    Stone Roses to reform?

    Did they ever make much dough? They were naive with Silvertone and that embarrassing first manager, then spent a bomb recording a second album and split before fulfilling the 5-album Geffen deal. Ten years time it'll be Oasis reforming.

    Stone Roses to reform?

    I'd listen to the demo's on the Legacy Edition, the band are tight but Brown's vocals are that of an X Factor reject. He could have been reciting the phone directory for all I cared as it the hook of those songs that got most people (often within the first 20 seconds).

    Pointless, they were pretty shit live. Just after a payday.

    Use of Whip in Horseracing

    There's pain as in a pinch on the arse and pain as in bullfighting. The horse/whip debate is a bit like the fishing one. I think the new rules for flat racing is 7 strikes, that's acceptable to me as Max Moseley could easily take more...

    You'd put 10s of thousands out of a job and the horses would just be moved to Ireland, France etc. Rather than try to hide an issue it's best to face it and resolve it.

    It'd be interesting to see a no-whip National (not a race I like) but it might also end in worse carnage.

    No, they stop horses that get distracted by the crowd. Even 'the flat' isn't flat and horses will veer off with natural undulations. It's fine if you're on the rails but a 16 horse 6 furlong sprint might be dangerous. I'm not sure what a ridden-out no-whip race would be like. Certainly some difficult horses would never get to race.

    Whip is needed to steer some horses, some will veer all over the shop and a dwarf on top wont stop them especially when you consider how short they ride. The problem is overuse by some jockeys. Personally never liked national hunt and only ever bet on the flat.

    Noel's solo album

    It's awful, an album to buy when you're old and have no passion for music. It's everything he was once disparaging about; epically bland.

    Paul McCartney. Is he a tit?

    I don't think he was ever 'cool', just once out of The Beatles he was laid bare and his cheesiness (that Frog song being the ultimate cringe) became apparent to all. He seems an everyday sorta guy, like watching your dad trying to dance at a party and unwittingly embarrassing himself. Whatever, he and Lennon were the perfect match. He gets a lot of unwarranted shit for not being Lennon in personality.

    Best Gangster Film

    I'll go retro now with Brighton Rock (the original).

    Steve Jobs Has Died

    He left his first wife and child on welfare, whilst he himself was moneyed. Not heard much about him being philanthropic apart from closing such activities. Maybe Murdoch needs to hang out with Bono.

    Steve Jobs Has Died

    As somebody else said, Apple and IBM/MS shamelessly robbed from the Xerox Star. Fact is that Apple have the financial R&D clout to develop existing ideas and are very savvy at hiring good developers. Now Jobs has passed on, technical evolution will still continue.

    Steve Jobs Has Died

    Even sticking an Apple logo had been done, poor Steve, he just put go-faster stripes on the world.

    You giant tool, they're just brands.

    Steve Jobs Has Died

    What did he actually do that was visionary? That others hadn't already created? Far as I recall smartphones, tablets, digital music players etc already existed but in shittier forms.

    Steve Jobs Has Died

    I'd say Berners-Lee changed the world, and no price or logo. Apple just took existing products and improved them.

    A demi-God to shallow consumerism.

    Simpsons to be cancelled?

    The Armin Tanzarian episode was a turning and most now seem to regret using such a lazy plot device. Bumping off Maude wasn't a great idea either.

    Instant cunt identifiers

    People in the boozer who have to check their bbm every 2 minutes.
  22. Commendable and part of the reason I'd rather move unless we can make suitable reparations.
