  1. Fortunately Candace Owens is an irrelevant side show. Not too dissimilar to yourself, many would argue.
  2. No need for any apologies MrZigster. If I'm honest, I can't actual;ly see where I could take umbrage. I guess what I'm shouting out (to all) is that if higher management decide to be complete w*nkers with you, while it is they themselves that are the monumental scheming bell ends, then fight with every tooth and nail that is within your artillery. Not only that, but learn their weaknesses - know where they have to comply with their own P & P's, read up on the relevant laws, always take notes dates, and any details of data as you go along, so that you have a contemporaneous record. It actually goes further than that - well, with me anyway. It was once demanded of me (and everybody within my department) that I attend a meeting with two members of much higher management about a 'group re-structure' of the department that I worked in. Little beknown to them I attended that meeting with a covert spy camera that not only recorded visually, but also that of sound too. After the meeting had ended they told me that they would send notes of the meeting taken by them for me to see. They must have noted that I took no notes during the meeting. Anyway, when I was sent their notes of the meeting, it wasn't exactly a surprise to read that they varied directly from the words spoken by myself and the two representatives within that meeting. I then responded to them pointing out that they had corporately lied within the minites of their meeting. I then, rather like a surgeon would, carefully dissected and destroyed the argument that they had been trying to put over. So, all I'm trying to say really is, if it is their intention to stick the boot in to you, then you should immediately drop all respect for them, and stick the boot in to them - only stick it in harder and stick it in right where it hurts the most. Fuck 'em.
  3. There was a year when I all of a sudden had to have half of my colon removed. As it happened I had already booked my days off as annual leave for Glastonbury, during that period of official off work convalescence post operation. I argued and won that those days I had booked off as leave should no longer be considered as leave, but be allocated against the doctors written notice, time wise, of when not to go back to work. I get what you are saying ie. that you wouldn't dream of thinking or reacting that way to an employer. In that we differ. The thing is the people heading the organisation that I worked for were milking the system to an even greater extent than I, yet they deigned to pull the ladder up after them as they rose up the ranks. It is my viewpoint that should you ever cross swords with these people, then annihilate with the extreme and utter prejudice that they would have done to you., had you given them the opportunity.
  4. Hello Mr. Zigster, I guess that you are not a member of a union? As an aside from that, does the company you work for have set Policies & Procedures documents which cover all their activities. I'm thinking this may not be the case either. In which case, I would seriously suggest that you contact some organisation like the Citizens Advice. If your employer does have the written codes within their P & P documents, then I would urge you to study them, possibly like you've never scrutinised anything ever before. If you can't get clarity on any aspects then ask any relatives or mates you think may be able to shine light on that area or areas. Don't stop there, ask here too as well. You need to understand those P & P's like the back of your hand. Once you do, you may find that you are able to hoist them from their own petard. That was certainly the case when I used a companies P & P's against them - twice! They were fucking furious, but could do nothing. I wish you well in sorting this one out, and in your quest to have some tranquillity in your life.
  5. Oh, and yes, yes it was a nice smoke.
  6. I can't actually put in to words how I feel right now. As an aside, I've just listened to these two tracks, which I may or may not have heard before. If I have, then they didn't register with me. They both have registered with me now. I would appear to be being bathed in beautiful music right now.
  7. Hello vintagelaureate, Thanks also for the belated birthday best wishes. We're kind of OK at this end, thanks. We're somehow limping along despite covid-19 decimating our Airbnb business. I hope that all's well with you and yours.
  8. Thanks for the belated birthday best wishes crazyfool1. Well, if you tell us your birthday date now, then we can all bombard you with best wishes on the day. That should raise your spirits.
  9. Hello bluarsky, Thanks for the birthday best wishes. I'm afraid that it wasn't me that posted the pics of garden decking.
  10. I feel 'alive', and that's not to be sneezed at.
  11. It was my birthday yesterday. I am still celebrating, but at less of a pace than a few hours ago. I may well be a year older, but I am still non the wiser. I'm sure that could be perceived as a negative, but it's not really in my eyes. I feel quite comfortable with what I already know. In any case, this (below) kind of applies to me now;
  12. I've had that treatment before a number of times on ebay. I got so incensed at one 'purchase' from an ebayer who failed to pay, that I actually decided to take it down the complaints route within ebay. Well, that was a waste of time because they did exactly nothing. As in nothing at all. Why people do it remains a mystery to me.
  13. Thanks for posting. Can't look at those now, but will do so in the near future. Well, I say that - what I mean is, I'll look at the cannabis farm one, and if it tickles my fancy I'll watch another, and so on.
  14. Hello bamber, I'm afraid that I don't know an enormous amount about the internet really. I can use this site, a few news sites, and also (back in the day) book a Ryanair flight. Obviously I'm exaggerating / being slightly self deprecatory there a little. That said, I don't really know if the internet is evil or not. Surely it can and is both evil and possibly our saviour. I guess it's down to how people want to use it and interpret it's response to them. I just tried to be 20 ft tall, but accidentally shot the mark. This happened instead; With concentration My size increased And now I'm fourteen stories high (At least) Empire State human Just a bored kid. I'll go to Egypt to be The pyramids I love my friends too, and know that they love me in return. I guess that's a start.
  15. We are all a product of our own environment, to a degree. We are also, in my opinion, also guilty of helping to maintain the world that we live in, knowing full well that it's unfit for purpose. It is in no way equitable, yet we have nearly all acquiesced for some reason or other - be it for cash, power, complacent stupidity etc etc. However, there are those who have not accepted this status quo, and never will. I can't help but feel that it is now time to go and swell their numbers.
  16. STOP PRESS. STOP PRESS. The penny has dropped - or at least I think it has. If I'm right then I can confirm that I would agree with your original post that I had my doubts on. Yes it is disappointing that there were white people using the protest to loot etc. I'm sure that black people are as equally ashamed of the black people who looted. The thing is, the people who looted have a completely different agenda to that of achieving equality and the harmony that most of us are all yearning for. That should be recognised by that majority, and treated as the side show it is. If I may, I'd like to tell you a true story. Those who need to scroll on, please do so now. Right, for those who have held on, I'll press on. My dad used to be a Foreman at the Longbridge car factory in Birmingham. One day a black bloke came in to his night shift completely inebriated while my dad was foreman. My dad immediately said that he should be put in to the bed in the sick bay, covered up and left to sleep the night there. In the meantime everybody would do that little bit extra that night to cover the man's work, so that he wouldn't get caught out, would still get paid his wages for that night. And that's how it transpired. The man got up in the morning, went home (possibly got pissed up all over again) etc, and nothing was ever said about it. The came a moment in time when the IRA blew up the Mulberry Bush and the Tavern in the Town in Birmingham. Now, this affected the Irish community greatly. My folks were now regarded as being directly associated with the bombers. I could tell you numerous tales of the violent threats and blinkered prejudice, but will spare you. Anyway, not long after that scandalous night, when the psychopaths came out to play, that my dad had to go in to the car factory to start his block of night shifts for the week. Just going to cut the story as much as I can now so as not to ramble. What happened then is; My dad starts work. Not long after a rabble of men descend on my dad's line (long manufacturing machine, not far off a mile long, in this instance). They had just broken the arms and legs of an Irishman a few lines up from my dad, and were now on the hunt for my dad. Then they shouted there he is and they headed towards him as a mob. Then, a black bloke who never spoke to hardly ever spoke (according to my dad) stood in the path between the mob and my dad, and said 'If you want Vince, then you are going to have to come through me first'. Now it also transpires that this black bloke was built like a shit house, and had a heavy duty spanner in each of his hands. Guess what? The mob fucked off. My dad reckons it was pay back for his help with the drunken black bloke who came on duty on his shift, as previously detailed. There's no place for racism or any other prejudice. I don't know an awful lot academically, but I do know that that is the desired goal of the majority. I know this, because I conducted a straw pole of one, who, for convenience, happened to be me.
  17. As tarw has indicated above, you seem to be reinventing the wheel ie. it would appear that what you are trying to create is on this very site.
  18. I suspect that you are right there, as I do appear to be missing something. Care to clarify your point further?
  19. Am I going back in time? It's possible, just possible that I may have won the ' Lost their marbles' Award for June already. I certainly hope so, as it would be an honour, and I mean that, to wear that sash across my body, while sporting a ladies tight fitting swim suit. Well, it'll be tight fitting on me in any case. I might insert some triangular jean wedges within the costume, to make it more pleasing on the eye - as well as to ease the pain a little.
  20. Yes I know that there were examples of white people looting, as you had previously indicated this. However, are you saying that there were no black people who also looted?
  21. I must admit to two things here; (1) That I haven't scrutinised this situation / watched loads of footage of the protests. (2) That despite that, I feel uncomfortable about being able to nod my agreement with you, in any case ie. without having studied this in detail. I say that because your claim is, to me, far too broad sweeping, and actually erring on being racist in itself. What are you basing your view on ie. what stats etc are you using? Surely this kind of data is not available at this moment in time? In addition to the above I once met a bloke who was to all intents a rabid anarchist on a whole variety of causes. I don't think that I'd be too wrong if I said that he was just up for a rook, no matter what the cause - however, I recognise that that is just my opinion of him having talked to him. He indicated to me that many many different protest movements were very carefully organised. He said that at the protests he went to (across the globe) that there would be three distinct groups of protesters. these would be; (1) The peaceful protesters, who would be given a certain geographical position within the protest march etc. (2) The people who did not intend to commit violence, but if it kicked off and they thought that they could get away with it, they'd steam in. (3) The people who's whole intention at that meeting, march etc was to definitely kick off. Now, if we take your view in to account within this framework, you would be saying that both groups 2 and 3 would only be made up of white people. In my opinion, to say that is not exactly tenable. Even if a protest wasn't as organised as this person told me, can it really be claimed that those causing unnecessary destruction, looting etc in this case are limited to white people? I doubt that very much.
  22. I've just found it framed in my garage. Have PM'ed you back.
  23. Hello plaskins, I may (or may not) be able to help you out here. I bought one of the original posters, way back when they were available. I had it up in a frame on the wall in my last house. However, I really wouldn't want it up in the wall in this house, as despite my 'belief' in the man, it really would be incongruous in this setting. Therefore, it is actually surplus to my requirements, as I hope / intend to never leave this house until my time on this planet stops, if I can somehow achieve that desired plan. So, to cut a long story short, you can have my copy and I'll send it to you in the post. However, there is a caveat in that I don't currently know where it is, and also in what condition it is in. If you put a gun against my head, I'd say that it's properly wrapped up in good condition in a cardboard tube in my garage. I'll have a look in the garage tomorrow to verify this. If not, I will look elsewhere, as I know that it is around here somewhere. In connection with the above I will message you tomorrow sometime. Also note that I wouldn't want anything for it, and am just happy that it'll go to an appreciative person / home.
