    The bean burger is good.

    Other than that you’re just paying for something you could easily make at home and you have to set the table yourself.

    I thought it was pretty good, but my bun wasn't toasted and the chips were soggy. Underseasoned too.

    I don't think Nando's is worth it.

    Some people are completely astonished when I tell them I’ve never been to a Nando’s. It’s the same reaction I get when I say I’ve never seen Star Wars.

    Ha! No need to go.

    As I say, I'm mystified as to why it has such a cult-like status.

    My guesses are that either:

    a) Nando's fans have a low threshold for quality food
    b) They've never had a genuinely decent burger before

    As a fellow 6'5-er, I get puzzled by the regular 'joke' question 'What's the weather like up there?' Yeah, hilarious.

    The thing that really annoys me though is gigs (remember them?!) when out of courtesy I often get there early (to catch the support) and try to stand somewhere not blocking the view of people behind me who are already there. Then later on, someone who gets to their position after me and stands behind me asks me to move so they can see. 'F*** off! You chose to stand behind me, you move' is what I think, although I politely refuse to budge. Some of them get really lairy about it - usually the ones who spend the whole gig talking/shouting and/or holding their phones up to get a few minutes of wobbly, terribly sounding footage to post on Youtube.

    It's quite simple. Don't stand behind me, do shut up and why not try and enjoy the gig whilst you're there?

    I would agree with this, I don’t eat meat now so I never eat or order from there, but it always used to puzzle me when I went there. It’s essentially fast food, and not that far removed from Macdonalds or KFC but about three times the price. It always seemed odd to go in there as a couple, have to order it yourself and still easily spend £30/£40 on basically chicken and chips.

    People who feed the pigeons and ducks in public parks.

    If there are signs that specifically say "do not feed the birds", can you guess what that means? That's right. Don't feed the effing birds.

    Because of some silly woman who was seemingly unable to read, my chill time in the sunshine today was rudely interrupted by a flock of ducks and pigeons quacking and flapping in great hordes over endless chunks of bread.

    Trail of thought? Gone. Concentration on my book? Disappeared.

    Read. The. Sign.

    You aren't exempt you know.

    Individuals who say they are this and that but then advertise a product which would seem to be against what they say they stand for. Martin Freeman and Vodafone for example. And Sandi Toksvig prattling on about exclusive cocoa chocolate. Now they may be grown sustainably but there is no doubt the love of chocolate and other ingredients is not great for climax vegetation where the crops are being grown. We have had other notable hypocrites in the past from politicians to all manner of so called celebrities such as Sting or the Swedish foreign minister telling folks not to travel overseas recently but happily flies off to the Canary Islands.

    If you are advertising some rubbish try and show some integrity by not choosing something that completely contravenes your alleged principles.

    Sorry, there's another I forgot.

    The neglect of the good old comma.

    Several times over the past week, I've been reading articles online only to have to to re-read a paragraph or collection of sentences because I was unable to comprehend what the writer was trying to communicate.

    In each of these cases, I realised I was unable to understand because the writer had forgotten to include a comma in the relevant area.

    Commas are helpful and they show the reader where there's a break in a sentence.

    They also save lives.

    An example:

    "Let's eat grandma"

    "Let's eat, grandma"

    Point made.

    Celebrities writing children's books. Don't you thick ****s have enough money already without making huge dents in another market where normal people try to make a living?

    One that also pisses me off is celebrities writing parenting books, like they’re the first people on earth to give birth and have children.

    You can feed them a bit - they can digest it OK - but the problem is they can get inundated with it. Then they feel full and don’t get a varied diet. Also the uneaten bread can go mouldy, which is not ideal when the ducks subsequently eat it.

    I’m surprised they don’t buy a special one just for when you visit. Along the lines of ‘Fark off out of my kitchen you miserable barsteward’ might do it. I should of my wife’s friends displayed a DIY version when I was ‘invited’ in for a coffee when dropping my wife off there. Needless to say, I was delighted to show sufficient politeness to take the sign as an outright instruction.

    That explains why they all come out to groove about in the park...the mould on the uneaten bread has turned into ergot before they eat it.

    Bread has very little nutritional value for birds,just fills them up.

    Tbh I avoid bread as it just makes me bloated too - maybe I was a duck in a previous life.

    The film Greta. For nearly an hour I was quite enjoying the build of the story then they absolutely threw it under the bus with one of the most ridiculous scenes imaginable, which instantly brought me back to reality.

    Don't watch this film.

    The thing is that the white women try to make themselves look like black women as far as I can see.

    They put curlers in their hair, then they have injections in their lips to make their lips bigger and then injections in their arse to make that bigger and then to finish off, they go under the sunlamp to try to get brown.

    I suppose imitation is the best form of flattery.

    Agree entirely with this. I was persuaded to go once by my kids. It wasn't dire, it was just slightly fancier KFC served (slowly) on a plate at about 5 times the cost. Absolutely nothing special about it at all.

    The fact they're giving 50% discount off to NHS staff at the moment (and almost certainly still making a handsome profit), shows you what their margins must be.

    What was this ridiculous scene??

    Well for those who intend to watch it I don't want to spoil anything so spoilers needed.

    So the plot is that a young girl hands back some lost property to an older woman who then becomes overly infatuated with the girl, to the point where she becomes a stalker and then some. The Police eventually get involved and the situation starts to get under control. At this point you wonder what the older woman can do next to infiltrate her life, the younger woman is already absolutely terrified. So far so good. Reminded me very much of the film Misery, but this time set in New York with much more space to move the story into.

    The girls friend then tells her it would be a good idea to visit the older woman in church, (where she goes every Friday to mourn her ex husband), to apologise, say it's all her fault and she's going away for a short while. She does this.
    Nobody with half a brain would even contemplate doing this in real life or in a film IMO, there were so many different avenues that this could have gone up a notch but the way they did it was p*ss poor and lazy, again that's just my opinion. The whole thing was brutally engineered to move it to the next level of dangerous, but so badly done that I simply lost the will to live. Honestly, it was like a child had written that small part of the film.

    After that I got the laptop out and chewed on some Easter eggs while Mrs D kept watching. It got much more ridiculous.

    That would have been more believable, even if he stayed upright whilst scoring.

    The Championship and fans that say it’s brilliant.

    It’s not, it’s awful.
    If you stay in it too long you go bust.
    Low income no money
    Bigger teams take your best players
    The play offs are all about Wembley recouping some money from gullible desperate fans
    The referees are appalling
    Poor attendances
    The media ignores you
    The league table is always too small to read in the press
    You have to play against Rotherham normally on a Tuesday night
    Crap football
    Crap stadiums

    The arguments for being in it are

    Real opposing fans
    Don’t have to put up with big six plastic armchair types
    No VAR
    Don’t have to play Man C

    Feel free to add

    Sorry just trying to waste some time before the Boro game

    Those HiHi TV adds.

    Awful acting, and a story that makes no sense at all. The guy calls his boss to ask him to come out, only for his boss to tell him via video there is a wire missing and he should just extend it.

    Who on earth is this guy that he doesn’t know that?
