I guess I'm just old-fashioned but I really prefer my programming without advertising like it used to be before the politicos tampered with Auntie [the Beeb]. Not all change is progress

TV licenses. Fucking retarded.

Yeah. I took mad offense at being forced to pay one as I had no TV, but the license man who came round said, 'ah, well, see, your PC has a TV in card, and that is technically capable of receiving BBC one if you plug it into that socket there see?'

'The fucking socket blocked behind my solid oak 10 foot bookshelf in a frankly unusable position yes?' said I

'Yes' says he.


'MEH!' said I.





What happens if you don't pay the license fee?
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

You'll get a Courts' Summons for non-payment of TV Licence, and a criminal record and a fine. You then have to pay the unpaid licence fee's for however long they decide you were dodging em for too.

So call it 1500 pounds + whatever they stick on top + a criminal record.  :sad: for fucking TV.


yet another reason for me to not live on that island.

You are required to pay for tv even if you do not use tv.

I think I will stay here in America, where we have socialized tv.

Bwa ha ha!  I think we can actually fuck with a lot of people with the phrase "socialized tv".  It has potential.

I think we should have this too.

It would create a lot of jobs.

We should also hire thousands of federal window breakers.  It would give repairmen jobs.

We can call it the Fuck You tax.

  :mrgreen:

Sums it all up nicely that does. Its mandatory to pay, even if you don't own or use one.

Also, I do not believe there is such a power-trip-obsessed-tin-pot-dictator-style-jobsworth-job in the USA as TV Licence Inspector.

Possibly traffic warden. Possibly.

DMV clerk.

I shall visit this DMV next time Bella has to go, to see the horror first hand. I hear bad things.

It's like visiting the Soviet Union, and popping around the corner just to buy a roll of toilet paper.

Id demand a paper license that I could hang on the wall
Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Well, I guess we know where Mrs. Bernadine Behaf lived. At least in 1985.

Old meme is old - and we can tell the difference between a verb and a noun
The opposite of “bonfire” is, presumably, “malice.”
