    I can understand kids getting into rubbish stuff. They just want to play what their friends are playing.

    My 8 year old is obsessed with Harry Potter, despite me clearly explaining that the whole franchise is problematic and that the gender politics of the author are abhorrent and transphobic. I've punished her by calling her TERF instead of by her name ever since.

    What I don't get is grown adults who are obsessed with anime and K Pop. Well, I do get it. They are just idiots trying to fit into sub cultures to be cool within their weird social circle, but I don't truly believe taking **** pop music and singing it in Korean makes it any better.

    Why my colleague cannot prepare a rudimentary invoice.
    His latest attempt,his second,makes Baldrick's novel seem like War and Peace and the arithmetic is incorrect!
    Why did I expect anything different from a man who has a bullet collection.

    Why does a take-away coffee drunk through the little hole in the lid, not taste like coffee?

    Or have I got covid?

    South Africans calling traffic lights a robot.
    It’s not as if they move or anything.

    Standard portion sizes of America’s fast food restaurants. No wonder half the population are morbidly obese and diabetic.

    Why swimming is not allowed during a covid pandemic when chlorine will kill every bug on your body.

    Watching women drivers reverse/parallel park.

    Why still, everything has to be described as cloud based, likes it’s some incredible, special thing.

    My current bugbear are the companies we're currently working with that promote "serverless cloud printing solutions". Then when you start to setup to test you discover they don't run without their app running on one of your servers if you want to authenticate users.

    Not sure using a cloud as base is a good idea. I expect it's a bit squidgy. I'd use a compacted layer of hardcore and maybe some concrete.

    That EE advert with Rita Ora doing some sort of virtual reality thing on an IPhone. She looks like a player from FIFA 97, is it meant to be impressive?

    Fun fact, she makes more money from adverts than music.

    I can believe that . Because I don't have much spare time ATM I checked her out
    on the chart archives website. Rita has spent a long time on the charts in the last
    10 years ,2 albums and some singles. Although apart from the first week or 2 of release
    she mainly occupies position 47 to 74 on the charts .
    The question is why is she always in the newspapers?

    That's nothing new. My BFF's family was 'close to' the late, great Leonard Rossiter. He always claimed (and was extremely bitter about) the fact that he made more money from three vermouth ads than he did through his entire 'other' acting career.

    Also Lily Allen has been extremely frank about how little money she actually gets from producing music.

    There's nothing like a good old fashioned game of quidditch on a Sunday morning you muggle.

    I remember my Mum buying said beverage in the Supermarket. Never tasted the same. Couldn't obviously get thr Ushers spit ratio down properly.
     
  20. Too orangey for crows though.
    I adored it.

    How racist.
    You'll never understand the feeling of thick wood between your legs while caressing your quaffle.

    Good Lord, top notch memory recall. Bet you can't remember why you were in the kitchen last time though.
