    *RUMOR* Holloway vs Ferguson for LW interim title

    He's moved on to new pastures I'm afraid. I don't think he was enjoying the aforementioned toxicity so much. Quite a few folk have quietly moved on in 2019.

    The irony is also that accusing people of being an alt is generally ironic. If you're a loyal subject of the Queen though I'm willing to overlook your shameless thread bumping and give you a warm welcome. Don't let these septics drag you down.

    That was what my NoCake alt was for.

    Sober's request

    You sure it's nothing to do with merged threads? I think you should read the whole of idyb gsp mcmega merge thread to test this theory.

    Politics thread

    It's a great word and is used as a term of endearment for a 'mate '. 'Alright me old mucker' is a fairly common greeting.
  7. The fitness thread is one of the few consistently positive threads on here, so in honour of the man himself I'm going to kick start the 2019 one. Purpose is to write your fitness goals and keep some kind of a track plus a bit of mutual accountability. Maybe this is the year you want to run your first marathon, or break your bench press PB? Perhaps you're hoping to lose a bit of weight, gain a bit of weight, or just get back into regular training. This thread is for the athletes, the fat, the thin, the fit, the healthy, the unhealthy - even poor saps like @Eclipse76 who can only deadlift a measly 3x their body weight. Let's have your contributions. This thread changes lives. This thread saves them.

  9. Wrestling's a key part of MMA, but i hate fighters who do very little with it other than hold "position". Wrestlers who try to GnP their opponent into the mat, or throw them like a rag doll are entertaining to watch. Who doesn't like a Rampage power slam, for example? But dudes hitting a takedown in the last minute and lying there to steal a round are the worst.

    You'd like it here mate. There's plenty of good moose-hunting around here. Mate of mine at work goes out every weekend.

    Yep. I've basically got a job for life now. Kind of explains why everyone is at least 30% lazier over here than in the UK....yet somehow it all seems to work.

    Meh. Strangers on the internet arguing with each other is generally more interesting than politics tbh. I just have an affinity for both you and 12er, so it does start to feel like mom and dad arguing. I'll let you guys work out who's who in that analogy.

    Reply to my post about worker's rights in Sweden. I find 12er and Cashflow squabbling most distressing. I'm pretty sure that a thought-provoking debate about socialist mainland Europe will calm things down.

    So here's a bit of compare and contrast for you regarding getting rid of employees. I've recently had to hire someone in my offshore team to do a load of stuff that a guy working here in Sweden was doing. I assumed he was moving on to something else, or had got another job, but it turns out he's just been doing a really crappy job. So I assumed he'd be getting his marching orders....but no...turns out that here you have to demonstrably perform poorly in 3 consecutive jobs for 6 months each before you can be dismissed. So you can be hot garbage for 17.5 months, do a couple of weeks of hard work and you're okay. I'm all for supporting the honest worker from corporate greed, but they've gone far too far the other way in mainland Europe. Lol, when I left my previous job, it was taken on by a woman based in Texas. There was one guy in the team who she decided wasn't up to scratch and just fired him. Unfortunately, he was based in Holland, which is even more protective than Sweden. She thought she'd have to pay him his notice period (4 weeks)....ended up costing the company 3 years' salary!

    Most Liveable Cities In Europe

    Japan and new Zealand are awesome. Haven't been to Australia yet but it's on the list. I always take these surveys with a bit of a pinch of salt as they look at stuff in a far too broad a sense. Cities that score badly on crime, for example, wouldn't necessarily put off ex-pats because you'd just live in a nice part of town. Good healthcare is probably a factor you look for when you're older but it didn't cross my mind once when I moved abroad. Also... Dublin is totally overrated. Belfast >> Dublin. Change my mind.

    How do you guys feel Ben Askren will do in the UFC?

    That's Cole's favourite wrestler. I knew it.

    Nope. It's a one way bet. I am totally ambivalent about Cain.

    What manner of shameless thread - bumping is this Moe?? You remind me of a guy who used to post here. Tell us about your eyebrows please.

    If Cain wins you have to change your AV to the letter C.

    Lol... when your best attack is the one where you lost a connection half way through then we've got problems!
  23. Seeing as though the nerds are getting pippie about me posting in the gaming thread I thought i would start my own. Any others welcome if you're giving and active. We're going to war twice a week. Current clan: SpartaUK75 Tribal Fury (me) - Leader Encya (wife's brother) - Co-Founder and elder. Sacked as co-leader for not reading messages and being the worst war leader ever This is Sparta (me/Greek kid with goats) - Co-Leader Baguette (mate of Kylo's) - Co-Leader Teemu (UFC fan Teemu) - Co-Leader Chirrut (Kylo's brother) - Co-Leader BatDaddy (UFC fan BDD) - Co-Leader Kylo (arrived from Assassinators) - Co-Leader Chewie (Batdaddy's mate, from Assassinators) - Co-Leader KK (works with Chewie) - Co-Leader The Arrow (Batdaddy's alt) - Co-Leader TUF (UFC fan Rustled_Jimmy) - Co-Leader Crangs (UFC fan Crangs) - Co-Leader TSU (UFC fan TSU) - Elder Max (irl mate of mine) - Elder Littlearmy (Max's missus) - Elder Matt (my painter) - Elder Shimi (UFC fan Genki) - elder ChrisK (random, but good guy) - elder Old V (former leader of assassinators) - elder Umbreontk (random from global) eVaporeon (Umbreontk's brother) CJ (UFC fan Smooth Criminal) Young Savage (Teemu's nephew) Daft Vader (Matt's alt) Nyte (UFC fan Nyte) Brandon (colleague of Chewie and KK) Shi (former member of assassinators) Nickobar75 (irl mate of V) Orin (brother-in-law of Chewie) Winterfell (just a GOT fan) RobMD (Chewie's hubby) Just V(Old V's alt) Adam (former member of assassinators) Mimikh (KK's mate) Honorary members: Juice (UFC poster Juice). Occasionally wars BKRandySavage (????). Joined and then disappeared. Some say it was Patster....others say it was Banham's mate. We just don't know. Mascot: Omoplatypus, living his coc dreams vicariously through the clan. Top 5 Wars (in no particular order) 13 out of 14 first attacks were 3 stars. Comfortably beat a clan with 3 guys with infernos v our one. Matt and kk both got 3 stars. The one where their th10 needed to 3 star crangs for the win. 12 l5 dragons descended with fury...and parted like a wave under the onslaught of his newly upgraded air defences. He lived. We won. The one where neither side wanted to do the last attack. Their top guy brought lavaloon to bats with 10 seconds to spare. With 4 seconds to spare winter unleashed mass dragons on their th10 bristling with infernos in a yolo attempt. Both attacks were one star. We won on damage. . crangs defending x4 to save a potential war losing 3 star YOLO 2 star on #1 KK hitting the game winning 3 star Top 2 players (Tribal and Cox) get a grand total of 3 stars between them. War leader Chirrut thinks screw this, I'm gonna 2 star a max TH10. TUF follows with a 2 star on the number 2, but they still only need 5 stars to win from two attacks by a TH10 on Crangs/KK. 98%, 99% and one uninstall later it's over and we've won by two stars.

    It's entirely possible. Might even be a Kylo alt with that dodgy internet connection.
