Day: October 10, 2011

Can you guess my type? A short video test.

So many people have said that they know my type. I always contend they don’t know what they are talking about. Looking at my relationship…well no…looking at my infatuation history there is no clearly defined type. However I do know I have a weakness looks wise but do other people know what they weakness is?

Well I decided to put that to the test because I thought it might be amusing. Embedded below is the introduction to MasterChef Australia Season 3 (which is my favourite show by a country mile at the moment – can’t believe Jay went tonight – he was the fave but he just couldn’t do puddings) anyway here is the introduction which shows 12 men and 12 women. Put the video on and watch and see if you can decide which of the 12 women I fancy most just looks wise.

I will say that there is a second budding chef who is totally winning me over with her personality but you won’t really get that from the introduction. So just looking for looks. Can you tell which budding chef is the one that purely based on her looks I’d like to date more than the other 11?

I bet very few will be able to tell…

Please leave me a message and have a guess. It would be interesting to see what people think I go for…

I’ll put up the answer in the next couple of days.

Why some people are morons #109

Some people are morons. We all know that. However some show off their moronity (is that even a word? Google says no…) more than others. Some even say I am a moron. Some maybe right but for this edition of ‘Why some people are morons’ we go across to the Digital Spy F1 thread where a user known as Zenith posted the following two comments:

Thanks to the BBC website I knew the result before I had a chance to see the race.

The BBC website is my homepage & at 10am this morning, not once but twice the heading “Vettel takes crown as Button wins” appeared on their site.

Knowing that a lot of viewers would have waited to watch the replay this afternoon, you would have thought that they wouldn’t have announced the result in the headline.

So you wanted to watch the race but no live but still went to bbc.co.uk and expected not to see the result? Are you freaking kidding me? What a surprise that the homepage of the BBC website has the result on it. I mean really. I Sky+ed the race and didn’t check my e-mail or go online before watching it when I woke up in case I saw the result. I didn’t even check twitter on my iPhone. People need to learn that if you are taping something or watching on tape delay then don’t go on the internet or social networking sites where the event might be being talked about. It isn’t rocket science.

However he/she wasn’t finished.

Yep. I mean the BBC homepage BBC.co.uk.

If it had been ITV or CH4 etc. homepages then I would have expected to see the result in the headline, but as a lot of viewers might not have seen the rerun, I still think it wasn’t right to put the result in the headline in the general news section.

If the headline had been “Japanese Grand Prix results” etc. then you have the option to click on it or not. My gripe is that the headline showed the result of the race.

I have customised my BBC page to have the sports section near the bottom of the page, so I cannot see it unless I scroll down. Unfortunately the F1 result was also in the general news section at the top of the page.

Are you sure that the result is given in the headline “for every single race”, even for early races like todays that are given a full rerun in the afternoon? I don’t remember seeing anything like this before.

The BBC websites job it to put the news on. Not to cocoon readers from the news in case they might want to watch the event later in the day.

The result for every race is always in the breaking news strap at the top of the page. Like it is for football results, cricket results and all other major sporting results.

I just get annoyed when people complain about things when in fact it is them making the big error of judgement and not whoever they are complaining about. It is easy to avoid a result or a TV event. I do a radio show on Wednesday nights but when The Apprentice is on I don’t check twitter until after I’ve watched it when I’ve come in as to not spoil the outcome. As I’ve already said it’s not rocket science.

Some people…*goes off and mutters to himself*
