You will probably (most likely) lose your Get Back 50th anniversary to the Coronavirus (meaning it will be cancelled), as well as losing your family, but we can pull through this in the next 10 years.

It will not be cancelled. The new Peter Jackson film may see an online/DVD/Blu-Ray only release, rather than cinema, but will be released, and there will be a (late) deluxe edition of the album to coincide. Too much money and time already spent to be otherwise.

I have no doubt about that, even if it is further delayed from September.

  

 

late as in 2070?

  

That's just unrealistic-- even though the coronavirus will still be going on throughout the next year, everything isn't just going to stay shut down for the next 50 years. People can still do the jobs they need to do on the project while still maintaining social distancing and proper hygiene. It's not like the work needed to be done to complete the 50th project involves everyone giving each other hugs and breathing on one another. As RN said, a lot of money and time has already been put into it. 

It's also extremely unrealistic to surmise that the conditions we are in now will last for the next decade. Will it be going throughout this year? Most likely. But will everything just remain stopped and not functioning and horrible for the next 10 years? Very unlikely-- even though we may have some idiots at the heads of our government rn and things are looking pretty shitty as it is, we're still smart and technologically adept enough to be able to get things to a level of functioning and progress at least throughout the next two years. It will take time, but not that much time-- and it will certainly be sped up as long as people keep their heads out of their asses (*cough cough* all the people who fecking just treat this as a fecking conspiracy theory and are just making things worse by denying it and not excepting social distancing protocol and instead actual protest it like the dumb fecks they are  *cough cough* and Trump *cough cough*).

So do you think we'll meet the September release, or will it leak into 2021?

I think we'll get the September release, maybe slightly delayed, and possibly via something like Netflix. Footage has already been shown before the lockdowns. The film is done and ready to go, which is why I also think Giles has probably more-or-less completed the audio for the deluxe.

Wonderful breaking news, and as I predicted would happen, it will be confirmed tomorrow (Wednesday) that the brilliant, inspirational Captain Tom Moore is to receive a knighthood, after being given a special recommendation by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

You all know I'm a big fan of his, as are many of you, and it's a well deserved honour.

When I was young we were taught to use consonants and vowels as they formed words, we then put them into some sort of a coherent sentence so those reading had some idea of what we were talking about. Nowadays it seems to be random letters and folk either searching online or asking to break the code.

Actually the real reason those acronyms were created were to get around character limitations in the early days of texting, mixed with the annoyance of using a number pad to type letters.  Now that character limitations are alliviated and T9 followed by full keyboards were implimemted on cell phones there is no need to use the abbreviations.

It's not letting me quote.

 

I know that it's to do with the number-pad keyboards - as I said, 'efficiency'. You guys must have had it bada-hard-days-night-paul-7

It's stuck because it's now very much a marker of being in our generation, as every generation uses language differently. We've pioneered the e-speak 'dialect' of English, which contains lots of initialisms. They've stuck because a 'requirement' of texting, or electronic messaging in general, is being fast - because electronic messaging is meant to simulate a real conversation, and real conversations are usually at a fast pace. Anything you can shorten while still getting the message across is useful in helping achieve that task of being faster, so they're still used.

 

So glad I took linguistics, I find all of this so fascinating.ahdn_george_01

Well you can argue that with chat sites like Discord and Whatsapp, online communication today prioritizes faster, easier to understand type communications, which is probably why you'll see modern acronyms such as 'LOL', 'NGL' and 'ASAP' as well as emojis.

Of course back in my day we only had emoticons. Children today, I tell you.

The Conservative Government in the UK, sensing it's new "Stay Alert" message isn't really working, and with Boris's best buddy, (power behind the throne) Dominic Cummings, in lots of trouble for breaking lockdown rules more than once, it's rumoured that Boris will turn on him and sack him live on BBC Breakfast...

...like heck, will he!!! They're looking to replace the slogan...

...are some in contention. This is the current favourite:

He has even thought about doing a Strictly and going international...

He's tried his friend Donald, a person of some influence in the Government of the United States of America, to see if he wants a franchise:

It never ceases to surprise me a) how determined politicians are to keep their best mates in work whenever they screw up (tho I do wonder how much Dominic knows about Boris and if he would ever speak) and therefore will say anything to make it look like the mate wasn't doing anything wrong, and b) that we all know if it was Labour in Government and was the best mate of the PM it would be the exact same situation. And before anyone brings up the Chief Medical Expert in Scotland, Nicola was more than willing to initially bat it all away with a stupid statement or two before it was revealed just how idiotic Catherine had been (twice) and it would have been political suicide and made the daily updates laughable if she hadn't resigned. Dominic just sits behind Boris whispering which way the Tories are to go.

All a bunch of arsehole hypocrites; happy to tell the world off for not following the rules yet happy to let their buddies get away with it.

Grant Shapps (Transport Secretary) being asked by Andrew Marr for clarification over Dominic Cummings was a joke; either getting lots of "yes, those are the rules but.." and "as far as I know...". At one point they got bogged down in the details of a police statement.

Makes me remember 'The Thick Of It' and all the talk behind the scenes where they all berate how much shit they have to throw out which they know no one believes to save some guy they know is a twat so they can please the PM and keep it all under their control.

Utterly disgraceful, the UK's Chief Advisor, Dominic Cummings has been spotted at a rugby league match in Australia. Having already broken multiple coronavirus restrictions, it's disgraceful that he deemed travelling to see a rugby match of all things acceptable. I really hope something is done about this!

^^ Quite surprised that I haven't ranted extensively on here about that arrogant git yet, but I imagine that the other UK Forumpudlians feel the same way about the situation as I do, and I've already posted one long political post to the forum today. I will take the brief moment to include this absolutely brilliant front page from the Daily Star (I've been pleasantly surprised by how reasonably the otherwise horrendous tabloids have reacted to this, even the Daily Mail had a critical front page).

This is a bit of a tangent, but why do English newspapers have these bright colorful fonts that in no way represent how the rest of the world is usually like? They look awfully similar to tabloids, if I'm going to be honest.

Oh, this is a tabloid! They're awful, don't get me wrong, but just once in a while they really knock it out of the park and manage to actually speak truth to power. Our broadsheets look more like this.
