    If you were a terrorist then pretending to be drunk and out of control, or having an accomplice doing the same, would be a good way to disguise what you are actually up to.

    Absolutely. This is clearly the plan. If there's a risk of any passenger plane doing a 9/11 then it will be blown up.
    Only part of this I've been pondering over the past few days is who makes the call? The pilot? "Hello, we have a disruptive passenger who may be a threat to the aircraft. Please scramble fighters and destroy us."
    Or is there remote monitoring from the ground?

    It's hard to tell.
    Caprio is small and pretty wimpy which makes him appear effeminate yet Rock Hudson was an all action macho man and we all know what was going on there.
    Though I agree that you don't get the roles he does without doing "favours".

    I doubt it, otherwise she'd have left in an ambulance, not a police van.
    Funnily enough I was on a flight with a disruptive passenger last week.
    Cabin crew must be thick as fuck. I'd already clocked her in one of the smoking rooms in Schiphol as being absolutely shitfaced (bearing in mind this is 8am), she was telling a bloke how she was going home, being repatriated from Albania (wtf??) And hadn't seen a normal man for months. As soon as I heard the accent I knew she was going to be on my flight.
    So we all board, she's obviously hammered but the cabin crew keep giving her booze, a bottle of wine and 2 bottles of champagne. Then she pulls her own vodka miniatures out. And all the time she's making more and more of a show of herself, getting louder and louder and behaving worse and worse. Pretty much sexually assaulted the bloke sat next to her. So by the time we land she's completely off her tits. Carrying on, shouting, jumping about. We all get off, she pretty much runs to passport control, goes through and I thought she'd had a lucky escape.
    My bag never showed, so I was hanging around waiting to fill the form in and she gets marched past by 3 coppers, in floods of tears and screaming her head off that they 'don't know what she's been through'.
    I got talking to the baggage lady and it turned out she'd spat her chewing gum at one of the staff then started kicking stuff. Daft twat, she was just about home and hosed and very lucky to be so.

    What about gingers ? Very regularly described as feisty or hot blooded or whatever. I'm ginger. I don't give a fuck. I actually think there's probably some truth in it. Most people do. 
    So why is it perfectly fine for people to say something like that very publicly with zero issue. Yet if someone says similar about a certain race ? It's for some reason not allowed ? 
    Gingers are actually genetically different from other people. If you can come out with these things about ginger people for example - then you should be able to do the same with any manner of "group".
    It's the picking and choosing of what opinions are allowed or not that I have an issue with. Not the actual opinions themselves.

    Oh I wouldn't pin my hopes on that, I really wouldn't. 
    The family court system is a kafkaesque system that you just would not believe.  With my former experience of helping out with the local branch of a family/mens support group I have seen more fucking scenarios than you would believe.  Married / co-habiting / short-term partner / long-term partner / living in the same city / living at opposite ends of the country.  Mediation / amicable couples / at-war couples / social service invovlement / police / DV / drug use (both sides) / prostitution / mental health issues (both sides).
    I've seen it all.
    I've been through family court personally twice.
    I've helped others at family court hearings acting as a McKenzie friend.  I've seen good judgements.  I've seen (and personally experienced) absolutely fucking arbitrary ones.  And there is fuck-all comeback - the only route being the legal system you are already constrained in. You can't go to a arbitrator / complaints service. There is only the system, and it protects itself to the upmost.  Believe me, been there done that - had a solicitor fuck up my case at first, self-represented myself after that.  Done an appeal to a circuit judge (didn't get it), done statements, etc - the whole fucking lot.  Sat across from social services / solicitors / barristers (barristers are really decent actually, it's the lower pond life, the run-of-the-mill solicitors that are dumb. Social services are just evil fucking cunts of the worst devil spawn you can imagine).
    I've seen more social service reports / CAFCASS reports / wishes and feelings reports / police reports / solicitor statements / court judgements (some good, a lot completely illogical) than most of you in your lifetime.
    Believe me - the scope of discretion in family court (civil proceedings) are FUCKING HUGE. 
    why? because of the 'paramouncy of the welfare principle' which is underpinned by legislation - the welfare of the child is paramount.  This gives the state one fucking huge scope of discretion. And as all family court proceedings are private you're not going to be able to go and shout about it to the newspapers / social media etc.  Your MP will be useless. Most solicitors are more than useless and will just toe the line.
    Co-habiting or maried nor not will not offer you any special protection, again, the welfare of the child might require a roof over it's head - your roof.  And you can jolly well go and live in a bedsit.  I've seen it happen.
    Being names as the child's father confers you parental responsibility, obviously, a very very important thing to do, but even if you aren't named on the birth certificate but are the child's father - it doesn't matter a hill of beans to the family court meat grinder.
    As you may gather I fucking hate the whole system, it affected me so much all the shit I went through and helped others out in similar circumstances, that I had to competely step away from the whole sector after my case was resolved.  I just couldn't take the emotional fucking up of my head that I witnessed every month.

    Quite.
    It's hard to argue that $40,000's worth of facebook adverts swung the American presidential elections, but the full might of google is totally powerless in it's efforts to push its leftist, globalist agenda.
    Like maggots on a corpse the left infest the likes of google. A corpse that they should be revolted by, but the sweet smell of power and control is overwhelming to them.

    It is. The left are on a real money and power spinner with social media at the moment..China perhaps another good example with its points scheme for good citizens. I hope its cracked. Equally, a bit I dont want to entertain, says I might just be switching masters.
    I hope not. At this stage thats just an idea and not paramount. If we dont tackle whats in front of us now we will never get to that stage anyway.
    They have a monsterous footprint on everything and its influence is everywhere. The list is endless.
    Do this..do that..or else..

    Oh no.  Don't worry.  I wont be missing that date.  I intend to make a weekend of it..... some time after he's expired (assuming I outlive him)  I will be travelling into the town of his internment,  finding the local indian restaurant, and instructing them to serve me the hottest dish they can make and wash it down with alcohol until I pass out.  I am hoping by this time my constitution will be more fragile...  there is a certain amount of self sacrifice to this plan (or fantasy as Jo Brand would call it).
    The next day, I shall visit his place of burial and drop trou.
    Mark my words.
    It will be monumental.

    I have just read a very interesting fact about the  Serapeum granite boxes.  The volume of the box is exactly the same as the volume of the void.  This suggests a "press forge" method of manufacture.  In fact it is hard to come up with any other reason for such an odd dimensional anomaly.  So much points to the liquification of granite somehow.  Totally fascinating!

    It would appear that the Egyptians added writing later...in a very amateurish fashion.  It's a mystery how these structures got down there.

    They do something for their money: ceremonial parades, opening hospitals, lsitening to speeches, long formal dinners, foreign trips with the press clicking away at every moment. 
    I wouldn't want their job even with the money they receive.

    Absolutely she was superb back in the day.  When they married she was 38 and he was 30, both on their second marriages.
    She still seems fun so it's probably a win-win on both sides but yes women do age faster than men from about 50 - 65; hence why a 38 yo man marrying a 30 yo woman works better as they will age similarly.

    I am hearing from the youngsters and not so youngsters at work that WhatsApp or Instagram, I forget which or it may even be both, is the one they use.
    Facebook is going the way of Friends Reunited particularly because it is often used by parents to keep an eye on their children.
    Hey, sharing your social media with your parents. That's hardly what a hep cool cat would do.

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from maynardgravy in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    It would be an interesting linguistic study to see when and why the establishment media outlets started to redefine the word phobia.
    A phobia is an irrational fear of something such as spiders. The person with the phobia is the victim of this irrational fear.
    The first redefinition was the transition of xenophobia, fear of foreigners, into being xenophobic used as meaning hating foreigners.
    The person with the phobia has been mutated into the aggressor rather than the victim.
    The next IIRC was homophobia. Again this started with fear of homosexuality - genuinely the case in the certain schools where boys were warned to avoid certain masters - and then was changed into meaning somebody who hates gays.
    Transphobia is the new kid on the block and this has stretched the language to breaking point.
    People may be genuinely fearful of transexuals; though this is brushed under the carpet.
    It is also used in a sense beyond the previous two which were limited to being redefined as meaning hatred.
    It is now the case that if you do not recognise a biological male or female as being the opposite purely because they are dressed differently and "identify" as the other then you are transphobic and guilty of wrong think.
    Surely this is the end game now where a term that meant an irrational fear has become applied to people who are doing no more than recognising biological reality.
