The UK Brave Space For Shitposting and Other Opinions Thread

Recommended Posts

Today on the internet I learned:

 

  • Some old British buildings have separate faucets for hot and cold water
  • Some British people cannot comprehend hot and cold water coming from the same faucet;
As a Brit I stubbornly support separate hot and cold taps in sinks because it’s what im used to. 95% of the time I’m never using the hot tap anyway as cold water is fine for pretty much every reason you’d wanna use a sink, bar maybe filling it up with hot water when you’re having a shave. Maybe I’m just a fucking idiot bathroom fitting luddite but I find mixer taps are never particularly easy to use. I dislike most modern fittings that seem to have decided on angular pointy metallic slabs being the preferred control method, but with no universally agreed upon method of activation - pulling, pushing, lifting, turning etc, and usually it’s difficult to work out which direction is hot and which is cold. There might be a tiny little red or blue spot somewhere on the tap, but are you supposed to push it in the direction of that colour for more of that heat? Or does the visible colour correspond to what heat you’re getting? I far prefer just a cold tap I can turn on and off without needing the lights on and my glasses on to work out how to use.

"You can keep your uni-faucets! At least we don't have.....Dammit!  Ninja'd again!  :(

 

Seriously though, when have I actually said shit like that?  :rolleyes:

 

It's your medical system and your government, not to forget the hubris, that I like to laugh at.  :lol:

We get both sorts around here.

 

Personally I like the compromise version where you have two taps that go into one spout. I dislike the ones where you have to lift to turn the water on and turn to control temperature, because you can never get fine adjustments right.

The 'truth' (whatever the fuck that is) hardly matters at this point does it?  :rolleyes:
