General Discussion / Re: The Mother Ship
Last post by JBR - Today at 10:58:21 AM
I never visit the Mother Ship now, since I was put on a regular moderation, which meant that whatever I posted wouldn't be read by anyone for some time before some mod (presumably) decided to allow it.  That was because I dropped a few hints to Vlad about this place.  I have removed it from my 'favourites' now so I don't even have to see it!

Recently, when things were quiet here, I had a look at a forum I used to visit regularly: a 'forum for plus fifties'.  It is a lot more lively than here (and fewer games), but I found it to be too argumentative.  I might visit, and perhaps post, occasionally, but I can't say I'm happy to visit regularly.

I don't know why they can't keep sport on a sports channel. All sport not just football, there used to be a freeview one but not sure if it's still around. After all if the big matches are on BBC and ITV it's not costing to watch, then the non sporting people would not be having to lose their normal programmes ......Problem sorted.  [2090]

Quote from: Alex on Today at 08:57:11 AMI don't see why women's football has to be on TV at all ! but some people watch it, particularly young girls so I won't complain  :cool:
Do they allow transies to dress up and play in the ladies' team?
Probably a lot of the male footballers who lost to Spain will do that.  Anything for a win.

Biden now desperately trying to explain that he didn't mean by saying, "Trump should be in the bullseye", that he should be shot.

They seem to think he got into difficulty on the rough trails and slipped. Poor kid, but I still don't understand why he was walking there in the first place. He'd been at a concert with his pals so why was he walking 10 or so miles on his own......At night.  :wtf:

Quote from: GrannyMac on Today at 06:57:46 AMThe rain is peeing me off!  I can remember one summer holiday in the 1950s when we were up in Morayshire.  It rained so hard for quite a few days that the River Findhorn flooded some houses, and all the men in the hotel, including my dad, turned out to help.
It will pee me off when the Met office come out with "Hottest July on record" stories to follow their hottest May and hottest June BS. I reckon they should take their weather station back to Lidl for a refund.

There are going to be conspiracy theories galore from faked to complicity on this one. The more I read  the more incompetence appears to be there assuming there is no complicity. I have no time for the fake stories as shots were certainly fired in the general direction of Trump and there is even a photo that caught a bullet in flight (immediate cries of photoshop on that one of course and that could well be the case for a number of reasons but if it is I'd go for financial as the most likely).

Here's one that backs the incompetence angle and gives a reason
