Little Billy coming home proudly with his B grade in Metal work and the kung fu star he made was usually greeted with, "is that the best you could do you little bastard?" This was often followed by a clout around the ear hole and a warning to wait until his father gets home.
British Billy would have grown up probably suffering a bit from low self esteem. He'd get a steady job in the metal factory, live a contented life and be the life and soul down his local boozer on a Saturday night.
Meanwhile, the American 'good job buddy,' will grow up to be a narcissistic little prick, who will stay at school until he is 29 and a half and be totally void of any social skills because it's been ingrained in him that he's always been an A student and he, like his country is NUMBER ONE.

There's musuems and cultural centres, you can walk some trails. You can walk down to the Colorado river. Helicopter rides, all sorts.

You may only visit once, like the Hoover Dam. Why rob yourself of the fullness of the experience. Unless, your priority is to get back to Vegas, the casinos he all you can eat buffert. Vegas was the worse place I have ever visited in The USA.

Don't get me wrong it was spectacular, and we got there as the sun was setting and stayed overnight seeing the sun rise, but there is only so many photos you can take to bore people with, and it was somewhat hard to sit there in your yoga pose contemplating the meaning of life when you are 3 guys.

And incidentally I did drive the car back to Vegas (after spending a night there on the way), leaving it there for the next person in the complex plan to take to the South side to pick up the 2 guys, while I hopped on a plane back to Burbank. The drive itself was pretty impressive going through some of the Utah national parks.

The damage is just not to the Forset its the habitat for so much wonderful wildlife. From the deer to the smallest insects. When its under control the locals will be out rescuing the animals.

Some wanker threw their faulty smoke alarm in the bins last week whilst still beeeping like mad. Hot weather, open windows, lots of angry people. Some poor bugger eventually snapped and went rifling through it all to find it.

I thought that was one of the better ads I’d go mad if I could do that! But most of the ads now days are crap, especially the new ford car ad , I can’t hit the mute button fast enough, I mute most of them now, I must be getting old , bring back the days of the carling and hamlet style ads some thing to have a laugh at. Oh and the whitbread bitter ad Ivan skavinsky skavar now that’s an advert

Windows updating your computer whether you want it to or not.

You can postpone updates for up to 35 days or just set the update time to something like 0200 to 0300. I don't think you can put them off forever.

A few weeks ago I switched on a Windoze box and it decided it wanted to update itself. It finished booting up 65 (sixty-five) minutes later. I did not make that up.

I feel for them but they knew they were taking a risk when they set off. I am sure there will be a legit example where some had to go but few and far between. So moaning about it now gets no sympathy. Itís unlucky that things have tipped over but thatís about it.

The bbc news reporter saying itís hard on the travel companies that the Govt did this is a plonker. if they hadnít acted so quickly they would have been reporting Govt helps fat cat buddies in the travel industry at cost of lives. They really do need to apply some brains and stop sensationalising everything.

They don't want you storing stuff locally, they want you to keep it in the so-called "cloud" and they want to charge you to use software running in the so-called "cloud" and access media content from there too. It all helps move software and content to a subscription-charging model instead of a pay-once license. This helps content and software providers as well as the cloud companies with their chief objective, which is to stick a hoover into your bank account and suck and suck and suck until all they get is fluff.

Micro$hite is doing the same kind of thing.

But it’s not really quarantine is it. If you go to Australia it’s a fortnight at your own expense in a room in a hotel you don’t get to choose.

I loved the news report last night which stated the government policy, that if you have been to a non-sanctioned country , like Germany , and you drive through France and you don’t get out of your car, then no quarantine.

I imagine that a lot of the people who dashed abroad also thought that lockdown was for other people.

There was a Karen on the box last night blaming the government. HMG have been appalling during the crisis, but it unfair to blame them for some people’s stupidity and selfishness.

Dear Pidster

A relative in Australia with whom I have been in communication mentioned that when one arrives at the airport, one is escorted on to a coach and transported straight to a hotel to spend 2 weeks in a room and the cost is approx 2,000 Australian dollars per person.

.

But that's the case, if you're London middle class, and have a second (or third) home in the Sussex countryside, Cornwall, Dorset or the South of France. It's been the case since the start of this, particularly during the most severe weeks of lockdown. My neighbours have been shuttling back and forth from their country piles since March. Our street has been empty of vehicles - apart from those of the East European builders doing renovations on the London abodes of the absent bankers and lawyers. Lockdown has always been about different rules for different folk.

I would agree if those people have gone to France in the last week or so, but people who have been there for a couple of weeks, I think it’s harsh to over criticise. There’s not a massive amount of difference to someone who lives in the south going to France than someone in the north going to Scotland

We have some friends that have made some dodgy decisions. Flew to Spain for a week as soon as it was possible and have spent much of lock-down in 'a lock-down' at their local pub. Have been babysitting their Grandchildren throughout too. Obviously they think they are superhuman and can't catch it and weren't ever worried about risks for the kids either. They would no doubt say they were right, they haven't caught it but.....

Every one sees things differently and it hasn't been a shock as they aren't much for rules in their whole lives tbh. Tax is something others pay etc. they do cash. Pretty sure they think we are mugs and maybe they are right - all about perspective.

The gradual creeping of American verb definitions into the Queen's (*at your service, ma'am) standard English.

Example, it was said on another forum that suffers from my presence, that a man was 'enjoying' a particular credit card. This would have been find had said bell been a Septic, but he was as English as Tikka Masala. One wonders just how euphoric coupling must be if someone's pleasure has already been set to 'enjoy' by a simple financial instrument.

They would no doubt say they were right, they haven't caught it but.....

Every one sees things differently and it hasn't been a shock as they aren't much for rules in their whole lives tbh. Tax is something others pay etc. they do cash. Pretty sure they think we are mugs and maybe they are right - all about perspective.

I live in Melbourne, Australia so won’t be going anywhere for at least another 4 weeks. But, yes, I don’t get invited on family holidays any more because I have made known my feelings about my sister’s selfishness and how she exploits my parents’ love of her and their grandchildren.

It's crept in over the past 2-3 years and they need to bring back the chair in states that had abandoned it to deal with said people.

What's "throwing down"? Is it anything like throwing up?

This makes as much sense as an adrenalin john post.

I saw someone blow their nose directly into the street yesterday.
Not only disgusting and unhygienic but it took a lot for me not to kill him.

Roundabout “manners” in Ibiza. Minimal indicating and presence in either lane (most roundabouts have two lanes) gives no clue as to which exit is to be taken.

Also, being thanked for “giving way”, stopping at a zebra etc just doesn’t seem to be the norm.

Adlerhorst 18-08-2020 12:13 PM

Why should you thank someone for stopping at a zebra crossing?

I do because society says I must, but it is idiotic.

People not keeping track of a conversation they're part of.

Actors speaking in a low voice probabaly thinking it is good acting. It isn't, it's lazy and really annoying.

The background of television series being so dark. Why?

I do it. Makes me feel good and is a self virtuous circle.
You say thanks, driver appreciates it and doesn’t mind stopping, therefore at the next one i feel safe to cross and the drivers take notice.
Seems like an easy thing to do in life.

Seems to be another f~cking Yankism derived from the pursuit of power through money. Once you have acquired a suitable number of Benjamin Franklins, you no longer conduct transactions as per the Queensbury Rules; you throw down your cash with disdain in order to show the receiver that this is not an equitable exchange. Rather that the seller should in fact be grateful they are only selling a mobile phone, and not being penetrated anally, which the powerbroker has proven he could do in any given situation, based on nothing more than his bank balance and his thick-headed American upbringing.

tl;dr Americans are c~nts
