Chicken or egg question.The hideous, obese poor.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I live in a working-class neighbouhood which shares a main thoroughfare with what you lot would call a council estate. I often come across entire families of mutants who look as if they were created from scetches by Rob Zombie. Hideous poverty-stricken circus-types. Now, I understand bad teeth can come from a poor diet (though the welfare- dependent have free dental care, while honest folk get fack-all), BUT there is some ugly you can't explain away.
    Which leads to my question:Are they poor because they're ugly, and therefore not afforded good employment opportunities,etc; OR are they ugly because they're the products of successive generations of scrout interbreeding?
  2. What? No-one?
  3. Pointless thread I guess FV
  4. OK............
  5. Wouldn't be the first of mine, would it?
  6. 3 or 4 generations of no work inability to cook and inability to get a decent work nots going to help
  7. Well, didnt really want to go that far but....

    I live in East Anglia. You have the cream where you live.Here, in the fen areas, the family tree is just a straight trunk!
  9. I live on the edge of a housing estate, 2 weeks ago a local Chav bird from the local chav family got stabbed outside my house (Bled all over my car, messy cow).

    I mentioned the incident to my father who said that the family were just as bad when he lived in the the late 1940's to early fifties.

    Chavness and low intelligence is obviously hereditory........
  10. As for the definition of "scrout" (which may or may not be equivalent to the Br. "scrotebag"), see Arrsepedia.
  11. Birds of a feather and all that, I suppose.

    Where I live is one of those mixed areas of working class families, young professional families (mainly immigrant) and Housing Association tenants who're largely unemployed.

    The latter category tend to look look unpleasantly like they've got potatoes in their genes somewhere. You've never seen such a bunch of malformed, lumpen sullen-looking uggos in your life. I only live there cause they make me look handsome.

    So, I agree. I think it is inbreeding that does it.
  12. I'm going with sh#t parenting here. If you equip your children with your own low expectations and standards then they will almost invariably see that as normal and will follow. Break the chain you complacent fcuks! I'm generalising of course but I'm definitely not wrong.
  13. Valid poit, St E., but I'm talking about physical ugliness and mutation so profound that the best makeover team, and a full-time Hygiene Specialist couldn't smooth it over. Like GENETIC ugliness.
  14. I take it you and your wife resemble a couple of oil paintings FV?
  15. They were in the corner shop near our place last night, buying dinner (many mega-size chocolate bars), while arguing if they had enough cash for three rather than two three-litre bottles of Spar own-brand 25p lemonade.
