Ah he's alright, he's quite helpful if you need pointers on things in the Middle East.

We're all quite rude here, in fact, I've got to be top-10 at times.

You in the UAE or elsewhere in this dump of a region?

Suppose we can all be rude at times but there was no need to read and comment if u don't give a shit! Pointless- my guess maybe a sore loser!

I am in the UAE- abu dhabi and yourself?

Other than Barnsley and Corby, I reckon Rotherham is one of the ugliest towns I have ever visited. Does it have any redeeming features?

Actually I'm surprised you only got one negative response. First post on here, and I dare say many would read it as "I'm better than you". Perhaps many gave you the benefit of the doubt. Or couldn't give a toss.

I'm gutted that The Shrimpers didn't make it through the playoffs. Not surprised, just gutted.

Anyway, welcome

Pride is an inwardly directed emotion that carries two common meanings. With a negative connotation, pride refers to an inflated sense of one's personal status or accomplishments, often used synonymously with hubris. With a positive connotation, pride refers to a satisfied sense of attachment toward one's own or another's choices and actions, or toward a whole group of people, and is a product of praise, independent self-reflection, or a fulfilled feeling of belonging. Philosophers and social psychologists have noted that pride is a complex secondary emotion which requires the development of a sense of self and the mastery of relevant conceptual distinctions (e.g., that pride is distinct from happiness and joy) through language-based interaction with others. Some social psychologists identify it as linked to a signal of high social status. In contrast pride could also be defined as a disagreement with the truth. One definition of pride in the first sense comes from St. Augustine: "the love of one's own excellence". In this sense, the opposite of pride is either humility or guilt; the latter in particular being a sense of one's own failure in contrast to Augustine's notion of excellence.
