i suspect i pick the wrong one

as its wii

It the only console ive ever had, and it worked well for playing games with a 3 year old.

Mario cart and the lego series of games wer fun to play and taught christopher a lot about trying pays off and learnign to lose etc

64 was the incorrect answer so no worries. SNES is the true Mario Kart but Game Cube is a very good 2nd place with the Wii being a nice fun one due to new control scheme.

So what’s the story here? There was an Apprentice episode focused on beer? Is there a place to watch the episode online?

It’s on iPlayer now...tried watching it, but switched off after half an hour: that’s the upper-limit of time I can give to watching 15 utter berks comparing the size of their shlongs.

I was too busy washing my hair and watching MLB.com on the Xbox.

My Twitter feed went ballistic - though I still don’t get the fun in watching something that you know will anger you and then being angry on Twitter about it.

Ah. I’ve answered my own question there.

Anyway, did anyone see James Watt on whatever the follow-up show is called? Did he really say that he didn’t agree with gimmicky beer names?

I saw about 15 minutes of that dreadful programme, where do they recruit these self absorbed imbeciles? Also noticed some of the Craft Beer Co chaps, is the tall guy Mes and Sim? Think I’ve seen him pulling pints in Craft Islington.

Where they get them from I don’t know but I’m pretty sure they deliberately recruit people of that ilk for the spectacle value. I imagine watching self-important idiots make fools of themselves without realising could be quite entertaining. Not that I’ve ever watched enough of the Apprentice to put thyat thoroughly to the test. At least I hope it’s a deliberate policy. If they are the best of the young entrepreneur bunch gawd help us.

Chris, I think that’s exactly it... this was the first episode I’ve ever watched in full, but I get the impression if they had actual entepreneurs with ideas and people skills then they’d get half the ratings - the same theory as why all the reality shows seem to be populated entirely by bellends

As for the one who couldn’t scale up a dose of the essence from a half pint to a firkin... well good job she’s not trying to run a business or anything... oh...
