Big mood.

If I see a racist or sexist cartoon that was created to offend people, I think the artist or person showing it to get a reaction is a dipshit, then I move on with my life. I don't go seeking them out to murder them.

Again, if anyone feels like they have to defend a dead guy's honor by murdering someone, then they need to move somewhere where that barbarism is acceptable.


The bottom line is that the guy did NOTHING wrong.

Nothing.

Being offended is a hobby these days. Beats getting on with life for so many it seems.
What would Nasri do? Never mind.
What would Eboue do? Fall off the stretcher.
What would Auba do? Just f***ing score.

Some people who are not offended feel left out and are offended by that. ;)

Some people just need to grow up and get one with life, being offended is like a trend, it's like something out of a Monty Python sketch........Oh I am offended because nobody has offended me, don't look at me otherwise, I will be offended. :rofll:

Europe has an Islamic (might be Christian too idk much about the former Soviet republics) terrorism problem.

North America has a Christian terrorism problem.

Africa has both.

Asia has Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

Antarctica has penguins.

Dunno about Australia (Christchurch is only incident I can think of off the top of my head) and South America.

Just announced Sir Bobby Charlton, probably our greatest ever footballer has been diagnosed with dementia. A sad end for a great man.

Saw that yesterday.

I've seen dementia at first hand, and it's very sad to see someone go through it.

As did mine.

It was a slow decline over a number of years. He was still relatively mobile up until the end but on bad days he was essentially confined to a chair in a confused state. Although it was touch I'm glad that we were able to care for him and keep him at home.

It's the fear in their eyes that got me.

But... there were some lighter moments in the early days.

My father in law (RIP) kept saying that his TV was turning itself over to another channel. He'd go on about it constantly. I thought his neighbours might have a control that was doing it so I checked with them. No joy. I bought a new remote control thinking it might have been faulty. The same day he rang up and said it had done it again. In the end I said to my Mrs that we'd have to get him a new TV.

Then... one day we were at his flat and I was sat on his sofa with him watching the TV. The program went to and ad break. His mind wandered off and he started looking around the room... then he shouted, "See! It's bloody turned itself over!"

1.3 million over 75s have refused to pay their TV licence fee.

Good luck to them. If the BBC prosecute it will be the end of them as a publicly funded organisation.

The only reason I pay it is because I have a lodger, if it were just me in the house I'd tell them to do one.

Its about time those leeches started learning what its like to provide content for paying customers, not people roped into it by the nation to pay.

Too many jackasses out there using their platform for political bias rather than business.
