    Why is the last page showing as November 2013? I suppose someone deleted a post.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    It sucks having a great controller for PC games, but games having a fixed huge dead zone to compensate for the X360's shoddy thumbsticks.

    You can change dead zone settings with something like Xpadder. But yeah, it sucks that you can't do it through official game settings.

    Isn't Xpadder for key+mouse -> joypad simulation?

    Well yeah, but you can also adjust dead zones with it.

    Working in leisure sometimes makes me despair for the human race.

    "Can I have a refund please it is way too cold in there it's ridiculous"

    "Sir it is an indoor snow slope."

    "Yes I'm aware of that but surely it does not need to be that cold."

    Face. Palm. Fuck. Off.

    Two days ago my fridge suddenly started producing the foulest of the foul odours imaginable. I mean "Satan himself having both vomited and shat extensively over the thing followed by Mowgli in a drunken stupor doing exactly the same" levels of vile corruption.
    Bizarrely, the smell came exclusively from the back of the fridge.

    Today I finally figured out what was going on: apparently there's a little tray above the motor that gathers excess water during a defrost cycle and a tiny amount had gathered there. For some reason it suddenly turned mouldy yielding aforementioned results.

    I henceforth bow to the power of nature, being able to produce such utterly vile odours from a tiny bit of stale water.

    Not sure that qualifies as a proper rant.

    The silent treatment

    Me and the girlfriend have been going for a while now and have been looking for houses to rent etc...

    Basically (without blurting my whole pathetic love life on here) I was getting insecure and a bit needy! Dont get me wrong it was well justified. She flipped and said she needed space and it was making her unhappy having to "walk on egg shells" about hurting my feelings and saying the wrong thing.

    ANYHOO what is it with woman and needing "space" to think and giving the silent treatment, we havent went a day without at least texting for about 8 months!

    I'm pulling my hair out!! I said I wouldn't text her and give her space but I'm losing my mind! If you dont "want/love whatever" the person then just tell them. Its horrendous!

    Rant over

    It's usually because they want to fuck other men to make sure that they're not making a horrible mistake staying with you. Don't worry, she'll be back once she realises what a catch you are.

    That's a shit one werewolf, been there myself in a big way. Please, please take my advice and play the silent game right back at her with NO exceptions. She won't miss you if you're still popping up every 5 minutes for her not to miss.
    Feel for you though man, 'snakes with tits' etc

    @Dolly Thanks for advice, Aye thats what everyone says. Just leave her to it and if it really means anything she will be in touch. So fucking difficult to not just lose my rag and tell her to BOLT. If I didnt care so much I would have told her to do one two days ago lol

    Best way to take your mind off her is to get some strange.

    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.

    Kick her the fuck out.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    No my rant but a really good one.

    People standing still right after stepping off the escalator, checking their phone or whatever, and blocking the way of the following people.

    Deliberately being a twat or really so fucking dumb?

    Yes, and shop doorways. And people standing in groups in the middle of supermarket aisles having a good old chat.

    Yes, although in those instances you can at least wait for them to get out of the way. On an escalator, it's not just antisocial, it's braindead.

    Pah!

    I had some holidays signed off ages ago for a week tomorrow. You get time off approved, you make plans.

    Some other dude comes along and tries to book the same day off today. The new boss comes over and says "You'll have to fight it out between you". We're both senior team members.

    Err...shouldn't you take some managerial responsibility and tell the person who's not booked first that he can't have it?

    Anyway, we've worked it out and I've still got my time off. I'm off over Easter week and booked a holiday abroad. I got this signed off a couple of months ago and made it clear that I won't be fighting with anyone over this.

    What really fucking annoys me is this. It's the way it was handled. If someone booked some time off before me and I was told I couldn't have it, I'd have no problem with that whatsoever. Not "Fight it out amongst yourselves!".

    I always work over Xmas (including on call) as that's never really bothered me, so everyone on the team can take the time off. So it's not as if I come in at the start of the year and book off the big holidays. It's also the first Easter break I've taken since starting here over three years ago.

    And yes, Titanfall may have something to do with that specific Friday :-)

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    buzfeed, upworthy and all that other shit. Fuck off. Ditto 'heartwarming' stories of how some kiddy managed to fix/save/rescue something or other, and how it 'reminds you that the world isn't such a bad place' as if we're all fucking kids ourselves.*

    *not gonna correct that last phrase.

    I think the right phrase is "faith in humanity restored".

    Ugh

    Fucking parents get on my tits with holiday booking.

    There are 850 people that work at my place and about 1/3 of them are women. However there always seems to be about 15 women off at any one time having yet more babies.

    That can't be normal.
