Re: Happy Birthday, i_like_1981!

Let me start by saying... POST #1981! Thank you Earl, Agent 47, Fat Man, Lewis and ChrisOH for the birthday wishes. Yes, 30 today. A rather important birthday indeed. A new decade of life begins... Earl... thanks very much for starting the thread. I appreciate that. And don't worry about the name on...

Re: The "I will be away for a while" thread

It seems like we have maybe a dozen or less now who post with any regularity. Not quite a dozen... but a considerable few. Enough to be noticeable, let's say. Why do you think there are less active members now than in the past... I suspect that the 4chan raids discouraged a lot of former members fr...

Re: How to refuse to do sport?

Well, I can't say I'll miss him. He didn't give much material for serious discussion, did he? And once again, Earl, I have to congratulate you on your choice of a very appropriate image to sum up the situation. A picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words at times. :D Best regards, i_like_1981 [/col...

Re: The "I will be away for a while" thread

Thank you for complimentary words, 1981 -- it's now 6 p.m. Wednesday and the connection seems to be working OK -- it was sputtering last night after being off all day yesterday. Don't worry, I don't plan on going anywhere! :D Whenever my internet breaks down I just tend to switch off the receiver b...

Re: United States presidential election, 2012

I take it you're rather cynical about a lot of the candidates for next year's election, Earl. I'm beginning to think that next year's election could be a victory for Obama. The Republicans just don't seem to have a real ace up their sleeve this time.

Best regards,

You just don't see things like that where I live. I tell you something, on a grey day, my area just couldn't get any more monotonous and dull. What would I be able to say to somebody who I didn't like? "Go jump in front of a bus." Yeah, how original. But over in the desert regions... imag...

Re: More Rioting Sports Fans

Here in the States, there was a notorious baseball-fan beating a couple months ago: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/04/giants-fan-critically-beaten-after-dodgers-home-opener-team-rivalry-may-be-factor.html Just another "sports builds character" example.... :roll: "Sports b...

Re: The "I will be away for a while" thread

well, I'm kind of back...I'm now able to get online hit-or-miss, but still have trouble with some sites. So, I'll do the best I can for now! :| I hope you get your internet connection sorted out soon, ChrisOH. We need you round here. It's getting a bit quieter round here now, I've noticed. Anyways,...

Re: United States presidential election, 2012

Any further indications as to who is looking likely to take the Republican presidential nomination for 2012? I think that Ron Paul is the most likely candidate to take the republican nomination as of now. I don't really know of any of his policies, but he seems to have a pretty strong following. Hi...

Re: I feel like being MEAN ...

I knew that communism had rather a large impact on the world in the 20th century but I never knew it killed as many as 100 million people. That's extremely disturbing - nearly twice as many people as there are in the UK now. I'm guessing that a large amount of those deaths were caused by Stalin and ...

Re: More Rioting Sports Fans

And on and on it goes. This has been going on for years. Rioting is a way of life for these people! You're certainly right. I don't remember these events personally, but in the 80s there were several stampedes at football grounds which resulted in many deaths - the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 kil...

I find that image rather disturbing, but it really does sum up the WeakMincingSissy. :D

Re: United States presidential election, 2012

Obama has been here in the UK quite recently. He got chance to meet the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, as well as have some more discussions with our Prime Minister - something similar happened two years ago, I think, back when Gordon Brown was PM. I don't think, though, that the frien...
