    It is clear that you have firmly held beliefs on the subject of teenage gender identity. I'll ignore the indignant froth and personal abuse, content in the knowledge you're making yourself look a bit silly.

    Thank you for your feedback, which I have carefully considered before ultimately deciding that I'm right and you're wrong.

    Actually, on reflection I didn't realise that the subject of the above posts was still a child. As such, they are entitled to privacy, so I'm hiding the posts. Not exactly quality modding, I admit, considering the posts were left on view for 24 hours and then I bumped the thread to the top again, but I think I'm doing the right thing.
  4. Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Dylan's seminal 1968 album John Wesley Harding was definitely country. Recorded in Nashville with country musicians.
  5. Derby Dead Pool 2018

    A lot of pressure on my two unique picks, Gerard Basset and Kalpana Lajmi, to score for the team this year. Basset was the wildcard - I just thought the team needed a sommelier - so I'm pinning most of my hopes on Lajmi, as well as hoping the Guardian take an interest in deceased low budget, feminist Bollywood directors. Sorry to see long term veterans Ali, Banshees and OoO bow out. Hopefully at least one of them will be back in the future. Thanks to @Spade_Cooleyfor the hard work and a special thank you to @themaninblack for your years of toil.
  6. Notorious groupie Barbara Cope, AKA The Butter Queen, has been killed in a Dallas house fire. She was namechecked in the Rolling Stones song Rip This Joint. I like this bit from her wiki page: Whoever said that romance is dead...

    I'll have you know that there is currently an Archers storyline featuring young Freddie Pargetter dealing mushrooms and ecstasy in order to get his burgeoning DJ career off the ground. Not exactly the soporific fare sought by insomniac pensioners.
  8. Whom Are You Tarring With The Epithet "twunt"?

    1.04 posts a day for me apparently. Tempted to go offline for a couple of months, just so I can achieve perfect symmetry.

    John Perry Barlow, 70, non-performing member and lyricist for the Grateful Dead, is probably someone worth keeping an eye on. This week's Dead Hour podcast* ended with the presenter, somewhat cryptically, asking listeners to keep Barlow in their thoughts "during these difficult times". Barlow's an interesting character - a borderline genius essayist, poet, pioneering exponent of LSD, former cocaine dealer and political activist who, at the height of his lyrical contribution to the Dead, was simultaneously running a cattle ranch in Wyoming. His wiki page alludes to health problems in 2016. * I often wonder if I'm the only person who tunes into the Dead Hour and The Archers each week without fail...
  10. The Rolling Probabilistic Ddp Scoreboard

    That's what I like about the DDP; a concerted exercise in media studies, oncology, physiology, statistics and moral philosophy all rolled into one.
  11. The Rolling Probabilistic Ddp Scoreboard

    I'd put Remigino's chances of getting an obituary as higher than that. I would have thought being an Olympic 100m gold medalist should warrant broadsheet and BBC treatment when the time comes.
  12. Hoaxes

    We've got the Rumours thread, which is essentially the same thing, so I'm minded to merge unless anyone objects?

    The author of that book, Margareta Magnusson, was on Radio 4 earlier this week. I'm not convinced she was being entirely serious and wondered if she was some sort of Scandinavian, Brass Eye style prankster, unleashed on the British public and more likely to fool them, as she's a sincere old lady.

    Paul Gascoigne donates money to disabled Devon teenager, who had the computer equipment she needs to communicate stolen. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/rangers-legend-paul-gascoigne-donates-11838751 For all his many faults, he does sometimes come across as a kind and compassionate person and I hope he manages to defy the DL for many years to come.
  15. Betty Driver Memorial Soapstar Superstar Thread

    Anyone else spotted her potential for the Scrabble thread?
