1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Taking risks for yourself is fine. Imposing them on others not as much.

    Risks are imposed on you and I by others all the time. It cannot and will not ever be any different, so long as we are not the last living thing on Earth.

    Clear road from what I can see, don't really condone it but apart from himself, who is he actually hurting?, 'Cept the doddering asshole who will be plodding around in the outside lane, thumb up arse not using mirrors driving around a "safe " 40 mph, and will probably do everything in his power to get in the lads way..

    Correct. But we can choose whether to try to minimize the risk to others, or selfishly ignore the risk to others and concentrate purely on our own enjoyment. The views of some posters on this thread are staggeringly self-centered.

    Barry, shall we just discard thousands of years of civilisation and return to survival of the fittest then? Or are there some rule/laws that you think we should keep?

    Murder ok? Rape ok?

    Oh, that makes it okay then. Guns are fun too. I'll just go get tooled up then wait for school playtime.
    The lives of innocent adults and children are of no consequence compared to having FUN!!!!

    Having rules rarely makes any difference IME. There are still murders and rapes and a whole host of nasties that there are strict rules against. You are fooling yourself if you think making rules changes people's behaviour. We are what we are.

    I believe (from recollection), that the camera position makes it look a lot faster than it really was, and then the sound track of the high revving engine was added in production. Great film though.

    Nice comeback, did someone type it for you?

    Seriously, do you honestly think 'having rules rarely makes any difference'?
     
  17. barrymidd

    barrymidd Who me?

    As per my post, we have strict laws against murder, rape, theft, you name it, and yet ALL of them are on the increase.
    QED?

    Worse than a few hundred years ago?


    But how much worse would things be if murder, rape, theft, you name it, were perfectly legal?

    Do you have a sister?
     
  19. barrymidd

    barrymidd Who me?

    Do you need a rule or law to tell you not to murder or rape someone?

    No that's called morality. But you certainly do need a law to be able to convict those that do.
