    Lot of sanctimonious gits on here. Not at all sure of the moral value of being a Truthsayer. Frank Herbert recognized both the power and weakness of them in the Dune series and covered this subject superbly, far better than anything I could express. Nonetheless I am one such. Mostly. I don’t tell my wife I dreamed of the yoga teacher....
    For those that indulge in daily lies and embellishments, my theory is this, that if your life is so unutterably dull in your own perception that you have to invent stuff to give it a sheen, change your life.

    There's a story about Mark Twain having a fascination for the Mississippi river. Until he got his pilots licence. Once he knew her secrets, the magic and the mystery had gone.
    As the saying goes, the one with power in the relationship is the one that wants it the least. However, it is the one without the power that gets the most from the relationship. Even if it hurts.
    Mother nature does have a sense of humour. The more you want to win, the worse you play. Learn how to win and winning isn't so special any more.

    Immigrants are generally law abiding, motivated and hardworking, the fact that our own systems (borders, welfare) are complete shit can't be blamed on immigrants, however many come.

    swiss_democracy_for_all got a reaction from The Generation Game 🙌 in The normalisation of female obesity   
    This is a question of expectations in the Anglo-Saxon cultures, exactly the point of the thread. We’ve come to expect women to get fat as they age.  Very few previously good looking Swiss or French burds would ever allow themselves to get in that state. She’s a lazy fat burd who can’t be arsed to look after herself.
    Now maybe, maybe she might be a jolly energetic fatty who just likes her food and drink and has invested her effort in raising her kids instead of herself, always positive and fun to be with and never complains about her fat “genes” or other bullshit, in which case yeah, you’d love your now-fat wife anyway and it’s ok. But I doubt it, there aren’t many like that.

    @spunko Would it be possible to put up a warning message on all Guardian and Independent links that are posted?
    Something like 'by clicking "Continue" you are bringing web traffic to the Guardian site and thus helping them to propagate their left-wing fascism'
     
    The message could be a bit more neutral as well..

    Nurses becoming mostly fat lumps is one of the great tragedies of modern life for young men IMO, the profession was a reliable source of sexy, down to earth young women up until the 90s.

    @Turned Out Nice Again is absolutely correct.
    I wasn't aware what topic he was talking about when I first read this topic (I am now), but I've seen the pattern in question several times.
    There's 4 posters who I've seen do this most often (all of whom I like), one who I suspect is often drunk when they post here.
    At the end of the day it's really just about manners. Any conversation, real life or online, occasionally veers off a bit, and there's banter ect which is great but it ruins conversation if that's taken to the extreme.
    And it's a straw-man to say "oh @Turned Out Nice Again wants everyone to be serious and on topic 100% of the time"; that's not what this is about.
    Unfortunately the only solution is that people need to think a bit before they post. Remember, this forum isn't just about you, and you don't have to reply to every topic you read. It's OK to have nothing to say on certain topics and either not want to read the topic, or read it and just don't bother posting on it.
    I've been a member of online forums like this for about 20 years  - i.e. before social media was a thing - and I think the reason I like them so much (over social media which I never liked) is that the quality of conversation is generally better than the inane small talk that makes up most of real life chatter. The ability to think before you post, and sort posts into topics, facilitates this. If you end up with just a bunch of inane small talk in post form, shat all over various topics, it really ruins what a forum is or could be.
    And remember, if you want an inane small talk area, just make a topic for that. Simple. But if someone has created a topic because they want to discuss a specific thing, please show them a bit of respect.

    Funny you should mention that!
    There was a post on @Turned Out Nice Again's Romance Corner thread which reminded me of the episode Men Without Women where Fletcher gives out relationship advice to the other inmates. It then transpires that he's having marital difficulties of his own and is granted a weekend of compassionate leave to sort them out. Of course, it turns out that the whole thing was just a scam entirely engineered by him to get a weekend break, and that he's pulled exactly the same con trick in a previous jail.
    As for hats, my mate Beatrice recommends this Irish bloke, Philip Treacy.

    I think there’s a case for people who start threads having the power to remove all the posts that derail it. Poor @Turned Out Nice Again, there are only about 3 relevant posts on this thread. 
    What say you, @spunko ???

    Please stop derailing serious threads with off-topic drivel.
    "Off-topic" means between- not within- threads. 
    @spunko How about a pinned "mindless chat" thread for posters who want to flirt and banter endlessly.
    Or as @swiss_democracy_for_all suggested, have a special type of moderated thread where the originator can delete the rubbish.
    The alternative is that every single thread fills up with this drek to the point of unreadabilty.
    Thank you

    My Grandad was a fighter pilot, his plane ended up going into a French field like a meteor, luckily without him on board. 
    He spent the rest of the war in a seriously grim stalag, making camp magazines freehand, doing various bits of espionage and avoiding getting shot.
    You had a better chance of survival being general infantry than you did in a bomber. Those guys had balls.
