The Official 'I have something to say but it doesn't warrant its own thread' Thread

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

OK so I'm in San Francisco, yesterday I was dead centre of the city near the financial district, this homeless dude just has his pants pulled down, cock and balls showing , then also proceeds to squat around, presumably to take a shit on the sidewalk. People are walking past not batting an eyelid.

Honestly the homelessness here is another level. Big UK citities have issues with homeless on the streets, but here they are like some kind of distopian Mad Max characters, gesturing at things that aren't there and shit, meandering around the well dressed average SF residents. Very strange contrast.

Anyway settling in pretty well here for the induction process. There was a big presentation from the CEO, thought I might spark up some small talk with a couple of guy's who joined in the lift.

Me: 'Heading to the CEO presentation?'

Awkward response: '...I'm delivering it.'

'Straya, cunt.
Taking my boy to Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus tomorrow, as part of his tenth birthday present, so looking forward to it, it’s going to be great, however, my boy has been throwing up all day and is currently at the doctors.

Whoever is in charge of Paddy Power's marketing campaign has a great sense of humour. Just seen the ad for the new loyalty campaign and realised it was Rhodri Giggs doing it haha.

Has anyone ever come across a Chinese person who doesn't work in a take away or a restaurant? I'm just wondering because I've never seen a Chinese builder or bartender or milk man etc.

Obviously they'll have all that in China but I mean here you just don't see them doing those sort of jobs.:think1

True that. You never see a Chinese funeral either despite there being absolutely shitloads of them living in every town or city. Actually just remembered that mate said a Chinese woman owns a massage parlour across from where he works.

I'm surprised none of them attempt to own their own bookies. The cunts practically live in them.

Possibly. He is a man who has sold a business for over 1billion USD, though.
No matter how much money any man may earn, always remember he pulls his pants down, whips out his cock and balls and proceeds to squat around presumably taking a shit on the sidewalk just like the rest of us.

Work in takeaways and socialise in bookies it seems.

True enough. Although in fairness, the only blacks i ever see working over here are taxi drivers and the odd checkout girl.
