    I suppose you'd much rather have that as the download speed.

    Do you go to R**** school? (Starred incase you wanna be anon:lol:)
    Nope :lol:

    Yup, I've been spoilt, and I think pretty much everyone else here too, to the point where I wouldn't be happy if I had to constantly pause a video of at least 480p to let it buffer :lol:

    ... Whenever my dad wants to stream his karaoke / Asian news network on the TV it uses up so much bandwidth and YouTube defaults to 240p/360p streaming When I'm the only one using it, it's fine though, can watch in 1080p just fine. It's what happens when you live in a chavvy part of town - my friend a mile away has fibre optic and our area doesn't :lol:

    I've driven past Coventry like twice in my life, never actually set foot there if you live there. Also, never seen anyone that looks like you so you've probably never seen me :lol:

    You're not missing much in Coventry, it's so dull(probably due to the fact it had to be quickly rebuilt after WW2).

    No, not at all, just a bit of a Germanophile.

    I don't really know why Dortmund have suddenly taken a plummet when a couple of years ago they were winning back to back titles at Bayern's expense. Clearly they relied a lot on Götze and Lewandowski.

    Same when it comes to football. The World Cup was great.

    Dortmund were an amazing team but they'll probably be picked apart in the transfer window this summer and get even worse.

    Yeah, I either have to start playing my guitar or turn my music up, because the might of the karaoke/speakers is resounding :lol:

    My friends can sometimes hear it on Skype; it's downstairs and I'm upstairs!

    Borussia Mönchengladbach seem to be making a bit of a rise but nobody seems to be emerging as a real contender alongside Bayern. It'll end up a bit like Scotland if they're not careful.

    Yeah? If you mean that they weren't a team and relied on certain players heavily then I disagree.

    If that's not what you meant then just ignore:lol:

    I have lost a bit of interest in football this season tbh haven't been watching many games except for Barca's.

    Doing some Latin literature and looking at an insult this poet came up with about a girl (she didn't like him, that's all, supposedly )

    [Speaking to some friends]
    'Announce a few words to my girl which are not spoken well:may she live and may she flourish with her adulterers, 300 of whom she holds in her embrace at the same time, loving none truly but repeatedly bursting the groins of all of them'

    And that's followed by a nice simile:

    'May she not look back to my love, as before, which by her fault has fallen like a flower at the edge of a meadow after it has been touched by the passing plough'
