    Actually, I always wondered why fighting games used to have the fighter's blood type in their bios. Is that something that people wanted to know?

    I think in Japanese culture they ascribe certain personal traits to certain blood types.

    I could agree with two of those.

    I'm a Leo, so I generally don't believe in that kind of superstitious bullshit.

    Yes, to the extent it can make or break job applications, even at major employers. Scary stuff.

    You haven't hit 40 yet I think, so don't need to worry yet...

    My blood pressure was more or less bang on 120/80, hospital put me on blood pressure meds anyway, currently take Bisoprolol and Ramipril so it's probably a little lower than that now. It's all sorts of fun first thing in the morning, leap out of bed and then immediately collapse in a heap because of a sudden drop in pressure, it takes around 30 seconds before I can take a step without falling over. The experience isn't entirely unpleasant and I do it purpose some mornings just for the lols.

    As a side note, I'm on 6 different pills a day now, which cost me 54 when I went to pick up my first refill. Except it doesn't now as I've since found out you can prepay for your prescriptions for around 100 per year. Why does no one in the NHS tell you this shit when they're sorting out what stuff you need?

    I went on medication after I had a reading at 207/138. It's better than that now, but I am basically taking all the medication.

    My doctor told me that just the other day when I complained about the price of my prescriptions. Worth bearing in mind as we get older.

    WTF - I can never remember which number they are more worried about. The second one I think. But 120/80 doesn't seem bad to me...

    I am on 2 pills a day. BP one in the morning, statin before bed.

    120/80 is the normal guideline, but I had a heart attack at the end of September, so the rules are probably a bit different for me.

    So do you prepay for your meds, or just cough up 18 a month?

    I didn't know about the prepay. Sounds like I am on the cusp of it being worthwhile.
    I will investigate...

    @Alastair 104 per year payable by DD over 10 months @ 10.40 per month. Would save you 112 a year plus any other prescriptions you're given over the next 12 months.

    I had YouTube premium free for 6 months and now I'm back to free YouTube, it's really shit. Adverts after every video and during videos. Doesn't keep playing when the screen is off.

    You've got a better doctor than me then. 1 month at a time and that's your lot.

    Might still be worth it, it might only save you a couple of quid now, but if you have to go back to your gp for anything else then all that would be gravy.

    Yeah, once he was happy with the dose he extended the prescription out.

    So today was quite eventful at work.
    Every Friday someone decides to send a 'fun friday' email with all kinds of content, suitable for work of course. Anyway today someone decided to use MS teams and ask a serious of questions regarding one of their team members and had everyone vote. So for example which person has met X celebrity in real life etc.

    Whilst chatting with a colleague he childishly suggested he post his own votes based on inappropriate topics. He created some drafts and accidentally posted them and included everyone in the business.

    I'm still waiting on the results for:

    Who's got the biggest cock in the department
    Who's had the most cock up their arse
    Who's the biggest cunt

    I am a mug. Currently take 4 pills a day (one for BP, one for HR control and 2 anticoagulants) and generally get 2 months supply. It's been like this for over 2 years now and I still haven't gotten round to going for prepay. Mostly as I keep wanting to drop the bisoprolol as the side effects are bothersome some times. But that doesn't seem to happen so I should just bite the bullet.

    Getting a bit floody round my way today, bit worrying. I've spent most of the day out at flooded locations showing control, uh, that it's a bit floody and there's fuck all we can do about it, pumps or not.

    Took me two hours to get home, normally 15 mins. All the city centre is flooded.

    Got home to canal and river trust telling me the canal's going to flood as well as the river nearby. Good-oh.

    Taking into account our history of... Murdering everyone and stuff... and the fact we don't get any natural disasters or sharks or killer spiders or anything like that, I think it's safe to say the made up entity that is God is A ok with England.

    I dunno, we're pretty floody.

    I remember reading that Jersey was the safest place in the world to live, all things considered.
