No smilies, no avatars, no flashing gifs. Just discuss the issues of the day, from last night's telly via football to science or philosophy.

Lost Confidence

This iteration of the Lost People thread is drawing a line under laboured whimsy and occasional seriousness, to move forward to laboured whimsy and occasional seriousness.

Talk about it here.

First!

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 17:26:32 (#2 of 1559)

A very convincing performance, there.

TommyDGNR8 - 07 Jun 2022 17:39:50 (#3 of 1559)

Are you suggesting we should forget about you and move on, Dubris?

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 17:43:30 (#4 of 1559)

We could try, but I expect new whimsy would emerge.

Say what you like about Dubs, he got whimsy done.

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 18:11:11 (#7 of 1559)

I don't care, because I'm waiting outside the fish & chip shop.

On reflection, I may not have thought this thread title through properly...

...which at least shows it's internally consistent.

deffo the best thing I've seen in months

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 18:57:35 (#11 of 1559)

I have friends whose house has an upstairs living room with a balcony. Thus far they refuse to have a slide attached to it.

elderberry - 07 Jun 2022 19:04:12 (#12 of 1559)

show them that.

Cordelia - 07 Jun 2022 19:05:57 (#13 of 1559)

Doing the big slide at the Hayward was huge fun.

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 19:08:37 (#14 of 1559)

I didn't do the Hayward one, but I did go on the biggest of the slides in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern (Test Site, by Carsten Höller).

Rather a long time ago now.

https://speyer.technik-museum.de/en/ this summer, I fully intend to take the slide down from the jumbo jet mounted in mid-air here

elderberry - 07 Jun 2022 19:21:14 (#16 of 1559)

Not the same as doing it with nine happy excited doggies.

Dubris - 07 Jun 2022 19:23:38 (#17 of 1559)

Possibly a bit drier, you mean?

Sabacious - 07 Jun 2022 19:44:18 (#18 of 1559)

That is a very good slide.

I have made the finest Salade Nicoise known to humanity and would like to continue to bask in its wonder (while occassionaly nibbling at more of it) but several hours of work this evening looms.

Ricolas - 07 Jun 2022 19:49:35 (#19 of 1559)

I have eaten some things with increasingly hot sauces. Ending with one that is frankly nuclear. Am going ZING! rather nicely now.
