Somebody Else's Problem wrote:Just watched an old episode of Bullseye. At the end, one of the teams declined to gamble because they wanted to go to Australia and the prize money would go a long way to helping with that. Fair enough, so they bring on the next team, who decide they do indeed want to gamble. They win, and what was the star prize?
A strawberry floating trip to Australia.
Sucks to be the guys who declined it.
I seem to the have developed a habit of watching old episodes of Bullseye (and other stuff on Challenge) and I don't know why.
I also can't stop myself from shouting "Gaaaaaamble" (in a fake cockney accent) during the final round, and imitating the "Iiiiiiin one!" bit
If you’re NOT doing that while watching Bullseye you’re watching it wrong.
Saw something on the news yesterday about people who came over to the UK as kids over 50 years ago being deported back to the carribean because they have no documents to prove they've lived here for that time.
The fact they have had kids and grandkids (who are actual British citizens) in that time should be proof enough, they had jobs and were therefore paying tax so why bother deporting them now?
strawberry floating stupid twats in the home office.
An analysis of 600,000 drinkers found that drinking five to 10 alcoholic drinks a week was likely to shorten a person's life by up to six months.
I'm happy to sacrifice those last 6 months for that delicious booze
The article says:
Scientists, who compared the health and drinking habits of alcohol drinkers in 19 countries, calculated how much life a person could expect to lose if they drank the same way for the rest of their lives from the age of 40.
Therefore I’m not going to worry about it for 9 years and keep drinking that delicious booze
