You mean "blessed" by the footballs surely.

My eyes can struggle to focus at the best of times.

This is basically a hate crime.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

I guess that's how we dealt with it in the 90s - you just sort of phased it all out. Actual web design has spoilt us largely due to things like Wordpress.

I didn't have internet in the 90's :(

Didn't get any half decent access until 2002 when i started using a PC which had been set up in the local library.

Cds that don't come in bog standard jewel cases really get me. I like symmetry and uniformity,not oddly shaped tat in cardboard that scratches the disc.

And no,I refuse to join the download only world.

yes lots of cd releases do this now - quite annoying and looks crappy on a shelf/display.

I believe it is largely due to efforts to reduce plastic waste.

I think digipacks are fine although admittedly I prefer them with the clippy part plastic at least and actual flaps, not pockets that have the CD stuffed inside.

Just recycle them and buy a load of empty CD cases, then scan or cut out the artwork. There are plenty knocking around anyway.

Tyson Fury. Just shut up and disappear back under whatever rock you crawled out from under, you insufferable bellend.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Does blu tac protect against spiders? Just had one of those really nasty ones in here, the sort that is about the size of a 1p coin but look all mean, run like the wind, and stick to the outside of whatever items you're trying to use to trap them.

Also the banana splits that use their indicators but only once they’ve already braked and started turning. :fp:
