    Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites

    A rookie error. Once you become aware of it you notice that most professional photographers or video camera operators (movies and TV) frame shots of attractive women’s faces to include the tits. It’s very subtle and very pervasive. Look out for it. Not that I’m complaining, you understand.

    PCP for New Cars

    Yes. My latest replacement company car (I know it makes no sense economically but it's my final fling before secondhand toyotas and Mazdas see me out). I've not seen too many others though, even here, which is chav city trader central.

    Outbreak of commonsense in the Army

    Yep, in the Falklands pretty much everyone would have needed this level of fitness. seems as a country we lack the capability on every level now to fight another Falklands type conflict. Hey ho. Cross fingers and hope...

    How to make democracy work

    That is a problem, true, but arguably what we have at the moment is a greater problem, in that the parties have too much power, such that the elected politicians, once in power, are representing neither their electorate nor their own views and conscience (except in a few outlying cases). The whole party whip' system is specifically designed to prevent them representing either of those. So, other than banning parties outright, how would you propose to rectify that situation? And to your second point, are you really so naive as to think people are, effectively or de facto, voting for the individuals and not the party? Really?

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    I’ll start this by qualifying that I think paedophiles are about the lowest form of human life, however... This evening, across all channels, the So-Called BBC are running a story about the police moaning because the meassging app Kik is making them formally ask for users details through proper legal channels rather than just handing them over. WT actual F! The entire thrust of this story is using the “ooh paedophiles are bad, mkay” defence to try and justify a campaign for the police not to use due legal process to gather evidence. The editor responsible for this needs to take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror. Then hand in their resignation first thing tomorrow morning and hang their head in shame.

    People have all sorts of unpleasant and idiotic ideas they dont like challenged or condemned. Paedophiles, for instance. Doesnt mean we shouldn’t as a society and as individuals step up and challenge and condemn them.

    How to make democracy work

    Ban religion from all aspects of public life. Nuke it from orbit, as it were. It’s the only way. All religion is about saying we’re gods special chosen people and you’re not (then extrapolated to greater or lesser degrees). How can that ever be compatible with a fair and equitable society?

    I'm under attack by the Workplace Diversity Nazis

    Agreed, but... When I got trawled over the coals for organising my own weekly trips to waffle land with Sleazyjet of Eurostab cheaper than through the company agent at the start of my current employment I was told it was a) so we were covered by company travel insurance and b) so they knew who was where in the event of an emergency. Both of which seemed fairly reasonable, TBH.
  9. And apparently pickled beetroot, so I have learnt on this place. And squats with weights, according to Matt the gymbro Geez, only the one with the Japanese haircut (#2) looks like he’s actually got any testosterone at all. And him not much.

    Croydon cat killer

    Having read some of the comments on the So-Called BBC website HYS on this I think both that and the police story might be a subtle trick to flush the perp out and incriminate themselves. About 1/3 of the posts are dodgy with the other 2/3rds pointing out all the many reasons a human would be behind this.

    Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    So she’s fine with her sons, father, brother, Male partner (hmm, maybe not) having their life fucked into a cocked hat by a false allegation, then? I hope if she has any of those, they grow some balls and tell her to go fuck herself and never darken their doors again

    School canteen spiked with laxative

    I read it a couple of times in the 80s, and although I liked it and it is one of the few books I can honestly say has had a lasting impact on me, I bought a knidle copy maybe 10 years ago when my Kindle was new and fresh and I was looking for stuff to read on long trips.... and it remains unread. I didnt realise how fucked up my original copy was till I compared it to a friends copy. Which just goes to show how weird it is.

    School canteen spiked with laxative

    My origional copy was misbound from about 2/5 to 4/5 through. Sections in the wrong order, sections repeated. It made an already weird read even weirder i can tell you.

    School canteen spiked with laxative

    Thats because like the BMW rider in Zen and The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance they cant deal with the medical equivalent of him having his lovely bike fixed with a bit of an old coke can. Just put them in a plain package and tell them that they are natural remedies from the health food shop or something.
