Resurrecting this thread because I think I've just watched the greatest episode of TV I've ever seen in the finale of the current series.
The whole series has been brilliant.
It made Grown men CRY!


(click to show/hide)

I was initially disappointed by the CGI, then I remembered it was just a TV show not a blockbuster movie. 
Pretty damn good CGI for a TV Show.  Better than Strictly that the Wife watches.  Their CGI was garbage.  Looked like 3D Jaws in BTTF

I can't make head nor tail of this proposal and for that reason I'm out.

A dream, something to ponder over rather than the present cluster ****!

I occasionally have huge vivid dreams. This one involved what seems to be a doctor Who adventure.

Anyway titanic but irrelevant battle with 'evil' and we win. Fast forward to end scene.

We are congratulating ourselves then we are informed that what we did altered the path of the Sol system about three to four billion years ago by about the width of an atom. Now rather than passing relatively harmlessly by a dead black hole system the earth is headed, in the past, directly for the event horizon. We fail, humanity will never have existed.

This is portrayed in dream very effectively by a "god scale" Airfix style box containing a kit depicting the battle between the Tardis and the black hole for the earth. The entire two systems is included as well as a Tardis. I could and did pick up the box easily so the question comes to mind, was the box, like the Tardis, bigger on the inside than the outside?

unfortunately at that point I woke up, so never actually got to the end. Obviously though we won again, the earth is still here...  :ptu: :ptu: :ptu: :rofl:

The reason we ended up with congestion around the ports before Christmas was companies were trying to get ready with no help from the UK government. At the moment Dover is not full, mostly because few drivers wants to risk going.

This is not going to get any better soon. UK has some extra supplies in but how long will they last?

We're seeing the beginnings of problems here in Northern Ireland. Dpd, hermes and several other couriers have stopped delivering here. That's already causing major problems for some retailers.

A friend runs a courier firm here that deals with palletised freight and a system is in place only for single items. Since new years he has been unable to move goods to GB

I've worked from home since 2007, and the major thing for me is I can no longer gloat to friends about it! If I had to commute to Belfast daily in my 730d, it would cost about £20/day. That's a huge saving in monetary and carbon terms

personally I hope WFH is proven and remains more common, reducing travel will help co2 emissions

What happened.

Boris "we surrender give us a few fish."  :( :(

EU "there you go, sign. Oh and services, meaning 80% of your trade, isn't covered. Our exports are all in there. You still have to follow our rules or better. More negotiations later."  :ptu: :ptu: :ptu:

Boris "fine." :(

EU "now drop your pants and bend over like a good little bitch."
