The weekend post
I've noticed that, except me, most of you don't post too much at weekends.
I don't want to know the reason for.

So, this is the thread with a new concept of subject. It doesn't have a defined subject but a defined time lag.
You can post whatever subject you want but only at "leisure time", at the weekend.

Post modernism arrived at DnD. New experimentations for meta - forums.
I hope this thread to be a total failure.
A matter of attitude.

Yes a positive mention OakdaleFTL.

Have had my red poppy on for the last few days and watch the annual ceremony on Saturday 11th re my tv with the Royals and political leaders etc at the military occasion in the Albert Hall. On Sunday will be at Glasgow' George Square for the memorial service and ceremonial next the cenotaph. The military will be there too. Quite right to mention the remembrance.

Didn't you get your free flu vaccine injection on time? (I never get it no matter how much they campaign for it.)

In Great Britain pensioners get the flue vaccine for nothing.

Indeed, the immune system of Europe has failed... There is a gulf between intellect and rationality that must be bridged: By what, all you wise and seasoned non-Americans? :)

Since the immune system of Belfrager failed (temporarily), the immune system of Europe has failed (permanently). Good one!

This one is even better :up:

Good to hear you are feeling better although the drink thought doesn't appeal to me as I am teetotal but anyway glad things have got better for you.

Nor has a Howie been known for such -- at least for a hundred years... :)

You frequently and repeatedly abuse my nation. I ask you again, what did we do to you? (Besides saving you twice from the Huns...) Was it the mad King George that couldn't manage a rag-tag army across the Atlantic, all British and mostly Scots? (Oh, and some Huns!) You're still mad that we won our independence -- whereas you never have? :)
I very much like the term "devolution"... as contrasted with "evolution".

You call me "home monk"... Why? Because I don't uselessly spend money to visit a dying civilization before it's gone? (That's what archeology is for; I've been trained for it.)
What will you do when your oil money runs out? :) You and the Saudis are in the same boat. Of course, you'd like more socialism; Venezuela is the model you'd follow?
Ah, what do you care: You'll be dead soon and have no stake in the world carrying on.
I get out and about quite a bit; I talk to anyone who'd talk, because I like talking -- and I like talking to people. (I'll talk to dogs and cats and children, and Scots of your ilk.)
You are a mean man, RJ. But your intellect -as shown by your posts- is obviously deficient. So, you're mean because you're stupid. Is that what you'd have your nation known for?
What about Adam Smith, Ricardo, Burke, Hume? (Have you heard of them? :) )

Dear OakdaleFTL, you can call me all the silly you want as an excuse to get aay from the so obvious failings over there. A wee reminder if the farce your place actually is!

Narking at King George 3rd when we were 3,000 miles away at the revolution facre. The outcome of that event was the upper class control by you own money people.

-How much longer to get slavery scrapped in the wonderful US of A? It's founders were slave owners.
Black people had no chance of being equal to whites and right into the 1960's they were still getting attacked, murdered and denied rights.
-In WW2 black and white solders kept apart and white ones shocked that when stationed here that local girls danced with backs yet we supposed to be fighting racist Nazis.
- In-between the 2 World wars the US had hundreds of thousands in the Ku Klux Klan. They ran city councils, police and corrupt stuff.
- Wide spread corruption in the country, big crime bosses and corruption across the nation.
- Over 2 million people in jail (mostly black).
- Over 41 million on food stamps.
- Elections are like get togethers for child mentality. Waving placards and shouting and whooping like the same infantile corner.-
 Rabbiting on that Russia influenced a general election  (something America has done elsewhere for decades). No proof just juvenile nonsense.- 2 main corporate parties make sure ths system is carved up and more and more further down the society getting frustrated and s on.
- Spending half the world's military bill so that the corporates can make money elsewhere and passingly too in armaments.
- Nationalist mad. Flags everywhere except in the toilets The claim is patriotism which is daft and over the damn top.
- Great place for Mafia minds.
- More black people who are unarmed shot dead by what passes for police.

Just some of the very obvious failings since that revolution in a country that claims so much in a constitution, "principles" an so on yet the practical history is as obvious as a proverbial nose of a face. Call me all the names you like dear man but the hard truth is something you do a dance on and hide behind trying to sort me out! Ha ha. Thanks for the laugh!

I'm saying they were Scots... I was wondering if RJ knew.

I'm slightly surprised that Poland is in favor of abolishing DST, seeing how Central European time was practically invented for them. Only the easternmost edge of Poland falls in UTC+2. Over here we're at UTC, meaning even winter time puts us one hour[1] ahead of solar time. Estonia and Finland are in somewhat similar positions, over half an hour ahead of solar time.

Anyway, we (Benelux, France, Spain) are affected worse since we're already living in perpetual DST. Where can I find out who voted for and against this @$#@#$ WW1 fossil?

Timezone is a different thing than having to turn the clock. Nobody wants to turn the clock. Who invented this turning the clock anyway? It must have been the French :furious:
