Things you have been slow to realise

Wtf, it’s not pain staking?!?


#603

Why would you stake out pain?

Nice one Emilio estevez and/or richard dreyfuss


#604

We live and learn. Which is better than the opposite.

This is a bit more obscure than the average thing here but… I bought this record years and years ago.

Here’s the other side…

And I thought: What a fucking weird sleeve for a record like this.


#606

And tonight I played it out DJing at my local pub and a friend asked what it was. I showed her and she said, “Is that the George Young whose something to do with AC/DC and the Easybeats.”

No, I don’t think so, I replied. Look at the b-side’s title. It’s obviously something from Detroit.

So I looked it up and… the guy on the sleeve is actually the guy on the record. Weird sleeve for such a funky and soulful kind of record but… it’s him. And for years I thought it was a totally unconnected photo.

not having this


#608

Not me, but my son has recently twigged that if players get hurt in real life they don’t automatically get hurt on FIFA, and vice versa.


#609

I was once in denial too


#610

Not automatically, although they do get shifted into the reserves by the game and if you then put them into your team there is a high chance they will break down with an injury


#611

I guess this is a bit too niche even for DiS.


#612

This I never got because I think I must have been introduced to the term fine tooth with combs at a young age.


#613

Does anyone really think there’s a comb for your teeth?


#614

Roy’s Rolls in Coronation Street is a pun on Rolls Royce


#615

:grimacing:


#616

Is that a thinly veiled reference to head lice ?


#617

:laughing: is it??

I’m trying to say rolls royce to sound like roys rolls but its not quite getting there


#618

Say it over and over and you’ll be saying ‘Rolls Roy’s’, won’t you?

It’s weak, granted.


#619

This is like when @marckee claimed the title of the film Con-Air was a pun on air-con


#620

:exploding_head:

Is that why the horse is called red rum?


#621

So near so rolls
