I debated the merits of even starting this thread.
There's no point in another .net debate about gun control. It's well tread ground. Thoughts and prayers are absolutely pointless.
Yet 17 school kids are dead in the USA and all I feel is apathy to a situation that is the norm, and won't ever...
BBC are running a story >>LINK<< regarding a recent movie release, "Peter Rabbit" and a scene whereby the CGI animals round on the human character and fire blackberries at him even though he is allergic and requires his epi-pen at some point.
This scene seems to have upset some folk and I can't...
I’ve just finished reading the Ashlee Vance book about Elon Musk.
I’ve read a lot of biographies over the years and found this one utterly fascinating.
When a mans goals are to ‘change cars, save the environment & make humans interplanetary’ you know you’re dealing with someone a bit different &...
Commoditised andcommercialised New Year celebrations, born and bred Edinburgher`s being priced out of the city by the swarm of southerners purchasing all property, touristsbeing put first, traditional working class boozers turned into generic coffeeshops and mundane middle -class "bars",...
Happy Pancake Day all.
I've traditionally been a lemon and cinnamon guy, but it turns out I can't tolerate cinnamon any more. I'm making pancakes with the wee man today, so looking for filling suggestions.
We're doing the usual Nutella, jam and sugar ones - any other decent fillings?
Hark back to the scenes in Trainspotting when Renton has sex with Diane only to find out in the morning that she's only 14.
He's mortified. She's blasé, but under our laws, he'd likely be jailed.
It's a scene which provokes much debate, external or otherwise.
If you're in a venue with a...
I realise that this isn't an exact science, but it's interesting and fun to do.
The answers I gave make me 50% Left, 36.1% Liberal.
Anyone do it?
Any thoughts are welcome. :aok:
I've not seen much of the news in the last 2 days, has anything been made of their controversial views and the fact that they now have a significant influence on U.K. politics.
The idiots are well and truly at the wheel. If you’ve left a country you shouldn’t get a say in how it’s run, any more than you should still get to vote in council elections for an...
Scientists capture exploding beetles' amazing escapes from toads' stomachs!
This surely should be appealed.
A man who pulled in to a bus stop on Christmas Day to help a homeless man was fined by a council.
Lee Williamson, of Evington, Leicester, said he stopped to give a homeless man a blanket, hat, gloves, scarf, food, and chat to him.
He later received a £70...
If you ever have a delayed flight and get offered travel vouchers or cash TAKE THE CASH even though the vouchers look the better deal. I took vouchers and there's strings attached. I wish I had taken the money.
SNP hypocrisy and lying? Or legitimate use of taxpayer money and our special relationship with the USA?
Personally i dont have a problem with the USAF using the airport, they are...
Space X hit another milestone by landing 2 out of 3 of the boosters used in the Falcon Heavy Lifter
Go to 8:30 mins if you just want to see the boosters land
Its an amazing accomplishment and looks like something from the thunderbirds.
They've come a long way in such a short space of...
It's a remarkable story, but I don't remember anything about this place.
I wonder why all those cars were never claimed ...
I've read a few articles over the last year or so which have a go at what they call "snowflakes" for being concerned when others use offensive language etc. I've read similar sentiments on hibs.net from time to time.
Personally, I don't understand why people would want to offend others in the...
70,000 petition forces a meeting with the crown office over the lenient sentence, i do hope his family win a right to appeal :agree:
The prosecutors’ offer of a meeting followed mounting pressure...
Anybody else starting to find their weird obsession with her cringeworthy? Its embarrassing she seems to be a story every other week for absolutely **** all.
They seem to simply scroll her twitter feed and write stories about it. Lazy journalism at its best but I guess you'd expect nothing less...
RIP Mark. Legend. Edinburgh man.
Loads of kerfuffle in the news (Daily Express, etc.) about "Sturgeon Snubs Queen" and the like.
Seems like it's yesterday's news regurgitated and put out as new for political point scoring.
If so, it's quite pathetic really.
This from the Belfast Telegraph ...
Today I learned that Tynecastle was once an exporter of cheap, plentiful, horse manure to Edinburgh, Lothian and as far afield as Glasgow. How times have changed, eh?
Maybe we misheard Levine the other day and he was actually talking about restoring the natural ordure of Tynecastle...
Seems there is a big difference in what a progressive tax plan looks like between the parties.
Interesting debate to take place
It seems Neil, the tribune of the left(Jimmy Johnstone was more left wing than him), has been trumpeting the Daily express again.
Labour spin and lies found out again.
This thread is aimed primarily at Mrs. S who I saw on another thread has RA - but any other help or advice gratefully received.
Mrs ODS has just been diagnosed with RA. I'd be really grateful if anyone with experience or knowledge of the condition would post anything that might be helpful. Mrs....
King Fluffy :not worth
Indycab man Gordon Ross apparently hearing things about Mundell preparing for a post Brexit 'coup'. Fluff's increasing his staff by zillions and moving to a big office down Leith supposedly. Nothing in the mainstream news about it so it can't be true. Best ignore. ...
I thought it would be nice to have a thread about the positive things that happen in the world for a change.
Post your heartwarming stories in here.
First up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24170670 :thumbsup:
"Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie, O, what a panic's in thy breastie!" would seem appropriate on the night. :wink:
It will be followed by a screening of Braveheart, no doubt. :cool2:
I've seen stalls selling various insects in Thailand, and although I'm usually an adventurous eater, I haven't yet built up enough courage to sample any. I'ma bit disappointed in myself for that, tbh.
I'm sure there are many intrepid dotnet...
I'm not on the Holy Ground often but as I sit here bored waiting for no.3 child to come out the cinema, I am wondering who on here votes Tory? There must be some of you? It can't only be Brian Monteith 😉. Reasons why appreciated also.
Personally I vote SNP at Scottish and UK elections at present...
I hope they throw the book at this guy. Attempted murder although probably some smart-assed lawyer will get him off with self-defence and the woman charged with obstruction.
So what's the script here then?
How/Does the vote in the USA affect us in the UK?
A giant of music is no more.
The Prime Minister has announced that she is pregnant. The baby will arrive in June, after which she planned to take a six-week break. She is now set to be the second elected world leader to give birth while in office - and the first to do so in almost 30 years.
BBC TV says: In Edinburgh only the most determined ventured out in their cars.
watching live the now, looks horrendous
Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan dies suddenly aged 46 - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-42696376
Much stronger than men. Unfortunately. Damn their lovely eyes.
Pleaded guilty today for driving his car after his license was taken off him.
What an absolute ****er of a man.
