  1. I'm inclined to see this activity as a means to get young Manks women to shut up and go to bed?
  2. There are some scary people out there! Or should I say, there are some scary people in power out there! Each to their own... This question goes out to all the pagans among us. Does anyone know what, why or how there's a relationship between why we celebrate Hop tu naa and then we celebrate the mid-winter Solstice???? And correct me if I'm wrong, (which I maybe) but isn't tomorrow (2nd Nov 2009) the true hop tu naa...???
  3. Are you taking the piss? Your son was ill enough for you to call an ambulance and tie up paramedics, and you're saying it's nothing? You're entitled to your opinion mate, but don't you think using words like 'tie up paramedics' a little condescending. Was I meant to do something else. Sorry I wasn't clear enough for you to understand. It's pretty obvious there was no diagnosis and I don't think anyone will be properly diagnosed unless they are on deaths door. But of course you could be right, I could just be hamming it up for attention. On a probability scale, I think Swi
  4. Ah pish posh media rubbish. Let me tell you my story. and then you might have a better understanding on how things like these nice viruses spread among us so easily. Many people around me seemed unable to come to terms with the possibility that we had swine flu. I was finding myself bewildered as to why people were playing it down to the point of thinking I'm a hypochondriac. Starts off with my little lad (4yrs) getting croup and struggling to breath. Well my little boy started sleeping all day on sunday and we thought he was just tired. By early evening he was struggling to brea
  5. Oh, yes, those good old days where half of the Island would be unemployed after September each year. Those good old days, when they parked buses outside the dole office / job centre so people didn't have to wait in the rain. Those good old days, when people were put in 'Winter work gangs' to get them off the dole, digging up roads. Those good old days when a career was either with the IOM Bank, Steam Packet or Government. Anything else was only found away from these shores. I tell you what, you ####off back to those 'Good old days'. I'm fine here thanks. Do me
  6. £100+ for nutting someone is great value, is it me or is there a pricing scheme for doing these sorts of things..??? How much for biting someone's ear off? I suppose he got away with it because he's such a good boy, and this sort of behaviour is out of character for him; or maybe Moyle thought the person who got nutted deserved it! Does anyone know what provoked him? http://icnewcastle.icnetwork.co.uk/0200spo...50081-14667450/
  7. Manxman2 - you do realise that they will continue to stab at everything you say until you get bored and quit.
  8. What I'd give to have seen the look on their faces when they realised they had lost control. :lol: It's always nice to know there is now another safe driver (or two) on Manks roads. Or at least they will be careful drivers now they have a better understanding how quickly it can all end. That which doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
  9. I wonder what the churches roll was on this tradition. I mean, wasn't the Wren associated with the druids.
  10. My only criticism for MilitantDogOwner, is that it's a bit silly to think (some) sheeple on this forum have the scope and ability, to understand your position outside the realm of their own little worlds. Eh, before you lot start, that includes me. Also, what kind of cock?suck'n fag makes a joke about another man's wife. I do have a suggestion though; how about these bands meet in a place that won't upset those of us who don't believe in all that religious Christ shoit or don't have time for it. Go to a more public venue! That way, if I don't want to give you my money or listen to your
  11. Having Bill Malarkey 'on board' with Peter Karran was a massive asset. At least having a seconder will allow the motion to be debated and then voted on. And that is where our politicians' true colours show. No seconder, them the motion will drop like a stone off the end of the Victoria Pier. We should listen to what Peter Karran has to say to the motion. If you agree with it but your MHK (or for that matter, any MHK) doesn't second it then you should ask them why. If they don't have a damn good reply then they should consider if they are worthy of your vote at the next election.

    As a country, we don't want to default on a loan, so retrospectively approving it was the right thing to do. I agree, the right thing to do is smooth over and honour these agreements. It's a way of Tynwald showing responsibility, the buck stops with the treasury etc.... Now send the right message, sack all who were involved; otherwise, we risk the same thing happening again.

    Who...? Deemster Moore's laws. :lol: Why would you give a crap about such a monumental screw up. You sir, are not even a native of this country; so I think I'll take your opinion as biased. ChinaHand. So you think he should be left to run things after all that has happened.

    SACK HIM!!!! My personal view is that he knew exactly what he was doing; either that, or he was hoodwinked by Proffitt. In any scenario, he should be sacked. Mr Lewis is either dishonest or stupid. I personally think he is a bit of both.
  16. Short answer is no I don't think so, it's more of a revival to help separate Halloween from our own 'purer' custom. Hop tu naa has it's curruptions thanks to the church. The not so short answer is Mee Houney is Manks for the month of November, so when you see or hear Oie Houney it means November's eve; and another name for November is Toshiaght Gheuree, which translates as the start of winter in Manks. The problem is not many people understand the true meaning behind this festive time of year; as to what it means or how to celebrate it. The Celtic month starts with a new moon, so we are

  18. Totally agree with you there B. It's easy to see how the Nazi party got such support back in the 1930's. Sounds to me like several Nazi's stayed here when they visited us back in 1936. Hell, even our newspapers (back then) were preaching how similar we all are... We're all living proof Nazism is still going strong. Taking choices away from people is the realm of the weak and scared. How many of you like a drink.... How many of you will look back at this thread and reaslise you were in the process of losing your liberties 'bit by bit' when they start to ban alcohol.... I believe it'
  19. You feel it's acceptable to accuse someone of discrediting their own point of view with snide remarks and then proceed to call someone a 'dick head'. By your own admission, you just discredited your own point of view. If you genuinely can't see your own hypocrisy in this thread, get a grown up to explain it to you. Another grand contribution to this debate by ANS..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep it up ANS, repeated aphorism doesn't make for a stronger case; you don't like what I say, so don't talk to me if you can't be civil. Hell we all have a snipe from time to time, but repeatedly
  20. you discredit yourself with snide remarks like that IMO Another grand contribution to this debate by ANS..?????????????? Keep it up yessir xx Lost login. I disagree. If those against fluoridation win, then we save our water and keep it in a pure and healthy condition; those who need fluoride can get it via other means, just like supplements in some food products. If the Gov't win, we have a chemical added to our water supply that might or might not help and might cause health problems in several ways. Riddle me this! How do people in none fluoride areas with healthy teeth,
  21. 'Be afraid' is the impression I get from this statement. It also puts weight to what I was saying about political pressure being put into play to help scare the shoit out of everyone, in preparation for poisoning our water supply IMO. Slim. not really a fair, intelligent and balanced comment IMO; you discredit yourself with snide remarks like that IMO. The peoples 'Choice and opinion' appear to be overlooked, how obvious that Anne Craine spouts this in the media. Not a real concern though, I think more people tune into this website to find out what is really going on than listens
  22. I think the debate keeps fouling on statistical stability and truth. My personal opinion and after reading this thread, is that there is no good argument for or against fluoridation; it's almost a political debate which is mostly down to personal ideas and beliefs etc. Do we want a rather volatile chemical in our water, or transported on our roads; and is it going to be worth the risks. Or should this debate not be better looking at real alternatives, rather than going around in circles.

    Thugs!

    Carry on taking things out of context why dont you! All I am saying is is that there is a difference between a good hard punch and a bit of a poke on the arm. That is to say in the seriousness of the assault. If you think that the latter constitutes a sustained attack, then perhaps you should pay a visit to the prom on a fact finding mission. I am well aware of the difference between a good going over or a fairly harmless poke, I've had my fair share of both in my time. As I said I don't know what happened in this instance, but I'm sure that the courts took the facts into consideration whe

    Thugs!

    so you punch people in the hope of not hurting them then?? wake up. ha ha, yes judge you see i was moveing my arms back and forth in the air, judge: u mean punching yes sort of like punching but i was trying to cool me hands down as thay were hot, and then this person just walked in to them, judge: o well thats ok then case dismissed judge awards damagers to man who hurt hand, Jamie Lees of Castletown deserves £3000 and a medal for confronting this idiot.
