What's "a 'Seek Assistance' incident"?
I enjoyed answering the last question as nobody's ever likely to ask me for baseball tips ever again. Or is it basketball?
No, it's baseball. This userpic is Jose Reyes, whose position you want to change. Are you mad?
(Yes, I knew it was baseball really!)
I stand by my decision.
Yes, elaborate on the Seek Assistance incident!
I'm glad Bianca's coming back, but I'm disappointed they've said that she's going to come back down on her luck, depressed and penniless. I suppose I'm missing the whole point of Eastenders...
When coming out of the tube, the gate sometimes misreads your Oyster card, and flashes up "Seek Assistance" which means you a)Have to annoy the crowd of people behind you by pushing back through the crowd and b)Go and beg to be let out by the man on the manually controlled gate. It's annoying because it happens even when you have a perfectly valid ticket.
Huh? Whenever it goes "Seek Assistance" at me it lets me through anyway! I do not understand why it does but I am glad it does.
Are you on the pay-as-you-go type affair? It may be that you're being charged the maximum journey rate if you get a "seek assistance" and don't. Pure speculation on my part, of course, but that did happen to me when the gates were broken when I went in.
Here is a TIP: If it says SEEK ASSISTANCE and there is a little illuminated "94" by the side of it, it just means that the reader and card didn't connect properly - if you put the card on again but make sure that it connects properly with the reader (ie put it on totally flat, keep it there for a good second or so) it should let you through!
she's going to come back down on her luck, depressed and penniless
Possibly to save her the effort of actually acting.
then again, she has been in manchester for several years, who wouldn't be depressed, etcetc ;)
Assuming you're talking about rounders, what has Andy Roddick the tennis player got to do with it? He's the only A-Rod I've heard of.
I know very little about MLB, so I have no idea what the Mets would do with A-Rod. However I do know enough about baseball to know that free agents of his quality come available very infrequently, and that teams should be breaking the bank to sign him up.
I think you may have S.A.D, and your comments about waking up in the mornings are a manifestation of that.
teams should be breaking the bank to sign him up.
Oh, one of them will. It's just that the Mets already have great young players at shortstop and third base, which are they two positions A-Rod has played in his career. They'd have to get creative to sign him, but they should certainly try and work something out.
i feel MARGINALISED by your poll.
i am too shallow to even read the bbc website fullstop.
is 2B a pencil? that's why i went with it, it made most sense.
I also feel margenalised. I don't (nor ever have) watched East Enders. I do read the BBC *blows raspberry at shewho*
Are you serious about the BAS? I used to know someone who did the IT there for 2 years, and the IT staff (at least back then) stayed year-round so it wouldn't exactly sort out your daylight problems come wintertime...
Depends what station you are at. If you are at the Autralian station then yes, I think the minimum time you can go for is 9 months and its impossible to elave during winter. During winter there are only about 10 people there, and teh chances of going mad are fairly hihg. Especially (as happened to my friend) if you find a spider in your greenhouse and have to burn all your fresh food so it doesn't escpae into the antarctic and become a super-spider (or, you know, DIE IN THE FREEZING COLD).
The american station is more like a small town and is much easier to get to. I think you can be there formuch shorter periods of time.
Penguins apparently really smell.
I'm serious about the BAS, but less so about my current state of mind being caused by the clocks going back. I was just being topical for no very good reason.
I can't believe I'm the only person who said no! That'd be a terrible idea. He's overrated and not worth it.
I don't look at the BBC news, or follow sport, or watch Eastenders.
I can read, though. Score!
I think A-Rod's first name should be Dyn
I suspect working for the British Antarctic Survey would turn out to involve a basement in Cambridge, rather than frozen wastes and penguins and going out for some time.
But they do have lots of frozen penguin waste in Cambridge (you can play pass the parcel while it thaws, though in this case the one left holding the package at the end is the slightly fishy loser)
It would be fun to see the Phillies sign A-Rod, to see how he'd get along with the Philadelphia fans.
But it'll probably be the Angels or Dodgers.
As a fan of a different NL East team, it would be anything but fun to see the Phillies sign him. Especially with that stadium, he'd hit a million home runs there.
But yes, after hitting his million home runs, the fans would run him out of town for making an error or something.
