  1. You mean me asking that you look something up in a dictionary is insulting? Instead of playing some sort of 'injured person' why not simply give me a reply. It really is quite sad when people can't take straight talk but resort to 'injured person' mode!!! Now that may be considered 'normal', these days!!
  2. Should you have access to a dictionary you wouldn't need to ask such a question. It's not what I consider to be normal, and certainly not what you consider to be normal but what IS normal! That is probably a little hard for you to understand given you had to ask the question. Do look it up though!!!!
  3. You find it hard to quantify what is normal, that is blindingly obvious. For the vast majority it is quite simple, it's not hard to define at all, unless you are stupid!
  4. Yes it was, but given you are both on the same wave length it can be safely assumed that it applies to you too. It's nice that you say "whatever normal is" Sort of sums up your confusion as to what is normal.
  5. Absolute crap! Yes I'm 'older' but the rest of your statement is just that 'crap'! As for the photos: How would I address them? What a stupid question! What do you expect, "Hello Miss-Mrs-young man-young lady"? How the hell does anyone address anyone until they meet them. Do you ,when you meet someone for the first time say "hello male" or "hello female or even "hello it"? If you simply mean what do they look like then I would say the first two look like effeminate males and the third a female with a beanie hat on but whether they are or not is immaterial, that"s what they look like. As I said a stupid question. The world hasn't changed. These abnormal people have always been around. What has changed is that stupid people try to make it 'normal'!!
  6. It took me a second but I got it!!
  7. If, by looking at me, someone couldn't tell what I am they would be blind/stupid/brainwashed by other idiots, or supporters of Starmer, or all four!!!!!!! As for putting it on a name tag, if someone needs to do that then I go back to my four points!!!
  8. Great news at last and saved me from the lunatic asylum: British Triathlon has banned transgender women from competition. Sanity is beginning to prevail. Transgender women!!!!! What fool could ever think that a man can become a woman anyway?
  9. Well hybrids at least!!!!
  10. Jesus Christ!! I'm going to end up in a lunatic asylums or a prison if I meet these people!!!
  11. So, let me get this right:If a man is serving me has a badge on that says 'his' I am to know he is a man? Likewise if a man is serving me with a badge on that says. 'her' I am to know he identifies himself as a woman. Is that right?
  12. Yes, but when you address them do you say, for example; "excuse me 'he' but can you etc etc; C'mon someone please tell what the hell it is I'm missing here?
  13. Pronouns! No not French ones but English!! I suppose though that the French will catch up!!! As it appears impossible to start anything new on this site I must apologise for putting this 'new' subject on an old post. Now I know I'm quite old fashioned in many ways. I have old fashioned views on everything ranging. from abortions, discipline, parents, this transgender/transition abomination, racism and now pronouns!! pronouns are difficult enough in French but I never thought I would be confused in English!! I understand all these issues and , as I have said, have views on them but this pronoun one beats me; I just don't get it!!!! It seems that several companies or building societies have I.D. tags on their staff which have their name as well as His/her/ them etc. What I don't understand(or get!) is; are people supposed to call these people by their name or say "excuse me him" or even say excuse Mr 'Smith him' or some other stupid term? Perhaps someone could explain to an old fashioned man?
  14. There is quite a difference between nitrous -oxide and nitrogen. One is completely inert and the other a potential killer. It wouldn't do to confuse the two!!
  15. I wouldn't put it past politicians to make Nitrogen a 'dangerous gas' but from my training days Nitrogen is inert and simply passes into and out of the lungs not causing any problem. It is used in many different applications though from fertilisers, explosives through to packaging and many others applications. Good reason I suppose to find a way to tax it!!!!!!
  16. The climate has been changing since the dawn of time. I see no reason why that should, would or will change. I don't contribute to the theories concerning change; the weirdos can believe what they like. I can only agree with factual events. I firmly believe the whole argument regarding climate change is confused by the increase in pollution, people seem to have difficulty in separating the issues. Pollution is the biggest threat to mankind, not climate change. Which brings it back rather nicely to where does all the electricity come from the 'eco mob' thinks will save the world; a switch on the wall?
  17. You seriously believe that mankind is consciously and deliberately making the planet unsuitable to live on? You surely don't believe that! Just a poor choice of words perhaps?
  18. So everything being electric will stop global warming, Is that right ?
  19. The pictures sum it up rather nicely. Some French friends of ours have an EV. and jokingly remarked that my gas guzzling 4x4 should be jettisoned for something along the lines of a matchbox on wheels and electric. I didn't rise to it as friendship is more important than pseudo eco beliefs but I wonder if people ever think of where the electricity comes from, are they really so 'blind' or stupid?
  20. The talk is always about the range of an electric car. That for me is the frustrating point. I can live with an EV but can the EV actually live with us? The pollution caused producing the components for an EV are rarely, if ever, discussed, as for the electricity, where does it come from? Do people really believe that you just plug these things in and electricity will flow without understanding where electricity comes from? Anyway, Putin is forcing a rethink on energy; Just ashamed it takes a war to wake people up!!
  21. A battery in an electric car, lets say an average Tesla, is made of 25 pounds of lithium, 60 pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds cobalt, 200 pounds of copper, and 400 pounds of aluminum, steel, and plastic ....... one thousand pounds of minerals, that had to be mined, and processed, into a battery, that stores electricity ..... generated by oil, gas, coal, or water. Can anyone imagine the size of battery required in a huge lorry!!!! I was astounded to find out that the battery in a car weighs over half a ton!!! Just how can this be a 'green' option? It's more a massive con!!!
  22. I thought you must have got that wrong!! Every month!!!! I have been in ignorance all these years believing it was twice a year they moved. I had to check it as it sounds so ridiculous, but you are right of course. Is there no end to the waste of taxpayers money? No, don't answer that!!!
  23. So the E.U. much to the delight of the 'greens' has banned new cars (with I.C.E.) being sold anywhere in the E.U. from 2035. Presumably this period will give the E.U. the time to come up with another plan for all the electricity that will be needed!! I suppose the lorries that cart the E.U. between Brussels and Strasbourg twice a year will also be converted to electricity! As the cost of this backwards and forwards is in excess of €100 million a year there won't be any saving but at least there will be zero emissions on all the trucks doing this work ( Conveniently forgetting of course the pollution regarding minerals for batteries and coal for producing electricity!!) There are going to be some wonderful electricity bills in the future!!!
  24. I wonder why stadiums and organisations don't adopt the system used by airlines where security is essential. Anyone wanting a ticket applies on line: a ticket is sent bar coded. The ticket is presented at the entrance to the stadium in the same way as at an airiport; on a reading machine. I don't know of any forged tickets getting through airport security!! Maybe I'm missing something! I'm sure someone will let me know!
  25. Darmanin has now given an 'apology' of sorts for his blatant lies and misinformation, reportedly after a rollicking from his master! It will blow over of course, these things do but will the voters remember it in a couple of weeks time? probably not! As for the scousers, you malign them!! They got around that problem without quite easily, they took the whole car!!!
