This is usually the first thing that pops into my head whenever Michael J Fox is mentioned. Pretty sure I'd going to Hell if I thought there was one.

If I posted every time I'd had a beer...

I'd have this exact same number of posts.

Ahhh, that sounds nice. I need to find people that like to do that sort of thing, because I'd like to do that sort of thing with people once in a bit.

edit: If I posted every time I drank.... wait, ****. That already happens. Nevermind.

It's like you forgot where you were, if this wasn't the internet.

You know when you just sort of let something pass you by when it's happening but become more and more annoyed about it when you think about it afterwards? I had that happen to me earlier.

I went to see the Avengers in Birmingham, and as the train back stopped at the Hawthorne's on a (apparently important) match day it quickly became full of super, super, super drunk West Bromwich Albion fans.

I'm not personally bothered by public swearing. I'm not a father (or in a position of responsibility over children), so it did take a few hours thinking for it to sink in how horrible these football (or "Soccer" for our foreign readers) were.

BITCH

****

BASTARD

WHORE

Were just some of the more friendly word's being bandied about on a train that did have small kids on it as well.

Plus casual sexual harassment of any woman in sight (and my mother was absolutely awesome in that, responding to the old scary drunken man who seemed in charge and his "HAVE A BAILEY'S... WHAT'S YOUR NAME? WOULD YOU LIKE A CIDER INSTEAD? MY BAG IS FULL OF ALL ALCOHOL!" advances with an entire series of elaborate fictions about herself he completely believed. I just buried my head into my Kindle on the grounds it was either that or punch him) and just far too much singing about how Scousers are "****S" for fans of a team that only drew.

God knows what their celebration (or indeed opinion of scousers, did they actually play Liverpool today or was that random hatred?) would have been like if they'd won.

It's a shite situation for train staff as well, who aren't paid enough to get into violent confrontations with punters.

IMNSHO clubs should be obliged to pay for police presence on heavily travelled routes as well as city centres around grounds.

Hope those aren't the final backgrounds but good news Mike Batt's involved.

I've been walking a lot more lately. So much so that I'm starting to get some definition in my calves. Not like definition in a muscular person's legs or anything, but you know, more than it was.

The crowds at sporting events around here have gotten way cruder and more prone to drunken douchebaggery lately. It used to be that they were pretty tame and kid-friendly, but there's no way I'd even think of taking a kid there now.

I blame all those in the generation younger than me!

Same here! I've also been trying to eat better and get in some other exercise as well. I'm still not doing quite as much as I'd like, but I'm already feeling a lot more energetic and I've started to lose some weight.

Not anymore.

But no, pretty much since the team came back, the crowds have gotten progressively worse. Every game I go to, there's fewer and fewer normal people and more and more heavily-drinking dudebros.

It's odd really, I've been in very drunken groups with lots of different fandoms, and whilst we may get a bit annoyingly loud at times football fans (though I suppose this extends to general "Big" sport fans, it's just only fotty has that pull on a regular basis here. I guess it was hockey for Mr. Warcry eh?) who I have ever seen act like that.

The only thing parents would have to cover their children's ears for when surrounded by Doctor Who fans is so as to avoid a conversation of UNIT dating.

I went to magic weekend in Manchester once (loads of rugby league matches in succession) for a stag do and the tram to the stadium was packed with drunk and loud Hull FC fans. Very irritating.

In other news I lost a fight with a roller skate wheel so now I have a black eye, a gash and significantly fewer eyelashes just in time to start my new job .

So on Saturday the UK Sci Fi (or whatever they're calling themselves these days) channel showed a broken up version of the Captain's documentary William Shatner made a few years ago (well, I think it was anyway as I doubt he arm wrestled Chris Pine twice. He does seem to have recorded new links for it though) inbetween episodes of each series.

The first Shatner focused one was bizarre, maybe because the original documentary just had him chatting with each captain rather than giving him his own section resulting in some out of context clips. But whilst Scott Bakula sensibly talked to him about getting the phone call from Gene Roddenberry, Kate Mulgrew clearly wanted a shag.

This resulted in him going on about his "Erotic energy" and her practically flipping herself off as she asked about all the chicks he banged in the '60's. It made me feel quite ill.

Plus, she has an annoying habit of saying "Vis a vie" a lot, as if she thinks throwing a foreign phrase in makes her seem intelligent but she only knows the one.

Certainly seems more... er, alive than Shatner in this --

The reason that some people have back pain is because they're... less evolved.

I should point out that that was me, not Sades. I should've made it clearer what I was doing, but I think it was interpreted in the sense it was meant -- I think having a general chat thread is a good idea, and would rather discussion didn't go in a way that gets things locked and deleted, because there are other people having conversations in it.

It wasn't just you. Dalek was making a joke which I'm going to assume wasn't intended to just be mean but didn't come across as friendly. Most of the people here are a lot older than your profile suggests you are, and more to the point have been talking to each other like that for years. I'd be the first to suggest that it's daft for him to be having a go at anyone else's spelling, because his is far from perfect.

I don't have any problem with putting the starting post back, although again would make the point that people don't really "own" threads because there are other people posting in them, and what we're trying to do as staff is create a place they're able to talk without being disturbed too much by arguments or spam.

edit:

And I should also apologise to Sades for basically coming back to find something I was about to reply to locked, and dealing with it by removing the argument rather than starting a new thread. (Although do genuinely prefer this approach, and think it's a bit less hassle for anyone posting. I'm generally less inclined to delete/lock things than most staff of most forums I'm a member of, unless discussion's gone completely off the rails.)
