Re: Best first trak on an album of all time

What's this??? No Kylie Minogue tracks nominated yet? One interesting bit of trivia regarding the 1812 by Tchaikovsky is that at it's first public performance the enthusiastic chaps firing the cannons managed to inflict substantial damage to nearby buildings including, I think, a cathedral of some i...

Re: Well done Trump

In response to Daffy Donald Trumptoad's latest tweets on tariffs approximately $Aus45 billion was wiped off the value of Australian publicly listed companies on our stock markets. Well done indeed. I'm not that sure that Trumptoad's meddling in the affairs of Hong Kong will substantially benefit the...

Re: Porn is Evil

Are we going to have a discussion about the role of masturbation within the marital bed ? Or will we defer those horrors for the foreseeable future?

Re: Porn is Evil

I suppose that in the unlikely event that some waggish young blighter tells me proudly of their commitment to no nut November I should respond by asking if they are participating in castration for climate change ?

Re: Porn is Evil

I'm more inclined to think "no nut November" as a prank of the type that young whippersnappers enjoy engaging in when their adolescent hormone transformation to potentially/probably sexually active persons is in halcyonic initial glorious stages and an esoteric like, youth based, not for anyone over...

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

I think that Hellenic Riot made an interesting observation about Green candidates and rural electorates. In the Australian Federal Parliament the only lower house seat held by the Greens (Adam Bandt) is an inner city (Melbourne) seat. It's easier for minor parties to win seats in the Senate. What ha...

Re: Trump's Wall

Going on the shoddy wall effort, Trumptoad is looking like a clown who couldn't even get a certain service in a particular type of establishment (red light outside) even if he did have a fistful of $US 100 notes

Re: Abusing The Word "coward"

Thanks Orathaic. I understand that we live in an imperfect World and have to be pragmatic, but I do see some hypocrisy in the attitude of POTUS and others who castigate China for flouting the international "rules based systems", and China is a totalitarian state with all the horrors of such a diabol...

Re: Abusing The Word "coward"

I'm of the view that calling someone else an ignorant twat lacks either cleverness or humour. Octavious is certainly capable, imho, of delivering a much cleverer and more amusing riposte, so if anything, he's rather let himself down with that comment. (in my opinion)

Re: Abusing The Word "coward"

I don't believe that any of us will ever know the complete truth of what occurred when Baghdadi was killed. The Christian biblical passage that states that those who live by the sword shall die by the sword is imho appropriate for Baghdadi, in that he promoted violence, employed violence, often agai...

Re: Abusing The Word "coward"

I forget the exact statement, it might have been that the United States had bought Baghdadi to justice, not delivered justice to Baghdadi, but it was the use of the word justice that caught my attention. And I certainly care more about justice, legal process than I do about calling a person a coward...

Re: Abusing The Word "coward"

Returning to the topic of this thread, the possible misuse of the word coward by Trumptoad. I've seen a bit more if Trumptoad's forty odd minute announcement. One of his statements that I think employs a questionable use of a word is Trumptoad's statement that the United States had delivered "justic...

Re: Abuse leads to tragedy

It's regrettable that Vaporwave's parents didn't provide a greater influence in warning him of the dangers of drinking acidic fizzy drinks.

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Boris is definitely Brexit, Corbin is "Brexit maybe" and this hardy Scottish SNP clans are No Brexit & the Liberals are No Brexit. I have no idea what the Irish Nationals Brexit policy is, or how a win or loss in the rugby world cup for England will affect the first weeks of the election campaign

Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Hoorah !!? The citizens of the UK get a general election as an early Christmas present. Did Jeremy Corbin decide to go now before he gets replaced as Party leader ? Will Dipbro Jamiet99uk stand as a candidate ? (& not for the Monster Raving Looney Party but the Diplomacy First Party perhaps ?)

In my opinion the best statement you made flash2015 is where you express your dislike of rampant jingoism, make the credible point that ISIS are evil ( I say "enemies of the world"/ hostis humani generis is an apt description for ISIS ) and the most important point.. we don't need to lie about ISIS ...
