    Do you know my fellow Britishers, it really is not obligatory, or incidentally remotely funny, to say in this country after a couple of good days weather-wise:

    "Oh that's our Summer over then".

    This is not even funnier, though you clearly seem to think it is, when you say it in March. Could you very kindly desist from this humourous trope.

    Or in other words, shut the **** up you braindead morons.

    Social media "analysis" on TV masquerading as news.

    Just **** off with it. Please. Cannot think of anything more lightweight than some bloke spending ten minutes reading out trending hashtags and putting up some halfwit Youtube video on TV.

    Yeah spot on. A good friend of mine, she started seeing a guy who did this. My mate and I advised her that the guy was bound to be a knob. Proven correct ofcourse

    Trending hashtags is an interesting observation. Used appropriately it says something, dunnit

    Well, I've lived in a few countries and visited many, but there's always been one person in every country who's asked me; How can you live in Australia, they're so racist or Aren't all Aussies racist

    Seriously **** off. Every single country.

    Anyone who treats Q&A as a serious show.

    Apparently these people exist.

    This would actually be interesting if done properly though. Social media real-time analytics can show some very interesting things. It's just that whenever you get it on TV it's a very watered/dumbed-down version, the findings of which are interesting to nobody with a brain.

    Though when done poorly you get media outlets quoting GIMH....

    Pretty sure somewhere pulled posts from one of our Ashes threads once, and GIMH's was one of them, I'm sure he'll remember the full story

    Yeah 06-07. Aussie paper running a story on the Warne/McGrath retirements described me as 'Devoted pom GeraintIsMyHero' and quoted me

    Brumby and wpd made the independent in 2008 too. Pretty sure BB has the link in his sig.

    Brumby got quoted under two different usernames from two different sites in an article I think. That was classic.
