So do you have Greek feet, Egyptian feet, or Square (and presumably mathematical) feet?

I'm off to bed now. Before I go - this is me in my Sad Socks from about a 6/9 months ago.

Just as long as you don't wear your socks to bed, that's all we ask.

What the actual f***

A statement from someone who has said worse (with less of a reaction) and a throwaway line in response from a known shit stirrer is really that bad, is it?

I despair, I really do ...

For some reason this entire issue makes me think of this.

The Pekes and the Pollicles, everyone knows,
Are proud and implacable passionate foes;
It is always the same, wherever one goes.
And the Pugs and the Poms, although most people say
That they do not like fighting, will often display
Every symptom of wanting to join in the fray.
And they
Bark bark bark bark
Bark bark BARK BARK
Until you can hear them all over the Park.

Now on the occasion of which I shall speak
Almost nothing had happened for nearly a week
(And that’s a long time for a Pol or a Peke).
The big Police Dog was away from his beat -
I don’t know the reason, but most people think
He’d slipped into the Bricklayer’s Arms for a drink -
And no one at all was about on the street
When a Peke and a Pollicle happened to meet.
They did not advance, or exactly retreat,
But they glared at each other and scraped their hind feet,
And started to
Bark bark bark bark
Bark bark BARK BARK
Until you could hear them all over the Park.

Now the Peke, although people may say what they please,
Is no British Dog, but a Heathen Chinese.
And so all the Pekes, when they heard the uproar,
Some came to the window, some came to the door;
There were surely a dozen, more likely a score.
And together they started to grumble and wheeye
In their huffery-snuffery Heathen Chinese.
But a terrible din is what Pollicles like,
for your Pollicle Dog is a dour Yorkshire tyke,
And his braw Scottish cousins are snappers and biters,
And every dog-jack of them notable fighters;
And so they stepped out, with their pipers in order,
Playing When the Blue Bonnets Came Over the Border.
Then the Pugs and the Poms held no longer aloof,
But some from the balcony, some from the roof,
Joined in
To the din
With a
Bark bark bark bark
Bark bark BARK BARK
Until you could hear them all over the Park.

Now when these bold heroes together assembled,
The traffic all stopped, and the Underground trembled,
And some of the neighbours were so much afraid
That they started to ring up the Fire Brigade.
When suddenly, up from a small basement flat,
Why who should stalk out but the GREAT RUMPUSCAT.
His eyes were like fireballs fearfully blazing,
He gave a great yawn, and his jaws were amazing;
And when he looked out through the bars of the area,
You never saw anything fiercer or hairier.
And what with the glare of his eyes and his yawning,
The Pekes and the Pollicles quickly took warning.
He looked at the sky and he gave a great leap -
And they every last one of them scattered like sheep.

And when the Police Dog returned to his beat,
There wasn’t a single one left in the street.

Default The Twilight Zone

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge.

This is the dimension of imagination.

It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

I'm still compiling my dossier. I have a count of six Nazis. But they make enough noise for an entire army, and try to fool others (and themselves) into thinking that they are, indeed, the majority And one mod who seems to have swallowed the philosophy of the main rabble rouser -- the sole American (WTF?) hook, line and sinker Said rabble rouser has been spouting this crap for years so I know where it's coming from Only she was a lone voice in the wilderness at the time. F*****g hilarious!

"Standard behavioral pattern. Re-appear after a long absence. Appear sickly sweet...especially to new members to gain sympathy. Then start playing the victim...usually using a third party to deflect any blame. Then when the going gets tough disappear again...until the next time"

Oh and I have the names of a few hangers on file
