right, in this thread there must be absolutely no replies to other threads, dont want to see any discussion of any topic anyone brings up. the idea is just for everyone to list things (and a brief bit saying why and thats it). its a thread to say things uncontested and be opinionated as much as you want. if you disagree keep it to yourself and do your own post saying your own views. lets not get too over the top (i think most people know where things are going to cause SERIOUS offence), and lets all take everything with a pinch of salt right, ill kick us off (more to come in time no doubt): - HD TV is a con. sure its a bit clearer but the fact you get charged a subscription to have it makes it is a joke. I don't remember them charging you to watch in colour when that came available and that to me is a far more noticable difference. the difference between analogue tv and digital tv is more noticable too IMO. the ad's for HD make out as if it will change your life once you have it, and you are missing out if you dont. at the end of the day its exactly the same, just a bit sharper. just crooks after your money. that said im a hypocrite as I'm still continuing to pay for it, and if something is available in HD, I'll watch it in that. just saying its easy money for them. - Diet coke and coke zero only exist so that boys and girls have a drink of their own each. really they should only need one "alternative" and market that to both. instead they just adjust the formula twice, then have 2 teams trying to market them to different genders. waste of time. both taste like shit compared to real coke anyway. - when phone operators improve internet services, people will skype (or similar) people instead of calling (maybe why they are changing data plans, from unlimited to limited). - michael jackson, while one of the all time great musicians still did some terrible things and had incredibly weird moments that should never be forgotten when people talk about him. great dancer also. - a clean home is a happy home, and a happy wife means a happy life - i believe there is a link. - driving is to expensive. car tax, road tax, petrol tax, road tolls, congestion charges, parking fines, speeding fines, MOT's, insurance still dont put people off driving enough to use public transport. - lady gaga has yet to release a bad song. - the same can be said of girls aloud. - the english written press, is for the most part scum. - prostitution should be legalized here to reduce unemployment and to help balance the economic defecit.
