NHS waste caused by us punters
at 17:19 4 Aug 2020

My boy has just got back from a 6-monthly eye-check appointment at the hospital.

The place was empty - the staff said they were spacing appointments out now for safety during covid, but get this: That department had 15 appointments booked for today and only 7 of us turned up ffs.

7!

I know people are scared, but picking up a phone isn't difficult, the utter pricks. What a sodding waste.

Just recently reinstalled this and it now comes with a home tab which has some seriously interesting stories collated. personally, I wouldn;t find most of these elsewhere, so a general reccomendation for the browser from me.

Here's a good example:

I guess its too early to draw conclusions, but Interesting: what if the virus took people who were going to die anyway? Gulp, don't be cross - just asking.

Any FIFA 20 experts out there?
at 12:43 6 Jul 2020

My littleun has just lost all his FIFa Ultimate players by doing a squad building challenge and is in bits. I've googled this and apparently, any players you use in a SBC are lost, but that leads to 2 questions:

What's the point of doing a SBC?
How do you improve your sqaud without doing a SBC?

Any answers appreciated - I know this is small suff, but I need a positive to go with 'you lost your players - tough tits son'
