    As an owner of an xbone, who used to play a lot of Halo before it became shit, the only reason to get an xbone over a PS4 or a PC is if you’re friends already have one and you want to play with them.

    England. Currently cursing my lack of Irish ancestry.

    Star Wars Thread: I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It keeps coming up in discussions, but I’ve always interpreted Luke drinking the breastmilk as a joke taking the piss out of the nostalgia bait that we typically expect. ”Oh yeah, a mild twist on the classic Star Wars blue milk thing. How predic- oh god that’s revolting!” I dunno, I just thought it was a funny bit of meta humour.

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    Yeah I expected as much. What a time to be alive.

    Why are they calling her a Nazi, exactly? Has she said or done anything to cause people to use that particular term, or is it just a term they’re falling back on because they’re incapable of articulating themselves and by diluting the term they are attempting to reduce the impact of its use against themselves? I expect I know the answer, but just wanted to be sure.

    Skyrim’s actually over 7 years old now, which is a bit scary. I’ve barely played any of the Witcher 3. I just don’t have enough time.

    MCU - X

    So she’s young and acts like it, but that makes her unrealistic?
  8. Thanks for the laptop advice! I know a desktop is a much better investment in almost every aspect, but I still want the portability of a laptop.
  9. I’m shopping around for a new laptop that I will probably buy in January or February. Does anyone have any recommendations for where to shop or order online in the UK? I’m looking at spending £700-£800, so nothing ridiculously high end, just an i5 and a low-mid range gpu. I’ve been looking online at PC world, but was just wondering if there’s anywhere better to look.

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

    The government has published its guide for applying for residency in the UK for EU citizens. https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families It’s making a few people at my work concerned, specifically the Norwegians whose fate is still apparently to be negotiated. I was surprised to see it published this week, given that it is quite likely that the deal will get voted down, which could presumably change how this works.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45979359 So the Home Office has been forcing immigrants to take DNA tests?! To what end?
  12. 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.
