Slippers are so called because they slip.

A fact I should have realised before taking the bins out, failing to spot the ice on the path and resulting in a fucked-up knee, a load of skin ripped off my arm and a sizeable lump on the back of my head.

Bins got emptied though.

It's because they slip on to your feet. In India, flip-flops are known as 'slippers'.

If the fact that you knew that and were rhetorically pretending not to is also an 0bvious thing, I shall fall on my sword.

My slipper/snow/putting-out-the-bins injury from a couple of years ago.

Ouch, I nearly broke my foot going down the stairs taking the bins out, my foot went to sleep and I ended up not lifting my foot and my toes nearly ended up under my heel.

the word 'hostile' said by an American sounds very similar to, if not exactly the same as, the word 'hostel', which means that the title of the film hostel, about a hostile hostel, may be a pun.

Doesn't work in Australian, where they say "host-EL", for some reason. I learnt that when I was in Australia, staying in a hostelle.

I was putting some cans & plastic stuff in the green bin yesterday and there was snow on the driveway, and I was wearing my slippers.
You can guess what happened next!
I thought of your post and shrugged and continued my journey to the bin and slipped a second later!  Luckily I'm unscathed and I can't even see a bruise.

On the subject of steps, last night I ran up the stairs in dim light and realised that trying to take an additional step that isn't there is much more terrifying and dangerous than failing to take the last step, which typically just results in a sharp fall to one's palms and face and likely a broken wrist at worse. I only wish a camera had recorded the cartoon-like contortions to my face and spine as my head and the trunk of my body attempted to shed my arms and legs and plough through a wall

Vague memories of doing this after the pub when back home visiting my parents and hearing my dad from the bedroom muttetring to my mum "he's pissed".

The plastic bags with pictures of hands on by the bakery in Lidl aren't for putting the bakery items in, they're for putting over your hands while using the tongs to pick the items up, and there's paper bags to put them in. The plastic bags hand coverings even have pictures of hands on them. Why did I think that was? Because you use them with your hands?  Fucking dunce.

Aren’t they shaped like gloves? They are in the Lidl near me.

They're square in mine, like fruit/veg bags. The paper bags are also quite well hidden at the bottom so I didn't see them until the last time I was in there, if I'd seen them sooner I might have clicked.

What's the point in the tongs? If you're gloved up surely people can just pick it up?

In The Sting, Lonnegan doesn't realise that Hooker and Kelly are the same person, so the hit is out on Hooker, not Kelly. You follow?

Everyone in Columbo (except Columbo) is extremely rich and frequently works in the film/entertainment industry. I realised it was set in L.A. but never quite clocked before.

The guy he plays the Vision in the Marvel films was the same guy who did the voice of Jarvis, which sort of makes sense since the Vision was sort of made from the Jarvis computer*.

I mean, I'd even wondered in the later films why Iron Man's suit didn't speak like Jarvis anymore and sort of semi-assumed there had been some falling out with the actor or something.

In my defence, Age of Ultron was a bit shit and I don't think I was paying much attention by that point.

Ivana Trump sounds like a spoof Bond girl name like you'd get in Austin Powers. Just fart related instead of sex related.

It's only taken me 8 years to realise this. I reckon no one else has mentioned it because it's so obvious and cheap.

Whereas Lady Bird Johnson sounds like a proper Bond girl name.Conversely, Jackie Kennedy and Pat Nixon sound like Eastenders characters.

Similarly, Ivanka Trump sounds like Dracula explaining his favourite celebrity sexual fantasy.
