Weekend thread: bangers and mash edition.

If that lad with all the instant mash is about then I may have a business proposition for him; I went a bit overboard buying wholesale bags of Quorn sausages from Farmfoods.

I heard Johnny Depp got his mannerisms so uncannily right that people were asking Hunter why he was doing a Johnny Depp impression for months after.

The film was fine and the book was fine. The first couple of HST books you read are fine until you realise they're all the same and how much he's lying by your third one. Charles Bukowski is quite repetitive like that too.

I heard that collections of his essays, such as Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone, are his best work. I haven't read them to be able to compare, mind.

Today I've made one of my two/three monthly forays onto Facebook, to check whether I've made the right decision in giving up on it. It's still the right decision.

I know social media should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it bothers me that one of my friends is constantly posting things to make it seem like she's in the perfect relationship when the reality is that anyone who knows her well is aware that it's a complete illusion.

I felt sick as a bird earlier so I made the difficult decision to sleep through the FA Cup Final as it didn't seem barfing over. Well, upon my awakening the sickness has gone, but the desire to chuck-up remains.

These are the results you get on FM after you've been at Wrexham for twenty years, but you're too excited about your youth prospects to quit, not actual football.

I guess you're right. At least it's a timely reminder that the majority of what's posted on there is most bollocks.

Other than that, my feed was 90% baby pictures, "I can't go on a day out without posing for dozens of 'artistic' pictures to upload on social media" and one friend who constantly overshares and voices her opinion on everything

I just read that Scarlett Moffatt's full name is Scarlett Sigourney Moffatt.

Am I just a posh cunt for saying it, or does it seem like it's usually lower class parents who give their children these oddly inspirational names?

I'll admit I'm from an upper middle class upbringing. Fine. But it kind of seems like most posh people tend to choose less outrageous names. And when they're outrageous, they're posh outrageous. If that makes any sense.

My own name is Alexander

Like I said, posh outrageous.

In one of Rob Beckett's standup routines, he has a bit where he talks about the name "Rupert". He talks about being invited to a posh friend's house party, and one of the lads there is called Rupert. And Rob Beckett is like, "Don't get me wrong, Rupert is a lovely name. I just never thought I'd meet one".

Personally, I quite like the name Charlotte. Because that was my grandmother's name and she was one of the kindest people I have ever known in my life.

If I ever have a daughter, that's one that I'd have on my shortlist. And I like classical Latin names, like Julia or Felix or Marcus.

I kept a diary from age 15 through to age 22.

It's kind of mind blowing now reading about all the things I did back then. It contains over 1,000 pages of adolescent drivel. Really the everyday things I did any my thoughts on them. I read the first few pages of it a while ago, it starts a few weeks after my 15th birthday.

Looking at it now from the perspective of an adult, for a 15-year-old, I really had a writing talent. It's written in a way that just draws you in, although I don't believe that was my intention back then; I didn't write any of the endless monologues in it that often went on for five, or even sometimes ten pages with that kind of idea in mind at all.

Fascinating stuff really. It brings back things that you haven't thought about in eons, and it then feels almost like yesterday when it all comes back to you.

The Radio 4 series My Teenage Diary is equal parts cringeworthy and fascinating. I think it's healthy to keep a little bit of your teenage self alive. We all need a little bit of ludicrous over-confidence, a little bit of misplaced anger at the grown-ups, a little bit of wide-eyed naivete.

Spent a night in a group of friends who are mostly poly.

As an embittered virgin, I wish I had the confidence and experience of these people. I kept tight-lipped, but it's just such an alien world to me, and one which in way I wish I could understand - not just having one person being attracted to you, but multiple.

I have an unfortanate habit of getting girlfriends who are far too attractive to have any right talking to me. I'm convinced that in a 'poly' relationship she'd be having all the fun and I'd end up embittered.

I'm skeptical about a lot of poly couples. I get the impression it was usually one person's idea more than the other's, and it seems so contrary to human nature I can't help but imagine there's a lot of bottled up jealousy in a lot of them. I'm not saying there aren't couples who are perfectly happy with that lifestyle, but I'd be surprised if the majority were. Imagine you've had a really shit day at work, all you want is to come home and cuddle your bloke and where's he gone? Oh right, he arranged to bonk Sandra tonight. Well, hope he's having fun balls-deep in another woman, I'll just break out the Pinot Grigio and put Netflix on. Nah. Human nature is hardwired to a larger extent that we'd like to think.

That's not really a problem if you've got a harem of soy boys at your beck and call. Get on your poly WhatsApp group and one of them will be at your door in 20 minutes with a bottle of sauvignon blanc and a workable semi. It's like Deliveroo for male fisherperson fukkbois.

This is a group of poly couples who are mostly, if not all, bi/pan. I haven't seen any major relationship drama between them, but that doesn't mean it happens. It just seems like they all get with each other interchangeably. They all talk about it so casually, and the whole thing is just unfathomable to even imagine being a part of.

My girlfriend is poly. From what she's told me it simply sounds like more hassle than it's worth- All the concerns you lot bring up are present even in the most supposedly stable and secure of those relationships, and it goes both ways. When I got with her I told her I wasn't up for any of that nonsense unless there are special circumstances (i.e threesomes), and she happily agreed to be monogamous.

The obvious one is that it can be an easy sausage party for a lass who wants to be a slag without worry, and her boyfriend would have to cope with suppressing the jealousy that she's taken more dicks in a month than he's had fanny all year. But it can also be a nightmare for a bloke who's got three girlfriends and barely has the time to wipe his own arse without having to maintain conversations. I don't know about you lot but I find one woman is sometimes too much, never mind three or more. And then you've got times where normally, you'd simply be the person listening to someone venting their frustrations with a relationship- But it's your own partner bitching about their other partner.

The impression I get is that despite outwardly maintaining the conceit that a poly relationship is a progressive, forward thinking way of preventing jealousy and infidelity, by doing it openly instead. But the reality seems to be that the vast majority of people in such arrangements are actually deeply, deeply insecure. They need the validation of multiple partners, or have some sort of dysfunction that prohibits them from forming a stable one to one relationship.

I'm not saying poly people are all full of shit, but it does seem to be a bit of a fad, mostly enjoyed by hipsters who want to do it as a statement about themselves rather than because it's something they genuinely enjoy. You know. The sort of people who have reptiles, lots of tattoos and a septum piercing.

I'll say it then. I haven't known a single person claiming to be poly who has had stable, lasting relationship/s with other poly people, or people in general. Even with other people who say they're poly it seems that sooner or later it all comes crashing down.

In the interest of fairness, you can say the same about the vast majority of non-poly relationships too.

>The scientific name of the beetle comes from a German collector, Oscar Scheibel, who was sold a specimen of a then undocumented species in 1933. Its species name was made a dedication to Adolf Hitler, who had recently become Chancellor of Germany. The genusname means eyeless, so the full name can be translated as "the eyeless one of Hitler". The dedication did not go unnoticed by the Führer, who sent Scheibel a letter showing his gratitude
