    Interesting.

    I was rewatching yesterday (for the umpteenth time) Charlie Brooker's end of year wipes and in one of them he was talking about nostalgia and how in reality the 70s and 80s were utterly sh!te compared to modern times. I was born in '84, so wouldn't know (though have a strange draw to 80s music...).

    Oh blimey, can't remember which one!

    Here's a link to all of them.

    At a guess, I'd have to say it was the 2012 wipe, but I have about 5% confidence in that answer.

    It's always worth watching them though - Charlie Brooker is a damn legend.

    I'm waiting for a massive shootout to ensue between the 'muh freedumbs' types and the police. Sooner or later someone's going to do something really stupid even by Middle American standards.

    That does seem to be what those behind the protests are trying to engineer/provoke

    It would be a fitting way for Trump to end his presidency. I suspect if they were to get their wish it would be the beginning of the end of gun ownership in the US as PDs would rapidly stop tolerating the presence of guns in public at all ever, which probably isn't what they're hoping for.

    Not a nice place to be, that. There's a docu about it. Govt decided to poison their water supply because it made more profit.
