Unfortunately our cities weren’t razed to the ground by retreating or punishing armies, so we have to suffer on with 100’s of years of history rather than live in a utopian concrete palace like Coventry.

TwyJ 1 point

You fucking what? I beg to differ that my hometown is a utopian fucking anything.

Its like the decrepit shed of the country.

I love this city with all my heart, but fuck me do i hate it.

Also we do have some history still, like our shell of a cathedral, and we are the "city of culture" whatever that shit means.

Have a great day buddy!

Both of those movies have great reviews

TwyJ -2 points

Where does it say they have to be negatively received?

Alexovechkin08 2 points

Based off of the title of the post, I assumed he was referring to movies with negative reviews. There wouldn’t be a reason to ignore the reviews to enjoy a film if it gets really good reviews.

TwyJ -2 points

I mean you arent wrong, but it does just say reviews, so it isn't really invalid but plus i guess its just him asking what films people think everyone should watch.

Have a good day matey!

Vodka soda with a splash of cran will either be an obnoxious white girl or a slender gay man. IPA drinkers are bearded dads who want to ask 15 questions and try 15 samples. Long Island drinkers are almost always garbage, and bad tippers. There is an entire demographic of female drinkers that don't care what it tastes like as long as it is pink or blue.

I defeat the IPA drinkers one, im a 20 year old guy that cannot grow facial hair to save my life, but i am balding and grouchy.

wow those look awesome! I can't believe you have 3 cool bikes like that, you must be pretty into them. They look good now so I'm excited to see what they'll look like once you restore them! are you pretty good at mechanic-type work?

I see, well once you get that motivation, act on it! Maybe you could even make them in celebration of your birthday. I'm sure all the people who saw your post would love to see that!

TwyJ 2 points

I mean legally i own 5 but one i wrote off because i drove into the back of a car at 60ish mph because they stopped and i really didnt and i have a lot of photos of that accident, and then the other one i legally own was just ruined so i scrapped it for my own safety, and yeah I'd say im decent mechanic, got a lot of stuff set up to work on bikes in the garage, ramps and all the tools ill ever need.

I will indeed because i do enjoy cooking but i just dont at the moment, and that would be fun to be fair, and i wouldnt think they would but i could still try.

warriorsatthedisco 2 points

oh wow, you must work a pretty decent job to afford those. Stay safe on them! And yeah I bet you're pretty good if you have all those tools n stuff!

I know I would, and I'm pretty average so I bet others would like to see them too!

No, i had a bit of inheritance, and spent it on them, except for the GS500 i got given that.

Yeah, I never got this for larger businesses. Like some carriers will charge you a convenience fee to pay by card or some of the big chain gas stations here will tack on a $0.40 charge to use your card. Or hell, some larger local businesses will outright refuse you unless you spend over $10. I get not wanting to get boned in processing fees but for larger businesses that can definitely pay it I’d call that just a cost of doing business.

Otherwise you risk just alienating your customers and sending them elsewhere where such a limit doesn’t exist. Those gas stations I mentioned? The competitors across the way will gladly take your card, have cheaper prices and don’t charge you a fee. And they have lines going out the driveway.

TwyJ 17 points

Its a European wide law (inc UK) that you cannot charge a convenience fee for using a card now, i mean some places here in the UK do have a minimum spend, but its usually only a fiver.

theinconceivable 5 points

Are you allowed different prices for cash vs card? Here that’s common with gas stations, labeled as “5¢ cash discount “

TwyJ 2 points

No, thats something ive definitely not heard of over here, its an interesting idea but i think everyone here would complain about change.

When I crashed my motorcycle on the Long Island Expressway going 65 MPH. As I flew over the handle bars I said to myself "well, it's been a good life". Wear a helmet tough guys.

TwyJ 10 points

Also make sure its a DECENT helmet too, because i had a shit helmet and crashed into the back of a Renault scenic at about 60mph and my helmet cracked and fucked off.

my helmet is the one next to the lampost, we are both where we landed no one had moved anything because this is about 15 seconds after i hit the floor i started taking photos.

pulling a strange face as the paramedic arrived

after someone brought the helmet to me, you can see that the padding in the front is gone, i dont know where.

Paramedic putting neck brace on, apparently she wasn't allowed to get in the photo, so she took one for me.

The photo the paramedic took as im strapped to the stretcher.

after getting home from hospital, my face didnt take too much of a beating for landing without a helmet on it.

The damage to the helmet.

The front wheel of the bike, this is the only photo of the bike i can find, it was pretty badly damaged in general, when the front wheel was on the bike it was basically touching the back wheel.

Moral of the story, GET A DAMN GOOD HELMET because im lucky to be alive, you may not be as lucky.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but one would not eat an egg that's been fertilized, right?

TwyJ 1 point

I feel like thats not an egg anymore and more of an under developed chicken.

Reisz618 2 points

You’d technically be correct about what’s inside the egg but it’s still an egg, and if the thing is collected immediately after the hen lays it, there’s not a ton of difference.

TwyJ 1 point

Well, yeah, i didn't mean it was going to look like a chick, but you are right.

Handling tires is more dangerous than anyone realizes. People screw around in so many ways with tires that they never should. Remember, if it can hold the rubber away from the rim when you hit a bump in your nearly 2 ton car going 60mph, it is holding a LOT of pressure.

TwyJ 2 points

Well yeah people forget that having 30 or so psi in a wheel isnt just 30 pounds of pressure, its 30 per square inch of the tyre and thats scary.

I'm proud of him! The hardest part is done, getting them to respond is difficult, I'm in the same situation.

But! He has got one, just make sure he gets there early, well rested and looking on point! He has no reason to stress out now im sure he has the charm to win them if he meets them!

The pair of you can do anything, just stick at it! It will be hard, i wont lie, but you have more than most and that is support from your loved ones.

Life isnt easy to start with, but he has a foot in the door, just make sure he is calm and colleceted, but not cocky and im sure he will get far!

Good luck to you both! And please pm me how it goes when you find out, i genuinely do care!

Im sending all the love i can right now - Jake :)

she is special she does need a lot of work but honestly, we want to give her the best life we can, and she will be when she calms down as she ages, she is going to be worth the hassle.
