Calling a group the real people is just plain nasty. Everyone is people and everyone has a right to think as they do.

And Like I already said. Anyone talking of apocalyptic consequences has already lost the argument on either side.
tell that to the fascist left, they like nothing better than shutting down opposing views and ideas.
So you are saying it's ok for you to act like an asshole because other do? How about setting an example?

What about the fascist right? The fringes at either side are morons. Why do you want to use their actions as a life guide, can you not think for yourself?

I'll now only reply if you can form a coherent argument without resorting to the same old poitnless tactics that get noone nowhere.

Grrr eBay.

So I order an item from a seller, it does not turn up. Contact seller they send a replacement that has turned up damaged due to poor packing. I contact the seller again, he goes on and on about how he has lost money hand has sent out lots of these in the post and they have never turned up damaged. Its not my fault he is sending stuff untracked and poorly packaged. He is insinuating that I got the first item and I am now trying to get my money back. Not a happy man

open an ebay claim, they always side with the buyer and he knows it. He is hoping by spinning his sob story that he will get off the hook.

It's exactly the same as when Cadburys or Mars re-shape their bars and give them a "new" image when really, they've reduced the weight so you get less for your money. It's a bummer but ultimately, the price will go up if it stays the same due to rising cost of chocolate.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Thing is it won't be long till it goes up in price anyway so the consumer gets stiffed both ways.

I agree, but I'd class trump in the same bracket as that, just on the opposite side of the political spectrum. The zeitgeist is for easy soundbites, I think a lot of people that voted for Brexit and Trump are going to be disappointed in 4 years time as both will have so many compromises the promises Farage, Gove, BJ and Trump made won't be anywhere near reality. The 'new politics' will be a flash in the pan once people realise it delivers no better than the previous style.

People that either don't read signs or think it doesn't apply to them.

My sons school has a big sign saying no riding bikes, scooters etc... on school grounds.

Came out of the school gate to nearly be knocked down by a mum on a bike who quite happily rode into school swerving around parents and young kids.

(realises this is a stealth cyclist one again)

HGVs that park on cycle paths that are next to a 1 lane busy road and near side streets that are perfect for it


Planning big costume builds, then realising I dont have the space at mine or at my mums to make them

Ok so no Godzilla (7ft) costume

amazon logistics because i ordered a bunch of items on friday- some stuff came on sunday morning, while i was asleep, they left it with next door- great. Next parcel was supposed to arrive friday, until the crack of dawn this morning when they decide its coming today, I'm at work of course so they try to leave with a neighbour, don't know which one, they are out, now they can't decide which day its coming and can i send to a pickup location? of course not that would be way too convenient.
