    Even I picked up on it, and I'm spectacularly out of touch.
    Genuinely I'd actually forgotten she wasn't white. When I heard about it I though everybody was getting really tetchy about him saying the baby was ugly. It's only when I went to BBC news and
    then it was all "oooooh yeah she's mixed race"

    I'm so out of touch I can't feel my hands.

    Sadly, the definition of literally has been updated in most dictionaries to allow the Redknapping expression.

    It's literally making a mockery of the word literally.

    Same here, I was sat here yesterday thinking "but she's white...". Totally passed me by that.

    Does it help your defence case if youí so out of touch you donít know who Kelvin is either?

    I didnít know she was pregnant, didnít watch the wedding and donít use Twitter. I do know Danny Baker is a muppet though.

    Thanks. Just googled him.

    Former Sun editor who called footballer Ross Barkley an ugly gorilla in his column. Baker works/worked in the media, his job sort of requires him to not be out of touch with whatís going on in the world

    Like Elstoof said it's joke, a joke because there's no way a state like Texas would control what a man does with his body.

    Was on BBC News 24. My 10 yr old looked at me, and said "Seriously?". If children know it's shit news... Surprised they didn't have Farage on commenting about immigrant heel ends.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-48265096 What on earth is going on there? Some kind weird love triangle thing I guess but will be fascinating to see if they can get to the bottom of it.

    Heinz-Christian Strache, vice chancellor of Austria and spokesman of far right populist party FP÷ (which prides itself on fighting corruption), caught in a setup with a supposed rich Russian. He openly embraced the idea of her buying a major newspaper to then push the FP÷ in exchange for future government business deals, discussed how to best hide unlawful party donations, and revealed other people and companies doing so, including weapons manufacturer Glock.
