  1. Requiem for the Boatman

    I think we've finally succeeded in ridding the OTF forum of a diabolical unscrupulous individual known as the Boatman. Although he did have in his possession a variety of 'nom de plumes'. Oh how he attempted to deceive us members by posting on this forum incognito and maliciously and savagely thrusting and parrying before my fellow members had the wits about them to mobilize counter measures. Oh yes we assembled a counter attack, but not before this devious fellow inflicted numerous injuries as he cut and slashed his way through the most vulnerable parts of our bodies. But we can rest easy tonight. Once again we may open our windows at night to partake of a little fresh air. We can rest peaceably for now. Tomorrow, day break will allow us to awaken to a glorious morning. The kids will once again be allowed to go outside and frolic with the other urchins, the birds will do their thing, now that the threat of the Boatman is over. Thank God that we're free! Free at last!

    He does seem to be a little like that Energizer bunny. D'ya think?

    If this post isn't the best damned endorsement for getting him back, I don't know what is...…….. and I could give you an idea about what to do with your 'thumb', but you probably already know!

    I betcha the more 'mature' Brits have experienced similar changes while growing up. Maybe millennials will discover all they've missed! https://biggeekdad.com/2015/07/here-today-gone-tomorrow/

    You're on to something, Dworkin. Nylon talks about 'pong'. And to me it was a fascinating game. And can you remember 'Dungeons and Dragons'? By today's standards, these were primitive games, but to us, they achieved a sense of wonderment from us. I can't speak for millennials, but with them being bombarded by this new technology every day, do they share the same awe that we did with our games? But a lot of other things have changed since 'back in the old days'. As a matter of fact, it's a whole nother world. I think Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky started it back in the 90's. "On August 17, 1998, President Clinton was asked whether the statement by his lawyer Robert S. Bennett to Judge Susan Webber Wright that, “there is absolutely no sex of any kind in any manner, shape or form, with President Clinton [and Monica Lewinsky]" was truthful, President Clinton replied, “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” Clinton explained that if “is” meant “never has been” that is one thing; but, if “is” meant “there is none currently” then the statement by Mr. Bennett was correct."

    You would have to work for a living, then. Could you handle it?

    Or it could be, he just had a 'bad hair' day.

    Hmm..... your typical brother-in-law.
  11. Boris Johnson burqa remarks.

    I went to that website and listened to most of what he said. I also read the comments, which ran the gambit of opinions. This is a heated debate and won't end soon. There are too many extremists that want to make it an issue.
  12. Boris Johnson burqa remarks.

    I did not say women wore the clothing due to misogynistic men. And I quite clearly stated that Muslim women could wear what they wanted to...….. except for security reasons they must be identified. When I made my condensed comment about 'social issues', you actually extrapolated it to include my condoning child labor and slavery? Take it easy on the weed. It's designed to mellow you out.

    Thank you. You're a sweetie.
  14. Boris Johnson burqa remarks.

    I could be waaaaaay wrong on this. But I betcha if each of these women were interviewed individually and info not be disclosed to their husbands, etc., not too many of them would wear this stuff. Oh, there would be a few zealots that would disagree, but not many. But you can't see that clearly. You are so caught up in your 'political correctness' stance, you can't see daylight for your obsessive liberal views. There's nothing wrong with showing compassion for others. But when a person goes bonkers in attempting to achieve some quasi self-esteem for themselves, you become dangerous to yourself and others.
