The block of flats? It's next to Antler.

I must have just walked past it a billion times and never spotted it.  Where those big bold coloured walls are, near the underpass to Pilgrim Street?

Ran out of liquitabs and can't be f***ed to go to the shop. If I do a wash just with water, it'll do a passable job, do you reckon? Polyester and jeans.

Trying to copy some of my mums old photos for a photo book for my dads 70th next week. Would it be better to copy them by taking a picture of the photo on my phone or using a scanner?

Why, when you're watching something in your native language, but it has subtitles in your native language........you still read the subtitles  ?
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.

I watch everything on Netflix with subtitles. I don't know why, I just like to read them.

I watch anything I really care about with subtitles. Comedies etc it's better to be in the moment, but dramas have subbies for me.

My gf has subtitles on, does my head in. I just end up reading them. I can hear, why am I watching words instead of the thing I'm meant to be watching?

My dad's been mostly deaf since he was a teen, I've grown up with subtitles on for everything. Looks really weird now if I see anything on TV without them.

It's next to impossible to to not read.  After a certain age/reading comprehension level, you can't not read words. They're never just a line of letters anymore.

why are successful musicians invariably skinny c***s to a man?  thinking mostly of rock bands like, and i suppose the answer is booze/tabs/drugs but you'd have thought there would have been more successful fatbands over the years
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire
