    Totally agree.
    I find here pretty meh, especially compared to numerous other starlets in Hollyweird. She must have had something that wowed Ginge though. I wonder what it was

    She's interesting.
    Like many plain women that appear highly attractive/sexual she doesn't bear close scrutiny. She just knows how to display herself. But look closely, and she's decidedly 'meh' in the looks department.

    Yes, you can see her appeal to Harry after his dating one self-entitled sloane after another. Most men are vulnerable to a woman who knows how to act and what to do in bed.
    I am surprised that Charles and Grampa apparently did not arrange some serious, um, experienced ladies for Ginge when he got to the age where his willy was getting a tad firm daily. Surely it is what Uncle Louie would have arranged back in his day? That is what the upper classes do don't they?

    According to the bint on BBC News the Oprah interview show has been extended to two hours from an original ninety minutes due to high level of interest.
    Talks are underway to buy the show for UK broadcast.
    Described as The Meghan Interview with an appearance from Harry.
    It sounds perfect for ITV.  
    In a perfect world everybody would simply ignore Megz and Haz as we do on here.

    Last night's sunset was better for a pic. Full moon always difficult to make look good, other phases much easier.

    We control our environment. We can turn on the heating, make clothes from seal skins, turn on the air conditioning or wear just a loin cloth to enable us to live over a wide range of temperatures and habitats. 
    We are unusual
    Other species have a much more restricted thermal niche. If the temperature changes rapidly they move if they can, or they become extinct and this uncouples food webs.
    It often seems that humans think they are separate to the rest of nature, rather than completely reliant upon it.

    Hopeful reacted to snaga in Climate Change   
    I think humans can't grasp the concept of geological time, showing graphs of CO2 levels changing over 250 million years and then concluding life can adapt in a few decades.
  10. Agree
    Hopeful reacted to snaga in Climate Change   
    because for the past X million years life has been adapting to decreasing CO2 levels. If conditions reverse too rapidly, you get mass extinction events.

    All you need is space, space that works, and a dry roof. It doesn't matter what it looks like from the outside
    As I try to explain to friends that 'fall in love' with how a house looks form the outside,  you spend most of the time inside looking out

    I think you have covered the reasons why I joined that club
    What else could be added?
    Perhaps having a personality that is earn it before you spend it so seeing others achieve on tick what you strive to achieve is demoralising.
    Seeing a system where the fruits of your labours are creamed off to support people doing considerably less, often those people are either the ones doing the creaming or at least the loudest supporters of the system.
    Seeing the rise of people for whom their fake status and how it is perceived by others, is their be all and end all.

    Hopeful got a reaction from JFK in Doing the bare minimum   
    Most, if not all, of the job adverts I now see, ask for such a diverse set of skills (in return for a low salary/junior position) that it is clear to anyone with a brain that the person writing the advertisement can't have a grasp of any of them nor realise that their ideal candidate can't exist. They really are seeking to employ the chief cook and bottle washer.
    One of the Universities I was 'at', the VC announced proudly, to the assembled guests at an awards ceremony, that, 78% of their graduates aspired to work in the civil service. (I feel that I must say I only set foot on that campus 3 times a year .)

    Hopeful got a reaction from Bkkandrew in Solar Power Milestone   
    I don't know the gains to be had, but it has always struck me as madness that all the new homes going up in the UK don't have solar installed on the roofs, mandatorily. Trivial cost. Similarly it has always puzzled me why we cover good agricultral land with solar (an installation near me on land that used to grow barley has brambles now covering the panels and saplings growing up between them) rather than upon factory roofs.

    Also ur all jobsworths
    i regularly send emails at 3am
    i never work a full 9-5
    im always working 1-2 hours and then have massive breaks
    last time I went to a job 8-4 prison job I lasted 6 weeks
  20. Agree
    Hopeful reacted to Covid19 and life to go in Over keen colleagues   
    That's me all over but mainly as I fuck off just after lunch pretty much everyday to spend at least half of my productive waking hours doing exercise and other stuff I want to do before using the last shreds of my resolve and care replying to easy and/or usual work bollocks.

    Hopeful reacted to wherebee in Doing the bare minimum   
    this is so incorrect I actually laughed out loud.
    For example:
    here in Australia, GST is 10%.  In the UK VAT is 20%.  So you are already paying double what I am for just about everything except food. income tax threshold Oz - 18k.  UK - GBP12.5k (roughly similar) next band, Oz 19%, UK 20% - more in UK next band Oz 32.5, UK 40% - more in UK I can park at the beach for free. In the UK the council near my old mates neat portsmouth were charging 15 quid.  fucking hell I can use the barbies in the local park for free - gas supplied by council My house rates last year were about 5k aussie.  In the UK you'll be easily double that etc etc etc etc
    The UK is horribly crowded in terms of people AND taxes.  Don't think anything else.

    Saw one today. Road kill. Unfortunately a few raptors had got to it first. Still, it's good to share
