Next is well over rated
used to attract scores of screaming manic women to it's 6am opening every year. This may say more about the clientele from this part of the Shires rather than the shop itself though...
and seeing the hoardes of bargain hunters grouped up at the doors of Next in anticipation of the big sale. We all shoulda been tucked up in bed at that time of the night/morning.
was it pulse or vogue? Did you get stabbed? Halcyon days.
ie. they are good timewasters
This was criminally underrated.
In fairness "which" could have worked too but "that" is definitely the better use of grammar here.
If the fact they were under-rated was an incidental point of the sentence then which would of course be correct but given the fact that the over-ratedness of the things WAS the point of the sentence, that is clearly the better choice of word.
when 'that' is the correct grammatical construction happens LOADS.
", which" should only be used when a full stop could be placed where the comma is, anything else needs 'that'
either of these are correct.
(I don't know anything so thia according to my Penguin writers manual)
'things which are overrated' (should have a comma before 'which', though) means 'all things are overrated'
and it's an understandable mistake to make, but well done, you are obviously good at recognising grammatical errors.
Grammar and punctuation cunts.
"oooh, a hate it when an apostrophe is mis-used."
These people are worse than Bono.
So twattish as to be unbelievable really.
They're just words, Michael.
but i like to think the fact that i'm bilingual counts towards something in the language stakes at least.
i'm gonna make the godfather of my kid (when i have one) speak to him/her in ukranian (hear this, nestor?!).
i am starting a job doing translation shit soon and i seriously can't wait. </geek>
speak some now...please
es ist ein bisschen peinlich fuer mich...
it's mainly updating information/ensuring that the communication flow between both offices is still fluid and that any published material is updated and totally fluently translated.
it's entry level but building on my already amazing (ha) office skillz and maths n stuff. so like exchange rates and stuff like that is included. also probs get to go to international meetings and networking things w/ partners. i'm impossibly excited cos it's my first REAL job. i've worked non stop since i was 16 but have never really been that interested in what i do. wahey!
i realise i sound like a retard here. i'm actually not THAT dumb. promise.
after a 2 year absence.
Shirley the worst kind of Nazis?
homogenising the world one grocers's comma at a time.
the world would be a better place.
and whilst some might consider that a blessing, I don't want that to happen because I think you're all lovely.
and I don't think he gets enough credit for it, I for one thoroughly appreciate it and I think everyone should stop being so mean to him just because sometimes it goes a little bit funny coloured.
But i prefer clunge and ass. I'd gladly forego a tit or two for an "ass like pow!".
Some people revere tits and i just don't.
it wasn't a retaliation
your posts warrants a milder rebuke, I feel.
Go.. over.. there?
I thought I could check that out without "this"-ing myself.
Slow, pompous, only sporadically engaging, unbelievable characters, cliche-ridden wank inspiring devotion in people who want to be seen to be liking the "right" things.
"But it's like the televisual equivalent of a novel!"
No it's not. It's like CSI but for pseuds.
in that it's overblown, overlong, and with a hugh sense of it's own supposed "importance", like an issue-heavy play-for-today stretched out for hours.
It's cliche-ridden mostly in the sense that it's characters are complete archetypal ciphers acting in a cliched manner
and kiK said bad things about it before he watched it and changed his mind.
No Country For Old Men
The only thing I hate more than the brand itself is all the smug people who inexplicably love it.
It is delicious.
is some kind of wonderful, indie alternative.
IT'S JUST A LESS SUCCESFUL SUBWAY YOU BELLENDS.
^NOT this to slippers and dancing
Even better together in fact
and still like Nandos (though it's not amazing).
Agreed on the rest though.
It's just about tolerable if hopped up on goodballs.
goodness gracious, hopped up on goodballs.
the people who dislike dancing the most are the ones who are least good at it.
SHIT DANCERS!!! HAHAHAAHAHA!
People who go on about as 'the BEST thing evar lol' are awful.
infinite this'ing of the inbetweeners.
It's all ACADEMIC so who gives a shit you massive toilets
I'd rather have a big slab of cake please.
There is no cup involved.
The cup in cup cake is a lie.
Spot on on the other two though.
it's a good idea for a not-too-bad novel made into a better film.
and didn't absorb the actual point of the film, or perhaps missed the whole of the second half.
To be fair I have met a hell of a lot of dudes who fall into this category.
bit scared to go back in case the suck fairy has visited it at some point since ten years ago.
but lots of people are dumb.
And I massively approve.
FORM A MILITIA NOW BOYS WE'RE TAKING THIS ONE DOWN.
We Are The Pigs is much better though.
FPS games weren't ready for consoles then, poor control, poorly balanced in places.... it's a decent game but just because it was the first functional multiplayer console FPS doesn't mean you need to get your knickers in a nostalgic twist over it.
and more the fact that it is literally the only good FPS ever created. For anything.
Wolfenstein 3D, DOOM, Quake, Halo, and many others will all disagree with you.
And, of course, Perfect Dark, but I was including that with Goldeneye...
where's good to eat
I like fir trees, fairy lights and the turkey dinner and that's it.
but i like the holidays and seeing my family and getting drunk lots.
Finding a nice pub and, y'know, STAYING PUT is way, way better.
Anyway - Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Pointless.
I'd much rather drink the alcoholic beverage of my choice at the rate I want to drink it.
But yes - I agree with your central point.
When you're all sat down, chatting and drinking and the bar isn't too busy and someone says "right then, where next?" - I don't get it!
Alcoholic Ginger Beer is yummy though
and then post a miffling reply at the bottom.
Newcastle fans aka 'the greatest fans in the world'
not the same without that metallic taste. There *must* have been a thread on this at some point?
but then proceeded to pour it into a glass.
but I will mostly agree wit this, though Battlefield & Left 4 Dead are incredibly fun online :)
Metal gear solid
TheBeautifulOnes has questionable taste
and one of the best soundtracks *not the cds* on British television today, not to mention it's mindless fun.
But the content waivers between poorly scripted farce and a paid political broadcast on behalf of the middle-aged party.
How anyone enjoys listening to those three cunts talk is literally beyond me.
much rather spend two hours listening to music and fucking about on the internet. Cheers.
but most films are just awful. much larger shit:good ratio
At least with an indie song, album or band you can have a quick listen and walk away if it's not for you. If you've paid the money to sit in a cinema/buy a DVD and - like me - hate walking out, you're going to endure hell far more often than you find gold. Mostly you'll wallow in a sea of mediocrity though.
It's a simple fact that most pieces of art are neither staggeringly brilliant nor incredibly crap, just mediocre. This will apply to Hollywood and Non-Hollywood films equally. This belief there's a higher ratio in quality in independent cinema falls apart under any scrutiny whatsoever. Some films are great, some films are terrible, most are in between and that tends to be true regardless of origin.
As a general rule I prefer the off-centre Hollywood films to most independent films (not that I don't really like some independent cinema). I certainly wouldn't claim one is better than the other though. I just find it weird whene people fetishise the lower-budget end of things - the hit-to-miss ratio isn't worse but neither is it better.
But as long as nobody makes me sit through the Barbarian Invasions again then that's utterly fine with me.
Man in suit: I say, what do you think about those non-mainstream films? Worth a watch?
theguywithnousername: I strongly recommend people don't engage in such behaviour.
Man in suit: Righty-ho, I shall not engage in such behaviour. Thankyou kindly.
i.e. all of them.
You're just lucky I kind of agree with you.
