Yeah, but at least we had the stones to tell the monarchy to bugger off.
Not that we don't do a lot of stupid stuff as well, but at least we
haven't kept a clan of figureheads on the public dole for the last N
Um, the cultural education is nice but what's it got to do
with electrical connections to a battery holder? Bizarre is
fun but at least I try to keep my jokes within the subject
matter being discussed. 8-)
Many thanks to all. The push on brass connectors are a welcome solution,
many thanks. I can easily buy those at Maplins.
To throw a little light on this unnecessary rudeness to our American
cousins. The expression Amearkin came up because in the U.S. they could say
American so quickly it sounded like Amearkin. So across the pond they became
However some low lifes changed this to Merkins. A few hundred years ago in
order to deal with body lice, ladies would shave their lower private parts.
Since this was deamed un-attractive, they could buy small triangular wigs
which were called...you guessed it Merkins. Please dont let the low-lifes
get you down, we have as many here as you have there. And they just love the
Teasing is part of the Usenet experience, if we didn't like you we
wouldn't even respond to you. You get a bunch of guys together and
they are going to throw jabs at each other and kid around. It's
basically what we call horseplay. It's like those celebrity roasts
that are shown on TV, some of the most horrible and vile insults
are thrown about by friends. 8-)
The only time I've seen that happen is when someone attacks the family
or children of a nasty poster. I'll pounce and tell them to leave the
uninvolved folks out of it. One particularly foul individual posted a
farewell to his grandmother who had just passed away and a rival started
making fun of the late old woman. I let him know real quick it was in
bad taste and to direct his anger at Mr. Nasty and not someone who was
defenseless. There is such a thing as propriety.
I've had online and real life stalkers, and one ass who posted some
lies about my long dead mother. So I asked why he was online, when he
was supposed to be picking up his hooker wife. He was furious, and got
even madder when not one of his cronies agreed with him. Sometimes you
have to hit them with a six foot 2"*4", right between the eyes before
they get the message. He had been making fun of the fact that I'm a
disabled US Army Veteran and bragged that he was exempt from military
service, because he was diabetic. He harped anout it for months, with
others reminding him that he started it. I had dumped him into the bit
bucket, so I only saw it in replies.
