Giving up social media
at 16:20 6 Jan 2019

Has anyone who uses social media tried giving it up, or tried having a break from it? By social media I mean Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Mainly Facebook and Instagram though. I deactivated my accounts a few days ago and am interested to see the effects.
First thoughts is a realisation of how addictive it is, and how dependent I had become on it in terms of checking it whenever possible. Wake up, make a cuppa, check Facebook, etc...on a train, in bed...it’s so easy to start checking it and spend 10-15 mins staring at the screen.
I was personally getting tired of the ‘perfect lives’ that people portray on these, as well as having lots of ‘half friendships’...people who would like or comment on a status but would ignore you in real life, for example. I’m really glad that I didn’t grow up with these things, I dread to think what it can do to the mental health of kids/teens...and even adults.
It’s amazing how much ‘free’ time I’ve found. Plenty more to spend on PS of course.

I’ll start. John Bishop. Was dragged to see him in the Grand years ago, nearly fell asleep. Just a few hours of him telling very mundane stories.

Never done it myself, can’t imagine being out of the house or a family house for Xmas dinner, although some really enjoy it. What do you do?

Chaos. I don’t know how regulated drone flights are but I suspect it’s not as strict as it should be. It should be illegal to fly drones above a certain altitude in my opinion.

What an uninspiring choice.

I'd have gone for Andrew Neil or Paxman. Yes they can be dicks but I think it would be more challenging and entertaining.

I knew Tim and it was a horrible crash that has left two families devastated...no excuse to drink that amount and drive at that speed without a licence though. Horrible situation.

7th place, 1 point outside the playoffs and 5 off top
at 16:58 10 Nov 2018

A very positive season so far - I think more positive than many could have imagined. A refreshed, young squad (inevitable after PL relegation) who have stepped up and given many good performances. Some blips, but such is life.

What a competitive, exciting league this is. I think the playoffs are certainly something that we can aim for, which I think many (including myself) thought could be beyond our reach in this rebuilding year.

Good job Potter, good job team.

Woman to marry a ghost
at 11:32 31 Oct 2018

https://www.thecut.com/2018/10/british-woman-is-tying-the-knot-with-sexy-nameles

A woman who's been 'in a relationship' with a ghost for years, and is now marrying him, was just on this morning. They even gave a space on the sofa for the ghost to sit on.
You could tell that the hosts were taking the mick all the way through, yet the woman was deadly serious about it all. The woman obviously has a mental illness of some kind - it's a bit uneasy and cringing to watch as they snigger away at her!

Not quite sure why the other thread was deleted as it seemed to have been sufficiently moderated.

Anyway...hopefully we can continue this discussion without further silly posts. No further news in terms of the fate of the passengers...
