Daily Chat 18/07/09


Not a good date for the Romans, today. In 390 BC, the Gauls defeated them in the Battle of Allia and the Great Fire began in AD 64. The cornerstone for the Giotto-designed campanile of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence was laid in 1334. Mein Kampf was published in 1925 and in 1976, Nadia Comaneci became the first person to be awarded a 10 in Olympic gymnastics. Celebrating birthdays today: Nelson Mandela, John Glenn, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Martha Reeves and Nick Faldo. It's Constitution Day in Uruguay.

  1. I just passed the citizenship test.

    (Lap of Honour....Chucks shirt into screaming crowd...I'll sit down later and write my official acceptance speech)

    andysays

    Re. Getting banned for dodgy monikers.
    I lasted about 25 minutes and precisely 2 posts as 'cuntface' the other day..no premod, no warning..just a total ban.

    afishcalledmonkey's time was up last night too. Only saying this because I hope they wipe the comments. They'd already deleted all the best stuff.

    Looking at what's left is a bit depressing: like looking back on Gazza's career and selectively removing his 10 or 15 best games. All you're left with is a fat, self-obsessed, screwed-up, drunken Geordie wife beater who's forever bursting into tears...but at least he's got Tourettes..there's always a silver lining.

    I think I'll give this citizenship test a whirl - see whether I'm a fit person to live here - if not will just have to deport myself I suppose.

  4. This citizenship test thing sounds dodgy to me - d'yer think UT folk who fail it will end up banned from the UK as well as CiF?!

  10. Just done a couple of practice tests - passed one (just) but they still recommend I buy their product to be on the safe side - the other I failed - so that's me fucked, probably.

    At the moment I'm busy packing shoes and wondering what outfits to pack....

    Back on Monday.

    I'd like to live in Paris for about six months. Nearly chose the French capital above Brussels years ago but then everyone I knew who did live in Paris (including quite a few French) came over to Brussels because it was easier re accommodation (and calmer).

    Good weekend all....

    ReplyDelete
  20. Morning, O untrusted and allegedly sulking ones.

    Sulking ffs. Silly sausage.

    I still haven't attempted the citizenship test because I know it will be an epic fail. I am far too much of an internationalist to know enough detail of this tiny pocket of alleged civilisation on an outcrop of rock in the North Atlantic. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  21. BB: I think Britain’s position as a (relatively) tiny outcrop of rock off the coast of mainland Europe has contributed significantly to us being the place we are today, for good and ill.

    Most of the people who live here are descended from a mixed up bunch of those who arrived on a variety of foraging, fighting and fucking expeditions, at a variety of times, and I think we’re all the better for it.

    That's what makes us British, not knowing the answers to a load of bullshit questions.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Precisely, andy.

    Mongrels are always more intelligent and more sturdy than pure-breeds. That is, and will continue to be, our saving grace.

    All the "English racial purity" nutters (in fact, I am pretty convinced it is just one nutter with a variety of nicks)that crop up on CiF just don't seem to get it, really, do they?

    ReplyDelete
  23. BB: a bit of cultural miscegenation doesn’t do any harm either, does it?

    Feel free to use my 3Fs argument in any future altercation you have with the nutters :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I do so love BB

    Should I be about to be deported because of my failed test I shall instruct her immediately.

    ".......this tiny pocket of alleged civilisation on an outcrop..........." falls so sweetly from her cultured lips.

    I see only ".........crumbling racket of pretended civility on an (otherwise green and pleasant) blue
    place somewhere to the right of Eire....."

    She does it so much finer than I do - it's so obvious why she wins at law and I never could.

    That really is a a long winded way of saying - morning dear friend BB.

    Mungo survived the night and I think he read my comment about the singing and dancing of the whales that I heard in Sheff's pipe man's music. He's spent the last few hours blowing air like a big blue.

    That really is one pretentious dog I have.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hehehe

    Morning Deano. Glad to hear he is bearing up, poor thing.

    By the way - I always meant to ask. Does "Mungo" come from the cartoon dog "Mary, Mungo and Midge" by any chance?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I know not my dear friend. He came from the dogs home with his name.

    I had intended to call him Sol - after the winter solstice on which he came to me. When I tried "......good boy ...........great dog...........SOL"

    He jsut farted at me and I thought it's Mungo.

    ReplyDelete
  27. BB: you’re showing your age!

    I remember Mary, Mungo and Midge too. I particularly liked the bit where Midge stood on Mungo’s nose to press the button in the lift. Happened every episode without fail.

    Deano: hope your Mungo’s nose is better now.

  30. Don't start the bastard on about mice.

    When I deported (rehoused) a mum and three field mice from my car a week or more ago ( I made a brief report of the event here on UT) Mungo was not best pleased.

    He took it very personally - as though I was somehow specially responsible for the loss of ones he had cared about.

    The bastard turned his back on me and would not respond to my civil affection for more than 36 hours.

    A dog with an affection for mice is not altogether together.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Awww...I remember your heartless eviction - slum-landlord style - of those little mice. Mungo is just the local street (field?) lawyer standing up for their rights! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh BB - you delightful young miss

    Do not speak of lawyers when the bastard is around - he can read.

    As I try to shield this screen from his prying eyes I see that bastard preening himself - ...the horsehair would like fine on me.... methinks. He does have a special strut that I have seen him practising.

    Giz a break - I'm entitled to dignity and life without a lawyer dog.

    Hope you have a fine W/End I must be away to attend a walk.

  33. I noticed that Dave the hedgehog was not keeping the slugs down so I put out a beer trap.
    He drinks the beer before the slugs can get to it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. colin - drunken hedgehogs raise an interesting picture in my mind's eye.

    Me ovver arf tells a story about when he was visiting his folks in Kenya in the 70s - his dad was posted out there at the time - and drunken warthogs were a serious threat to life and limb, as well as causing massive accidents on the roads.

    They would wait for fallen fruit to ferment, then eat it and get pissed as - well - warthogs, then wander about the place wreaking havoc. If you got one in front of you with a hangover, they would take a run at your car and bugger the radiator :o)

    Do you want to kill the slugs or just intoxicate them? You could always put down salt. That'll do them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is a fucking outrage - a fucking free range hen just walked into the awning attached to my caravan and shat in my boot.

    #1. Sell out!
    2. you just don’t DO subtle do you?#

    1. You're just jealous, and...speaking as a fully accredited and qualified citizen...that's hardly surprising. I'm assuming you're stuck in some sort of concentration camp thingy for refugees who just can't cut it in the citizenship department. Well let me tell you sonny, taking the piss out of REAL citizens with an appreciation of their country's values, traditions etc. is not going to help your situation. A bit of good old fashioned deference and respect for your betters is what's probably holding you back.

    2. No...fuck subtlety...I didn't get to be a qualified citizen through any use of subtlety. I just applied my full-on Britishness to the task and passed. I'm hoping my new ID card has a union-jack smiley face or something to signal my Britishness to those concerned.

  42. Citizen Fish

    You might even get a union jack micro-chip up yer bum too if you're lucky. I hear that this is the latest way the government means to clamp down on terrorism.

    At least that way when a suicide bomber blows themselves up they will know who they were straight afterwards instead of having to look for passports that survived the conflagration, like they do in the states. ;o)

    Churchill would be proud of you.

    I am “behind the wire”, as you suggest, but I’m hoping my trench digging skills will soon be put to good use by the Escape Committee.

    BB: I heard they were going to insert a combined micro-chip/radio receiver in the skull, until they realised it would be no use under a tin foil hat...

    BTW, afishcalledmonkeysuncle’s profile and comments are still up, and still some real gems there.

  44. Colin my friend.........

    Funny you should read and consider the options so wisely -I was just thinking a similar thought.

    Some anon came on here last night and advised of the possibility that my long time hero Frank Harris was a fraud. I had always known of that possibility but had discounted it on account of the evidence to hand...

    There can be no doubt that " My Life and Loves " is a fanatastical journey through the reaches of a sexually demented soul - but what a journey.

    I know without a shadow of a doubt that had a hen shat in the boot of Frank Harris he would have turned it to his sexual advantage within the hour.

    I confess I have been rolling various alternative sentences around in my mind as a kind of practice for my next visit to a supermarket.........

    I must say that because BB's son's age and Montana's too - they are at the age of obsession with ladies, I have been giving some thought to how I should deal with a yarn about Frank.

    I am a caring responsible man and it would not be nice to wait until I have a grandson - which of course I may never have.

    We all need to understand that Frank's tale is not just about the verification of an indisputable statistical rule ( Pareto got this one right) it is also a bugle call for men/boys like myself who are not the best of looking, or who have only a normal sized member.

  47. Deano, That nice Mr Harris was what we used to call 'cunt-struck' and I agree that he would have done a quick calculation based on the relative sizes of an egg and his old fella and acted as you suggest towards the fowl.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Stoaty

    He was indeed struck as you describe - but if you have had the privilege of a read of that long banned book you will know that the fowl was just the start.

    He would thereafter have used the encounter as a delightful and altogether diversionary tale - to be told whilst he was "accidentally" removing the wrapping of his true desire whenever and were ever he could encounter it.

    Morning noon and night.

    As the late George Melley put it when he finally encountered his diminishing libido - "....oh.....thank fucking God. It's like being unchained from a lunatic"


    Thunder storms around thus my internet dongle is having intermittent success _ I can be 40 or more minutes delayed in reading responding....

    BB put it best - silly sausage. My half a cunt joke was both an acquired taste and insufficient to describe me feelings at your emergence.

    Now for the good news.

    annetan42 was alive 22 hours ago - she posted over on Guard. That's a relief she be one of my favourite posters and I had a concern that she might not be well.

    If the half b returns and folk have to depart for some time.........

    I would like to leave one note for dear Sheff:

    Just had that pipe man of yours on 5 times around the loop.

    Really really class - at about 1.something the man nods his head and then twitches in admiration of his own craft. I loved and so admired it.

    I consider it music so special that I have in it the category " to die by" which is just next draw to "me funeral stuff"

    The more I hear it and watch the vid the more I love it. I am not into boys - I had a suck of a dick when I was about 17 and it did not suit. Should I come back in several hundred years and find an offspring of mine that looked like that Davy fellow well..

    I really would be fucking chuffed - I admire those who take their art to heart.

    'If you dislike us so much..''

    No..not at all...'sympathetic' actually... but what I see here doesn't challenge the legitimacy of what happened, it just seems to reproduce it on an even smaller and more arbitrary scale.

    Why were your posting names collectively ''culled''in such a short period of time? ....It's a fair question (that was posed before) and it seems none of you seem to either know why or be concerned enough to either probe further, or to organise a more organised collective response to such ''moderation''

    This could be a lot more....

  78. Anonymous:

    Most people who come over here are immediately welcomed and, if unknown to us, given the benefit of the doubt unless they demonstrate that they’re undeserving of such (we are each capable of making our own minds up on this issue, of course).

    Anyone who bursts in, as you have done, using the mask of anonymity and accusing us all of sulking, are unlikely to be given any benefit of doubt, and if you had rather more social and self-awareness, you might realise that without it being pointed out to you.

    Also, we haven’t been collectively “culled”. Those of us who have run into trouble with the Moderating regime on CiF have done so on our own individual basis, with the result that some of us may have chosen not to post there under our original names, or to avoid sharing our pearls of wisdom with CiF at all. Again, we’ve each made our own decisions, and we all respect each others’ rights to make those decisions.

    If you’ve got anything useful, constructive or even vaguely amusing to say, I’m happy to engage with you, but on the evidence so far, I’m beginning to doubt it.

    One difference between CiF and here is that you can make whatever comment you want without being banned or even having your comments “moderated”. Most people who come here appreciate that difference and act with a degree of responsibility as a result. I hope you can learn to do that too…

    Doesn't really make sense does it?

    If there wasn't a change in the regime of ''moderation'' elsewhere, why was this place developed in the first place?

    If you all still post under your original monikers elsewhere, then what is the function of this place then?

    Some of you seem to have been involved - either directly or on the periphery - in a skirmish elsewhere, but then after much sound and fury......deflated on first impact.....

    This place was never set up as a place for "rejectees" from CiF. Its primary role was as a place to continue discussions that had lost their impetus or had had comments closed on CiF.

    It has gradually metamorphosed into a place where people congregate in a virtual space simply because they share an interest in commenting on CiF and, largely, share much the same kind of political views. That is not to say that we don't have our disagreements, but it is largely less of a flamy place than CiF can be at times.

    There is no alternative agenda. We moan about modding on here from time to time, but that is not the primary purpose of the Untrusted.

    There was a period of time when there were a large number of people who were banned from CiF, and at that time it was the central topic of discussion for a week or two. But I reiterate, that is not the primary purpose of the blog.

    I'm a bit of a hippy. Calmer waters are best for making clear headway, don't you think?

  90. I see sixxstring is back, on the Polly thread:

    "The problem with you socialists is that you believe you have a right to surreptitiously take our money away and spend it on what you want in perpetuity. IT ISN'T YOUR MONEY".

    and on the domestic violence thread:

    "Obama is a radical communist and fascist (yes, they are the same thing, its just lefties are to ashamed to admit they really do like Hitler), who believes in the primacy of government on the freedom of the individual".

    Gotta love him!

  91. Any chance you'd care to reveal your cif moniker? I presume you must have one? Or is there some specific reason to remain 'anon'? Of course, we are all anonymous to some extent, using 'monikers' both here and on cif... which makes it all the more unfathomable as to why you would, apparently, prefer to not reveal even that much of an identity...

  93. Anonymous: you seem to have a number of mistaken ideas about this place. Maybe we could help you clarify them

    But I’m with Kizbot – I prefer to have some idea who I’m talking to before I engage in a conversation.

  94. Conversation is Fatuous..... now that'll be an appropriate one don't you think?

    Sleep tight.....

  95. OMG this thread is hilarious!

    Deano sorry not been around much rather busy On Monday went shopping with daughter and was v tired for the next 3 days then I had to go shopping and collect my meds on Friday.

    This afternoon I went to see Star Trek - an amusing fast paced and escapist bit od space opera! Just what I needed! Went to friends for dinner afterwards.

    No sign of swine flu thank goodness just that sometimes my cardiomyopathy has a habit of biting me on the bum if I do too much!

    Thanks for asking though! Nice to be missed. :-)

    Kiz - a song from Hair comes to mind!

  100. Hey, "anonymous", maybe navros has just found you your new Untrusted ID.

    From now on you can all yourself "Fatuous" - you're already in character, so no great changes will be needed ;-)

  101. Hey Anne

    Is the Star Trek movie(or Car Strek as we call it in our house - ever since my lad, as a toddler, started calling it that)any good? I like a dose of Space Balls from time to time, but I heard it got mixed reviews.

    Goodnight, anon. Come back tomorrow, and you will see we are all still pretty much the same - a decent bunch of people who like having a natter about stuff.

  103. I thought it was very enjoyable, very fast paced and exeedingly well cast especially Kirk, Spock and McCoy. Its also very funny in parts.

    A pleasant way to pass a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon.

    Mind, I am a bit of a Trekkie (not enough to go on conventions though!)

  104. Sounds like something I might buy on DVD for my beloved, then. He is the biggest Trekker in the house by a long chalk.

  109. navros,

    Couldn't agree more old cock.

  110. BB,
    Thank you my dear, has your keen lawyerly mind deduced that I am not THAT anon but a far better class of twat altogether?

    ReplyDelete
  111. If its deano I am FUCKED but happy.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Class don't come into it, mistah. This is a class-free zone.

    I don't mean by that that it is a class struggle-free zone, mind you...

    And I don't personally think you are a twat. I think you are feeling the water in your own way. Some dive straight in. Some wade in up to the waist. Some test it with their toe. Some splash others first to test it... :o)

  113. navros,

    deano has said that he wont use anon again so I aint him. I am not an enemy however. Excuse my apparent coyness but I would hate it thought that I was in anyway connected to that other anon.
    Andy,
    I would defend to the serious inconvenience your right to suck anything you wanted to.

  114. Aren't anonymous people all the same?

  115. God I'm getting old.

    Time was, not so long ago either, that this time on a Saturday night, I'd be out doing this....

    Ah well. I can watch other people do it instead....

    Night night all!
