Hello Sasha

While serving Yorkshire tea outside the department store it is easy to see how money is used as a measuring stick as most people a lot of money will buy more cup of tea (pathetic) they have no morals/ethics they are not good at queuing no common sense it reminds me of a nursery school but it is slowly having a physiologic effect that is spreading through all the contestant.

I have an Amazon Prime subscription, mainly because there where a couple of series I wanted to watch. However, I do find it quite tedious to see what else is available. Not that it can't be found, but that there is so much of it. Perhaps I need to see if there are category filters which might help.

As for on demand services I find these a bit unpredictable. The BBC puts much of its content on i-player and mostly for a month, but the other providers seem to much sparser so it is a bit of a gamble whether a program one can't see live will appear on demand later. I know its often a copyright issues, but I would like all programs to be on demand for a month at least.

No matter how hard I tried, the bar of soap was not going to work until the clear plastic wrapper was taken off.

I wonder how many of you just go onto streaming services like Netflix, Now TV, Amazon Prime or the ON Demand tv services like iPlayer. For me the main advantage is I dont have to remember to record something to be able to watch it. There is a disadvantage in the way I look at the live tv schedules less and less so I miss programs I used to watch when they come back with a new series.

Where there’s a sniff of money they’ll find a reason to keep going.


I once read an article which talked about how much fuel it took to get more fuel eg by fracking. It said as long as there is a profit to be made by capitalist they will want to do whatever it takes. The agreement is that the boards of big companies don't see fossil fuels as a finite resource so they dont question themselves over using say two barrels of fuel to get three barrels of fuel. In fact as fuel becomes harder to come by the process will go up and the profit will continue to exist.

Brexit  >steam< if we end up out of Europe I wonder who the scapegoats will be, we need a Brexit thread.
