True, but will the many words of modern leaders stand the test of time as many of his has?

I'm left wondering why leaders of any time fail the heed the words of great leaders of the past...

Hopefully a repeat of 1912 can be avoided..
Later this year the original Cunard transatlantic crossing will be recreated as the Queen Mary 2 sails from Liverpool on the same route the Britannia took, to Halifax, Boston and New York.

Can't see what a Cunard ship has to do with the White Star Line's Titanic. Britannia Made her crossing on 4th July 1840 & was sunk as a target ship in 1880. Since then Cunard has no ship named Britannia.

Icebergs from Greenland..


Perhaps a confusion in name with Titanic's sister the Britannic?

Nope, I said icebergs, like in 1912...

& also mentioned the Britannia which was sunk in 1880. Made it's first transatlantic crossing on 4th July 1840 - Hmm, no icebergs existed then?

If your going to refer to specifics, say so, 1912 & Britannia does not compute :-)

Picky, picky.

This is a nice thread & could be just as good as the train thread. The best way to make sure of that is to post sensibly. I'm still waiting to see if icebergs only appeared to transatlantic shipping in 1912.

Up is Up, and Down is Down.
Righty tighty, Lefty loosey.
Left is never Right.
So Left is Wrong, and Left is Bad.
Any child can understand that, and many do.

I do.
Oh oh.

And we are old.
VERY old:)

That's why Clyde don't like me - I'm a left-hander :-)

When people such as yourself stop posting political B/S & provide your own personal views once in a while.

Sirius B...

Very mature. As always.

Haven't heard your attitude, since I was 16. Well maybe 18.

I do welcome your silliness. It is a necessary break, in this important discussion.

As an answer to your question: When The Left, as The Right, posts their B/S. I just point it out.

What exactly is your problem, when the foundation of your 'thinking' is shown to be totally....?

Just show why there is a God, or your Ideology (Same thing), is correct.

Of course you cannot. Therefore you, as an Ideologue, as Religious Fanatics also do, degenerate to name calling. As most of your posts display.

But you are interesting. In a weird sort of way.

Give it up Clyde - you have often mentioned others losing the argument when the name calling begins.

Tell me Clyde, just what is "Religious Fanatics"?

So you are a robot with no personal views? You just obeyed "the man's orders" is that it?

Sorry Vic you're still not seeing it. Are you telling me that there were no icebergs anywhere on that crossing before 1912, they suddenly appeared for that year only, considering how many crossings have actually been made, no one saw any?

By naming the ship & the year...


...Oh & there are a lot more safety devices & tools for modern ships compared to then.

Thanks Hev. please take my word for it, I'm perfectly safe. I'm going to say something here & I don't give a rat's ass what the "so called" alpha males on here may say or think.

I owe that young girl a debt of gratitude that I hope I can repay one day. That mother of hers is a warm hearted bubbly character & over the course of those two years...

...with what occurred last week & over the past 2 days shows that even with those nice attributes she is 5 cans short of a 6 pack.

If people want to label me sexist for that, more fool them.

Thanks Es. I hope I did not come across as contentious. I agree with your clarification. Both men & women should be able to do as they please - however, they should also accept the consequences should any arise from pleasing themselves.

One good thing has came from the situation here. The daughter said when she left here that if any problems getting her mum home, she'll do as I advised, stop off here for a coffee & relax, then go home.

She never came back so assumed all okay. Unfortunately yesterday afternoon she visited. Shortly after leaving here she tried to get her mother to come home. The mother screamed at her & called the police to have her removed from her boyfriend's home.

Not all police are bad as portrayed in other threads. They asked the daughter what was wrong & they called her Social Services support worker who came up from her home - took her home for the night & drove her home in the afternoon. Sadly her mother called the police again, this time to have her daughter removed from her home.

Before leaving she stopped off here & the social worker hugged me for making that lovely girl's mind up in taking the action that she as well as others have been telling her for months. Personally I found that to be a wonderful relief as that young girl with all that she has experienced had her head on straight.

The best news that the area had was this morning. Due to her mothers stupidity in calling the police that night, the following morning two police vans arrived & raided the druggies home. Report sent to local council. That's him evicted for moving in with that girl's mother & sub-letting his home.

I think my main problem is that over the last decade being at grass roots level, see too much of this, which is why I posted that question.

Personally I think it is a very valid question in today's society & needs to be asked regardless of any "sexist" claims.

Maybe, but you do have to give her kudos - to stop, get out, give the cops the "bird" get back in & drive off. She did as she pleased :-)

However, it cost her! WAS IT WORTH IT?

Never is.

As every adult instructed us, many decades ago:

Do what the Cops say. If you didn't, they would say (with much truth):

"Are you stupid, or something".

Have to agree with that. I made that mistake just once. Weigh station not far from Downham Market, got stopped by a VOSA employee accompanied by a female cop.

Q: Are you loaded?
A: No, empty returning home.
Q: Can you pull into the station please?
A: Why? I'm empty.

VOSA employee says nothing but looks at cop - Cop asks me the same question & got the same answers

Final Q from cop, please pull into station or I will arrest you. I entered station.

Why did I object? Because weighing stations are to check for overloaded vehicles. Just what was the point in weighing an empty vehicle (take into consideration that if station busy, one could be there several hours).

It didn't end there. At the station waiting my turn, same cop comes up to me & lays into me verbally. Actually came out & accused me of being offensive to women & did I object to female police officers. I still do not know to this day how my answers inferred that.

Now all I do is "yes sir no sir 3 bags full sir & fail to tell them I have onboard cameras running.

Look again. Near the end one of the cops looked into the rear of the vehicle - at a guess, that was to make sure there were no kids in there.
