People seem to act retarded when something bad happens. Virus happens, people stockpile toilet paper like it's suddenly valuable gold. Queen dies, people come out saying the weirdest shit showing their true colors, and then others who make stupid actions/decisions over it.
Wish it wasn't human nature to be so fucking retarded but alas it seems inevitable.
Yep. Pretty much been doing that myself lately. Been digging into hobbies and movies and TV Shows, all the good stuff. Have to say it feels good to not have that shadow over you of media trying to make you feel how they want you to.
Hope it gets fixed, a region free player is a valuable asset.
I hope so too, I've had her since 2017 and she works like a dream. It's just the now, that she's started to give me trouble. I've tried to play new Tiger Cage box set from 88 Films and she wouldn't recognised the disc. I tried again with the 88Films Drive release, didn't work. Thinking that it might be the discs, I went and tried them down stairs. They worked fine. I've tried two more discs on her and had no problems. Maybe she needs an update or something, but that will wait for tomorrow.
Starting to get bummed out coming here every day catching up with everything. Didn't bother me at first, I just decided to stop doing it every day and decided to come here every other day, skipping a day inbetween days. Starting to feel like a chore, kinda hope that feeling goes away.

Changing my Internet and phone provider has been nothing sort of a nightmare. Our old provider cuts us off on Monday without a warning and since then we're being trying to get the new provider to come and instal the new things, but dear lord what a nightmare. I would rather cut my nuts off with a rubber teaspoon and talk to any of them again. We've manage to get a temporary thing for the next week, while we look for another provider that's worth a dam.
There's a really fucking dumb policy in one of the charity stores I visit. I am at my wits end with those morons but I'll explain what happened.
So a while back, I visited a charity store that sells DVDs. Now some DVDs are individually priced, and the rest are sold in bulk. The first time I noticed, they were selling bulk DVDs at 5 DVDs for £1. So, I looked and found a DVD I wanted (however I only wanted the one). So I went to the counter and asked how much the DVD was (naturally, I would assume 20p, 1 fifth of the £1 for 5, it is mathematical and logical sense).
To my amazement, I was told that a single DVD on its own is still £1. This really grinded on me a lot more than it should have since A) this particular store has never done this before, they've always let one through at 20p B) other charity stores still allow and follow the mathematical and logical sense of one being 20p and C) it literally makes zero fucking sense that you can have 5 DVDs for £1 or only 1 DVD for £1.
Naturally I felt like I was being ripped off/shafted and I asked why this was the case, and the person behind the counter rattled off some nonsense about company policy that never existed before (and was even stumbling their words like they were making that shit up right to my face). Added insult to injury however, was the person behind the store insisted that the DVDs are being sold "UP TO 5 for £1", not just "5 for £1". This was a blatant lie as the sign never included the words "Up to". I said "if you're going to lie to me and rip me off, at least go and add the words 'Up to' to the sign that is currently lacking it so you don't sound like a complete moron". Then I left the store.
I have since returned to the store and the person that flat out refused to sell me a DVD for 20p has never shown up again, however the policy has gotten even dumber over time. Upon returning, I noticed that they DID change the sign, except it doesn't say "Up to 5 for £1". They changed it to "15 for £1". The stupidy in these places are beyond my level of logical comprehension, and to make things even funnier yet infuriating, I had asked out of curiosity how much a DVD would be if I only wanted one single DVD out of the bulk being sold at "15 for £1" and they still said that a single DVD is still £1.
Might as well have a vacuum run the store since they are clearly trying to suck as much money as they can out of people with nonsense. I know charities exist to raise money which I'm all for but that doesn't give them the right to shaft customers in order to do so.

The local bus services have taken a massive dive into the shit. For the last few months, the company that took over the service is completely incompetent. Buses are either unbelievably late or don't show up at all. I've heard someone say that they had to wait two hours for the bus and another saying that 3 buses where no shows.
It's unbelievable how bad this company is. I'm got a buses back in December and the thing was an escapy from a scrap yard. Then a few weeks ago, another bus I got broke down and left everyone standard by the side of the road for nearly a hour.
