    Not a believer in "an eye for an eye" then.
    No... if they lose an eye they might be liable to claim disability benefit.

    I record films of the tele with my BT box thingy. It's quite good. I have rather a lot I need to watch now and I don't really have enough time to watch them.

    On QT she also said all soldiers will rape in given circumstances. Absolutely disgusting comments.

    In that piece though, I agree with her. At least until the end, with her rant about women not having time or opportunity to participate in leisure activities. It isn't really a problem that women and men choose different things to do for fun, why make a point of it?

    I still remember seeing a Marxist feminist having a go at my M on sky news saying women faced a situation as bad as apartheid

    While we're talking about thieving, I want to run something past you guys (particularly socialists).

    When I was on holiday, I found out that one of the people who I was with (whom I didn't know very well) was an 'ethical shoplifter'. I first came across this when he took an orange juice from Stansted Airport. This continued throughout the trip with thefts from Spanish supermarkets, service stations and museums.

    The justification for this was that as we get ****ed over by large companies who steal from us, rip us off and exploit us, it's only fair that we take some of that stuff back, especially in the context that there is enough 'stuff' in the world for everyone to be comfortable. I wondered what people thought of that view and if it justifies the shoplifting.
    The manufacture may not feel the difference of the thievery but the stores may depending on their size as they pay the wholesaler for the products which they then need to sell to make the money back plus profit to keep in business.

    Your friend is a thief who doesn't understand business if he thinks it doesn't effect stores

    Dude, come to London; there's a 24h psy-trance rave going on. Free entry before 1am, you can take your own alcohol, it's underground (not a club). Was meant to be in the woods but they changed it because of the rain.

    Nah, I'm staying away from London for the forseable future, hence why I'm missing the meet.

    You're like an ephemeral butterfly, gracing people for but the briefest of moments, resplendent moments, until you fade away and their lives become just a little darker :moon:
