"Why take it very seriously? Why not just chuckle and let it go?"

in other news, literally, on google.
i read that the mayor of paris is trying to sue fox news for stating that there are muslim no go areas in paris, where all but muslims are excluded.

But there are. Well there were. I lived in Paris back in the mid eighties and no one in their right mind would walk through the Arab Quarter at night.

Another amusing incident from the world of bollocks - this morning some bright spark decided to test the new NHS email system by sending out an email to everyone on the list - all 1.2 million of them. They possibly would have got away with it except that most people replied to complain. And not a few hit "reply all". The total number of unnecessary emails came to around 182 million. So, if you didn't get a reply to your question to find out where your cancer test results got to, you know who to blame.

p.s. just in case you wanted to know if your tax money is being spent wisely "Complaints to the NHSmail helpdesk have trebled since the email system was introduced in May. The secure email service is approved by the Department of Health for sharing patient-identifiable and sensitive information.". Wonder which giant non tax paying American company got this juicy little contract?

Even more bizarrely that same man, Kevin Wilshaw, despite his road to Damascus moment is remaining true to his thug roots by saying he wants to hurt all those (his ex-comrades) who don't know how it is to be forced to live a lie out of fear....

I've been reading about how an official Russian government department called 'The Internet Research Agency' also known as a troll factory and situated in St. Petersburg ran a Facebook page called Heart of Texas....that story is crazy because the Russians pulled it off by playing to an audience of gullible fools and Trump supporter types...people turned up to anti-Islamization rallies organised by the Russian trolls!

Slight change of subject......but still under the "You couldn't make it up" heading.......

Sooo yesterday morning at 8:40 I was out the door and in my car to head to work when I realised I had forgotten my glasses and mobile phone. Got back out of the car and rushed in the front door to head upstairs and get my glasses and mobile which I suspected would still be on my bedside table.

In a hurry though and reaching for the stair rail, I managed somehow to smack the back of my left hand on the corner of the wall at the bottom of the stairs......and heard a breaking/cracking/snapping noise.....looked down at my hand and the middle knuckle was not there anymore. Whoops.

Walked to the local A&E....X-rays.....strapped fingers....yesterday off work....appointment for today at a big Newcastle Hospital....today off work....bus into town cos I can't drive with a broken hand....friends having to walk the dog today cos I'm away at hospital all day....more x-rays....got shown my x-rays.....told that moving my middle finger may well cause sharp pointy bit of bone sticking up on the back of my hand to saw it's way through the tendon and fcuk up aforementioned middle finger.....told I need to go back on Friday and get a plate and screws put into my hand....so next is an ECG....pre-op....get told I will also need someone else to collect me and escort me home on Friday or they will make me stay the night in the hospita overnight ....also told I should also have someone stay the night on Friday night at home with me anyway as my left arm will still be totally numb and it's not a good idea for me to be alone.....manage to get the fcuk out of there eventually....bus back home....tomorrow off work again....Friday off work (naturally)....asked friends if they will walk dog again on Friday.....embarrassingly ask another friend to come escort me home on Friday afternoon.....yet to pluck up the nerve to ask someone to babysit me all Friday night....

What a total farce and all because I forgot to put my glasses and mobile in my bag before I came downstairs......

^^^ I had all this overnight stuff from my dentist prior to a surgical procedure.
I confidently told him that 'Vinnie' would probably be in and out all night.........
So that was alright.
Vinnie is my cat..............

Sorry to hear that Jacknher. Life changes so quickly in just the blink of an eye and in this case for such a silly reason. Really hope you get better quickly.

Apparently I may have posted too many times in this thread, could be because I'm talking to myself? Nowt new there.

BTw did you hear about the bloke who went fishing and caught a dover sole? he and his mate agreed it was too small so decided to throw it back but give it a kiss first (quite why was not in the news). Clearly the fish didn't fancy him or maybe he just had bad breath, s othe fish decided to try and swim down his throat where it got stuck and stopped him breathing. Luckily his mate was there to try and keep him alive whilst the ambulance was on its way. The paramedics managed to get the fish out and resuscitate the bloke.

Totally unexpected scenario and not one in the Compleat Angler but even so, who in their right mind would kiss a fish?

Messing about with a fish. Yeh I bet the fish was in hysterics.
Shame he survived, did the fish?
Almost one less fish abuser on the loose :)

I think the fellow that kissed the fish said he's not messing about with any more small fry no more.

There's a man called Keith Raniere and he's created an all-female cult called Nxvim (pronounced Nexium) where he brands the women with his initials and gets them to tell him their deepest darkest secrets in exchange for membership of the cult. If you go to his website he describes himself as 1 in 45 million.....his IQ is that high, I'm not sure what the maths are....but 45 million into 7 billion surely means his intellectual ability is matched by few enough and I'd love to know who the others are exactly. Butterbean definitely isn't one of them anyway.

How can you be so sure you don't have a doppelganger or trippelganger out there eh?

If there are more than a few of me out there I wish them well, it's not easy being me ...

I was watching the Irish version of the TV programme 'First Dates' where two men were set up on a date with each other and they looked exactly alike and yes, they did fancy the pants off each other at first sight (crazy stuff!) but a subsequent date proved to be boring for them both and it was all "It's not you...it's me! hold on... It's me...not you!" etc. If they'd managed to actually cement the deal by doing the deed, it would certainly have proved to be a complex situation...especially if they'd fallen asleep together in an awkward position resulting in numb limbs.

Ugh! If I dated someone who looked like me, I'd basically be dating my brother....too weird.

I have over the years had people swear they've seen me somewhere I've never been (story to the police)
But seriously I must have a few lookalikes.

It vanished for a good reason: it was a troll post, designed to have a dig at women. In a way, it's a shame these posts get deleted, because the salient counterarguments get lost with them. It won't be the last anti-women post he writes, of course; the more women reject his juvenile advances, the more he writes.

It was voted off, clearly.

I can't be bothered anymore. A couple of more threads in the same vein and I'll be giving up this forum for good.

Ruined by the anti women trolling.

People are intolerant man. There was nothing inappropriate on that threat. The author was merely quoting a newspaper and advancing a few questions. They wannit it deleted. Why; one must ask himself? (<- how do I punctuate that? anyone?) Prolly cause they didn't like it! It contradicted their assumptions that women are saintly or something. Crazy shite; pal. Crazy.

Anyway, cannae even discuss on here no more... bstrds!
