they always crop up, sorry its a part of life, like it or not. Plus the joke is as old as myself. I have no time for terrorists and people that want to kill and maim others and they only get treated with contempt and mockery from myself. In this case the Luxor Security was advised, they acted swiftly and surely, both them and the advisor deserve a medal, where the terrorist deserves nothing but a good scrape up, putting in a bag and fed to the dogs. Nothing is good enough for a terrorist at all.

This from your perspective BM and you are welcome to your opinion.

Others may feel that the real troubles in this world are caused by people not taking life seriously enough.

In my view Bennu is right, there's a time and place for everything.

I have a highly developed sense of the ridiculous and feel one should live and let live - but if the B****rd neighbour of mine who has been playing "music" for the last 4 hours or more doesn't either turn up the volume so that the whole street can join in the enjoyment - or turn down the bass so I haven't got an erratic tuneless, rhythm-less booming echoing through my house.................. I'm going to get very serious. :evil:
Smile! It confuses people

I always say, everyone should be free to do what they want, so long as they are not being an ar5eh0le about it and waving it in everyone's faces.

Often though as I have discovered in my lifetime, when people get angry or prejudice about something, there is a lesson to be learned.. Yeah, that guy could just be your common or garden A55h0le...
All Problems come with the solution built in, maybe you need to go somewhere to escape the racket and it will all be over when you get back... :ni:

Do you remember the incident with the Record Player I told you about, and my Dad smashed it up, when I was Playing Sorrow by David Bowie..

Well, a few months after that incident, and we had moved up here, my dad left us for another woman, she had Long Blonde hair and eyes of blue..

He killed himself 9 months after my Mum died of cancer... Makes you think ?


Anyway, I'm tired, time for an afternoon snooze, :yawn: I dare say my Cat will be joining me. She lies on my chest and sometimes walks in circles to find a nice spot.. Not so nice when I see her a55h0le 2 inches from my face.. =^..^=

Some of the best jokes I've ever heard have been when people are dying, by those the dying, the attendant medics and the rubberneckers, to be honest, I was known to be quite a 'card at those 'finite statements during motorway pile-ups, murders, ect It became an art-form 'amongst the emergency services some firemen were totally brill…. :cool:

Yep,bravest of the brave Who2..those firemen.
Their job is NOT to extinguish fires..their job first and foremost is to save lives.

Amongst nurses and policemen they are known as the "water fairies."

Why?Cos they "hose down"everything,destroy every shred of evidence.

But..God bless them!

Wonder why we never understand 'mad-fuc*** ?
Well here is a small translation from a 'beardy-weirdy about Karnak: ……

"And he said bouzid peanut, one month my "Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz", Through "Account on twitter": "bombing inqaser, summer incendiary waiting taghwt Egypt and then and the cross, this is just the beginning, trade tourism adultery and meat. Cheap and booze this year". And he said Abu Waleed alsynawy, from my " Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz " through his account: " this first, of a series of bombings, waiting for sisi and his soldiers, the khlaya cluster, will spread everywhere, the soldiers of Islamic State, in response to the tyranny of the army ". And Khalid said ghussein amdy, one of my " Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz " Saudis: " Process Karnak. It worked, and did not fail, Islamic State and lingers on ". In the way he said the letter of Egyptian, one month elements "Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz": "thank you God, the process of martyrdom in a karnak. Which contains the tourists Crusaders in maintaining a palace in Egypt, the beginning of level".

So, there you have it in a nutshell, why beardy-weirdies want to kill you and me, all in the name of religion or more succinctly Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz….you go figure.. :cool:

As a former next door neighbour to the Battersea dogs home I must strenuously object to the suggestion of feeding dead terrorist remains to dogs. The embedded wires, buttons and other metal bits would play havoc with their digestive systems. :stp Dogs deserve a life, a terrorist does not.

Its always strange when someone speaks highly or supports a person when they die. Why not tell them to their faces when they are alive. Sad world really.

Very true, for they are the ones that do not understand, but I know when I shed my mortal coil, there will be a smile on my face on way or another...
