    WOW! I can't believe how popular my purchases have been. Strange, but funny at the same time!

    Greggs Sausage Rolls have gone up in price in recent years, I can remember paying years ago, £0.60. Now, at current day, they are £0.90 to take away and £1.10 to eat in. I always take away. I can't justify spending £0.20 more, to eat a sausage roll in the shop, when it only takes a couple of minutes, to do so! :smiley:

    Wow really? I'm fairly sure I still pay 60p.

    My last purchase was a £1.30 day parking ticket for uni.
    You live in the North, Chris. Everything is cheaper up there :p

    I'm shocked that Greggs charge 20p extra to eat a sausage roll in the shop. It's like those toilets where you have to pay 20p to use them. Except in those situations I don't mind paying that 20p because I feel sorry for the cleaners who go home smelling of poo and bleach at the end of each day :'(

    You just log in to GTA Online from today and every day until Monday, you will then be awarded over 1 million on the Monday.
    Already contacted them, but I doubt they will do anything. I knew hacking was a big problem, but I had no idea they could get you from within your house, thankfully  though the cages have now gone. They want people to buy shark cards, yet why would anybody when hacking is so bad.
    So I signed in, spawned in my garage, and 5 seconds later I was set on fire and died lol. I just quit after that, pointless to do anything when hackers ruin the game.

    I'm glad you asked, because I've been asking myself that question ever since he posted it! While we're on the subject of McStanley's purchases, I'd also like to know the exact cost of the 1x Greggs Sausage Roll he purchased on that 126th day. Also, how has the cost of a 1x Greggs Sausage Roll varied over the past 3 years? I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that I'd like to see the rate of inflation on this specific baked meat and pastry product.
    Once the ludicrous, and frankly disastrous, price increase of this institutionally British delicacy (which we most certainly did not steal from the French) over these last 3 years has been thoroughly established, I suggest we petition the government to decrease the cost to pre-War levels. After all, the pastry supplier in question supplies the British public with 140 million of these fine rouleau de saucisse per year, and could quite afford to bring them more in line with a working class members salary.

    What say you, your Royal Highness of Moderator?

    No, I want to know that McStanley bought a Mars Milk (338ml bottle) on the 7th May!
    Ok, how about we ask for a detailed review of each purchase as well in that case?

    I'd like to know how the cane molasses and barley malt extract impact the essential character and turbulant viscosity of the 338ml Mars Milk McStanley consumed on Day 126, the year of our Lord 2018, (May 7th).
    Also coincidentally the 218th anniversary of the death of Italian composer Niccolò Piccinni, who brought us loved number 1 hits such as il cavaliere per amore.

    @RevolvingPrawn If you login to GTA online each day you can get over a million. So I logged in to a public session and thought I'd be safe in my garage, then suddenly I was put in a cage and blown up, spawned at hospital and right away the same thing happened again, I know hacking happens but that's the first time it's happened to me, this is why doing that final heist will be hard when we have to do it in public sessions...

    I then create a private session, the cages are still in my garage

    Contact Rockstar support and tell em what happened dude. They might be able to track your session and figure out who did it. They should also be able to remove the cages if they stay there everytime you login lol.

    How do you get over a million from logging in each day?

    Except when Martin is in the car with you urging you to do 85mph.
    I've gotten pretty good at ignoring him when I'm driving lol. He picked me up to go see Infinity War the other night, and there was numerous times I thought we were going to crash :| I don't think there was any point where he did the speed limits.

    I have a red 2012 SEAT Ibiza 1.2 S (AC), to give it its full title! It's a bit slow but it's a great size for me and the fuel economy is helpful for uni, with the air con on I'm still getting around 46MPG across a fortnight.
    WOW! That millage is amazing! Is it a Diesel?
    No it's a 3 cylinder petrol. It's actually pretty bad for most European cars of today, cars around that size now will do mid 50s easily.
    You say that, yet the 3 cylinder petrol engine in mine gets me an average of 45.6. Although it does have a little turbo, and I like to accelerate hard so I can hear it :p

    When I'm on the motorway cruising at 70 in 6th gear though, I'm getting 80+mpg which is pretty cool.


  8. Infinity War last night, and finished off season 2 of The Crown tonight.

    For all you Marvel fans, it's more or less what you'd want from an Avengers movie. Some funny moments, some good fight and battle scenes. But I think the first 3/4's were a fair bit better than the last 1/4th.

    Completed A Way Out last night with @RevolvingPrawn Fun, hilarious and the ending, the ending was awesome. We laughed through most of the game simply because my character had such a big nose, that one thing kept us highly entertained. From start to finish the nose puns kept coming :joy:
    I found a screenshot of the character you played ;)

    I know it is, but yeah it's amazing. The HDR is decent as well when watching HDR videos, not on the same level as my TV, but for a phone it's great.

    I don't care about them, just thought I'd try it out :)

    After my mum looked at my phone she is now upgrading to a S9 from a iPhone 6. She didn't get the Plus model though, but the 9 still has a much bigger screen than the iPhone 6.

    Yep I set the screen edge notification to red, I also bought a red & black theme lol. 
    So because I don't know a damn thing about HDR really, does a video have to have the ability to be HDR, or is it just something the screen does for any video? And if the video needs to have it, is there stuff on Netflix and Prime video with it?

    I actually was gonna go for the standard S8 originally cos I figured it was a big jump in screen size from my XZ. It wasn't until I went in to Carphone Warehouse and actually held both that I knew it had to be the Plus :p But it doesn't feel massive, does it? It's kinda the right size, not too big and not too small.

    Haha, figures you'd go for red and black. I'm sticking with stock for now and satisfying myself by changing wallpaper now and then.

    @RevolvingPrawn Holy **** dude, the Samsung S9 Plus is insane! The screen is unreal, I love that when I get a notification the curved edges of my screen go red. The animated emoji are hilarious, this is me apparently 

    https://twitter.com/TheRealHughesy/status/981165051288608771?s=19
    Yup, same screen on my S8 Plus ;) The detail and sharpness of it is really something else right? And yep, the Edge lighting looks really cool. Did you set yours to red? I've got mine set so that it takes the colour from whatever app is notifying.

    Thought you didn't care about the animated emoji's ;)

  12. It's getting deeper :p 7 inches at the back door now and it's still coming down heavily here, how about there? Gonna be interesting to see how deep it is in the morning.

    My cats won't even go out in it dude, I've had to set up their old cat litter tray (the poo smell is so bad). I chucked one out the back door earlier and he came running back in and did this on the tile kitchen floor :)

    So I'm snowed in. Where I live the road isn't gritted. I've already watched a few of my neighbours try and fail to get up a hill to get to main roads. As I walk with crutches, maybe I could put some ski's on and use my crutches as poles :joy:
    Even with traction control its impossible, this is the first ever red weather warning Somerset has  had. Its meant to get even worse at 3pm. At least I'm not stuck on a motorway for 15 hours like some currently are.
    Not snowed in yet for me, but I did leave work at 1pm today to try and avoid the worst of it. Luckily my commute only has 1 uphill part and it's gradual so no problem :p Probably no work tomorrow either with how bad it's set to be overnight. I'll have only worked a day and a half this week after having Monday and Tuesday on leave!

    Felt this whilst I was sat at my desk earlier. It kinda felt like my chair shook and moved slightly, a little like when you go over a small wave in a boat, and then I noticed some of the stuff on my desk was rocking back and forth.

    I had no idea what to think of it until I just saw there'd been an earthquake in Wales lol.

    You have to get past the first couple weeks for the itching to stop. Once its in, your good to go.
    I went a week without shaving once (forgot my razor when I went back to my student accommodation last year). It was the itchiest week of my life, but it grows a bit faster now.
    There's a length gap where there's no itching. Like DK808 said, first couple of weeks and after that it'll stop. You'd be able to grow it to about 3/4 of an inch with no itching. Go past that though and it weirdly starts to itch again for a while :p

    Something else I've found is once you've been through the full itching phase, if you shave it back down to stubble length and grow it again, the itching phase gets easier and easier each time you do it.

    I've got a decent collection going now, the free car everyday for doing the certain distance helps a lot! 

    Almost finished the Evil Within 2 now as well, for anyone into survival horror.. i'd definitely recommend it 
    Have you played Resident Evil 7, Luke? If you liked EW2, then Resi 7 will blow you away :p
