Cruel School
When my Gran was in school at the beginning of the last century she was left handed and she was hit on left hand if she tried to use it to write.

This is unreasonable, irrational and cruel but seems only in the service of conformity. And yet schools still still practise many forms of coercion and unjustified...

So, Donald, where are the lawsuits?
The time has come for me to change my sig. However, my existing/previous sig is still relevant.



During the US election campaign, Donald Trump was plagued by accusations of sexual harassment from several women. In response, he said that he would sue those women.



OK, so the election is over, long since....

This is unreasonable, irrational and cruel but seems only in the service of conformity. And yet schools still still practise many forms of coercion and unjustified pressure to conform.

In this article: https://www.theguardian.com/society/...me-john-harris

It mentions this

"The teacher called Adams to the front of the class. “I went up, gave it to him, he held it up in front of the class, and then he tore it up. He said, ‘He’s spelled his name wrong – he’ll never be anything.’”

What is going on here?

MOMENTOUS week. A week when we tell the European Union to go away. I never thought I would see it but it is happening. Everyone who voted out is to be congratulated.
I feel so strongly about it I hope the EU fails completely, it is nothing more than corruption at the highest level.

European Union? We did not enter that, we entered the Common Market. Politicians did the damage....as they do.

Legislation on this shit will make them more inquisitive. Children already know much worse shit than this.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thousands of videos on YouTube look like versions of popular cartoons but contain disturbing and inappropriate content not suitable for children.
If you're not paying much attention, it might look like an ordinary video featuring Peppa Pig, the cheeky porcine star of her own animated series. But soon after pressing play on this particular YouTube clip, the plot turns dark. A dentist with a huge syringe appears. Peppa's teeth get pulled out. Distressed crying can be heard on the soundtrack.

THE British class system has been broken down to two types of people, those who say ketchup and those who say red sauce.

Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that people earning under £40,000 a year all call it red sauce whilst those in the higher income bracket, without exception, say ketchup.

Professor Henry Brubaker said: “For example, the Queen would call it ketchup and the commoner who’s married to her grandson would call it red sauce.

“Roger Waters, ketchup. Anyone who won X Factor in the last 5 years, red sauce.”

If you added up all the ages of my siblings and mum and dad and obtained the total number of years we've been alive then subtracted that number of years from now 2017, you'd go back to the year 1138. The year Saladin was born.
