I have never ever seen that argument regarding the issue for some of todays problems.
In other words, I think your argument may have some holes in it :lol:
No, I'm rather proud of coming up with it!
I'm serious though. That c*nt (yes, I realise that others also did similar before him, to different extents) relatively recently, altered the course of history, forever.
We can't ever know for sure but losing 75m people from living their full, lives must have had all kinds of terrible consequences for all of us, not just for them & their families/loved ones.
There must have been some very clever people, if not geniuses, that we lost in that 75m.
Shitler cursed us all.

Is there anything more annoying than getting stuck next to a group of whittering women on the train in the morning?

If it's not the incessant nattering it's the incredibly dull conversation topics.

I'm telling you, my theory is that the nattering & chattering of women, is the human analogue of cats purring.
It serves no other purpose other than making them feel happy, relaxed & contented. It's why they get upset when we don't want to indulge their constant talking.

MND & dementia are the new cancer.
Perhaps if that c*nt Adolf hadn't been the catalyst for 75m people dying in WW2, some of those people might have gone on to discover cures for those 2 things or anything else, by now. Of course, we'll never know for sure but he might well have cursed all of humanity, by his actions.
What about the reality where Hitler cured cancer?

Although not curing it, it was the Nazis that were the first to find a conclusive link between smoking and lung cancer...

Big cull at work, in the US at least, and they’ve just binned some excellent staff on an incredibly minor (and probably legally unenforceable) technicality, presumably because they were making their bosses look like the no-talent ass clowns they are. Grotty stuff.

Judges giving out very lieniiant 'punishments'. Local to me, a 15 year old girl was knocked down and killed. The driver admitted to driving through a red light. A witness statement and other evidence proved that he only started braking once the light turned red. He admitted to causing death by careless driving. His punishment? 300 hours community service and a four year driving ban.

300 hours unpaid work is nothing compared to killing someone and why only a four year ban? He should be banned for life, absolutely no question.

I don't get that. When is an accident not an accident? When someone runs a red light.

I know a lot of people will not agree with me on this but its always difficult to judge in these cases without all the facts. I think most of us are guilty at one time or another of trying to get through a set of lights before they go red. How did she get killed? Did she just walk out without looking? Did he completely mistime it thinking he could make the light and as it changed committed to going through it rather than slamming on the breaks with the consequences that can also entail? It probably was an accident, a horrible and tragic one, and why the the lenient punishment. That's no comfort to the parents of the 15 year old girl but we should always be wary about applying the law in strict black and white terms. Personally if I was him I would never drive a car again and the guilt would probably eat me up for the rest of life.

I think this is so true, EBH.
I have found myself thinking 'x' about a story & then when finding out the full details, thinking, how could I have been so wrong.
Unless you're close to a case, the rest of us tend to only get the black & white of it.
Although, some sentencing can be f*cking ridiculous, which doesn't help. Justice is not always full.

"Woke"
"OK Boomer"

And any other pathetic catchphrases that seem to be doing the rounds on Facebook.
To be fair, I am really tempted to bin the whole Social Media thing off.

My Facebook feed seems to be turning into the following running order of posts:

"Baby photo"
"Pointless Text over Posing Selfie"
"Irrelevant Advert" (Why do I care about a Pub re-opening in York when I live 150 miles away?)
"Meme"
"Cat Video"
"Some **** donated to some ****'s fundraiser"
"Irrelevant Advert"
"Baby Photo"
"Something mildly interesting and informative"
"Meme"
"Baby Photo"
"Animal Photo"
"Some **** is interested in some ****ing event"
"Irrelevant Advert"

I don't know what age you are AnthraxDave but FB gets better as you get older.

Interspersed between the cat, baby, and holiday photos you get messages of "We are there for you hon", when someone rants about their divorce and their dick head ex husband. And endless pictures of food that doesn't even look particularly appetizing and then you get someones forthright view on politics, labouring a point they made months ago.

I gave up FB about 7 years ago and never miss it.

I'm part of a few different right and left wing groups on faceache.

There's a leftie one about social justice, about what is going too far and what isn't.

I stuck something on there a few days back that was a crop of some SJW tweeting about the film 1917, and the issue with the film being not that they don't have enough women in the trenches in the film, but effectively that the film shouldn't even have been made because there's been too many war films about the front lines etc, and not enough films about women in war.

Bugger me, the place nearly exploded. The comment responses are into the hundreds. I've had people responding literally telling me to f*** off. :lol:

Sorry to hear that about work but separately, good to see you back!

Samba - wittering women is indeed an irritant. I had to endure a couple of women at work yesterday trying to outdo each other in the doom and gloom stakes. I rang one from a mobile phone to shut them up and then repeated it whenever they started again.
