Things you have been slow to realise

I have realised that in 2018 it is possible to have a thread about the Smashing Pumpkins which has over 1000 posts in it.

I also learned in that thread that the Stone Temple Pilots apparently released more than two albums.


#703

I pledged Elvis to be my next (never going to happen) child’s name.


#704

The band name ‘the la’s’ is just scouse for the lads


#705

There you go

Was absolutely certain the Megabus sign had a pig as a driver. To the extent i shouted out ‘pig on a bus!’ to my bemused family (and a few passers-by) whilst waiting at a bus stop.

Turns out its a picture of a human bus driver. Huh.


#707

To be fair, he is a very pink human bus driver.


#708

again


#709

This has done me.

That it’s actually incredibly easy to put a shimano cassette onto a freehub. You don’t have to spend ages turning each cog until you find it’s position - you just have to spend a second lining it up with your eyes.

That Fast Cars by Buzzcocks isn’t necessarily quite as political as I thought

Turns out ‘listen to Ralph Nader’ is a reference to book he wrote about cars

not to his attempts to run as a non-Democrat/Republican Presidential Candidate

(P.S. that is the best Buzzcocks song.)

Oh Theo…


#714

He sings I can feel it *coming* in the air tonight, not calling. Weird.


#715

Used to see these t-shirts and wonder why such a shite band could be so popular…


#716

Similarly, i was confused a few years back why teenage girls had suddenly got into the beastie boys best album.


#717

I was slow to work out realise this… :laughing:


#718

I just realised Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves are two different films, and only one of them is a comedy.

Cervical can mean relating to the neck and the cervix!

Was reading about this amazing breakthrough in treating people with paralysis with non-invasive cervical stimulation. There was a video showing before and after of some women and then some men carrying out simple tasks with their hands, and showing the improvement after the treatment. I was like how the fuck have they stimulated a guy’s cervix? Do guys HAVE cervices?! I did not know that. Then I had a quick google of ‘cervix’.
