Loading this topic, I inadvertently clicked on the first page:

Just feels something of an honour to still post on a thread, which has apparently been running for 12 years. :p

So, hmmmm, was shopping recently... is it just myself, or does anyone else find that if you buy tinned tomatoes from a supermarket, the tins are invariably bashed?

It's as if someone in the storeroom holds a grudge and awaits the delivery, armed with a hammer.

Why was this never a commercial success?

As with chefs, such as James Martin and Rick Stein, I believe in butter as an essential ingredient - and spare me the, 'Oh, it's not good for your health...'.

I would be first in the queue...

Awesome gadget...

Sounds great until you remember the state that Pritt sticks tend to get into with all the dirt and flufy crap around the end. :O

We don't seem to have discussed Kevin Spacey's in-character video defence--and then he was charged the indecent assault and battery.


What on earth was the logic?

Must say, good or bad, the man can really act.

Well that was weird.

Found a good comment at YT:
This is like the video version of OJ’s “If I Did It” book...except creepier.

That was a drag, losing one of my favorite actors. I sometimes wondered why he was so good at playing a flaming asshole.

I think it’s an epic failure of judgement. It looks like he’s playing his ego against public opinion but it just looks crass.
