I'd managed to forget all about E! Now you've forced up those suppressed memories of subtitling the pre-Oscars reception red carpet.  :hand: Almost as bad as Girls Next Door (which was on Fox, I think).

No, I'd rather have that - even 2nd or 4th time, indeed any nth time - than pretty much anything on E! It by no means had a monopoly on crap, but other channels at least a few things that were not total crap.

Well, I suppose that's not news in itself.

BONG!... A lot of TV is crap... BONG!

BONG!

People leaving the Big Brother house is not news.

It's doubly not news for the BBC news site.

Possibly Channel 5 may want to mention it but the BBC?  Really?

Disproportionate? Let's  start a thread on POBI to discuss.
From where I am the private sector have taken a few hits along the way as well. Stakeholder stock market based  pensions if you're lucky, zero hours contracts if you're not.
Swings and roundabouts really.

Sorry but I fail to see how private sector employers exploiting workers with zero hours contracts and miniscule pensions reduces the deficit.   Such shareholder value is only likely to increase the welfare bill with working tax credits etc and thus increase the deficit.

Gah, last week I happened to be awake on Monday morning between five and six, and I was listening to Radio 5.

The news came on, then the sport, and apparently it was the last day of the transfer window. And not much had happened.

Which they must have mentioned about another five times in that hour - FFS. Even when I cared about football, transfers was the dullest part of the whole thing, and anyone who gave a fuck would already know what had happened, so repeatedly reporting that nothing much of interest has happened is just taking the piss, especially when the subject is of no interest anyway.

I should have turned over to Farming Today.

BONG !

BBC News Website-

Name-row horse Brian fails police trial

OK, so take a while to digest that headline.  Try to imagine what the BBC's top investigative journalists were trying to convey in that message.

Give up?

Some of my TV license money went towards that.

For many years I voted Basingstoke station as the most soul destroying place on the planet. It lost its crown after an 8 hour layover at Washington Dulles International Airport. The worst part was that the 8 hour wait was for a flight that only took an hour.

At least Dulles has a tolerably comfy smoking area right next to a bar.  Hartfield-Jackson in Atlanta has an area for airside snoutcasts, but it resembles a meat freezer in temperature and the visiting area of a maximum-security prison in ambience.

Does this count?

Quote
A NAILSWORTH man who threatened to give up his job to go to Iraq to fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) has now decided against it.

Kyle Sessions, 22, told the SNJ that he had spoken to his father and other family members, who felt the trip would be dangerous.

He said he “agreed with them” and had now decided to “cease all my efforts”.

I rather liked David Duchovny's comment:

The dress is Teal.

Also, any fule can see that it's white and gold.

I'm late to the party on that one.  Got distracted by llamas.  But I've seen various pictures all over the interweb with various white balance tweaks, and can only conclude that the dress is fugly.
