Stand (not THE Stand (by Stephen King), just A Stand, YOUR Stand)

After being mightily impressed by @meowington’s noble and unflinching stance against the new iteration of GBBO - I was wondering when did YOU last make a stand against something?

Impress me.

Work uniform!

I was hoping for some Shiny Happy People in this thread but it looks like Everybody Hurts.


Got one of these on sale a few months ago:

This is now the cycling thread

Did you win that in the end?

I’ve not worn it yet and I never plan to.

I take stands at work quite a lot. Saying “nah I’m not doing that” etc.

Get it right the first time and it improves your working life 1000%

REFUSED to fly out of Heathrow over Stansted despite the new travel policy EXPLICITLY STATING that we’ve to use BA where possible.

(I pointed out that flying easyJet out of Stansted was much cheaper than BA out of Heathrow, even with the corporate discount)

I’m going to stand up for this comedy.

I make loads of unnecessary stands about everything, initiated an argument yesterday with a mate about whether vitamin pills are bullshit (obviously are I’m afraid).

Unless you’re pregnant or have an actual deficiency, most people don’t need more vitamins at all - even if their diet is bad.
I literally looked this up when I went home and the nhs says as much ffs

Took a stand against doing some work that my boss asked me to that I reckon is illegal (rather, would support something my boss wanted to do that I reckon is illegal). Bit awkward, because if my boss insists then I’ve got an ethical obligation to resign, but thankfully he’s cooled off on the idea (after I grassed on him).

Work, eh.

this person bought two bottles of them in the hopes of not getting a cold

Think it’s like trying to put loads of petrol into a full tank, you’d just piss it out

you’re right, organs can absorb infinite amounts of things

haven’t been to pat val since #brexitgate

never been to Primark, never will

Yeah for Vitamin C certainly - your body just pisses it out. The counter argument is you can’t really overdose on it so makes sense to max out on Vitamin C but obviously not to the extent where you’re starting to either impair your kidney functions or spending a shitload of money on vitamins. They’re an absolute racket. Sometimes my wife drags me into Holland and Barrett and I look at the shelves and absolutely despair.

I HAVE drunk in a wetherspoons, it was awful and post-brexit vote I never will again.


(I forgot to say, everyone needs to post the word “stand” in capitals after their stated stand)
