    Not sure what it's like as an actual site for looking for jobs, but for years after actually managing to get a job I still got emails/voicemails about local jobs that I was looking for at the time, it drove me a bit nuts but was also amusing as it never seemed to stop. Quite a while later I decided to start asking these people where they got my info from, it turns out my CV on jobsite.co.uk must have been filtered to every fucking agency in the UK.

    Im fairly sure Job Centre Plus passes on emails to "clients". I wouldn't be surprised anyway. I don't want to imagine the spam in my email right now.

    So I got a bucket of Mars minis and I've been eating them all day so I think the shit I took right now was just pure Mars bar again because it certainly felt that way through the toilet paper

    Just watched rogue one with the family, easily one of the best films in the franchise, blows TFA out of the water. Shame TFA was so mediocre..

    They had to play it safe and retread old (OT) ground in order to win the trust of the longtime fans I think. Hopefully they pull an empire with ep8 and make it pretty dark, I just watched Rogue One as well and I enjoyed how bleak it was

    I mean I'm glad they did that, it felt as if this actually had a story, considering TFA was just "Hey remember the death star? Remember R2D2 & C3PO? Remember Jedi? Remember Han Solo? Remember " I got a baaad feeling about this?". The whole film seemed like a string of references and throwbacks rather than having any actual meaningful content.. As well as actually good actors. Felt like I was watching a school play with a huge budget rather than a serious film.

    TFA was just rehashing ANH to get things back in the swing for the sequel trilogy, that and fucking JJ Abrams (that hack) directed it so obviously it was gonna be a bland and uninspired picture.

    I can't wait to see Rogue One however, hopefully it'll be better.

    it was great in the moment because it was that nostalgia fest we were all waiting for

    The new tobacco sales legislation has started. Only heard about it maybe a week ago. Just experienced it in Asda. Plain packaging, 30g minimum purchase, no less than 4 warnings on the packaging.

    The papers included ith Cutters Choice, no longer have a fun fact on them

    And my missus came back from her parents for xmas yesterday. Couldn't even say hello, she's still pissed at us for staying here for xmas. We have such different ways of reacting to stuff, I normally have about 30 seconds of shouting and swearing and then I'm good. While she'll carry her passive aggressive anger with her for days. I think it's an upbringing thing, we're both like our own mums.

    I think it cost over a tenner, I had a few other things so I didn't check. I haven't bought tailors in years, but I used to buy Marlboros wouldn't like to think what they cost now

    Try working with a lad who's the Regional Manager's son. He's an alright guy but as soon as something doesn't go his way he flips. He couldn't find cover for his friends birthday night out and just announced in the afternoon he isn't coming in. He makes executive decisions for the shop like displaying posters and moving fridges and shit around when he's just a salesman.

    My manager fucking hates him but can't fire him or his dad will flip out.

    Should we start making and taking bets on how 2017 will go?

    Smart money is on another year of slowly slipping into a dystopic grey dirge of the Western world, but I've personally got my fingers crossed for some sort of civil war or revolution in a country that actually matters. Bonus points if things go nuclear.

    Been trying to get mates round fr the past four days for boardgames, last night two cancelled because they went to a pub and got high. No apology, tonight "we're going into town to get a guitar". It's at 7:00, that's no excuse.

    Donald Trump declares war on Canada after being insulted by a random Canadian citizen on Twitter. Theresa May bans the internet because children might be able to use it to find porn and calls for the burning of all technology in the streets then installs cameras in everyone's homes because mum and dad might be pedos. Russia invades the entirety of the Ukraine stating that they all wanted to be Russians. Erdoğan swears fealty to ISIS and hands complete control of Turkey over to them followed by a Turkish full on invasion of Syria. Turkey becomes Muslim only country. Angela Merkel somehow gets reelected as chancellor of Germany and deports all refugees. All celebrities are locked into a volt hidden somewhere in Kazakhstan for fear of them all dropping dead. Elon Musk finishes his first rocket to Mars and we decide to put David Attenborough in it so he can make the first episode of Planet Mars before he dies. Garry Newman announces Rust is cancelled and hands control of FacePunch over to Postal. North Korea has a civil war and South Korea elects Psy as new leader. VR becomes more popular than smart phones as big game publishers all start to make AAA porn games for it with vibrator and fleshlight plug in addons. Oh yeah and all of the worlds ice caps will fully melt as Tesla takes over as top vehicle and home maker in the world with its awesome new electric house boats.

    I think that's probably how things might go.

    The pope declares that anime is the only true religion and you must pray to your assigned waifu 7 times per day. Bacon, tea and biscuits are outlawed globally.

    I don't think things could get much worse than that in 2017. I could be wrong though.
