Aye, alright pal, take a chill pill. Parker is a cocky kid. And that will always be his downfall.
See, it could go either way. It would be an actual tense watch, maybe they even film 2 endings like Clue / Who Shot Mr Burns and the DVD randomly chooses betwixt them!
But as for Supes vs Bats…surely the only difficulty Superman would have is in *not* killing Batman.
Certainly from what little I know of Superman, he just fucks shit up. Even Abomination didn’t actually stop him ( which was the only Superman comic I read, and some of the Steel / Superboy spin offs that came from that )
My job….I pack things. I put things into boxes and send them all over the world.
I used to do it 5 days a week, but the boss cut me down to 3 days to save money. And then down to two days.
I’m routinely not paid when I should be, with my wages going to “more important thing” like buying more stock. Not saying stock isn’t important, but without me…it’s just gonna sit on the shelf, y’know?
Further cost-cutting has lead to us not having bubble wrap. Which you would think you would need, since we’re posting out relatively delicate items to all corners of the world.The past few weeks without bubble wrap, I’ve been routinely getting pulled up because items are arriving damaged.
I’ve been looking for other job, but there is nothing. Actually nothing. My town, Ayr, is dying. The high street is dead, the amount of closed shops is about the same as the open. Offices are closing and laying scores of people off all the time. I know it’s the same everywhere, but Ayr is so small to begin with, it’s quite noticeable. Somewhere like Glasgow, there is a higher chaff:wheat ratio.
“Why don’t you get a job in Glasgow then?" The traveling would suck away all the money I’m working to earn. I’d have to work way more hours, to break even the same as I’m getting just now, because travel isn’t a factor in Ayr. Not to mention I’d be leaving so early in the morning, I’d see Sophie and Katie for all of about 20 minutes and then get home after Sophie’s bedtime at night.
“Why don’t you move to Glasgow?" I have a mortgage on the flat I’m in just now. And no one is buying property at the minute. We’d make a serious loss on selling, and then not have enough money to buy/rent in Glasgow anyway.
Le sigh. Maybe Santa will bring me a squillion pounds for Christmas and I can afford to do the Stay-At-Home Dad thing, writing my cyber-noir Tom-Clancy-meets-William-Gibson-meets-Raymond-Chandler epic novel at night, taking photos on the side.
Every time I closed my eyes last night, I had a new bad dream.
The worst was about me leaving Soph in a public toilets and then me just going about my day, and finding her later on standing at an intersection of a busy road just standing there, crying. And I’m like “Oh yeah, I forgot about you…” And the me in the dream was just not the me in real life. Dream me was acting and behaving in ways I never would, but I couldn’t stop it… I was just forced to see it first person!
I’m really enjoying the book I’m reading just now. It’s a Space Opera / Film Noir…sorta like if Raymond Chandler guest-wrote an episode of Firefly.
But it’s an “epic”. Clocks in at some 600 pages give or take. And that’s book 1 of X. But also, because it’s an epic, there are a lot of characters.
Every chapter it switches viewpoint.
A whole bunch of the characters that I’d managed to commit to memory, well, they all died.
So now I’m left not really knowing who I’m reading. One of the guys is an Earthing and his partner isn’t. But I can’t remember which way round it is. And it seems like it’s becoming an important distinction.
I’m about 15% of the way though ( because Kindle is in %, not page numbers ) so I’m too far into it to start again.
You may or may not know, but in the coming weeks, many Internet Service Providers are rolling out the Governments plan for censoring “unwanted” websites. AKA the Porn Filter.
This filter is somewhat similar to the Great Firewall of China, in that the Government has decided what the people can and cannot view while online.
Because it’s not just porn that they are blocking. The headings of what they intend to block are VERY vague:
alcohol and drugs
personal abuse on social networks
religious and political radicalisation
I mean, who exactly decides what stance is radical? Does that mean any opinion or view that the current government doesn’t agree with? These topics are very open to interpretation to the point that it’s fairly all encompassing.
What can be done about it?
In some cases, you simply need to phone your ISP and tell them you are an adult and you want free access to your pornography. Different ISPs will have different levels of hoops that you may need to jump through.
Failing that, I would like to introduce you fine fellows to Immunicity.
Basically, they are the simplest method of bypassing the blocks.
Check out https://immunicity.org/getstarted for a guide to setting up your browser to do the thing. It’s easy to do.
They will also allow you to access the currently blocked torrent sites, like Piratebay.
Option 3 is to jump to an ISP who are not involved in the censorship scheme.
Andrews & Arnolds seem to be the current darling for this:
Active choice is not a choice
The government wants us to offer filtering as an option, so we offer an active choice when you sign up, you choose one of two options:-
Unfiltered Internet access - no filtering of any content within the A&A network - you are responsible for any filtering in your own network, or
Censored Internet access - restricted access to unpublished government mandated filter list (plus Daily Mail web site) - but still cannot guarantee kids don’t access porn.
If you choose censored you are advised: Sorry, for a censored internet you will have to pick a different ISP or move to North Korea. Our services are all unfiltered.
Is that a good enough active choice for you Mr Cameron?
This porn filter isn’t fully active yet. Chances are, you’re not seeing any difference in your browsing right now, but I’m wanting to put this information out there just now because based on their vague blockable topics, Tumblr seems like an ideal candidate to block.
Hopefully, you don’t need this information. But take a note of the Immunicity name, so that if in a few weeks you suddenly can’t access the sites you love, you aren’t totally blocked from finding out how to circumvent it.
( Despite being the beautiful, talented, excellent man that I am, I’m not actually Tumblr Famous…so…this post night not actually be seen by that many people. But if you see this, and you’ve read this far a) well done, and b) I do’t mind if you pass off Immunicity as your own idea, should the porn filter come up in conversation with your real world friends. Just….spread the world. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it, eh? )
I’ve just noticed that you’re on you tip toes in the bottom one aha! These turned out so amazing!
Ahahahaha. Yeah. I’m a shorty. Even on my tippiest of tippy toes, I’m still a good foot shorter than you!
In my work, I subconsciously stand on my tip toes behind the shop counter. I only ever notice I’m doing it when someone moves behind/parallel to the counter ( we have stuff that people can buy up past the counter ) and when people walk over, I suddenly feel very silly, because I feel like I’ve been caught pretending to be tall!
I don’t know if anyone has ever noticed, because I get all embarrassed and look away or run away hahahaha
