    By definition, no? Anything wilder will be a - possibly embarrassing to mention online. Or identifying. b - sound made up c - the amount of alcohol effects the narrative in telling the story. Like the story where I punched a would be mugger would probably be interesting, cept my memory is "drink, drink, Rammstein, terrible hangover, friends telling the story the next day". There's a few of these where my own memory of events misses out on all the cool bits that happened. But one that is very much A, I guess.. Was having drinks in the student union, when a friend phoned depressed, so I got her down to the bar. 10am. Around 9pm, we head to a nightclub, bumped into girl I fancied who had just split up from her boyfriend, and I thought I was quite charming. Until her and my friend started snogging the fuck out of each other. Yep, my advances turned her lesbian. Go me! Anyhow, that one has a happier sequel. Whole thing led to me being more "c'est la vie" about things, few months later at a house party which stemmed from that night, was slightly tipsy and accidentally introduced myself to a woman who I had completely mistaken for another friend. And that is how I met Mrs Msc.

    I agree. Lets give him a thread. Werner Herzog. Probably the most famous non-US/UK director living*, 77 next month, and given his walking talking meme status, he's bound to provide lots of entertaining updates before his demise. Like that time he got shot during an interview but carried on. Or the time he went down the Amazon and was nearly killed by his own team. Or the time he was President of the United Sta... sorry, that one was Teddy Roosevelt. *I particularly like Incident at Loch Ness, but the joke in that works best if you've seen some of his other stuff. And if you are about to go "Who?" go and get some culture in you FFS. Today's Werner Herzog news? He's in the new Star Wars film. Of course he is.

    Okay, no one raised any objections to any bonuses in the week since. I did a recheck over all the teams to make sure I didn't make any scoring errors and it turned out I did make a couple: For CaptainChorizo I did not adjust the scores of his survivors after Paul Alcock's death. This gives him 10 extra points (5 from Mary Carlisle and 5 from John McCain). For RadGuy I did not adjust the scores of his survivors after Charlotte Rae's death. This gives him 5 extra points from John McCain. These slight adjustments did not effect the dual 12th place positioning of gcreptile and Wormfarmer and I stay true to my word and treat them as the 13th placed teams. Each of them get 50 as a bonus. As for the most interesting team award, far from the first time DDT was chosen for this prize but his eclectic crew of religious figures stand out once more as the most fascinating squad. 30 extra points to him. And so here is the absolute final scoreboard for the 2018 HPDP, many congratulations to Dead Cow on his runaway win: 1. The Dead Cow 425 2. RadGuy 272.3 3. CaptainChorizo 269 4.

    Is that what passes for excitement the other side of the wall now? A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman below replied, “You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.” “You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?” “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help so far.” The woman below responded, “You must be in Management.” “I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?” “Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault!” credit

    It was one of his films that Ian Curtis watched before topping himself, IIRR.

    Yes, I approve! Sadly, I know more stories about him than I've watched his movies. I've liked his penguin documentary though, and his part in a Rick and Morty episode.

    Yeah in fact I find it way more interesting to read About his opinion than reading your nasty comments so

    Wasn't it Klaus Kinski who was offered to be killed by the Natives during the filming of Fitzcarraldo? But Herzog declined because he needed the actor to complete the filming.

    Some tame stories so far. I don't even know where to start or which is better than the rest. I guess the time an approx 21-year old SirC stole the fluorescent light from the Defender machine while in the local college pub, and later he stole an empty pitcher, and he and his 3-4 pals all took a nice piss in it, so half full at least. Drove with it to the center of campus where the Univ President's house was, and SirC in all his black leather clad (think The Clash) glory, snuck up to front door of said Univ Pres home, set the pitcher down, and heaved the fluorescent tube at the bedroom window *POP* and yelled some drunken something or other about Porta John (his name was John Porter, and SirC always joked his name in the phone book is Porter John), and off he ran and off we drove. Had he/we gotten caught, expulsion was the least of our worries. But that is a rather tame story too. Maybe best we leave it right there. SC

    I don’t know, maybe you’ll find them in the same place as the negative points for basketball and baseball.

    Ooh, I didn't know you now lived near Ashford, nor did I know Ginger Baker (possibly) lives round there too. If I see him I'll try to run the miserable old git down (nb: this won't happen until at least 1 January 2020 as he's not on my DDP list).

    do you really think she can die before him…? we ALL won't, but if he does (which he did since a bit of time now) I find it interesting !

    You can find all the thread names by clicking on the category on the forums page. The downside is you get only 25 titles and then have to click for the next page to see the next 25. If you click on this link you can download a pdf of the 2019 names and forum titles all stitched together. The main advantage is you can search for a term of fewer than four characters. I've ordered them by date created. Click 'download' then 'direct download' in the top right hand corner. If you get a pop up asking you to create an account, just close the pop up and click on 'download' again. Let me know if you want 'dead pools' and 'extra-curricular'.

    There are plenty of industry obits, not worried about that. Broadsheet obits (as opposed to a basic mention of the death) often don't appear immediately.
