I don't think you even know what the words you are using mean. There is nothing provocatively controversial about thinking you are a useless tosser.
|>>|| No. 18900
That post wasn't mine, but I too fail to see how calling someone a tosser is "edgy". Maybe if you did it in a church but I don't think anyone's gotten spiritual about .gs yet.

I live in Gloucestershire and that's the sort of hilarious crime we get around here, always with a headline dripping with sarcasm. Things are often stupid but rarely malicious. Bloke even looks like a supermarket worker I know.

>aggravated vehicle taking
Could there not be a better name for this? "Aggravated" sounds like there was fury or dissatisfaction involved. The act seems more... Cavalier.

It looks like the BFG from the 80s animated film. My money is on some scallies taking him from a local scarecrow festival and throwing it in the river.

Even better, people who willingly moved next to an airport complain about aircraft.

They're just ungrateful cunts. I would fucking love to live at the end of a runway like that.

I find the sound of passing trains and aircraft very relaxing. I could probably end up saving a packet when it comes to finding a house. Not sure about raising kids there though.
Any parents here who can chip in? How well do babies/infants get used to background noise?

I posit that an A320 within 100m of your back garden is more than just background noise.
|>>|| No. 19109
This is fair. If you worked at the airport, you'd be obliged to wear full ear defenders that close to a spun up plane, let alone one under taxi power. It's hard to get across just how loud that is - at 50m even an idle load would cause hearing damage within minutes, so I'd expect if you sat in your garden all day 100m or so away, or even just had your windows open while planes are held idling there constantly you'd be exposed to hearing damage for sure. It's very much the equivalent of having someone working with a jackhammer two doors down, it's that level of noise and vibration.
I get that they made the choice to move next to an airport, but it seems when they did move there, they were next to a dead taxiway. There certainly should have been information available to them about the plans or potential for that taxiway to become live again in the future - my grandparents live within sight of the local airport and they get CONSTANT updates via letter about the plans to extend the runway there, and that's been floated about for ten years. Typically the local council owns an airport at least partially, so there's no excuse IMO. From my experience you do get used to background plane noise, but they look like they live much, much closer to a live taxiway than anyone would be reasonably expected to be comfortable with. I'd be interested to know when that house was built - I'm guessing during the time that area of the airport went unused, because there's definitely supposed to be regulations on this sort of thing.

Well, granted. I'd need to know exactly how close is 'close', considering all noise drops off in an inverse-square relationship. 100m would rather be taking the piss.
Does anyone know off the top of their head what the minimum Euclidean distance commercial planes legally have to be from a private residence?
|>>|| No. 19112
I'm not sure it's ever measured by distance, more dB levels. I reckon there's probably more security considerations than comfort ones when it comes to houses overlooking airfields, you could quite easily ground a plane with a cricket ball and a good arm from your second floor window if you lived that close to an airport.

It could get a little too close for comfort.

This just reminds me of the gag in Man to Man with Dean Learner, about Merriman Weir having recorded his album at home while he was living right next to a motorway.
"You can hear a major accident on the B side. One track is just honking"
"And has the remastering process removed that at all?"
"Nah, if anything it's louder."

It seems odd that someone would record the assault and damage they were causing, even if they felt it was justified. The second fly tipper seems remarkably casual about the fact his mate is getting wrestled and a fence post swung at him, too.

Yeah, there's also no original source on the clip, which apparently happened in Essex at midnight yesterday, and there isn't much noise to be heard from a tractor slamming into a transit van, indeed no one seemed to notice the tractor at all. All I could do was check the weather in Essex at that time to see if it was raining like in the video, and as far as I can tell it wasn't, but it was foggy with 98% humidity, which might cause rain-like conditions I suppose.

> SCARLETT Moffatt and her mam Betty have donated two 'tickets of the century' for a Spice Girls concert to be raffled off for charity.
>The TV personalities have given away a pair of tickets to see the 1990s British pop megastars at Sunderland's Stadium of Light on Thursday, June 6.
It kind of still seems a bit of a stretch to me to call Scarlett Moffatt a "TV personality". TV something, yes. But personality? And her mum - what has she ever done besides sit on the livingroom sofa on Gogglebox, mainly because it was her daughter's springboard to an also-ran TV presenter career?
I know I am being a slightly unfair cunt about Scarlett, but I just never really understood how somebody with modest talent like her got to be on national television.

I think the problem here is that you see "being on the telly" as something prestigious, as opposed to anything that actually matters.

You mean Ibiza Weekender isn't prestigious?
What's the name of the fat poof again who acts as the host on Weekender?

A decent agent really helps. She'll be good at her job too, which is actually quite important to TV people, because a dingbat who mucks up every shoot they're on isn't worth the hassle, unless you're maybe Russle Brand for that couple of years a decade ago, and she's inoffensive but not in a Matt Baker way, except for that one time he wasn't when we all thought he might kill David Cameron live on television. Scarlett Moffatt also has two-million Insta follwers and a further 660K on Twitter, overlap notwithstanding, so half your press is done for your show right there. Richard Madden only has two-hundred-thousand more Instagram followers and he was one of the most famous, and fuckable, GoT characters and was in last year's Bodyguard, a TV show so popular the director-general of the Beeb probably had to take anti-depressants just to make his erection go down. The kind of shows Moffat appears on don't have nearly those programme's costs, so the ratio of free-press to budget is likely far higher for Moffat. I never saw the Streetmate reboot, but the one with Divina McCall from before 9/11 happened looked like it cost however much the sandwich order for the cast (of one) and crew (of maybe four) was.
Anyway, the point is she has broad appeal, just not to greasy internet weirdos like you and I, and her background doing normal jobs like working in Asda probably helps because she's unlikely to be a delusional fame-monster who thinks they're too special to replace. She recently made back-to-back Tweets that would appear to support this pair of conclusions too.
Thank you for reading my short essay on why Scarlett Moffatt is richer than a Texas oil baron, and became so in a window of time shorter than most people spend at university.

A confused "crust-omer" opened a loaf of bread only to find the bag was full of crusts.
Timea Ganji was hoping to make sandwiches for her children's lunch when she made the unlikely discovery.
"It's not funny first thing in the morning, when you have half an hour to get the kids to school and there's no time to get another loaf," she said.

Pane is italian for bread (or a type of bread? I don't care), and if this place wasn't full of fucking italians, we might have got the French word for bread which is literally "Pain", but no.
|>>|| No. 19241
I'm reminded of when we had French exchange students during secondary school. One of them wondered why there was a band called House of Bread, apparently frog DJs on the radio were translating House of Pain to Maison de Pain. This being when Jump Around was a huge hit and being played all the time.

Well then he was at least half right in posting it in this thread.
