RE: Trust or no ...

Ahhh sooo you're doing a course and getting us to do your homework for you??? tut tut scold professor laugh

Isn't ego basically fear...and born out of the need for self preservation? Else we'd be extinct by now, alleaten by those really cute spotted tigers laugh

RE: Trust or no ...

We can think ourselves into illness..does that mean we can think ourselves better again?

RE: Trust or no ...

people tell you in all sorts of ways if they're trustworthy or not..learning how to listen to what people are really saying helps

RE: Trust or no ...

oh well spotted bodleign laugh

RE: Where it all began…?

Ah my parents never really got into that kinda stuff.. it wasn't their style, so I guess that's why I never took any notice of it either....just rolled my eyes and turned my attention to something I was interested in...

RE: Exercise...;)

hold your hand up. Counting your fingers from your little finger on one hand all the way to little finger on other hand...

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. on first hand then 6. 7. 8. 9. 10 on other hand..



Now count backwards ... starting at the little finger that was 10

10, 9, 8, 7, and you should arrive at your thumb, 6.

you should be left with all the fingers on the other hand still up..

Basic arithmetic states...

10 - 6 = 4.

So how come you still have five fingers up?

Hard to explain via writing, so I hope that makes sense...

RE: Exercise...;)

God yeh, bet that's the right answer....

RE: The things that are visible but in reality do not exist.

I've seen loads of double rainbows and a few triple. , when you come from a country where it rains almost every day ya it's a certainty you'll see stuf like that.

What was really weird was something else, the drive to work was sometimes atop the clouds with nothing to see but the tops of tall trees..it was actually really dense very low lying fog but the most surreal feeling ever..

Another one was seeing the trees breathing, again on the way to work very early morning, clear sky and a faint plume of breath-like cloud , similar to your breath on a very cold day...if you didnt' look closely you'd almost miss it.....

Lots of interesting stuff out there in the natural world if only people just took a moment to stop and look...

RE: What makes humans unique compared to other species?

not so, my son's girlfriend's dog thinks us humans are all there for his entertainment ...and his entertainment only....

Ants keep, farm, and milk aphids....not entertainment per say...but.....

RE: What makes humans unique compared to other species?

Any species that becomes prolific will do damage.. it's inevitable..

But yes, the damage we're doing is far beyond what any animal can or could do...and will take thousands of years for the planet to fix itself after we're gone...

RE: Thread for Autistics.

Nope, can't see it in there anywhere.....mustn't be in the lexicon....doh

RE: Abusive.......

No, (ghosting) definitely isn't abusive, that's just thoughtless, or stupid, or just plain mean even....small bad behaviours aren't abusive either unless they're repetitive and then it could/does amounts to abuse...e.g getting cross with a child once in a blue moon is normal, getting cross often/ very reguarly over every little thing/minor stuff could be considered abusive because it could have such a profound affect on the child, their confidence, self esteem etc. Getting cross with your spouse every day might (not) be justiied but it wont have the same life long profound effect it would on the child.....

Abusive is a strong powerful word, use it with caution and use it wisely. throwing words around like that in your every day life could destroy someone's life in a blink....and that would make you the abuser...

RE: Abusive.......

Define abusive?

RE: Texas school shooting

So?.. I could be from Timbuktu and it'd be absolutely none of your business.. nor am I answerable to you either

You mustn't know the difference between nationality and location either...doh roll eyes laugh

RE: Why are people so judgmental ? Are they either

Excatly whom am I pretending to be eh? Cause that's news to me....*shoes..hmmm..... do I have the right shoes for this person I'm supposed to be I wonder*....


I've never once claimed to be Scottish, so no idea where you're getting that rubbish from....I can barely understand a word they say...

As for the rest, it sounds like you're just ranting whatever rubbish comes into your head ...roll eyes

RE: GASLIGHTING

The OP didn't ask about it in a domestic violence context though....or any context for that matter...

RE: The things that are visible but in reality do not exist.

I do wonder if some of the posters on here are all there.... hmmm smile

RE: Why are people so judgmental ? Are they either

Lets hope not..it's rather entertaining sometimes laugh

RE: Why are people so judgmental ? Are they either

Does that mean you're over your bitter hatred of me then ? laugh

RE: Why are people so judgmental ? Are they either

People being cruel to you on here?

Noooo...I don't believe that for one second...all happy clappy little paragons of virtue on here we are...laugh

RE: Have you ever been searched by the police?

Ah come on Bodleign, you know fine well it isn't...laugh

RE: Are Dying Wishes Sacrosanct?

Personally, I think that's such a personal issue and dying wishes can range from the most simple to the most abstract/complicated it's kinda between the deceased and those they've left behind to decide. Not for total strangers to decide.

RE: where is God?????

I the same but from the opposte end of the spectrum, I can't understand how any one can actually believe there's any such thing as a God..

RE: Do you drive? If so...describe it.

True...I'd rather be galloping a horse up the motorway than a car laugh

RE: Do you drive? If so...describe it.

Who ? me or the car?

doh blathin. she means the car of course laugh laugh

RE: Thread for Autistics.

Crikey Miss C, your last two posts...I can't even begin to imagine how hard that must be for you (and your family)... teddybear hug

RE: GASLIGHTING

Hahaha...and there's the perfect cue to do a bit of gaslighting laugh

I just can't be bothered...laugh

RE: Texas school shooting




it's not the laws or the saleman not seeing reg flags...you can't put the blame for what's going on in your schools onto the shoulders of some salesman....The problem is far far far more insidious and symptomatic than that...and the American mindset (towards a lot of things) is at the root of the problem...

RE: GASLIGHTING

you don/t' consider domestic violence to be extreme?


Seems we have very different ideas on what constitutes extreme then, because I can assure you I, and most people I know, would certainly consider domestic violence to be extreme... in all contexts...
