Re: No more babies

I think the threads elsewhere in the forum have unleashed him. You should remember that you are posting incoherent rambling old chap. The above makes no sense at all. I've got a stockpile of tinned beans though, for the apocalypse, and you've only got hope in normal times. ;) If May leaves us with ...

Re: Facebook

One thing about Facebook. Post a picture of a dog or a cat being cute and you get 50 likes - or a lot more if you have loads of FB friends (I don't). Post a serious item, for example, I posted an article about a zip wire being installed, despite much local resistance in the Lake District (a terribl...

Re: No more babies

I don't propose anything. I'm just making what I feel to be a valid observation. I stand to be corrected if you have any more info. But, of course, there's always Soylent Green ... :whistle: There's no inherent reason why there should be a strong correlation between the number of people and the amo...

Re: No more babies

Rosling also demonstrated that in societies where economies remain well regulated and stable, where democratic processes and institutions are robust, where there is universal access to education and health care and a functioning social safety net, then population growth tends towards a below than 1...

Re: Most Over Rated

Over the last few years I've got in to watching classic films I'd never seen before. I've just struggled through Gone With The Wind . Aside from the horrendous romanization of the confederacy, there's nothing in it but endless meandering dramas of irritating and unpleasant characters. How was it eve...

Re: Everything you didn't want to know about Trump and were not afraid to ask

How rich is Trump in reality? It is very difficult finding figures. He claims $10 bn. Forbes puts him at $3 bn. Some say he has not really have any actual wealth. From what I've read he's always had a lot less than he claimed he had , apparently primarily due to his own business failures since if h...

Re: Hard Brexit or Hard Brexit

Don't know if anyone's posted this but I found it interesting. This is basically what happens every time I meet with the local humanist group even if we planned to talk about other things, except these guys really know their stuff.

Re: Hard Brexit or Hard Brexit

I don't know if this is anything to do with Brexit, but I've just seen Spam advertised on the telly, making it out to be a really versatile amazing food. Are they trying to capture the market before heavily processed tinned pig is the only affordable meat product anyone has access to?

Re: Hard Brexit or Hard Brexit

Is there any politically and legally possible pathway to remain? The Tory government, supported in coalition by the DUP, the self-serving political wing of the old testament, will fight tooth-a-nail to stay in power. At the moment they have a real born-to-rule kind of political impetus which stamps...

Re: Letter Box

My issue is that they could carry a suicide vest packing several pounds of plastic explosive under a burka and you'd never know. Not saying they are all out to kill but if you had a bowl of mints and you knew one would kill you, would you want that bowl of mints? So I say ban it. Or under a woolly ...

Re: Ready Player One - Will it be good or shit?

Finally got around to watching this. I finished the book some months ago. They changed a lot around - certainly a lot of the specific cultural references I suspect for copyright reasons - and I didn't mind that because it still had plenty of nostalgia and game references. And even some major alterat...
