    UK Politics: Austerity has ended - More cuts to come.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45979359 So the Home Office has been forcing immigrants to take DNA tests?! To what end?
  2. Fallout 76 looks thoroughly mediocre, as expected.

    Haircuts

    I go every 8 weeks or so to keep it tidy-ish. I dread it though because I don’t like the small talk and barbers invariably ask me about football, which I don’t watch. My best experience was in Paris, where I lived for 6 1/2 months. A friend of mine recommended a quiet barbers in the 15th (I lived in the 14th), where two older gentlemen cut peoples hair without small talk and actually washed your hair in one of those bowl things, which was a completely alien but actually really nice experience. Only cost €16 as well, in central Paris!

    Small things that have left you SPEECHLESS

    I’m late to the party I know, but to be clear, the “ban” on clapping is not a blanket ban, but is intended to make student debates and panel discussions more inclusive and therefore democratic. Societies and clubs at the uni are not banned from clapping. It’s a well-intended move but short-sighted because it now excludes blind people. Also the idea that clapping excludes deaf people is total bollocks because they can still see clapping as well as jazz hands. I think it’s a shame that many headlines have been unnecessarily inflammatory and portraying it as pandering to “snowflakes”, when they are just trying to make university more inclusive to people with autism and sensory issues, which is a noble goal. The execution is just very clumsy and not well thought through.

    Bond 25: Hiddleswift Down

    I just remember the editing of the action scenes in QoS being horrifically choppy.
  6. A few years late, I’ve discovered Cities: Skylines. I have a wonderful city called “Shitstain” and I’m very proud of its progress. It has the same addictive quality as Civ, wherein you’re always making progress and there’s always something else to do. I’m glad I only started after I graduated.

    His Dark Materials Series

    I’ve noted my concern about her age on here before, and was surprised they went with more than one season per book. There’s enough material for more seasons, but not enough time.

    Awful is a strong word. It’s not necessary, and is a bit clumsy, but it wasn't as long as it originally felt when I watched it a second and third time. I don’t deny that it could have been handled better though.

    More Things Star Wars

    I very marginally prefer the duel in TESB to the RotJ one. I think the tension is fantastic - it’s the first time Luke and Vader have directly interacted, and it’s the first time Luke has used his lightsaber against a real person (wampas and apparitions aside). It’s such a different end to the first film as well. Rather than saving the day against the odds and getting a medal from a princess, Luke has the crap beaten out of him physically and emotionally and barely escapes with his life.

    Awesome. Awesome to the max.

    Thanks I’m bouncing.

    Thought I’d dig this thread up to let you all know that I’ve got my exam results back and now have a first class degree.

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    I thought its charcters were unusually weak. It just jumps around too much for them to develop properly.
