  1. And we have our first named storm of the season. Welcome, Andrea! https://www.nhc.noaa.gov
  2. Good luck lightninglover. Best advice I can give you, is give it your best shot first time but don't pin everything on it. Try not to overthink the questions, trust yourself and be smart about it. Do the mark heavy questions first. But remember it's not your only shot, you can always retake if need be. Neither are they the be all and end all. Grades are obviously helpful, but what will prove most important is your determinant and hard work. You've got this!
  3. Really wish it would warm up. The last Bank Holiday was such a tease. My seedlings need to be out but it's too cold. My bones need the heat.
  4. First disturbance of the year has appeared. Nothing predicted to come of it but suggests things are waking up. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov
  5. I've killed my Basil by planting out to early. My tomatoes and peppers are still indoors as it's just too cold for them, especially at night. Potatoes on the other hand are loving it.
  6. Hard to believe 40mph gusts will be with us tomorrow.
  7. Going back to work after a Bank Holiday weekend is just the best, isn't it? 😫

  8. Absolutely loving the weather. Spent the day at Bodiam Castle. Glorious!
  9. Well I think April weather is well and truly living up to its reputation.
  10. Hail shower here. Cat has come indoors covered in pellets. He is not amused.

    But you see again, these recent examples are a few people kicking up a fuss. It's not an entire generation or even significant numbers of people. It really does give a skewed impression of outrage.
  12. Yep in large pots as well as the tomatoes.
  13. That's what I decided in the end. Got a little collection of seedlings going indoors at the moment.
  14. Lying in bed listening to the rain. Glorious.
  15. Cold and grey. It's boring, it's too cold to enjoy the outdoors and it's depressing.
  16. Hailing! Definitely been more convective of late.
  17. Looks like it's due to drop into single figure day time temps next week. Boo! After the lovely weather we've had it will be quite noticeable!

    I'm not sure how any of that was related to what you quoted? But what parameters are we using here? People have given you examples of various points throughout this thread and you've generally answered by saying that example wasn't very good or wasnt funny or whatever so isn't evidence. You are judging evidence but your own opinion. What I am asking is what MEASUREABLE, statistical FACTS, would you accept. Evidence is fact, not opinion. I didn't say you were lying, but you do keep assuming people who were not born at your time have no comprehension of things.

    You didn't answer my question. And you're still making massive assumptions.

    See, this is where I think people confuse being liberal with censorship. My belief is that nothing should be censored unless it's actually criminal e.g inciting terrorism. Jim Davidson, I find disgusting. To me his comedy isn't about being funny, it's about maliciously mocking people different to him for a laugh. Michael McIntyre for example (I know some find him unfunny but I'm using him as an example), does poke fun at others, but it's done in a lighthearted way and also pokes fun at himself. There's no malice in it. Do I think they should both be allowed to perform? Absolutely. That is freedom of expression. But I also believe people have the right to call out people they feel are offensive. Now some who call themselves liberal would see any humour they take offence at or could be offensive to others banned. This is not being liberal, this is actually being conservative by silencing things you do not agree with. So in that regard shows that are perhaps seen as being offensive now should be shown and people should understand the attitude at the time and they can not watch it if they feel it's not OK to them. People tend to vote with their feet.

    Oh I didn't know that! It's always a line I'm not sure on. Do we just accept that these programmes were made at a different time and not censor them but understand they don't neccessarily reflect attitudes today? But where do you draw the line? What's acceptable and what's not?

    I think if that were true they wouldn't be showing it at all, but they are. I do feel that sometimes people confuse being liberal with not being able to say whatever they want without criticism.

    Mushy, what specific evidence would make you consider that your opinion may not be so accurate after all. Not neccessarily change your mind, but would make you consider that millennials are creating like previous generations?

    Imagine how, say, the Tudor age would think of us. We'd all be a blizzard of snowflakes. Prison for theft? You bunch of absolute wet lettuces, beheading without trial is the only way to deal with crime!
