Stu:

 

Where are you getting the 'cursory reports' from?

 

 

Newspapers, usually, they just report that someone was found dead near the tracks, or was hit by a train, with no further details. When it is an accident there is usually at least some information about what happened or how it happened.

Actually there are many occasions the media don't get the full story until after the coroner has been involved, and that can take aaaaages...





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Comments like "it is clear to all but the most mentally challenged"

 

 

 

I could also include in all my posts"if you don't agree with me your an idiot" But I don't, as there are various reasons why other posters may not agree with me, including that I am wrong, or that the topic is opinion based.

You seem to be a little obsessed with how I express myself and maybe a bit too quick to take offense. None of my comments are aimed at you or any other individual. It is just my style of writing. Don't take it personally.

Finch: Hey guys.

Another bit of fun thread.

What's something small that really annoys you?

.......

 

When a fun thread goes off on a tangent and becomes a fiery debate among a handful of posters.





'Listen' is an anagram of 'Silent'.

And when one poster is right and doesnt see his post as his opinion and thoughts, therefore everybody else is wrong

If that happens, depending where you bought it from, they will give you the $$ difference back. I think NL do it, not sure about others.

That is a known phenomenon. The older you get, the faster time goes. If there is a god, she has a twisted sense of humour.

Im not obsessed nor offended. I like your posts. But, if you post in a manner that basically states that those who do not share your opinions is an idiot, then that is not really kosher.

 

""it is clear to all but the most mentally challenged"

 

Some posts are factual. Some are opinions. I personally would not downgrade any opponents to my opinion as mentally challenged. It would be far easier to say that if you do not agree you're an idiot. Either way its not kosher and it is an insult to those that are in fact mentally challenged.
