Good looking people & abuse
Posted: 11/7/2009 9:30:13 AM
Just noticed two of the most (physically) attractive people that appeared on my matches recently mention in their (short) profiles that they are here to repair the damage done by long term abusive relationships.

Assuming rule of thumb that people generally match up with equally good looking partners and thus the 'men' involved here are also lookers , questions:

1. Do good looking people feel they can be more abusive in a relationship because they think they can easily get another partner?

2. Do people stay in relationships just for looks ?

And additionally, is it wise to focus purely on a recent abusive relationship in your profile?

Men searching for single mum's
Posted: 9/25/2009 3:02:26 PM
Mizphitz
Think your logic (or lack of it) is sad or warped.
As I have previously stated men such as myself may prefer to date single mums for reasons that are connected to their attitude due to having children not for for the sake of those children.
Women using such sites may believe that this way ensures the potential date is truely aware of their family status and they come as a unit rather than offsping as bait. Sick thoughts indeed.

I just find women with children less selfish and self-centred generally (not all) as they, like me, have to consider others more in their day to day life.
They are generally more understanding of the time you need to dedicate to your own family.

St George's Day Parade...
Posted: 3/1/2009 3:31:34 PM
So where was the The Antonine Wall if the Romans province of Britannia never included any of Scotland.
By your reckoning it shouldn,t include Wales either because some of that held out too.

All this is moot anyway because originally the Romans used the word for the whole island (once Albion) before they failed to conquer it totally when it then became a reference to their occupied territories - not England & Wales.

St George's Day Parade...
Posted: 3/1/2009 9:36:26 AM
Could never understand the choice of St. George as the English national saint. What connection or relevance. Bit like our hero worship of Richard the Lionheart , who hated this country. Thats history, myths , legends and religion for you.

MayDay has more relevance for me.

Even though my mother is Irish & my father was Anglo-Scottish
Would rather see a single UK day than split the countries up. Our nation is the UK.
(Flame me , I know)

Should we have Devon, Berkshire , Yorkshire etc days too ??

Religion versus Atheism.
Posted: 2/16/2009 4:30:05 PM

Atheist (as all good commies should be).


Why ? Not logically linked. Would think pure religious believers make the best communists? Plus who said atheists don't do harm?

There is no paradox here and no faith, only a conclusion based on existing evidence not the extrapolated "lack of evidence" illogic.
Not aware of this belief system I have absolute faith in laid down by Dawkins, but know of many I have absolutely no faith in.

Posted: 2/16/2009 3:32:38 PM
who is this angry atheist Moron calling a donkey?

Not angry - just bemused by stupidity


are you the only atheist in the world?

Nope but it only takes one example to invalidate a premise


anyway..the crusade was for money and wealth

There were several Crusades not one and their primary goal was religious - educate yourself.


.northern Ireland is pure politics .

Religious based


as people of similar faith live side by side for centuries

Tell that to the Cathars for example. Then what about those of differing faiths that do nothing but fight each other


jihad?/ do you even know the meaning of that word?

Whilst , like many words, it has variations in meaning - I fully understand it in the context of my use of it in answer to your previous question asking about wars started on religious grounds. You stated there were none. Jihad , along with Crusade, is the epitome of such.


what was germany's religion?? national socialism

No NS was it political direction whilst Christainity was the major religious make-up of the people & to most extents its leaders.

atheist are pro- abortion,pro -every drugs to be legalized,pro-war,pro-prostitution ,pro-lowering the age of sexual consent ,pro-drink drive.....


You are a donkey.
I am an atheist and am anti-drug,anti-war, for a higher age of consent and definitely anti-drink drive so where does that lead your theory?

Anyone for a Crusade ? Jihad ? Northern Ireland ? Arab/Israel ?

germany 1930-1945 - no religion - where did you dream that up?

Posted: 2/5/2009 5:11:04 AM

The clash got given a punk title, they were good but a bit sort of commercial to call it punk


Just soooo wrong. The Clash 76-80 were so punk - don't think you realise the influence they had on the movement. How many times did they support the Pistols in those early days 76/77 - can't remember but they always seemed to be on the bill together.
And commercial - ha! You jest.

ITV's cock up during Everton v Liverpool cup match last night on TV
Posted: 2/5/2009 4:47:18 AM
Sad not to see the goal live after watching the rather poor footie.
These things happen so I don't think it is a sackable offense.
The joy of seeing Liverpooh lose and Gerrard off made up for any disappointment overall.
Especially after the tragedy/mockery of the Anfield 'burglary' on Sunday when Lampard was sent off instead of Gerrard and Liverpooh scraped an undeserved win.
Almost believe in karma now!

where did all the matter come form in the universe
Posted: 12/2/2008 2:30:56 PM
Andyaa


See someone hasn’t rushed back to explain the mass 5 and 8 gap problem and the person that blurted stars? is that an answer or a question.


It was the answer - the simple version.
Big Bang nucleosynthesis is responsible for the formation of hydrogen and helium according to the Alpher-Bethe-Gamow theory and stellar nucleosynthesis is reponsible for the heavier higher elements according to Bethe's later theories.

Your confusion regards the other posts you have made follow from your misunderstanding of space-time curvature (non Euclidean geometry of the universe), the effect of relativity, gravity and assumptions such as some galaxies not travelling relative to us at light speed. Will really throw you to find out that the edge of the observable universe in any direction is about 46.5 billion light-years away! And this is easily explainable to a clever person but to semi-quote you - I'd hate to dumb you down.

Posted: 11/28/2008 10:54:50 AM
surely logic tells you that :- whether there is anything in the universe or nothing ,in this state it MUST be endless in ANY direction. how can there be an end?? is there a brick wall somewhere with a sign on it saying, " THE END OF THE UNIVERSE".

Bad logic.
You are right that it doesn't have an 'end' but wrong that it is endless!
It curves round on itself - its not Euclidean as a whole just when 'localised'.
(Like the world's not flat just appears like it locally- damn another arguement arising.)

Dental Holiday
Posted: 11/18/2008 9:15:23 AM
Has anyone here had experience of or know anyone who has tried dental treatment abroad?

Having met with a larger than I could cope with group of young hoodies in town a while back, my teeth are now in need of a bit of TLC (like the rest of me really).
Really cosmetic - couple of chips need fixing.

As I like to travel anyway and haven't done much E.Europe thought I might investigate subsidising my next trip via needed treatment costs.

Many of the good local dentists seem Polish etc anyway.

Thoughts/comments/experiences?

Thanks.

University
Posted: 11/16/2008 9:45:52 AM
all courses run or proposed to be run by Unis are subject to the strict control and audit of the Quality Assurance Agency


And this Agency/process is failing severely.

Having been out of my field for a while (10 years - I retired early).
And when I was working in computing we had a saying - if you went away for a long week-end whole architectures and technologies became redundant & were replaced by new, so 10 years would seem eons.

Decided to get back up to speed by signing on for another degree , Internet Computing, at a fairly well known old Uni.
Yep I could have done it on my own but thought that the interaction with similar minds would be better than sitting on my own doing it.

Boy was I wrong , the course was a mixture of trivial, innaccurate (read wrong) , irrelevant and with content that would be considered dated when I left work.

I tried to 'correct' one lecturer by explaining the statements she made about something not being possible by showing her something I had done as a commercial project about 15 years ago. Not interested.

I tried to discuss curriculum & content with the course designer (co-incidentally my personal tutor) - not interested because the course had passed its quality audit.

Tried to 'rally' the undergraduates , explaining to them the trivial stuff was a time-waster and overall the course needed an injection of reality or their degree would be worthless in the real world. Response: the easier it is, the more time we'll have to get p*ssed and still get a degree.

Finally I quit and got my fee back after threatening them on grounds of Trades Descriptions.

Degrees dumbed down I think.

So we are in a crisis basically caused by global overborrowing so lets make it cheaper/easier to borrow more. Really makes sense to me.
Surely its time to encourage sobriety in peoples attitude to easy cheap borrowed money. Why reward people who have overborrowed to live out of their means ?
Why accelerate the pyramid borrowing?

Mature women and younger guys dating
Posted: 10/29/2008 6:39:54 AM
Older woman/younger man or older man/younger woman ?
Age is but a number - its what you have or make in common that matters.
Once you're over about 25, both parties are mature enough to form a bond based on mainly personality - though the physical often has a strong influence.
My last relationship was with a girl 15 years younger and before that 10 years older.
Neither I saw as a problem regards age and both were my equals even if different areas of personality or abilities. And to me thats the key.

Is Swindon right to ban fixed speed cameras in their town?
Posted: 10/23/2008 12:16:14 PM
Simple : Fine pays for up keep of equipment (or it should) and for the expensive process of court action.

People who complain about being done (and fined) by cameras only have themselves to blame. Don't speed.

Disagree with comment about being able to do 100mph at night in town when 'safe' - how stupid is that.

calaphate for the muslim nation
Posted: 10/8/2008 4:30:56 PM
Beg to differ with you Mr V - normally admire your posts.

A caliphate is a physical domain as a caliph is both political leader as well as religious leader. It is not akin to a papacy/pontiff. So would claim dominion over lands where they subjects lived.

A new caliph for an unified muslim state is doubtful if not impossible.
One political & religious leader across multiple modern nation states is a pipe dream of a few usually extreme muslims.
A caliphate is not a country or place as such but an over-state. It ould if happened cause immense political turmoil not just with the west but intra-muslim.

Can't stand the current trend for woolie hats - even in summer in the pub! Don't get it.
Think hats can look good on occasions but often at weddings why do women wear such awful examples.
Don't wear them myself often socially but do when out walking in cold, on my pushbike, on my quad or motorbike.
Wear them for novelty in shows I do.

Most say I look better in a brown paper bag apparently.
