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.

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:

Yet another tory-spook powered attempt at skulduggery begins to fall apart at the seams:

Fuck me, shouldn't at least some demonstration of actual intelligence be required, before you are employed by the intelligence services.  :rolleyes:

This scenario shouldn't feature in the SDSR, because any proper invasion of the UK (i.e. an existential threat) would warrant a nuclear response and no-one wins. Any threat nation invading just the UK would be an odd move, and would have to contend with almost every submarine in NATO en route (who've been salivating for a chance like that for decades).
