  1. ^ Yep. Also got a brain so know not to post it.
  2. Interesting. Is there an "insider knowledge" reason you don't use a smart phone?
  3. I usually scan through the forums in the morning while I'm taking a dump. Sometimes I'll post a thread with a simple question that tries to get people to think about something as I am interested in what other people think. The "if you had two nukes" thread is an example of that. It was half intended as a joke (expecting people to say Norfolk and Cornwall) but I was also interested to find out where other people thought bad things in the world originate from, rather than it being some morbid interest in bombing people. Then I go to work. I sometimes read and post a little at lunch time for five minutes. I don't post again until the evening and just post on anything I find interesting. I never go on the forum while I'm at work, not even on my mobile phone. I'm just too busy to do that. I'm on here more at weekends, usually at the same time as watching a film or documentary, or while waiting for dinner to cook. I would like to see him unbanned. Or at least allowed to log in and change his avatar.
  4. They've now changed it from the war memorial to (from left to right): Union Jack, England, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, England. More evidence of our failing education system.
  5. And don't forget people from bloody Ramsey coming down to Douglas and taking our jobs. Fckers!
  6. Because minimum wage is beneath everyone - it's exploitation. But wilfully not working is worse. I have always worked even if it was minimum wage or cleaning. A little thing called a WORK ETHIC. I totally agree with Hillshepherd - get slackers out working.
  7. They should send back all civil servants on over 35k.
  8. Did he do anything for private sector workers?
  9. There are plenty of lazy and unproductive workers from abroad. To suggest such people are a particularly local phenomenon is outright trolling.
  10. Most of the posts on this forum are better written and more interesting than what is in the newspapers. Mine are at least.
  11. Then why is it a stretch to say they're at least Manx? I'm not down and out with natural history but I assume they were here long before humans settled here. Anyway, I think they're beautiful, majestic creatures. One of the things I missed when I lived in the UK and far from the sea was the sound of the seagulls in the morning. I just love that sound.
  12. Depends what you mean by our 'work permit system'? If you mean handing brown envelopes under the desk to government officials then I would say no.
  13. Bit of a stretch that. That depends. Are they migratory?
  14. ? Ever heard of a laptop with a DVD player, sir?
  15. Correct, so why do people keep using it to refer to Jesus? It all started with some lame "comedy" film didn't it? Can't remember which one now.
  16. At least the pigeons and seagulls are Manx. If anyone has a right to be here, it's them.
  17. Bingo. Self-serving public sector unionism is what is dragging this island down. We need someone with a backbone to destroy the unions.
  18. How do people even hear about these bands??
  19. Happy 4th July - Independence Day! When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I don't think people fully appreciate just how bold and revolutionary the American War of Independence was or just how radical the Declaration of Independence and its advocacy of equality was. They were fighting against monarchism and tyranny to found a republic of the people, by the people, for the people. What a great inspiration to the rest of the world. I long for the day when the Isle of Man will become an independent republic. I urge everyone to read the Declaration of Independence; they might discover a lot of grievances which led to the American War of Independence very familiar in our own current situation. Two examples that immediately stick out: He [George III] has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. For imposing taxes on us without our consent. I am thankful for them helping us to defeat Nazism and Communism, two hideous and disgusting ideologies which shackled millions or billions of people under tyranny. God bless America!
  20. I personally see nothing wrong with this. Why should people have to give so much of money they've personally generated through their own initiative over to a government run by people who've never created wealth in their lives and just sponge of those who do? I bet even despite this they still probably paid loads of tax. You can't escape it entirely. And all it is is simple wealth redistribution, or legalised theft.
  21. Ooooh, we're famous! I don't see the problem really. It's interesting but I don't think it's a reflection on the Isle of Man or its financial sector.
  22. Maybe if we stopped bombing them on a daily basis, maybe they would be a little more amenable to talking to us. I blame the prohibition on listening to music or alcohol in the Islamic religion. They need to lighten the fuck up.
