RE: Not Savy online

Who will you be using it to chat with?

Whatsapp is a chat app for mobile phones, although you can also use this on a PC/tablet.

RE: [VIDEO] The Batman

One observation, one question.

Observation: this looks and feels like the Arkham trilogy games

Question: why are they using a variation of the Imperial March at the end?

"I stopped following Graham Linehan on Twitter several years ago as his whole feed ended up as a constant row between him and seemingly everyone else on this subject and I had no idea who or what he was arguing for and still don't."

Graham is now gamekeeper turned poacher after he inevitably fell foul of the trans lobby and they started to have a go at him.  He still doesn't acknowledge the damage he did (neither does JK Rowling either) but he at least seems to recognise that something is wrong.

RE: Dave Chapelle - The Closer...

I cannot believe that anyone else hasn't watched this yet or seen the fallout from it, where we've had:

  • exec meetings stormed and the perpetrators sacked
  • Netflix issuing guidance to its employees about which meetings they can/should attend
  • a Netflix employee sacked for leaking confidential information on how much Netflix spent on this ($24m)
  • a walkout of Netflix employees where the organiser was fired (same person as above)
  • Netflix refusing to back down and keeping the programme on its platform

RE: Conservative MP murdered...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58935372

So what now beyond the charging and trial of a murderer?

Can anything be done?  Should anything be done?

I'll be honest, I don't know...

Conservative MP murdered...

Not too much appears to be known about the perpetrator but Conservative MP Sir David Amess was stabbed several times at his constituency surgery this afternoon.

"No interest, myself. I think I watched ~6 seasons of the original show before the formula became tiresome."

It got especially annoying across all of this franchise when they seemed to a database for every piece of forensic evidence.

"There was a clothes peg found at the scene?  Let's check the clothes peg database to not only find out instantly who made it but also where it was sold."

Dave Chapelle - The Closer...

Wow.

Watched this last night to see what the fuss was about after all the furore to try and get this cancelled and was stunned.

Watching this for the first time, you don't really know where it's going, but the story at the end is just the point he was trying to make from the start of this Special.

Not as much comedy as I expected, but it was a superb narrative about social media and the real world.

There was some long-term planning by Chapelle to get to this point.

"I guess the more America does this, the less far right Trump extremists are in the police force?"

That's a massive assumption on your part that is almost certainly partly based in reality, but not fully.

Still not a problem having 40% less police on the streets in a gun-centric culture, so long as those left think the right way.

RE: Most morally bankrupt takeover since the Glazers?

Past caring.

The events of the last year alone and the aborted Euro Super League where a pitiful fine was the only outcome of actually trying to destroy the foundation of national leagues - and they're still going to try and do it again.  All the fans of those clubs who were protesting at the time, no longer give a toss.

Everton have been unable to make inroads into the transfer market over the last summer because of Fair Play rules that the bigger clubsl just ignore.

Man City have also been taken over by a nation state and no one now really gives a s*** so long as Pep continues winning.

And the likes of Bury and Derby have been docked a significant amount of points for daring to overspend or go into administration during a pandemic.

If the Toon want to come in and spoil the party for the likes of the 'Big 6", then go for it...

RE: [VIDEO] Boris the not-a-spider

And yet there are also plenty of drivers and ex-drivers calling out employers for poor wages and working conditions.

As with everything, this is a combination of issues as we now know there was a shortage of drivers prior to the pandemic and Brexit...

I think you're right, but it hasn't been as big bang as this action appears to be.  I'm sure I've seen something about a care home gardener being sacked and maybe a care assistant or two but nowhere near those numbers.

Might just be that because it's small numbers and they're all isolated that we're not really noticing whereas if the a large-ish number of St Thomas' medical staff was fired then there would be a different reaction...

Aye, I looked at the list of non-UK heads of state and thought the same thing.  I noticed the Kremlin issued some sort of statement saying they had no intention of investigating...

I'm actually hoping it's down and stays off-line for at least a week or two, and Zuckerberg gets the BBM treatment that Blackberry did a few years ago...

I suspect this isn't true, but I so hope it is:

Pandora papers...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-58780561

So, thoughts on this?

Not much appears to have leaked out that is specific to the UK bar Tony/Cherie Blair and some Tory donor I've never heard of bar when his name came up last time.

Sure there's more to come though...

I'd heard it was a bit 'meh', which I've felt for a long time with Bond.  I'll still watch them, more from habit I guess, but not a must watch...
