Fed up talking videogames? Why?

You should play Goat Simulator, it's best enjoyed when under the influence.

It wasn’t somebody I work with, but he changed his mind about a year after the referendum and became a very vocal Remainer. Was too late by then though :cry:

Just ordered a Domino's and I'm going to eat it while watching Starfleet's finest, might make it a Friday tradition - pizza and Picard.

Although sadly even the Star Trek utopian future seems to be crumbling these days so it might not offer much comfort :cry:

Went and got drunk with some Polish friends, told them they're all dicks and that we have the best nation on earth, rule Britannia!!!

Rewind about 4 minutes from this posting to the Sky News presenter interviewing the 2 drunk blokes. About 11:06pm.

And here. Most of them sound far off though, so I can convince myself that my neighbors aren't outwardly bigoted, at least.

I heard one sad, lonely firework at about 11.03pm here in south Bristol. Apt.

Going for the US angle, CNN is currently interviewing a euphoric Sikh bloke that we’re leaving. Followed by ludicrously dramatic music like it’s A MOVIE.

Meanwhile on Sky, they’re interviewing Farage. People shouting “Down with the BBC!” in the background.

Sky News is currently projecting “The UK has left the EU” onto the cliffs of Dover.

I dared to venture onto Facebook. The muppets are out in full force, sharing pictures of Farage, Churchill and “happy independence” bollocks.

This was pretty special though.

So we come out of the EU at 11pm tonight BUT we still have to abide by the EU rules for about another year while they sort out trade deals what a bunch of cockwobbles obviously they still haven't pulled their heads out of their arses and want to drag it out a bit longer


How the strawberry float has he only just realised that? These idiots have no idea what is going on and we’re supposed to respect their ignorance?

They’ve taken away my 3 year old son’s European citizenship and I’ll never forgive anybody that still supports this gooseberry fool.

I watched it on tv and that’s it, I am saddened by it all not because we are leaving the EU as I feel rather indifferent about it but saddened for what in may mean for our Union of the United Kingdom

I also feel embarrassed seeing some of the sort of people that are enthusiastically waving Union Flags while shouting “burn it” and burning a EU flag, I also fear that we (as a country) will fall in line with all the rules and still pay into the EU but have no say or influence on how it’s run

My first day as a truly independent British subject started with me having to clean up piles of cat vomit from my kitchen floor.
I think the universe is trying to talk to me.

Great stuff, so glad our industry will come back because we're not in the EU. :simper:

They don't care about the benefits, they just don't like foreign people because they're not as wholesome as the British

I heard some at 11ish on Friday - I turned off the light and rolled over to go to sleep. It was quite a depressing moment :(

No fireworks here even though I am around 10 miles away from one of the biggest leave voting areas in the country (Mansfield 70.9%, my constituency was 60.4%)
