- What's your most embarrassing moment?
I honestly don't embarrass easily. But anyway. When I was in 2nd year at college I lived on campus and had to take a shortcut across a football pitch to get home quickly. Anyway, I went shopping in Tesco one evening and I'm walking home with a big heavy motherfucker of a bag on my shoulder (bottled water, beer, HEAVY). I should also mention the fact that the pitch is damp and I'm wearing an old wear pair of shoes with ZERO grip. Anyway, I'm cutting across the corner of the pitch, some dudes are playing football and the ball just rolls towards me. The sensible thing to do would be to gently kick it back to them but me being an arrogant prick, I decided I was going to impress these random assholes and whip in a cross a la Beckham. So I lined myself for the big whipped cross, exaggerated technique and all. I swung with my right, my left was having none of it and slid from under me. I went literally arse-first 6 feet in the air, probably did a sommersault and landed on my head. The ball moved less than 6 inches and I'm just sitting there in a pool of mud. As you'd expect they were laughing their asses off but all I could think to do was salute them and take a bow..[/quote]
- What is it about U2 that really fucks you off?
The difference between Bono and Geldof sums it up for me. I'm no cynical asshole who despises any fucker who tries too hard to "make a difference". Gelfof finds himself in the role of a UN ambassador but he is fully allware of the absurdity of a mediocre 80's pop star assuming the role of world saviour. He regularly laughs at himself and the role he finds himself in. Bono on the other hand is totally devoid of any sense of irony and seems to consider his save-the-world role as the most natural thing in the world. I also think their music is embarrassingly bad. Type "Bill Bailey U2" into youtube for an amusing exposè of their music.
- When you are betting, how easy it for you to use logic and not just back your favourites?
Pretty easy for me really. I'm a dog backer by and large. Also I'm a natural pessimist who expects my own favourites to lose all the time so I have no problem opposing them.
- Should I play this game?
if you've got time to kill online then fuck it, go for it man
I'll take down the rest of the questions later. I really need sleep right now. My formatting probably sucks again so apologies for that.
