      FBG, what dedication? The only thing I've done is point out flaws in your logic, which is super easy. TheXvid notifies me when you say something nonsensical, and writing a reply pointing out everything that's wrong with what you're saying takes me... I dunno, 2 minutes tops? It's not like it's a chore. But I do find this weird paranoid conspiracy outlook with a refusal to accept the obvious fascinating on a psychological level. Admittedly, being too disabled to work gives me more free time than most people. Plus I'd like to very strongly assert that my avatar is _my_ artwork, copyright me, and nothing to do with Channel 4's graphic design people. I like it, I'm proud of getting the style of SNES Final Fantasy sprites down so well, and I'll be damned if I'm letting a TV station take the credit.

      +pixel girl you're right about the organizational structure but what kind of entity thinks about that kind of stuff and also answers, as you put it, lone cranky people on TheXvid? I barely have time for this shit cause I'm busy, It's hard to imagine a normal person with such dedication and no financial incentive

    • pixel girl

      FBG TRUST EST. 1985, so Channel 4's dedicated enough to have covert operatives to try and... appease lone cranky people on TheXvid? But at the same time, those who you think are _stupid_ have been hired to handle the _non_ -clandestine social media stuff, _and_ video editing? That would just again be a terrible organisational structure.

      FBG TRUST EST. 1985, why would the person responsible for editing these be the same person responsible for writing comments on social media? That would be a very unusual combination of duties.

      Saltire I hope so because he really deserves it. Very funny, but also a very genuine nice man. He’s very good with Ed Gamble too. They should get James Acaster on this show, I’d like to see how he did.

      +peaky blinder Yeah I like James a lot. Some of his skits don't quite work, but he's got 'funny bones' without a doubt. I said elsewhere on a Would I Lie To You vid here, that in 20 years time, he may go down as one of the great comedians of our age. He will go far that lad.

    *Public service announcement:* Chav is not an acronym for anything. There's an _urban legend_ that it stands for Council Housed And Violent, but that's just a backronym. The true origins of the word are _probably_ Romani, from the Romani word "chavi" meaning "child". Also, whatever happened to "charva"? I heard that _long_ before "chav" became popular.

      Exponents have never been allowed at any point in the history of countdown (8oo10c or otherwise). I don't know what you've been watching if you think they're allowed.
      Since you quoted wikipedia here is from the section actually explaining the numbers round (as opposed to the summary at the top of the page):
      "They may use only the four basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and do not have to use all six numbers. "

    • RanEncounter
      RanEncounter 2 months ago

      Antony Evans According to
      "The two contestants in each episode compete in three disciplines: ten letters rounds, in which the contestants attempt to make the longest word possible from nine randomly chosen letters; four numbers rounds, in which the contestants must use arithmetic to reach a random target number from six other numbers; and the conundrum, a buzzer round in which the contestants compete to solve a nine-letter anagram."
      And FYI exponentiation is a part of arithmetic.
