    Never watched it in my life but that made me laugh.

    That show embarrasses a nation.

    It also is delaying the new season of Top Gear. >:(

  • I got my hair cut really short today. Now I look exactly like Zach Galifianakis from Hangover 2, except if Zach Galifianakis from Hangover 2 had redder hair and were about 50kg lighter.


    Let the panties hit the floor.

    sometimes i look at my feet but then i look away at once because feet are repulsive
  • I went down to the beach tonight and feeling the fresh spring air was honestly just wonderful... it sounds cheesy but I've been cooped up too long. It was awesome to smell the tide coming in, I've missed that scent.

    News story: [Pending moderation]

    BBC Four - Roundhead or Cavalier: Which One Are You?

    [Pending moderation]




    In the middle of the 17th century, Britain was devastated by a civil war that divided the nation into two tribes - the Roundheads and the Cavaliers. In this programme, celebrities and historians reveal that modern Britain is still defined by the battle between the two tribes. The Cavaliers represent a Britain of panache, pleasure and individuality. They are confronted by the Roundheads, who stand for modesty, discipline, equality and state intervention.

    The ideas which emerged 350 years ago shaped our democracy, civil liberties and constitution. They also create a cultural divide that influences how we live, what we wear and even what we eat and drink. Individuals usually identify with one tribe or the other, but sometimes they need some elements of the enemy's identity - David Cameron seeks a dash of the down-to-earth Roundhead, while Ed Miliband looks for some Cavalier charisma.



    Truly entertaining and one for English history fans.

    It really makes you question where you stand, questions your views on society, you see the influence the Parliamentarians/Roundheads had on modern democracy, in Britain and Europe and whether Cromwell is a hero or villain.
