  1. With the way CGI is advancing, it won't be long before they could do a new Connery Bond movie with it being impossible to tell it's a computer character.
  2. He's 43. Only slightly older than Brosnan and Dalton when they took on the role. And he's 3 years younger than Moore who did 7 movies. But I agree with you, they should be going with somebody younger and somebody more unknown. Hardy will only do 1 or 2 as he's too famous and will want to move on and do other things. The same problems go for Idris Elba, too old and too famous.
  3. I was messaging a girl on an online dating site, we agreed to meet up on a Saturday. I gave her my phone number so she could text me on the day the time she wanted to meet. Heard nothing at all and assumed I was being stood up. I was really glad I gave her my number as I hadn't had to leave the house. Later that day I went online and saw she was on MSN messenger (that's how long ago this was!). Both of us were confused, I wanted to know why she hadn't text me, she wanted to know why I hadn't replied! And then it dawned on me. For some really really stupid reason, the number unde
  4. The cardboard was fine with it until the paper bags started laughing at them.
  5. They can't even fill their "stadium" with cardboard
  6. Twitter has some vile and horrible people on it. But you choose who you follow, if you're seeing lots of horrible stuff, you're following the wrong people. Facebook is more dangerous as it's your friends, family and work colleagues that are being horrible. It's far harder to cut them out of your life.
  7. And very dapper you looked too!
  8. Avon and Somerset police are said to be baffled by the number of twins that have suddenly appeared in the Bristol area....
  9. Nah, rats actually build. Rats are known to burrow extensively, both in the wild and in captivity, if given access to a suitable substrate. Rats generally begin a new burrow adjacent to an object or structure, as this provides a sturdy "roof" for the section of the burrow nearest to the ground's surface. Burrows usually develop to eventually include multiple levels of tunnels, as well as a secondary entrance.
  10. That's a really big loss to music. Not just an amazing artist in his own right, but such a massive influence on music as a whole. RIP.
  11. I remember going to a drive-in cinema in Bristol about 20 years ago, think it might have been organised by the Galaxy 101 radio station. Can't remember where it was, but a mate drove a load of us there and I got absolutely slaughtered on cheap white cider. The movie was the Full Monty, but all I remember is puking behind (and on the back of) my mates car. Fun
  12. Adverts are obviously annoying. But it's not cheap to run successful podcasts and there's nothing wrong with you making a few quid out of it. Go for it I say! Or hang on until Spotify offer you $100million. You might have to do a series called "A Spliff With Elon Musk" to get the big money though.
  13. There's also a political agenda behind disparaging and questioning the character before the movie has even been released. It's 2020. If there's a kickass black female character, so what? They've had kickass females and black people in Bond movies for decades, why is it suddenly a concern?
  14. I'm an equal opportunities grump when I am driving. I hate pedestrians, cyclists, cars, buses, lorries, vans, taxis, motorbikes and animals. If everyone and everything buggered off, I'd be a much happier road user.
  15. It had the best theme tune though.
  16. It can't be as bad as Quantum of Solace or Spectre. If it's up there with Casino Royale & Skyfall then I'll be happy enough.
  17. Saw this and thought of this thread. Bridewell prison was burned during the 1831 riots.
  18. Yeah that sounds real and not something that you made up.
  19. BLM haven't murdered anybody in the US. Far right groups however.....
  20. Breaking my rule of not replying. Are we now at a stage where we think of events that the other hasn't mentioned and throw it at them saying "Haha! You never condemned the killing of a bloke at Stonehenge in 5000BC!" or "Gotcha, you never praised the Anglo-Saxon soldier who in 867AD saved a very young Viking child from drowning!". Of course I'd condemn any slavers from any nation at any point in history. Being anti British slave trade doesn't make somebody pro Barbary slave trade. I'm not sure British schools need in depth studies of the history of slavery in every culture that
  21. Nobody is making Britain a special case. You'll hear more about Britain's involvement because this is a British forum and we are (mostly) British people. On an American forum it'll be about slavery in the Deep South. In France it'll be about French slavery and colonialism. Etc etc. We never get a proper discussion on it because we get "but it was ages ago!" or "we can't apologise for the past" or "but what about the good parts of British history" or "people have more important things to worry about". All that's true, but those comments are always made to try and avoid the issues.
  22. None of that contradicts what I've been saying. I've yet to hear Scandinavian or Italian people tie themselves up in knots in a desperate attempt at avoiding the darker side of their history though.
  23. Being one of the first to stop it doesn't excuse being one of the ones who profited most from it. Even after slavery officially ended, we spent another century imposing indentured labour which was just slavery by another name. African traders profiting from their own people? Africa is not a country now, let alone back then. It'd be like saying "and the Czech's helped sell the Welsh into slavery". Being on the same continent and having the same colour skin doesn't make them the same people. But you are right that that aspect can be overlooked. As I said, no nation or people have a mon
