    That were gap between the top of my tie and my collar.
    I can never get it to fit snugly and can almost see the top button.

    It's not just me either. Most TV pundits are the same although Tierry Henry has it nailed.


    Ties that arenít worn reaching to at least the belt line of the trousers. Effing hate seeing people with ties stopping above their belly button

    Dunno if this has been mentioned on this particular thread but I get well pissed off with the fact that the powers that be deem it unacceptable for Hibs and Celtic to both play in home kits when facing each other.
    Just watched highlights of Killie v Ross County (both in blue but clearly not a clash in terms of shade and design) and there seemed no problem at all.

    Aye. West Brom V Leicester was fine at the weekend. Leicester played in all blue whilst WBA played in blue and white stripes with a solid blue back panel.

    Worked fine.

    Also the dross that is given celebrity status (and with it credibility) these days. F****** TOWIE, Made in Chelsea etc...

    Utter, utter dross, yet the 'stars' get to kick about as though they're important.

    Also, the increasing evidence of stupidity being a virtue to be rewarded. There's a girl who's constantly on viral videos with her boyfriend showing her up as an idiot.

    They get loads of views and will get a fair whack of cash for it, and I doubt it's even real, but imagine making your money for being a thick ****?!

    Argos stores.

    Iíve just been up there buying some coat hooks and I get the feeling the whole process was a lot more complicated than it shouldíve been.
    First, you go to one screen and search for your product. Secondly, you are asked to think of a memorable word. Thirdly, you find another screen where you pay...after telling it your memorable word. Thirdly, you have to find the correct type of till where you hand over your receipt and wait on your product.

    All this and I didnít even get to see the bloody thing before I purchased it. Turns out itís cheap crap and will probably last about a week before it breaks ☹️

    Pete, don't think this would be much out of place on the "Does Anyone On Here Actually Sell Pegs" thread.

    If I remember correctly Graham Norton made a joke about housemates waking up to the smell of bacon..........Jade had farted. After this I think the legal people got involved and lo and behold the next week Mr Norton was urging the nation to make Jade the winner. The power of tv?

    Rant Time!!!

    My local shop sells Stephens the bakers hot/cold filled rolls, pies, bridies and cakes etc. As we know they are all very nice, anyway my Mrs is recovering from an emergency C section so is pretty restricted with what she can do just now and I have to do pretty much everything for her while she recovers, which I don't mind as she had a nightmare of a labour. I said to her I'd nip to the local shop for her and get her some lunch if she wanted something. She asked for two egg mayo rolls and I was going to get myself some lentil soup as I've got an absolute howler of a cold just now and fancied some good old lentil to help shift the cold.

    So I order everything with the wifey at the counter which is as follows:

    2 x White Egg Mayo rolls

    2 x Lenti soup (one cup is never enough and two roughly equate to the size of a normal can)

    4 x brown rolls - 2 for me today and 2 for tomorrow's bacon rolls at breakfast.

    All this comes to a grand total of £9.86!! I mean come on. It was £4.98 for the two egg mayo rolls alone! Thats scandalous and the Mrs couldn't believe it! I wont be back, thats for sure. For a local shop the prices are a disgrace

    That sounds awfully similar to my local shop. Is it a Nisa one?

    This is a parasocial relationship - where one side of the relationship displays qualities of a typical two way relationship such as emotion, time and trust while the other has no knowledge of their existence.

    Itís a very deliberate and carefully managed technique in PR for example where the most common examples are, as you point out, the relationship between celebrities and the public and also the relationship between a sports team and itís fans!

    It's odd when you bump into a 'celeb'. Because you feel you 'know' them, you subconsciously think that they should know you too. I remember years ago I walked past Onion in Hanover Street and said 'Hi John'. To his credit (and to my delight at the time) he said 'Hi' back.
    It was kinda like seeing a mate in the street if you know what I mean.

    These ****ing "time traveller" videos when apparently someone from XX years in the future is filmed in present day making spooky predictions about the world XX years from now.

    I mean, really?? I know a lot of social media stretches credibility but **** off with that *****.
