Well if that's the case, ye don't kill trolls by ignoring them. Ye have to pity them. Trolls can't stand you feeling sorry fra them

Me personally, I just think the 2000AD artists from the late 70s to late 90s, that refused to use digital, computer based time saving techniques in their work, clearly hate comic book fans.

Star Trek Online is absolute dung. No doubt made by the type of person who skips the amazing, philosophical, bottle episodes of Trek because shit ain't 'sploding and nobody dies horribly.

My recent relapse in FTL addiction is mostly because it's the closest any game has come to being a Star Trek Captain Simulator.

I would argue that Best in Show is better than Spinal Tap, and I should be able to relate to Spinal Tap more because I was in a shite rock band. The only dogs I've ever owned have been idiots, and I don't get Dog Shows because smart dogs are boring and stupid ones are awesome.

The Jokes on Teresa May, the Tories don't stand a chance in my constituency. North Belfast will either be won by DUP Hard Right Christian Fundamentalists, or Sinn Fein ex-IRA Abstentionists.

As far as I'm aware, the DUP exist as a rubber-stamp for Conservative policy...

Well, yes, unless it goes against their religion.

In other news, I was shopping in my local supermarket and they still had loads of Easter Eggs up, all reduced to clear. Normally they pack them all away to be sold the following year, but these must've reached the end of their shelf life. Every single one was from Nestle. Full Shelves of Nestle Easter Eggs that nobody wanted to buy. It gave me an odd feeling. I think it was community pride?

Fast and Furious 8

It starts with Vin Diesel winning a race in an old Cuban Banger powered by laughing gas while going backwards and on fire. It gradually descends into glorious silliness after that.

The Rock is one charismatic sum'bitch it's gotta be said. He completely outshines the rest of the regular cast (not hard), and Charlize Theron is wonderful as always.

I like it.

I know that every Christmas, when I visit my parents, me and my dad can watch some Star Wars. From now until the end of time.

Doesn't have to be any good. I just enjoy the new tradition.

The early discworld novels aren't great. They're just satire on the fantasy genre, a pastiche, a buncha scenes taking the piss outta fantasy tropes poorly stiched together. Discworld doesn't get good until Pratchett establishes the main players and builds rules in which the stories take place. Once the satire moves from general fantasy satire to specific themes, it's trancendential. The novels with Granny Weatherwax and Sam Vimes (later Tiffany Aching) are some of the best books you will ever read.

Neil Gaiman stated it perfectly. Pratchett was a very angry man. Vimes represents his anger at the system, Weatherwax, his anger at humanity's failures in general.

I thought whatsisface with the white cloak was completely forgetable. They should have doubled down and just used Vader as the primary antagonist.

Metabarons.That was funting epic!

That's good to hear it rapidly (well less so these days) chargin' up my to read list.

It really is fantastic. The only detraction is the way it's framed. It's a narrator claiming these stories are the greatest ever told. You don't get to write your own reviews.

I don't like using the term under-rated, it makes it sound like I'm right and everyone else is wrong (although this is usually the case).

BUT

Last Action Hero is hugely under-rated. It's the perfect Sunday afternoon film.

So now it's illegal to take your own children out of school in term-time because it's inconvenient for schools? Get the f*ck.

Note to teachers: You work for society, not the other way around.

So certain people have to work for society but you don't?
