    I can't make dinner anymore without being grilled afterwards by my girlfriend about every tiny fucking ingredient that went in it.
    Surely she should be adding it as it's been made? I weigh and add each ingredient as it gets prepared, much easier.
    Really? I'm all for watching what you eat, but does this not take things a little far....

    It's all about the macros. If you want obsessive you should see how some bodybuilders go about it.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    And that's fine if you're competing or something, but just your average bloke wanting to keep the weight off?

    Mercenary management it looks like.

    You pay them, they tell you what to do, charge you shitloads for their expertise, get their buddies contracts to make the changes to your business, leave you in crippling debt, and disappear from your life forever, even though they promised you'd always be together and elope to the Phillipines and have a private ceremony on the beach.

    Bastards.

    Ya I think so.

    There's a company around here that will offer to merchandise your stuff in store, but tell you you have to pay for extensions and shelving and stuff, and they'll install it and lay it out nice, according to their expert sales knowledge. You can cut your costs by signing up to a supply contract with them, and their stuff will be overpriced, and delivery days are non negotiable and things like that.

    Arseholes, well and truly, most of them. It's a good scam though.

    They want to interview me about the future of children in China. Bit weird right? I thought it was an academic thing as I am a teacher but now I have checked their website I think otherwise.

    What kind of fee do you think I should ask for?

    At least 3 Chinese children I'd have thought.

    Hahaha :D

    Seems they're a bit different to the 'innovators' I'm used to.
    Do you know other teachers who have done anything similar?

    Thats sounds bonkers.

    A guy I used to work with put them on to me, he told me it was research for a 'book or something'. It's for a girl he knows.

    I've emailed them asking for more info about what it is for and how my input will be used, as well as if I will be compensated

    Largely irrelevant on the whole, but who is to say she's not some sort of sportsperson or something. Yeah, I know.

    You should always be competing. If not professionally, then at least against the rest of the blokes in your department for the attention of Tracy from Accounts.

    Really think the dementia advert where they sing a song missed a trick by not doing Never Forget by Take That.

    I think they're trying to distance themselves from the whole "dementia = memory problems" angle... given it really doesn't.

    Some UKIP thing on Sky News right now. Farage is doing his best to make his party not look like they are mostly made up of a bunch of pre-deluge Tory racists by making sure that most of the people around him on stage are non-white.

    Exactly, play through the the dementia side of The Shivering Isles, it's more like depression and paranoia.

    Not too get EG going on one of its long discussions of toilet etiquette again. But I'm at uni, gone to the bog, and someone has pissed on the seat. As in, the seat is down, and there are numerous yellow droplets of piss, right there on the seat.

    I mean, what in the fuck. Do they really need to put a sign up there saying "please do not leave piss where other people are fucking going to be sitting"?!? Has it really come to this?

    "at uni" - keywords here.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    This is an everyday problem if you use public toilets.

    It's when the hoverers shit on the seat when I lose my temper

    It's wall-plasterers I don't like. It's difficult to relax knowing all that is behind you.
