    Errr, am I wrong in thinking that if you go around wearing an explosive device (even a fake one) you are liable to be shot & killed by the authorities?

    I’d certainly think so, I think Police procedure is to shoot the suspect in the head to try to cause instant death / incapacitation to reduce the risk of detonation either by activation or t…[Read more]

    I thought The Irishman was great. The deaging thing is a distraction best ignored really.

    It’s not Goodfellas 2, I’ve heard complaints that it’s “not much of a gangster film” it’s not really. It’s verging on Docudrama.

    Wasn’t too long, we’ll until the last 15 mins or so which dragged a bit.

    The Irishman was ok I thought not great. I couldn’t stop wondering what was up with De Niro’s eyes some sort of colored contacts or something?

    The eyes were part of the deaging thing.

    They start off very bright, and end up milky.

    Seems there might be a nIce story about one of the members of the public that intervened. Apparently one of them was in fishmongers hall (the building with columns in the background), on hearing about it he picked up a narwhal tusk and went to confront the guy. Apparently that is what the white pole is that can be seen in some of the…

    It’s Wales in January, I’d be fairly confident it’ll be damp.

    Actually it’s one of the few times you have a decent chance of a dry ride, cold frosty rides are the tits in Afan!

    These things are always confused when it comes to ‘on the spot reporting’. I don’t suspect mefty was trying to troll or whatever.

    And if you want ‘just the facts’ follow the Met’s twitter feed.

  • P-Jay replied to the topic Afan on a hardtail… in the forum Bike Forum 1 week ago

    No the question is, is it mad to do it on a hardtail?

    Certainly not from an ‘underbiked’ point a view. Which is harder/faster FS/HT I’m not sure, had my arse handed to me by a HT rider a few weeks ago on one of the faster (but smoother) bits of Cwmcarn.

    Blue / Penhydd share the same climb for about 2/3rd of it, then Penhydd splits off and…[Read more]

    Perpetrator was tazered not shot, seems member(s) of the public tackled him, multiple victims reported at least 5

    Dunno about that, maybe two suspects, I think someone was taken out of a lorry?

    Anyway, in the video I saw there were 3 Police with Rifles drawn, at 1 point an officer points his rifle almost point blank as his face, changes his…[Read more]

    What element of it would be stupid, the amount of riding? that’s more than I can do, but you know what you can do.

    The fearsome Afan on a HT or even a Carbon Spark? You’ll be fine mate. The core of the trails dates back to when most people were on rigids, there’s a few bike parky bits, yeah more than a few rocks but you won’t hurt a Carbon bike…[Read more]

    Yep, I don’t know why I watched them, but I’ve seen 3 videos now of the shooting. It’s barbaric, but shooting people is. What can they do though? Since 7/7 they have to assume that if someone is wearing a very, or even a bulky clothing they’re wearing a bomb.

    I’m not sure if the suspect is dead, seemed to still be moving, but no one is going to…[Read more]

  • P-Jay replied to the topic Your Worst Ride Ever in the forum Bike Forum 1 week ago

    My first crack at The Gap about 8/9 years ago.

    We left Brecon town (probably not the best places to start) packing a couple of litres of water and no food, or indeed any way of buying any unless they took expressive dance / sexual favours as payment.

    Took the route we’d taken loads of time before doing Taff Trail charity rides along the canal…[Read more]

  • Snowdon, or to be more precise riding it with MTBs.

    Do you want to be looked upon by your fellow Man like Jimmy Savile skipping hand in hand with Gary Glittler? Take your bike up Snowdon.

    It’s ground zero for the sort of grumpy rambler who detest anyone else using the Outdoors, it’s a total slog to get up and not very good to ride down.

  • P-Jay replied to the topic Now TV/Sky Go question in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    NowTv is pretty much only on WebOS TVs AFAIK, so LG Smart TVs.

    TBH NowTV is good value, but the interface is pretty terrible across the board.

  • I’m probably one of the worst offenders. My ‘bag for life’ collection is large and varied.

    As ever, it was done with the best intentions, but Industry fucked with the programme and ruined it.

    You don’t need to be a rocket surgeon to work out there’s a hell of a lot more plastic in ‘bags for life’ than disposable ones.

    Firstly as the current custodian of a 100+ year old ‘fixer upper’ you did the right thing, it’s not a project, it’s an endless, and thankless job you’ll be doing for the rest of your life. I live in a street of houses building around 1900 and this is hyperbole, in the 3 years we’ve been here there has never, not once, been less than 3 of them (out…[Read more]

  • In short yes.

    I’ve removed most of my News apps from my devices, But my Twitter feed is still a endless stream of Brexit and Election news, half truths and outright fabrications from every faction.

    I’ve decided that whilst it’s important to be an informed voter, that after I vote I’m giving up caring about politics, there’s good and there’s bad…[Read more]

  • Well… the war on drugs has been working so well for the last 40 years, I’m sure we’ll see the end of all illegal drug use any day now.

    But seriously, you can treat addicts as criminals, keep them in the cycle of crime to feed their habit, robbing houses, mugging people, shoplifting and prostitution to keep lining the pockets of dealers.
