    Don't like it. It's not horrific but I won't be buying one.
  8. Without digressing into politics as there''s plenty of that in other threads, I''m wondering what on Earth has gone wrong with society in a cultural sense and how the hell we fix it?Since I was a kid, I have little doubt that despite the internet and smartphones etc, society has grown interminably more stupid generally, but reading the news last night I came across a story that Snap, the company that owns Snapchat, has had $1.3 BILLION wiped off it''s valuation because Kylie Jenner has tweeted she didn''t use it very much any more.Grown men (and women) in the finance world, wiping nearly one and a half BILLION dollars from the value of a company because a pseudo-celebrity, famous for absolutely nothing, with no discernible talent whatsoever aside from having a sister who made a sex tape with a semi-successful music producer, says that she doesn''t use their product very often anymore. WHAT THE F*** IS GOING ON?!?!?!I don''t get Snapchat, I don''t use Snapchat etc but I understand what it is and why it''s popular with kids. I also understand from the news they made some significant changes to the user interface 3 or 4 months ago which were badly received. That does not explain to me anything about how we''re wiping over a billion dollars off a company''s value based on some talentless moron''s tweet saying she doesn''t use it much. Picture the scene, it''s the mid-90''s and Michael Jordan says he doesn''t eat as many Weetabix as he used to, or Will Smith says he used to really like Apple computers but he''s moved to Windows based systems, or Sarah Michelle Gellar saying she has changed shampoo brands.... Can you comprehend that translating into those companies crashing on the stock market? I certainly can''t. It wouldn''t have happened. Maybe if it had emerged that Weetabix had been using Arsenic as a flavouring product or something, but not off the basis of one "celebrity" (and they were at least real celebrities back in those days) saying they no longer use a product.What has gone wrong here? There is a serious disconnect between logic, reason, and what now passes for reality.On top of the stock value nonsense, how the f*** has Kylie Jenner and her whole family made careers from being talentless nobodies with a sl**ty sister? How is that a job?Something is seriously wrong here.Rant over.

    Things to do/places to stay in Norfolk

    I was there in late April last year and they were there - Think you're right in that the Blakeney ones are there all year, but I believe the Horsey ones are also there all year, albeit maybe less frequent in summer - Tripadvisor reviews says there were seals there as of last week https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g1469072-d3970270-Reviews-Horsey_Beach-Horsey_Norfolk_East_Anglia_England.html

    Each to their own but Horsey is free, and you can watch the seals at your own leisure. Totally free, and a nice walk amongst the dunes. I did Blakeney as a kid, and I do remember enjoying it, but I really like Horsey

    Banham zoo is very good - decent size enclosures etc but might get a bit pricey with 4 kids in tow. A trip to Horsey to see the seals basking on the beach is well worth it and costs nothing but the petrol.

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Spyrou playing for Chesterfield tonight as a triallist. Potential loan on the cards presumably - Can't imagine we'd be letting him go.

    Netball World Cup

    Better things to do than aimlessly stand around in a field. Real sports don’t have a break for tea and sandwiches I’m afraid.

    Netball World Cup

    Cricket is a sedentary activity. It’s just blokes standing in a field for a week. If you can’t play it in drizzling rain it isn’t a sport. In fact, sandwich making is closer to a sport than cricket.

    At least it’s a real sport, unlike bloody cricket

    Second effort: Pukki graphic nicked off twitter - I don't have it, so can't contact the creator (Stuart Greaves) to let him know but if anyone knows him then please tell him to let me know on here if he objects to me using it in this way.

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Just in terms of agricultural production, we are nowhere near the limits of what the land can produce. We use land inefficiently is the major problem - cattle farming uses ridiculous amounts of resources to produce beef and accounts for approx 80% of deforestation in the Amazon (in Brazil). There is a grouse shooting moor in Scotland, owned by some Arab sheikh... reserved for the wealthy and privileged to pursue draconian bloodsports. It’s quite literally the size of Greater London. Only 13% of UK land is actually built on. Land capacity is not the issue, land use is. Globally, cash crops like coffee and cocoa are one of the major issues but again its land use issues. Totally agree with the the sentiment of your post though
