    We have a new match for the main even. One problem. Courier "The Obese Gay Alcoholic" Collie just wont work as an effective boxing moniker. As self appointed agent and fight promoter I'll get right to work on that one. I'm happy to run with Sick "The Cunt" Puppy though.
    I think a rubiks cube race could be a goer. I've never solved one though have been led to believe it is a learnable skill.

        Yeah put up a video of you doing it. And then doing it in a shorter period of time.

          This made my day. Bbv is familiar with this iconic moment of Magic. Here is some more of Prince in directors cut of it . Must be on my 100th view of this .

          A classic YouTube clip of Prince dazzling his peers at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony has been re-cut by the original director.

            I have a 3 month child. I didn't even finish reading the thing. I don't have a rubik's cube, and I am so tired I almost ate a teabag earlier.

                Next race at Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby, isn't off for 90 minutes... LOL Merica

                90 minutes of NBC coverage would be preferable to 10 minutes of ITV's social stable shite, some of the NBC coverage is actually interesting.

                  In fairness I’m middle aged overweight and have done some redic stuff. Apologies to Collie who has had a tough few years think the last 13 months have had people sideways at times. Had a tooth out got infected stitched reinfected stitched some jaw bone removed two weeks of crap sleep stress. I got knocked to the ground in a boxing match 33 years ago was off balance. Don’t know how I’ve managed not to get a slap in the face since.

                    I learned how to solve Rubik Cubes earlier in the year. Two minutes I think it was taking before I gave up. The key is thinking of it in three flat layers rather than 6 faces. Maybe. Moved on to something else after that.

                        sickpuppy called a poster an 'obese gay alcoholic'. That's completely out of order, under all circumstances. Nobody should be defending that, or seeking to deflect away from it.

                        Your posting on the other hand reads like something from the seamier reaches of Trumpworld (which is where the most nonsensical chatter about 'cancel culture' emanates from).
                        Huh?

                        The rare posts I make, generally boil down to saying the same thing regard, all this stuff. That basically all anyone can say is, " I dont know ". And it's a pity polarity and the tone of communication have changed. I dont think thats Trumpy stuff, and I dont allign that way. Again, I see that as an issue that if someone takes a moderately different viewpoint, they are painted as some extreme. Normally not the case.
                        I thought 'cancel culture's generally was driven by snowflakey elements of extreme left, again, ultimately who knows. Generally enjoy your posts, no beef my end anywho.

                          Dont worry lads you are approaching early middle age. It's the new Male menopause. Couple that with trying to cope with the over intellectualism of new woke directives and a new buzz word every few weeks , is probably boiling our piss unnecessarily. We probably all sit in similar camps and the conversation verbage would be completely different 10 years ago on similar topics.

                          Disclaimer. I have no idea what I'm trying to say here .

                            I was replying to this:

                            which was your response to sickpuppy being called out for abusing another poster as a 'gay obese alcoholic'. I'd like to think we'd all agree we shouldn't be throwing around abuse like that on here. Instead you posted about 'cancel culture', which is the current favourite BS topic of the extreme right in the US. It reads like a defence of sickpuppy's post or else an attempt to deflect away from it.

                            tbf your posts have always tended to be on the Finnegans Wake end of the spectrum so maybe it meant something else in your head, in which case let us know what that was.

                              Tom Hickey was a larger than life presence in my life growing up, a consummate artist and all round good guy. RIP

                              When I turned up the radio this morning to have my father hear that the death of his old friend was the headline story in the news, he seemed shocked and then when I said that Tom must be nearly 80 he laughed at me dismissively 'What are you on about, sure Tom is 15 years younger than me' so I said oh really so what age would you say he was ? In his 30's he replied with a 'Like D'oh!' look on his face.

                              This is amazing!

                                  I think what you were trying to say was that we need more nuance rather than polarisation, which I agree we can all do with.

                                  Sickpuppy I think the conflicting mask advice was down to a couple of things, 1) they don’t work to stop you getting it which was the initial advice, but they realised that people who had COVID didn’t spread it as much when they wore masks so the advice to wear them was to stop the wearing spreading it rather than stopping them getting it.

                                          Not moneybags but richer than Irish provinces. Leinster & Ireland can't handle well coached big teams. Cant buy-in size and haven't been able to develop it. Final will be very tasty and good luck to both French teams.

                                            Is it just me or is Selby is just unlikeable as a snooker player. Whenever he plays I just seem to root for the other player to win

                                                  It was mainly:

                                                  - use a stainless steel pan to get the right crispiness
                                                  - use a water test to know its at the right temperature (a teaspoon of water should go in a bubble and skate on the surface when its the right temperature)
                                                  - only add oil after the pan reaches the right temperature
                                                  - very generously season food before cooking in a pan as salt is what gets the flavour out
                                                  - cook once each side listening to the sizzle to know its cooking properly

                                                  Heres the water test direct from Rouxbe:





                                                  I cooked chicken only seasoned with salt and pepper and a bit of lemon juice afterwards, and it was widely proclaimed as ridiculously good. So whatever about those individual instructions, it seems to have worked.

                                                    It's certainly not just you, a lot of people don't like him - mostly Ronnie O'Sullivan fans to be fair.

                                                    Personally i love the way he plays the game, he is the greatest matchplayer ever imo and is about to win his fourth world title at 37. Be a pretty boring sport if everyone played the same. What he doesn't get anywhere enough credit for is his actual break building prowess, you dont win multiple world titles by just being dour and goos at safety, he's a far more complete player than that.

                                                          Maybe hitch is only repeating the obvious stuff... his only fans pages has the best bits apparently

                                                            I pay for courses and teaching all the time. On any subject 99.9% percent of the information is available on Google, but you are paying for it to be wrapped up neatly for you, and the act of paying for it means you are much more likely to pay attention and really take the information in. In hitches case I'd imagine the dish being complented was worth far more than whatever the cost of the course is.

                                                            PSV I think you need to spend some time with your bare feet in the grass. It would do you the world of good.

                                                                Hope La Rochelle close it out in the final now. Everything I hear about them as a club is very positive, they seem to have that Clermont vibe about them.

                                                                Leinster fell apart a bit once Ruddock went off. Hugely underrated player and leader.

                                                                    - use a stainless steel pan to get the right crispiness

                                                                    - only add oil after the pan reaches the right temperature
                                                                    - very generously season food before cooking in a pan as salt is what gets the flavour out
                                                                    - cook once each side listening to the sizzle to know its cooking properly
                                                                    Getting the pan hot enough is a good 101 type tip. Especially where people grew up in an Irish Mammy whose standard approach was to pile in as much meat as possible to the pan so they can make another stew under the guise of frying.

                                                                    Comment

Had never even considered the basic idea of pan heat, despite it seeming obvious with hindsight. Probably the first time I ever cooked anything was aged 19 in student digs and it involved shoving things in a pot and hoping for the best. Have improved that over the years, but its still all based on following recipes and without any underlying skills of the basics of how cooking works.

                                                                      The course btw is $10 a month with the first month free, its not expensive.

                                                                          Although an asterisk to hot pan rule is that it’s dependent on what your cooking. For example, pan fried duck breast should be started with breast in a cold pan, heated slowly.

Unbalanced one woman who fell on to the tracks and then they just walk off. Absolute scum.

About 200 yards away from me I could see them blocking a car not giving a fuck. Dawdling and acting the bollox.

I guess its the same idea. I just quite like the idea of a course compared to a book tbh. Quizzes and mini-videos and exercises.

Letting veg swim in a pan in a sea of oil at a lowish temperature in order to extract out flavours to create the base for something like a soup. Another basic enough idea, but interesting enough as you'd often focus on the bigger later flavours in a dish compared to the beginning ones. Making a tomato sauce which will cost at least twice what a supermarket tomato sauce would cost!
