Oh no.  That's just shocking.  I've never met him in real life but he's always been an absolutely lovely person online and the forum won't be the same without him.
Goodbye Bolt-01.  We'll miss you.

Thanks Jim, appreciate it.

Thanks, all!

I didn't go to the hospital I'm afraid, I said I'd give it a night and see how well I was doing in the morning. I did feel a bit better then and now I feel I could probably function without the stick - it's nice to have it though when things get a bit twinge.  But the twinginess is far less frequent than it was.

So I think I've been very lucky and avoided serious damage. Again, really appreciate your good wishes.

I think having religion in schools has been great for Northern Ireland. It keeps us all separate and stops vulnerable young minds from being exposed to themmuns.

Shhh! Or Garth Ennis will come and write about you.

I demand an explanation.

It's definitely not my BAFTA, though it lives on our sideboard (and gets decorated for holidays) - my partner inherited it from her grandad, who won it for producing Yes, Minister. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0926243/

Ahaaa. I see.

You don't really look like Murray from Flight of the Conchords any more either.

I have scarcely a clue who or what you're all talking about.  Probably for the best.

Me, my front motorbike brake jammed last Tuesday while I was on my way to the mechanic's to get the front brake of my motorbike fixed.  Now I'm hobbling about with a stick and have a bruise that looks like the spot on Jupiter.  And plenty of other scrapes and bruises to add to it.  And an extra 350 nicker to pay out to the mechanic.

But, to be fair, I was very lucky.  No bones broken, and my neighbour who drives a van happened to drive past very soon after the accident and brought both me and the bike home.  He patched me up and took the bike to the mechanic's.  The man's a fecking saint - he's the same lad whose garden I watched the Wicker Man in last weekend, if anyone follows the Last Movie Watched thread.

It's an international clownshow. Over here, despite decades of systematic child abuse, locking up women and burying babies in sewers, along with countless conspiracies to cover up said atrocities, the Pope's lot still own the best schools, to the point where it's difficult to find a secular school while ensuring a good future for your children.  Fortunately, the Christian Brothers here, pointless at best and dangerously psychopathic at worst, who used to teach these schools are on the verge of dying out.

I'm so sorry, Boo.  You're incredible but you're up against the artist that epitomised 2000ad at its apex.  It's not fair but it's luck of the draw and sometimes life's a bitch.

Kev 5, Boo 0.

Ah look, Googe is brilliant and I feel bad about this, but I'm thinking Skizz, the end and aftermath of Oz, and, while I know I should stick to the prog, Bloodfang.  Neil is clean, modern and polished, and more power to him, but I miss the scruffy, grizzled and scratchy 70s school of comic art that Jim was a part of.

Jim 4, Neil 1.

Don't know who the nobody is, as I firmly remember people bleating online:"omg, we'll be sealed off the Europe, with the limit of movement to other countries severely imposed, that Tories would bend the country to their will" and so on.

Apart from the hyperbole of the 'sealed off' bit, I'd say those bleatings weren't far wrong.

Every fella in my primary school knew her name. But yeah, she's a top sort.

The Wicker Man, for the millionth time.  On May Day this time though, in my neighbour's big and wild garden beside the canal, with a bonfire and beers.  It's not the best film ever made, nor by any means the best film I've ever seen, but it's still my favourite.

It's Nicolas Cage shouting about bees that makes it, of course.

The 'J Edgar Hoover' nickname for Judge Edgar - did anybody cop the first time round that it was a misprint of 'J Edgar Hover', which makes a lot more sense?  Because I most certainly didn't.
