This is a question Family Feuds

Pooster tells us that a relative was once sent to the shops to buy an onion, while the rest of the family went on a daytrip while he was gone. Meanwhile, whole sections of our extended kin still haven't got over a wedding brawl fifteen years ago – tell us about families at war.

Never got on with my Dad...
...he was in the service and we tended to move from place to place depending on where he was stationed. I never really felt like his heart was in his relationship with my Mum, he was one of those career men - still is in fact, 45 years at the last count. Me and my little brother were going into the service whether we liked it or not. I tried to get interested in becoming a lawyer like my granddad, just to annoy him, but, let's be honest, law's fucking boring and my Dad got to fly planes and stuff.

Eventually I stopped sulking and realised I was only resisting becoming a pilot because I felt like I hadn't been given much choice; I actually really wanted to do the same job as my Dad had, not that I'd ever admit it to him. My brother didn't take to it very well, though. He met this slightly mental hottie at school and I think he was doing it to impress her, to an extent. I really liked his girlfriend, which I obviously couldn't admit to either. Family ties were strained all round.

Then the Cylons bombed the fuck out of our planets and reduced the entire species to less than 50,000 people. Seemed churlish to hold a grudge after that.

still don't have the foggiest what you're talking on about.

Damn popular culture references; I don't even get the Star Wars ones 'til everyone's commented on them.

I'm so dim sometimes.

I can't bring myself to cast shame and damnation on you for not having seen it because I'm a recent convert myself. Seek it out. Your life will be better for it.

(sigh) Ah, now that's what we need.
Proper British craftsmanship that is...
