  1. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    I'm sorry guys. The worst part is I can't think of a single appropriate reference to respond with.
  2. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Probably not going to be able to see it until like 2 weeks after release. Some fan I am.
  3. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    I'm sad to hear that, but I make no apology. Cold pizza has to be stopped.
  4. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Ah fuck. OK, most of it is incorrect - hot beans are good.
  5. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Literally all of this is incorrect. Look, I wanted breakfast but I just didn't have the time. I couldn't be ate two day in a row; I hear that sort of behaviour is frowned upon outside of university.
  6. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Lost track of time again today (I'm clearly shit at this "being an adult" business) and decided to forego breakfast to avoid being late for work. The results are marginally better than yesterday's but I've just had lunch and I'm still hungry. We live in a harsh and unforgiving world. Hot baked beans are great, but there's something's terribly wrong with you if you eat them cold for breakfast.
  7. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Now, a cooked breakfast (accompanied by tea, of course) is a thing of delight, but that sort of thing costs time and effort, time I'd rather be spent snoozing. My regular breakfast is a necessary evil, or so I had thought. My experience today has led me to begin question its purpose.
  8. They say it's the most important meal of the day, but my breakfast today brought me nothing but misery. My cornflakes were stale, the milk questionable and to top it off I lost track of time and ended up being 5 minutes late for work. It's clear that breakfast had a net negative impact on my life today. How do you feel about breakfast, board?
  9. Alien: Covenant (update: new date and poster)

    Nice. Reminds me of the original movie poster.
  10. Convince me that Brexit wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Oh yes I know, but very many (most?) are happy to believe the likes of Farage because it's easy to blame the foreigners. I also think SeanF is right in that most British people don't want to be involved with Europe other than economically, which is at odds with the EU's core objective of "ever-closer union". I voted remain, but talk of a single European army definitely rubs me up the wrong way.
  11. Convince me that Brexit wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    I'm sure that most British people couldn't give two shits about the living standards in less wealthy EU countries, particularly given the cuts to public services we've seen. Most don't see it as cooperating with Europe for the greater good, rather having to support weaker economies to the detriment of our own.
  12. Convince me that Brexit wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Steady on now, it's barely started! You ain't seen nothing yet. I've seen it thrown around that UK citizens may be allowed to elect to remain EU citizens on an individual basis, but I think I may have read that in a Independent headline I scrolled past on Facebook, so it's not at all reliable.
  13. [SPOILERS] Fantastic Beast and Why to Avoid Them

    I haven't even seen the movie, but I'm wading in here because I've got an itch to throw my nerdy weight around. Firstly, the wand's changing allegiance thing is largely a load of nonsense that was invented for the last book, but it affects all wands, not just the Elder Wand. Case in point: Harry snatches Draco's wand from him and Ollivander says afterwards that it belongs to him and it performs better than the wand he borrowed from Hermione. This snatching somehow also gives Harry mastery of the Elder Wand, which is complete bollocks if you ask me. Secondly, simply killing the previous owner doesn't make you the master of the wand. Snape killed Dumbledore, but given that Dumbledore was already beaten, Snape doesn't become master of the Elder Wand. Similarly, Harry lets Voldemort kill him without putting up a fight, so Voldemort doesn't become the next master. I will probably see this move at some point, but I think I may wait until DVD, though I think I have seen every other one in the cinema and I think it would be a shame to break my streak.
  14. Video Games: Thread Simulator 2016

    Does Sony really think a properly-marketed TLoU movie would have the same target audience as Ratchet and Clank? Ass Creed's performance will be far more informative (though I think it will also bomb).
  15. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Oh no...
