^ Me? No, I'm Māori. I just thought the topic deserved at least some discussion on this forum, even if it is quite US-centric here a lot of the time. It does make me wonder how many other countries will end up in a similar predicament, since the world seems to be heading towards an economic slowdow...

Was it a flush toilet, or an outhouse? I went to a summer camp in the early 70s where we used outhouses. Yes it was flush. In the old days most suburbs used a septic tank where wastewater was collected which fed into central point collected by a truck. Nowadays everything is pumped away from indoor...

This is an interesting question. In my experience where the guy is "punching above his weight" and has a hot g/f then he's more likely to be overprotective (protecting his good fortune/asset :lol: ) But of course this means the guy's personality traits favors him being the controlling/old ...

I think it's kind of neat to see history repeat itself.


Its also very nostalgic for those of us who grew up in the 80s. I'm kind of in the ball park in terms of age with Steve and Robin in 1983.

I don’t believe in “race-specific” measures, either. There is a growing movement that a) a story should not be changed to fit in with modern representation and b) the best actor should get the role and this should not be subject to representation. As a consumer of fiction (whether TV or cinema) thi...

You young'uns have no idea what "Old-Fashioned" really means!  Why, when I was your age, we mixed our Old-Fashions with home-made hootch, 'cept we called it "Bathtub Gin" instead!  Our bathtub was on that back porch next to the firewood and the smoked bacon, which was all we eve...

Wake me up when the woke s**t is over. I would posit that robust rebuttal based on evidence is more powerful than trying to undermine those who are labelled woke. I don't dispute there are college students who buy into social justice on face value. If there's a meme, hashtag or an event they will b...

a) she liked the song and Kate Bush OR

So I assume reality is therefore made up of countless numbers of "bouncing" universes in the multiverse? How do we know if other universes experience big bangs?

However Indians in the US are a model minority and most would be too busy with career/business/study and have little time to invest in this issue and probably couldn't care less about Azaria/Apu. Yes, most Indians in the US probably don’t think about this very much. That’s not because Indians are “...

Actually east Asians, Sri Lankans and Nigerians are more education focussed than Indians.
