    Game of Thrones! season 8 trailer out!

    I'm out and don't have time to respond to your whole post, so for now I'll respond to this bit. Watch it again. My whole point is that the whole place DID collapse. The entire room collapses behind them and then onto them, but then...next episode...it hadn't.

    He's being sarcastic. He thought it was shit too. The entire scene with Bran and his council near the end felt like an SNL sketch.

    Hughie Fury Back Fighting 25th May @ Manchester Vic Warehouse

    And then a guaranteed snooze fest to help make up for lost sleep.

    Game of Thrones! season 8 trailer out!

    Yeah, I'm prepared for that, and other than the odd episode in season 6 and 7 I have basically just enjoyed the show and overlooked the dips in writing after season 4 or the gratuitous shock attempts and cliffhangers that they began to introduce in season 5 too. It still held up in general and...

    Game of Thrones! season 8 trailer out!

    It was shit. Literally all the foreshadowing and big things that GRR Martin wrote in were made irrelevant. Whoa...Jon is Aegon...big deal, nobody cares. Dany has gone full mad queen...well sort of, but she's still getting teary eyed at the idea of executing Tyrion, she is focused on ending...

    Netflix: The Irishman...

    Almost certainly. And yet I'll still hold out hope.

    What should be the goal of the criminal justice system?

    Protection first and rehabilitation a strong second. But, and it's a big but, this depends on the crime. Rehab is hugely viable and desirable for someone who is burgling to feed a drug habit, or sucked into gang crime as a teenager etc. If it's someone raping kids or killing people for kicks...

    Cop pulls gun on guy picking up trash on his property..

    He doesn't even look "like a bum" anyway. It's hard to see exactly what his clothes look like due to the image quality, but what we can see is he's in jeans and a hoodie with headphones on. He's dressed completely regularly from what we can see, and even if he wasn't, it makes no odds, as you...

    Cop pulls gun on guy picking up trash on his property..

    :lol: Apart from the fact that he was holding a litter picker, picking up litter and putting it into a bucket when the cop approached him. In fact, as he walks up to him, the guy has literally just picked up some rubbish and put it in the bucket. He then stops and takes out his headphones as the...

    Is Deontay Wilder the hardest punching heavyweight...

    He's up there, but the vast majority of his KO's are against poor opposition who have been dropped and stopped by lots of other fighters too. Not all, but the majority. He has not stopped someone with the proven durability of Frazier, in the way Foreman did, or Holmes in the way Tyson did. But...

    Cop pulls gun on guy picking up trash on his property..

    Oh don't get me wrong, the cop is the issue here, and while cops like that continue to think they have the right to just walk up to someone for no reason and demand they do whatever they are told, more people will end up dead. There are people who have mental health issues and there are people...

    Cop pulls gun on guy picking up trash on his property..

    Pathetic from the cop and he flat out lied to his colleague too. He did not think the guy was damaging anything or that he was banging the metal (which was clearly for picking up litter) bar against anything. It's amazing seeing people who are ostensibly big on the constitution come and defend...

    Tommy Robinson is standing for MEP in the North West of England - VoteTommy.co.uk #Panodrama

    Can't remember the name mate, it's the young lad in Robinson's documentary. Robinson presents him as some victim of PC madness...I looked the lad up after watching and he was high up in a group who had the goal of a all white Europe. If that's what you believe...whatever, but be honest about it...

    Tommy Robinson is standing for MEP in the North West of England - VoteTommy.co.uk #Panodrama

    That's fair, but you have to remember that for the majority of people... they don't care. Most Hindus don't think badly of you because you eat beef, most Christians don't dislike atheists and most veggies don't hate meat eaters. Obviously it varies, and with Islam the proportion who hold...

    Tommy Robinson is standing for MEP in the North West of England - VoteTommy.co.uk #Panodrama

    That's fair enough mate, I just mean...a background in a belief system is not the best indicator. No doubt, that Hindus and Sikhs find it easier to integrate, and in main I think alcohol is one of the big ones there. Pub culture is integral to Britain, even if you don't really drink...going to...

    ~ TENNIS - Nadal dominates Djokovic just before Roland Garros ~

    It would have suited him great. As a rookie he beat an ageing Sampras at Wimbledon on the old grass, and Sampras went on to make the US final that year and win it the following year...WAY past his best, but not useless. Federer's closest surface to old Wimbledon in his career at large has been...

    ~ TENNIS - Nadal dominates Djokovic just before Roland Garros ~

    Yeah, good shout. Kuerten and Rios were obviously 30-40 years ago. :lol: And the reason that we don't see this as much now, is because Wimbledon ripped up every court and replanted them in 2002 to make them slower, with a higher bounce. Fucking joke to be honest, but it meant that all the clay...

    ~ TENNIS - Nadal dominates Djokovic just before Roland Garros ~

    Like the silly nonsense around Wimbledon that you still haven't bothered to address? Connors missed the French for 2 years because he was barred, due to choosing to play Australia.

    Tommy Robinson is standing for MEP in the North West of England - VoteTommy.co.uk #Panodrama

    I have heard him say this, and I'm not sure I buy it. There's nothing inaccurate about what he says on the issues with Islam, but this very well read version of Robinson is relatively recent (last few years) and when he set up the EDL it was nothing like this academic or reasoned. That recent...

    Yeah, that's another great example. In 15 years of appearing in Grand Slams, Muster entered Wimbledon 4 times. :lol:
