    Posted: 03 Jan 2019 at 4:15pm
I've barely been over here all year...been busy with 'real life'. A wedding (with all the trappings and parties), countless weekends away to watch football, with my teams performing creditably all year (the Aussie ones, anyhow), Melbourne for a week for GF fun (the loss was incidental, it was a winning year for Bucks and the boys), a trip to London for a special visit to the grave of the person who inspired my books (two written, one published, two more started...busy busy), a new man in my life (keeping me occupied, so I don't get into mischief...oh wait...we do!!!), promotional work for the book (thankfully all done at present), a very sick elderly mother to worry about, and endless visits to my two grandchildren (of the furry kind...thank god, no brats yet...please...)

 on the odd occasions I've popped over here, one thing has struck me...NOTHING CHANGES...

  the same culprits are still arguing with each other about the same inane subjects...

  no-one has opened their minds to even remotely understand the other side of the argument...

  this site demonstrates how brainwashing started in infancy, either by religious or political bias...

  Macca is still getting away with innuendos and outright revolting sexual jokes that would have anyone else banned...

  PT is still claiming the middle ground while his chair tilts more and more to the left...

  Dr E and his right-wing cohorts are still living under the spell of some magic fairy dust that has turned their brains to air ... "oooh, that's bad..." says their leader, the idiot Cheeto...

  no-one knows what to do with their collection of Kevin Spacey movies or The House of Cards dvd...(do we keep them hidden but watch them after everyone has gone to bed?...or do we show some gumption and trash them?...)  hmmm..."but I liked him before he was a deviate..."

  Isaac is still foraging for a reason for existence...his, at least...if he keeps posting new topics, at least there is visual proof that the missing link exists...

  poor old Whale is still copping a hiding to nothing for...nothing...maybe for being a blubberer...Confused  


  
this site was once a stimulating place to visit for some good-old-fashioned banter, discussion and the occasional piece of wit...now it is just a mine-field, waiting to trap a poor sucker and blow his brains to mush...

I have an issue with you saying PT's chair "tilts" to the left JJ. Since when is 90 degrees a "tilt" ?

 it is more than counter-balanced by the right-tilters, who have fallen off their chairs and into the msh-pit..."oooh, that's bad..." says the Cheeto...

I know what to do with my Kevin Spacey collection- exactly the same thing I would do before I knew about his alleged misdeeds. I am only interested in the art, not the artist.

But there's still some fun tit-for JJ, eg your "pinko" reference.  Are you referring to our left-wing pinkos or the Glenn McGrath cricket/cancer promos, that is the question.  Tongue

And you used the term "debating" above, whereas some of us suspect almost without saying so that  "debasing" was the word you were cleverly alluding to but not exactly spelling out.  Wink

Then again, I may be entirely misreading....Embarrassed
