Latest snowflake outrage

What about the gypsy cabs?
Our local group prefer to be known as 'gypsies' as that is the traditional label for their kind. To be honest they aren't too bad. They keep to themselves. If we need to talk to one of them we let it be known via contacts with the senior people and he'll turn up at the station with his [very expensive] brief.

Incidentally they are always sound with me as I am somewhat older than most of my colleagues and they had a cultural respect for age.

The king, or queen, direct, or an intermediary?
 
Well, ants do carry anything they find back to their nests, are always fighting and do shoddy building work then demand huge payment by intimidating pensioners* so the name fits.



* not necessarily true.
 
Morning All,
Not sure if this belongs here. From today's local 'comic'.

Essentially some universities have been taking the piss by lowering standards to an abysmal standard to essentially sell degrees to anyone willing to pay the fees get a loan to cover the fees. Colour me surprised.

Good to see them upholding their own rigorous standards by referring to Hull University and Worcester University rather than the University of Hull and University of Worcester respectively. What else would be expected from the Mail Daily?

They must be the immigrANTS...

I've added a few words.

I knew a couple of nurses back in the Eighties who preferred taking it up the Gary rather than dealing with potential side effects of contraception.
Interesting girls , they also considered BJ's as not being unfaithful
You'll be telling us next that they came from Rinteln.. on a bus... with others!!
 
Oh I see. On an unrelated matter, a friend was asking how he would delete his internet history?
Yes,

I also have a friend who said that info would be useful.

Do share.

Thread drift...

Back in the day, I was the IT expert for a small part of the navy, and people would often bring their home PCs in for a check up. This particular day, one of our chiefs (SNCO) bought his PC in because it was running slow. He was a huge guy - pushing six foot six tall and about the same across. He had also just finished his (voluntary) Foot and Mouth stint, going across the UK slaughtering cute little fluffy animals. In his spare time, he was also a gamekeeper, and was used to killing, dismembering and disposing of large deer.

Needless to say, that day was busy so I forgot. Anyway, he came back in mid-afternoon to see how it was going.

Realising I’d forgotten, I apologised and quickly wired the computer up, joking with him that he probably has a computer virus due to the amount of porn he’d downloaded. He looked surprisingly serious at that point and asked me to check if that had been the case.

Anyway, after booting up, I told him there were three places where the internet history was stored. I went to the first (browser history) and found it had been cleared. I congratulated him on his awareness of the basics.

I then went into his temporary internet folder and, sure enough, that had been purged too. I congratulated him again for his awareness whilst joking that he probably didn’t know about the third location (as few people knew about the cookie folder).

So I opened the cookie folder whilst joking that this might be the one to catch him out. And sure enough, as the folder opened, a long list of cookies appeared.

Including for “sexzoo“ and “donkeylove”. (I immediately suspected the latter wasn’t a My Little Pony appreciation site.)

So here was my dilemma; I was sat next to a huge man who was used to killing things about my size, who was looking seriously unimpressed that I had found these cookies which (I syspected) could impact his career and personal life in a rather negative way.

Luckily for me, after a few moments of looking at the list, he just politely asked me to not delete the cookies and to create him a desktop shortcut to the folder. He then explained that he and his wife had been away for three weeks, and had left the house in the care of someone else.

His daughter’s boyfriend…

I never had the courage to ask how that conversation went.

Watch all the way through...
Yes, I absolutely agree, she shouldn’t be up there.

A young girl with acute learning difficulties should not have been cynically coached and used to spout propaganda.

Greta was up there because anyone criticising her could then be attacked for ‘attacking’ a damaged child.

She didn’t get up there unilaterally. She was there because of a very slick, well-orchestrated campaign.
