The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football

Recommended Posts

the coalition will last full term, i'll guarentee you that, when the coalition was put together a bill was passed called the Fixed term parliament bill, taking away the PM's ability to decide when to dissolve parliament and unless the bill is revoked (which the lib dems would never agree to) then elections from now on will run the full term of 5yrs and 3 weeks. labour may choose to revoke it if they regain power.

 

hope that helps

 

i'm a poker guy too. :) i know snap.

I think that we are going to see a lot more independents getting into office because, let's face it, all 3 major parties are rubbish.

 

I kind of agree, do you think the Galloway election was the start of things to come?


I'm afraid to say ring of fire is about as far as my card games go.

 

We call it circle of fire but I guess it is the same thing? I have got very drunk playing that a number of times!

I agree they will last the term but i wonder if they may have done irrevocable damage to their reputations - particularly the lib dems

i'd like to see more independants getting elected, its a more direct form of democracy where you elect a person rather than a party who call the shots generally, MP's nowadays rarely fight for their constituency and go along party lines, having independents obviously means they are more likely to vote/ bring up PMB's that will benefit their constituency.

IF nick clegg had gone in and stood up for the liberals principles they would be in a far better position in the polls, i'd argue they may be close to being ahead, however he proved to be weak and if it had been big vince who was party leader they'd probably be in a more influential role or have more seats due to another election.

 

IMO the best thing the liberlas could have done is after the AV vote failed was to challenge the leadership of the party (lib dems can do this after 1 year after the previous election) Nick clegg was unpopular within the party at the time and probably would have lost and one of the `orange bookers` would have been appointed.

Bull*** is a card game where the players aim to get rid of all of their cards. Normally played with 3 or more players it is often classed as a party game. It is a game of deception and lying. A challenge is made by players calling-out (normally the name of the game) but whoever is wrong has to pick up all the cards in the middle.

 

 

that sounds like a different game i used to play, think we just called it cheat (playing with gran again :D) - all the cards would be dealt out and you had to say what you were putting down. i.e "i'm putting down 3 '4's". you could either tell the truth, or lie to get rid of more cards, or cards that didn't follow the card that had been put down by the player before. so you could actually be putting down a 3, a 5 and an 8, whilst saying you were putting 3 4's down. then if anyone thought you were lying, they could accuse you and you then had to pick the cards up if you were lying. if they accused you and you had told the truth - then they picked them up.

 

is that the same as the one you were on about? (sorry for the long description :p)

 

sh1tface was where you got dealt 3 face down cards, 3 face up cards and a 3 card hand. then other things happened... and the eventual loser was called a sh1thead!

Having never played sh1tface before, after that incredible description, I feel I can pick up a pack of cards and be a master! Thank you :D

    • Even with no rumours today, I still back Warnock to bring in players he would actually use for his style and system. I’ve just watched (I know late to the party) Sunderland til I die season 2 and their January window episode.   Firstly, It amazes me how the chairman splurged money on Will Grigg when he could have used that extra money to get Maja to stay. But secondly, and more boro related was that the manager at the time Jack Ross didn’t really fancy Will Grigg, but the chairman bought him anyway. Surprise surprise, Will Grigg struggled and didn’t fit in to how they play.    How does this relate to Boro? Well I think in the past, we have bought players who don’t fit a style and system for a manager. I think Warnock won’t sanction players to come if they don’t fit in, and this is obviously a huge positive moving forward.    Put it this way, I’m more confident that players will come to us for Warnock and work for him as opposed to a Boro under Woodgate. You can already tell the mentality of moving on quickly and not begging for players had an impact.    Why did Woodgate start Gestede vs Swansea, knowing that Gestede wouldn’t want to play in case he got injured. Warnock commands respect and Woodgate was seeking it. Big difference in mentality that I think gets overlooked with Woodgate and the recruitment side. 
    • Warnock's deadline for players to decide has nearly passed.
    • All pritty quiet today, other than the wingy debate, hopefully in prep for an influx of new signings
    • That was actually scrapped in Denmark as it’s impossible for the stewards to tell if people live together. Just too hard to handle 
    • August 3rd 1974 Boro 0 Carlisle United 1 A dull and disappointing Texaco Cup game between two teams who were both contemplating life in the First Division after being promoted together a few weeks earlier. In fact they'd meet twice in the top flight in the next fortnight or so. Boro became frustrated after several early saves by Carlisle keeper Alan Ross and too often resorted to long balls that the visitors' tall defenders dealt with comfortably.  It was former Boro favourite Hugh McIlmoyle who created the only goal, setting up Martin to fire home after 50 minutes. All in all a bad day at the office for Boro, with Jack Charlton saying after the game that he'd seen his team work harder in practice matches. In the news - The Tories criticised Labour's manifesto pledge to follow a policy of nationalisation ahead of the forthcoming election, housewives were warned (in a possibly sexist way) that eggs could cost £1.50 a dozen by 1975, Richard Nixon prepared to give a TV address as impeachment loomed in the Watergate affair and three north east lads were arrested in Spain for singing loudly at 2am and fined £1 each (equivalent to 8 eggs, or a decent Spanish omelette). Top of the charts - Rock Your Baby by George McCrae.
