↳Season 3 Episode 20
Just been looking at pricing for the PS4 on Amazon.
£350 for the console doesn’t seem too bad to me.
£55 for a game? They’re having a laugh… And THIS is why the ability to buy pre-owned games matters so much.
I totally agree that the ability to buy pre-owned games matters a lot. There are a lot of people claiming that they don’t understand why Sony got applause for “keeping features we’ve always had” - but there was a serious chance that Sony would go down the same route that Microsoft had with the Xbox One. The gaming community, and those indie retail shops that rely on used game trades/sales to keep their doors open, would have been damaged if those policies became industry wide.
As for the price of new games, whilst I agree that I’d likely wait for the prices to drop or buy pre-owned - £55 for a game at launch isn’t unheard of. The Sega Megadrive back in 1992 was advertising games for £59. I recall South Park on the Nintendo 64 back in 1999 retailing for something closer to £80.
Do British people not drink ice tea as much as Americans do? What do they drink during the summer?
teaBut it’s hot…
there are no other drinks
You see, British people cling to this strange delusion that drinking a hot drink on a hot day cools you down because it raises the temperature inside you, thus making the external temperature seem cooler by comparison.
I have never understood this.
But, then, I fucking hate tea.
Tea is the correct answer in all situations;
- Cold weather = Tea will warm you up.
- Hot weather = Tea will make the heat more bearable.
- Spicy food = Tea will sooth the burning sensation.
- Sick = Tea will make you feel better.
- Sad = Tea will help.
- Happy = Have some tea anyway.
- Thirsty = More tea.
- Hungry = Try some tea first.
- Guests = Make lots of tea.
- Failed test = See answer for sad.
- Studying/Stressing = Tea.
- Being productive = Have tea supply nearby.
- Reading = Drink tea.
- Dehydrated after shower/bath = Make tea.
- Grudge against the USA = Tea.
- Scene from Assassins Creed 3 that causes dilemma = Tea.
- Things that you should never put ice in = Tea.
- Things that confuse British people = Tea with tapioca. Seriously, why?
- Things that you can’t get in London = Nice (non-scummy) tea.
- Things that Ian hates: Tea.

I know its not health related but… it’s my blog deal with it :P
I enjoyed this post very much
I almost didn’t reblog this but that fucking steak is perfectly cooked jesus christ
The Cadbury’s Creme Egg one is slightly misleading. 1971 was the year in which they were renamed, but in it’s current form it was first produced under the name Fry’s Creme Egg from 1963 (Fry’s having merged with Cadbury in 1919). The Cadbury brothers themselves had been producing pre-cursors to it since 1923.
The “Inker == Tracer” argument from Chasing Amy
Sadly, most inkers have probably had someone say this kind of rubbish to them at some point.
Q:Why the hell am I being referred to as 'Vibby?' :/ also please don't put anything up- I don't want to mentally scar people.
I have no idea why you’re being called “Vibby” now, it’s not an awfully endearing pet name either. And there is no chance that I’d ever even consider posting such things. Nothing to do with scarring people. Just that it’d be a shitty thing for me to do.
