    Apparantly men prefer "things" and "systems" while women are more interested in "people & emotions".
    I'd say I'm shocked, but that's an emotion, and I'm a man so bleh, tell me something I didn't know.

    Corbyn is an anti Semite, and all-round Jizzlamist. I could never bring myself to vote for him,  as much as I despise the Tories right now. 
    Let's assume that Treason faces a vote of no confidence tomorrow, does that force an immediate leadership campaign?

    i think this will gain popularity.

    Battenberg reacted to TheBlueCat in The purpose of this site   
    For me the point is that there isn’t a point. I’m fucking sick of things with “points”. Everything with a point ends in gulags, thought police, virtue signalling, anti-democracy marches and a whole load of other crap we’d all be much happier without. Long live pointless stuff I say.

    We used to tell ours that each time they misbehaved during the run up to Christmas, Father Christmas would take a present away and replace it with a parsnip. 
    One year a wrapped a parsnip for each of them.

    Battenberg reacted to The XYY Man in ASK FRANK...!!!   
    So here it is - the DOSBODs "killer" thread.
    "Ask Frank".
    Ask Frank Hovis anything you like - and the Cornish Confucius will talk some fucking sense about it...!!!
    He's good.
    Very, very good.
    And also an accountant - if that isn't a contradiction in terms...!!!

     
    OK - I'll kick it off.
     
    Hi Frank,
    I'm going to an early-80s weekend soon - Box, or Harrington jacket...?

    Battenberg got a reaction from MrPin in Do you sew?   
    First thing we made in form 1, now referred to as year 7 was an apron. Red striped for the girls, blue for the boys. Everyone had to make one and then they were used for home economics. 
    I had one of these when I was little so started young. I love sewing , crochet and I’ve made a few large Bucilla Christmas felt kits. Don’t do enough now. Too busy ipading.

    Battenberg reacted to null; in Bloody telephone scammers   
    I've done similiar on occasions
    This is also good fun, something along the lines of - "This is a crime scene, I'll need to know how you got this number and take a few details to assertain your connection to the deceased"

    I have an old photo from the turn of the century showing his last known mountain location reportedly close to an old exhibition centre on the side a river.
    Now if only we could deduce the precise location we could rush there with our Aldi budget brand hiking accessories to save him..

    Battenberg reacted to Van Lady in Bad taste now a hate crime..   
    I must have “bad taste” because that made me laugh out loud. I’m sure that there are folk out there though who would think it was a great and fitting memorial symbol.
    There are many different viewpoints.
    I loathe folk who think they can decide what is or isn’t bad taste.
    When I grew up and until recently I knew what a crime was. You know like murder, assault, robbery, arson, breach of the peace etc.
    I don’t know anymore. At a future date I could be hauled out my bed and executed for laughing at a candle!

    Battenberg got a reaction from gilf in Bloody annoying phrases that make me want to break the telly   
    People who leave it,her, him etc off the end of sentences. Such as ‘hope you enjoy” or ‘im going to go with”. It’s as I’d they’re far too trendy to finish the sentence and they leave it hanging. My examples aren’t great but I know what I mean.

    Battenberg reacted to Austin Allegro in Bloody telephone scammers   
    Yes, it's quite good. I got it set up for my mother who was being plagued (10-20 calls a day)  by scammers, telemarketers a day. Now it's down to one or two a day at most, sometimes none at all.
    An alternative is to buy a call-barring box, they cost about £30 on Amazon so in the long run they work out cheaper than BT Call Protect.
    Another method is to simply use an answerphone with a message stating 'Please leave a message, if I know you I will pick up immediately. Commercial calls will not be answered'.
    Or just get rid of your landline! They don't seem  to use mobiles so much for scamming, though I do get calls once a fortnight or so.

    Battenberg got a reaction from Libspero in How very rude   
    Mr B and I went for a weekend bunk up in Weymouth a few months back. There were two blokes at breakfast and one of them was swearing. I shouted out at him “do you mind”. He apologised to me and the rest of the room. That said a lot about him. He hadn’t realised he was being so loud plus he was having a proper blokes talk with his mate. His apology went a long way.
    FTR, I swear like a trooper. Mr B says he heard less swearing in the naafi. I just don’t like to here it when going about my business. If you’re talking to me and you swear I don’t mind at all. If I over hear a conversation with swearing I hate it. Not sure what that’s about.

    Sat wtching Dr Who and think I’ve got a full house on my pc playing card. 
    I think they’ve got it all covered. Well done to the writers and the So-Called BBC.

    Battenberg reacted to JackieO in Another loon converts to islam   
    Sinead's very fucked up.
    Oddly she railed against Roman catholic church and it's authoritarian nature....which was understandable after she spent time in a Magdalene Asylum aged 15.
    She she's also campaigned for women's rights and against child abuse....
    Whilst having 4 kids by 4 different blokes.
    To top it all then she goes for the most authoritarian religion of all
    -when in the past she denounced all organised religions-
    A religion that hates women in general and especially faithless whores like her.
    A religion that it is ok with child sex aka Mo n Aisha and various numerous Roper gangs that have raped/gang raped a multitude of kafir children!
    I have felt sorry for her in the past but no longer.
    She's a thoroughly selfish POS who only cares for herself when as a mother she should be looking out for her children FFS
