Re: Imperial or metric?

government should only legislate things we NEED legislated. pre-packaged stuff should be labelled in metric units and then the people will decide. it;s not the governments place in a free society to define every single little aspect of our lives. unfortunately the eu is not properly democratically a...

Re: Well should they?

Don't they already have Mace/Pepper sprays? Which as far as I know have not caused any deaths, but are just as debilitating. actually, i have heard of a case in the US where a pieceful protest was broken up using pepper spray. one woman went into anaphilatic (speeling?) shock and died. there are no...

Re: Well should they?

the justification for not allowing the public to use firearms (I'm including tasers in that group), is that they are not appropriate and justified as a means of defence. If the police are routinely armed, then they would have no argument to stop the public owning them. The most dangerous thing to de...

unfortunately, he was of the age where he would already have had kids. his passing only helps the species if he fails to pass on his genes.

Re: Which historical figure would you like to meet?

ditto the dick feynman. If you could keep up, I'm sure spending time with him would be fascinating.

I'm sure there would also be some satifaction meeting hitler. Just to be able to kick him in the nuts. There would be some small comfort to know that he is suffering in the non-existant afterlife.

Re: Room 101

If cycle lanes are put into Room 101, there won't be any cycle lanes. Hmm. Can we put rubbish cycle lane designers in instead? I am convinced that much of the 'cycle lane network' was put in merely to make up the miles for the governemnt stats. (we all know and love those little political white lie...

Re: RNLI & Mountain Rescue pay the Government to use radios

That answer is the same as any given by this deceitful government. Say something, but don't actually commit to anything except to a 'study' of the issue. That way they can simply go on with whatever they want to do.

Labour; If you can think it, they can tax it.

Re: What do you make of this?

next he'll be posting pictures of himself with numerous guns, then he will brass up some school or university killing a few students and teachers before topping himself.

is it a UK site? In all seriousness, if it's not a wind-up, its the sort of thing that should be reported to the Met or FBI.

Re: What's your favourite hymn?

I always quite liked "Lord of the Dance" when I was a child, when I still thought I might possibly believe in a god (please don't shoot me) It's ok, the revolution is a few months off. You'll know when it happens. :wink: note to the PC brigade and government big brother types. It's a joke numb-nuts!

Re: What's your favourite hymn?

tbh I find 'all along the watchtower' much more moving than any hymn. I would also offer a few words of caution. Come the revolution and the transformation of the world into a secular paradise, anyone who answers yes to the "do you have a favourite hym?" trick question, will be put against a wall an...

Re: The Atheist Bus Campaign - is it a good use of money?

Maria, on the question of 'knowing' there is no god. It is a matter of the burden of proof. Do you 'know' that the world is round? Do you 'know' that something still exists when you personally cannot see it? At some point there is a stage where the evidence is such that we can feel confident that we...

I threw a few quid in the pot ... and was very happy to do so. If it raises the profile of those who do not believe, then it is definately a good thing.

Re: Adults hitting children

As with all things, context is essential. three reasons for hitting kids. 1. Deterring very dangerous behaviour. (tractor chicken.) 2. Asserting the parents dominant position. 3. 'normal' chastisement for bad behaviour. 1. ok 2. Unacceptable and makes the parent a loser. (my former step dad) 3. room...

Re: Britain urged to spot errors on public signs

I think you missed the point, Ski, which was about mispellings and grammatical errors. :) By 'stationary office', do you mean an office that doesn't move? *ducks* actually, I believe it was the graphical signs which are the focus of this, but there is always a first time for me to be wrong!! ;-p
