cretinbob: Great Janitor: Is that so you don't lose your shoes when...wait, what???

Yep, you got it.....


I just read that article...still don't understand why the shoe comes with a shackle. My dad also questioned me when I wanted a pair of pump up shoes, and he honestly didn't get it back then, so maybe it's the same thing with me.

/still remember those commercials where there would be a ball game and the guy wearing the pumps would pump up his shoes and suddenly become a badass.

jshine: Silly Jesus: optional: Silly Jesus: I love it when someone is speaking about prejudices and at some point during their diatribe they say something about "getting gyped" or "paddy wagon" without even realizing it. I've heard it on more than one occasion.

"_______s have been gyped out of their rights by the prejudiced members of society. The prejudiced think the only solution is to throw every ________ into the paddy wagon, and hide them away....."

Ric Romero reporting in to say that the meaning of words can change.

So they are no longer offensive? I'd missed that memo.


To most people, no, they are not. If you choose to be offended, that's your business of course. You could choose to be offended by the word "paper" -- but don't be surprised if most people find it strange.


Don't get me wrong, I think that the whole 'getting your feelings hurt because of meany words' thing is absurd...I just thought that it was funny when these people were speaking about the horrors of such things and unknowingly used other slurs due to their own ignorance.

Okay serious pet peeve time: Would the British press please stop using farking "Gyspy" interchangeably with "Traveller"? They are NOT the same farking thing, thier culture and language is completely different

Travellers are Irish, Catholic predominately, Speak "Cant" (gaelic and english and special sauce) and are about 1000 years old

the Gypsy are the Rom, a group of nomadic Indian warriors who travelled out of the Indus valley around 500 Bc and settled in Europe. They are called Gypsy in English because they were once mistaken for Egyptians. They speak "Romany" a Indo-european langauge all their own that has never been offically written down or standardized

JPSimonetti: Flakeloaf: , camping illegally on public land, unlawfully keeping other people off of the land their taxes pay for, stealing water and electricity, running around the surrounding area making jerks of themselves, stinking, littering, attracting other vermin and causing a public health nuisance...

See, those ARE criminal offenses though. Well, some of them. They can be easily proven. Why haven't they just gone in and tossed them all in jail unless they actually aren't doing anything other than the equivalent of American squatting (which is what it sounds like)? If they were actually breaking laws, ... well ... you know. American squatters have this down to an art.

I don't get this whole Gypsie thing. The wife watched that gypsie wedding show, though, and I agree that the young chicks are hot. That's what's important.

BarkingUnicorn: I do not understand British trespass law, at all. Why is it so difficult to remove intruders from one's property?


This is the law as it applies to Romany and Irish travellers FindLawUK. It all seems very reasonable, and allows for the Human Rights Act, but the problem is that the travellers are rarely reasonable. Or law-abiding. They have been allowed to behave appallingly because every time one of them is arrested they claim they are being victimised based on race - not, apparently, based on the truckload of stolen goods they are driving (without tax or insurance).

This may sound bad, but I would totally sign up as a hunter\killer to help eradicate the earth of these scummy types of "humans". They are a drain on our resources and a detriment to the welfare of our species - completely worthless. Gypsies, gang bangers, trashy types and other SPECIFIC ethnic groups need to be hunted down and shot dead like rabid animals. Honestly think about it for second, how fun and satisfying would it be able to watch these roaches scatter as you come gunning in wasting these low lifes Terminator style? The terror within their screams as they watch their people get exterminated methodically would fuel me like nothing else in life. Oh, and especially with the ones you capture; the kind of torture you could bring down upon them before you end their miserable existence would be so glorious. Truthfully, this world really needs this type of brutality to get us as a society to progress forward by eliminating these cancers unmercifully.

I dream and I visualize this one day happening. I just hope one day I can see this coming into fruition.

I suppose that was a bit racist. In context though, if you find yourself in a Spanish city plaza, while crowded, watch the gypsy kids doing the pickpocketing. You'll soon realize that the whole plaza is surrounded with gypsies. And if you are going to fight with one, you will likely have a fight with many.

In Spain racism toward the Roma (Gitanos, Gypsies) is very much alive and public. As an American who knew nothing about them, what I perceived about their culture in Southern Spain is that 1) they do not work 2) they exist on the literal fringe of society 3) they take what they can, whether it is rightly theirs or not...thievery is a large part of their "trade" if you will.

Snakeophelia: I'm completely mindboggled every time I hear of something like this. Can't wrap my head around the idea that someone stepping foot, or staying put, on land that isn't theirs is NOT a criminal offense. If it isn't, then what exactly does it mean to "own" land? Or for land to be "public" property?


You've got to remember the origin of it. By the time the U.S. got to setting up it's property laws private property was more of an established thing than when the Brits were doing it. Originally the commons were where anyone could graze. Your land was wherever you set up a house, as long as someone else wasn't there first. The history of the modern state has been how public, un-owned land has been fenced in and turned into private property.

If you really think about it, in a world where there wasn't a concept of private property it took a really big set of balls to say, 'Hey guys, I know we've always shared, but now this piece of land over here, you can't use it.' Even when it was a group of people making a decision to divide the land up (it was frequently one person with a bunch of thugs), what, fundamentally, gave them the right, without the consent of everyone, everywhere?

We still have laws that date back to this. If you build upriver from someone you can't take water from the river unless you make sure there is still enough for them to draw as much water as they have historically used. Mineral rights can be sold separately from land rights. It's possible to own the right to build a house on a piece of land, and for someone else to have the right to set up a pipe to suck the oil reserves out from under you if you only own some of the rights.

I tend to agree that the British need to reform their squatters rights, but at the same time, we rent mineral rights, grazing rights, water rights, etc. on public land, land owned by the people of the country collectively, for a fraction of their value to people who pay off the right politician, so we could use some reform too.

I've encountered Gypsies before. I went to the beach with some friends once, and some female Gypsies that could've been dispatched from a Hollywood casting office showed up from out of nowhere and tried to carry off one of my friend's nine year old granddaughter. They almost had her inside a waiting car before I intervened and pulled the girl out of their grasp. They tried to grab her again, and that was the first time I ever struck a woman. It was also the second, third, fourth, fifth times too. The Gypsies then backed away, flashed their tits at me (an infamous Gypsy curse), and tried to the girl away from me again.

By that time, my friends had caught up with me and had started fighting these insane women too when the sheriff deputies showed up. The Gypsy women told the sheriff deputies that they had only wanted to show their father this beautiful blonde little girl they had found. The sheriff deputies then put this down as a 'misunderstanding' and cut the Gypsies loose (where I was living at, our sheriff deputies rightly deserved a reputation for being just so f'n stupid). My friends and I never saw the Gypsies again, but word got out, and for the next month or so, nobody in our little community let their kids out of their sight, if out of their house. eventually, some of our rougher residents convinced the Gypsies to move on.

Gypsies are totally contemptuous of us non-Gypsies. If you want to get into their heads, try finding a genuine Gypsy restaurant first.

'Twas a gypsy wandering through Jerusalem that upon seeing Christ hung up on the cross , got to work and stole the nails from his hands and feet, relieving his pain. A greatful Jesus then granted the man and all his descendants permission to steal whatever they wanted for all time.

ALL OF THIS

I'm sure that somewhere there are romany and Irish travellers that turn up, park their vehicles, crime doesn't go up and they leave without making a mess, but I've never yet seen or heard of them. Live and let live, I say. If people want to live a nomadic lifestyle then be my guest. Just don't be a coont about it.

In one case, they parked right on a green hill. It then rained, they were evicted, so drove off, damaging the grass (the residents ended up going up there to flatten it out). Oh, and of course, they left all their rubbish. The other case, when they left, so did a load of new trees.

We heard a rumour that some gypsies had been checking out a field near us. We basically organised a watch on it with 3 people at a time guarding the field. If they tried to go in there, they'd have to drive over people and be filmed doing so. We were not going to have them anywhere near us. We then clubbed together and got a metal fence put behind the wooden one. Drive in the field now, but your vehicles are going to be in a pretty bad state if you do.
