  1. The "Hijacked Thread" Thread

    It's a shame it wasn't better. At least we still have the radio and television series'.
  2. The "Hijacked Thread" Thread

    Happy Towel Day froods! Here’s what the Hitchhiker’s Guide has to say about Towels: A towel is just about the most massively useful thing any interstellar Hitchhiker can carry. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you — daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course you can dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough. More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have “lost.” What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

  4. Shoot The Wall (A.k.a. The Rant Thread)

    Sorry, I have to agree that black pudding is lovely. I'm not a huge meat eater, but I do love offal. Steak and kidney pud, faggots, sweetmeats, and even haggis.

    As long as there's no singing and dancing in this one, it'll be an improvement over that other one. Shame they didn't do Kim instead though.

    I've sussed it. They're going to have a version of the Glorious 12th. Fans with cameras are going to be let loose in London in the hopes of 'shooting' the cast. It's as good a theory as any at the moment.

    Interesting. This will bear watching. Happy Sherlock Holmes Day!
  9. Benedict Cumberbatch News

    Much more flamboyant than just shrugging it on. The only problem is that it's hard to do in narrow corridors. (Or submarines).
  10. The Language (and travel) Thread

    Funny how things change. Servants used to live in attic, now billionaires do.
  11. Benedict Cumberbatch News

    Bit soon for a Brexit drama yet I think. This will probably be as well received as a shit lolly.

    You are quite correct. Christopher Reeve. :~
  13. Speedy's Cafe - General Chat about anything you like!

    Sad news. She's still the best Lois Lane, just as Reeves was the greatest Superman/Clark Kent.
  14. The Dinner Guest Connundrum.

    And mine is in August. Just saying.
  15. The Dinner Guest Connundrum.

    Tesla and Cousteau are great invites! Ramsay is off putting to me. I would have chosen Marco Pierre-White instead.
