    Always been an outdoors person, grew up in the sticks of Northamptonshire but aged 18 moved to Birmingham and went city soft for 14 years but now back out in the Worcester countryside. Always had air rifles and shot on mates farms etc as well as lots of fishing but married life and working for myself meant saying bye to fishing but hello to more short session shooting. Have SGC and Browning 525, also member of shooting club and FAC. Recently joined a DIY syndicate so looking forward to first game season. Am yet to ask fellow members to take me shooting but only a matter of time...

  1. The diversity makeup of advertising is down to massive focus group and polling work by the advertisers to reach untapped markets - you don’t need to advertise to the people already buying your product. The increase in diversity is purely down to people responding to these polls to say the adverts as they were don’t represent them, so the advertisers manoeuvre to ensure they do have someone who represents those of different colours and disabilities. It’s not political correctness but market forces and desire for sales at play here.
  2. How the hell can they justify charging you per shot? Surely the only way that makes sense is if they provide the carts but even then it’s got to be about 20p max?
  3. Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings was released in 1978! granted it’s now done by computers rather than humans individually painting over film cells one by one. A programme like Mocha will take you pre filmed footage and rotoscope everything
  4. Lovely film Al as always - nice of those birds to fly perfectly straight over you on 2nd drive - well trained Pheasants!
  5. Happens every time, it’s sales tactics perceived scarcity means people are more likely to impulse buy one if they find a place with stock, which will be carefully controlled of course
  6. I feel such a tragic nerd but in for a penny... There’s an ongoing internet debate with back to the future as to why Marty’s parents don’t notice that Marty looks like the mysterious stranger who turned up at their high school - I think the answer is as simple as how well do you remember what someone looked like 30 years ago who you only knew for a few days. Also they have known Marty since birth so they would arguably not notice that at a specific time in his life he resembled the stranger. interestingly back to the future 1 is often cited as a good example of theoretical time trave
  7. If you really want to blow your mind read this... https://www.sciencealert.com/a-physicist-has-come-up-with-the-maths-to-make-time-travel-plausible Short version for those that don't want a melted head - if you go back in time anything you change will just happen another way and the present will therefore remain the same
  8. The predestination paradox - it has to happen because it already happened The Terminator films are to time travel what a riot is to ballroom dancing!
  9. I would say Films and Movies are interchangeable terms - Films has fallen out of fashion as very few productions actually use film these days so Movies is the more up to date term. Another way of looking at it is all Films are Movies, but not all Movies are Films. In terms of the main debate, I would say it's a period romance
  10. Was it particularly suffering after that workload?
  11. She asked for an innuendo so I gave her one!
  12. Whilst cleaning my B525 yesterday I did some rough finger maths and calculated it's had around 10,000 cartridges through it in the last five years, now this is still 'nearly new' compared to some of you so it got me thinking - how many shots has your most used gun had? I'm sure there'll be some 100,000 but has anyone got near the million? Over to you
  13. You can get a screen for the back of the Go-Pro - just need to make sure you get the extended back plate for the housing as it makes it deeper
  14. Just go with the highest resolution you can - from memory that's 1080 on a 3+ You can select different views from wide to narrow but that is just using less of the sensor so actually the narrow is just a blown up version of the middle part of the wide view - if you leave it on wide you can resize after if you want to follow the action closer when playing back Don't leave the wi-fi on as it canes the battery very quickly - use it if you want to check something back or change settings via the app
