  1. Saw an idiot like this earlier today, only made even more idiotic by the unicycle he was riding through the two centre...
  2. I've just been having real trouble with my amazon fire stick. Since I've had it, it's let me watch my5 without signing into it which is good cos I don't have an account with that. Suddenly today for some reason it insisted I had to sign in. So I create an account and enter the code to pair it with my firestick but nothing happens. Searched all over the Internet but couldn't find a solution. I mentioned it to a family member and they gave me their sign in details. I tried their account and it worked straight away. I have no idea what I did differently. I can only assume that it was because my relative already had an account to sign into when I entered the pairing code whereas when I tried to do it I created an account from scratch before entering the code. Very strange but it seems to be working so I'll just leave in signed in with their details. I've since deleted the my5 account I created cos I hate having my details registered with so many different services. I guess this was a bit of a rant but it's about TV and I'm just venting a bit of frustration.
  3. I thought flat caps had become a bit of a fashion thing a few years back when Peaky Blinders was at its height of popularity. I remember seeing a lot of young people wearing them around that time.
  4. I'd forgotten how powerful that last episode of Derry Girls is. Fabulous.
  5. I watched the first episode of 'Our Flag Means Death' last night. Not sure what I really thought of it, had a couple of little chuckles. I'll stick with it and see how it develops.
  6. I've already found the short story collection in a charity shop. I've got 6 of the novels still to find but plenty of time to do so. I started the Kingsbridge Quartet tonight with 'The Evening and the Morning'. I read the first two chapters. Wow! It was exciting! I think I may get through the Ken Folletts I'm planning on reading a lot quicker than I initially thought.
  7. The plot thickens. The Masters starts today and former UK champion, current world #9 and Chinese #1, Zhao Xintong will not be playing in the tournament as he is now under investigation. He has been replaced by the Iranian world #18, Hossein Vafaei. Always liked Vafaei, very happy he's getting a shot at snooker's second biggest title.
  8. You just finished your post with 'just saying', just saying.
  9. Well there we go, after almost exactly a year of reading, last night I finished the 22 novels of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series. There was not a dull one among them. Excitement and entertainment from page one to page last. I believe in September a 23rd is being released so can't wait for that one!
  10. Beverley Town 3-0 Shirebrook Att: 231 Bev have won 4 on the bounce now and moved up to 10th in the table. Shirebrook are the poorest team I've seen so far this year; absolutely non existent defensive line, ball over the top from our own defence so easy to break through it everytime. No pace and no strength from any Shirebrook player. We took all our starting strikers off just after halftime and still managed to score two more. Don't know how it was only 3 quite frankly.
  11. Certainly makes it better. (I know that was a rubbish joke and I'm ashamed of myself but it just felt necessary.)
  12. I didn't know about the cats, sounds like something fun to do. It sounds similar to the fishes walk in Hull where you can get a map and find all the fishes on the pavements around the old town.
  13. Quite right, there's been a number of non league teams in Hull over the years and they've all spent their existance moving from ground to ground, year on year in the wider area, not necessarily within the city itself.
  14. Nah, we've gone posh in Hull these days, got them on dvd which is why it was such a great purchase!
  15. Well in terms of mentality, geese tend to be very mature and sophisticated and there aren't many of those types on here so we better stick to the more immature human years.
  16. Yeah that's a great thought. A case of the animal drawn appears in that area in whichever month is marked next to the picture. In many ways that would explain the hunter-gatherer nature, in that they moved from place to place because they knew certain species would be in certain places at certain times of the year. And they'd draw the pictures in the caves so they wouldn't be destroyed by the weather over the years.
  17. Are we talking mental age or physical? cos they would be two very different lists.
  18. Correct, it's a very exciting development in our understanding of human time keeping. This discovery means humans were tracking dates and time millenia before we thought they were. Essentially it seems that they were drawing particular species of animal and keeping a tally of months that corresponded with the animals' gestation period in correspondence to lunar cycles. By doing this they could, firstly keep track of the passing days and months and use it as a calendar similar to what we know these days, but also to keep track of when certain species would be pregnant and so not hunt those ones and risk depleting the species population. This shows an incredible knowledge of zoology and more widely biology that we never thought our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have. It's quite simply fascinating and I must say prehistory is not something I tend to get too excited about.
  19. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-64162799 This is a very interesting read. Academics, with the help of a random bloke from London, think they have discovered the reasons for hunter-gatherers painting on cave walls.
  20. I'm having another watch through of Derry Girls. Got to be one of my favourite series ever. Forgot how immense the soundtrack is as well!
  21. Amazing how quickly football changes isn't it? For years Everton were a stable, top half Premier League side always pushing for Europe. Now they are year on year flirting with relegation while Fulham, Brentford and Brighton push for Europe. Great season so far!
  22. Bev and Selby play in the Northern Counties East League Division 1. I'll have you know that's all of Yorkshire and parts of Nottinghamshire! The 250 or so fans we get down every week put Ultras to shame!
  23. Can't be as toxic as the atmosphere at Beverley Town v Selby Town. The tutting from the old boys! Oh my!
