    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    i totally understand what you're saying and i'm all for being kind and considerate, hell i'm often told that i'm too nice or considerate (to the point where i end up with people walking over me). but my point is simply that i think some people are far too easily offended. if someone jovially referred to me as 'honky' or 'cracker' i wouldn't be offended, change the tone to an aggressive or insulting tone then that changes, it would make me think "*suitcase*, this guy is making a point of the fact i'm white and doesn't sound too happy about it." i guess the (rather jumbled) point i'm trying to make is that the word itself isn't offensive, it's the message that's delivered with it.

    this is more or less how i feel on the matter. it often feels like we're being forced to perceive a collection of letters and noises as being offensive whether there is actually any reason to be offended or not. like baz said, it's odd and wrong that skin colour or sexuality should automatically make whatever you say offensive. I'm friends with a couple of gay guys and they frequently use 'gay' or 'bent' as a negative term (i.e. "the gig got cancelled? aww, that's bent"), are they wrong to do so? I don't think so. using the word in this context gives it an entirely different meaning, same as *badgeress*, sick (meaning good), "as *insert adjective* as *fruitcage*" (which makes absolutely no sense taken literally) or a multitude of other words. using stunt's logic the RSPCA should be campaigning to stop people using the word '*badgeress*' as an insult as it gives a negative image of female dogs. frankly i think that if people aren't willing to look beyond a single definition of a word when it's CLEARLY not being used in a derogatory or offensive manner then that's not my problem. also quite spot on. i'm not going to go on the typical PC rant, as to be honest i do agree with politcal correctness in the sense that you should be polite and considerate to others. What i don't agree with is needlessly labeling words as flat out offensive. i don't think there's any word in the english language that will always be genuinely offensive regardless of context, so why act as though they are? the message behind it is what is or isn't offensive, not the word.

    not sure if that's a snide dig or a jovial remark. which kind of brings me onto my rant, people are far too easily offended. i was listening to the radio a while ago and they were talking about whether the slang for negro (not gonna type it for fear of modwrath in case there isn't a filter in place) should be acceptable dependent on skin colour, i.e. it's fine for black people to say it. frankly i think this is ridiculous, skin colour shouldn't have anything to do with it whether a word is offensive should be entirely contextual. i find it odd how it's generally far more acceptable for a black person to say 'honky' or 'cracker', regardless of context. if i was black and someone said 'the N word' in a clearly non offensive context then i would have no reason to be offended, obviously if it's being used in a derogatory manner then that's different as it's clear that you're being looked down on because of skin colour. the same goes for any word, if someone called me a 'c u next tuesday' whether i'm offended would depend entirely on the context and how it was said. a similar situation would be people that say calling something 'gay' in a negative manner is being homophobic. it's not in the slightest. I'm all for same sex couples, what other people do with their personal lives is no concern of mine nor should it concern anyone else, however i will often say stuff along the lines of "aww, that's a bit gay". by saying this i am not saying "this situation reminds me of a homosexual male and as such i dislike it", much the same as if i called someone a *badgeress* i'm not saying "she reminds me of a female dog and female dogs are bad".

    it's not too bad apparently. my GF is pretty uneasy about large needley things, but she said it was alright. they use local anesthetic and make an inscision, after the anesthetic jab you don't feel anything. just need to try not to knock it for a few days after since it makes one hell of a bruise. and as i said, you might get lucky and not see a period for 2 whole years. on the other hand you could end up in my situation... 3 months and still going the thing is with the majority of rappers is they never seem like they're actually a nice person. i don't like the majority of rap simply because its not my thing, but the fact that the 'artists' tend to come across as arrogant, smug *albartrotheth* doesn't help

    contraceptive implant. 2 years of not worrying about pills and babies! woo! problem is it can (for a while anyway) cause irregular/extended periods as i have unfortunately discovered. oddly enough it can also have the complete opposite effect, one of her friends got the implant about a year and a half ago and hasn't had a period since no such luck here. yeah, i hate this. on a similar note i figured out why exactly i hate most rap music and rappers themselves. in essence, the typical rapper is an incredibly obnoxious toff. think about it, both have lots of money and like to let everyone know, they just go about it different ways. toffs do it subtly with snootyness and a sense of smug superiority, while rappers go "YEEEEEEEEEEEA BOIIII! CHECK OUT HOW MUCH DOLLA AND BITCHES I GOT YO!". everything they seem to do is centered around rubbing their wealth in your face.

    on a similar note my GF got the implant about 3 months ago and has been on the rag since. you know nothing of pain and torment sir... NOTHING!

    oddly enough sony's new xperia T does have a micro SD slot, as well as 16GB internal memory and a sensible form factor. in fact, apart from the underwhelming processor and rather OTT price it would fit my requirements perfectly.

    right, i know i've ranted non expandable/inadequate storage in phones before, but here it goes again. yesterday i was made aware of the existence of the LG/google nexus 4. it looks like an incredible phone, it's got a snapdragon S4 pro chip (if im not mistaken the most powerful SOC currently available), a nice screen (a little too large for my liking, but hey i can learn to live with that if it means i can have an S4 pro), looks nicer than the SGS3, comes with android 4.2 out of the box and i can get one with 16GB internal storage for under £300 sim free! but wait... where's the micro SD slot? or the 32GB version? or the 64GB version? surely google/LG aren't releasing a HD superphone with a bleeding edge processor and expect 16GB to suffice? oh... they are. dear google, choke on a bag of *rickrolls*! with more and more HD content available and with the big mobile games getting bigger and flashier, 16GB is not enough! hell, personally i'd say 32GB isn't enough. if you make the options available then everyone is happy. chantelle at the hairdressers can have the 8GB model which is perfect for her requirements of Facebook, twitter and duck face photos. but what about people like me who want to fill their phones with music, games and video? you know, people who want to use the phone as the multimedia powerhouse that it should be? i refuse to make do with 16GB of storage, so congrats google you've lost yourself a buyer. FFS, just whack a micro SD slot in it! chantelle will buy it and make do with the internal storage, i'd buy it and stick a 64GB SDXC in it. ta-daaa! you'd have successfully sold 2 phones instead of just 1. better yet (from google's perspective) stick to non expandable storage but release a greater range. i'd happily pay another £100+ for a phone with a decent amount of storage. so you'd have been able to sell 2 phones and make extra profit on the 64GB model. it'd be a win-win situation!

    how about something like this? http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/290812266305?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&cbt=y or http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/390342544901?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&cbt=y they're quite minimalistic for tacticool handguards IMO.

    i ordered something else from 'murrka that was dispatched the next day and it arrived about a week earlier, not sure what happened there. oh, it arrived yesterday... with a grey and white bit of card telling me i owe HMRC £16.48. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    i ordered something from 'murrka a while back, it was dispatched on the 17th last month and still isn't here. most frustrating is the fact that USPS' supposed tracking system isn't a tracking system. the only info it has given me is the date it was accepted and 'electronic shipping info received'. now, according to the internets this is the only info i will get until the item arrives... IF it arrives seriously, what is the point in having a tracking system that doesn't track!?

    you're assuming an awful lot there pal. none of it is true. the fact of the matter is you seem to think it's acceptable to respond to other people's misdeeds with criminal damage. you. are. wrong. there's very few situations where i would sink to that level. i regard people with your attitude little higher than people who attack or torture animals. both are just bitter, twisted individuals who don't have the balls to take up their issues with something that can argue or fight back. jesus christ, it's not even an equal reaction. if you were knocked off your bike, or your bike was somehow damaged and the guy showed no regret, remorse or consideration that'd be a bit different. but for not giving you quite as much space for undertaking as you might have liked? bang out of order! that's like the nutters that think that someone saying something about their mum warrants a stabbing. if someone's driving is annoying you then tell them. let them know how *fruitcage* useless they are. make them know what they are doing wrong and make them feel stupid. doesn't have to be calm and collected, go absolutely ballistic if you like... as long as you make them know they are in the wrong. odds are if they didnt realise what they were doing in the first place they still won't after you've taken their wing mirror off, and even if they do they won't think it's a fair retort. as far as they're concerned they are the victim of an unprovoked attack from just another *Ubar* of a cyclist, thus fuelling their hatred causing them to act like more of a twat towards you, which in turn fuels your ridiculous vigilante vendetta. apologies if all this came off as a personal attack, but frankly i despise this sort of unconstructive, militant attitude.

    then you my friend, are a massive, steaming *Ubar*. if you've got that much of a problem with someone take it up with them directly, don't vandalise their hard earned property and run away. if you absent mindedly blocked a supermarket aisle that i was trying to get through my automatic reaction would not be to find your house and throw a brick through the window. how *fruitcage* fair does that sound!? people with your attitude make me sick.

    do cyclists not have any spatial awareness then? if you can't fit through a gap, don't try to! that's what everyone else has to do. if i'm driving down a narrow lane and another car is approaching i'll act cautiously and usually look for a spot to pull over to let the other car by. much of this is down to my desire to preserve the integrity of my paintwork... which is a worry that cyclists do not have, and therefore rarely seem to take into consideration. i'm not saying that all cyclists are evil, nor am i saying that all motorists are saints

    sure it's irrelevant, but that's the way it goes with car insurance as well. say you'd had your car resprayed a different colour, you didnt declare it, and you wrap it round a tree. could that have been caused by the shiny new paintjob? no. would the insurance pay out? no. it's by no means fair, but that's the way it is. they will look for any excuse they can not to pay out.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    IIRC he'd routed it and as such voided the insurance. TBH it didn't surprise me, it's little different to driving a car with undeclared mods at the end of the day.
