We would be drunk and mildly entertained?

That sounds pretty good to me. However its still 8:40 in the morning here, and at the very least I should wait until the sun is over the yard-arm.

Now this is abhorrent:

Man charged over Peckham baby death attack

A man has been charged with child destruction and causing grievous bodily harm with intent following an attack on a heavily-pregnant woman.

The 21-year-old, who was 32 weeks pregnant, lost her baby after being attacked by two men in Peckham, south London, on Monday evening.

...

Police said the woman was pushed to the ground by two men in motorcycle helmets who allegedly kicked and stamped on her stomach.

What is wrong with people???

@ES.....
Do you think it would help to offer a 'no questions asked' reward for the return of Sauron safe and sound?
If so, I would donate to such a reward fund.

Meow?

Mark, that is really kind of you. I have thought about it, but I was put off because someone was telling me how a cat like theirs had gone missing so the owner had put up a reward and she kept having to stop people from kidnapping her cat to try and claim the reward.

Perhaps if I keep the reward small enough so people won't be tempted to do something like that.

Either way, I won't take your money, but thank you anyway.

A Principal Cause: Media Violence

More at:http://www.indiana.edu/~cspc/ressenate.htm

You are joking right? That report is utter nonsense. Heavy metal causes violence? Playing games causes violence?

You know that study after study after study show that games, and to a greater degree the media does not cause violence right?

Perhaps not cite a study from 1999.

True.

Lead poisoning is actually a more likely factor.

If you hear a White Person person say "you have to understand": That is an Anti-Black Racist, and add that persons name to your 'Racist List'.

How is that racist? Its literally just a language cue for 'I'm trying to explain something to you'.

If you hear a White Person say "Blacks cannot 'Do It', unless they have the approval, liking and assistance, from their former/present oppressors: That is an Anti-Black Racist, and add that persons name to your Racist List.

Sure, but who here says that? I've yet to meet someone on S@H who claims such a thing. All I've seen is you claim that others here have said that.

Its another one of Clyde's straw man arguments.

Janne and et all...

Don't feel bad, but Zappy broke the bank once, by going over the limit on filters. Not sure, why he feels, he needs to block anyone.
As a Mod, I never had a problem with too many PMs or someone trying to get help that way.


It is his right to do so, but as a Mod, I feel it is not the proper way to go.

Just my 2 cents worth.

In an ideal world I would agree with you, but I have had to block someone who kept sending rude and threatening PMs. However, that is unusual as most PMs I get are very nice, but anyone who cannot be nice will be blocked.

The problem is that the PM blocking system is connected to the filter system, so you cannot choose to just block PMs from someone. I have never liked that.

Es99, Sorry to hear Sauron is still not home :(

* Have you tried Facebook to see if there is a local Lost & Found pet page?

She has been posted on the BC missing pets page since a couple of days after she went. I have an ad on Craigslist and I have put up posters in the neighbourhood and in the nearests vets and Starbucks. I also put leaflets in all the houses in our block in case she had got herself locked in someone's shed. Every night I have been out cycling parts of the neighbourhood shaking her kitty snack box and asking local dog walkers if they have seen her.

Nothing. She has just vanished into thin air. We are all totally heartbroken here. It hasn't rained since she left, so I am thinking she may come home when it does and its not so much fun hanging outside any more. Other than that I just have to hope someone finds her.

The US have a weird gun control IMO.
There are countries in World that have more guns per capita then the US.
Sweden:) Canada. Finland has 53 weapons per hundred person!
And it has nothing to do with political orientations...

I would say you have to put the problem down to the weird gun control in the US. The country has a ridiculous amount of shootings compared to other western countries.

If it isn't the gun laws, then there must be something wrong with Americans and they are a particularly murderous and violent people. I find that hard to believe and would rather think the problem is with the gun laws.

Most of the world, until recently, has had far more censorship of violence on TV and movies than the USA, especially for children's programming. Other countries also don't allow corporal punishment of children. Perhaps it isn't gun laws. Of course the fact that certified crazies are allowed to roam the streets here may account for some fraction of that.

So you are still suggesting that Americans are more violent that other people?

...

30 years ago during a Bell Labs seminar I heard the guru Michael Green from Queen Mary College predict that string theory would lead to the Grand Unified Theory in just a few months.

...

He was a lecturer when I was there. I remember him.

We are all feeling very sad that there is no sign of Sauron. I am sure she would come home if she were able.

I have started to search local bushes for her body. There are coyotes and sometime the raccoons have been known to kill cats around here. However, if it happened near by I would have heard something. So I really don't know what to think.

Our other cat, Gandalf, is missing her. They used to fight, but also they would play together outside. Gandalf never liked spending too much time outside on her own and before we got Sauron, would insist that we accompany her into the garden. Her and Sauron would hang out together out there, never far from each other. Now Gandalf mopes about the house looking for her. She won't eat the food from Sauron's bowl, but I am not yet ready to put Sauron's bowl away .

Gandalf has never been an athletic or even well co-ordinated cat. It was Sauron that taught her how to jump down from the shed roof, and it was Sauron who showed her how to climb in and out of the house through open windows. If you want to know what sort of cat Sauron was, go watch the movie "how to train your dragon" I should have called her Toothless.

Everyone is so sad and missing her so much.

Ess i don't believe you can't see the funny side of Clyde's misses being a better shot than him .
I wonder doe she put your uniform on to clyde or you to much of a nice Jewish boy to think like that . A bit of role playing , only make shore the guns are not loaded mate .

The problem with guns is that you don't have to be a particularly good shot to hurt someone at close range. A child can kill someone using a gun.

I would never have one in my home. Never.

heheheheheClyde there is nothing worse than a woman with a gun when there angry

You mite need to buy a bullet proof vest mate now or be a very god boy now she has the weapon and is a bloody good shot .

Its not really funny, especially as statistically she is more likely to end up the victim of gun violence. (watch Clyde freak out because he doesn't understand what statistically means).

For Women, Gun Violence Often Linked to Domestic Violence

"Just as in previous years, we found the most common weapon men use to murder women is a gun. For homicides in which the murder weapon could be identified, 52 percent of victims were shot and killed with a gun. The most common firearm was a handgun, used in 69 percent of the homicides committed with guns."

Yes, having a gun in the house is a really great idea. (sarcasm) Add to that the fact that statistically more cops or ex-cops are likely to be violent towards their partners...

No, I don't think its funny at all.

Only Racists believe Blacks are incapable.

You're being that guy from the internet again.

Sure they are capable...but does that mean they should have to overcome more obstacles than white people just to succeed? Are you ok with that?

The reality is that because of the legacy of slavery, which has impacted generations and helped to inform white people's perceptions of black people, they do have to better than a white person to succeed.

You might be fine with that, but to call anyone who isn't "racist" is simply ludicrous. Perhaps the problem isn't black people, perhaps its white people like you who refuse to admit there is a problem.

Micheal do you know what being a hermaphrodite is , i suggest you study it .

You may then understand what gender is and why people opt for the full sex change . You will also learn why there are gay people and at what time in a fetus life that happens .

You might be at uni but you still have much to learn about things

Glenn,
Gender and sex are actually two different things.

For example, a hemaphrodite might have sexual organs from both sex, but identify with one gender more than another.

A person might be of the male sex, but feel their gender is female.

How Black Slaves Were Routinely Sold As ‘Specimens’ To Ambitious White Doctors

"The history of human experimentation is as old as the practice of medicine and in the modern era has always targeted disadvantaged, marginalised, institutionalised, stigmatised and vulnerable populations: prisoners, the condemned, orphans, the mentally ill, students, the poor, women, the disabled, children, peoples of colour, indigenous peoples and the enslaved."

I've been watching the media coverage on this and from what I can see it was one of those "man freaks out because he is not allowed to beat his family" scenarios.

I put it in the whole "man freaks out and kills family because he is getting divorced" and "man freaks out and kills himself/children/family because things are going wrong in his life" category.

These events are not unusual, sadly, just the scale of his efforts to punish the world because he is not getting his own way.

'bout 350,000 White Slaves were Killed in 'U.S.' between beginnin' of 1600 to 1750.
..

You are talking about the Irish?

No one is pretending that the Irish suffered racism. I still remember signs in windows in the UK saying " No coloureds, No Irish".

However, those in indentured servitude had the chance to buy their freedom and their "slavery" was not intergenerational.

Does that somehow negate the American Black experience?

Glenn, seeing as that is the whole point of our discussion, I'd say I am aware.
