  • So I'm waiting in for Parcelforce this morning, and need a shit.  Check the online tracking and he's still about six miles away.  "Plenty of time!" I thought.

    No.

    Upon the very first plop, there's a knock at the door.  Course there is.  Sod's Law, init. :/

    Panic ensues.

    I stand up, pants adrift, thinking how can I make this look like I'm not mid-shit?  Open the bathroom window to lean out, bottle of domestos in me hand like I'm just doing a bit of cleaning!

    Genius, me.

  • Yea he wasn't even called slimer in the film IIRC.  Think that came from The Real Ghostbusters cartoon that followed.

  • Dabz:
  • See, slimer being the *cartoon* aspect of the originals worked for me, he had character, I always related to him as some ghosty dog... He was his own little thing. And now they've decided to "cute" up Baby Yoga styleeee Mr Staypuff, cos thats all it is if you ask me. So yeah, agree, not really taken meself with that trailer, and, like someone mentioned in the youTube comments, I hope this is a "dream" sequence in the film, but you just know its not.

  • "hot fire" ... yes, there is no "cold fire". So ... "over fire".

  • Derron:
  • very odd marshmallows ... not growing when over hot fire... surely CGI...

  • And I don't know why the shoutbox does THAT, either. My day's already ruined.

  • Ghostbusters Afterlife trailer just dropped and part of me has died inside.  This looks like utter, utter dogshit. :(

  • I think Niki Lauda would say that's enough.

  • 28 seconds from impact to escape. [link]
  • April 07, 2021, 11:11:37 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • Hmm, not what I saw.  He was unconscious for that.  He would have blacked out pulling those G's for a start.
  • April 07, 2021, 10:42:16 PM
  • GfK:
  • Nope.  Just 28 seconds.
  • April 07, 2021, 10:38:16 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • His car was cut in half and he was in a fireball for minutes.
  • April 07, 2021, 10:33:39 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • Is wasn't quickly though, was it mate?...Everybody thought he was gone...I've never seen anything like it.
  • April 07, 2021, 10:32:29 PM
  • GfK:
  • I don't think even that would have made much difference if he hadn't been able to get himself out quickly.
  • April 07, 2021, 10:28:55 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • Yes, and modern flame retardant gear!

  • Fair to say Grojean wouldn't have survived without the halo.
  • April 07, 2021, 08:44:02 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • In those days they had no chance.

  • Watching Senna for me.

  • Saw that live - traumatised the shit out of me for days after. Major flashbacks to 1994.
  • April 07, 2021, 07:44:04 PM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • Ouch!... Watching the Formula 1 series on Netflix last night.  Superb.  Last night there were behind the scenes on the Grosjean crash...Emotional but thrilling stuff.

  • GfK:
  • (and the £900 was after I'd done the diagnostic leak-off test by myself - it would have been well into four figures if I'd let the garage do it).
  • April 07, 2021, 12:31:12 PM
  • GfK:
  • Eek.  Had injector problems on my Mk3 Mondeo - turned out three of them were bad (one VERY bad), and the remaining one was in the brink.  Had all four replaced for a gnat's cock short of £900.  :(

    Sold the bloody thing after it let me down yet again on the first day of a touring holiday around Southwest England.

  • dawlane:
  • Gfk: I know how you feel. This month it could be a toss up between paying the car insurance in full or at some point getting the bloody thing repaired as it looks like a diesel injector is about to fail. The car insurance will cost a lot less that the repair.

  • FFS, bad sectors on one of my NAS drives.  Why does this shit always happen when you're low on £££? :/
  • April 07, 2021, 10:22:44 AM
  • Steve Elliott:
  • Yes I like the clean lines of untextured polys too.  Very smooth shooter.

  • Tell ya, if I get one more email from holiday firms asking which places in a list I'd love to go... I'm gonna round house kick this monitor right into the neighbours bog over the road... Not sure they've noticed, but... I CANNOT GO ANYWHERE!!! :/

  • Dabz:
  • @Derron... Weather is mental isnt it... I think you Germans do get it worse then us mind, as in, the cold, so, I cannot grumble! ;)

    @Dave I ate a Greggs pie yesterday, in a t-shirt, jumper, padded coat and bobble hat... And I was still brass monkeys! :D
