A place to scream at the world when you need to but can't do it at the jerk(s) who need it.

Some of us have been expecting this for some time. It has been quite demonstrably clear that the poster in question has by his demeanour and attitude, shown that he has been under some levels of stress for a while now. We can only hope that he seeks appropiate medical advice and treatment, so that he can return to the fold.

Don't know about that, but sometimes it's quite possible to pay a visit to said jerk & have words in their "shell-like" ears. Often paid dividends in the past :-)

If that fails, they can enjoy a good pint :-)

So the lot of you only want to choke each other and nobody IRL.

Was going to post something about ... but that might be too identifiable. Suffice it to say when they do the NUMBER ONE thing they can't do ... and its a doozy!

Microsoft releasing a new update. everything on your computer works before the update. After the update some software is broken, and so instead of walking up to your Microsoft representative and demanding an answer as to why they broke things and what they're going to do to fix that, you walk up to the software developers and demand they fix the stuff Microsoft broke!

If the application developers do "fix" the bug then they are doing M$'s work for them.....


(Because M$ never delivers a bug does it)

What's that smell? It kind of reminds me of burning plastic.

That's because some idiot put a trash bag full of paper leaning against the flue!

Oh I can. Some 15 year olds say more sense than some 50 year olds I know.

Some (UK English) speak so unclear that there's no difference between 18 and 80 either. And when you're doing an appeal for donations on the radio, that matters!

Well exactly. People do tend to judge the ability of other people by the spoken word. And in the case of charitable donations, if you have little confidence in the educational ability and judgement of the person, you doubt the veracity of the cause they say they support.

I sympathise with you Jord - The number of times I hear on the phone someone saying a word that sounds like "ai'ee'" when either "eighteen" or "eighty" would be appropriate - the terminal vowel sound is so important in many situations...

Yes, well, in this case it was about an appeal to get donations together for a 16 year old girl with a difficult to treat form of cancer, one that isn't treated in the UK, so they needed a million pounds for treatment in the US + aftercare. In the initial call for help the announcer said something like "she is 16 but if she doesn't receive care she won't reach ***" where for me the *** always sounded like 80, but they meant of course 18.

Especially in these cases I feel you need to articulate expertly, there should be no questions asked, no doubt about the message you try to convey. Yes, I did report it to the station (Radio Caroline). At least the appeal has gotten half of the needed cost together, so now the spot has changed to say that she is going for treatment in July, but that more money is still needed.

You are all on about age, no gallons in my case. That set in motion a chain of events though that ended with guns being pointed in my direction a couple hours later.

I started to wonder in what kind of criminal environments you do walkabout then, but then I remembered, you're an American and pointing guns at other Americans and using them on each other is a daily pass time. :)
