    Well I for one appreciate your counter perspective. We all need to be pulled up every so often otherwise we start to believe our own bullshit.

    Always look after the people who clean the toilets and empty the bins. Work is just somewhere we all go to make money. Maybe it's your big money for your house/pension etc. Maybe it's just pocket money for beer and the bookies. We have no idea who people really are or what they are really capable of based solely on what they do for a job....nor when we might need their services.

    Does a state of emergency mean he can ask for money from the worldwide disaster relief fund (with 100% of it coming from Mexico)?

    The Generation Game reacted to Austin Allegro in Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 2   
    But the EU has agreed a deal. It was Parliament that rejected it.
    So the post is meaningless unless Mr Davis is referring to some new deal that's being cooked up, which seems unlikely as Brussels has made it clear they don't want to negotiate one.
    I had to chuckle at this post from 'Judy McDowell' who describes herself as 'anti-Tory, anti-Brexit'.
    Anyone who wants the UK to leave without a deal is a traitor - plain + simple. It would strip us of so many rights, and the majority, the "non-rich" will suffer economically and socially, with some likely to lose their lives.
    This strikes me as Remainer misconceptions in a nutshell. We are not being 'stripped' of 'rights' - it has been made clear that EU law will remain on the statutes until such time as it is re-examined after which time it may be repealed, or may not; subject to the due democratic process that all British law is subject to. She then makes some vague assertions about suffering economically and some people losing their lives - why, is there going to be mass hari-kiri after Brexit?   The level of ignorance and emotional 'arguments' is just breathtaking, sometimes.

    There is something fundamentally insane about a 700k council flat being in a 'right to buy' scheme.

    A few observations:
    Only a couple of weeks ago, @One percent posted about "Terrorism, a game for all the family".
    It was an article about a 30-year-old woman who "gloated that the Westminster attack was 'the decree of Allah'." From north London, she was jailed for 19 months alongside her brother and husband, who shared sickening messages in a family WhatsApp group. The judge jailed her brother for 25 months and her husband for 15 months. 
    Two brothers from the family had travelled to Syria in early 2015 and were believed to have died in the fighting. 
    The Old Bailey heard that the family downloaded and shared ISIS material while bragging: 'We are embedded in their societies, we are the enemy within.' 
    I still shiver at the underlined bit in bold.
    On this thread, we're discussing a woman who actually went to join ISIS - not merely someone who shared WhatsApp messages - and wants to come back to the UK. A woman who has, as @Frank Hovis pointed out at the start of this thread, "no regrets" about what she did.
    Not only that, but seeing heads in bins did not faze her.
    Who here among us doesn't remember the pre-Christmas discussion on Dosbods about the Scandinavian girls who were beheaded in Morocco? I remember it only too well because of the horrendous nature of what was put under our microscope. Some had watched the video of one of the beheadings. Gruesome beyond belief is how those who watched it would have described it. I didn't watch it (I heeded the warnings about what cannot be unseen), but read the description of the beheading. I'm still shaken by it. A frightened girl calling for her mother as she was being hacked by a knife.
    I wasn't there, I can only go on what I read.
    But it certainly "fazed" me - and that's putting it blindingly mildly.
    Do we really want someone not fazed by such horror walking among us?

    His main problem is he is operating under a self imposed glass ceiling "I cant get a girl because I'm not 6' tall" or "... I'm a computer programmer" (you know who you are). FFS if either of those things were true I'd not be sitting here with 50+ notches on my bead post and I'm fairly ordinary looking and introverted as fuck. The thing is that women are not going to be remorseful about blokes self sabotaging, the opposite in fact, such a thinning of the herd is exactly what they want to strengthen the gene pool.
    If you are here reading dosbods then you have it within your power to slay those bitches because while you may not have the perfect job/height/muscles/wealth you have what neither the natural born chads nor the incel wusses have: the ability to self reflect and reprogram yourself, a good proportion of what you need has already been aired on this thread.
     
    EDIT: just to add ...
    Introversion is not is a weakness, it is a super power if you deploy it properly.

    Sort of - but you have to be careful of that bullshit 110% stuff.
    And, when you are doing new or brain stuff, its very hard to determine who your A people are esp. in a short (less than 5 year) period.
    You really canopt hire A+ people because you normally dont know who they are.
    Besides, Jobsy had a very D- liver or whatever.

    Besides, it is dull working with people who are less clever than yourself. Working with people more clever is stimulating and if you provide a good environment they will stay until they need to move on when your reputation will then ensure there are a number of good replacements applying for their position.

    I'm sure that would make good tv.....
    I read once of a group of soldiers on an "escape and evade" excercise that spent two weeks in the middle of a roundabout. It's one of those places that you'd drive past and never think of searching.
    A lot of bridges have "secret" rooms in them. If I wanted to go missing I'd probably hide there.

    None of it matters really. The MSM decided long ago, I suspect, that although they could not dig any dirt on Trump, they would nevertheless just keep stirring and raising accusations, like flinging sh*t against a wall in the hope that some of it will stick. It has worked reasonably well as most people I speak to (in the UK at least), even quite right wing Brexiters, seem convinced that Trump is at best a joke and at worst, downright dangerous. Conversely, any dirt on the Clintons, Obama etc just rinses off because the MSM uses Trump stories as a deflection shield. Sadly this will continue for the rest of Mr Trump's term and his second, if he gets one; in the long run however the historical record may be more kind to him when the sky-screamers have finally quietened down.
