What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: A gene spliced man/dog creation of Stalin's scientists from the 1920s. By infiltrating Walt Disney's studios he gained access to every level of America's Hollywood obsessed society, eventually escaping with the plans for coconuts. Feb 9, 2019 1:21:07 GMT
walkingdecay: Gene spliced man/dogs aren't very bright which is why you don't see more of them. Feb 9, 2019 1:24:55 GMT
robmc: Ah. Thank you, I can move on now, I always felt a little suspicious of Goofy. Pluto on the other hand is undoubtedly all dog. Feb 9, 2019 10:39:14 GMT
ocarolan: W.t.f. has happened to Youtube? B-| Doesn't display right on Firefox and can only watch vids with rubbish Real Player -not worth the effort! Just fine on IE. Feb 9, 2019 12:52:50 GMT *
walkingdecay: And another thing. How come the people of Villeneuve didn't notice Beast's enormous châteaux and estate just down the road from them? Feb 10, 2019 2:40:56 GMT *
ocarolan: Dunno 'bout that Pete, but have solved my Youtube display prob - somehow it had switched into Mobile view rather than Desktop. Norman Jervis has been exhumed. Feb 10, 2019 14:18:48 GMT
walkingdecay: Excellent. Though oddly enough I thought I'd put up a shout suggesting you rescale or reinstall Firefox and now I can't see it. Must have failed to hit enter. Actually this whole weekend's been like that. Feb 11, 2019 7:36:53 GMT
martinrowe: I thought I saw that post Pete! Feb 11, 2019 7:51:58 GMT
walkingdecay: Thanks Martin. I'm not that mad then. Feb 11, 2019 16:43:30 GMT
walkingdecay: I see Trump's calling for more investment in artificial intelligence. This from a man who could be outsmarted by an abacus. Feb 12, 2019 0:57:07 GMT
raggy: I use Newtones on my Brook Feb 12, 2019 20:51:50 GMT
walkingdecay: As someone who's mainly a flatpicker, I find Newtones a bit lacking in tension and bite. If we'd strung our bows with Newtones at Agincourt we would have lost. Feb 13, 2019 11:17:41 GMT
scorpiodog: Yeah, the acoustic properties of a 120lb warbow would never have cut through against the French Hurdy Gurdy. God For Harry, Elixir and St George! Feb 13, 2019 11:24:12 GMT
walkingdecay: Stirring words, old chum. Yes, we should remember that the Hurdy Gurdy was a formidable weapon in itself. Had Napoleon's batteries of upscaled instruments been ready for deployment at Waterloo, we British would now be stubbornly refusing to speak French. Feb 13, 2019 12:45:00 GMT
scorpiodog: But would they have been enough to counter the late afternoon serenade by Blucher's Flugelhorn battery? Not to mention the blockade by the Royal Navy's fleet of concertinas. I think we would have been safe by 1815. Feb 13, 2019 17:08:05 GMT
scorpiodog: We would have done OK in the Hundred Years War but for that flighty Jeanne D'Arc's choir of celestial angels. Burning's too good for her! Feb 13, 2019 17:09:25 GMT
martinrowe: Aaah, the sound of that good old Bulldog spirit (just to change the direction a little bit) Feb 13, 2019 18:12:37 GMT
curmudgeon: Today, I am mostly eating ...taramasalata! Feb 16, 2019 9:30:05 GMT
walkingdecay: So impressed by the students of my acquaintance who took part in the climate change strike yesterday. Informed, articulate, passionate. Fair brought a tear to my eye, they did. Feb 16, 2019 10:53:46 GMT
robmc: I watched some of the students on channel four news, one girl in particular was a superb orator, so poised - unbelievable. Anyway, I'm pretty sure the Beast supplies the water to Villeneuve which is why they're all a little 'dopey' and unobservant... Feb 17, 2019 20:43:41 GMT
