Yeah but did you jump into the bay?

Sorry, I feel I've missed a meme here.

So your creator is a lousy architect, not taking into account the relative pressure on his dome, and an even worse forward planner, in not having a fire team in case of failure, I’m not sure we can trust this guy.

We were invited to Lincoln Universities end of year exhibition of work a few years ago, rooms of work done by the various faculties of art, some of the sculptures were excellent and the jewellery was really good but the room with Art Installations was risible, a sizable work of hay bales arranged in a spiral and section of plaster-board with a hammer stuck in it with some hazard tape across it were memorable in a, you have got to be kidding kind of way.

We, (my partner and I) listened to some guy who was clearly one of the tutors, explaining conceptually why a frame made of plastic guttering with a photo of a river in it had exited him, my partner saw me glancing towards the hammer, took my hand and led me to the fire door where we stood discussing how its bold use of nature’s warning colour, belied the underlying comfort of its form in a dangerous situation, although we clashed on whether its opening redness in perilous circumstance was a yearning for a return to the womb.

They tried moving the aliens to a black site in Saudi Arabia via wormhole, something went awry and they're blaming the Iranians.

Ok, fuck it, the supposed thing with this is someone that supports Trump will say it isn't art. Someone that does not will think it's art.

So your OP was that Trumpers are simplistic people with little education, and are proud of the fact?

I think it’s a piece of crap that I wouldn’t give house room, it might go on the fridge if my children had done it (at about 4-5yrs old), but not for long, which is why I’d make a terrible art critic and parent. I would however rather have that on my wall than piss on Trump if he was on fire, does that give you an answer?

I think I’ve relayed this before but probably on the other site.

When I was about 9, we had (religious) Assemblies in the morning where we would sing hymns, it was a bind, and nobody really got anything out of it other than a numb arse. This one morning the song to sing was Amazing Grace, it’s not a bad tune but I’d never paid much attention to the words, but as I sang this particular verse I was struck by an immense wave of dread and mortal horror, such as only a child of that age can feel about the vastness of time and space.

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright, shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun

What this seemed to be saying, was that, sitting here, bored out of my skull singing a song to a deity I really didn’t have faith in, that should I get to heaven then all I would do for 10’s or 1,000’s of thousands of years, would be morning assembly, I decided then that a god who would even countenance putting people through that sort of torture for its own aggrandisement (should one even exist) was not for me.

Maybe any deity becomes confused, listening to the prayers of millions of people all of whom see a different aspect of their maker, interpreting his wishes to align with their own.

Sports people asking for faster times or spectacular goals to enhance their standing, students asking for the question that they have learned to be on the paper before them, a nice day for their excursion, revenge on those who have slighted them, all wanting their god to answer their prayers.

Schizophrenia, confusion and disillusion must follow.

I have to say that what usually makes me stop reading a thread is when Sandy turn up with reams of copy pasta that more often than not bears only a passing relevance to the discussion. To then accuse others of that is ironic.

Am I missing something here?
Between you, you don’t want to be challenged, you don’t like the moderation, it isn’t the society you want, surely the answer is to pool your talents and set “that” society up, rather than carp about what others have done?

I thought I was chief negotiator for the other site in the last round of discussions, came here in the flush of my youth with dreams of moving on to settle the middle east and reforming Oasis, but it turned out I was to be a good faith hostage, held until such time as certain byzantine conditions were met as to my release, whilst being forced to write cheery doggerel to maintain the falsehood of collaboration, but caught between Pizzamans jealousy and SCG’s need for more slaves, I have been imprisoned here since.

It's not football.
It’s Americas way of giving potentially dangerous youth an outlet for their aggression whilst selling stuff.
You feed them steroids, dress them as a cross between a power ranger and a medieval knight , give them a pointy ball stolen from rugby, tell them to throw it around and run into each other, stop the game the moment anything actually happens so everyone can rest, change half the team or let some nerdy guy have a kick & allow some old meathead time to shout at the refs’, mix in a few song breaks to give everybody a chance to buy fattening foods and teeth rotting drinks and then spend several hours trying to get out of the carpark.

Yay the Blacksox.

Sorry, I'll go away now.

« on: September 10, 2019, 06:05:24 AM »

I think if you look around the world at what armed forces regularly do to their own peoples it is patently obvious that a pole of soldiers who say “of course I wouldn’t” isn’t necessarily worth a hill of beans, and even where it is, the percentages you state still make for a massacre.

If you look at your Kent state shooting (1970), 37% of the national guard “admitted” to firing on the students, killing 4, paralysing 1 and wounding a further 8 in less than 20 seconds.

These were young low-grade soldiers in a tense situation in an atmosphere of distrust and rumour, but the dead were unarmed kids about 300 foot away from the 70 odd guardsmen who had already fixed bayonets, hardly a source of immediate peril.

We are an inherently violent species, everyone of us has in our ancestors, killers, who did so to get us this far, and sure, we like to think they were justified, but?

Goodluck to all, especially Crutchwater, who is my proxy.

However let's not get distracted. Perhaps this was media bait to divert attention and headlines away from something else.

You are right, I hate everyone excluding white straight Christian men. Women should stay in the kitchen and be used for breeding only. I actually hated black panther for obvious reasons and wonder woman was terrible and completely inaccurate. She spoke out of turn and didn't cook once.

Is everyone happy now? So ridiculous


So I looked up the Gillette add, and while it seemed to me to be over egging the macho man as I remember, kids fighting would have gotten a foot up the arse and told to pack it in, never looked on with pride, and it was a spectacular shot in the foot as a promotion apparently, it did have some relevant points about domination and maintenance of privilege, and I didn’t hear them “literally call most men evil”, and here is where we differ.
Conservatives by nature abhor change and generally rail against it, much of my extended family is of this ilk, “PC gone mad” when they introduce seat belts, and so on. The Lefties like me are more open to change (in my experience), thinking we can be better, rather than looking for safety in tradition.

The add I saw, could, if it had not been taken over by the urge to list every possible male fault, by putting a question mark on the tag-line, “The best a man can get”, been a really good advert, it failed because it was.


We can as humans be better than we are, if not then it’s all fucked, if my comments seemed scathing, it was a reaction to the underlying contempt that underscored the point you were making, which I partly agreed with, born from hearing this brand of conservatism through much of my life and knowing where the currents led. If I had that wrong, then my apologies.

Well I consider myself to be “left” but have no interest in those that push ridiculous agender, and I haven’t seen the Gillette adverts, so I can’t comment on that specifically, however what I see above is a pair of frothing volk getting very upset about something that would probably die a natural death (for the reasons they stated), If it wasn’t kept alive by angry paranoid men thinking there was a plot by female supremacists (and the left) to make them both, crochet, and superfluous to reproduction , I suggest you watch a Chuck Norris film and then get your woman to make you a pack-up and go hunt a Mastodon.

Yes, me commenting on a post is worked up? Me simply saying "I don't like things being changed simple for the lovely PC reasons"

Right

I am very close to not being able to care less.

As for your end part...why are you attempting to pull a left trigger? Ignoring completely what I or shifter has said and saying what you want when it is clearly what neither has said.

You are better than that jura


Because, it needs you and the Shifters of this world in counter point to the agendist’s (not a word, I know), to make this a story, someone makes a bad call on redressing what is seen by most as an unbalanced preponderance of white guys getting all the parts, and you have a jeering crowd form shouting “take that you PC man haters”, I don’t get it.
