Re: Time zones in America

So 25 men in the Alabama state parliament think that they need to make decisions about the women body. Yes that is clearly medieval. On the same primitive level as the ISIS guys are. Shame on you! I do get irritated by left wing supposed feminists who consistently treat women they disagree with as ...

Yeah the Northern Ireland situation is awful. I agree totally.
So maybe complain about your country rather than ragging on mine?

Re: Time zones in America

Unlike in the UK, where if Jeremy Corbyn where to be elected PM and he could pass whatever he likes, that isn't how it goes here. Someone should mention how easy it is for a Prime Minister to pass whatever they like to Mrs May... I get what you're saying but: doesn't she rule with only a minority d...

Re: Time zones in America

I'm not sure I understand. Has the abortion law changed in Georgia and Alabama, as is being reported across the world? Or.... not, as NWFS asserts? Yes, but these laws will be immediately blocked by the courts. The goal, of course, is to reverse Roe vs. Wade. The Republicans are hoping that one of ...

Re: Time zones in America

When bills pass, they have to go through the courts if one side sues. This process can take many years, and quite oftentimes bills that are popular and voted for overwhelmingly still get overturned. America is a place where laws have an incredibly difficult time getting on the books when controversi...

Re: Time zones in America

From what I understand, despite many valid criticisms of its government, it is the case that in North Korea,.abortion is readily available and accessible to women if they require it. Apparently this is one area where North Korea is setting a fine example. Yes, throughout all 3 trimesters. Just like...

Re: Time zones in America

It's my understanding that in Alabama abortion is now banned in all circumstances, even in cases of rape or incest. If so, that's medieval, and genuinely evil. Am I wrong? The US does not function as the UK does. When a locality passes a controversial law here, it will have to go through the courts...

Re: Time zones in America

To someone from a small country like the UK the fact that the USA is so large it spans several time zones is interesting, but it can also be a little confusing. So for my Western European friends I made this handy guide: Hawaii: GMT -10 hrs Alaska: GMT -8 hrs California: GMT -7 hrs Chicago: GMT -5 ...

The older you get the younger you realize old people are.

Discuss.
I feel old. My knees creak, my back cracks, I've found some grays, and I've got scars/burns on my arms. I'm also 25. When can I start feeling young again?

Re: May Ghost Ratings Published

I’ve actually tried to make it happen in the past but as a parent I’ve only a small window after kids bedtime i could fit in and being on a west coast time zone things tend to be pretty quiet around here at that time of night. Damn those kids. Luckily for both of us, I work at night - nights I'm of...

Re: Breakfast Food

If I'm planning on being awake that day, then coffee and nothing else. If I need to go to bed after breakfast, then it's eggs, and either sausage or bacon. Nothing puts one to sleep better than grease and copious amounts of ketchup.

I like New England and am from there. By happy coincidence I also like the NE Patriots. Fire Squad is a group joke from work - it also makes me sound dangerous ;), so I like it

I assume you’re east coast? How many hours do these games typically last? 2-3 hours. If that will ever work for you, please do let me know and I'll try and find players and make it password protected. I'm not big on press but I'd play this. Though 2-3 hours is ambitious. Lol It is (and welcome in a...
