I thought I was the only one! It’s my greatest shame. I just hate the taste of it.

Except that we actually have some of the healthiest teeth in the world. Certainly better than the USA. We’re just not that concerned over an odd crooked tooth or if they’re so gleaming white, they glow in the dark.
I just did #23 today. I basically listed a number of excuses she might want to use whilst constantly saying, ‘I understand if you can’t come’. I actually really want her to come, I just didn’t want her to feel pressured into it.
This is something I’ve thought about before, how Brad Pitt doesn’t make typical movie star movies and yet is unquestionably a movie star. I think it was on one of the Oscar roundtables that I heard him say his favourite film he did was The Assassination of Jesse James, which not a lot of people saw but which I thought was an excellent film. I then realised that aside from Mr and Mrs Smith and the Ocean’s trilogy, the majority of his films are not the standard Hollywood fare (in terms of blockbusters and rom-coms). I think his looks had something to do with it but now it’s his image, especially with his high-profile relationship. He’s one of my favourite actors anyway.
Great article by the way.
#2 Booyah, bitches. I was the first in my entire year to get mine. I, of course, didn’t know the protocol so I just told every fucker who could hear.
#4 Embarrassing, but no one told me how it worked and I was given a single tampon by a friend the first time I used one, instead of getting a box of them, so no instructions. I stuck the whole thing up there. The whole fucking thing.
#6 My best friend when we were extremely drunk and sitting in a park.
#11 I didn’t start wearing a thong until I was 18 because everyone said it was a permanent wedgie. Wearing one for the first time was the most delightful thing I ever experienced. Sure, you get the wedgie after sitting down for a while but my god, the freedom of a thong is unbeatable.
Everything after that I have yet to experience.
At the time I was pissed off because I just wanted to sleep but afterwards I saw the funny side. I know I would’ve been doing the same thing to someone else if they’d fallen asleep before me. The pizza boxes pissed me off a bit because I smelled like pizza when I woke up.
I’m confused. Was this just for cities in the US? If so, why is Frankfurt up there?
I don’t even think you’ve lived in Europe. There are maybe two or three things here that I find accurate.
Jurassic Park is one of my favourite films and I recently read the book. It answers the majority of these questions. As for #9 - er yes, it was necessary. Very necessary.
I really think the Paralympics one deserves it, if only for the impact it had alone. I remember every time it came on TV I just stopped what I was doing and watched. Everyone was talking about it and I think it had a lot to do with getting the country so excited about the Paralympics.
Spoilers will be still be out there whether this is taken down or not, so why does it matter?
I got shit stacked on me after I fell asleep at a party. Kept waking up to them putting stuff on me, knocking the stuff off, falling back asleep and starting the cycle again. There were a shit-ton of post-its, a viking helmet, a motorcycle helmet, loaves of bread and at one point, a fucking TV, among other things.
When I was about 6 years old, me, my brother and my mam were walking home from school, we got to the house and I shit you not, there was a fucking pelican sat on our roof. In a little town in Greater Manchester, just sitting there giving no fucks whatsoever. I can’t remember what happened after that but it’s one of my clearest memories, seeing that bird on the roof.
That wasn’t the only mention of the egging incident, they kept referring to it and making jokes about it as the show went on.
Richard and Adam were my favourites and I was very impressed with how professional they were.
God I love everything about cricket. I used to be scorekeeper for my brother’s local team because there wasn’t a girl’s team. I didn’t mind though, I played with my brother and my cousins in the park on the weekend.
You want our news to be more like news in the USA? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
He said on Jonathan Ross that he doesn’t want to do it.
You just saved me having to type all that out. The redhead one was fucking stupid too, there are an abundance of blonde, brunette, black-haired, etc. villains.
This is literally the only mention of Glen Coco in the film. We don’t even see his face and yet, he has become a legend.
Why does this medical fact come from? Just because our teeth our not perfectly straight and gleaming white, doesn’t mean they are bad. In actual fact, Britain is said to have the best dental hygiene in the world, we just don’t get obsessed with having the odd crooked tooth.
I don’t see the connection between having a sense of humour or not, and being religious or not. I was genuinely asking whether this was a joke post because I couldn’t come to a conclusion on whether it was. I was saying, if it’s a joke post, it wasn’t very obvious which is why people are pissed off. If it isn’t a joke post, then these are the arguments that the author is using? Seriously? I still don’t know whether the author was trolling.
My favourite word that was added to the dictionary is ‘Omnishambles’ from The Thick of It. Such a great word.
Was this supposed to be a joke post? I’m honestly asking because I think you could’ve come up with some better arguments than you did, coming from an Atheist. If it was a joke post then I think you should make it more clear that this is obviously a joke. The whole thing just seemed incredibly juvenile to me.
Black Books and The IT Crowd were both Channel 4.
I love Vin Diesel. I have ever since I got a present when I was 13 that consisted of The Fast and the Furious, Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick on DVD. And I’m glad you mentioned the diversity of the F&F cast, it’s always something that I’ve loved about the films. I guess you could say that the F&F series and the Riddick series are guilty pleasures, if I was guilty about it, but idgaf. I think Vin appeals to a lot of ages. I mean, I’m 21 and my mam is 50 but we both bloody love him. I don’t even really know why. Anyway, we’re both dying to see F&F6.
And please. Can you take out the Page 3 entry and replace it with something actually worthwhile, like the NHS or something. Come on now.
Would you call Westminster Abbey a museum? I wouldn’t.
Yeah, I’m British but I highly doubt anyone would say I was speaking ‘properly’ in my Geordie accent.
I’ve only got to number 3 and I have to comment.
YOU DON’T HAVE YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS?
Isn’t it Bill whispering in Scarlett’s ear and not the other way around?
And they won!
Saoirse Ronan is so fricking brilliant. Nominated for an Oscar when she was what, 13? Totally deserved as well, she was amazing in Atonement.
The full English breakfast is one of the greatest joys of life. I’ve never been more excited as when I went to a place in London called The Breakfast Club, and I had a full English for my dinner. Black pudding is one of my favourite things in the world.
When I went to Ghana, our host served us bread and omelettes. I’m telling you, they were the most beautiful omelettes I’ve ever had.
Excuse you, I always have black pudding with my full English and when I have breakfast out, they always include black pudding. Doesn’t a full Irish usually contain white pudding too? That picture there doesn’t, so I would say it’s a full English.
This one uses wandless magic.
I’m also 21 and I vaguely remember having to use floppy disks.
Olivia’s second speech was brilliant, I’m waiting for the BBC to put it on youtube. Romola Garai’s overshare was hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing.
And I LOVE Clare Balding, national treasure that she is. And Peter Capaldi should win every award for The Thick of It. Fuckety-bye.
Quinto and Saldana were on The Jonathan Ross Show the night after this aired. He played the banjo.
I once went browsing in River Island and realised that every single piece of clothing I was wearing - and I mean every single piece of clothing - was from River Island. My jeans, my t-shirt, my coat, my shoes, my bag, my hat, my scarf, my gloves and even my underwear and socks were RI. That was a particularly strange moment.
On another note, I’ve drooled over that BAFTA dress since I first saw it.
