During the few minutes I was watching I do remember some mildly philosophical ramblings about how pointless the entire sport was. Seems to me they’re just trying to concuss one another. It’s a barbaric sport.

Love one another.

I've been doing a good amount of CD buying online.  Most of my buying experiences have been good, but I recently had this experience.

I have Ringo Starr 's choose love on CD, but I discovered he'd released it on Dual Disc as well.  I purchased one from a discogs listing and it took forever to come.  It finally arrived one day, and I picked it up with the mail on my way home from work.  I was so excited I opened it as soon as I entered the house.  I worked my way through all the packaging only to find I had recieved a CD copy....

POed, I immediately messaged the guy and said in the nicest way possibly, "You idiot, I obviously ordered off the listing of Dual Disc, and you sent me the CD".  I was pretty sure jlhe didn't even have the DualDisc, so I just requested a refund.  Luckily he gave me one, no questions asked, so I basically got a free CD.  Since I already own the CD, I gave it to my local Goodwill so some lucky kid can pick some Beatley music for cheap.

While it worked out in the end, it's still disappointing.  I waited almost 2 months for the wrong package to arrive, and I still don't own Choose Love on DualDisc.

The side of my fingers are really itchy on my left and it's very bloody annoying. I have resolved to scratching my finger with a ridged cap off an old spot cream tube. It does the job but mah god it's annoying.

I had a spa last night (some of you would call it a Jacuzzi i think) with my dad last night, and naturally the only bit of my skin above the water was my head.
I got 7 mosquito bites. 7.
So your finger, ASJ, and my head, are both very itchy!

You poor creature, one of the few blessings of living in western Europe is the absence of mosquitoes. Seven bites sounds like a nightmare, I always get bad reactions to bites but yeesh.

Yeah, it definitely is a pet peeve of living in Australia - a lot of mosquitoes in summer!

Thank god for anti-itch ointment amirite

I don't know, is there a difference between midges and mosquitoes? Because the north of England and Scotland is crawling with midges... *shudders*

We have midges too but they never come after me. Any bites I've seen people get from midges are also pretty 'calm', in comparison to the almost welts you get from mosquitoes.

Midges are bloody evil. They are everywhere in Scotland in the summer and nothing gets rid of them so you either spend the entire time flailing your arms like you're possessed by a mad marionettist whilst getting eaten or run away quickly.

This is deeply uncomfortable viewing.

Mosquito bites are the worst things on Earth and I get such terrible reactions to them that I have to take Benadryl to reduce the swelling....and they like to bite me a lot, too. For some reason, I'm a bug bite magnet ahdn_paul_01

Oh Jesus, poor fella. Whenever I'm out in Connemara (which is not that often anymore unfortunately because my Irish language work is practically 0 now *plays sad violin*), there are always swarms of them zooming about the place. They never bother me though, however they love my older brother.

When I work with Granddad out on the bogland, they're about and so are horse-flies, none of them have ever gotten be but my friend was in brutal pain for 3 days after getting bitten by one.

Midges are a different creature than mosquitoes but from what I've heard no less irritating.

On the left, @50yearslate, is a midge, and the right a mosquito...

Currently watching BBC Alba so my answer is Partick Thistle, they make it so difficult to support them when they barely get possession and when they do, try and score a goal when there is a 2% chance of them succeeding. 

 

I'm beginning to think they should be sponsored by Specsavers next season.

Could easily get relegated this season which would be an achievement of sorts.

^They should be proud of themselves. Hey, if they get relegated they might finally be to able to beat someone, I'm thinking they've got a good shot against Peterhead.

Talking of Peterhead. Years ago there was a competition where Alexandra Burke (her who murdered 'Hallelujah' on 'The X-Factor' and won) would play in the location that had the most votes, this was taken over by a couple of Scottish football forums who pulled together and sent her to Peterhead. Fair play to her that she did.
