  1. Save your money. It's a total non-event of a film. Saw it last night. The pacing is pedestrian, the card game is really boring, and they kill an Aston Martin for no good reason. It has no climax, and dribbles to an end half an hour after you wanted to go home. It's peppered with clumsy cultural references in an attempt to bring it up to date. Clever gadgets have been replaced with mobilephones. There isn't even a secret base. Instead, Bond sits on a chair in a grotty shed and gets his stoness whipped with a length of knotted rope. God, I wish I'd just made that up... And the attempt to give the characters emotional depth fails. Top marks to the marketing team though, for convincing me it might be anything other than sharn. 0/10

  3. I'm all in favour of giving Subbuteo to heroin addicts, though the twisted swines would probably flick-to-kick when it wasn't their turn...........

  5. I'm not convinced. It doesn't look like it's outside your house, a pub, or the dole office...
  6. it's happened again..... I've woken up to discover that a thread has disappeared without trace. Fair enough, it was a pointless thread and no good would have come of it. But it's gone, with no trace of it ever having been here. As someone who has enjoyed the use of public forums since they first emerged, many moons ago, I fully appreciate the need for moderation. In fact, its largely because of people like me that they exist. I remember the good old days of the internet, when registration was unheard of and it was possible to post as other people just by using the same user-name and mimicing their various illiteracies. Sweet memories..... I appreciate that moderation is a necessary evil, just to protect the the owners of a board from possible legal challenges regarding its contents. Fair doos. I also appreciate the vast amounts of effort, time, and money which the Shetlink team have invested in this project, and enjoy the free use of this board on a daily basis. Thanks guys. However, from a user perspective, I find the 'disappearing' of threads that ocassionally occurs here incredibly frustrating. I'm not contesting your reasons for choosing to remove them. It's your board, you set the rules. Again, fair enough. I just think there should be something to show that a deleted thread had once existed. Even a sticky 'threads deleted' thread in this forum would do, with moderator-only access. All that would be required would be the thread title, the forum which it was removed form, and a brief reason. One line would do it. Without this, from a user perspective, it seems as if you are just playing god. Try and see it from the little-persons point of view. Thanks again for all your efforts, Regards, Dave

  13. I'd have thought that this would be more appropriate attire: Ingredients: 1 cup honey 1/2 cup dry white wine 4 tablespoons minced fresh mint salt and pepper, to taste Directions: Combine honey, wine and mint; mix well. Season cut side of boned lamb with salt and pepper, then spread with honey mixture; roll and tie lamb. Brush outer surface with honey mixture. Roast on rack in shallow baking pan at 325[F 1 to 1-1/2 hours or to 160[F on meat thermometer for medium doneness. Baste every 15 minutes. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. maybe give them a month or two.....
  14. All I can recall is: There's a dentist in Birmingham, He fixed my mouth, And when I went to sleep, He filled my teeth with iron. I remember, as a child, sitting by a single speaker tape recorder and becoming rapidly tired of it. I had no idea a video had been made. Some of the things which stick in my head truly terrify me. Boney-m, y'all
