Tipping Point. A game show so tedious and banal the BBC wouldn't even consider it for the Saturday night National Lottery game show slot.


Caught the last 10 minutes of it on Friday (only 'cos you mentioned it here) what a load of bollocks. What a pile of shite! (etc)
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

God ITV have gone cheap , £50 pound chips for £10,000 pound prize money and not all win that . Far cry from million pound jackpots on who wants to be a millionaire. TV really has been shit since about 2003 IMO and its just gets worse and worse every year.

TV really has been shit since about 2003 IMO and its just gets worse and worse every year.


IMO it's been shit since 1988. That year a third public TV channel was launched in the Netherlands.

I proudly present Magere Hein's Conservation Law of Quality TV Time. My hypothesis is that, ever since the invention of TV, the amount of quality TV that's broadcast every week has been constant. Since that time the number of channels has increased by a factor of 1000 or more, and quality TV time is divided among all those channels. Therefore the odds are overwhelmingly that you'll miss it.

The funniest thing on TV at the moment in the UK is Horrible Histories and that is shoved out of the way on the CBBC channel. I am not the only person who thinks so because this show won the British Comedy award last year. YouTube any of the songs or Bob Dale and enjoy.

Never watched it but i will check it out. I would also recommend 'breaking bad' very unique and amasing american show. One thing I would say if your going to watch breaking bad is don't do any research about it apart from maybe a quick summary about what the show is about. As it has alot of amasing twists and surprises along the way and the way the show has evolved by the end of the fifth season is remarkable.

Though Breaking bad never even got a chance in the UK it was pushed to some secondary channel 5 channel and the last 3 seasons weren't even shown in the UK and the UK rights to the show weren't even expensive. IMO breaking bad is probably one of the best shows America has produced since the x files and consequently they were both worked on by Vince Gilligan.

Since this is posted in a Good News topic: small children receive much less damage from falling on their heads than adults do, due to difference in size. To quote Stephen Gould:

Kinetic energy, for example, increases as length raised to the fifth power. If a child half your height falls unsupported to the ground, its head will hit with not half, but only 1/32 the energy of yours in a similar fall. A child is protected more by its size than by a “soft” head. In return, we are protected from the physical force of its tantrums, for the child can strike with, not half, but only 1/32 of the energy we can muster.[1]


This doesn't mean children won't get hurt when they fall. They'll certainly cry as if it's the end of the world, but probably they'll survive without lasting damage.

If a child half your height falls unsupported to the ground, its head will hit with not half, but only 1/32 the energy of yours in a similar fall. A child is protected more by its size than by a “soft” head. In return, we are protected from the physical force of its tantrums, for the child can strike with, not half, but only 1/32 of the energy we can muster.[1]

This doesn't mean children won't get hurt when they fall. They'll certainly cry as if it's the end of the world, but probably they'll survive without lasting damage. [1] Stephen Jay Gould, Size and Shape, The immutable laws of design set limits on all organisms regards, Hein

It is to the good that this forum is not as visible as,maybe,One Directions website or Autotrader as Im certain the above post, should it have gained a far greater audience, would have had every Chav mother from Bristol to Manchester testing this scientific fact out by dropping young Kai and Tulisa out of their 5th floor Flat windows. Im guessing, if its all true, Verne Troyer is fucking bullet proof, right?

You talk complete bollocks. There are no chavs in Bristol. :D

Fuck, you are quite correct. I meant to say Trowbridge. :lol:
