    In news that should surprise nobody that watched Thor: Ragnarok...

    Taika Waititi hired to make a Flash Gordon movie

    Excitement levels are low at the moment, but they will climb rapidly if they get Brian Blessed involved somehow.

    Hrm, I didn't know that he was a cunt specifically in that way, though.

    Ok so maybe not a random news article but this thread seems as good as any https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-48771889 it beggars belief from me that the victim followed the perpetrator after seemingly such an initially small exchange, I have every sympathy for the victimís family obviously and understand Iím not defending the perpetrator at all but he kind of made himself a victim? I canít see any circumstances where I would have followed the guy to carry on the argument.

    Read the reports of that incident earlier this week and felt terrible for the guy and the son. Then the video came out and I was watching thinking 'what the fuck are you doing, why are you following him in to the next carriage?!'

    Being an idiot doesn't make it any less tragic or excusable though

    Absolutely. More tragic if anything.
    Maddening for the family as well I could imagine.

    What were they arguing about?

    Not totally clear from the reports I read - something about blocking the aisle, but I couldn't figure who was blocking who, and who was the most upset about it.
    (other than the guy stabbing the other guy to death which suggests he was very upset about it)

    I agree, I had envisioned a very different scenario.

    Obviously no one deserves to be stabbed but if you keep pushing for confrontation you can't be considered blameless.

    Every life is sacred except if it's a 23 month old kid from a foreign country drowned in a river.

    The BBC dug deep for some insightful tweets to pad ou... illuminate their article about a man climbing The Shard.

    Heh.

    This is why Twitter should allow for tweet edits. You could troll a news site and then when they link you could change it to read about detector vans being a myth or something
