I doubt it's really Bruce Springsteen - it's probably just another 22-year-old size zero supermodel who is grooming you so she can entrap you, ply you with drink and have her way with you. She only wants you for your body, Chris...

Srsly, though, for every actual artist of note who is active on social media, there are ten imposters. The vast majority of the real articles also don't run their official social media presences (and less so when they're the wrong side of 40), so the likelihood that you indeed had an interaction with the Boss himself there is, sorry to rain on your parade, negligible. Realistically that's either a 16-year-old kid who'll make fun of you to his friends if you react flattered or anything up to a bot that's programmed to first win your confidence and then your sensitive data. Also, I'd be careful about using my real name on any social medium (says the person who doesn't only go by just that on FB, but also has one that's literally unique). It makes you unnecessarily vulnerable and thereby a target.

And we wouldn't want that, would we?

Cue several months later, Bruce is on the Graham Norton show describing this one time he reached out to a superfan and got snubbed... :p

So many responses -
I don't think she can have his body, he's still using it himself. However, his body does seem to have some issues at times so if he gets a better body in return, I suppose she can have his.

*camera pans into the audience and zooms in on Criss* "And there he is! Bruce, meet your biggest fan!"

Graham gives him the mic.

"Bruce, do you know about the early days at the Kimberly diamond mines..."

:p

And in Kent, they are panicking because a junior IT worker issued planning permissions and refusals in teen-speak, thinking he was just running an MC on the system:

The official explanation is that the teen-speak to which Alexander refers was entered by an IT person who thought he was testing a system, when in fact the system was live.

It could happen, although someone has screwed up big style if it did - but it's fair to say that not everybody believes that explanation.

Mid Kent Services is a consortium which runs planning and various other services for Maidstone and Swale, and indeed some other services but not planning for Tunbridge Wells as well. Whenever anything goes wrong, Maidstone blames Swale and Swale blames Maidstone - especially since it just so happens that Maidstone is run by the Conservative Party and Swale by the Labour Party.

The bad news for Mid Kent Services is that it has taken an opinion in chambers, and has been advised that these joke planning decisions are legally binding. The only way to reverse them will be to call a judicial review on itself - and that's going to cost money. For which Maidstone is looking to Swale, and Swale to Maidstone ...

Derbyshire couple turn over their parked car

I love the phrase used by the police spokesperson, "strengthening their relationship".
The day before had been djgordy's birthday. I asked him if he knew anything about it, and he denied all knowledge. But then, he is probably too damn tall to get in a Yaris, never mind do anything in it.

And that's why it's always best to leave a parked car in gear, too...

I could not quite say tbh, having left my parked car in gear ever since I acquired my driving licence.

I'm guessing the earth really moved for them that time.
