Re: A quite place - best movie so far this year, or just a great name for a gunboat?

@Wusti.. yes Blade runner is a most popular film, but what about "Flesh and Blood ? Incidentally, I should get a "universal" DVD player. Some of the imported DVDs I get ( in Australia ) are for other "regions", so I have to take them to my "computer/internet thingy" expert and get him to make "back ...

Bloody asinine self correcting script software changes Oldman to Old man. Why TF does it do this sh*t ? Who TF designs this software ? Patronising pricks who arrogantly assume they know​ more about how we wish to express ourselves than we do.

Re: Seeking Migrants.. Australia welcomes you

That's what the Barmy Army more or less do each four years when they visit for an Ashes Test Cricket series. On a more serious note, most migrants from the United Kingdom manage the move here quite well. So if you're a health services professional, engineer, scientist, Police Force member as well as...

Seeking Migrants.. Australia welcomes you

Re: Casual webdip poll Left/right authoritarian/libertarian

So I asked Her Imperiousness, the Fire Breathing MemSahib where on the political spectrum she would place me & her response was "In the dunces' corner." Then she lovingly berated me for wasting her time and commanded me to go forth and prune the roses. What a wonderful woman.

Re: New Topic: Incels

Oh I got my comments wrong way around in the latter paragraph about accepting invitations for sex, the Daffy old fuddy duddy me thinks women more discriminating in accepting offers or requests for sex from men. I have no idea if women respond differently to offers from women.

More or less the same feelings as when the corrupt dictatorship that rules their own country bombs them as in the Syrian example, do those children feel differently if the bombing is done by the Syrian regime, Russia, the USA & it's allies ?
