  1. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    [QUOTE=Thorbjorn;244748]Taking a detour off the rails for a moment... why do redheads/gingers get looked-down on? :=S: I think ginger men are absolutely stunning. Prince Harry is a hunk, I've done...
  2. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    BMH - stay on track please, will you? You started this thread. I more or less agree with you and you tell me I ought to be more upset about something else.

    No way to run a discussion...
  3. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    I don't have a problem with a dark skinned, dark haired Little Mermaid. Just as i didn't have a problem with the Bollywood version of Pride and Prejudice - thought it was great. And there was one...

    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

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

    :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... ;)

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

    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...

    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....

    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...

    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...
