    right folks ..have a super smashing weekend .....

    On a recent trip to China, I bought some incredibly rare dragon scales and brought them home for my wife.

    "Ooh, they're beautiful!" she cooed in wonder. "What are they?"

    "They're dragon scales," I replied. "They're very rare."

    "What are they for?" she asked, staring at them with interest.

    "Weighing dragons," I answered.

    At least there will be one benefit from rising sea levels.

    Fewer whale strandings.

    I went to the cinema to see Will Smith's new film, Concussion.

    I recommend it.

    Immediately before you see it.

    I decided to visit a prostitute last night. For fifty pounds she said she would wear sexy lingerie and give me the treatment or for one hundred pounds i could get the "full wife experience"
    I went for the latter.
    She nipped into the bedroom and came out two minutes later with a dressing gown covered in dog hairs on and a fag in her mouth then sat on the settee eating crisps and moaned at me until i fixed the shelf in the corner.


    Officer Paddy stops two priests on a motorcycle.

    Paddy: "No helmets? What if you have an accident?"

    Priests: "Don't worry, my son. God is with us."

    Paddy: "In that case, I have to book you. Three people are not allowed on a motorcycle."

    We used to have 4 different remote controls.

    Then we got a Universal Remote.

    Now we have 5 different remote controls.

    I work as a postman.

    The pay isn't great, but anything addressed to 'Cash 4 Gold' is a good bonus.

    My mate's opened up a new chain of coffee shops in Russia.

    It's called Tsarbucks.

    I did some DIY with my step-ladder the other night.

    I never really got along with my real ladder.

    MAE Abbers,

    Internet still playing up, one minute I have phone, then no phone, then Internet, then no internet.

    Anyway I am having a fun week.( I really mean that btw) I have no idea why it feels fun but it does..... I keep feeling like great stuff is about to happen every day.

    My middle son lost his job today through no fault of his ..... He has held it for nearly a year which is a big thing for him. He is trying to be the victim over it but I reckon we can 'love' him out of it.

    Pauly racism is not about what colour YOU are or what colour your work mate is.

    If YOU think, deep down inside, that the colour/nationality of a person makes them superior or inferior to you as a human being .... That is racist.

    You may be black, white, Italian, British ....whatever.

    What you were saying about your friend at work does not constitute racism. You didn't share enough for it to be discussed on that level.

    What you shared was two workmates disagreeing about whether an actor is being childish and having a tantrum. You or she MAY have said racist statements but your story was empty nonsense.

    Whether you are white or not is irrelevant. I have met MANY racist, nonwhite people....stupidity is not restricted to white or non white skin.

    I will look see what suggestions there are from other threads you post on. This is such a complex issue Pauly, we really should gather input from many sources.

    I did not respond to this when I saw it over a week ago Pauly,........you were responding to my meltdown on the issue of racism I felt was expressed in the thread created by Ne in the meds section.

    I concluded by referring to the USA as an extremely racist country.

    I responded to what I read..

    Exactly why you would reignite this issue here, on my home thread, I will leave to the intelligent conclusion of it's members.

    Mae everybody,Kuya I don't understand your post? My coworker is married to a black man and I think that she was offended by what I said about the Oscars,I have no idea if that actor was excluded from being nominated cuz of race or if he just wasn't worthy but neither does he,I don't see color,maybe at first when I meet someone of course but I see people as people,as for my post on the steppers thread,that guy loves attention and you seem to like to stir things up I remember last time a thread on a posters belief in god and you kept on with her,I don't know why you couldn't just let her have her beliefs and be done with it? I don't know if people around the world hate the USA but I'm glad I live here,anyways enough on that,Ihope eeveryone has a great Friday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Good morning Abbers, happy Friday to all

    Waiting for the sun to arrive after this light snow moves out. Who the hell ordered more snow anyway?? I am sure it wasn't me, ha ha!!!

    Mick, 'life is like a roll of toilet paper.....'
    I will have to remember that one, LOL
    It really is a true statement & scares me just a little
    I hope your rain lets up soon because I know rabbits don't swim well (neither do chickens). Enjoy your gathering later.

    Sam, truck tires are kind of important, yes they are! Do you belong to Costco or Sam's Club? My son has been getting his car tires at Costco lately & claims they have great prices - just a thought!

    kuya, the US is full of hateful people & it can be discouraging. The crazy state of our politics has really brought out the whackos over the past year too.
    I prefer to remain positive & grateful & treat everyone with respect, regardless.

    Hello to everyone dropping by today. I will check in later.
    Have a fabulous AF day all!

    Bringing up racism ONLY on this thread is YOU stirring things up Pauly.....and I am sure every one can see that.

    I would not have brought this discussion to steppers, even though your comment was mildly irritating.

    You don't like my views on religion/race/ the US....fine.

    But don't act all innocent about your motives please.

    My comments were about a particular article and how it reflected how institutionalised the problem is in the US.

    This was not about individuals. Racism exists in every country sadly, often as a result of religion.....which is why I have issues with both I expect.

    I have no desire to extend this discussion on this forum and particularly on this thread.

    Nuff said already.
