Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

We are long past the time for removing ALL hate crime laws. As you said, they are bad laws that create division rather than removing it. I'm gobsmacked! Does the place name Charlottesville ring a bell? How hate crime laws, that work in the US just like the description Greenboots gave of UK law, cre...

I'm with you on that one Grok.

Re: Non - US views on last night’s election debate

Carl said, Without the 2-term restriction we'd likely still have Cheney/Dubya on the throne. Or how about 20 years of Trump? Anything is possible; but the practical thing is to limit yourself to reasonably likely. In the first place, by the end of his 2nd term, Dubya was pretty much done with Cheney...

Re: Non - US views on last night’s election debate

Good observations B&B. Age has little to do with the ability to listen and learn; for some it's a lifelong habit, for others it's something they don't learn until they get their youth behind them and in Trump's case, he never had that capacity (read his niece's book). Biden was a member of the US Se...

Re: Wildfires in the US

When Ford was developing his first car he was working for Detroit Edison. Westinghouse and Edison were bitter rivals. If for no other reason than Tesla virtually invented alternating current and Edison was stuck on direct current, which is the type of electricity produced by batteries. I don't know ...

Re: Being Judged, Fired, for what you wear....

I can easily see how little kids could be scared by this character; when I first saw him I jumped in my chair.

Say what you will about me; that's a look I can't support.

Re: Wildfires in the US

One of the reasons we’re so dependent upon the ic engine is because of the efforts of JD Rockefeller, working in cahoots with the self publicist Thomas Edison. They persuaded Henry Ford to develop the petrol fuelled device instead of working on alternatives, which he was keen to do. Good news for R...

I second what Skirts Dad says.

Don't hesitate to vent -- like a volcano if necessary -- here. You've got a whole lot of caring brothers who are hurting with you.

Re: 2020 Emmy Awards.

The rules of fashion that I worry about are the ones that help you put an outfit together that is pleasing to the eye. The rules I ignore if not outright disdain are the dumb out of date notions such as, "Only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Give me a "cottage" (pronounced over the to...

Re: 2020 Emmy Awards.

Because I accept that my desire to wear womenswear is rooted in the feminine elements of my personality I haven't been put off by the expression "getting in touch with one's feminine side." But as I thought about Dust's and other's discomfort with the expression, I realized that those of us who feel...

I don't know what "over tailored" means, but I think it's a sharp looking outfit ... until you get to his footwear. If you'll notice, he's got 3 dark bands on the left sleeve of his jacket so maybe the 3 white stripes on the left sock are supposed to balance the dark bands. It IS sometimes hard to i...

Re: Wildfires in the US

The planet cycles between warm and cool periods, and has since things settled down from the earliest formation. The geologic record points this up handily. At the moment, it's simply warming up from the last cool period and we're stuck in the middle of it. The episode of Nova showed the cycle of CO...
