  1. So, from July 1st it will be illegal to light up in the workplace or in any pub/club or restaurant or any other place where people gather.... there is also talk of banning people from smoking in their own homes and cars.... two ways to look at this, firstly tobacco has been a legal social drug for well over 100yrs now and to simply ban an addiction is not going to make the problem go away, the amount of revenue that the Govt. make from smoking runs into billions a year, if everyone simply stopped who would fund the likes of the NHS etc? The other way to look at it is its a nasty habit that causes cancer but some people drink themselves into a grave and others do so through eating too much.... I wonder how far this Govt. will go to intrude on basic human rights.... I wonder what is next on their hit list.

    Aye, but (apparently) you produce robots for the Chinese, secret fusion reactors for the French, and gleams of hope in the eyes of Iraqi war orphans as they watch you parachute from the skies to build them a magical bridge direct to Santa's winterland toy workshop, so it's not really a fair comparison; mainly because everyone else don't really stand a chance since most choose to adhere to some sense of reality when assessing their lives. I am not the only person ever to sell the Chinese robotics, I have never done any work for the French in any capacity and I parachuted once for charity.... I don't believe in santa and drones are boring.

    What a charming representative of the Southern states you truly are. You need to unload that chip off your shoulder really because all you actually seem to contribute to this forum revolves around sleuthing through threads looking for anything that dares to criticise your nation and then responding with some pithy diatribe about how misrepresented you all are. And if that's all you have to say, then maybe you need to reconsider why you're even a member here now that your internet boyfriend (heh) has crawled back under his little rock. You really are a sad little man.... so full of self loathing and an ego to span an ocean.... I bet you weren't very popular as a kid in school.... I imagine you were very much picked on.... the kid who sat at the back of the class picking his nose and making rude shapes out of plasticine.... you revel in the title of mod on a small board as its the only status you are ever liable to have.... unlike you I work hard for a living and get my kicks out of what I produce rather than hiding behind a keyboard dosing out crass remarks to people who you wouldn't have the nerve to say boo to in person.... There is one true description for a person like you and that is "coward." Thank dog I have met many manx people in my time not to base them all on the like of you.

    What Football Team

    I am an avid Evertonian and a bit of a Tranmere Rovers fan as they are most local to me.... my Grandad put me on the path to Everton when I was a kid and when all the lads in school supported Liverpool, I stood out like a sore thumb in blue but I still carry on the tradition today and I am glad to say we are all blue in the merriest way. Who do you support and why?

    Ever Had....

    Have you ever had a time when something lands in your lap that you weren't expecting and got quite excited by it..... only to find out you can't do it anyway..... as something like work stops you from doing it? Its supposed to be summer here in England but you tell the weather that.... I could have gone on a bike run for a couple of days over some of Europe but a matter of work has conspired against me. Ever looked forward to something only to be let down?

    It sounds like you have gone through a bit feelslikeitshould and I admire your strength and determination.... I bet you have the best result you could wish for in a child and that was down to you. I wish you well.

    Abortion....

    I'm one of the people and here is what I have to say - you're an arse. Also, I just don't understand why you've asked a yes/no type question on a subject that has such a wide scope of permutations and consequences. Wear your name with pride my dear..... you were an exception.

    Have You Ever....

    Have you ever experienced bullying?.... be it in school or work or simply on a forum? Bullies like to think they are big and clever and this fills the lack of self esteem they need so much.... inflicting pain on others gives them the rise they need. When a bully is put in a corner he/she will become the most pathetic and squirming character you could ever meet and even engage some sympathy from you as they are ultimately gutless beings. I was bullied in junior school to a great extent, where I used to hide when school closed as a certain group of boys used to congregate at the gates and wait to beat me up as I left.... this was a giggle to them and they revelled in it..... my pain was their gain and one day it all turned around and I fought back and made the bullies cry.... how pathetic they seemed but I broke one of their noses and was suspended from school for being a bully.... how ironic? Anyone else?

    Abortion....

    Would another topic do? why not abortion.... it is fundamental to the Catholic church right now..... as for attention seeker you must have a hard job dealing with all these topics or are you merely back up for a friend? If you read back I think you will find I have made my position clear on this. Is this kick Jake day?
  13. Jake

    Abortion....

    Many people argued that you were fundamentally wrong on a topic, proved it with demonstratable evidence and you refused to admit that you'd made a mistake and then flounced off the forum. I don't see the comparison between someone not quite understanding what I meant, then accepting the explanation when offered. You could have said that in PM to me but no..... you have proved in your own words the need to try and rattle me..... I agree I talked some rubbish on the carbon thread but there is yet to be one scientist who can prove the carbon effect..... if you wish to resurrect that thread, then I will gladly join in on a serious basis..... I have to ask the obvious though.... what has it got to do with abortion and why do you bite your dummy so hard?

    Abortion....

    Tongue in cheek can range from a truthful statement meant awry to a comical one..... ans please let it lie and stay away if you can't contribute to the thread as I feel you single me out somewhat and any thread will bear that fact out where I appear. My own feelings on abortion is that it should be a woman's choice and simply her choice alone.
  15. Jake

    Abortion....

    I was pointing out in a sarcastic way that making 'tongue in cheek' comments about rape and abortion, as Jake did, isn't smart. I thought it made sense. Perhaps not. When I did what you have just done..... you went for my jugular for doing so.... how hypocritical can you actually be?
  16. Jake

    Abortion....

    How's that paranoia working out for you there chief? There you go again with your bullying of words..... you are supposed to be a moderator and not an argumentative injector..... you need to learn when to take some of your comments to PM and spare us all.
  17. Jake

    Abortion....

    Rape and abortion are always subjects primed for witty asides. And any subject I care to mention or comment on is always a primary source of your continued relentless campaign against me.... so why not stay off this thread and let the people speak for a change?
  18. Jake

    Abortion....

    Only as well as you do..... or what you believe what you read in the papers. What I know or dont know is irrelevant. I'm asking for your evidence to back up your statement. If it's your opinion that it is the case, then that's fine but you've stated it as an absolute fact. Show me the evidence that this woman was raped.... I am not interested in whether you belive 45p tabloids..... you base your opinion on their comments and have no facts at all to back their claim as the 'rapist' neither went before a court or was convicted. My original statement was tongue in cheek but you choose to play with words..... like you believe all you read in the Sunday Sport.

    A hedgehog trained to scuttle up and down the table from guest to guest makes an unusual mobile cheese and pineapple cube nibble dispenser at cocktail parties..... What is your idea of an unusual food dispenser?

    Of course it counts honey.... a simple nights sleep snatched from you is not only mean, its unforgivable.... I suggest you lock him out and wear ear plugs.

    Like I am supposed to know that thread had been covered before..... I am sure threads are covered over and over again each day..... anyway, people do change their minds.

    Abortion....

    Even worse... http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/busi...icle2148165.ece I have to say that there a very few 'rapists' who go through the courts to get access to the kids they have been a party to.

    The keys remain the legal property of the legal owner and any third party would be wise to hand them back but moreover the first party would be wise to change the locks as has been mentioned for their own sake as keys can be copied.
