    Do you trust the food you eat?

    Does 'nasty' actually just mean 'cheap' in Wholefoodese, though?

    Storm Chasing

    Yeah. Apparently it caused several million pounds worth of improvement.

    Storm Chasing

    No. Would love to. I've dreamed about them since childhood.

    Do you trust the food you eat?

    Funny how often populist nationalism is a cover for doing the least patriotic thing possible.

    Do you trust the food you eat?

    In general I think it's OK in this country but much of that is due to those dreadful EU regulations that we all hate so much, so god knows what it'll be like in a year's time.

    Michel Houellebecq

    Oh god, I can practically smell him from here. :sick:

    Henry Miller

    True of course, but the appeal of these sorts of novels comes precisely from the knowledge that they're at least semi-autobiographical, doesn't it?

    Jeremy Corbyn

    At the risk of going over what is now very old ground, it's important to remember that 2/3 of Labour voters voted Remain. (I appreciate you're not saying Labour would have won if it had adopted an unequivocally pro-Brexit stance, but I have seen people make this argument. Really, I think the...

    Jeremy Corbyn

    It's possible, of course, both that he was victimized by the media and that he is simply not a very good politician.

    Henry Miller

    Perhaps it'd have to be a city in eastern Europe, or the Middle East, or Latin America.

    Henry Miller

    I have to wonder where - realistically - a novel like this would be set today, given the pace of gentrification in so many places over the last couple of decades? Surely not London, where probably the only areas where someone with this kind of lifestyle could afford to live would be not only...

    Henry Miller

    On The Road is in the minority of novels I've started and not finished - got about 50 pages in and decided it was just really boring. I can appreciate that it was fresh and relevant in the 50s, of course, but maybe it's because that whole "young/ish white bloke bums around in grotty-but-cool...

    Great line for when you accept a proffered cigarette after umming and ahhing about it for a moment.

    Russia declares state of emergency after 20,000 tonne diesel leak in the Arctic Circle

    Just when everything was going so well! :(

    Pointless But It Makes Me Chuckle to Myself

    I'm sorry but this intersectionality has just gone too far.
  17. Mr. Tea

    Henry Miller

    Yeah, I looked him up on Wikipedia earlier and saw this bit, too. Sort of thing that's easy to think of as a neutral "formative experience", or even to think "sounds great", but then if you reverse the genders in your head and ask yourself if it's still OK, you're like, eh...

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    Worst chat-up line ever.

    Trump

    Indeed. But to pick up version's point: how obsessed with the immorality of abortion have you got to be to look past a president who's been accused of assault or rape by 25 women, one of whom was 13 at the time? And if literally all you care about is abortion, then how many women must Trump have...

    Trump

    This is basically what I getting at, except you've put it a bit more articulately.
