    Facebook full stop. Ditto Instagram, Snapchat, etc. Since my two daughters immediately switch off if I try to discuss the perils of social media with them, I instead sat them down in front of the "Nosedive" episode of Black Mirror. I was pleased that they appreciated the episode and the message about the negative influence social media can have on society. I was busy giving myself a pat on the back when I noticed that both girls, within 5 minutes of the episode ending, had turned their attention back to their phones....

    I am definitely not a fan of Facebook generally (see above) but I have to confess that I used one of those local FB groups to get a recommendation for a plumber and it was very helpful.

    I use my FB account to manage and communicate with the various disability groups I'm in - thankfully they're all "closed" or "secret" groups so the levels of "Click on this photograph to stop foreign con-trails giving our house prices cancer" are minimal. They still arrive and are normally deleted by moderators but I've started using it outside of these groups (to keep up to date with what's happening in/to Ramsgate) - FFS FB appears to have become an even worse cesspool than I remember...

    It has it's pluses and minuses. Because I don't live in Amersham at home and am useless at staying in touch I like it for finding what everybody is up to

    Definitely.

    I was once driving up the M1 and overtook a car with a massive sticker on the back window that read "Nutty Tart", accompanied by a "zany" cartoon character. The driver could not have been more the epitome of the term "speccy twảt" if she tried. Absolute spoon who most likely had the social skills of Gareth Keenan from the Office on valium.

    People who believe all they read on social media and don't understand how opinion can be very professionally and effectively influenced (ie 90% of the users...inc Mrs TuT). Zaha is definitely a diver though.....

    Alright, I’ll bite - why?

    And you have previous here, with your scandalous attacks on Van the Man.

    Harmonica.

    The names a joke right? There’s nothing remotely harmonious about the noise it produces.

    It’s the American version of a bagpipe.

    Pizza that if you put directly on the oven shelf like any normal pizza, melts through the shelf and turns out needs to be on a baking tray.

    I don't know about Clive's reason/s, but I always thought she had a very big head. Judge for yourselves...

    My self righteous neighbour. Complained like bu55ery in the summer when we had a bit of work done because the builders worked after 1pm on a Saturday with power tools. I went round and apologised and he gave me a bit of a lecture on how I should employ people who know the law.
    Cue this morning and his builders start work at 7.30, (now I couldn't give a t*ss because I was dropping my daughter at work at 7). Haven't seen the neighbour yet but when I do I'll repeat the same line back to him.

    I hate that I've bought an expensive coffee machine that grinds coffee beans - and I can't use it because the caffeine gives me a horrible feeling akin to extreme stage fright in the pit of my stomach within about half an hour.

    Our canteen lady at the office who works at the weekends for Costa told me all you need is normal instant coffee and a milk steamer to get perfect coffee that tastes exactly like you get at Costa. Might be an option.

    Costa coffee is bloody awful though. Since getting a fairly cheap bean to cup machine I pretty much avoid high st. coffee if I can help it.

    There's some good low caffeine beans out there you can try. Just to a search on amazon.
    Might not be the caffeine though as you get that with instant as well, it might be the oils produced during the grinding process which are causing the issues in which case you're buggered. I'd certainly try a few different varieties, maybe swap from an italian bean to a south american for example.

    I hate the fact Ive now go to go and make me a coffee.

    Caffeine free beans? I didn't know that was an option.

    TBF I hadn't really thought about it - I assumed the caffeine was taken out after grinding.

    Caffeine free beans do exist but its a bugger to wash all the tomato sauce off.

    Religion.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46851723

    Leave this set of ideas and you must be killed. If that's what god wants, he's a vile, judgemental narcissist.

    They are all cults, just that some date back to ages of ignorance and have generations of indoctrination in their pocket. They deserve no respect. Just the fact there's multiple, incompatible religions shows how farcical it is.

    Suppose the organisers didn't lie though when they said it was the greatest story ever told.

    Blokes who wear lots of scent. I’m not especially keen on women doing this either but men’s scent seems especially rank.

    Bloke stinking out the train carriage today. I moved as far as I could but he was doing an impression of a bull elephant in musth, had that elephant been a big fan of Superdrug.

    Here’s the the thing, if you wash every, even most, days you won’t smell badly. You don’t need to stink the place up.

    Sadly some people believe the lynx adverts are real. No personality. No intelligence. But if you slap some really strong smelling stuff on, attractive women will want to sleep with you.
