  1. Thanks for that link, everything I need and more, much appreciated.
  2. Are you talking about the traditional chewy dried fruit where they replace the natural goodness with a mixture of oil and sugar, or the newer type of freeze dried fruit where it is dry and crisp, but very fruity. Usually eBay is great for finding just about everything, but finding decent bulk sources of things like freeze dried strawberries seems quite tricky. Many thanks for the suggestions, never thought Tesco's, seemed more of a health thing. Newer type is what I am looking for, the strawberry & raspberry versions seem very good, haven't come across any others so far, it's
  3. Anyone know any sellers of dried fruit, specifically but not limited to strawberries and raspberries? Tried health food store in Strand Street, no joy obviously, any help appreciated.
  4. Twat. Timing is everything...ManxTaxPayer, you really are a total cunt.
  5. Nope, just don't think this is the place for me.
  6. Bernie Sanders, very original. Let's imagine there are nine MHKs [feel better?]. After praising Peter Karran for representing over ten thousand are you now suggesting each one of the imagined nine could not represent just under nine thousand?
  7. If you look in my second topic "Foul language and it's usage..." you'll see I suggested I probably only had one more topic in me, and it would be Manx Politics - so this is it. Like most people on the Island I suffer from a severe case of apathy, and if you are offended by this comment please don't be, I mean me and everyone else, definitely not you. This apathy doesn't stop me thinking, it just stops me acting on those thoughts, a bit like everyone else probably [except you]. I also stopped voicing my opinions at the same time on the basis of "if I couldn't put up I should shut up.
  8. ??? I concede, I'm clueless as to what your post means.
  9. I hadn't realised I was such a t*at... I remain humbled, ashamed and moribund, clearly there is no redemption for f**kwit such as myself.
  10. Big neon sign seems a bit of a stretch, however I am sympathetic so here's a list of comments that will be adopted and should be disregarded immediately on sight: Bar steward Gosh darn it D*mn Oops F**k Rollocks Kant Whoops [Oops x 10]
  11. Each to his own, nice twist on the asterisk but technically the vulgarity is implied, not within.
  12. Never thought you were suggesting that directly wasp, and my apologies if it read that way, proves my earlier point about the written word being more easily understood! As for ** - I prefer those and free speech gives both of us the choice.
  13. "I suppose the forum moderates itself in terms of what's deemed acceptable language, what you permit will continue and those that are genuinely offended by such language can and often will fuck off. It finds it's own level." Again this misses the point, I haven't suggested swearing in the various topics is either acceptable or unacceptable or that it is offensive. I have suggested it's tedious, boring and I'll add inane. I have only one other topic posted so far, and that was pretty interesting, at least for me, and inbetween times on that topic I've wandered through the various for
  14. At least the joke's funny. There was a similar one that did the rounds in the Royal Navy, Jack the Lad is up before the Skipper, but won't stand still, keeps leaning over from side to side, crouching, turning to look behind him. Eventually the Skipper loses the plot and asks him what he is looking for "Justice" replied Jack
  15. Actually the goat thing is rather good and an excellent demonstration of the correct usage of foul language in the written form, sadly the rest of the grammar [or lack of] serves as a distract to the central theme.
  16. Gettafa had it nailed on when he said it's the silent comma it's a replacement for saying "erm" Quite possibly. I think it's generally accepted that comments in e-mails and forums etc are more likely to be misinterpreted or misunderstood and more likely to cause offence or even hurt than if spoken out loud, as such it would be reasonable to argue that the use of swear words in the written form would be the lesser. Would it be fair therefore to argue that there usage, particularly when not particularly relevant, is intended to offend? I think it is part of the evolution
  17. "Hey there Redundant are youna fucking shrink or something ?" Argumentum ad hominem part three, no I'm not a shrink but I am something, just not something that would start a discussion on foul language and its usage for professional reasons. Curious perhaps, bored probably, fond of language less befouled probably, rotund almost certainly.
  18. Well that sounds as if the written word has had its day and potential authors may as well pack up their pens. Is swearing on forums only used under the protective cloak of anonymity? Would the obscenity users post under their own names? Is it just posted to add a touch of forum tough guy/gal credibility? Are people suffering from Coprolalia? I used to find the use of foul language offensive on here, but now I find it rather fascinating. Wow, and yes I did have to look up Coprolalia. I don't find it offensive, I find it wasteful, pointless and not particularly humorous and

  20. More outraged than someone that never mentioned outrage? I appreciate the correction, if I can figure out how to edit it, if that is even possible, I'll go back and change it. Just followed it back, and realised it wasn't my original error, my self esteem is clearly at a low enough level to assume it was, but the appreciation still counts! Also outrage was mentioned, but only in a speculative sense. I really shouldn't have replied to this at all :-( Rewind.
  21. "Do people swear at you a lot?" Argumentum ad hominem part two, and no, not that I am aware of, perhaps they save it up for when I'm gone, in which case, who cares.
  22. It's an argument but one I'd have to at least partially disagree with. In the original post I have, albeit reluctantly, conceded that swear words do have their place in the written word, and yes I'd agree that might be the case in terms of a certain level of emotional context. But I don't think that can be argued successfully in at least a large number of the posts to these forums. Again I am not suggesting that swear words should or should not feature, that is free speech, I more question the validity and relevance, given it takes longer to type than speak.
