    Shows/movies that you hate

    I think Ridley Scott was aware of the historical truth of those Germanic battles, but opted to go with the full battle array because it was more cinematic. From what I've heard Gladiator took a lot of liberties in its portrayal of ancient Rome. Apparently, Gladiators were not the rock stars and Olympic athletes of their day, but in reality were no more than glorified slaves. The lions and tigers in the colosseum more often than not didn't attack anyone as they became too freaked out by the roar of the crowds. Same here. Friends was so relentlessly bright, garish and sickly sweet that I always thought it was aimed more at children than adults.

    What is your zodiac sign?

    I looked up my sign with a quick Google search and was actually surprised how accurate it was. Apparently white is 'my colour', which is odd, since I've always favoured darker colours, and I noticed some of my strengths and weaknesses were present in other signs, but I suppose it's not an exact science.

    What is your zodiac sign?

    Seems like I'm the only Cancer here...? Maybe my starsign is the reason why my life is so crap.

    Same here, I think. Tried actively looking for love. Tried passively looking for love. Just can't seem to figure out what the rules are. I've heard so many people say "I had completely given up the search for love, then one day, when I was least expecting it, pow! There he/she was!"...How many times have we heard this anecdote? Suffice it to say the 'least expecting it lover' has yet to make an appearance. Actually, I wonder, has anybody on here been graced with a 'least expecting it lover'?

    Shows/movies that you hate

    I don't hate any TV show or film, but to answer your post some shameless offenders include: The Big Bang Theory -- Sickly sweet, cloying, unrealistic. Due to the show's huge popularity, maybe I'm wrong, but I'm sure I remember a time when social outcasts were a force to be reckoned with -- bold, rebellious trailblazers that would push things forward. All the Big Bang Theory does is make a mockery of geeks. The Inbetweeners -- I can't stand the way this show patronizingly tries to say 'these characters are just like you.' They're not. Eastenders -- No idea why this grotty, scum-fest endures. Coronation Street -- Unashamedly seizes upon and even seems to celebrate the aching blandness of northern England. All films by Michael Bay.

    Psychiatry/Psychology : A Sham

    I like the way you speak, sober4life -- clear and insightful. I recognise what you mean about numbness. It's a very subversive and haunting state to be in -- a slow, silent kil*er. I experience a lot of numbness myself, punctuated by the occasional anger flare up. When I was on meds they put me into this zombie-like state.

    Psychiatry/Psychology : A Sham

    In regards to original post, I have also been referred to councillors and therapists in the past. I regret going to them now as they didn't help. No actual healing took place, which is what I was hoping for. Pretty much all they do is collate information on you as you tick their standard-issue questionnaires and talk about your past as they scribble things down. These people can string patients along indefinitely by saying that treatment for mental illness is not an exact science, which is frustrating.

    What did you drink last?

    Lemsip. Pretty sick, but might just be a case of man-flu.
