    Why British commentators on the Tour de France suddenly start speaking with a French accent to say the place and riders names!

    I only ever have them toasted and just the sesame seed version. Makes a world of difference and wouldn't have eat them "uncooked".

    People who turn up at the cinema so early they spend 30 minutes watching advertisements and then moan when I time my arrival to perfection just before the film starts

    In all seriousness, the swerve-to-indicate function you see on so many cars on the motorway. In my day we were taught an indicator should be used to let other people know what you want to do, perhaps - a crazy thought I know - so they can adjust their speed to accommodate you. I appreciate this perhaps should be in the rant thread but I don't understand why so many people now wait for a gap - no matter how small - to swerve into, regardless of how fast the car in that lane is going.

    While I'm here, I also don't understand why when faced with an emergency vehicle either coming towards or behind them so many people stop in the most ridiculous of places. Just put your foot down or get out of the way, especially if it involves swerving so the emergency vehicle driver can gauge your likely direction from your indicator.

    It makes cycling accessible when pedalling harder is no longer sufficient to defeat gravity owing to age and a loss of strength. Not everyone wants to take up bloody golf!

    It's like the first lockdown out there, and now it's started raining there garden party lot have gone quiet as well.

    I've never fathomed the attraction of football. I'd rather watch golf which is a yawn fest but at least feigning injury to gain an advantage isn't part of accepted game play.

    The amount of time people spend on here - what happened to living life?

    Similarly, the amount of space people must have for storing all the bargains and heads-up that appear on here - I don't often succumb, but I did today on a rucksack I don't really need (that said, it does look nice) ...

    Finally, the inability of many members to make life's everyday decisions, without seeking the (oft-contradictory) advice of strangers on a forum. One of life's mysteries indeed.

    Thatís another one

    Golf

    Its dull, itís so dullÖ it also turns perfectly normal interesting people in to dullards. As soon as they take up golf itís all they want to talk about.

    If you didn't spend so much time here you wouldn't have seen the rucksack and could have saved the money. ;-)

    Why alcohol, football and race are such a toxic combination. Replace football with rugby and alcohol equals fun & camaraderie, while race disappears as an irrelevance.

    It is, I suggest culprits should be hung and just seconds before death released then disemboweled and their organs thrown into a fire - all while still alive, medieval Britain knew how to deal with non indicators..

    Agreed, kind of, it's no different to anything else that can become collectable/valuable. Cars, comics, stamps, coins, art, trainers, the list goes on. There will always be markets for people to spend money on something that no one else has if there is perceived to be rarity.

    Bottled water. It's been in the ground for a million years, put it in a bottle and it suddenly has to be used by 2022? So water dies after 1,000,001 years?

    People who identify as Tory/Labour/Lib Dem etc.

    Why would you guarantee any party your vote regardless of policy?

    Why wouldn't you take a fresh look at all candidates in the run up to an election and decide then?

    Imagine calling yourself an EON or Direct Line customer through and through while never having a fresh look at each renewal. You'd sound like a total idiot and you'd be massively out of pocket.

    Alcohol and Cricket can also be a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

    Cricket, terrible rules. Bowler chucks the ball, batsman hits it and the fielder springs like a gazelle and catches it with his finger tips....bowler jumps around and gets all the pats on the back. How come the bowler gets the glory? Surely if it was that great the Batsman wouldn’t have hit it?
