I have a slightly irrational hatred of Rob Mcelwee, his mildly condescending manner makes feel a bit angry just before going to bed...just don't need that crap late at night.

Radio weather forcasts are usually rubbish, you want to know if it's going to rain today and they give you a lecture about the possible weather patterns over the next two weeks so that by the time they've finished you've lost interest and don't know whether it will rain today or not.

I would struggle to name a TV forceaster since Isobel Lang stopped doing it, I just look at the maps and ignore what they're spouting on about.

I have heard numeorus stories about her antics at Uni. Let's say that - according to a large number of sources - she is not shy. :lol:

She once forecast the above mentioned "scattered showers that may fall on high ground as snow" and I found myself in a blizzard for 3 hours on a mountain in May.

She's a witch. Burn her :angry:

I like to run my eyes over the shapely contours of the pressure map at the BBC website ...

Couldn't do that - public forum and all !!

Suffice to say she apparently had a lot of fun with a lot of different people. Doing what I couldn't say of course. I am sure you can work it out. A few clues - it was not playing chess and it was not archery.

I like this guy. He gives the impression of being completely demented (look at his hand).

He is demented. There's no doubt about it. He clearly wants be a journalist covering war zones or burning orphanages or something, but instead he takes his pleasure in extreme weather forecasting.

There's something of the 1940s about Daniel Corbett, the way he talks is straight from a Chumley-Warner Public Information reel.

I think he may be a vampire. He always cheers me up though.

Go? Scrabble? Backgammon?

Monopoly????

Surely not Monopoly?

Ah! It was Twister.

I knew journalists were a bad bunch, but surely they don't burn down orphanages ... ?

I can relate to that - there`s always something on the TV that does my head in - it just slams the futility and emptiness of modern life into my face without any scope for respite. I mean, the whole `strictly come dancing` thing was sh1t as was `I`m a celebrity...` and the `X craptor`. The weather report is just the tip of the iceberg. Having said that Channel 5 does some shapely `hoes` to watch, but other than that the box is just damn oppressive.

Has anyone actually attacked their TV? I had a bit of an `episode` when the Lynx `

` ad came and gave it a boot (I have Borderline Personality Disorder and `going off on one` is quite frequent unfortunately.)

I swear adverts are designed to wind people up. I know I should just switch off my TV and do something more interesting instead, but there`s only so much `meaningful distraction time` a guy can do! <_< Thank God for UFO and Space 1999. ;)

I avoid TV channels with adverts, the programs they show are generally intended for the ahem less intellectually demanding members of society anyway.

He is demented, because there's a cold front moving in from Turkey; there's snow in the Peak District, and he bought a right turkey of a house at the peak in the wrong district....

I heard it was cheesefumbling.

Particularly difficult when hampered by a heavy sock, say a footballer's sock, and the cheese is quite soft ... like camembert for example.

Are we talking about Anthea Turner, Grant Bovey and Imagine homes again?

Seen.

But why the hell should I have to watch crappy adverts that interrupt my enjoyment of Space 1999 / UFO?

Yes, I know that the commercial channels require funding and so on, so they need to advertise in order to exist (or so the theory goes), but could they not at least advertise more useful products?

1. Lynx will not get the sluts hanging onto you. If you are a sad ugly git, you will just be a sad ugly git that uses Lynx (and smells of shit) if you buy the product. Bettert to spend your money on a weekend of debauchery in Amsterdam.

2. I do know the difference between a meerkat and the market, thanks. Also, couldn`t they find a British meerkat to do the job? :blink:

3. I do not need a new car - it is one of the most depreciating `assets` you can buy.

4. I do not need to go to Ocean Finance - not unless I`m planning to do a runner, anyway.

5. Virgin Pendolino `wifi` trains can be crashed by flooding the train`s network with a local DoS attack (a relatively easy task with the use of aircrack-ng and a bit of shell scripting).

And so on. You get the picture - most of what is being advertised is either useless, not needed in the first place, or will put you into even greater debt, financing the whole fu<king bubble orgy that is known as `consumerism`.

Ah, one moment - I guess that confirms your theory X-QUORK! ;):lol::unsure::rolleyes:
