Thu 27th Dec 2018 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Malaysia  (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Iron Maiden (music round).

Last Thursday of the year. I hope you enjoyed Christmas but now it’s quiz time again. Bring your loved ones if they are visiting.Should be good for a couple of answers.

Anyway, here’s the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Newsroom:

The full version of the song is elsewhere, but this is the bit of the song that everyone my age remembers: the Daley Thompson bit, the Lucozade bit.

Advertising was a powerful influence of the early-1980s mind of a child. We genuinely thought the drink would make us run very quickly.

But for some reason, we only ever got to drink it if we were off school with the chicken pox or whatever.

What a waste!

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: PLANET IS DOOMED (UNDER CAPITALISM).

Capitalism is the dominant life-form on the planet. Capitalism requires MORE. Profit can only come from expanding markets and more sales.

Therefore, any idea of consuming LESS is not tolerated.

But it is only consuming LESS (on a grand scale) that will reverse climate change.

Therefore the only consumer messages with a environmental impact which are given their head are “RECYCLE” and “REUSE”, while “REDUCE” is ignored as cranky.

The thing with RECYCLE is that you can make a new thing and sell it. Capitalism is aroused by this.  REUSE means a something new in the first place and Capitalism is still interested in this.

But REDUCE has no interest for any entrepreneur. Buy less? What is the point of that?

So it gets ignored. Even though it’s the only action that will fix anything. You can fill your car with green fuel or you can walk. Know what I mean?

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

Thursday Night Edinburgh Pub Quizzes – Thu 15th Nov, 2018

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Macbeth (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: PJ & Duncan (music round).

Anyone 35-45 reading that PJ & Duncan are in the music round may just have experienced a wave of hot nostalgia.

Innocent times when Dec was Duncan and Ant was PJ, in the auld days before PJ stood for “Pished on the Juice”.

Anyway, as Winston Churchill probably used to say “Nostalgia is for the weak. Bite me.”

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the music round at the Newsroom:

Awful isn’t it?

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: RECYCLING IS RUBBISH and RICH PEOPLE NEED TO STOP LECTURING THE REST OF US ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

Someone’s making money out of recycling and the world’s not getting fixed because even recycling still means making more stuff.

So, until X-boxes can be made out of lentils, the only true environmental fix is to stop consuming things.

But good luck trying to sell that idea to the filthy-minded public who, generally, just want to buy MORE STUFF and go MORE PLACES.

If some middle-class hippy is giving you shit about recycling, ask them if they’ve been on a plane this year.

In terms of carbon footprint: ONE passenger on a return flight to New York = total average UK household carbon footprint for three months.

So if you live with someone and you both go to New York for a long weekend, you’ll need to turn your house off for half a year when you get back if you want to “offset” the damage. Which you would never do.

And isn’t always the rich people barking on about what “we” must do to combat climate change?

Isn’t it always some Bono, Branson or Paltrow?

And how many flights do those chancers take per year?

And did you know that a toff travelling on first class flights creates a carbon footprint NINE times that of a passenger in economy.

They could turn ALL their houses off and they would never make up for it.

But we can stick our environment up our arse, can’t we? After all, they don’t want to sit in the same room as the plebs.

What a crew of utter wankers.
