RE: What makes you think, you would make a good partner?

I don't.

I'm in no position to be a good partner.

RE: Living And The Dead

From the present, it would be Clive Stafford Smith, but he'd have to bring his wife along. I've not seen an interview, documentary, seminar, or debate where he hasn't mentioned his wife. I know so much about her, it would be nice to finally meet her. Besides, I'd be rather tongue tied and inclined towards embarrassing obsequiousness in front of the mighty Clive without her.

From the past, it would be the Polish resistance fighter, Jozef Bylicki.

RE: GOOD BYE JEEEPERS (I will always love you)

My phone's having none of it, Debs.

I've worked out how to highlight in other places, but just can't do it with forum posts.

Start another one?

RE: GOOD BYE JEEEPERS (I will always love you)

I can't click on links, Debs.

Bump it and let's have a play. laugh

RE: GOOD BYE JEEEPERS (I will always love you)

I remember that thread of his - something like, go and be nice to someone, banter with the person serving you in a shop, help someone out, whatever, and report back.

I remember him telling me he'd been diagnosed with late stage cancer and working out from the dates that his reaction to the news was to create that thread.

I think he had quite a big impact on me and others. I think his influence must live on in many, many people.

That's a pretty good legacy, I'd say.

RE: Evil

Satan enters the body and mind of innocent children through Slush Puppies and strawberry laces.

Glow in the dark tongues and dental plaque are the mark of the beast.

It's just so fecking difficult to capture them and pin them down to perform the purification ritual with Little Steps toothpaste and a dinosaur toothbrush. sigh

RE: Sapiosexual.

Not all bookish people are intelligent and not all intelligent people are bookish.

But a certain kind of intelligence is as hot as red hot chilli peppers.

I get Ivor's pistons pumping for the love of it, not money. There's nothing like letting off a little steam. snooty

Non - behave yourself, or you'll get a good Heiding.

RE: Life sentences

You have a slight dilemma, or two here.

If someone wishes to end their own life, they may be classed as mental ill.

To execute a mentally ill person is against international law.

Execution is not the same as voluntary euthanasia, suicide, or assisted suicide.

You'd need a process for this, including establishing the prisoner is sound of mind and therefore capable of making the decision.

You'd also need an assisted suicide, or euthanasia procedure which is different from the current execution procedures.

Undoubtedly, a fair number of death row inmates would opt for assisted suicide, or euthanasia given the current position of the lethal injection in the US.

In which case, I'm not sure you could claim free choice, given the threat of the alternative. Coercion would be an issue.

Plus, there would likely be a public outcry that there wasn't enough cruel and unusual punishment involved.

RE: Why are the current CS forums predominantly occupied by white people?

Rainbow, I'm pretty sure I saw a post by Chesneychrist the other day, holding you personally accountable for some of the actions of your nation.

To hold Muslim members of CS personally responsible for the actions of some people who claim to have the same religious beliefs is equally ridiculous.

The West is also guilty of breaking international law and committing war crimes. Millions of people have been killed in the East in the name of Christianity and people there also live in fear. I don't see many people speaking out about 'our' terrorist behaviours, either.

And it's not like we have equality here in the UK. We may have made some progress, but it wasn't all that long ago that women lost their jobs if they married and we still don't have gender pay parity. It wasn't all that long ago when people were murdered for being homosexual.
'Queen bashing' was an issue for my friends when I was at university.

We have a small opportunity here on these international forums to break down boundaries and prejudices. Unfortunately, we appear to be wasting it.

RE: Why are the current CS forums predominantly occupied by white people?

With all the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment expressed on these forums, it's hardly surprising people don't want to attempt to socialise, only to be treated with fear and hatred.

People get enough of that walking down the street.

Y'know, sometimes when it's cold or raining, I wear a head scarf. I get shouted at in the street pretty much every time.

I'm also one of those people who is snowy white in appearance, but has 'mixed race' on their profile. That's because I'm snowy white in appearance and mixed race. I can only apologise I'm not colour coded for convenience.

If we are to have a greater racial diversity, it's not just a case of saying diversity is welcome. We have to know how to act. In order to know how to act, listening, learning and understanding is perhaps a reasonable place to start.

RE: Fill in the blank

A quiet man is a thinking man, but a quiet woman is...thinking, "It's not that difficult to find, ffs."

RE: Your ex

This man does not appear to care for the two women, but a man who only looks after himself.

I agree with Ali, he cheating both women.

If I were in this situation, I think I would be happier being friends with the other woman and not bothering with him. laugh

RE: ABORTION...Yes or No, and WHY?

Nam, I not concerned about your opinion as long as you can back it up with a logical argument.

From that position we could move to whatever comes from that.

What I can't do is follow through an argument when your responses have no connection with mine. That's just random statements. It's not a debate.

RE: Present Day On-Screen Lovers

I'm not sure if you'll allow 2010 as present day, but Mandira and Rizwan Khan in My Name is Khan, played by Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan.

RE: ABORTION...Yes or No, and WHY?

Nam, thanks for agreeing to debate with me, but as your response has diddly squat to do with the questions I proposed, there is no point in continuing. I had no intention of leaving anything out, but you do need tackle complex issues with a certain amount of order to avoid logical fallacy.

Leave fallacious arguments floating around and you fail to protect vulnerable people. My last post to you was meant to be the be the beginning of demonstrating that with respect to the subject of abortion, men, women and children may all be vulnerable. The difficulty is perhaps the conflicting vulnerabilities and how we go about managing that.

Talking of logical fallacy kaylana, I've not responded to your posts thus far precisely because of the glaring logical fallacies. An example would be using the constitutional 'all men are born equal' and applying it to the unborn. If you want to extend equal rights to the unborn there will be valid ways of doing that, but you need to recognise that your constitution written in a different time frame omits this section of society.

I'm not terribly impressed with name calling as argument, either.

RE: ABORTION...Yes or No, and WHY?

So, we're not talking about whether abortion should be an option, or not, but under what circumstances.

Okay, say a woman doesn't want to abort an ectopic pregnancy. Is there any circumstance where someone can override her decision? Say, the father of the child disagrees? Or there's a resulting, life threatening medical emergency, perhaps where the woman loses consciousness?

How about a life threatening situation late term pregnancy? Either the mother, or the child can be saved, but not both. Who gets to be a part of the decision making process? Who has the right to veto?

RE: ABORTION...Yes or No, and WHY?

So, would you agree that if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy she should be offered her options so she may choose the right course of action for herself?

RE: ABORTION...Yes or No, and WHY?

In which case, we appear to have a communication problem. I don't understand why you said all those things in response to my post. confused

RE: What is going on in South Africa?

I've already pointed out the standing of this paper to you, Miwagi.

In your own words, it's not a gutter paper, but it is teetering on the kerb.

I find it unfortunate that Nelson Mandela couldn't have lived for another 100 years, or so.

Whilst I appreciate the unfairness of black South Africans still living in abject poverty whilst white South Africans own land, I suspect the poorest people won't benefit from a move to reclaim the nation in this manner.

RE: Every,Cloud/Storm/Blizzard Has A Silver Lining!!

We're not getting big, soft snowflakes here. It's more like hail the size of sand grains.

I guess it's unusually cold with less than our usual humidity. I dunno, I'm no weather nerd. I've never seen anything quite like it, though.

When I was out yesterday, many paths were clear with the snow blowing about a centimetre off the ground in ripples, a bit like sand on a windy beach. Beautiful, mesmerising and bizarre to watch.

RE: Every,Cloud/Storm/Blizzard Has A Silver Lining!!

The snow here is rubbish!

My granddaughter made a couple of snow angels yesterday, but it's too dry and powdery to even make snowballs.

I've stayed in today. It's so quiet I could be the only person left on the planet. laugh
