    Just because something might offend someone doesn't necessarily make it banworthy.

    If that was the case the entire forum would be on GI by now, including the moderators themselves.

    Quite. We're not here to make sure you're all sunshine and smiles. The ignore button exists for a reason.

    I totally called it.

    We could always ask Craigy to add a rainbow emote.

    An excellent idea. Also: spunky curtains.

    Make it so, pooter-wallah.

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    I am still sad about the lack of jaffa cake emoticon. Might be hard to pull off though.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I wonder if some Video game websites give some big games top marks because they know their name will be on the advert with some quote and score splattered across it which'll increase visitor numbers to the site.

    Seems like an arrangement where everyone wins(apart from the people buying the game)

    I've always admired hardcore climbers. Mostly because it's a pants-shittingly scary activity. But lately I've been fascinated by it for a different reason. Everyone has a different theory on why peering over a precipice is so exhilarating.

    Some blog guy has this to say:

    Climbing is the most physical embodiment of existential philosophy I can think of; to paraphrase Sartre, man makes his own meaning and my absolute favorite, Kierkegaard: “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.”
    Skydiving offers a similar experience, I guess, but whilst it is equally insane (willingly hurling yourself into the void is a bit odd), it requires considerably less skill. And less time for contemplation.

    I'd love to go mountain-climbing, but I have neither the balls nor the time to develop the skills required.

    I'm curious about the sensations it affords you, though... being confronted with the fragility of your existence. Hanging on by a thread, quite literally... etc.

    People like Joe Simpson make it sound like a spiritual experience. Something that cuts through all the extraneous crap and kicks you square in the metaphorical balls.

    /woah duuude etc.

    My girlfriend plucked out a really wiry hair from my eyebrow at the weekend.

    I miss it. I miss twiddling it. I hope it grows back just as inflexible.

    From tomorrow I am the only lawyer in a billion pound business.

    - I have no idea what I'm doing -

    Eek, time to find a cupboard to hide in.

    @Psychotext

    The day I hit 30 my eyebrows went out of control.

    It's like I've got two grumpy, dysentery riddled porcupines nailed to my face.

    Beatboxing has to be the worse talent a person can have.

    I'd say faecal incontinence was less useful, certainly less pleasant. What have you got against the beatboxers, jungle boy? It's an impressive skill IMO.

    I'm taking everyone off my ignore list just so I have more people to hate.

    It sounds awful and looks fucking ridiculous. I refuse to accept that people like he noise that is produced from a music standpoint so all you are left with is a grown man making baby noises at speed and a bunch of urbanites convincing themselves that this is entertaining. I would put it in the same category as people that can farting the national anthem and smoke from their vag in the talent stakes.

    @mowgli I agree on the whole, but there are some talented beatboxers out there.

    This dude for instance is immensely talented:

    Edit, because I always fuck up directly linking YT videos (like a twat).
