    No one's celebrating. They're saving it for when the French team wins the world cup tomorrow.
    Because televised sports are more patriotic than your own revolution.

    Just kill me. Kill me now so I don't have to deal with tomorrow.
    I hate Euro football culture.

    I work in the McDonald's in Belgium and every time our team won it was full of people with Belgian flag make-up, Belgian flag wigs, devil horns on their car (our team is called "Red Devils"), drunk people screaming and blowing air horns, and loooots of orders for lots of burgers :p. Also the whole night we heard air horns, every win again.... And when the French defeated us, everyone was super angry and saying they didn't play fair lol.

    Personally, I couldn't care less about televised sports.
    If people have nothing more exciting going on in their lives than watching other people win something well...that doesn't concern me.

    But the frigging car horns man. The car horns and the terrible singing.
    And then if they don't win they break stuff.

    Well, since it's France, if they do win, someone will break stuff anyway I guess but...

    Anyone here ever ordered from random sellers on Aliexpress? Did it more or less work out?

    Oh yeah. Paris isn't the center of sophistication anymore.
    People throw eggs/plates/chairs on the police and each other all the time, piss...etc in the metro/streets/in and out of apartment buildings, walk into you, push their children into you, stand in doorways,
    drive their motocycles on the sidewalk and beep at you to move, steal your phones (and the police really don't care or help you on the last two so I dunno if we're supposed to care that people throw stuff at them?)...
    And then, the French football team wins and they go through the streets beeping and screaming, and they expect everyone to just celebrate with them like we're a big family.

    Screw that. You were an asshole to everyone the day before. You'll be an asshole the day after.
    I'm not your friend for 5 hours just because some people kicked a ball around.
    Annnd you're still assholes now because I'm trying to sleep and you're beeping at 1am.

    Looks fine on my desktop. Every time I see this make me really look forward to the next season of Mister Robot.
    I read somewhere that one or more of the actors was very intimidated to be playing in front of the original band members, might have been in front of Brian May. But Brian is a very cool guy and all went well.

    And I raise you by two Queens, lol

    My mother has just recently! She got me a bathing suit, and for herself, a pair of pants and a skirt.

    So, the bathing suit doesn't cover my chest at all (it's literally unwearable, might as well go to the nude beach in town), the pants were said to be made of silk... They weren't, they were cheap polyester (I guess you could say "what do you expect?"), and the skirt, I have no fucking clue what's wrong with those sellers, was an unattached had no hole for the button and needed to be fixed by a seamstress.

    I don't buy from any random seller, but I find the rating system to be accurate. Everytime I look for something I usually sort the products by number of order. I would never try buying something that doesn't have ratings, except if it was really cheap.

    No, serious, what do you expect? :lol:

    Since I wrote that I did go ahead and order the laptop part I needed (an oddly shaped power jack) and it worked out all right in the end. I suspect half the computer sellers are just squatters who took up residence in abandoned factories and started them up again, so what they sell is the same as what you used to get through official channels ::meev::

    What do you mean? I'm picturing something like an old timey strongman suit.

    I'm trying to buy a Nalgene water bottle as a present for my girlfriend but I'm totally stumped on what colour to buy. Currently torn between Aubergine, Purple and Pink.

    Why not go all the way to Pink With Heart?
    I say that if she likes cute stuff, Aubergine if not.

    I've decided to go with Aubergine, I think it is the closest to her favourite colours. Next step is deciding on what colour I want...

    The chest part of it was cut to the edge of the breasts instead of to the point where the chest and back meet. It looks like when a woman with a huge cup size tries to wear a petite bikini. It all spills out! Can't even turn in it without flashing people. I thought I'd never experience that as an A cup...

    The penguin bottle is marked "for kids". Not sure if that matters though.

    Um, question. Has anyone else here gotten a random messenger add from a "mana sama" without a profile?
    I'm trying to figure out if I should be super warry or just avoid all contact.
    All i can say is that, should they offer me discounted Moitie scrunchies, I'm not interested XD

    I was doing my work set of deadlifts at the gym and some guy shuffles around me to get to the chalk station while I'm mid-set. Threw me right off and then all he did was sit back at his bench and fiddle on his phone.

    I've been blacklisted on Puresound XD During spring I placed an order on the last day of a "20% off" so in the message bit I wrote "if the % does not apply to my order please cancel it" (in japanese). I did get a message back but it looked like the normal confirmation, I think it said it does not apply are you sure you want us to cancel as well... anyway since I had said so and I remember being stressed out in general I never replied assuming they'd just cancel my order...as I originally asked them to. Anyway earlier this week I couldn't sign in for making a new order, assumed I just forgot my password so I placed it without signing in. The following day I get a message saying I've been blacklisted due to my previous history :P I messaged them explaining the situation but I still haven't got a reply. Have anyone had a similar experience? It pisses me off to be honest, not like I've placed a ton of orders and then just trolled them. This was the one and only time I didn't complete. It would suck if I had to use a shopping service from now on.
