RE: Language

I attached to you your ability to insult others in a language other than your own. Something you clearly displayed on your post. The thing is though, insults carry little weight if they're devoid of any truth or miss the mark completely.
I'd be the first to admit, English people are lazy when it comes to learning other languages, it's just not seen as important as it might be by people of other, particularly European countries. But there's always a way of communicating other than in a common language. Quite often part of the fun and challenge when travelling far afield.

RE: Language

I guess there is an advantage to being multilingual......you can insult people in different languages. Not very attractive though.

RE: Language

Stereotyping can lead to a blinkered view of the world. I travel a lot to many different countries, usually off the beaten track. English has always got me through, although I guess if any language would have been of benefit at times, it's Spanish, Panama comes to mind.
Lazy at leaning languages I might be...boring, I don't think so...grin

RE: Language

I'm English, I don't need to learn any other languages.

RE: Do you live in your own reality?

Nowhere or nothing exists outside of your own reality and there is no place to be outside of your own reality. 'No thing' exists independently from its own side, you cannot separate yourself from your perception of reality.

RE: Forgive/Forget ?

People are perfectly capable of forgiveness, in fact once you've realised what a burden resentment and blame really is, bearing a grudge becomes no longer an option.
Forgive and forget however isn't usually possible, the mind cannot erase at will. The best we can do is forgive and lose interest.

RE: Are you getting a covid-19 shot ?

If it is an attempt to reduce world population, I'm all for it, makes perfect sense. It's the only hope the human race has got, even more so for the creatures we share the planet with.

Happy Birthday to my favourite leg-end on here.

We Really Need to Talk About That Dolores Cahill COVID-19 Video

Recently, a video interview with Dolores Cahill and Computing Forever's Dave Cullen has been making the rounds and calling into question many of the basic facts around SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, social distancing, and public health policy .

I think it would benefit people to know who Dolores Cahill is. Her claim to expertise is a PhD and a professorship at University College Dublin, School of Medicine , which on its face initially seems relevant to the discussion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. What is often left out in discussing her background is that she also happens to be chairwoman for the Irish Freedom Party a right-wing Euroskeptic party with a history of amplifying or outright endorsing a range of conspiracy theories including the white nationalist "grand replacement" conspiracy theory [5, 6]. Now, while this latter fact alone personally gives me great pause when it comes to her ability to reliably interpret facts, I still think it is best to take her ideas on their own merits and see what she is saying.

Unfortunately, despite that fact that her academic training should lead her to be more knowledgeable about the SARS-CoV-2 virus, she seems to get almost every single factual statement about it wrong in this video. I personally feel worse off for having watched her video. Here are the highlights so you do not have to watch this yourself or so you can respond effectively to those that have.

RE: Are you getting a covid-19 shot ?

Hmm, seems it could be the old three sides to every story....

RE: Be anything, but...

I'll drink to that....cheers

RE: Be anything, but...

True, to pass on happiness and strive to ease others suffering is the greatest gift we can give to humanity. Some might say, as human beings, its our true purpose in life.

RE: Be anything, but...

I'd say it's more of a 'mind set' than a choice. Happiness comes much easier to some than to others.

RE: Be anything, but...

Is happiness a choice?

RE: Stories from the road

It was supposed to be a quick forty minute flight through the mountains, but after twenty minutes the pilot aborted the flight and returned back to Peshawar. I wasn't totally surprised, we were warned this might happen, well it is regarded as one of the most dangerous passenger flights in the world. So, with the two later flights that day also cancelled, we had no choice but to find a bus that would take us on our journey.

This was easier said than done. It took us a few hours of being led round the back streets of Peshawar followed by a small crowd of curious children in search of the illusive bus to Chitral. Finally our friendly self proclaimed helper pointed down a dirty looking alleyway and exclaimed, "Chitral, bus to Chitral down there." So, after a further three hour wait we finally boarded our bus to Chitral, and I use the term 'bus' loosely, I didn't even have any glass in the window I was sat next to.

I cannot describe the following twenty seven hour journey on here, it would too long. Best I can do mention a few of the highlights of the journey. I could mention how we were ambushed on two occasions, or how the driver was beaten on three other occasions.
Or not to mention him breaking his big toe when he kicked the punctured tyre in frustration as it was our second puncture and we no longer had a spare.

It was at this point we decided to abandon the bus, leave the luggage on board and try and get a lift the rest of the way to Chitral. This was not an easy task, we were in the middle of nowhere in the baking sun and not a vehicle to be seen for almost an hour. Finally a jeep appeared in the distance and with a screech of brakes and a cloud of dust, the driver, (who appeared to be at least a year off becoming a teenager,) beckoned us over. It turned out the jeep was owned by a judge from Chitral and he was most pleased to have three Westerners to join him for the rest of the journey. So, off we went at what seemed breakneck speed, the judge apologised for his young drivers apparent reckless speed over a very poor road, but explained, "I told him to put his foot down, I've just sat on a case in Swat, (a different district to Chitral) and I'm going to be home very late.
He insisted on dropping us at our hotel in Chitral and then insisted we go to his house the following evening for dinner. As he was leaving he said, "don't forget, I send my driver to pick you up tomorrow night and bring you to my house."

He did....and the meal was wonderful.

RE: Who has dated someone from another country and how was it for you ??

Thinking about Ralph, he dated and eventually married someone from another country. They met on here , Maria moved over to Edinburgh from Spain when they married. Quite a success story for cs.

RE: Who has dated someone from another country and how was it for you ??

Do you remember Pat from Glasgow? Can't remember his username, he's been gone for a long time now. Ralph from Edinburgh was great fun, I stayed in contact with him on fb after he left.

RE: Who has dated someone from another country and how was it for you ??

Well there's a name from the long distant past. How are you Jim boy, great to see you.

RE: Today shall be...

It's worth noting, especially when children might be playing around a vegetable patch, that any part of potato plants above the ground, flowers, leaves and stems are extremely toxic. The sprouts of the potato and and any parts of the potato beneath the skin which are green are also poisonous.
