Yes there's some irony here alright I notice he's a winner and British would he have been Scots and a loser if he hadn't won?

I'd be impressed if he'd won the Frisbee Golf World Championships.
Wasn't golf invented over there somewhere on that island? By Brits, or Scots or Irelanders or ...no wait, it was the Germans, right?
Scots (but you knew that) and its plural by the way. Though the English did invent football (sorry soccer) and rounders the girls game (sorry baseball). :)
Topic what is your favorite movie quote
09 Jul 2013 12:27
Eli Wallach as the bandit leader Alvera in The Magnificent Seven whilst discussing feeding his men for the winter with Yul Bryner who is Chris of the seven gunfighters ''Somehow I don't think you are solving my problem.''
Yul Brner, ''Solving your problems isn't our line.''
Same (ground breaking) movie
Yul Bryner ''Why did they hide the women.''
Horst Bucholz ''They thought we would rape them.''
Yul Brner ''Well we might, but they could have give us the benefit of the doubt.''
I must be getting old but I haven't seen dialogue of this quality for years. The most recent one was The Big Lebowski.
Topic What do you want from having sex?
08 Jul 2013 00:55
I don't find this an easy question to answer. Fun seems a rather mild word to use regarding sex throwing a frisbee around is maybe fun. But sex oh it's a whole world of intensity desires feelings all rolled into one. When you think about it in a cold practical way it can appear a little ridiculous definitely not dignified to do or look at. An urgent feeling that seems to be circulating in the blood in a way it's sort of drug like. I suppose its the feeling - and prolonging that in your partner and yourself for as long as possible and then the emotional release and pleasure that someone can give you heightens how you feel about them that is their making you feel so good is part of how you feel about them.

Must be a cultural thing but initially I read this to mean that there was a lot of secret methods about this subject that may be escaping me like maybe there is a reverse cowboy position that would be cool to try or something. But it's only the good old kiss and tell thingy.

Topic Voting Rights Act
06 Jul 2013 10:29
Am I being naive here again but voting is carried out in the UK by something called the Electoral Role? We each receive notification through the post as as to where and when to vote each person gets only 1 letter and once at the polling station their name is already there to be noted and ticked off once they quote their name (they don't even need the letter with them) so it would be impossible to vote more than once unless they had several names and addresses. Also politicians (the seedy little devils) aren't allowed near the ballot boxes except as a voter. Surely if the fumbling British can come up with a fairly foolproof system then the richest and most free nation in the world can too? Or am I just misunderstanding the US procedure?

Blue briefs with yellow stripes from Marks and Spencers I think.
Topic To shave or not to shave, that is the question!
06 Jul 2013 02:36
I am again baffled by the fixation with this issue there are currently 2 threads about it and I bet the guys who are stating their preference have no problem grazing women's thighs with their semi-shaved faces which to me is somewhat contradictory or do women like sandpaper faces scraping away at their nether regions?
Topic breasts and nipples
06 Jul 2013 02:16
This cracked me up haha..
Having them played with, licked etc, is a massive turn on to me, but i've found its something past lovers have not given enough attention to. Preferring to concentrate on the more obvious area haha
You have a good point here; a girl once fully clothed straddled my lap facing me and I caressed her nipples and breasts until she actually had an orgasm. Gave me a lot of food for thought (no I'm not referring to the milking bit - though James Joyce did make a rather nauseating reference to that in Ulysses).
Topic What is the most current overrated and underrated shows?
06 Jul 2013 01:12
Haven't had a tv since about 1998 and life is so less stressful now it's even improved my grammar. I wander around uninformed about things that don't immediately effect me, (and most world events to be realistic are beyond my control) never sit swearing at the box, or being bored to death by cooking programmes or house buying ones (Jesus get a life!), and as for the vogue on talent or 'reality' shows I don't suffer that horrible feeling of a great weight pressing down on my chest and giving me an urge to slide off my chair and lie on the floor. I used to watch beloved shows like Only Fools And Horses or Steptoe and Son but sadly they are only repeats now. I watched a show whilst visiting the kids on their tv and it was supposed to be a sort of mock game show where 2 brain dead and talentless twins were covered in fake tan and then they hosed it off which the audience and the presenters all thought extremely funny. Now I like a joke along with the next man but this was hardly P.G. Wodehouse material, (Jeeves and Wooster). No this was one of my better descions no doubt there will be amongst you those who will think I'm putting myself at risk with this ignorance is bliss approach but I'm sure someone will send me an email about anything urgent like the North Koreans are going to invade Europe with a view to subjugating us all.
Topic Voting Rights Act

You hit it on the head. In the U.S. the haves are those with the money, the power and a survival of the fittest ideology - Republican's - conservatives -right wing. They legislate control i.e. all the attempts, successful or not, to regulate the woman's body, keeping the woman subservient by paying her less just because she doesn't have a dick. The irony of it all is they use God and the Bible as the basis of their suppression when the oath they take is an oath to the Constitution WHICH SEPARATES CHURCH AND STATE.
The powers that be with the have-not's have money and power as well but are a bit more realistic in understanding that while the rich and powerful take the wealth the poor still need to survive in a civil society. So, the liberals, or progressive as they are called today, have come up with social programs like welfare. The right complains about giving welfare to poor while they give their powerful corporations ungodly tax breaks and block attempts to cut off this corporate handout. The left gave the unemployed a program to compensate for hard times. The right fought against it. The left gave veterans benefits to better themselves with college education. The right fought tooth and nail against it calling it 'welfare'. I could go on and on and on.
While the left ain't perfect...I'll side with those who stand with the less powerful. The only way to win against a survival of the fittest mentality is to do by the masses.
Yes I can see how they keep the power and that's disgusting about women (I want the next President to be a Mexican descended, lesbian, handicapped aetheist, which sounds like real equality to me) as for the religious issue. Well once the British established that god is British (we have songs about this and the Queen is head of the Church and State) it became an establishment means of control but apart from lavender scented little old lades who formed sewing clubs or made naked pinup calenders we all stopped going to church regularly and made bingo halls out of them so they sort of lost that angle - must have really upset Henry VIII. They did only educate the masses so that they could operate the more sophisticated services that were coming in in the late 1800's but that was a double edged sword most of us can now read and apart from those who peruse The Sun are fairly well informed and have developed a sort of romantic cynic outlook. Therefore the in-house machinations of politicians are ignored we only get annoyed when they rattle sabres or have some crazy scheme going on like leaving Europe or ban fox hunting (Oscar Wilde expressed that issue very well).

US politics seem a total mystery to me and sometimes somewhat contradictory as I get the impression the idea is freedom yet phrases like liberal, communist, socialist are bandied about as though they are some sort of disease and not just a point of view (one of my US friends tells me even the idea of a pension is considered very left wing). In the UK it's simple. There are the haves and the have nots and the haves keep trying to stop the have nots having any and the the have nots keep trying to get more and keep what they've got. Therefore we end up with an uneasy compromise between the two polarities. I'm with Samuel Johnson on this one only I would extend it to mean all of them.
