Things you have been slow to realise

Panyay West?


#1723

oh sorry I did get it. there we are.

let’s all improve in 2019


#1724

I thought I was off to a blinder with that joke, but maybe I need to rethink some stuff about life and whatnot and come back stronger


#1725

FFS Theo, now I’m in a Wiki wormhole reading about the Maginot Line! (I am very much enjoying reading about it again so thanks!)


#1726

I recall learning this when the year 2000 was coming up. Kind of weird to be on the other side of the @marckee desk. Not sure I like it.


#1727

The cheese is spelt how it sounds though - paneer - and so is pannier. It is a subtle difference though and not a subtlety I’d noticed before. I have no idea how anyone could manage to say pannier as ‘panyay’ - they are a menace.

All this about China landing on the arse end of the moon has led me to discover that the moon doesn’t rotate on its axis.

No wonder I got an E in A level Physics.


#1729

Yes it does, but the length of time it takes to rotate on it’s axis is so close to the length of time of its orbit that the same side faces the earth at all times.


#1730

Didn’t want to make it too wordy but yeah, we end up with the same bit facing us constantly.


#1731

Seems a bit convenient #flatearth #moonisalie


#1732

Just learnt that the lead singer of Interpol was born in Clacton-on-Sea :smiley:


#1733

Are you also aware that the dark side of the moon isn’t always dark?


#1734

oh yeah, Paul and Daniel are both English. and Paul supports West Ham. orr his dad does, at least. I think.


#1735

and if this true, it would obviously explain the lyrics

“we spies, we foam hands”

fuck, I hope I haven’t misremembered because ^that is gold, mates


#1736

Yeah; ‘Money’ is quite amusing in parts


#1737

Tony Hancock was only 44 when he died. I’ve seen re-runs on his programs - I would have sworn he was late fifties at least.


#1738

The booze really took its toll - very sad.
Sometimes wonder how his life and career would have been different in a 21st century situation


#1739

Conrad from Trail of Dead was born in Nuneaton


#1740

Azealia Banks covered this apparently!


#1741

not the West Ham version
