    Why? If I was wheel chair bound I couldn't use my local tube station. The lack of access is disabling, being in a wheel chair doesn't make tube travel impossible, is makes it inaccessible.
    i'm confident that the UK in general makes disability access as wide as possible. that said, sometimes it just isn't workable. an example - where i work it's all cobbled paths and so on, and these are pretty harsh on a wheelchair. to tip them out and tarmacadam them would a) cost about 3m and b) remove a significant part of the heritage of the site. so for the 2% of visitors we receive, should we spend a pretty extraordinary amount of money and at the same time ruin part of our offering?

    no, that would be insane. being disabled is obviously limiting, but i think we do our best to make it as little a hindrance as possible.
    30 per cent of people in families containing a disabled person are in poverty. Seems like a pretty big hindrance

    i didn't say it was a hindrance ffs, i was replying to your point about tube stations - sometimes it is just not feasible to cater for everyone.

    Seems the BBC are getting on board with it as well

    Leviticus 24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.

    Fat nerd semi-comedian LoL streamer youtuber set off on a likely chain of events after making a video with a "look at my tits" youtuber because he felt like doing a full introspection.

    The catalyst



    The baring free of the soul.



    The repercussions and personal fortitude.



    Evil people talk to eachother

    I really dislike that the whole weird celeb culture so effortlessly made twitch and YouTube a new platform.

    I miss the days of cod4 frag movies and tournament streams. This bullshit rise of 'lifestyle' crap used to shill crappy gimmick products by narcissistic cunts is depressing.

    It's actually pretty good and highlights the hate mongering that masquerades as political discourse. Most of his lash back is from the second video because he makes the mistake of saying he doesn't take political movements at face value.

    yeah he was perfectly cool in that podcast, i will forever fondly remember the Biscuit Bear. never looked him up beyond that tho.

    this seems shitty though

    seems attention whore-ish indeed, but not too maliciously and a bad person as such... eh sucks
