    This made me chuckle: "Unless you count tofu-eating, milquetoast, pantywaist, beta, snowflake, self-flagellating, Mom’s-basement-dwelling, environmental science graduates as men. Which I’m not sure I do — and they probably wouldn’t identify as men, anyway, so I don’t think I’m being judgemental here. "

    this is a very good, often LOL read about St Greta:
  3. This oversensitivity to what people say or have said is seemingly an Anglo Saxon thing. But where does it come from?- intriguing. The majority of the planet, meanwhile, live in an entirely different universe. For example in Hong Kong (one of the more globalised/ enlightened Asian states) 2 lawmakers are involved in death threats and desecration of graves. The reaction is primarily a roll of the eyes and lets just get on with things. In the UK every comment is analysed and taken to a whole new level of interpretation and analysis, its bonkers. Junios Ho's 'death threat'
  4. Always thought Georgianne Walken was punching above her weight as Christopher could have had any woman he wanted in the 70's and 80's. But credit, he has probably had a wonderful life with her and as often seems the case, they have grown into each other.
  5. Don't forget (when using the remainers rule book applied during the EU elections), Brexit parties won 30% of the vote and remain parties 10%. So resounding vote to leave.
  6. Yes, A friend of mine (Remainer) posted this on facebook saying how afraid he was and made comparisons with 1933 Berlin. All I saw where good humoured very ordinary Brits voicing their opinion and concerns respectfully. The teenagers talking of indoctrination was interesting. I chuckled at the ' oh no, not the Guardian'.
  7. Owen Jones at a Brexit Rally
  8. $44m settlement for Weinstein Quite a price for freedom. You would think if his behaviour had been truly abhorrant they would want to see him behind bars. edit..there is a criminal case to follow, could end up behind bars
  9. Good - Wonder Years Bad- Seinfeld
  10. I actually quite like Four weddings, but that sketch was utter utter bilge.
  11. Couldn't TR become an MEP now it appears Britain is heading towards a Brexit extension and participation in the upcoming EU elections?
  12. He moved to Hollywood in 1986. This must be his "nearly 40 years ago". Otherwise he is referring to London. I doubt there where "black areas of the city"anywhere in NI during that period.
  13. My 3 passionate remain friends have seemingly accepted defeat. Now claiming they don't care anymore. Acceptance is coming, lets hope an olive branch is not offered.
