Original Pokemon. Not this new weird looking Pokemon anime.

As an aside don't know if you've seen it but Pokemon X Y is very similar to the originals.


I've seen a few episodes and can also confirm this.

Yup it's basically just a crew going to gyms but they put Ash in the XY locations, it's obviously designed to appeal to nostalgia for Red/Blue as it was the first 3DS Pokemon game and they were pushing that hard (and it worked :shifty:).

They look nice, the boys like it, and thats why they are there. Now, I totally support the argument that its not a view you should be promoting to your kids that women are acceptably used as beautification objects and nothing else. However, if a girl wants to do it, then why shouldnt she? Its a tricky one. Then again, the industries are owned by men and they pay the bills and keep the dolly birds around because they look nice and would like to strawberry float them on their yachts at the weekend. Then again if the girls are on board with that...

As with all change it will be bad for some people at first - these girls have to find an income stream from somewhere after all - but I expect in a generation nobody will really remember or care.

All in all I think its loosely A Good Thing that women arent going to be treated like objects in a frontline and global fashion.


Bit late to the discussion but quoting this because it's bang on. It is ultimately a good thing.

I moved house at the end of last year and the council here are abysmal. We are being charged as a band F, I'm not that worried about the fee as it is a big place, we got our dream house on the exact plot we wanted and we love living here. However, the bin collections are strawberry floating atrocious. The area we came from had black bin bags collected every week and alternate recycling for green and plastic, bottles, etc. They also built a brilliant recycling area so you could get rid of anything.

This area has black bins collected every two weeks that have to be in the black wheelie bin that holds three bags. If you want to put more bags out they will only take them if they are in the council branded bin bags that you can purchase from your local council office. It's strawberry floating scandalous that they can charge you for a fortune in tax for a house being at full occupancy then give you a service that doesn't fulfil half that criteria. To make it worse the recycling service is gooseberry fool, they don't take bottles and there is nothing for garden or food waste. It's no wonder the lay by's are full of people's gooseberry fool. Just to stop the obvious, I realise that refuse collection isn't the only thing that my council tax pays for, I'm glad that my contribution can help provide services that other people use but I believe I'm entitled to begrudge that the part of the service I do use is so inadequate.

I might put this in the buying a house thread as I'm curious if I've come from a particularly good area or am now in a particularly bad one.

that sounds really bad - if theyre going to restrict general rubbish collection then they should be collecting food waste & all recycling to make up for it - thats what our council does: food & recycling once per week, black bins every fortnight

Ours alternates, recycling one week, everything else the other, so every fortnight for each. Three bags max each collection (no wheelie bins as we have no front yards or access round the back - it's a pain keeping rubbish bagged up in a pile for two weeks). Bags have to be provided by the council. Anything over three will be left by the binmen. If we have more I tend to redistribute them along the street or in the big bins for the businesses round the corner.

WTF mon.

We have refuse every week, recycling every 2 weeks, not a strawberry floating clue about the green bins. Can't imagine having to go 2 weeks for refuse collection and having to pile up black bin bags in the meantime. Foxes would come and destroy them and leave the rubbish everywhere within a few nights.

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

Reading isn't great. Alternate weeks for regular rubbish and recycling. We have an extra large rubbish bin but it still fills as I'm in a house share with seven people. They don't take any extra rubbish, which means when it does overflow we have to put the surplus bags in other bins on the street that have space. I guess that fortnightly collections makes sense as our house is an outlier, but its still annoying.

More annoying is that the recycling is super restrictive and there is no recycling for glass, so we have to do that ourselves. It baffles me that recycling isn't standardised across the country, with at least a separate glass collection.

I'm guessing band F is higher?

Down here A is highest, we're C which is £144.

Been waiting on plastic tray and yoghurt pot recycling forever, so try not to but them. It's rubbish every week and recycling every other. We fill one bag a week. House a few doors down fills 5 or 6... The foxes/gulls got one and strew their anti depressants and periods down the road within one night. Lovely.

Where I live, rubbish and recycling every week, garden and kitchen waste every other week.

All good when it is working but when they miss a collection, has to be reported online.

I can't imagine collection based on every other week, our rubbish and recycling bins are filled every week.

Yes?

I don't mind people putting bin bags in our bin if their bin is full. I do mind people just throwing a knackered drawer in there without a bin bag as the council won't collect it. Happened to us the other week. I called them up and was told to log it as a missed collection, but "there's no guarantee it'll get picked up" - what's the point of logging it then?! Logged it, didn't get collected. Called back and was told the bin men had said they'd emptied it originally, and to make a complaint.

We have a baby and a cat, there's a lot of gooseberry fool round the back of my house right now...

Thanks for the replies, crazy that there is such a difference but it would seem that my situation is normal.

Yeah F is higher, £245. Like I said I new what I was getting into with the payment so I can't contain about that. I did actually phone the council a few weeks back and they said that you can have another black wheelie bin if there are more people living in the house (She didn't specify how many). I don't understand how they can charge you based on potential maximum occupancy yet give you a service based on the actual number of occupants.

I think many councils give out extra wheelie bins only for large households, so you can at least store more refuse for longer without it being in the house.

The point is that I'm paying for a large household. I'm not saying those with more people in a smaller property shouldn't also get more refuse allowance, just that I should get the service that I'm paying for.

Finally some bin talk that I can get involved in :toot:

I have 2 bins - red top for recycling and black top for general rubbish. Black top is collected every Monday and red top is collect every other Monday.

Works a treat.

We have four.

Black for general, non recyclable waste.
Red for food and garden waste.
Grey for Plastics and Glass
Blue for Paper and Cardboard.

It's a pain in the arse trying to remember which one goes out each week. I think it's the Blue and/or Grey one this time. I usually just see what the neighbours stick out and follow their lead.
