    It may be my ant-Kane bias but he seems to do it every time he talks. Speaking to ref. Coming off at fulltime. Most players do it talking to each other over free kick or corner. Kane seems to have to do it all the time as he is too thick to remember otherwise. Reckon he does it with the wife as well. (His not mine).

    I presume they are discussing their PINs.

    Or is it PIN numbers?

    Doing that when speaking to the wife might just spice things up.

    Provided she goes for a covert mumbler.

    Tangentially, on the topic of mumblers, I’ve just realised that Kelly Cates is Kenny Dalglish’s daughter.

    She’s no mumbler.

    Excellent & very composed.

    But a much loved one.

    Maybe that’s the crucial point that Harry is forever making during his Secret Squirrel conversations.

    James Arthur.

    Not only is he ruining what is a really brilliant song from The Greatest Showman, he's now butchering the classic ballad The Power Of Love.

    Hangovers and getting old.

    As a kid I could sink 7 pints go to bed at 2am and get up at 8 the next day for a lecture no problems.

    Last night I played darts had only 4 pints and a curry and was in bed by 10:30. By head is still banging today and it's knocking on 3pm.

    I'm seriously considering giving up the booze. I can't seem to get merry enough to enjoy it and the after-effects are abysmal.

    If you want to know what it is like to be 10 years older then wake up with a hangover

    Amen to that.

    I actively avoid going out these days unless it's a big all dayer for an away game - if you drink all day, the day after is never that bad. Just can't handle the hangover from a night in the pub anymore.

    Amazon not appearing to know consumer law:

    Here's a copy of the chat transcript you requested:

    Initial Question: Hello. Bluetooth has stopped working on this 2 month old watch. I have tried re-pairing, a soft reset and a hard reset. I've also tried to pair with other phones. The issue appears to be the watches bluetooth.

    I recently had cause to replace an item bought for my brother from Amazon, having selected the wrong size. I fully expected them to tell me to return it but they said that he could keep it, and that they would also refund me so that I could purchase the correct size for him.

    So not all bad. I gave them good feedback.

    Advance warning: this post might put you off your dinner. The Januhairy thread in this section brought back memories of an horrific 'thing' I came across a few days ago...

    The apparent current trend for shaving off pubic hair.

    I gather the practice has been influenced by porn in order to show more and make genitals look bigger. I have to confess I made the mistake of channel surfing one bored evening over Christmas and stumbled upon Naked Attraction on C4. I was gobsmacked! I cannot unsee the gross imagery I saw in the few minutes I watched, transfixed whilst open-mouthed with with abject horror and whilst numerous questions sprang to mind. Where do they get the 'contestants' from? Are they representative of real people? Moreover, why does anyone think it is vaguely attractive to shave their pubes off? It looks revolting in both sexes, never mind making me wonder why anyone (apart from paedophiles that is) would be attracted to genitals that resemble those of young children. Urgh :eek::eek::eek:

    People who ask basic obvious questions on social media sites when they could use the very same devices they asked the question from to actually more easily look up the info themselves.

    I'm looking at you Facebook groups.

    "Fun" and "quirky" family car stickers like this:


    **** off you self-promoting, egotistical attention seeker.

    Don't try and force your self-styled, fake perfect family image on everyone else because no one cares about you, your family or your dull hobbies.

    Why is the weedy husband leaving his weedy wife to carry all the luggage ?

    My family, which is similar to this one in the fact there is a husband, a wife, a daughter, a son and a dog, looks nothing like this on a family day out. The wife and I won't be talking due to something I may or may not have done. The son will be grumpy about having to be out at all and will be taking it out on his sister who is probably crying because her brother has hit her but fails to mention that she has been winding him up for the last hour. The dog would be happy though

    This sounds exactly like a family day out for me, except we don't have a dog, so there is no one happy.

    Either it's un PC and that's shopping not luggage.
    Or it's incredibly PC. There are 3 life partners. All are non binary gender, the shopping carrier was born a man and the third life partner is a little person. The shopping contains organic Quinoa from Waitrose. They have one adopted child. The cat was obtained from a rescue centre and fed on a strictly vegan diet which is why it's farted. This sticker is not made of plastic and can only be applied to electric vehicles.

    "Princess on board" stickers.

    Grow the **** up.

    You know that the sticker refers to the driver, not the kids don't you? I find it useful as I then know it's a car to leave extra space and avoid going anywhere near in car parks.

    I certainly do as we had a young lady, (no kids), where I work turn up with one on the back of her car. If she's anything to go by then "Prima f***ing Donna who would rather play on her phone than do actual work on board" would have been more apt.

    At the start of last summer we had a client turn up on site to meet with one of the lab managers. This visit was obviously interfering with her sun bathing plans as she had turned up in beach clothing that only just covered her bikini. Not only that, she had her baby with her, which she expected the security guard to look after for her. He gave he short shrift so she put her little princess back in the car, with the windows open of course, for the 20 minutes that she was in the meeting.

    Why the fck bring a baby?
    Why the fck expect a complete stranger to look after it?
    Why the fck put in the car? Even if the car did remain the shade?

    I think you can call social services if they leave an infant unattended for any length of time above a very nominal amount, especially in hot weather in a car.

    This reminds me of the enquiry into the the phone hacking scandal when halfway through it that Louise Munch woman stood up, proclaimed she had kids to collect and buggered off. Think she was leading it at the time.

    Glad she's fecked off to the states.

    One of my friend's had to interview her for a profile in some heavyweight political rag (The New Statesman?). She turned up "tardy" and "well refreshed" and immediatly gave my friend a crib-sheet of all of the points about her version of twitter ("MenschN") that "had to be in the piece" when my friend declined Mensch showed her acute knowledge of Anglo-Saxon verbs in the active voice and staggered off. A true servant of the people. Isn't she really, ahem, "out there" at the moment?

    She was. I left that piece of information out of the tale. I felt shoehorning that in would risk me being labelled a Kelso.

    Absolute madness. You wouldn't believe how many infants die each year in Houston after being left in the car. It's generally 40 degrees and up in the summer, so you can only imagine how quickly temps will rise well above that in a car without the AC running. Disgusting level of neglect.
