    The OcUK Men of Honour 2020 and 2021

    Congratulations on the awards One thing you can say about the forums is that the social hierarchy is fluid and there are opportunities for members to elevate themselves beyond Morlock status.

    Pandemic 2.0?

    Is it time to dust off the old Covid subforum?

    Is my work colleague flirting with me?

    OP you are right to trust your instincts on this one. She is trying to signal to you but also desperately trying to be discreet about it. Sugar is sweet. Sweet rhymes with feet. People wear socks on their feet. Ergo she wants you to knock her socks off. Be calm. See your friends. Get out of...

    Elon Musk buys twitter for $44 billion as left wing media melts down

    I think Elon Musk has got a good deal here. Microsoft were offering a similar amount of money for Yahoo back in the late 00s and they were already pretty much dead. Twitter is still relevant and straddles the line between news and social better than other platforms. I could see Musk even...

    Question what if time does not exist?

    Time definitely exists. We wouldn't have a Shatner's Bassoon in our brain otherwise.

    All of Daniel Craigs bond films now free on Amazon Prime

    The term free does seem like a misnomer. At best it is a redundant word, but marketing love to deceive with this kind of language. E.g. on the Audible app there is a heading for "Trending listens only from Audible". Initially it sounds like they are Audible exclusives, but really it's just a...

    first movie you watched at the cinema

    Willow is the first that I remember. Saw it at two different cinemas.

    Will Smith hits Chris Rock on Oscars stage

    Yup if I was a lawyer I would be advising my clients to plead guilty in the hope of a more lenient prison sentence. Judges have been known to dish out academy award bans and that would be a life-ender.

    Will Smith hits Chris Rock on Oscars stage

    Even without the physical violence, if Will Smith had just sat there shouting his mouth off, that would have told me everything I needed to know about him. A total lack of class and self awareness.

    Cadbury has shrunk the size of its Dairy Milk sharing bars by 10%, but will not reduce the price.

    One of the classics. In the 90s I bought a set of acrylic paints. Inspired by Bob Ross I tried painting a mountain scene. It wasn't very convincing and I remember my brother saying it looked like a Walnut Whip.

    Cadbury has shrunk the size of its Dairy Milk sharing bars by 10%, but will not reduce the price.

    Yeah they did a few years back and it got quite a bit of publicity / free advertising. I think they have reintroduced a version with the nut back on since then.

    Will Smith hits Chris Rock on Oscars stage

    I didn't even look at the results. When people were talking about the Academy revoking his Oscar win I thought it was something from years ago. Now that I've seen his acceptance speech which was after the punch it just makes Will Smith look even more pathetic. And the crowd too for getting...

    Cadbury has shrunk the size of its Dairy Milk sharing bars by 10%, but will not reduce the price.

    My favourite was when Nestle removed the walnut from the Walnut Whip. There's not much point in snacks these days. You pick them up and they are light as a feather. Much prefer some of the homemade flapjacks that some cafes sell instead.

    Are British homes sub standard?

    A while ago I saw a documentary that said for new build housing estates, it was common for building reg inspectors to basically be employed by the developers. There is a conflict of interest when it comes to building construction standards in the UK. Over the years I've paid attention to new...

    Will Smith hits Chris Rock on Oscars stage

    The punch looked staged to me as a real punch would have hurt Chris Rock. Poor show by Will Smith but after hearing about his open relationship I feel a bit sorry for him. His stock has gone way down, maybe this is the turning point in his career where he gets his act together and stops doing...

    Your top 5 films (not judging, looking for options)

    I always thought T2 was great but not as good as the original. It was basically a remake of the first but lost the dark tone and introduced a kid and some cheese.

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Phase 3 will be a cupcake decorating contest on the Ukraine-Russia border.

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    The Russians are not exactly known for tit for tat so who knows what they will do. But the more you look at Russia's moves in the past few years, the more they want to intimidate and potentially use them e.g. 2018 presentation on new nuclear weapons. If they launched a nuclear-powered missile...

    Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe faces new charge in Iran.

    She is lucky to be alive let alone back home. See the tragic case of Otto Warmbier who was jailed in North Korea, somehow ended up in a coma, and then died shortly after being repatriated.
