    The Inbetweeners

    Part of me would love a follow up like a reunion just to see what the Character are up to as adults but it would be crap and I don’t want it to ruin its legacy. It could have gone on longer than it did as a series but they went out still on top and it’s much better for it.

    Jovanovic - Voronin - El Zhar look upon my works ye mighty and despair!

    Would/wouldn't

    May as well call this thread time is a cunt. No point in posting pics of people 30 years apart. Surely it should be about border line options where there is some room for debate.

    Rate the last TV Show you watched

    Yep exactly what I thought and why it doesn’t get an 8/10 the quality of that acting is hilariously bad.

    just finished squid game and some terrible acting aside I enjoyed it. A decent concept, messed up in parts 7/10.

    This would be interesting. If opposition teams simply sang his name, and held banners condemning the Newcastle regime The Saudis would obviously try and get it shut down ASAP but what standing would the authorities be able to use to shut down free speech? I guess the answer is “how much” the Saudis would be willing.

    Newcastle’s take over, will certainly mean there’s no value in the transfer market and therefore we will keep our powder dry until the summer of 3032.

    Resilience (The ability to bounce back)

    It is tough out there and I appreciate I’m very lucky. But a few of years ago I had a little ‘crisis of confidence’ due to a number of things. It’s nothing compared to what some people have to deal with and it all felt very trivial. but everyone has their own battles and I used to put push mine to the side as I didn’t think it was anything to complain about until it got a little much. It’s ok to accept that you aren’t 100% sometimes and try and do something about it. @cochyn had it right up there it’s not about getting back to where you were but accepting that experiences shape you and moving forward from there. You can’t turn back the clock but you can control what you do next. what helped me was working on my self more. I started to meditate and to be honest that really opened up a load of stuff for me. It feels pointless when you start and it’s really hard to quiet the mind. But I found a really good group that did guided meditation that used music, movement and breath work (it sounds awfully wanky but it worked). I met some great people but it’s also made me much calmer, I don’t get as frustrated as quickly and I actually like myself a lot more. I recommend meditation to anyone and that doesn’t mean just sitting in silence it can be achieved a number of ways. Breath work, movement, music even colouring in or drawing have medative qualities to them. In terms of building resilience the meditation was great but so was just simply moving, I started walking a lot more (especially during lockdown) and the best bit is getting away from screens and the constant flow of information. That was a real game changer for me. It’s too easy to be connected and flicking through the same few apps that reinforce a false view of the world where everyone is doing amazing and having fun but you. What you have to understand is it’s just a curated view that isn’t real or the constant doom scrolling that is the news. Those two together also helped me get to the point of actually being motivated to properly working out and I found that exercise not only helps the body but works wonders for the mind too. Do it groups, do it alone whatever works best for you. this ended up meandering a little but there are numerous ways to help build resilience. There’s some good ted talks and some great podcasts on this kind of stuff. Sometimes the first few steps are the hardest. If I had to sum it up, it’s accept the challenges you face, understand it’s ok to work on them and try to do something about it. Doing nothing will just result in the same outcome that got you there. So what have you got to lose?

    THE Sopranos thread

    Agree, I do like the scene where Paulie is talking Tonys ear off and he thinks it’s just a noisy neighbour in his dream. i also liked the panic the family and how Silvio stresses about being boss. Basically any bit that isn’t Kevin Finnerty.

    I’m glad we managed to win the league and CL when we did. football was ruined by money a long time ago but it still felt like you could do something with a fair wind. Now it’s just who has the deepest pockets. If Newcastle spend like city the league is going to be very difficult not win not to mention the fact that it’s another set of spoilt twats to deal with.
  12. There’s nothing traditionally breakfast on it for a start. Lettuce? Chicken dinosaurs? Rice? That is pure anarchy.
  13. Imagine getting hit by a bus and that being your last meal. I’m also not sure what this is doing on a breakfast thread. In fact I’m not sure what this is doing in any thread let alone it being repped. Were people just impressed by the audacity of it?

    I reckon they should let Bruce spend a Billion quid see what he really can do.
