Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Get a Kindle. Then employ a slave to hold it for you. :snod:
Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

Easy, he says "Where's Waldo", holds the book up and cp40 can point to it.

Clearly I was born to be a slave.

Why does anyone need something as monstrously large as that? What's wrong with a 32"? ???

Still not convinced on 3D at the moment.  Technology still way behind to where it can become acceptable imo.

You laughing at the size of the clearly rubbish sized television, found it slightly amusing, that's all.

Not sure if its materialism but my scirocco is jinxed, it was crashed into for the third time on monday, think once its repaired and the residuals are high i am going to sell up and by a cheap car for a couple of grand. Its not worth the hassle of having a nice car these days as people have zero respect for others property and zero driving ability.
In the end what you remember are not the words of your enemies but the silence of your friends.

Depends on your shed tbh. Maybe a small shed.

It's all relative anyway, For a decent sized living rooms, where you're maybe... 8ft? away from the TV, you're gonna want something around 50. Hopefully my pidgin maths is accurate.
