come on boffins, time to show off
(in b4 your mum)
I'm a pretty worldly, well read guy.
set me a test
Football and Futurama mainly
but there are large gaps in my knowledge even on this subject
If I'd put a tenth as much effor tinto studying as I did into these two pasttimes, I'd be one hell of a guy.
But I'm still pretty baffled by the 40k 6th ed cc rules.
40k has never interested me really. Despite the girl pulling benefits that georgiabeth always mentions.
I tend to stick to the specialist games - more fun and less time consuming. Blood Bowl and Mordheim 4 EVA!
but keeping track of the upgrades and weaponry when your 16/17 is a nightmare
State Boromirs favourite colour
I'm a big hit at parties
The Simpsons seasons 1-10
Pretty good with world geography
That's about it
Liverpool FC 1985-1997
That's about it.
or finger a girl
or climb things
The life and works of Lord Byron
1) The Waterboys
2) Guitar pedals
3) (Modern) UK Politics
4) Body building (I'm not buffed at all btw)
That's about it.
must be cheap and good
But I have a the Ibenez Super Stereo Chorus here:
I think The Cure used it at some point. At least, it sounds identical. Could be wrong. That's a good one. Sounds excellent with acoustics.
Squats (the exercise)
that's about it
have you tried much Williams Bros stuff? I'm a big fan, and it seems to be getting everywhere round here, which is nice. Sainsburys Cameron Toll were selling their birds and beers ale at 79p a bottle the other week and they do one called caeser augustus which is also lovely. Oh and one called harvest sun (i think), which is also also lovely...
March of the Penguins, 7 Giraffes and Joker IPA are my favourites. There's also one out that they've brewed to a recipe by a bloke who won a competition called Impale which is amazing!
Pretty sure I'd win any form of quiz involving the TV show Friends too, was obsessed with the boxset around two years ago.
Form an orderly queue, ladies.
Quite proud of my in depth football knowledge.
I don't know a lot about anything
lots of things
What fascinates me though is the amount of stuff that I probably don't even know that I know.
buffy the vampire slayer\six feet under and if I'm honest far too much about ugly betty
mixed martial arts
and managing active directory/generally windows domain administration
- British Rail, trains, and railway lines
- Chemical Engineering
Actors and Actresses
not much else, and i'd question most of those these days.
what an awful person
luckily there's a neverending amount of cinematic trash to continue watching forever
Classic ghost stories / horror
Badminton doubles tactics
Hours and hours of coaching when I was a teenager.
Star Wars (original trilogy only)
also do you know what a dianogah is? without looking it up
It is the creature that tries to eat Luke in the trash compactor on the Death Star during the middle of A New Hope.
75 quid for 3 films that are up to 35 years old seems very dear
its only £28 on Amazon on blu ray
i don't want it to be blue-ray
might be time to take the leap. People in Oxford all watch blu rays, you don't want them to hate you do you?
wait, does this mean mine does too? not that I'm gonna piss away £30 ON A FUCKING FILM but it's good to know. y'know in case someone says 'i've got a shitty old blue ray i don't watch anymore but I can't bring myself to throw it away' i can say "I'll take that. I'VE got a ps3"
Where the lead instruments are a pair of bass guitars.
such a vague topic
unless its in relation to mental health
Increasingly, intellectual property.
Both of these are mostly pretty fucking useless.
Which is why I know increasing amounts about intellectual property.
old evolutionary theories
obviously there are many people out there who know far far far more about these things that I ever will
Football since the late 90s
'90s - mid '00s rtw and haute couture
film production and broadcast engineering
film theory and criticism
french pharmaceutical skincare
life, work and times of ghostface killah
idk nail varnish
french and belgian
yeah just all nail varnish
Where roads go.
Stuff to do with planes (the flying type, not the woodwork tool).
Could give you most capitals though.
Geography >>>>>>>> Capital cities
geography is heavily related to population.
Capital cities/largest cities are, in the grand scheme, fuck all to do with geography really.
Ask me one about geomorphology or something.
the novels of Paul Auster
but not his best.
Unless you're talking about geology and stuff - no idea about that.
pretty sure though, you could plonk me on any island b road and i'd know where i was
Trade Unions / Labour Movement / Socialist Movement in Meiji - WW2 Japan.
Philippine War of Independence.
Indonesian occupation of East Timor.
Although on all three counts I only know what's been written in / translated into English. So I don't know if I could legitimately say I know "loads" about them.
My actual knowledge of anime / motorsport / k-pop is pretty poor to be honest. Sorry. Which is probably the main reason I'm able to enjoy them.
i'm not confident about my knowledge on anything
certain nerdy things to do with language, the Danish national football team.
doesn't really know all that much about the stuff they're saying they know about.
apart from my compadres in pussying out
