who? does what? how can I get that sweet job?
I'll take or the abuse, scrutiny and criticism you can all throw at me to work 15 minutes a year
Yeah that's another thing, because members of the Royal family are born into it they are 'trained' from an early age how to deal with being in the spotlight, but the ones that marry into it can't handle it. It gets me though, and this is the same for some celebrities as well, they know they are gonna get hounded all the time by the press before getting involved but then whinge about it afterwards. If they want the bloody fame and money then shut up and put up with it!

I find it good to see the forum having some lively discussion again
Yes, next time we will be discussing 'Western decadence' reflecting capitalism's gradually decreasing capacity to provide for social needs and preparing the ground for socialist revolution.

It should be a good one folks! :geek:

Well my dear old dad always said, it's better to be pissed off than pissed on!:oops:
So true! I remember once in around '73, I was sitting Seiza deep in meditation when I had an unusual sensation from my left and was suddenly enlightened...to the understanding that a dog had just raised his right leg and pissed on me.
Perhaps he was angry... I don't know. Maybe he thought I was a stump.

I think some animals do things like this as some sort of revenge, the same reason for getting s**t on by a bird, a flying one that is, not a woman. (or maybe both) :rolleyes:

Expect you're looking to be banned? Wardroom rules apply. No joke... :cool:

Beware of buzzards overhead! They have a gigantic load.
Not as bad a situation in a car, but just think... a motorcycle!
When they fly over... I practice my counter-steering.

I had this job where we were capturing deer fawns, and we'd creep real slow though fields looking for them. And every once in a while you'd creep up on a wild turkey, and it would scare the bejeezus out of you when it burst up right before you stepped on it. But more relevantly to this thread, it always shat when it took off. Big pile of stinky shat every time, right there in front of you. Nasty.

I also had a pigeon dive bomb me at Washing Square in NYC once. Hit me square in the ear, I had pigeon poop in my ear canal half way down to my brain. It was a good shot, gotta hand it to that pigeon.

Those are my only bird **** stories.



You brits need to stop pissing on each other, it's gross.

I swear to god that they do it to get their own back, I've had it a couple of times not right in my ear though.

Oh man, that's one thing I just can't get with I'm afraid. I'm much more on the side of evolution but with a slight twist. I'm pretty damn sure part of me is primate but I also think the other part is not from around these parts if you get my drift:alien:
not Adam and Eve literally, but metaphorically. with DNA testing it has been found everyone now living no matter where in the world, descend from a woman and a man about 135,000 years ago and is known as the Adam and Eve gene. they probably did not know each other and lived far apart in distance and time but they are our common ancestor Mitochondrial Eve - Wikipedia
