    Who hates Robert MacFarlane the most?

    ***PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ANSWERING THE POLL UNTIL LUKA AND STINKYBOY HAVE EACH HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR CASE*** This thread is for the two of them to demonstrate the intensity of their loathing for the country's foremost curator of twee archaic dialect words for a particular type of cloudy...

    Educating Craner (about wine)

    OK so I think the DotD has been derailed enough by the wine chat, and since we're all becoming lockdown alcoholics I thought we could do with a proper thread about wine. I'll start, but I really don't know a great deal (just enough to have some idea of how much there is to know, I think), so I'm...

    version's Thomas Pynchon masterclass

    OK. So. Shall we give this a whirl? I'm going to read GR again, starting tonight. It confused he hell out of me the first time around, which I guess is the point.

    Thread for HMGovt to post tracks and describe them in a portentous way

    Portentous and/or pretentious. I thought this was well cool: Tell us about the time a darkside jungle tune reminded you of Grendel emerging from the mists of his haunted mere on the tail end of a mushroom trip in a service station car park. Or...

    Special thread for Mystic Craner's election predictions

    Assuming we haven't reached total election-chat saturation yet, I'd love to see what our resident election prediction guru par excellence has to say about what's going to happen on Thursday. His cryptic comment the other day that he thinks "Labour are going to do quite well" piqued my interest...

    Take a photo that sums up what's going on in your life right now.

    DOIN' THE LAMBETH WARP: novel-length story collection - out now on Kindle!

    Bizarre and gruesome disappearances in Dalston and Bloomsbury; a city-wide catastrophe triggered by an ancient monolith; the ghastly truth about Harrow; drugs, decadence, incest, madness, murder; a diabolically bad pub band and the most excruciating dinner party of all time: all this and much...

    Pointless but it freaks me the fuck out

    What freaks you out? Especially about yourself. I just spent a good minute looking for my phone. Turns out I was *holding it*. I've had a couple of beers, scarcely wasted. Like what the actual fuck.

    Mass shootings

    Thought it was high time we had a general thread about this. Some points about the most recent spate: * Trump continues to prove there is no absolute zero of decency by offering the usual vapid thortsnprairs and, in the next tweet, reiterating the need for "immigration reform". God knows it's...

    Amsterdam - what's good?

    I'm going for a few days next week with my girlfriend. I've been before but only for day trips or to kill a few hours before waiting for a plane or train connection. Would love some recommendations for where to go/what to do/what to see. More on the cultural and food/drink side of things than...

    luka-approved ANTI FART PANTS

    luka sent me a PM in strict confidence about this miraculous technology but I thought it would be unforgivably selfish of me to keep this news to myself. I quote: "theyve totally revolitionised my life! now i can have the confidence to go out in public without fear of embarassing myself with...

    Jokes, anecdotes, trivia, "fun facts", I don't care. Please.

    What is the UN for?

    Seriously, it is anything other than a paper tiger these days? It just seems completely toothless given that UNSC permanent members with opposing geopolitical aims can simply veto resolutions they don't like. And even when resolutions are passed, countries with friends in high places routinely...

    What is "populism" and why is it bad?

    Serious question. It's a word that gets thrown around an awful lot these days, but it's hard to get any real feel for what it actually means, beyond the fact that it's usually used pejoratively. At its most basic it just means appealing to large numbers of people, doesn't it? In which case, a...

    What are you making?

    Not writing, not music. Not food, there's already a thread for that. I'm talking tangible art, practical objects, garments, beer, whatever. If anyone here is into mechanical/electronic projects, Raspberry Pi and stuff like that (I get the impression this might be HMGovt's bag) that can go in...
