build a wall so thick no amount of garbage could get through it. That's why you need to do all this. That's why you need to be as big, as loud, as brash as you can. Not for your own benefit. But just to make the your father hear you through that wall YOU built. Well guess what. He CAN hear you. He's been listening all this time. And it wasn't that he ignored you. It's that despite your feeling of being let down and misunderstood and marginalised, putting all that to one side, you know what it is? Oh now you want to know??

It's because you weren't saying anything. And no amount of FREE MEGA RAVES or 'real vibes will ever make up for that.

You could put this 6 on a credit card but it incurred a 1.50 fee. We talked about how it was nonsense then he let some other group of people in, one of whom had a glass vase.

We fucked it off then went to a beach hut by a park and flew kites with notes slagging off Love Saves The Day.

Tomb Raider was a very satisfying game.
Very pretty.


The colour pallete was all a bit muted though; a bit too much wood and rock. Whilst Uncharted clearly has its roots in the original Tomb Raider series, it is now a hard act to follow, graphically; plus the characters are more memorable in that series. Compared to the original TR game though, the reboot is far, far better. At least she runs forwards in a straight line these days.

The first one is very good, nice, slowly unravelling story, proper shit yourself stuff every so often, nice puzzles. The latter two look nice, but aren't much to write home about, just mostly run and gun.

The PC controls are GASH, horribly unresponsive.

I have just finished playing the rebooted Tomb Raider. It is alright, paced well, not entirely shooting based, but it isn't incredible by a long shot. A handful of puzzles, but they're not too puzzling.

Yeah Martyrs, starts out like a standard horror film but then has a women being very realistically beaten
repeatedly
for a bit too much screen time.

Then the money shot at the end.

I wasn't bored by the film (the two actresses start out quite hot) but the beating made me reach for the off button.



The beating part was long and boring and the skin removal not graphic in anyway. Hellraiser is more visceral than that and has parallels in the concept.

I lost my wallet a while ago. When I went to the bank to get some money over the counter at the bank I used a passport that had expired a few months before. Initially the bank clerk said she couldn't take it as it had expired. I was like 'well i'm not going anywhere' and she was like 'fair enough' or something and then gave me my money.

No real point to that story.

I was in Sainsburys on Cheltenham Road t'other day and the self checkout robot fucked up. I had to do the old-fashioned signature instead of PIN. I told the lady I couldn't remember my signature and then signed. She turned over my card and it was completely different. Not even similar. I laughed and said 'it's completely different'. She laughed and said 'don't worry'. I left with my shopping.

No real point to that story either.

Can we make this a new thread - pointless anecdotes.
