Note from Karl: Let's try to get through this & similar threads without being mean about Cal. Bear in mind that he might be reading but he can't reply, which can make jokes seem like bullying.



As we all know, the best thing about any story, video or article are the comments that are left by the users.

This is the thread to quote the best or funniest comments that you have read. Please post a link to the story as well as the comment(s), otherwise they will make even less sense than normal.

NOTE: This is a thread to post and laugh about the comments, not to discuss the stories themselves.

I will start with a BBC story on Professor Brian Cox appearing on Australian TV, he got into an argument with a climate change denier and the BBC commenters had a wonderful time discussing it.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-37091391

Brian Cox doesn't know anything about climate change. In this case he isn't rent-a-brain, he's rent-a-gob.

Fun fact ... Britain was 2 degrees warmer when the Romans were here and they used our home as their empire's best place to grow grapes. I don't remember the Romans having to pay climate taxes for exceeding the arbitrary 2 degree limit imposed by the Rothchilds UN.


climate change? PURE FANTASY. mammoths died out due to climate change.
where were the chimneys then? LOAD OF RUBBISH!


I assume this one is a joke (but you never know!).

Global warming is a myth. Educate yourself, sheeple; try putting 'global warming' into YouTube and open your eyes to the truth. You don't even need to watch the videos (I didn't), just scan through some of the comments and you will have all the evidence you could possibly need. Vote Trump


Oh get back to D-Ream Brian and take your grandad shirts with you. I for one am looking forward to lovely warm summers so it's a win win situation....it's all monkey magic anyway.....( that's him told)


Everytime I see this Cox on his programmes at first I think its the new M&S menswear advert, then I think of Paul Whitehouse in the fast show; "Brilliant".
Climate Change is probably bullshit and even if it weren't there are far more serious existential risks than it.
As for NASA its now seen as a big bondoogle. Watching old Apollo footage or even the stage set they do ISS from is hilarious!!

I don't know why I read comments sections on news stories. I guess it's for the occassional nugget of enlighted information, or a link to something interesting. For the most part though I genuinely come away depressed at the state of humanity and thinking that if a planet killing meteor or comet was to hit us that it'd probably be for the best.

Moving away from the fascist BBC and onto the liberal Daily Mail. The DM have a story about the “great” sit or squat debate. The commenters are as calm and collected as you would expect them to be on a story about sitting or squatting to gooseberry fool.

http://www.dailyfail.co.uk/health/artic ... laims.html

This is the top rated comment.

What a load of crap. Pardon the pun!! This is just another way of keeping certain cultures happy. Live our way or get out.


Are you able to read a newspaper or book comfortably whilst squatting? No. Debate over.


We might aswell just throw all our ways of livinf and culture away to appease others! Becoming a joke i see one of these in every bathroom in a hospital the money we waste of stuff like this. Do you think they do the same for Europeans in middle eastern countries???


Oh why not a hole in the back yard to appease those who come from a culture that does that?


Sadly i work in a building with many people from the middle ages and frequently find footprints on the toilet seats


It's also natural for cats to $h!t all over everyone else's gardens. We have evolved past that in the west.

Back to the BBC for some Olympic News.

http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/37090237

If China had selected sportsmen from countries like Somalia to be allowed to migrate to serve team GB as Britain the Chinese wold have all the gold medals

Team GB somaia......oh dear oh dear cheat


It takes a lot of practice and skill to sit pretty and collect a gold medal

While the poor horse does all the hard work and only gets a bucket of oats for his reward

How very typically British, she'd do very well in Management


No actual News???? I don't pay my TV licence too see dancing horses... Of course show some sports, but this is absolutely unbelievable.... The Hillary Scandal, Riots in the streets of Milwaukee, blacks beating whites.... Shame on you BBC, how do I delete my account? And I won't be paying TV licence in future either...


So we are basing our judgement on what sport is by whether it uses a war skill.

Here's a war skill, soldiers torturing civilians. Britain Gold, USA Silver

Back to the Olympics this morning, let's see how BBC commentators are enjoying another night of success for Team GB.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/37102147

Is anyone else tired of watching cycling, gymnastics and diving ? We want athletics, track & field, and all the traditional Olympic sports. Usain Bolt won the 100m final with nobody watching. Come on BBC - sort out the schedule.


Why can't the BBC sort out the schedule in Rio, Brazil? :x

Well done to all but let's not forget that these cyclists are paid by the tax payer and through lotterey funding to cycle!

They're full time employees, empkiyed to do a job and that is cycle.

No doubt the sirs and dames will be added soon as the hysteria continues but they're doing a job their paid to do... No more and no less and medals is no more than us the tax payer should expect.


Congrats to Trotty what an excellent race.

Now a dig at the BBC why is it every time Sir Chris Hoy is shown on air his name comes on as Chris Hoy but when both Sir Bradley Wiggins and Sir Steve Redgrave are on air their names are shown correctly with 'Sir'. Has the BBC forgotten that Sir Chris Hoy was knighted in 2009, come on BBC sort it out it's a disgrace.


People saying that athletes are skint and all that they should all have their feet kissed for doing their job - Laura Trott was hired by Halfords to sell bikes a couple of months ago and Mo farrah earned 2mill last year - and they are all funded by uksport next will be the hello magazine wedding exclusive and farrah tryin to flog quorn rubbish - yawn yawn


I'm afraid I can't watch it - I'm very happy for them - they've gotten very good at cycling round and round a track very fast - but wish it could be left at a medal.

In my life I've had depression, pneumonia, cancer and throughout all of it I've held down a full time job and supported myself and now my wife and kids - where's my medal? - or all the other people who battle through life?


What happened to the 10 o'clock news yesterday ?

Some people may want to watch wall to wall sport but others have lives to live.

Yeah, the BBC don't have many comment sections open on political stories though and the sports idiots do tend to get downvoted. The DM ones were all highly rated, but I can't bare to click on that site too often to look through the bile.

This thread isn't supposed to be a balanced account of commenters though, more a place to post comments that you have seen that have made you laugh or infuriated you.

Let's go with some of the highest rated comments on a story about Australia agreeing to close a refugee camp that they built in Papua New Guinea, following the PNG courts decision that the camp was against the PNG constitution.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-37104363

Don't end up like Germany and Sweden, Australia. Never let them settle in your country or you will be back to 450 boatloads a year arriving. Genuine asylum seekers go to the nearest safe country.


We should be doing the same, send all illegal immigrants to a camp on Ascension Island, they will soon remember where the left their 'lost' passports.


And of course "rights groups" say Australia is shirking its responsibilities.
What about the rights of the Australian people - this is a sign of weakness.
All refugees should be turned around and deposited right back where they came from - hopefully taking some of these "rights groups" with them.


"Whatever lands our feet touch we rule, it's in the Quran"


Said BBC pin up boy Anjem Choudhury.


This is a retrograde step.

This news story also represents part of an ongoing politically motivated attack by the BBC at Australia in order to bring public pressure on them to shove them into the 'progressive' [sic] fold.

Stick to the news, Auntie, you're not even remotely subtle enough for propaganda.


So long as we keep letting them in they will keep coming, The Australians are making a stand, and good on them for doing so. These people are just taking advantage of the stupid lefty PC rules that we have had forced on us.

I was more impressed at the outrage that PNG would dare to close down the Australian camp inside PNG. They want countries to get tough on illegal immigrants, but also want Australia to have an illegal migrants camp inside another nation? :slol:
