    Well, this is sh*t.

    I saw a Blue Whale Today

    I saw them on Christmas Day just gone in Sri Lanka. It was incredible.

    Going to the toilet during lessons.

    I appreciate this thread is weird but I’m jumping in. I am a teacher and I let children go when they need to. You find out very quickly who is taking the p*ss and who isn’t. If I’m teaching and I need to go to the loo then I let the TA know and I go. It’s the same rule for all ppl in my class, child or adult.

    Elton John

    He’s a headliner. No other option. Yes he’s a legend so he could do the legend slot, but he’s too big.

    Acts you don't "get"

    Another one for The Beatles. I just don't get it. Actually anything Paul McCartney based.

    Green Man Festival 2017

    As I've said before, it's my first time and I've got a couple of questions if people don't mind helping me out. Is it much of a walk from the car park to the settlers campsite? I'm taking a bell tent. I heard they have carts you can hire for transporting gear for a £50 deposit, with £45 being returned. Is that right? Is there a decent shop nearby or am I better off taking my food for the first three days with me to begin with? I have a cobb BBQ/oven so hoping to cook up some good feasts. Any tips for good things to go and visit in the local area over the first three days before the festival starts? Thanks a lot! I'm really excited now.

    Glastonbury tattoo - help needed

    If you want a band go for it, it's your wrist after all. My only input would be I wouldn't have the year. Make it a generic (but lovely) one and it's relevant forever. Like a lifelong festival memento, rather than being tied to a year.

    Green Man Festival 2017

    Thanks very much. Yes I was in Monmouth yesterday for a wedding and it certainly wasn't dry! How is the phone signal there? So I know how much local area research to do before I get there!

    Green Man Festival 2017

    Hey I'm a Greenman virgin, heading up for the first time this year and got myself a settlers pass. Does much go on Monday to Wednesday? Or do people leave the site and go and do touristy things? Thanks :-)

    quechua Fresh and black tents

    I went for a new tent this year, opted for both inflatable and fresh and black. This one - https://www.decathlon.co.uk/air-seconds-family-42-xl-fb-id_8384151.html It is an amazing tent, really loved using it and so many people stopped to examine it. Good sized bedrooms, nice large living/storage area. When I woke up each morning I didn't know what the weather was doing outside until I opened up the zip, which is about as good a review as I can give.

    NYC Downlow

    It's the latter.

    NYC Downlow

    Excellent, so we can agree that it's satisfying a core human need in a small part of a large festival - proving once again that Glastonbury does a great job of providing every experience possible. We can also give a nod to NYC Downlow for providing such a brilliant and exciting (subjective, but it's what I think) replication of a seedy nightclub which is inclusive to all while celebrating and taking ownership of the term queer. Great news.
