I saw this last night. I was beside myself. It is so, SO, SO WRONG — morally wrong — on so many fronts.
I think Pete did semi-OK, but not great. Yes, it must have been a shock (unless he got a heads-up beforehand). THIS WAS WRONG. This should never have happened. Pete, should have had a BETTER answer.
This is WRONG!
There is no way, in hell, that a 9-year old should be talking about orientation!
NO. NOPE. Not bloody right.
A 9-year old should NOT KNOW about sexual orientation.
What has happened to US.
Plus, his hormones haven’t kicked in — as yet.
He is prepubescent.
I am in shock.
His parents should be talking to Child Services. There is something WRONG here.
OK. You know what I am getting at.
This is WRONG. Bloody wrong.
9-year old. No. No. NO.
Pete, you should have DONE BETTER.
‘Vera’ (Detective Show) — Unjustifiable Bias Towards Interracial Couples Is Starting To Ruin The Show!
We (and by that I mean all of us in the household) LOVE the show. ‘Vera’ has become one of our FAVORITE British shows. Just do a quick search (here) for my rave blog posts.
The show has always made a point of showing a varied cast — with non-whites in every episode. That is GOOD. And I appreciate that MY Britain is very multiracial. Love the trouble they have gone to be inclusive.
I also have no issues whatsoever with INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS & MARRIAGES.
Let’s face it. I, literally, have SKIN in the game. Every relationship and marriage I have had has been interracial. So, I have NO problem with them. But, at the same time I do not want anyone demeaning them — and, of course, NOT taking the mickey out of them! And it has come to that with ‘Vera’ Season 10. Four episodes so far, and EVERY ONE has had an interracial couple. That is TOO MUCH. That is too in your face. I am no longer amused.
Yes, I looked up the stats. Interracial marriages, though on the rise (as it should be), still accounts for less than 10%. Way, way, way lower than in the U.S.
The show’s obsession is misplaced.
Well, this was bothering I. It genuinely was. It was getting in the way. I had to write this. SMILE.
She claims that she has been a registered Democrat for many years. IF so, she should NOT be primarying AOC — irrespective of whether you agree, 100%, with all of AOC’s politics, statements and stances. ONLY one of these two formidable females can emerge victorious from the Primary. That is a SHAME.
We need BOTH of them. That is my gripe.
The Democrats have enough problems, right now, that infighting like this — which results in ELIMINATION.
Ah, Dear! The Democrats are SCREWED.
I hope she will reconsider this decision.
This is SO, SO distressing. I tried to contact some folks in Sri Lanka about this after the last incident. Nothing. They just don’t care.
I given this considerable thought. I have an explanation. Plain, dumb, stupidity.
These folks abusing the temple elephants aren’t cruel. Just mindless. Stupid. They don’t realize what they are doing. I kid you not.
In general Sri Lankans are not cerebral. I present MYSELF as exhibit #1 and in the scheme of things I am slightly above average. So, you can see the problem we face.
These folks are dumb. The elephants are more intelligent than them. I am talking about my folks, my people, my relatives. We are stupid. Please forgive us.
Sri Lanka is going to the dogs. The best thing that can happen is for China to occupy it and make it into a governed territory.
Harry Most Likely Was Born On The Wrong Side Of The Blanket, He Should Never Have Been ‘His Royal Highness’ (HRH).
Click to ENLARGE.
Yes, yes, yes, I have heard all the denials BUT my eyes don’t deceive me. When I see Harry I see his mother’s (i.e., Princess Diana’s) acknowledged boyfriend, James Hewitt. Google it. I am not the only one who believes it. Look at the above pictures. Look at him next to William. Do they look ANYTHING like each other. Just the color of the hair. Exact same color as James Hewitt.
Yes, of course, it would be very awkward for the Royal Family to admit to this — i.e., that he is illegitimate. This would have been unthinkable when he was ‘The Spare’ — i.e., replacement if something happened to his older brother. Now it doesn’t matter anymore given that his brother, William, has children of his own. The line of succession goes through them. Hence, why Harry is no longer the spare. Instead he is number 6 inline. Hence why he was already a MINOR royal before all this uncalled for fuss in 2020.
So, that is my take. I have always, narry an exception, claimed he was not of royal blood. So, I for one am glad that he will no longer have a royal title. As we Brits say: GRBR.
ASUS (US) PC Support Making False FedEx Shipping Damage Claims Using Bogus Pictures — We Have The Proof.
Original e-mail from ASUS demanding $24.75.
Final $0.00 bill once they realized that the game was up.
They are now saying that charged FedEx for the damage.
The ASUS (US) PC Support scam seems very well planned, executed, shameless and corrupt.
When they can’t get money from the customer they are making a claim against FedEx,
- Why didn’t they make the FedEx claim earlier and just tell us that FedEx was paying?
- Are they making FedEx claims even when the customer pays?
In our case we are 100% sure that there was NO Damage.
The 6-week old laptop was sent in because it was dead. Dead. Would not power up. That is what we wanted fixed.
If the case was truly damaged they could still have fixed the Windows Power Up issue and send us the laptop back — with the damage.
This scam unraveled for ASUS when I called their bluff and said “OK, so if you have pictures of our laptop being unboxed — showing damage — send it to me“. Our laptop had a lot of unique stickers on it. You can’t miss it. They realized that they had been caught out. They had NO pictures.
Our laptop was not damaged.
They making false FedEx claims as to be a crime — I would think. I, alas, can’t pursue that. Only FedEx can.
I will do my best to get FedEx to look into this. I will happily give FedEx all the evidence we have.Th….
