Re: Friends with benefits.

I have three friends who have been through divorces in their late 40’s or early 50’s recently. They all wanted someone with whom they could have a friendship and physical relationship without any real emotional attachment as the divorce has left them unwilling to make any commitment with someone new...

Re: free oranges

Hey Chas, if you have too many why not squeeze them for the juice and freeze it. It’s delicious and will keep indefinitely in the freezer.

Re: What is a feminist ?

I have no issue with feminists, female or male (though you don’t find many men actually advocating women’s rights). I believe there should be equal treatment of the sexes wherever it is feasible. What irks me is when any vocal group of activists (not only feminists) starts pushing for preferential t...

Re: Now's the time !

Everyone knows that any divorce eventually becomes bitter and vengeful, takes far longer than needed to negotiate and only benefits the lawyers at the end of the day. For Brexit, it seems that the EU wants a upfront gross payment from Britain somewhere between €50 billion and €110 billion. This woul...

It’s the same plumbing for all marsupials, but commonly misunderstood. They only have one vaginal opening that splits internally into three tubes.

Re: Emergency plumber plse

Good idea Chris, but someone needing a plumber probably wouldn’t find it here in General Chat. Would it be an idea to have a sticky thread called Useful Numbers in the Members Advice section where we could put contact numbers for the various tradespeople we find that others might need in the future?...

Re: What is an accepted term.....

I think Paul has a good point. Having two doctors agree would provide some level of safeguard against possible abuse. There has to be a way that suffering can be relieved while protecting against some of the issues that it raises. Though I don’t accept the “first step on a slippery slope” argument. ...

Re: Caution - Feminists at work !

Selly, good morning, all research on the subject of male homosexuality is very grey indeed. For each study leaning one way you can find another shooting it down in flames. That’s the case with so much research. There is little black and white. I was simply taking issue with the statement that there...

Re: Caution - Feminists at work !

There's no medical evidence that says Gay men are born Gay. Actually there is scientific evidence that points to a biological origin for sexuality. Evidence from research groups studying twins indicates genetic factors explain about 25-30% of the differences between people in sexual orientation. Th...

Shouldn’t that be de-evolve (or whatever the opposite of evolve is)? :wink:

Re: Texas Church Shooting

To be fair Marian, it wasn’t KoK’s statement. He was quoting “an american nutjob” who said this on TV. The statistics bear out what we all really know- that the US has the biggest gun problem in the world by a country mile. But the US gun lobby believes that if you tell a lie often enough and loud e...

Re: Texas Church Shooting

Marian, the actual numbers show just under 33,000 gun deaths per year in the US and just under 7,000 per year in the EU.
These numbers include suicides, which make up a large proportion of the totals (66%in the US and 75% in the EU).

Re: Texas Church Shooting

Interesting comment... how does that stat work sizewise? Europe vs. America? Geographically or population? Marian Talk about bending statistics! The only way this works is if you look at shooting deaths per 100 guns. Then it is true that Europe has a worse problem than the US. Using that logic we c...

Re: Impeach Donald Trump.

I don’t agree with getting involved in the politics of another democracy. I think we have enough problems of our own that we should get to grips with first. How would we feel if we got a petition full of US signatures? My bet is we would tell them to mind their own bloody business.
