Re: Latest movies mega-thread

Holy crap I saw two movies in two weeks, thats the fastest I've been back to the cinema ever o.o Just home from watching the new Bladerunner. There's loads I could say about it, and I imagine there's tons more for movie-buffs to really dig into. Even a pleb like me can see how much effort went into ...

Re: Latest movies mega-thread

I was the same for the first one. The concept just sounded cringe-worthy "Chav joins organisation of Gentleman Spies" Then I was forced to watch it and it was fucking excellent. Never had I been so happy to be so wrong. Though, during this movie I got annoyed because I was desperately trying to reme...

Re: Does anyone have rats?

A friend of mine has pet rats, has had many over the years. They can be lovely pets and quite affectionate. I asked him his opinion and he said: "They're clean and smart, and definitely have their own personalities. Also adorable." I wouldn't let the stereotypes get in the way, they can be great pets.

Re: Latest movies mega-thread

Watched Kingsman 2 yesterday. Was very worried about them fucking it up, since the first is one of my favourite films.
Happy to say they didn't fuck it up, very good movie, lots of fun from start to finish.

Oh my, I tried so many old passwords to get in here...

Can't say I've been checking regularly (or at all), but I'm glad this forum is still going. So many familiar faces!

Thankfully, I will have left them by then.
Being the cheeky bugger I am, I've jumped into the last year of the course. :-P

Re: Mensajitos

Oh, I finished my apprenticeship last year. I was doing night classes in Electrical Engineering, and I've just left work to do a HND full-time. The difference being an electrician is the guy crawling under floorboards and the electrical engineer is the guy telling the electrician what to do. (Becaus...

Re: Mensajitos

Had my nose to the grindstone the last year juggling full-time work and a zillion classes. But, now I'm living in ol' Glasgow (again) and am a proud member of the Scum-of-the-earth club, Full-time education. Having free time is alien to me. I have, like, entire -days- to do anything I want with :sho...

Re: Rantettes & Ravettes - the show must go on....

It's not a case of "Hey, I got money for nothing!". It's about being denied the ability to earn the money in the first place. You sign a contract with your company, and on that contract your employer will promise you X hours per week of work. If you breach that by not turning up, you get jack; but i...

Re: Rantettes & Ravettes - the show must go on....

UK law is that if you're sent home through no fault of your own, you're due the wages for missed hours. Or put another way, if an employer is forced to send his employees home through no fault of his own, he's penalized their wages. Indeed! Someone had to lose out, and employer drew the short straw...
