    The only lesson a kid will get from smacking is that smacking is ok. I don't get why some folks need to resort to it, there's much more effective ways of getting your kids to toe the line.
    I think thatís a bit black and white and thereís a danger of criticising peopleís parenting here which I think is wrong and not what this thread is for.

    I give my boy a smack on the bum when I feel he deserves it but Iím reluctant to justify it on here.

    Like Mrs S. I feel I could take my 4 year old pretty much anywhere and not worry about his behaviour, I feel the way my wife and I have disciplined him has contributed to that.

    Each to their own though.

    Sorry if it came across as condescending, it wasn't meant that way. I just personally see no need for smacking, not with kids anyway.

    Not sure if this is the correct thread but I think it ties in with the earlier posts about time running away as you get older.

    For about 5 years I met the same 3 guys most Saturday nights. We went for a few pints then went back to someones flat to watch MOTD then sometimes we headed out and other times we called it a night. We played 5 a sides together, a couple of us played 11s together, we were what would be termed best mates. Then it just stopped and I can't pinpoint why. There was no falling out and we have seen each other since but for some reason our friendship loosened.

    The obvious answer is that life happened. One guy got engaged and is now married with 2 kids and still lives in Aberdeen, I moved back to Edinburgh, live with my partner and have a baby, another lives in Warsaw and the final guys lives in London. I have seen members of the group as individuals over the last few years and we all still consider each other mates but it's just a strange thought that the chances of us all having a beer together as a group of 4 like the old days is pretty slim. I sometimes struggle to get how that happens.

    I really donít Ďgetí the increasing submission to and prioritisation of the modern-day agent of ignorance, the mobile phone.

    Fair play though, the perceived Ďneedí for these devices is arguably the finest confidence trick since organised religion!

    It's not really in any way related to your post, but I saw a thing on Facebook recently that I found quite poignant.

    One time, many years ago, you went out to play with your mates for the last time, but none of you realised it at the time.

    You just sort of drift, evolve, move on, and stop doing the things that you did, replacing them with something else.

    I struggle to understand betting odds.

    I'm ok with 2-1 etc but when it goes to 13-8 , 11-4 I'm struggling.
    I also know what the prices mean but can't fathom them at a glance as in what is a better price.
    Get them quoted in decimal format. You get 3, 2.625 and 3.75 for 2/1, 13/8 and 11/4. Easier than fractions.

    it does get annoying, its better than it used to be they have reduced the amount of breaks this season because of complaints (viewer numbers dropping). But the big games will still be the same. Watching games on demand cut out the breaks for you and its so much better. Also try Redzone on sky during the regular season its a bit like Soccer Saturday but they show the games instead of listening to Charlie Nicholas.

    I don't get why HMRC go after some poor sod working extra hours for minimum wage to make ends meet, yet allow businesses llike Rangers get away with £70m unpaid tax.

    Cheers, I used to love playing an American football game in the computer when I was a kid so I do like the concept of it, i just find the amount of stoppages makes it impossible to watch (for me)

    I was in NY when the super bowl was on last year, got back to the hotel room with a few beers (had been out walking since about 7 in the morning) and planned to just sit and chill watching it. There were less than 5 minutes to go until half time but from memory I donít think Iím exaggerating when I say almost 30 minutes later it still wasnít half time. Ended up falling asleep and missing it all.

    Social media, what does it do that texts and emails donít?

    Instagram being one, I see my wife constantly tapping her screen looking at endless photos of, what I assume are celebrities.

    The super bowl is its own thing, they make the most money from that so they advertise at every opportunity. The regular season isn't nearly as bad. Look up Red Zone as I suggested it might be a game changer for you.

    Hopefully it won't be followed into the dictionary by the word "useage".

    While I agree with the principle of what you're saying about large scale non-payment of tax, I'm pretty sure Hector chased some incarnation of Rangers through the courts for that money, and eventually won. Unfortunately, they were bust by that point and can't pay...(Although, my head's wasted with the Rangers and Hearts financial comings and goings, and it's entirely possible I just made that up )

    Big game hunting.

    The appeal of killing an animal for a trophy is beyond me. I know the apologists give all sorts of reasons why hunting is actually 'good for the economy', 'funds conservation' and 'takes place within controlled areas' but I still don't get it. If anything shooting an animal kept withing a confined and controlled environment makes it even less of an 'achievement' in my eyes.
