    Re: A true story of heroism

    Oh that's a lovely story. Hope everyone is okay now. Dogs can be amazingly loyal, pushing themselves above and beyond for those they love. <3

    Re: Free booze... or not...

    I saw Dave Allen live in Cardiff many years ago. Laughed so much I wet myself! :D

    Re: Free booze... or not...

    :D Benny Hill produced some classic moments!

    Have you ever come across the late Irish comic, Dave Allen? One of the funniest ever - not sure whether he made it in the US though.

    Free booze... or not...

    I can't help but smile when translations go astray. In Wales, virtually all road and street signs are bilingual, and many of the larger stores have bilingual signs indoors too. Mostly this is...

    Re: Objective Morality

    tHANK YOU! As far as I know it's just my own musings on the subject of morality - in fact I had a discussion the other day with someone who believed that there had been no moral compass before...

    Re: Respect

    I always called all my bosses, male and female, 'Sir.' Spelled C U R. One very nice woman boss was known as 'Chief.'

    IME A little bit of rebellion always went a long way.

    Re: Respect

    I have never responded well to people who demand my respect. Couldn't even get me to stand for the national anthem in the cinema when I was a child, which was very daring back in those days... ;)

    Morality is often just a stick to beat the dog with.
  9. Re: End Of The World Lines That I Heard Them All

    Try the Restaurant at the end of the Universe... 'Drink up, the world's about to end...'

    At least, it's a bit funnier! :D

    I don't blame her either. I think my language would have been a lot worse and I'd have thrown it at them!

    Nobody rants like a Welsh Mam...

    This elderly Welsh Mam was not happy with her birthday present. But the rant is worth watching - taken by surprise, she tells them all exactly what she thinks of the 'gift' and of them... This is...

    Re: Golden Age VS Modern Age

    While I agree that often things are not as they seem, please don't come out with 'facts are fickle things,' because they're not. Not if they are really facts. It's the state of knowledge that tends...

    Re: To smack or not to smack?

    The studies you quoted are old and out of date. If you haven't read them, it's better not to quote them. You raised the question of studies and then say (above) that you don't really care about them...

    To smack or not to smack?

    Wales - for a small country - is curiously progressive. It had 'opt out' organ donor cards instead of 'opt in' ones. A Welsh Politician, the great Nye Bevan, introduced the National Health Service....

    Re: Golden Age VS Modern Age

    The oldest house I ever lived in was about 400 years old. I've never lived anywhere less than 100+ years. Shelter aspects weren't too bad - the walls were thick, the roof (provided it was kept in...

    I don't think it merits a duel really. And a willingness to do battle doesn't really show us how important an offence is. Some people take offence (and even kill) over the most trivial matters. As...

    So is this really blackface?

    Nailing my colours to the mast before I start - I dislike blackface intensely, along with Golliwogs and all the things people try to excuse as just a product of their time. However, sometimes I see...

    Do as I say, and not as I do

    Of late I've come across a number of 'pagans' who have set themselves up as leaders and teachers, yet their political and general beliefs are so far out of sync with what they claim to believe that...
