HRT side effects

Early days.

I imagine your GP will have given you a limited supply to see how they suit you  - 3 months? If it doesn't settle they can change the brand or the dose.

Same thing often happens with hormonal contraceptives, your body takes a while to adjust and then settles down, or they don't suit you and you try something else.

You need to suck it and see for a while - so to speak...

Maybe if you embraced your baldness instead of wearing what's left of your hair in a ponytail you wouldn't have to come in on a sweltering morning wearing a flat cap.


Embrace the slapheadedness, that's what I say. Bald guys are sexy.


He is emigrating to a much warmer climate soon. Wonder what the ladies over there (or men, not making assumptions) will think of his look..

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Just start a discussion about something important like wearing headphones in races - all hell will break loose...

Isn't a sound bite with no factual support how we roll theses days? Or is that just when important shiit is being voted on by the public?

Seems to be the norm now.

The Graun did a piece recently on how critical judgement is being eroded by social media because what people "consume" (I won't dignify it with the word "read") is increasingly fitted to their own world view and doesn't challenge their thinking or present an opposite view. It was pretty accurate and very worrying.

You could send a tweet saying you saw a Muslim eating a baby in Bethnal Green and it would probably be believed and disseminated. They used the example of Cameron and the Pig's head which actually has no basis in truth whatsoever. The so-called source, i.e. the woman who wrote the book that supposedly contains the allegation says she never heard any such thing.

Inquests have proved beyond all doubt that John Charles De Menezes never jumped a barrier and Liverpool fans had nothing to do with what happened at Hillsborough but some people still choose to believe otherwise. The truth doesn't matter anymore, only opinion.

If you have time, have a look at this:

Basically the headline is misleading and the second line in (yep the second line) makes this abundantly obvious. 

If you read the comments it will also become clear that around 50% of people posting never read that far as they were too busy being outraged about the headline. Not only that but it is also clear that they haven't read all the comments from the large numbers of idiots before them saying exactly the same thing and being corrected by those who bothered to read on down the page.

The Leave vote seems to me to reflect this lazy dumbassery on a grand scale.

No. No more.

Every single time we set you a deadline you ignore it and every time our manager, instead of backing us up, asks us to do your bidding. 

We have decided that this ends today and, frankly, don't much care what happens next.
