Had them in the early 80's.  I think the barracks must advice them to avoid it due to jealous local guys always starting with them...

I think they also don't go into the pubs in colinton village but can't see locals starting bother there.

 

There was a big scrap between locals and squaddies in The Goodies recently. Apparently the locals had the squaddies fleeing the pub.

I used to cycle through it after going to tbe supermarket behind it and saw some sights.  Some of the women were a bit dodgy look wise.  They must've got their wives through pen pals and never what they were getting.   I know a guy done work in the scheme and he agreed.  I couldn't do as I'd get battered.  You'd chap the door and ask to see the wife not realising that was the wife.  They were RAF  rough as...  

Good that locals aren't intimidated by them as some can play on it.

tradition, but all the dead dolphins are distributed to the residents for food and anything else they can use them for

There’s a video kicking about that shows this “tradition”taking place . The sounds of the dolphins and whales , many of whom are with young , is horrendous . 
It’s a bizzare way for us to be protecting the planet !

4.5 billion animals have been slaughtered for food in the UK this year alone, every single one of which will have gone through an horrendous experience. 

 

What's the big fuss about 1,400 dolphins?

That was the England v Scotland game at the Euros. 3 Rifles based at Dreghorn.

The police were picking up casualties scurrying back up the road.

No doubt that the squaddies are more than a match for the local young team, but it's the entire pub they end up fighting.

Domesticated animals bred for food as opposed to wild animals ?


Any animal in the UK food chain should be treated with the utmost care right up to the point of their dispatch , anyone found to not be doing this should find the whole weight of the law thrown at them . 
 

terrified animals being driven into a bay to then be killed with tools that in all likely hood won’t kill them with one blow , I’m not sure it’s humane , do you ?

I'm not sure killing anything is humane unless it's to ease suffering. I definitely don't think animals bred for food are treated in a humane manner...which I guess was his point.

I couldn’t have watched that. Turns my stomach to see then turning it into sone thing like a family trip to the cinema.

 

The suffering mental and physical that these poor creatures go through must be horrific.

I'm not particularly opinionated on the meat is murder subject to be honest but I don't really see what difference it makes if they are bred in captivity or live in the wild although I take your point that there wouldn't be as many cows etc. if we didn't eat them. 

 

Your 'terrified animals being driven.....' line applies equally to both situations.

Correct. There's nothing humane about herding up animals and firing metal bolts into their heads, electrocuting them or slitting their throats while they are still alive (although they are supposedly 'stunned' so can't feel anything).

Absolutely, we all have it. My initial reaction was the same as 3fingers. It's completely hypocritical though.

Not sure how true it is, but had a colleague a while back who had been told that most of the recycling stuff ends up in landfill anyway.

yep, just look at the british reaction to places like china eating cats and dogs, or the horsemeat scandal a few years ago. it is no different to (assuming the killing is done as humane as possible - that is another debate) us eating chicken or beef. the thing you can point to is we see cats, dogs and horses as pets so see them differently to cows and chickens.

 

as barneybattles says it is a hypocritical viewpoint but that seems to be human nature.

i know that used to be true and it might still be. one thing that does affect it is the macbines that sort the recyling sometimes cannot distinguish between different colours of plastic. they also cannot tell the difference between crushed and uncrushed cans meaning those people who think crushing cans is helping might not be

Don't know if that makes it better or worse for you, bud.

 

At least you don't have to worry about your family sorting their rubbish now, I suppose... :placate:

 

But think of all that recyclable landfill 😖

 

We're pretty shit as a species, both to other species and our home.

Exactly, we are taught at an early stage what are pets and what is food. I get angry when people will be horrified at the killing or mistreatment of a "pet" whilst they chew down on a burger or drink a glass of milk. We only have to look at how male chicks are dispatched in the egg industry and meantime millions feed garden birds and tell you how much joy they bring.

The grindadrap looks horrific and I suppose its a similar idea to what happens in abattoirs but they have walls around them so we don't get to see how our pork chops arrives on our plate.

 

Like most folk I have a hypocritical view of it as I eat meat, eggs etc and drink milk but am still quite disgusted at the dolphin and whale slaughters where they're herded and beaten/hacked to death.

 

So as long as I wolf down delicious pork chops with homemade apple sauce I cant really complain.....and I have no Planes on going veggie. 

None at all.

Just sums it all up I suppose. Your last sentence is exactly where I am. We ARE the plague. Despite all the advancements we've made in so many different ways, as a species, we're just shit as yo say.

I ordered a new phone today and went in to review my network providers package. I have all the family on my account and noticed my boys (12) bill was higher than mine by quite a bit. His phone bill is in excess of £50 a month. I look into the bill and it appears a company(s) have been sending him texts at £1.25 a pop. Now he thought these were nuisance texts and blocked them. Anyway, after a phone call with network provider it appears they have charged me close to £200 in text charges.

 

Now after a couple of phone calls I’m entitled to that money back and have submitted my claim for reimbursement as he’s under 16 so can’t sign up to anything like this. Both the network provider and the company charging were quite helpful, in enable me to claim reimbursement after they found out he’s 12.


Seriously how the **** can companies get away with sending you a text and charging you for privilege.

Companies seem to get away with a lot these days , my biggest crack up is car insurance companies charging for changing details on your policy, rip off.

Vodafone late payment fees. I pay my bill every month, usually on pay day along with other bills but I have accrued £10 in late payment fees, which I refuse to pay as in five years as a customer, I have never not paid my bill. 

 

They can cut me off if they like. It's principles. It's principalities.

I have a real bad habit of misplacing/losing things. Keys, wallets being the prime problems.

 

Anyway after a couple of incidents last week, the wife gets really pissed of with my antics and tells me to go to buy some air tags. Anyway, I take her advice and decide will buy a few and stick on some keys and my wallet. 
 

They arrive today, when I was out. So the wife tells me they’ve arrived and suggests I’m better putting them on before I loose something. Anyway, currently can’t find two sets of car keys, set of keys and just found my wallet.

 

I’m an arsehole. The worst of it I’m going to have to ask the wife to track them down as I ain’t managed to locate.

Went out for a few drinks on sunday so to save pocket space I unclipped the house keys and just took those. Fast forward to monday morning and no sign of the house keys, not in my jacket or jeans, spend 20mins looking for them before discovering that I must have drunkenly clipped them back to the car keys so they would be easy to find in the morning!

I took the principle route with Virgin Mobile when they continued to bill me for 3 months after i'd cancelled my contract, refused to pay and it then took 6 years for that 120 quid to wipe off my credit history, nearly stopping a mortgage application at one point.

 

There's having principles but there is also being pragmatic as much as it sticks in the throat!

They usually phone chasing payment before cutting you off so I'll wait and explain to them as they have written it off in the past. Today was an online chat and the guy just clearly copied and pasted his reply. 

 

If I have to pay it I will eventually but not without an argument. I'm leaving Vodafone at the end of my contract anyway. When you think about it, contract phones are a complete rip-off. I've not properly worked it out but I'm convinced I've paid this phone off and then some and I still have £45 a month until June.

a helicopter parent is one who is takes an overprotective or excessive interet in their childs life. they literaly hover over them while they do things like homework. while they can be good intentioned it would be smothering for the child and can end up with them being entitled little brats as they will have not had consequences for their actions as the parent would blame everyone else for their kid say stealing a mars bar
