Rimless glasses - agree with you there f0zz. It's never been a good look, I'm a half rimmer myself as they sit better on the nose.
If you could cull anything at the moment what would you choose?

f0zz, without Belgium, we wouldn't have Belgium beer, and that would be a shame.
I'd cull cats. And the owner of the dog who lets it shit on my road.
edit: Actually i wouldn't cull cats. I'd cull cat owners who let the cats shit anywhere except their own back garden.
Dick Everyman - Rimless glasses - agree with you there f0zz. It's never been a good look, I'm a half rimmer myself as they sit better on the nose.
Remember thinking 'these are alright, nice and light, no bulky frame to obscure the old peripheral' then Goran-Ericsson came on the telly and it was like 'Balls, what have I done.'
Not only that, once you put them down you can never 'em again. Have to go looking for areas of furniture that seem a bit more magnified than usual.
Agreed about Belgium, it was just a
Yes f0zz, the benefit of the half rim is that you get half a chance to see them before you sit on them.
There's a night time dog walker who drops barker's eggs on my front garden too. I'm thinking of investing in a watch tower with a high powered light and a sub machine gun -the dog will be spared though.
You know the plastic gloves you get at petrol stations? Keep a pair in your pocket, then if you see a dog owner not picking up their dog's shit ask them nicely if they're going to pick it up. If they refuse, don the gloves, pick it up yourself, and rub it in their fucking face.
Pavement Jockeys (cyclists) have to go.
That'ul do for now. The world will be a far, far better place sans the above.
Hey - Mac users never did anyone any harm.
Slugs are food for hedgehogs, but at the moment the slugs are winning.
Wasps are pollinators.
I'd just cull all people. I don't like them very much. Apart from Rikkor - he's a safe distance away.
Petrol station gloves idea fantastic VCG - on the subject of petrol stations I'd cull anyone who sits and stares impatiently at the wheel of their car while I'm filling up or worst still when I'm inflating my tyres. There's never a fucker around when you start and then someones sees you doing it and thinks "that's a good idea I think I'll go and fuck that person off and stare daggers at him." Gets me really vexed...
...or the spoon who returns to their car having paid, then decides to perform an interior mini-valet including glove-box rearrange while you wait fuming behind them, muttering 'typical' at the other pumps that have long-since become vacant.
Dick, good to know your position on rimming.
This is dangerous talk. First they come for the wasps... but before you know it it'll be mass genocide again.
I say no to culls in general. Not that I care much about badgers. Shoot the stripey fuckers for all I care.
Bonjo is culling culls, the hypocrite.
Teenagers with boom-boxes in their souped-up Astras that drive past my bedroom at one in the fucking morning.
People who use 'foreground' as a verb.
People who use 'party' as a verb.
Anyone who 'works' for an IT helpdesk.
All of the staff of Currys, Dixons and PC world.
All of the shareholders of 'E-on', their families and acquaintances.
The inventor of automated answering systems.
Finally, on a personal note, my mother's doctor.
Bees. Jumping around thinking they're so great, snooty stripey bastards, stealing all our honey and attacking flowers, I'll teach them a lesson in culling that they won't forget in a hurry.
People on tv dramas etc
People on TV dramas who always manage to find a parking space outside their destination, and when they come out it isn't clamped or blocked by some delivery truck. Like in Spooks when they have some "security alert" and manage to get from their MI5 base to somewhere in south london without having to spend half an hour stuck near Elephant and Castle or the Vauxhall Gyratory.
That could be a theme "After complaints, the BBC is required to make driving scenes in future London dramas (Spooks, Luther, etc) more realistic"
-having police chases held up by a taxi driver ignoring the sirens and going "only 5 minutes guv" for half an hour
-it never taking less than 45 minutes to get between two points in London.
-all scenes involving the tube to have the circle line out of action along with 50% of the escalators, plus the gate you want to go through always opening in the wrong direction.
-having Big Issue vendors, Specsaver staff and Chuggers harass pedestrians during the on-foot chase scenes
The owner of 'EgoSeal Windows' (name changed for legal reasons) in Stork-on-Tramp. If that little bastard phones me one more time, I shall have him 'glazed' with honey and spit-roasted.
Rikkor I knew I could count on you to sniff the subtlety of my responses out..unless everyone else is just being polite - cull the bastards!
People who say 'sweet' or 'cool' instead of yes.
Owls, especially the huge ones you get in North America. They're unnecessary.
Shitsu, totally agree about marzipan. Oh, look! Tray upon tray of stuff that completely tastes like crap made to cunningly look like pieces of fruit.
Sorry, though. Can't agree about owls. They are very cool.
John Bercow because he has no redeeming features at all and is an irritating little twat. Really irritating.
Also my ISP and my broadband keeps dropping out like barmaids' boobs.
I can't believe I left Chuggers off my list - hat tip to Steve_l for the reminder....
* Parents who openly tolerate foul behaviour from their offspring
* Parents who refuse to contribute to their child's education, saying 'its the schools job' to listen to them read
* Dog owners who see a lead as a straightjacket, and therefore let their badly-behaved dogs run free at every opportunity
* Religous fundamentalists who insist on animals being slaughtered according to 2,000 year old best-practice, and therefore sufferring unnecessarily
* Religious fundamentalists who insist on children being indoctrinated into their religion before they are old enough to choose for themselves
* Fat people who still fill their faces, and their children's faces, and expect me to pay for their healthcare
* The Lazy Scrounging Jobless Workshy (as opposed to those unfortunately without jobs who are doing something about it).
* The casually Rascist and Objectionable Elderly, who use a quotation of their age as some sort of 'get out of jail free' card
* Charmless Petulant Scots who refuse to accept their naturally subservient role in life
* Officious and arrogant bastards with a clipboard and a badge
* Cheats at board games (' Go on, let me have another roll'- "No gran, you cheating bastard.")
That about covers it for now. Hunourless, I know (have you come to expect anything else) but cathartic.
I can hardly bring myself to say this, but I agree on every single point Id.
(I feel so dirty.)
Shop assistants who ignore me totally and shop assistants who get in my face as soon as I step through the door...
Dick, years ago there was a jeans store in town here where the staff were infamous for their dogged determination to jump into your personal space the instant you walked into the store.
It became a weekly challenge to try to get from the front of the store to the back without being accosted by staff.
I only managed it once, and that was because we swarmed in as a group.
The following drivers: In chronological order.
This morning. The one who 'honked' a pedestrian so that he could then drive his car to straddle the pavement over a double yellow line. There was a cash machine adjacent; so that's probably all right then
Minutes later. The van driver who drove so far on to the pavement that his vehicle completely blocked the route for pedestrians. I must confess that I drove on, round the next roundabout and back again just to see the outcome. It would seem that he'd been shamed into moving by a woman in an electric wheelchair, who had no option of taking her life in her hands by skipping out into the road and running round the thoughtless sod's vehicle.
This evening. The numerous twats driving solidly down the centre lane of the M40 with no traffic to their left. My good lady did remark on my having no moral authority, given that I was driving in excess of the speed limit. But I don't think that's relevant. Much.
I'm going group shopping from now on Jeni! I went into Barclays last week to the self service statement machine - couldn't believe it when a member of staff looked over my shoulder to ask if I needed help! What bit of 'self service' didn't she understand?
Wayland, I had the same problem with W****erseal. The calls stopped immediately when I emailed them and threatened to report them.
Our number is ex-directory and we're registered with the TPS so they must have got the number from an old mailing list sold on to them.
They had already had a court order against them. I suggest emailing them and quoting the Enforcement order dated 26 June 2008 (Data Protection Act) whch expressly forbids them to make these calls. Tell them if you receive any more cold calls you'll report them to the Information Commissioner and OFCOM.
